  1. Swapping Rubicon T-case vs. re-gearing Sport axles

    For my needs it seems that going w/ the 4:1 T-case would be a good move. I essentially get "almost" as good a crawl ratio w/ the Rubi w/4.10 gears. I wouldn't have to pay to get regeared so I could DIY the T-case install as I'm nervous about DIY'ing the ring & pinions. And it would essentially...
  2. Slight coolant smell, no trace of a leak anywhere that I can find.

    When rock wheeling a few months ago had a slam on a rock and got hung up a bit, went out to check where to try again and noticed a coolant smell. Never found any obvious leak and didn't really notice much difference in the coolant tank level. Still notice a very faint coolant smell when the...
  3. Mastertop Tonneau Cover & Windjammer

    Installed the Mastertop Tonneau cover & WIndjammer combo. https://www.quadratec.com/p/mastert.../msp-wind-tonneau-combo-jl-2-dr-hardtop-twill Thanks to @Billkowski for the info and the Twill choice, it is a nice cloth for sure. Pretty easy install, that final stretch to get the opposite side...
  4. The Lowly 2 door Sport Club!

    This thread is for the lowest hanging fruit on the Jeep Club tree :) We don't have the high dollar shoes, the name brand jeans or sit in the VIP section. We're in the back of the line, we have to wait a bit longer but damn-it, we're still getting into the club! We get to start with the...
  5. Hockey Puck Bump Stop Install (Front)

    Lots of folks suggest using hockey pucks for bump stops. Never found a thread on the site w/ the details, it's simple enough but thought it may help those that haven't done this or considered pucks for bump stops. Thanks to @Roky for suggesting bolting them on, there's others that have used...
  6. Just got the Rough Country 9" LED headlight set

    Had the halogens, went to an ebay multi LED set which had a horrible cloud-like cutoff, very poor illumination width, and overall poor lighting quality. I then went with a low lumen projector-type LED set w/ a decent cutoff but light output was poor as was the width of illumination, and the DRL...

  8. Hooking up a front camera to run on a tablet while on the trail??

    I'm sure it's been done, and probably some huge thread on the site already exists, but haven't had luck w/ a search, even on google. I have the 7" Uconnect and I've heard there's no way to run another camera along w/ the reverse camera, only the 8.4 has this option via a Tazer. I was wondering...

  10. Making Mopar plastic steps a bit more trail worthy

    Wife wanted her old plastic Mopar steps back so I did my best to make them a bit more "rock resistant", took a couple 5 ft strips of 1/8" x8" wide to the machine shop to have them bent on the brake, welded up a couple bracket protectors and that's it. I know this is no substitute for rock rails...

  12. How much jounce bumper left at full stuff?

    Just curious how much teh stock jounce bumper is left above the metal cup mount at full stuff? Looks like my new Fox shocks have enough travel to get me to about a 1/2" above the cup, does that sound about right?? TIA

    Got a couple other members interested in joining up. Going to be in Las Vegas from Sunday afternoon thru Friday morning (Nov 22nd thru 26th).

  18. 2dr V6 DIY skid plate set.

  19. And Todays Moron Design Award goes to.....................................

    Smittybilt! For their brainless mount on their fender liners :headbang: :no::angry::facepalm: Dipshits have entire fender mounted on the upper body except for 2 screws mounted to the frame. The nice thick rubber body mounts have some flex you idiots, and guess what, that entire mount on both...
  20. Can you sign in while on the trail or does it have to be at the trailhead?

    On our upcoming Colorado BOH trip I was planning to run Engineer pass from the Engineer Pass connector up to the summit, this wouldn't be the official start or end of the trail so was wondering if I log in to the BOH app will I be able to collect the BOH for Engineer Pass?
