There’s no point in buying a a Rubicon if you plan to add a LSD. Them lockers is what turns a Wrangler into a Rubicon.Can you add LSD or AWD or positrac lol to Rubicon or something similar? I’ve no idea but it might let one sleep better if they knew for a couple grand they could later add a reliable one of these.
Could always install an Auburn ECTED. It’s both a locker and LSD when unlocked.Can you add LSD or AWD or positrac lol to Rubicon or something similar? I’ve no idea but it might let one sleep better if they knew for a couple grand they could later add a reliable one of these.
I think this nails it nicely. If your on the road 90% of the time, go with the Sahara Select-Trac.I still want a SelecTrac Rubi, but between the two it’s easier to make a SlecTrac Sahara more Rubi-like than a Rubicon more SelecTrac-like.
I have owned four Rubicons and five Saharas over the years. In my personal experience, a Rubicon will drive less predictably than a Sahara the moment anything cold starts to fall from the sky.I admitted that I have only read the first two pages of this thread. With that said, I live in MIchigan. Our roads are shit, we get a lot of snow and they do not typically plow until it stops snowing. With that said. I think that the traction control on 99% of the vehicles are so good now a days that you only really need 4wd when the snow is deeper that what can be driven by a "normal" car. I know that with my JLUR on snow, it will not spin out in 2wd unless you turn off the traction control or drive like a complete idiot. If you drive like an idiot, well then no matter what 4wd system you use, you will still be an idiot.
So if you are going to buy based on you get some snow, I don't think it really matters...... I would buy exactly what ever I wanted and then sit back and drink some coffee and gaze at my dream Jeep sitting in the drive no matter what one it is.
I agree about not having to use 4x4 much in winter in the Chicago area or in areas where streets get plowed often.Or you can buy a tj rubicon and get lsd and lockers! But you’ll need your own front disco honestly I don’t even pull the 4wd lever on mine unless I’m about a half foot deep in snow. rear lsd d44 is fantastic
Agreed. We have a ‘mall crawler’ Sahara, which is really funny cause the nearest mall is about 650 km away, unless you count Walmart.....we also don’t have selec trac, we have command-trac. Where we live (about 600 miles north west of where the titanic sank), we have 3 sayings:precisely.
false sense of security.... "I have full time AWD, so I can just drive as I normally do through inclement weather"
