The Mounds in Mt. Morris Michigan

I just purchased a 2004 Wrangler. The jeep is stock with 5 speed manual and 4.0 L engine. It has P225/75R15 OWL AT tires. I was wondering if this jeep would be ok to take to the mounds or is it better to have a modified jeep?

I've seen stockers out there back when I would hit those trails in my old pickup. They could hold their own pretty well... much better than my Ford did.

In another week when the Mounds open up to Jeeps/Trucks go give it a shot. Take a buddy and a few tow straps *just in case* but if you pay attention you should be able to do fine.
And it'll be a good learning experience to see what mods you want to blow your income on next.

Take a tow strap for sure, you'll absolutely need it.

Also, be very, VERY careful of where you go. What seems to be a shallow hole will quickly hydrolock your Jeep. Just follow someone who's been there or test the hole before going through.
