Well, worse at this specific issue. Other than that….the Rubi does just about everything else really good, except staying out of the dealer shop lol.I agree.
A stock Rubicon is worse than a Sport or Sahara, and a 2dr is worse then a 4dr, so you have the worst combination.
The factory caster spec is ridiculous. I'm surprised Jeep doesn't get more shit for it, really. They put the same arms on the JLUR (with a 1" lift) as they do a Sport. Simple math says to maintain the same caster you'll need a longer arm... but what does Jeep do? They adjust the spec so they don't have to have different parts.Interesting. What causes this?
We recently drove my wife’s Rubicon with mud tires from Northeast Tennessee to Hilton head Island South Carolina, then down to Lake Okeechobee Florida, then back to Sanford North Carolina, then back to Northeast Tennessee. We loved it, very comfortable and it rode great.So looking to get back into a Jeep but I keep reading how bad they are on the highway as far as moving all over the lane and just overall not being a very comfortable road trip vehicle.
I do take a fair amount of road trips and I thought a jl with the top down would be an awesome place to be. Jeep has all the amenities. Nice seats/heated seats/wheel and so on.
Wanted some real word feedback from owners not magazines. Thanks guys
If the Mopar arms make a difference ill get them. There was one point when I was going downhill it felt like a strong wind (but no wind) had surged against my Jeep and took me into the other lane. Not exaggerating. It was light traffic, but I learned a valuable lesson.The factory caster spec is ridiculous. I'm surprised Jeep doesn't get more shit for it, really.

Great news (fuck), The Warn winch will not fit in the Roam bumper. The Roam bumper mounts the winch real low and I knew that I would have to relocate the control box, but the bumper will not clear the winch. So I had to order a new bumper.So this came in yesterday. I am very impressed with the initial quality of the Factor 55 rope, but for $170 you would think it would come with a storage bag.
I have fixed the grille and did some painting that I have wanted to do for a while. I have wanted to paint the grille insert Red White and Blue. So with it apart, I got it done.
Will be installing this after breakfast today.
Then of course, I need a new windshield as a car kicked up a rock over the weekend and it has split the windshield from top to bottom. Yeah, Jeep maintenance. Luck is on my side though, a good bud of mine owns a vehicle glass replacement company.
