My second trip offroad was with a Jeep Jamboree, and tow hooks are required for those. I use a frame-mounted class III receiver for my recovery point on the rear. I wouldn't know where to safely attach the strap without tow hooks if the need arose.

I was running 235/75R15 tires when I installed my two-inch lift. They were cheap tires, relatively speaking, and two had tread separation; but it was still an expensive decision to upgrade to five (gotta have a full-size spare for the trail) new BFG AT KO 31-inch tires. I went with all-terrain tires because I was still using the vehicle as my daily driver at that time, wanted to keep the noise and vibes down, and as now, rarely went offroad. Unfortunately, I can't afford to switch to mud tires now.

Besides your lift, do you have any other planned modifications for your Jeep?

Hey, Mountain Man. I'm sending you a private message so we don't hi-jack NewtonGT's thread.

I understand completely. Getting a jeep trail-ready can be an expensive and slippery slope. And there are a lot of opinions about what's necessary to go off road.

BTW, I just read in a Georgia thread that there's a place called Durhamtown Plantation about 2 1/2 hours south of Greenville, a little ways past Athens. That's a half hour closer than Uwharrie NF in NC, and they say Durhamtown has 20 miles of OHV trails, I believe.

Still, Gulches ORV Park is only about an hour from Greenville, and we need to support them if we want to keep this local park from shutting down.
