A consolidated list:
-NEVER go alone, especially if it's your first time.
-Always let the experienced person go first, observe how they go through the trail.
-Get a high lift jack- you will need it eventually, and more often than not, it's right after you get it, or when you take it out.
-Get a tow strap. Not with metal hooks, a strap, 30,000lb is preferred.
-Bring SNACKS, always. Because the trail munchies are the worst. Don't forget water.
-Make sure your cell phone is charged.
-Fill your gas tank.
-Air down your tires, 20-25psi will be perfectly fine with those tires.
-Keep in gear when in deep water. If you stall out, let it die, restart in gear. The JK's should have a clutch cancel start in 4 low.
-Use your head above all. If you think you can't make it through, you probably can't. That doesn't mean your Jeep won't be able to motor through, worst case scenario is you have your buddy drive through it.
All about that unibody life.
