off road

  1. Exhaust options?

    Hey all, I currently have a little slip on high clearance muffler delete on my Jl and I’m loving the tone it gives the Jeep. Though I am having an issue, on road trips when I’m climbing hills the drone sucks. Anyone have any good recommendations on off-road oriented exhausts that will knock down...

  3. What all is needed for a 2.5" lift kit on a 2021 JL Sport S 2-Door?

    Hello all, I'm soon to be getting a 2021 JL Sport S 2-Door and wanted to fit on 35's asap. This is a daily driver, but will see some light offroad a few times a year. Nothing crazy, though. Stock could handle it fine, but I love the look of 35's. I'm not a huge fan of the stock Sport S rims...
  4. Broken underside (steering damper I think) from off-roading, will using a non-dealership mechanic void the warranty

    I took my 8 month year old JL Rubicon on a mud trail and got stuck in a clay pit almost bumper deep on the front end. After the ordeal I ended up looking under my car because I was having steering issues turning left and the wheel is a bit misaligned. I took a look and realized I broke...
  5. Trails in Raleigh Area & Basic Off-road Checklist

    Hi! I’m new to the Jeep world and really want to do some light off-roading in the Raleigh / Durham, NC area. Does anyone have any trail recommendations for a beginner? I’ve never been off-roading, so maybe a bunny slope to start? Somewhere where I can take the top off, put the Jeep into 4L, and...
  6. Broken axles and stuck Jeeps

    Fun day in the trail with friends; stuck jeeps and broken ram axles. Pretty good time
  7. Why Are Lightweight Vehicles Better Off-Road Than Heavier Vehicles, Or Are They?

    Lately, I've been reading up on off-roading. There seems to be two things that directly affect off-road performance and those are traction and flotation. As a heavier load pushes the tire down more and a wider tire disperses the lbs/inch² these two, traction and flotation, seem to be opposites...
  8. Water Fording In Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 2 Door

    Good morning, I'm thinking about getting a new off road 4x4 for off roading. The place where I'll be going has a lot of water crossings so I've been looking at the water fording capabilities of the 4x4s. Land Rover has a very detailed water fording section that provides the exact water fording...

  12. 2020 Uconnect 8.4 Navigation off road question

    Is the map overlay stored in the system, or does it download like Google Maps? If using Google Maps, and I get out of cell service, then the map won't load even though I still have GPS signal. (Yes, I can pre-download the Google maps IF I know where I am going, but often we are just taking dirt...

    Doing a family trip down to Knoxville next month and I am heading down early to do a weekend at Windrock.

    Hello Last weekend we did the rubicon trail with a group of buddies. I decided to try the soup bowl on my new 2019 JL Rubicon and did great! Currently have 3.5” game changer metal cloak lift kit with 37” nitto mt tires (they love 8psi on the rocks! Looking forward to another trip soon! Video...
  15. Hi-Lift vs Bottle Jack off-road?

    I'm trying to decide between getting a Hi-Lift jack versus a bottle jack for off-road use. Mostly easy to moderate trails with some rocks along the way, no real rock crawling. Most of our off-roading is done solo (2-people +dogs). Occasional snowy trails in winter. I've heard lots of horror...

  18. Easy Sunday Wheeling

    So I spent a few hours Sunday doing some easy wheeling in the JL, enjoying a very unusual 57 degrees with almost no wind in Kansas. No crazy obstacles, just a nice quick jaunt through the area with some scenic views and different perspectives of the Jeep.
