  1. Jeep owners.. how do you feel knowing your on top of the food chain?

    Depends on what kind of off-roading you want to do.... and it’s not the vehicle, it’s the driver.
  2. Cheap spacer lift with performance shocks?

    You can get a spacer lift and should work well for what you want to do. Most come with hardware that will allow you to use your stock shocks, so you can decide on upgrading shocks later.
  3. What will I gain? What will I lose? Please help!

    Agree with the above post. Trust us, get the budget boost (spacer lift). I've been driving lifted trucks and Jeeps for 25+ years. At first, I invested in expensive lift kits thinking I would have problems off-road if I didn't do so. I've had a JK for 13 years with a budget boost and 35" tires...
  4. What will I gain? What will I lose? Please help!

    The bigger tires will probably decrease your mpg 10-15% and lose you some power off the line and at highway speeds. But, you’ll get the look you want and the lift/tires will get you better off-road performance. Look into a 2.5” budget boost. It will allow you to clear those tires, cost a...
  5. Jeep Wrangler Rubicon vs. Off-Road Pickups

    The size and solid front axle of the wrangler will be better for the type of off-roading you want to do. I have driven a wrangler, a K5 blazer, a 2-door tahoe (all lifted with 35" tires) and H1 on the same trail and the wrangler was more maneuverable than the other vehicles. I'm not doing a...
  6. New to jeeping: tires, wheels, lifts and tops

    I have had several lifted Jeeps and trucks over the last 25 years with full suspension lifts and one Jeep with a budget boost. My advice for your setup is to go with the budget boost and 35" tires. This should provide all the capability you will need offroad and preserve your factory components...
  7. EV / PHEV JL Wrangler Rubicon will go 0-60 in 6 seconds says Jeep President

    Anyone else notice the president of the Jeep brand just call the wrangler a "car"? What is happening to the world? :(
  8. I was Oblivious To Jeep Wave

    Angry eyes Jeep = No wave from me (but, sometimes I'll show some sympathy and wave anyway) :)
  9. Mudding Harmful to Jeep?

    I've heard of JKs running oversized tires with non-Dana 44 factory axles ruining their differentials by mudding. Anyone have this problem with JLs?
  10. 35" Tire Upgrade

    Going to 35" from stock, your speedometer will now read 5-10% slower than you are actually traveling (Depending on what your stock tire size was). Also, your mpg will drop about the same percent. This is just an estimate, since mpg will also be effected by the weight of the 35" tires you purchased.
  11. Hard top decision

    If you're trying to save on cost, get the soft top. I have both and Iive where it snows. I have used the soft top year-round without a problem while my hardtop is collecting dust.
  12. Looks Like Ford Bronco is Serious About Taking on the Wrangler

    I was hoping the new Bronco would be based on a F150 or F250 single-cab frame with solid axles. Something that would be similar to the 80s and 90s Broncos and full size Blazers. I am not interested in the new Bronco based on the information available so far.
  13. Official announcement for 2020 Jeep Wrangler North Edition

    Am I alone in thinking there are too many of these "special edition" packages? It would be more meaningful if there were fewer special editions and more differences between these models and the regular models.
