We just ran the Rubicon last month. Have fun out there.

If you don't already have them, get some rock rails. You'll need them.

Also a transfer case skid is always a wise thing to have even though I don't recall ever hitting mine too bad on the 'Con. But I found LCA skids and a HD diff cover or guard for your D30 to be very useful and I would have regretted not having them.

I think I hit my transfer case skid, LCA skids, AND HD diff cover. Funny how I forgot to mention those items. Definitely armor up as much as you can.

Better get started now. Thats a ton of work to do in a month especially if you have a job and other priorities.
