Bring your rig on down at the end of July and play with it at Evans Creek. You'll find that driving fast on those trails will break your stuff pretty quick. We can have a good ol' tortoise and the hare race, lol.
You see, as much as my new heep might disappoint you, I will be able to drive it home, I won't have to trailer it, I use it as a daily driver too.

You guys all flipped out when I bought the Toy
The only guys I see flipping out here are you and Ken, take a breather, guys!
Seriously, you don't know the specs of YOUR own vehicle? lol
I'll take a stab. Looks like 2-3" of lift and 33s, I see aftermarket arms, but looks like stock geometry.
From the video, I'm guessing stock gearing.
Posted 06 June 2013 - 01:01 PM
Specs, stock Rubicon arms. Has sway disconnects, Flexy springs. Nothing more.
A breather, no problem. I take a lot of breathers from the drama here all the time.

Not only do you seem to care what I drive, you seem to worry that I don't care what you think enough to call me a outside of my name. ??
Stock works for me just fine. I wheeled all the trails around here in my Toy for lotsa years completely open with stock gears. I have absolute faith in myself that this new ride will make my job a lot easier. Ken this last time out, "Hey man, don't forget my truck's got a carb and isn't an automatic." Me,"Dude, I'm in 2nd, sorry it's taking so long to get up these hills." lol

Stock Rubicon arms have a heim joint on the track bar?
stock Rubicon arms
Yea, I care what other people drive. That's why I spend so much time on this and other discussion forums. It's why I work in auto parts. I'm obsessed with cars, especially when people use them to their limit and/or modify them for their own use.
A Jeep isn't for me, but I absolutely respect their capability, especially for the price! The offroad club that I'm active with is dominated by Jeeps, 2 Rubicons right now. They are the only way to go for sheer bang for the buck, and anyone who says otherwise doesn't know what they're talking about. I've driven a couple long-armed TJs, and I can't believe how capable they are! I've said for years, if I were to get a Jeep, that's what it would be.

I like it.
They claim 4.11 axles, and 4 to 1 in the transfer case for the Rubicons.
I figure if I break it, I'll get to learn all about it. lol
And for the record, if I ever say "Brian" in a thread, I ain't talking to you, cuz you'll always be Brain to me.

Yep. It's a done deal, I;m moving away from wheeling a Toyota. I've had my little truck for 10.5 years, it's a baddass soldier, always been good to me, taken me some CRAZY impossible places, but has no back seat. Well, I have two kids now that wanna come along too.
So now they can.
very nice. I'd like to have a couple more seats as well....
Posted 08 July 2013 - 11:31 AM
Again, apologies to Ken for going so slow thru all the rough parts.
Posted 10 July 2013 - 06:18 AM
How do you and me have so much in common? I mean, how do you keep getting cool cars before I do? lol
Gonna try it out at Evans Creek tomorrow, pics to follow.
well my Jeep was bought in a dire emergency. I drove in with a Forester with a blown HG and left with a new Jeep while being 500 miles from home and no easy way to get home (it is a long story that really doesn't need to be told here)

I would personally stay away from Shittybuilt products.
They are not all they are cracked up to be......
Posted 01 August 2013 - 12:44 PM
I grabbed a different one by a different company. With any luck it will get here tomorrow and you can see it in person. TJMUSA.com

I get my heep back today! When I bought it, I knew it would have issues with the drivetrain sooner or later. Either it would already have them, or I would cause them. I purchased a warrantee to cover the entire drivetrain. Got to use it to the tune of 3300 bucks in repairs. hehe. Including a complete rear axle, side to side because the old one had a crack in the housing. Now I have a Dana 44 with a locker in it to sell on craigslist. whoohoo.
New U joints throughout.

My rear bumper was missing when I bought the heep. The frame behind it was good and bent, torn a little even. So my buddy welded it up, then we just up and welded this bumper to the frame as well as using the bolts it came with. IT AIN'T COMING OFF! Notice the class 3 receiver, am really stoked about that. The whole reason for selling my precious Toyota was to have a back seat for my kids. Well there's no room for stuff and kids. Crap. So I snatched a basket from Harbor Freight that I can stick into the receiver to carry all the stuff that don't fit in the heep. whoohoo!
As seen with my buddy's new Rubicon. He traded in his plain old 09 after I bought mine. lol

My reserved parking spot at my buddy's house.

Had Tinkham to myself, no sign of tracks heading up other than mine for at least a day. I am so amazed at this heep's snow capability. These tires just slay it. If you've never been up Tinkham, it's a pretty constant climb with a couple of pretty steep stretches. I pulled over to let the boys play when it was about 3 feet on the side of the trail.
