Honest opinion for Rattlesnake/5-mile

Hello guys. I just bought this 2008 FJ. I have seen some of the YouTube vids of you guys on Rattlesnake and didn't know if my rig would be capable of the trail as it is. Wanted an honest opinion.

No armor to my knowledge. OME lift with 285/70r17 BFG AT's. I have the auto trans with Atrac/locker.

What do you guys think? Minimal gear I would want for the run?

I'd get rock sliders (real ones, like allPro, DeMello, or such....). Air down a bit and go have fun. choose your lines carefully. I am assuming you have the stock underarmour...if no underarmour at all I would not go.

2010 FJC 4X4 AT, K&N air filter, 305/70/17 MT/Rs or Duratracs, NestahEdition Firestik II antenna, AllPro rock sliders, TRS HID headlights, Stebel Nautilus marine, Icon Stage 5, Total Chaos UCAs, ExpeditionOne WyoOtto bumper with Warn Zeon 10S and PIAA 510 Xtreme, Spidertrax 1.25" spacers, BMC, Ellis Precision stuff, AllPro spindle gussets, FJToyman shock skids, Boztec rear diff skid, Infinity speakers w rattle trap, Budbilt skids

I likely have the stock stuff. I see some shields and such, just nothing substantial like I see on here.

Looking into sliders now, so I can use a Hi Lift setup too.

Thanks for your input.
