Off-roading in my 2011 Overland

Mine isn't trail rated but I think I'll buy some skid plates soon.

Re: Off-roading in my 2011 Overland

Thanks guys. The first couple shots are in Sequoia National Park, the mud hole was a forest service road out to a meadow we had a picnic at. The last two shots are the shores of Lake Isabella. The lake was crazy low!

Awesome pics! I'm hoping to get our TrailHawk dirty this Spring and Summer. We're probably going to do the Jeep Jamboree in September as well.

Do you know if Jeep Jamboree requires skid plates? I'm assuming you need recovery points front/back.

This is from the 2015 site:
Quote:
Yes! The following is MANDATORY for all vehicles:

CB radio is MANDATORY! There are many safety issues regarding upcoming obstacles transmitted over the CB radio by your trail guides. It is required that each vehicle have a CB radio. Learn interesting facts about the area – history, local plant and wildlife, as well as exciting stories.

Jeep vehicles must have four-wheel drive with a low-range (4-LO) transfer case.

Front and rear tow points must be properly mounted to the frame with grade-eight bolts.

Drawbars, receiver hitches, or aftermarket bumpers with manufacturer-installed clevis or D-ring anchor points are acceptable alternates to tow points. If you don’t have tow points, you may be turned away without a refund.

All open-topped vehicles, including older models (CJs, Scramblers, and Willys), must have roll bars.

A full-size spare tire; a space-saver spare (donut) just won’t do.

Street legal vehicle with current license plate.

Do you recommend additional equipment?

Skid plates covering the oil pan, gas tank, and transfer case. Mandatory for the Rubicon Trail.

Rock rails for Jeep Liberty, Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, and Commander vehicles registered for higher-rated trails. Rock rails are iron moldings designed to protect your vehicle’s rocker sills from damage. Strongly advised for Jamborees with rocky terrain. Mandatory for the Rubicon Trail. Please contact the Jeep Jamboree USA office for additional information.
Heavy-duty, 20-foot nylon tow straps (7,000 lb max vehicle weight) with looped ends. TOW STRAPS WITH METAL HOOKS ARE NOT PERMITTED.
Body lifts/suspension lifts up to six inches (combined) are permitted. Running boards and snowplow frames are not permitted. Tires over 37 inches are not permitted. Participant is hereby notified they will be turned away at registration should they exceed these limits.
It looks like I may run into trouble with the rear tow point.
