  10. 4L Question

  11. Alloy vs. Steel bumpers

    Just want to say regarding weight... I replaced my stock plastic JLU bumper with a Rugged Ridge HD full width steel bumper. The factory 'plastic' bumper was 33lbs, and the RR weighed exactly 60lbs Not much of a difference... Just drive with a 1/4 tank less gas to make up the difference :CWL:
  12. Rugged Ridge Front & Rear Full Width HD Bumper Install W/ Smittybilt X20 Gen Comp

    Rear bumper out for delivery... I'm excited... but having to lose like 1/2 of my condo living room for the next week or so is tough :CWL: It shows an estimated weight of 40lbs... That would be nice but I'll weigh it once it arrives :rock:
  13. Hood locks

    BOLT- first addition I did to my Jeep just after I bought it. Read countless stories and reviews around the web about locking latches being pried open... Plus - it was a fun first mod to perform to get the hang of the types of clips the Wrangler uses for keeping things attached like the grille...

    Alright. I drove 100km today to get to another mountain road that was too steep with too much snow just to verify and you, and anyone else who mentioned that is correct.

  16. 4L Question

    Thanks everyone - always good to get different view points. Ultimately I'm glad you can't do any damage to the gears etc when in 4L if your tires cannot rotate and you have the gas down!
  17. Rugged Ridge Front & Rear Full Width HD Bumper Install W/ Smittybilt X20 Gen Comp

    I know right? Getting the weight of parts - no matter what it is - seems to usually be omitted from product pages which is frustrating when you actually care about it :CWL:
  18. 4L Question

    I'm so glad you said that LOL 1. I thought I was grinding something to death lol 2. I had to retreat - then went back up in 4H and with momentum I was able to get 10 feet farther lol but it was a good learning experience for me :)
  19. 4L Question

    Here's a newbie question: If You're in 4L and you're going up a hill - and it is covered in 12" of snow - and the hill starts getting steeper and steeper - so the Jeep is going slower and slower - and then it keeps getting steeper (Now it's at about 20% grade for the last kick)--> Is there a...
