ok, so I like to take my jeep up to the sand dunes, and in when in sand dunes edventually one gets the desire to be able to jump the dunes, so my question is if i were to do this (at the momment i ask solely out of curosity) what would i like break? Also, i would like to make my jeep as durable as possible with out breaking the bank, what parts should i start considering buying that would give me the most bang for my buck durability wise. (excluding a lift)
i know this is a lot, but i have been turning this over and over in my mind for a while...

The things that most immediately come to my mind would be that you would want to trust up your axles so that you have less of a chance to bend them when jumping. Also I would say that having correct length bumpstops would be very important so that you you are not ripping shocks and shock mounts off the axle.

as stated axle tubes could bend, also front ball joints are going to be taking a lot more abuse. Might want some limiting straps as well, Oh and seats, some sort air suspension seat.. like a master craft.

Don't forget to have as many sponsors as you can find, to help you with the cost of rebuilding it everytime you go out there. Have many, many spare parts.

luckly havent broke yet (but like i sorta said, i dont jump right now, infact i try quite hard not to go air born because of the rather stock state of my suspension)..................

Shucks, we have sand dunes perd near all along the coast, however the only dunes accessible ORV's is at Silver Lake. And I know its tiny tinny compaired to other Sand dunes accessible by ORV's, but its all I've got, and I love them.
