In short, yes, you can off-road your 2WD rig. Technically you could off-road any rig if you aren't worried about the safety of your rig or yourself.

How to Safely Off-Road your 2WD
So you have a 2WD and you're itching to off-road, how can you do that safely? Well, it is just like anything in this world, you need the right equipment. For example, a firefighter wouldn't run into a fire without their proper equipment; and we don't want you driving into a mud hole, over hills, or on trails without the correct equipment. First, you're going to need some tough suspension, we recommend the SUPERLIFT with the sweet spot being around a 3-inch lift for offroading depending on what kind of off-roading you're looking to do.
Then you'll need a good wheel and tire package. For wheels, you'll need something tough enough to withstand the beating from your adventures. We recommend the Anthem Off-Road Intimidators for this purpose. As for tires, you'll need a good off-road tire, that can get you through anything that you get yourself into. We highly recommend the Nitto Ridge Grappler for your 2WD off-roading rig. Finally, you will want some other off-road accessories for a safe ride, a winch, rear, and front bumpers, and proper lighting to get you ready.
