Lol, yeah... That's how I used to drive the Mustang...
3 transmissions, 3-4 rear ends.. A couple sets of rear control arms, torque boxes torn to hell...
I'd like to avoid these kind of things this time around!
But then again, where's the fun in that!!?

You will be fine just know your limits and like stated bring a good tow strap. You might not be able to go everywhere but you can go enough places to have fun

x2 when my TJ was stock on 28' street tires it went better than some of my buddies with 31" ats. You will be surprised what a stock jeep will do and ull have a blast testing its limitations

It tough to say. This time of year it's difficult to predict just what conditions will be like. It could warm up and be wet and sloppy. It could stay cold and be frozen solid. It could snow a bunch.

Just find someone to follow and you'll be fine.

For those that don't know, the main reason I didn't start this thread it because I am now working in the Chicago area, and the project I'm working on has due dates around the same time, so I could not be certain if I would be able to get back to MI to do this. I am very happy that someone else has taken this on. I hope it turns out great, and maybe if things go well I'll be able to make it, if not this year maybe next.
