Bare bones Sport besides AC, LSD, floor mats, tinted rear windows, and Sirius XM. Wanted a 2 door manual / something light and simple. I have to point to my kids the window crank and manual locks. Dana 30 has been a blessing to temper my mods.
No regrets but in hindsight, would have paid FCA...
I’m kicking myself for ever leaving San Diego and say go for it.
I run doorless and windowless for as long as I can until it gets too cold in northern Virginia. No problem with moisture despite getting caught in heavy rainstorms.
Compensate with a manual transmission, Jpeggz mirrors...
Besides inflation, I think palladium also popped after diesel-gate. Less demand for platinum which makes diesel cats and higher demand for palladium (gas cats).
I’m going catless when they steal mine and will post on butt dyno and decibel levels. Hoping the tazer defeats those codes.
Did a handful of Moab rock crawling trails back in November. Kept up with my friends’ JK Rubis wearing 37s and a new acquaintance with a pretty much stock JL Rubi.
No problems with the limited slip. However, there were obstacles where I wished I had their bigger tires and front locker.
Here‘s a good transfer / manny tranny fluid diy thread. Outside of redline / amsoil nectar, looks like any ATF+4 will do.
