This is what Iwould do since you have the lift and tires in order of priority for this trail

Sliders - I have the Slee step sliders and like them much better compared to the tubesliders on my daugfhters truck

Slee Xcase Skid Plate

I would not run Chinamans without the above two items

Next I would get a bumper. I like the ARB because of the bars on top which saved my truck when another car hit it. I know a guy who hit a dear on the highway and suffered no damage. Get the one for the winch and you can always get a winch later. Enough people in the club have winches so you can wait on this. Some like the short bus bumper better though. Its a personal preference thing.

The AC Dryer skid plate. I ran for two years without one, but Nay here was behind me and smacked his AC Dryer and had no AC. Expensive to fix, skid plate is cheap. You can also relocate the AC Dryer and move it up out of the way.

A Tow strap and two D Rings. This will get you out of most places as long as there is another truck there.

An air compressor of CO2 setup

This will bring you up to the amount you have

If you want to spend a few more bucks, a Slee rear bumper and then your set for almost anything.


My 2 cents

I think the 93 and 94 are different

Slee Step sliders new are $935 and an ARB winch Bumper is $874

If I can get all the stuff I need to take care of done, I may make this run.

I have a guy who works for me who has a Jeep. He is a really good guy, not sure he would be welcome on a rally run.

Trail Leader?

Call Slee Off-Road and see what they have in stock. If you do nothing else, get sliders.
