G-Pur agreed. Stockers are very capable. If you want to go on the beach, I'd suggest more of a mud terrain tire. Wooded trails do better with all terrains, but the mudders do well there, too. The stock tires aren't really meant of off roading.

Never go offroad alone. Go with someone who has done it before, if possible.

Have fun!

InfernoGirl You need to make sure you have recovery points, a recovery strap, and a shovel is always helpful. Take a buddy in a 4x4 with you to pull you out if you get stuck, but a stock Jeep is very capable, especially if you use your common sense. Stock tires will be your biggest detriment. They're usually slicker than snot....

ddbowdoin just a side note... is there much difference in gear or the way you set your rig up for wooded trails versus beach riding? If I had to choose, I'd rather go beach driving as I just love the ocean.

Not New to Jeeps, New to Wranglers/Off Road

Hey all, pretty much a newbie here. Wanted to say hello to all the locals. My first car was a 1997 Cherokee my parents bought me when I was college (picked it in 2006 with around 90K on it).

I wanted a Wrangler for a long time but just couldn't get a deal on one, guess I was not interested in an older higher mileage car. Well, finally picked up a brand new sport this past Saturday.

I'm trying to put together a list of some modifications that would help me take the Jeep off road. Like I said, I'm pretty new to this so I apologize if the question is a little open.

Where would you start with a fresh Jeep, I am on a bit of a budget so the best bang for the buck is kind of important. I figured I would just start on smaller and easier trails and work to something harder.
