Do you have armor? Skid plates? And are you towing it out here so you don't have to depend on it if it gets damaged?

I do not have armor or skid plates. I only have nerf bars on it. I do have a skid plate on the transfer case and gas tank. I will be towing the Jeep out there.

I'd look at either buying or building a skid plate for the oil pan and maybe something to protect your rockers. Not sure what your nerf bars are built from or how they're attached, but if they're not top notch, you might want to think about removing them before the rocks do it for you. Wink

Also, you'll want something to protect your differentials to keep from peeling back the covers.
