What can I do to get my Jeep ready for some off roading adventures?

Query by gfrunyon4: What can I do to get my Jeep ready for some off roading adventures?
I am obtaining ready to carry my stock 1999 4cyl 5 speed Jeep Wrangler on a green/blue train guided off roading occasion at Rausch Creek Off Street Park. What can/should I do to get my Jeep up and working in prime situation and put together it for all of the abuse that is off roading? Back links would be excellent! Thanks.

If there is nothing incorrect with it run it as is. A couple factors to make confident you have ahead of you go, one make sure you have recovery factors (tow hooks in front and back) 2 a tow strap. Other then that i say go out and have a fantastic time.

    Green trails are usually fire roads or equivalent. I used to live up an old logging road you’d probably call a green, visitors would regularly lose mufflers and occasionally high-center full sized pickups, we even had to tow out a lifted Wrangler one time–it got high-centered axle-deep in a puddle. I used to drive that road in a Honda Civic wagon, which would bottom out regularly, though I only got it stuck once. You can handle these trails in a stock compact car if you pay attention and know what you’re doing. A stock Wrangler will have no problems unless you do something foolish.

    I’d say the most important thing is to have your vehicle in decent running condition. Don’t go off-roading in a car that will leave you stranded on dry pavement. Carry a tool kit, a winch or come-along, and a couple jugs of water. Good tires and a spare are absolutely a must!

    Blue trails are a little more rugged, take things slow and use a spotter for anything you’re not absolutely sure about. It wouldn’t hurt to add a lift kit, taller tires (pref. with double-walls and snow or mud tread), upgraded shocks–but I’m not sure if any of that is actually necessary. Pick your lines well and you’ll be ok.

    Cann and dir are right, and if you are camping over night, cold beer and big cuts of tri-tip.
    Jeepers don’t drink and drive but know how to relax at the end of the day on a day of trail driving.
    Tread lightly and keep it green for the next guys
