So got my first pinstripes this weekend.  Buffed one or two out, mostly they looked worse than they were.  We were on (legal, with permission) private land in VT.  Took a basic 4X4 course with my younger brother (Cherokee trailhawk that got pulled out twice then parked while we played on fun stuff).  The Rubicon impressed the heck out of me.  I know I will be the weak link in our ability for a good long time, but she just pulled up and through stuff that I was amazed she did without complaint and without any real skill or input required from me. 
I'm gonna need to get a lot braver before I start pushing it' limits!   Oh, and I need a winch and a lift and tires and wheels.  And tougher skids.

  And tougher skids.   

Armor is one of the most important, and often overlooked modifications.  No point in spending the money on a nice Jeep if you don't protect it
