                    Just out of curiosity would a stock Rubicon be able to make it across the Rubicon?

                      Great pictures. The Rubicon trail is a must-do for anyone who loves Jeeping and camping. Always good to see a really nicely built up Jeep used the way it was designed for. 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

                        The simple answer is yes, a stock Rubicon is perfectly capable of running the Rubicon trail. Your level of off road experience and that of the group that you run the trail with will determine how scratch/dent free you are at the end of the trail. There are more than a few rock gardens with large boulders, ledges and drop offs along the trail. Bigger tires and a lift kit would certainly help, but Jeep tests each new model on the trail. That's what the Jeep Trail Rated badge is all about. At the very least, I'd recommend AEV's rear diff skid plate. Next on the list would be a set of their diff covers. After that, run the trail and see what needs to be upgraded/replaced at the end. At least one vehicle in your group should have a winch and we usually select one person to carry a Hi-Lift jack. It's a great trail.

                          I think running a stock Rubicon would make for an unenjoyable trip,especially if you don't like the sound of rocks and metal scraping. Also if running stock a great spotter would be a must. I guess you could do it during a jamboree where they have lots of spotters and rock stackers. I think you'd be happier with a lift and 33-35's.

                              Is camping required to do the trail or its optional ? I am sure you get to enjoy more with camping but I am curious how Tj guys are fitting all the stuff in the jeep especially with 2 passengers (wife and a Kid).
