Welcome @BENNY THOMAS to your place for everything to do with cars.

I am glad you are deciding to join us for your first taste of off-road driving. We will soon post an absolute newbie training which will help you understand the basics and know your Keep Grand Cherokee that much better. Is it the penta star V6 or the V8 version?

Be very cautious with the lower lip of your bumper, better to remove before you come and try to find out the fuse for your ABS and airbag. Better to remove those while off-roading.

Best to have a flag, radio and air compressor to start with. You will find more information here...

@Rahimdad gave you some excellent advice, but more importantly, you should always take your willingness to learn with you. Without that essential piece of equipment, the advice of experienced drivers isn't worth a damn.

While i do agree with @treks, the most mandatory requirements would be a shovel, two way radio, tow ropes, shackles and flag , front and rear tow hook points on your vehicle. You can get the air compressor, jacks, at a later date once you a regular to the offorad circuit.

@BENNY THOMAS There is a Newbie Drive posted on Mar 30th led by our Superman @Rahimdad. You can probably check the drive and enroll to have a first taste of the sand. Also, by posting some details of your vehicle you can get a better advice from him on what needs to be done to ensure that you have an enjoyable ride.

My advice, there’s a lot of good advice offered here, heed it. Secondly dont get cocky. Start slow and work your way up. Lastly, it’s ok to get scared. Sometimes it’s better to go around than over but once you face your fears and build your confidence up, you’ll be ready to tackle anything whatever your car can handle.
