Make the rope thinner.
Tapercut one of the strands out, pull it out a few weaves and tug it back in.
Just far enough back to enable you to wriggle it into place.
You really do not need the full strength of the rope at the anchor point anyway.
Very neat indeed.
I was wondering, regarding vented hoods...
Maybe these would fit the Owens-Pro: Venum fiberglass vented hoods for the JL/JT.
(I have no affiliation and no experience with this products)
I think there is plenty of support for the power-top through the sport cage.
I really can not see why there should be a problem with tilting the windscreen.
The front seals by the windscreen is maybe different since it is a whole different construction from the freedom top.
Those different seals...
Edited. Countries! Should have been more clear.
Generally in Europe, you are not allowed to drive a vehicle without proper footwear.
Barefooted or with thin soles it is more difficult to press with enough force to brake efficiently.
Though in today's modern vehicles with brake assist etc. it...
The flip flops are only on the passenger side, correct?
There is a reason why not wearing appropriate footwear when driving is illegal in many countries. Safety!
I have a feeling that many of those hilarious parking lot accidents on YouTube is related to this.
There seems to be a notion that there is limited room to mount a compressor in the engine compartment on the JL.
Rather than mounting it under the seat or in the back, I would really like to see someone finding a way to mount the compressor inside the spare wheel mount on the back of the JL...
Steering wheel (post3 pic3)
Still wondering what should be put in the blank button spot in the steering wheel, by the cruise control.
? Intended for future updates on adaptive cruise control?
? Maybe for a emergency flashing beacon for under the jeep when you roll over and are still holding on...
May be wrong, but I think the Rubycon gets red shock absorbers or King Shocks.
So this is probably not a Ruby.
Maybe someone can ID the Differential housings?
Selectrac or no?
Engine is Pentastar and gearbox is auto.
Look to Jeep.com
New Wrangler / Features / Capability
I have seen someone claim that the (Europe) export version of the Rubicon will have the Selec-trac (gearing unknown).
This is supposed to be to comply with with braking requirements that can not be met with part time 4wd.
I doubt they would sell a Rubicon without lockers.
Just wish the lockers...
Wondering: The empty "button" space next to the cruise control on the steering wheel...
Seems odd to leave that space blank.
Maybe they are for an upcoming function like the adaptive cruise control?
Or underside emergency beacon for when you are flipped upside down and your CB antenna broke?
The design of the snorkel worries me. Attached at the air-box and the cowl only.
I noticed it wobbling on a video from the show. Probably a rushed for the show part.
Will need some kind of support between the door and folding wind screen. Maybe a limp riser?
Are we also talking about power-folding mirrors on the Euro models?
- Or will that just be an aftermarket option?
I did notice that this was not in the North American manual.
Very convenient parking in town and when pushing your way through brush or forrest.
Thanks for all the info you provide guys, really apresiate it.
It would have been nice if they had offered a three speed box.
One speed for the highway, one for sand/dirt/mud and one for crawling.
An option used to be something like an attached crawler like the "Ruby-crawler" (Though that now...
@ Great Grape Abe.
LSD+locker... Are you referring to the EGerodisc variable lockers?
An alternative would be their torsion sensitive Truetrac, with a little help from thee brakes to make them...
Ref. to picture in post 102.
As you can still install Eaton e-lockers in thee Sahara diffs,
maybe we could purchase the switches from them and perhaps even have the computer display your lockers in the dash.
Hope this would be an option.
Would like my "homebuild Ruby" to have full time 4WD...
