  1. AEV JL 2.5 Dualsport RT on an eco diesel

    man you got some weight on that Jeep. I am 6700 so hope it handles the weight fine. How do you feel about the brakes? I feel like they are getting a little overloaded.
  2. AEV JL 2.5 Dualsport RT on an eco diesel

    I am sure there are a number here that have. Mine is sitting in my garage and will be installed next weekend when I get back into town! I will be curious how it handles all of the additional weight I have on the vehicle - gobi rack, tent, swing out bumper, rocksliders etc.
  3. Alcon Big Brake Kit for JL Wrangler Complete!

    Any experience installing these on a diesel with the vacuum booster? I am not digging the vagueness of the stock brakes and given the weight I am carrying need to figure out a solution for a firmer pedal feel and more stopping power.
  4. Diesel Lift Kit?

    get out there and test that setup so you can report back!!! I am interested to know how the springs do! Also curious if anyone has bought the AEV but upgraded the shocks?
  5. Diesel Lift Kit?

    Vendors like to sell what they have. The more use cases for a given set of parts the better. I don’t think all springs are created equally and even though a gas shock may work it will behave differently with more weight on it than intended. Spring rate and load go hand in hand. I could care...
  6. Diesel Lift Kit?

    I have a diesel rubicon as well.
  7. Diesel Lift Kit?

    Well if you are lighter than stock and dont even get the full 2.5" then I am not optimistic about all the weight I am already carrying plus what I plan to add. Bummer...
  8. Diesel Lift Kit?

    Cool, did you have any optional gear (racks, bumpers etc) prior to install?
  9. Diesel Lift Kit?

    Definitely interested in some real world opinions of folks running the AEV kit with heavy loads. As far as heavy loads I mean multi-day overloading trips with full gear (fridge, all the camping stuff, water etc) PLUS a roof top tent, winch, bumpers etc. It ends up being quite a bit of weight...
  10. 3.0 JL Rubicon bumper

    I am emailed rockhard about this and their response was “not a problem”. Seems like we are good to go!
  11. 3.0 JL Rubicon bumper

    Eeesh I ordered some too. Never thought to tell them I had diesel. I doubt Jeep would engineer something that would get in the way of sliders. I have a Rubicon with factory sliders so it has to be possible.
  12. Harbor Freight Badland Apex 12,000# Winch Lower Price

    Stupid question but how did you get the top control box off? I want to take it off to drill and re-route the cable but after undoing the four bolts it still doesn't want to come off. The one end with the connections doesn't release. Do I have to undo the bolts for all the connections to...
  13. 3.0 MODS - Show em off

    Interested in your process here. How are you switching between the tops? I would love to be able to do this to keep the hardtop off all summer. Any and all info appreciated. Thanks!
  14. 3.0 MODS - Show em off

    I did the RAM mount too. I like it for the most part. What is the purpose of the spacers?
  15. 12V Fridge & freezer

    you will need adapters if you dont use jackery inputs. Some panels (RockPals) come with a set of adapters for all sorts of battery setups.
  16. LoD Destroyer Series Sliding Roof Rack

    Couple questions directed to @lodoffroad folks: Curious about the mount into the tail light area - are the preexisting mounting points there or is there drilling required? Is this point as sturdy as mounting down to the frame similar to the Gobi rear mounting point? I currently have my CVT...
  17. Diesel RPM on Highway

    I would assume it was top gear, yes. Everything stock on Diesel Rubicon with factory BFG tires.
  18. NorCal Wheeling, Camping, Recovery

    it looks like tomorrow is going to be hard for me to pull off. Definitely want to get out with you all and do some exploring. I am picking up my CVT in Bend over memorial weekend and will do 4-5 days of camping on the way home so I need to stay close for mother's day weekend.
  19. NorCal Wheeling, Camping, Recovery

    Can you give me any more details on the location? I googled it and it looks like its up in the Arnold area/Foothills. Is that the place?
