Are you running real off-road tires or walmart trying to look cool AT's? Having the right equipment will drastically eliminate problems. this not an area for thin side walled street tires. with the exception of the tires , straps are about all you'll really need since you'll have a buddy rig along.

lol !  ...   I call the 'WalMart trying to look cool ATs' - 'Dummer H2/H3 with 20s'.
:vomit: there are NO tire/wheel combo's to make one of those cool. :eusa_snooty:

Because of scheduling problems, we probably won't be able to get there until mid-may, early June (hottest time, rainy season?), so we'll have to take that into consideration when planning routes.

late may/early june will be hot, almost the hottest time of the year. rain won't start until august.

Expect daytime temps in the desert to get well over 100 in May and June. Wide-brimmed hats, sunscreen, and plenty of fluids are an absolute necessity at that time of year.

I am now, officially, a kid with his nose pressed against the glass of the candy store window.  The Jeep is ready!  New tires, extra spare mounted, carburetor replaced, engine tuned, jerry cans and hi-lift jack on the rack, extra water container in place, dash cam ready .....  And 31 days of waiting ahead of me!  The Sirens of BBNP and BBRSP are singing their seductive songs. 
Still haven't nailed down the itinerary, but the planning is part of the fun.  So many roads, so little time.
