Traded out the factory Rubicon decal for a @pixeldecals uni-color reflective white. Had to get rid of the red trimmed Rubicon decal. As I am a Colorado Buffalo fan, and red capital “N’s” remind me of Nebraska.

Did they say why they recommend toe “out” my understanding is on a RWD vehicle the toe should be “in” just slightly.


Below is an email reply to a question on toe settings, based on my JLR. (Steer Smarts Rubicon tie rod and bottom mount drag link, adjustable track bars and running 35's on stock Rubi wheels with 1.25" spacers) I know of at least a couple of shops who have set up customers JL's with toe-out and they say it has worked out great.

Are those 35s or 37s? How quiet are those? I just got those on my Ram 2500 and really like them. I was thinking that I should have got those for my JL as well after seeing them on yours, I want them even more.

Wife got me a new badge with all this covid stuff going on so I mounted it. I guess this means my jeep isn’t trail rated anymore. But it is covid rated!!!!

always loved the really early (~1970) CJ5 Renegades... decided to try to incorporate a bit of that vibe : KC's, the Pixelhut retro hood tape stripes, even found some old "Dauntless V6" badges... 33's and Rubi suspension are coming shortly, though I'm still torn on wheels : I dig the simple, slightly retro look of the JL Sport's stock black steelies, but Quadratec's "Retro Alloy" wagon wheels (especially in black) are super appealing. That said, that could be bumper/winch money.

Looks awesome! Where did you get the grill and headlight inserts? Thank you.

Scored a sweet deal on these!! Offer too good to pass up, now to install them. They’re going on a Mopar “2in.” Lift, any suggestions or comments on how they ride on & off-road? I got a few upgrades done to the Jeep so far, let me know feedback I’ve heard mixed reviews, thanks!

Huge shoutout to Will C. for letting these go!

I've had these on for about a week and I don't care for them very much. They are overly firm to the point of being harsh. I've tried every setting and settled on soft /cold and the softest setting on the dial. I have a 2 door and the shocks are valved for a 2 door so it may not apply to you . The front shocks are actually pretty good on this setting. The rears are really unpleasant on potholes at most speeds but the Jeep rides well on minor bumps and smooth surfaces.

I just pulled my camper about 500 miles and with the extra weight the Jeep actually rides quite nicely. Guess I need to add some weight to the rear.
