I have some of the same interest. I'm not really looking to wheel or mud, but I've had to way out in the boonies and I would like practice in a controlled setting.
Since it wasn't my intention to wheel I went with a 2.5" lift and Duratrac 35's.
It would be nice to boogy with some other folks and see what this JK can do.
Hey Balu4k, I'm in Bellevue, maybe we could sync up and attend one of the meets, or just head down some trails and get muddy. If you're interested send me a PM.
