what do you guys think, go or no go?

I have a stock 08 jk x 2 door soft top. I did install Rubicon springs, shocks wheels and bfg m/t tires which gave me about an inch 1/2 lift. I ran caribou and eldrado mount and they were both super easy, this Thursday I get to go up again and was thinking about coney flats and st. Vrain mid. So the question is do you think my stocker can handle it? And what trails would you say my jeep will not be able to do.

Yes it can handle it if you don't mind scraping your Skids and diffs

I have a totally stock 2008 Rubicon Wrangler 2dr with dual tops. (However, my hard-top was only used for one season so far) and have managed Caribou, MSV and many others with ease. I have also done many more trails which would be rated a lot more difficult out in Moab. Your Jeep can do a lot more than you think it can do...

Don't feel bad. I feel like a failure as a driver because a more experienced driver would actually be able to put it to the test. Take your time and learn your vehicle. You own a beast!

You lost me on the tires tho .... The Rubicons came with BFG M/T's. Did you buy it used? Why would you have to replace them?

Get out there and and have fun!
