Is there anything that I need or is suggested ?
If you cant afford the lift or tires or winch, i suggest liquid courage. Threeb says he can get a case of keystone for like $7.00. That will get you thru most of the obstacles on the trail.

If increase the bump stop length it create more chassis flex.

You'd be surprised what a stock jeep is able to do, i sure was it is huge fun and i assure you will have a blast. plus if anything does happen, everyone is more then willing to help you out. i had a slight idle problem and 8 brains are better then 1 . got it fixed in a few minutes, then we all got back to wheelin . hey im all stock too so if we both get stuck, you wont be the only one filthy dirty on the trail hahaha. its gonna be a blast !

If something happens to my Jeep, I want it to be while these guys are around. You are safer on the trail than off!

Yeah, dude. It exploded.

You know I thought I would use it in our last trip and didn't. I'll be damned if some guy didnt flag me down for a tow off the 4 lane as soon as I made it back in the city limits. Just pulled him, no winch.

I went to some local forest roads today and checked them out. Went through a deeper than I though mud puddle and got a gash in my sidewall(less than 3k miles on tire). GREAT way to get into wheeling. Also busted my front FSU license plate I just bought a week ago. Did love seeing(and people checking out) the jeep covered in mud though.

You cannot get a sidewall patched on the inside can you ?
