Thanks....I wanted to hear if the Rubicon trail is do-able stock. I ran my slightly lifted YJ up it years ago with no damage. I was a bit worried about testing the rock rails on my JKUR having the long WB. But it's about the same as my old 92 Bronco that made the run stock years ago.

I'd put diff covers and oil pan skids on it, Pull the plastic front dam and relocate the vacuum pump.

To earn the trail rated badge each jeep has to traverse the rubicon unassisted and complete it

I'm actually looking for a wrecked 10a I can cannibalize. I have my sources checking a couple times a week. I want the front bumper and steel skid plate.

Otherwise....I'm going to do the same underside protection I did on my Bronco and YJ. I didn't alter the ride heights on either very much and both did quite well over the rocks. Slow go in 4 lo is the rule.

I just purchased the TnT AL belly armor system, LCA skids and a winch. Our trails here are pretty decent but I plan on putting on the skids saturday and wheeling the crap out of it sunday. I'll let you know lol. Its stock height/wheels
