Very nice. Kids will love it as it develops into the overlander that it needs to be for your family lifestyle. One question, you mentioned that you had a raptor. May I ask what made you decide to switch from that to the Rubicon?
I am 6'4" with long legs and spoiled with my BMW M5 seats that have contour support and the leg extension. I searched for seat replacements with that type of contour support was only able to find seats from carid website.
although, the seats are super expensive, this is what I think I am...
Looks great! The clearance on this thing is awesome. I assume you do a lot of rock crawling.
How does the 4.5" lift holds on freeway MPG? and does it require frequent alignment or servicing suspension? just trying to get a sense of how practical is this lift for daily driving and in frequent...
While I have a lot of respect for the Rubicon off-road capabilities, as previous owner of LX and land cruisers, I can tell you Jeep's reliability can be questionable when you put it up against Toyota made vehicles. Just curious how many out there with JKs have had engine or transmission issues...
Thanks a bunch. This is a great way to try it before you buy it. If I happen to pass by I will check them out. Please share pictures of your JL when you have it installed on it. That will make two of us soon :)
Just thought I would share this video I found on YouTube of a serious overlanding Jeep with Ursaminor pop-up camper and few other items. The Jeep has AEV Bumpers, wheels and 2.5 lift with 35's I think, and the owner mentioned that his MPG is still between 14-16 even with all that weight.
Thanks for sharing your experience. This is very helpful. Follow-up questions if I may:
- How did it affect your MPG?
- Do you have a lift on your jeep?
- Is the area spacious enough for two adults?
- Do you have any load on top of the camper? rack or solar panels?
also do you mind sharing...
Thanks for looking into this. I am sure folks here will find your chart handy. Personally, I am planning on putting the factory Mopar bead wheels and lift with KO2 37s and my garage height will still be ok even with 10-15inch pop-up camper additional height.
