Until you get a good boost and tires, just stay off the Rubicon trail itself and you can laugh at the Tacomas and Rovers you pass on the others.
I have about the least capable off road Jeep (Sport S with no limited slip, all season tires, no mods) and I spent a fair amount of time this weekend offroading around our hunting property, which was covered in about 4" of snow over muddy ruts, etc.
I had zero problems going anywhere, and at one point scampered up a steep snow-covered hill that a TRD Tundra had to back down and re-try. I was in 4 Hi. If your goal is to go on challenging trails offroading for the sake of offroading, you might want some upgrades, but if you're like me and you offroad incidentally in support of other hobbies, you'll almost certainly be just fine.
I have the same problem. Every time I think about swapping out for a more aggressive tire I try to think about what terrain I've been on that the AT Adventures couldn't handle... and cant think of it. I'm holding on to mine for a while.Hello. To raise a dead thread.... I took my JLU Sahara with GY ATA tires down to southern Ohio yesterday. I was astonished at what it could do for off camber situations, a huge 30 degree hill climb on silt, and in the slop, and nothing to speak of on damage except a little rash on a rear bumper corner.
I am used to a lifted 4Runner and this would beat the pants off it 10/10 times. Again. No lift. NoT MTs. Did a great job on the hills and the rocks. Wow. Really nice job Jeep.
