Put my stock rig to the test and WOW!

got together with some guys from a local Jeep forum and went to play in the forest.
2 '01 Grand Cherokee, one with 4" lift, one with 2 1/2"
1 Dodge Durango with 4" lift and serious tires
1 '08 Wrangler 4 door with brand new 35" mudders and Bead locks

I was able to go almost anywhere they could and I just can't believe the QuadraTrack II sustem, had it in 4L only going downhill on the shale, the rest of the time it was amazing.

Did I mention the 5 1/2 hours it took to dig out my stock Commander and the most capable rig, the JK with new tires? Nobody had a winck or comealong so it was a lot of digging and yanking.

A lift and tires is all you need now.

And a winch, apparently. Its funny because that situation is the same type that ignited my obsession with a lift, tires and winch. I got stuck in my stock Commander in some heavy, deep snow.

I really don't want a winch only because I will have to get rid of this rig in the next 3 years. If GetLost gets his winch point going I can put that on without too much alteration to the front bumper.

Why do you have to get rid of it? Lease?

Here is the pics and video taken by one of the guys we were with. I noticed he only videoed me being stuck, not the hyped up JK
