  1. Question About Using Air Lift Helper Bags Off Road...

    Hey all, Looking for some advice here. I swapped Rubicon takeoff springs (60/61, 90/91) into my JL Sport. My son and I took it out to Rausch Creek for the 101 Course and followed our guide on a bunch of green trails with no issues at all. At some point, I'd like to go back with my wife and...
  2. How do different colors hold up to the abuse of branches running along side of the Jeep?

    I'd have to say Billet Silver is one of the best at hiding scratches and such. My son drives a silver '03 KJ that my wife bought new in September of '02. While it hasn't been offroaded, it's been daily driven and never garaged in 18 years. Silver has held up really well to parking lot battle...
  3. 2 Door JL Sport ONLY - Let's see them!

    Nice! I was there the same day for the 101 course with them, I think we drove right past you when we were following our guide!
  4. 2 Door JL Sport ONLY - Let's see them!

    Looks awesome! Were you at Rausch Creek a few weeks back? Your rig looks awfully familiar...
  5. 4 door rubicon take offs on 2 door?

    I have the same springs (fronts were PN's ending in 60/61 and rears in 90/91) in my 2-door Sport. With the Rubicon 285/70s and Rubicon springs/shocks I feel like my Jeep rides better now than it did stock. I know some disagree, but ride is a subjective thing I guess. There's road construction...
  6. Book of Dealership Horror stories

    Yeah, there's no excuse at a dealership for that - it's literally in the box with the new filter. My son wanted to do the oil change on my wife's JLU yesterday. He crawls under and fights with the drain plug for a couple of minutes and then says, "Dad, this thing won't come off." I crawl under...
  7. What's a reasonable price for new Rubicon wheel/tire take offs?

    Definitely check Craiglist and FB Marketplace in your area to see what kind of deals there are. I paid $1300 for a low-mileage Rubi takeoff set with white-letter BFGs. My local market is all over the place; prices vary anywhere from ~$1K from a motivated seller to ~$2K from someone who thinks...
  8. Alternative to Removing Euro Bumper Cover Pieces

    Totally agree! I wound up pulling out those little nutserts in the bumper and reattaching my trimmed covers with some trim panel push pins I had from an old project car.
  9. Spacer lift or Rubi takeoffs?

    5 hours is high - my son and I did it in 4 hours, with jackstands in my driveway. A proper lift would have made things much easier.
  10. Jeepaholics Anonymous Thread (we can beat this together, man)

    I'm in the same boat - took my first trip last weekend to Rausch Creek and I'm hooked! I know I won't go crazy with mods because it's my daily driver, but I still look constantly at all of the things I'd love to get for my Jeep.
  11. BFG Ko2's suck that bad in rain?

    I have 285/70 KO2s on my 2-door and find them to be just fine in the rain. When was the last time MD saw any rain? Jersey has been dry for a while, so I know it could be slick out there now. If it's been very dry for a while, the road will have lots of oil and other stuff on the surface, that...
  12. Price range of lift for Sport S

    My JL wound up 2.5" taller than stock when I swapped in the Rubicon suspension and 33's. I did the install with my son and total cost was under $1400 for all parts (wheels/tires/springs/shocks). You could get Rubicon flares and run 35's, but I have no idea what that size will feel like with...
  13. Stock tire pressure after TSB fix for steering

    I noticed better mileage when I first put them on and they were aired up around 37. It's started to get colder overnight, so the pressure dropped a bit, and then I went wheeling this weekend so we had aired down to 15 psi. I got them back up to around 32-33 and the computer still is indicating...
  14. 101 Course at Rausch Creek 11/7/20

    Some of the brush comes in ~a little~ close, but I did not notice any major scratches on the exterior after the trip. My son reached out the window in a few places just to push some branches out of the way. I did not catch anything on the bottom, but I have a 2-door Sport with Rubicon springs...
  15. Stock tire pressure after TSB fix for steering

    Out of curiosity, is that cold or after riding for a few miles and getting some heat in them? Stock BFG KO2s?
  16. 101 Course at Rausch Creek 11/7/20

    I took the 101 with my son on 10/3 at Rausch Creek. It was excellent! First time offroader here, and I was really impressed with Kyle's explanation of different concepts like airing down, and teaching about swaybar disconnects, hill descent, BLD, lockers, etc. It definitely helped to boost my...
  17. Spacer lift or Rubi takeoffs?

    OK, gonna quote myself here because the moment of truth passed this weekend. I have to say, I'm ~really~ impressed with this little Jeep now! We drove it 160 miles one way (2.5 hours or so) with road speeds up to 75 mph on I78 in PA, rode around on a bunch of green trails at Rausch Creek in 4Lo...
  18. How are those 18’s early 19’s holding up?

    Just turned 8K miles on my '18 Sport. Left my house at 5:30 Saturday morning and drove 160 miles to PA to do some trails at Rausch Creek. We then spent about 5 hours riding the trails in 4Low, up and down steep hills, through some mud and decent puddles, and had an absolute blast. We left around...
  19. Spacer lift or Rubi takeoffs?

    Back in July my son and I did the exact swap you're talking about; springs/shocks from a loaded JLUR into my 2-door base Sport. The springs/shocks along with Rubi takeoff wheel/tire package put my Jeep about 2.5" taller than stock. I've put about 1K miles on mine since then, mostly local-road...
  20. Trimming the bumper underside

    Just snapped a couple of pics for you. Hope it helps!
