  1. Vermont Rubicon

    So yesterday was kinda a sad day. I sold my 2020 Rubicon with 12000 miles on it. I have never sold a 1 year old vehicle. I almost always keep them to about 80 or 90k miles or 7 or 8 years. The corrosion issue had really gotten under my skin (pun intended). Also Used car prices are thru the...
  2. Vermont Rubicon

    Hi hi. Welcome to VT ? Or just welcome to the area? So I did a lot of the work on my jeep myself but I also really like and trust Brileyas in Rutland. Good small dealership and very friendly staff. Would be happy to connect. Always fun to meet like minded off road people. That said. I...
  3. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Don't really have much to add here other than to reiterate to people this is not a maintenance issue. I have a White 2020 JLUR with 9500 miles on it. Heated Garage, washed once or sometimes twice a week. Ceramic coated first week of ownership. I use a ceramic detailer spray on wax /...
  4. RUBICON Lift Less than 2 inches - options without going spacers ?

    looks good - hahaaaa THEY DONT MAKE IT EASY!!! right ?? Did you get an alignment yet ? wondering if you may need rear LCA's or do you already have them ? from the pics the rear tire looks centered which is not usually the case without rear LCA.
  5. RUBICON Lift Less than 2 inches - options without going spacers ?

    I have the rubber bushings on both the front and back LCAs. As far as i know there is no maintenance but please confirm. They are great. Jeep looks and rides great. Got my caster to right about 6.0 and have not touched them since. Very please with Rustys and the Vertex shocks thou I think...
  6. RUBICON Lift Less than 2 inches - options without going spacers ?

    So all of this took place 6 or 8 months ago but i went back and found my notes. I called about 10 different companies that make lift / springs. Some were a lot more forthcoming about info than others. Also found you often had to call a couple times and even ask the "sales" guy if you can talk...
  7. Looking for opinions on shocks.

    HI There. I don't know your complete set up but i'm happy to give you my feedback and some advice (for what that is worth ;) ) E Rated tires - especially on a 20 inch wheel are going to make for a pretty harsh ride. I run E rated KO2 but on a 17 inch wheel and aired down to the low 30's...
  8. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    I have a 1 year old Rubicon (white) 8000 miles - I have 1 very small bubble - smaller than a pea on the underside of a rear driver side hinge. Bothers me but not that much and i am a car cleaning freak (just ask my wife) Its only on one hinge on the rear door. Hood is clear, front doors are...
  9. RUBICON Lift Less than 2 inches - options without going spacers ?

    i dont seem to have a picture with it flexed but looking at this i have a difficult time imagining the tire and the reservoir coming into contact. my wheels are Icon Rebound with KO2 17x12.5x35 -6 offset. they stick out about 1.5 inches from the wheel well.
  10. RUBICON Lift Less than 2 inches - options without going spacers ?

    I have not had any issues. my first question with that pic is what wheels are those and what is the OFFSET ?
  11. RUBICON Lift Less than 2 inches - options without going spacers ?

    i did not install the LCAs so not sure what length. I'll throw a tape measure on them. Caster is sitting just below 6 maybe 5.8 or so - drives and tracks great..
  12. RUBICON Lift Less than 2 inches - options without going spacers ?

    Never had a leveling problem front to back. Was always level. But always leaned a bit to the passenger side if I had a full tank of gas. Not much but maybe 1/4 inch.
  13. RUBICON Lift Less than 2 inches - options without going spacers ?

    No - rustys kit has new spring pads - front and rear.. worth double checking with them but mine came with!
  14. RUBICON Lift Less than 2 inches - options without going spacers ?

    Don't know why they don't sell them in the package any More but personally I'd just buy the vertex shocks for 1400 then get the Rustys kit with spring, sways , control arms and track bars. All in 2500 .
  15. RUBICON Lift Less than 2 inches - options without going spacers ?

    Well... Couldn't find the softer ones and decided what the heck... Still love them ..
  16. Looking for opinions on shocks.

  17. Looking for opinions on shocks.

    Yes - i am running the 2 - 3 inch lift RC Vertex adjustable shocks with 2 inch springs (from Rustys) and all of Rustys adjustable lower control arms - front and rear as well as track bars. Right now very happy - i wouldn't change a thing!
  18. Looking for opinions on shocks.

    At the risk of drawing out the Rough Country haters I am happy to chime in here. I have the 2.5 inch RC lift with the Vertex Adjustable shocks on my 2020 Rubi. I've had them on for about 4k or 5k miles now. Zero problems. Full disclosure I did swap out the RC springs. Not that I didn't like...
  19. Accidental audio improvement with dash speakers and Alpine system

    Thanks for starting this - RSK, nice job!! One thing i thought i would add to the discussion is OHMS !! Both the 3.5 inch speakers (the dash and the sound bar) are 4 ohm speakers and both the 4 inch speakers (knee panel and sound bar) are 2 ohm. So replacing the 3.5's is easy because MOST...
