If you don't have an on-board welder in your group, take down this contact for in case you get in a bind out there. It might be a good backup to keep his contact info anyway. The owner is David Beam. We met him on the Rubicon Trail last summer. He volunteers every year at Jeepers Jamboree as a spotter. He can do trail recovery and fixes (welding).

If it helps, here's a compilation of GPS tracks and waypoints for the Rubicon Trail and access roads leading to and from the trail.

And here's a video from last summer.

|YjKalamity||If you are at all handy with a welder it is never a bad idea to bring an on-board welder with you. My buddy always takes one with him on the extreme trails, along with the things Lorie said. A spare oil filter is a good idea as well.|

|RadarRob2012||That video was way too much fun. I really enjoyed the guy in the orange jeep at the end who likes the skinny pedal as much as I do. Lol|

I'd be carrying at least an axle shaft and U-joints..fluids..find out what everyone else is bringing so you don't have to bring everything. That way if something goes wrong, everybody together will have all bases covered.
How fun was that video!

You'll be fine as long as you don't go for the bonus points. Even better if you regear and throw a locker at it.
Watch this video. Classic and just puts me in a good mood every time I watch it. Your Jeep is more capable than you know.
Carry some spare parts and watch your spotter.
Enjoy the video!

Thinking about the Rubicon
I have a 2004 LJ with 4 inch lift with 33 inch MTR's, 8K winch and Rock Sliders, and I am thinking about doing the Rubicon this fall. Is it do able without too much drama?? I am thinking about regearing and putting an E Locker in the rear. What are my chances of having a good trip???
