Kali_jeep, you stole my jeep!!! =P

Mine made it through a good 6-7" of snow, having one tire drop into a 10" rut under the snow and got out with only slight effort(throw into D, R, D, turn wheels a couple times and completely freed) with some plain jane AT's, bone stock. also pulled an empty 18' empty uhaul box truck out of the exact same stuff. does very rough dirt terrain with very mild difficulty. never had a problem so far except for trying to do some racing type evasion and stop moves on wet pavement(local idiot drivers, enough said).
They will take you just about anywhere. Just be sure to have a friend with a winch for when you find those places it won't go

One time I crawled into some mud in 2WD and tried to get myself stuck. Floored it to try and dig in, put it in 4Lo to break traction easily and get the fronts dug in. Crawled out, disappointed that I didn't have an excuse to use my new tow strap. My buddy then tried to drive his Isuzu through it. Got stuck. Got to use my new tow strap. This was shortly after the budget boost and running street tires from a Wrangler. Traction: check.

With the lift and 32" tires I was able to get some pretty substantial flex with swaybars still connected. I'd say enough to get a 2" lifted Wrangler in as much trouble. Articulation: check.

It maneuvers nice and tight, nothing to say. Check.

I haven't forded it yet, so I can't say.

We'll say it's just shy of Trail Rated

At stock ride height with 29" (255/65R16) A/Ts, I got mine through a bunch of greens and a few blues at Rausch. I got it stuck once and found one rock garden I couldn't get through, but it did pretty well overall.

ARB makes air lockers. Thats killer man. I dunno if you know much about them but between that and the pump to run it, its prob like 1200$ new. ARB's are solid units too, they make a good product

don't know much about them other then what i tested in the mud and once i had someone press the button on me in a parking lot, and when i started turning my jeep, it started to skip, meaning it was catching the inside wheel and making the other one work with it, not sure if i am explaining correctly....

anyway to find out more about it, like any place i can look to see if it is ARB or something else? sorry No0b here and where is the pump, can i easily find that as well?

wow, learning a bunch here tonight - thanks EVERYONE!!!!

If its an ARB pump it would prob be under the hood, I think they are like a baby blue color. About as big as a couple DVD cases stacked on one another.
