    no motels on the trail and it would be a long ass day to make it thru in a day. So yes camping but there is awesome camp spots. You need to be totally self sufficient on the trail as help is not a phone call away as there is no cell service.

      It would be tight be quite possible. I did a 5 day, multiple destinations, camping trip out of a 2015 Challenger SRT8. It probably has similar cargo room as a TJ.

        We had an LJ on 33" in our group make it...but he's wheeled this trail for 30 years...

        FCA was doing a commercial while we were there...and a bone stock Grand Cherokee was doing the trail same direction as us from Loon Lake...and an army of rock stackers accompanied them...

        So to answer your question?... I would say yes, but expect some rocker panel damage, and check your steering components before heading out on the highway...

How did everything work on the trail (RTT, awning, fridge/freezer, etc.)? Anything that you would change/recommend? Here's a link to more pictures of the Rubicon trail. http://forum.aev-conversions.com/sho...t=9227&page=23
          ARB fridge is a blessing...no ice to carry. Helps to have dual Optima yellowtops with an isolator (which I did)...and next time, I'd leave the rooftop tent at home to be lighter & lower cog...

          I'm going to run it with my JK6 next year with 40's...it'll be easier. Just shipped my Anvil JKU to Hawaii...

            An LJ on 33's should be better than a stock jk. I'm jonsing for an LJ.
