Default how capable is it?

So ive been wheeling for a while now, and im starting to get into more rock crawling. im curious as to what exactly a rig like mine has been put through. So im asking for pics. if you have a xj on 33x12x15 tires, locked in the front, with sliders, 3.5" front and 4.5" rear lift, please post pictures or video of you wheeling on rocks... similar rigs welcome just ad specifications please.

I've done a lot of stuff on 33s with 4.5" of lift. You should probably invest in some diff covers, because mine definitely have met a lot of rocks. The only way to really see how capable it is would be to go out and see what it can do with you driving it. The more ***** you have, the more the Jeep can do.

Somewhat close. 3.5" on 33x10.50s with 2x6 rocker sliders, high clearance bumpers, belly skids, diff covers and a rear locker and it did very well on the rocks. 10.50s don't give a big footprint so on the rocks it was rougher than my 35s now. Skid plates and diff covers are needed for sure if you want to play all day on the rocks.
