    Im pretty sure I read somewhere that the Wrangler Rubicon can complete the trail without assistance. IIRC, it has an RTI of 821 right off the show room. 32" tires. sliders, and skids, along with the gearing, and I don't see why it wouldn't, given a competent driver.

    But what if they did make a trail edition? That would be cool

    I say we need an up to date trail condition by the end of this season and see what they fixed. Like I have said I have heard they are hauling in a bunch of road filler ,are moving a bunch of big boulders, and doing tractor grading work.

    The harder areas may end up still being there, but I bet you there will be some really nice by-pass roads. It almost sounded like they were rebuilding the road to be near what it originally was before eroding and "enthusiasts" pushing big boulders into the road.

    True Story: A Yukon Denali made it to the top of Mt. McKinley. Not a regular Yukon though that got stuck halfway up the trail.
