Big tires, cut the fenders/body/whatever to make them fit. Weld the rear diff and wheel the shit out of it!

Nice ride, orvis is pretty rare.

I'd probably suggest starting by changing tranny/diff/transfer case fluids and engine oil right off the bat so you know you got good stuff in there.

The 5.2's tranny is pretty bulletproof so it should last you awhile I may be wrong but I believe there is a Mopar ECU upgrade for the 5.2 which makes it a little more fun to drive (or am I confusing it with the 5.9?)

I worded that wrong in a way. By mall crawlers i meant guys with huge bracket lifts and huge tires. Regardless, my IFS 4runner on 31" bfg mud terrains locked rear could out wheel my buddies YJ open/open on 35's same bfg's before we got his lockers working.. Apples to oranges I know but I've seen it a million times. Open diffs suck, lift and tires don't do much when you one tire fire on every obstacle. Hammering down can work but I'm not big on trail fixes. A good set of tires and just 1 locker can get you through some shit. But I like hard trails so keep in mind I'm not talking fsr's with small washouts. Just my 1.39

4 inch lift will be plenty.

my personal suggestion would be to go with the goodyear wrangler duratracs instead of the bfg mudders (i assume you mean the MT's). the duratracs will be a better all round tire, provide plenty of offroad traction but has the added benefit of having the mountain snowflake symbol which means it is very capable in snow (would also allow it to qualify as a snow tire at road checks on the way to hope or whistler)


a locker is an air or electrically actuated mechanism which locks the front or rear differential (depending on where its installed). the locking of the differential will basically distribute power 50/50 so that each tire is getting power. on an open diff system, the tire which spins the most freely will get most of the power. meaning that if you have a tire up in the air or in slick mud that tire will get all the power and you will stay stuck. if the diff lock is engaged it distributes the power to both wheels and will aid in getting you out of stucks. lockers are also a good preventative measure (i like to engage my locker for water crossings where i'm not sure what the bottom is made up of). lockers, lift and tires would be the best thing you can do for your off road rig.


as you venture out to other/farther/more challenging places you might wanna pick up some tools. basic hand tools are a good idea, a grease gun and knowing where the grease points are on the drive shaft and u-joint (good to do after water/mud crossings on extended trips), and a hi-lift jack and stands (if you plan on spending a decent amount of time in challenging trails).

cb radio can be helpful as well if you're travelling in a convoy of sorts but a VHF would be king. alot of the forest service roads (fsr) have active logging going on and have a vhf frequency channel posted. VHF also allows you to do call outs at the mile markers to allow oncoming trucks to know that you'll be heading there way. if you dont have VHF the standard is to drive with your headlights on and be careful.

if you plan on venturing out solo, recovery tools should be brought as well.


feel free to ask more questions
