At first I thought you were going to discuss deez, as opposed to doz. Then I just figured you must have dozed off. Glad you came back and cleared it up.

They are pretty much perfect right out of the box. As toads and for trails rated up to 4 or so, when you start doing the 8 and 9 rated trails they need some help.

Lots of folks also like the look of a rock crawler without having the expense of keeping it running and the body damage.

jeep liberty

We tow a 08 jeep liberty 4x4 4 door, we use a stowmaster hitch with hidden / removable attachments on the jeep. Very easy to hook up and easy to disengage the transmission. It pulls really good. Thank goodness the camera keeps a good eye on it or you would not know it was there

I was once accused of having bad grammar. I told the person that it just wasn't and that my grammar was actually a very nice old lady.

Just buy a Rubicon and you will be fine for trails up to a 9 rated trail. If mine won't do a trail, I just stay off. I had a trailer queen that I off-roaded for 9 years and got it out of my system. It had Ford 9 inch axles front and rear, 39.50 X 13 tires, Atlas transfer, hydro steering, and hydro brakes and on and on. Fun but way too expensive.

this is the face of 300k on the odometer, and ZERO issues... ever. Over the course of those hard miles, it has only needed the basics (tires, oil changes etc). And yes, this thing has been bashed along some scary terrain in bone-stock trim. Not many can say that about their rides.

Yep, those old I-6 engines were good for 300K+ with regular oil changes. That's one good looking, well maintained TJ!

Old dude, I'm guessing Texas must use a trail rating system that goes to 15?

OP here's the rating system that most folks use. I've lead stock JK 2dr Rubicons with good drivers over 7 rated trails without too many issues, the 4drs need a lift at that rating due to breakover angles.
