  1. Mopar 2 inch lift kit. Any extra components that I need beside the lift kit??

    For Mopar, got to get the correct kit for your rig. I did it in stages to save cost. First I got a 2” Mopar lift model specific to my 2 dr JL Rubicon for 2.0L. It provides exactly 2" of lift on my Rubicon, so I'll bet it will provide the lift it is supposed to for your Jeep as long as you get...
  2. Stock 2020 Rubicon Unlimited, going 35”, but need some advice (I’ve searched)

    OK - thanks. I see I could run those 2 ply Ford tires on my stock 7.5" wheels if I want (which I kept), but 6 ply C rated is what I got which is to 8" min wheel width. In case of tire failure and any legal matters for BFG, should make sure specs match. Also, the 8" and 12 backspacing of the...
  3. Stock 2020 Rubicon Unlimited, going 35”, but need some advice (I’ve searched)

    Max is 45PSI so I am still running 37PSI on the street.
  4. Stock 2020 Rubicon Unlimited, going 35”, but need some advice (I’ve searched)

    Yeah - MOPAR 2" for 2dr 2L I like due to Fox shocks which seem to work better with these tires, they are heavy duty just as the Fox damper is.
  5. Stock 2020 Rubicon Unlimited, going 35”, but need some advice (I’ve searched)

    Just installed 5 x BFG 315/70 C rated 6 ply on Mopar 8" x 17" bead lock capable wheels. I like the tires since they were supplied on a Raptor (33" 285/70R 17 in 2010) where they were really smooth on the road but also pretty good on the trail. The 33" BFG's that were supplied with the stock...
  6. Jeep Wrangler Rubicon vs. Off-Road Pickups

    I owned a 2010 Ford F150 Raptor and now a 2-door JL and can provide some background. I loved the Raptor for street driving due to the cushy Fox shocks and the longer wheelbase and throaty V8 as compared with the JL (except when hanging a U turn which is a smoother single operation in the 2...
  7. best oil filter for 2.0 turbo?

    I use K&N for all filtration on my JL (engine oil, air, and cabin air filters). Their oil filter for the 2.0L is both externally made to be physically strong and also is internally well made. The oil I now use is Redline Professional Full Synthetic 5W-30 . I've been using their highest grade...
  8. Giveaway of the Month - October 2019 - Chromoly Dog-Legged Tie Rod, JL Wrangler, Rubicon

    I installed this excellent Tie Rod, along with the Metalcloak HD Drag Link, track bars, and a set of control arms; see pix below. We used the gold metal treatment when I was in the Naval Air so I am familiar with its anti-corrosive properties. The dog-legged tie rod and HD link were a breeze to...
  9. Giveaway of the Month - October 2019 - Chromoly Dog-Legged Tie Rod, JL Wrangler, Rubicon

    Need to relocate the damper among other things under there, but have some Metalcloak bling under the rear pumpkin.
  10. Skid plates 2 door only

    For my 2 door 2.0L, I installed a fairly low budget arrangement, still using the stock fuel tank and battery skids, but eliminating 1) the stock transmission skid and 2) stock transfer case skid, replacing them with the DV8 2 door JL belly pan skid ($389). The DV8 fits well and strengthens the...

    '67 Mustang, 371ci World Alum block, Holly double, Jerico 4sp, Tilton 5" carbon clutch, 9" Currie rear. Now working on interior/electrical..
  12. Had my steering damper replaced today.

    Same here; installed the Fox Adjustable Damper and find on the 2dr Rubicon with 2 inch Mopar Lift including Fox shocks, the setting of between 4 or 5 (default, good setting for most driving) and 14 clicks in from full out (best for mostly freeway driving or driving over bumps at speed); seems...
  13. 2020 Diesel JL Wrangler officially announced, with 260hp / 442lb-ft and new 8 speed

    Follows 80/20 rule. 2drs sell 20% of the market which should be worth it in terms of ROI in our opinion.
  14. Which Muffler?

    Got the Magnaflow (made in SoCal) on order for the 2.0L #19438 Stainless Catback which is a free-flow design including a resonator and dual-exit muffler, which others I know are happy with. Fairly quiet for street use. Similar to the Magnaflow axle-back versions but comes with the said...
