Tires will be your biggest issue. Stock TJ's with STOCK tires were pulled out about 10 times each. 50% Mud 50% dry and rutted. LOTS of mud, lots of fun!! If you have some sort of mud terrain tires you will be better off. If you go, stay on the Green trails and make sure you have a tow strap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks - I didn't notice this pic on here until now - I tried to stay out of that rut - but then the front end slid right in.

Yeah - it was very muddy - I was pulled out 8 or 9 times I think. But I went through the same spots a second time without incident (I just went a bit faster and slid thru them). My mud shovel is still packed even after a couple washings. I might need to remove the skid plate to clean it out.

I still feel that a 2" lift would have kept my frame from sitting on the ground like it did every time I was stuck.
(Thanks to Eric in the photo for willing to take his not-so-stock rig along with us stockers, I made use of his rear tow hook :D)
