  1. How much do your stock 392 wheels weigh?

    What do you lose by going with a forged wheel? I’ll admit, I’ve been thinking of forged wheels as all pros and no cons (except cost). Avoid weight, super strength..what’s not to love?
  2. How much do your stock 392 wheels weigh?

    I think he’s saying the standard rubi wheel is 21 lbs, not the 392 wheel (?)
  3. How much do your stock 392 wheels weigh?

    Per that thread - stock 392 wheel weight is 31 lbs. kinda heavy. I geeked out to get a tire/wheel combo that allow me to run 35's with net zero weight gain (compared to stock). Trying to keep weight low, especially unsprung weight. Toyo AT3 35x11.5 - ten lbs heavier than OEM KO2 Titan7 T-AK1...
  4. Is the two oil pan interchangeable?

    Yeah I’m not thinking about swapping, just opining that the steel is better. My solution will be skids.
  5. MagnaFlow Rock Crawler Catback Exhaust for 392 V8 Jeep [sound clips]

    I agree - sounds less aggressive than stock in this clip. Sounds better in the Marco clip. It’s cool that they built their exhaust to accommodate the Next Venture skids…but that seems kind of oddly committal. Not bashing on Next Venture at all - their kit looks superb, and first adopters seem...
  6. Is the two oil pan interchangeable?

    That’s a pretty significant difference…kinda kills me they didn’t address this til after several months of production. The steel pan seems like it’d be much more resilient. I’m trying to decide if I want steel or aluminum skids for a daily driver / occasional off-road. Thinking aluminum will...
  7. Just look at this R&T article about why the Bronco is a better Wrangler

    But when it comes to being special versus generic, jeep wins. Remember this gem? (Trigger warning for low humor types.)

  9. As a new 392XR owner...

    What’s your take on the XR flares. Honestly I think it’s a damn good idea and not terrible design. what do you make of the shocks? Bilsteins maybe?
  10. Quality Locking Hood Latch

    These look great but are notorious for jamming and failing, assuming the user stories are accurate.
  11. Quality Locking Hood Latch

    Huge fan of the idea being surfaced here - the lack of quality hood locks seems to be a major gap, at least if you’re running the front cam. I emailed one manufacturer recently to say - hey this is underserved and no doubt you guys could make a killer made in USA option. Maybe the market is too...
  12. Anyone else considering trading their 392 for a 392XR?

    good point on legality of beadlocks for hwy use being a murky issue, not clearly legal / illegal. That’s a good insight too - your experience at the dealer with regearing and warranty. I had understood that since Mopar parts catalogue sells gears and kit, your dealer can regear you and keep...
  13. Anyone else considering trading their 392 for a 392XR?

    Imho - - the Mopar spare enforcement on the XR isn’t the carrier you want. Better options out there. No contest. The Mopar carrier does nothing for the hinges, for one. - the XR tires and wheels would not be my pick. Sure They look fine, but quality choices abound. They are heavy. Unless...
  14. 392 Spring Spacer ?'s

    I used the maximus 3 plate and gap fillers, warn Zeon 10 winch, fatty factor 55 fairlead and hook. And the Baja Designs shorty light bar. Measurements before and after showed a quarter inch drop. My shop rightly suggested not worth the trouble to add spacer. But I added the MC spacer anyway...
  15. What would you do?

    I ended up putting a 3.6 back in it and selling it, and eventually got the 392 jeep. Bc I traded my car in too, the 392 is my daily driver. I put the teraflex spare carrier on it, MC front LCA to dial in caster, got my old winch and light mounted, and 35s. I was kinda pleased that my...
  16. How important are heated seats to you?

    Heated seats and steering wheel are essential for top-off and doorless driving for November in Virginia.
  17. Ethanol-Free Gasoline

    I have 20 gallons of non-ethanol and stabilizer that I keep on hand. Should be good for 2 years, and I’ll use and refill. Honestly freaked me out just a little when I couldn’t find gas for several days back several months ago, when some russkies hacked an east coast refinery or whatever it...

    Gray Protector is Front Driver Black Protector is Front Pass The Rear Spring with green tag is driver . Rear Spring with white tag is passenger.
  19. Lets see your 392 on 35's or 37's stock suspension or lifted...

    Stock and 35s toyo at3 - 35 x 11.50 R17 Titan7 T-AK1 This combo is net zero weight gain (compared to OEM) which is kinda cool. Also teraflex spare carrier and hinge, MC front lower control arms to dial in caster. Warn and Baja light. Actually added a .25 MC spacer on top of the coils, to...
