Now this is something that I would love to do. So many different terrains, really pushing the vehicle to it's limits. Would anyone else be down to give this a go with their new JL ?

Wouldn't want to go into the bogs in case my Wrangler gets trapped in the mud, even with a set of Nitto tires. But everything else is fair game. Unfortunately, I live nowhere near Alaska and the drive there would take me a week or two.

Too bad the Nitto Trail Grapplers cost an arm and a leg for a full set.

Just make sure you go in a group that way if you get stuck there will be more than enough people by ready and waiting to pull someone out, everyone is on the same team, they'll even spot you.

Depending on the size, you're looking at around $300 each tire and that's not including tax and shipping. If trail riding is a common occurrence with you and the price isn't really an object, the the Nitto Trail Grappler may be an option.

Stock are generally fine for me and Jeep will definitely offer other factory tire options.

Definitely looks extremely fun but I'd rather not go out to something that extreme. I'll stick to regular trails and what not where I can feel a good bit of bumpiness but nothing that'll potentially get me stuck in mud.

Part of that is learning how to take on certain trails. You'd be surprised at trails people go on that seem very risky but it's all about execution. Going with someone that knows and someone that can spot you goes a long way.

Having the help or an instructor, or both is a huge help in these things. That being said, practice makes perfect. Now as it's probably not everyone's cup of tea to go out and do these things, you work within your interest. If it looks too extreme for you and you really don't care to even get out there and try it then don't.

For those of you who don't plan to go off road much, but still hit the occasional trail then the Goodyear Duratrac/Kelly Safari TSr/Fierce Attitude tires may be an option. all of them perform well both on and off road and they look great too.

The Duratracs are great tires, perfect to handle winter time, dry road, and the occasional trails. Nice all around performance without having to commit to a super knobby tire that'll make you have to give up on road noise and feel.
