New guy here..Cliffs

Hi-

I have a stock 97 Cherokee and was thinking of heading to Cliffs to check it out. It's about an hour for me so not bad. My concern is having a stock truck and no experience at Cliffs...recipe for disaster? I plan on modding my truck slowly..but itching to get this thing dirty.

Thoughts?

You could probably do trail one, without much issue, but it is winter, and some holes can be hiding under the snow (if there's any left). After trail one you'd have to decide on your own what you are capable of. I'd hook up with someone though. Make sure you have tow points, front and rear, and a tow strap....DON'T rely on others to have the equipment to pull you out.
