A little delayed posting here....just some cosmetic stuff for now, but a new heat-expulsion hood is at the body shop being painted. I hope to have it installed at the end of the week!
ACE rock sliders, 2.5" lift, 35s and bumpers are next on the list.....
Just barging in here to say, "Hi!" --and wondering if anyone would be open to hitting Uwharrie on 8/7 and playing guide.
Completely stock JLURD right now, but have wheeled extensively at Rausch Creek, so I have recovery gear and GMRS.
Thank you in advance for any info!
I guess I'm the guinea pig on this. I wanted the Artec system, but got tired of waiting for their diesel-specific skids.
I snagged Next Venture's aluminum diesel skid system and rear diff skid during their July 4th sale and will update this thread once everything's installed--which will be...
Hi NC Folks!
I'll be in the Durham area for a client visit and thought I would do some wheeling at Uwharrie on Saturday 8/7.
I was wondering if anyone would be open to running with a stock (for now) JLURD and playing guide.
Thank you in advance!
I'm using my JLURD as a utility vehicle: daily driver, cargo carrier when needed and occasional offroading. Love the torque and gas mileage over my JKUR.
Don't hesitate to use your JL as a daily driver!
I can't speak to other metal tailgate tables, but the Trailgater by Outback Adventures doesn't rattle.
I had a 2013 JKUR that I wheeled extensively (Rausch Creek, Windrock) with a JK Trailgater--totally silent. I now have a JLURD with the new JL Trailgater and it's silent as well.
I assume you're wheeling at Rausch and AOAA. (I used to live in S Central PA.)
Unfortunately, can't help with the 37s or lift, but here's a question for you: Wouldn't debris from the trails potentially mess up the slots/drilled holes on the rotors and decrease the brake effectiveness?
You have the option of doing a factory order and having Jeep drop-ship your new rig to them in Wixom, MI for the conversion--you'd need to order through an AEV dealer--or bring your Jeep to them. AEV can do conversions on the 2-door or 4-door platform.
Hope this helps!
