My question is, how do yall feel about actually off-roading your 1 year old 50K JL?
Once all the upgrades are in... That price is another 10 grand after lift, bead lock wheels, fenders,fender wells, bumpers front and back and of course a winch. The 2021 JLU cost 59,000 out the door. You can bet with this investment to make the vehicle more trail worthy, it will see lots of off-roading. However it will not be crawling over rocks the size of houses... Having owned and gone off-road in the old 95' Wrangler, I've learned the hard way to use some common sense if I want this Jeep to last.
Everything is fixable, and luckily wrangler has so many after market choices and take off buy opportunities fixing them isn’t that expensive... be smart be responsible but have fun.. also many not all insurances will cover you Offroad ... so verify if you have coverage and get after it
Received my JLUR last month. Went to Rausch Creek ORP two weeks ago with 900miles on the clock. Did the green trails with a buddy. Bent front plate, couple bashes on the skidplates and pinstripes. Collecting first BOH badge
Already planning next trip in June and then Island State Park in September for a little fishing.

I have no issues ripping off the road and enjoying a nice thrill ride. There is just something about accomplishing that 4 wheel trail that has some unique obstacles to maneuver. You bought a jeep man! Use it for what it's for.
