Wheelin with jeeps

Who all on here regularly wheels with jeeps in their ranger? Im going to join a local off road club and 99% of them have jeeps everywhere from mild to wild. I was gonna buy me a jeep for a play toy but decided instead to dump that money into my ranger hoping I could hang with these guys. Let me know what you all have done to hit the woods with a bunch of jeeps. Thanks guys.

I use to all the time with my Ranger and my Sport Trac.
Both were body lifted with rear shackles and 33x12.50s, I always aired down and disconnected the sway bars. The sport trac was better because it was locked front and rear, but did very well even with just the rear locker.

you will probably do better than the jeep on steep hill climbs since the longer wheel base and that also helps sometimes when the ruts are dug out to a jeeps wheelbase.

You will be able to keep up in most situations but get some tow points
