Re: offroading with my 2wd Laredo

Sounds like you had better luck than me. I got stuck in wet sand for 2 hours before someone in a legit off road jeep pulled me out. I found this the other day, it looks like it could really work, I haven't gotten it yet though...

Also you can take off your front air dam, really easy todo. Just 4 plastic pieces you turn 90 degrees and then come out then the air dam slides out

This. I was out in Colorado with my parents this summer and my dad and I did basically the entire Alpine Loop in 2WD in his 2006 LJ 6-speed (no lift, but he runs 31x10.5 BFG A/T's). It was still fairly wet from snow melt (we went in late June). We did Cinnamon Pass from Lake City to Silverton and then Engineer Pass on the way back. The only time we needed 4WD wasn't due to a traction issue, but we needed 4-LO for the gearing to get up the very steep section near the summit.

I was absolutely amazed at the off road performance of his Jeep in 2WD.

I would love to see the damage these ^^^ cause.
I got me these: TRED 800 (cheaper than MaxTrax) but similar purpose and design.
