  1. JLU sport, MC 2.5”, 37” tires

    Tire weight mainly taxes your load-bearing components. Ball joints, unit bearings, rear axle flanges. Tire diameter and grip is what taxes the spinny stuff on the inside. The larger the diameter of the tire, the more leverage it can exert on your drivetrain. Larger diameter tires also have a...
  2. Ready or not... 2020 High Altitude JL / JLU build & price is here

    There are people who say that about all 4 door models. That a real Jeep is 2 door and 4 doors ruined the brand. But the 4 doors sell like hot cakes, and because of economies of scale, that brings the price down on all Jeeps including the 2 door. Anything they can do to increase wrangler...
  3. FCA just cancelled my warranty because of "aftermarket stuff"

    Hopefully the sensors work out for you. RCVs are one option if you want to go all out, but I gave you a Yukon part number in an earlier post that just replaces the FAD shafts with a 1 piece unit. You can re-use your stock stub shaft and joint (or replace the joint for $50 extra if you want)...
  4. Ready or not... 2020 High Altitude JL / JLU build & price is here

    Well call me a hater of haters I suppose. People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. There's a lot of junk on this forum and I think a lot of people should be more careful before casting shade on angry grills or 20s since their stuff is just as bad or worse. Where are the hardcore jeepers?
  5. FCA just cancelled my warranty because of "aftermarket stuff"

    I would guarantee it, see my first reply to this thread. Everything is fully mechanical besides the FAD. And since your 4wd works when everything is cold for some reason, we know it's not a driveshaft or axle shaft that is broken. It is just the FAD refusing to lock the shafts together for...
  6. Ready or not... 2020 High Altitude JL / JLU build & price is here

    F' the haters man I would rather drive a high altitude than 90% of the jeeps on this forum with a bunch of shitty bolt-ons and fake beadlocks.
  7. FCA just cancelled my warranty because of "aftermarket stuff"

    Problem is the shaft speed sensor would have to be integrated into the FAD actuator because there are no other wires going into or out of that area for a discrete sensor. And those things are pretty expensive. Personally this sounds like a potential money pit where you replace both wheel speed...
  8. Evo Oil Pan Skid Plate

    Nope you won't know it's there unless you bottom out your suspension, usually going fast off-road and hitting a dip or berm. A stock rubi with 1" bump stop will have pretty much the same suspension travel (both up and down) as a sport/sahara.
  9. Evo Oil Pan Skid Plate

    Front upper control arm/front driveshaft will contact the skid plate supports that come down off the motor mounts at full compression. I would imagine that most skid plates will have this problem. But maybe EVO is the only one that actually cycles the suspension to check clearance.
  10. FCA just cancelled my warranty because of "aftermarket stuff"

    @Stormin’ Moorman what do you mean "won't engage 4x4"? It's a fully mechanical system (except for one thing) so there is no way the Jeep can stop you from using 4wd. That "one thing" is the FAD. So just ditch that piece of crap, buy a 1 piece inner shaft (YA W38841) and disable all FAD...
  11. Seeking up travel, thoughts on Bilstein 7100s?

    You can't. Track bar and drag link will hit the frame in the front, and track bar will hit the tub in the rear.
  12. Sahara w/ MOAB wheels questions

    They will rub the control arms at full steering lock and they will rub the fenders under moderate compression (off-road use). Using wheel spacers will prevent the rubbing at steering lock, but will significantly exacerbate the fender rubbing under compression. A lift does not prevent tires...
  13. Seeking up travel, thoughts on Bilstein 7100s?

    Ah ok. I just looked them up, are you looking at the 12" shorty? That's a pretty cool shock actually. But yea the issue is finding someone who is familiar with valving them. Also did you measure how much droop you can get without the springs losing preload? You might not be able to run a...
  14. Seeking up travel, thoughts on Bilstein 7100s?

    Ok, so stock bump stops then. King 2.0x10" will fit in there if you order them with a welded loop rod end for the front. King 2.5x10" will fit if you order them with over-cylinder top caps (both front and rear), and a welded loop rod end for the front. Fox 2.0 shocks for 0-1.5" lift will...
  15. Front axle gear ratio

    No the chain only ties the front and rear together. The 4:1 comes from the planetary on the input. The front is high pinion with reverse cut gears and a 210mm ring gear diameter. The rear is low pinion with standard cut gears and a 220mm ring gear diameter.
  16. Seeking up travel, thoughts on Bilstein 7100s?

    What are you trying to accomplish?
  17. Largest tires I can put on my stock rubicon wheels.

    Stock wheels are actually the only way 35s will work, without adding bump stops. Aftermarket wheels have less backspacing and will push the tire too far out, you will hit the outer edge of your fender under compression. Same with spacers. You can run a 35x12.50 on a 7.5 wheel no problem...
  18. JL Sport- Things to Consider When Buying/Building

    For sure it's a much easier pill to swallow to pay an extra $100 per month for 5 years on a loan than it is to dump $6k on axles out of pocket. Plus the warranty is important to a lot of people. Yea I've installed a couple of switch banks already. When I first read the instructions and it...
  19. JL Sport- Things to Consider When Buying/Building

    Nice informative post, here are my thoughts about some of your points. I pull the fuse box and battery tray to install the aux switches. Trying to run the wiring through the fender well sounds like a terrible idea and could lead to damaging the stock harness that’s already running thru...
  20. Tips for Offroad Beginners

    Hungry Valley SVRA has a 4x4 obstacle course with a ton of different stuff. Usually a lot of people there on the weekends if you need a hand with anything. Should be back open by the time you get your jeep. Lockwood/Miller Jeep trail is close by there and has a good mix of everything and...
