Standard or optional skid plate. Doesn't need to be included with the bumper just be available and work.
I was all set on the Rival aluminum one and then got a little skeeved out by them being Russian. Not sure if it matters or not but it was exactly what I wanted. Back to the drawing board...
This is smelling like FCA answer to death wobble. They probably know exactly what it is, and it's rare enough and only on Rubicons they can kick it around another few years.
Interesting to hear if anyone with after market e-lockers experiences the same thing.
I should go get some more measurements but I was +4" or so with the 2.5" kit. Reason being it needs to actually be 2.5" even with some heavier gear on the truck, and 2.5" for the Rubicon which starts a bit higher. It over delivers.
Pricing... The kit I have you can +/- back into it based on...
For general use A/T tires just keep the 18s. Add some spacers and it helps the look. I did the spacers the day before my 35s went on and just put the stock ones back on for the night.
Before 1.75" spacers
Clayton's 2.5" Lift is a 2.5" lift on a Rubicon, 3.5" on your truck. Plenty to fit 37s.
Send Clayton a PM on the boards here and ask them about the kit they got for me.
This is with 35*12.5*17 Trail Grapplers
The mechanic who did the work is a top KOH racer and knows the guys at Evo and...
Consider the tire choices too. Using Discount Tire
37x12.5x17 - 26 tires
37x12.5x18 - 10 tires
37x12.5x20 - 15 tires
now if the one you want is one of the 10 available in 18" then it doesn't so much matter.
Yeah. Go off boost and lose all your torque and control. Get deep into boost and get a sudden surge over something you may be trying to slowly negotiate. Constant flat torque could certainly be better in some offroading situations.
The locker sensor in Wrangler JL and Gladiator Rubicons have started to become problematic. When they fail, it usually starts out as a blinking locker lamp on the dash, which then ends up in a “service axle locker” message. Once the locker...
For me shift points isn't the issue, it's the lack of power to hold the gear at speed. If I put it into say 7th and give it enough gas to not force a kick down even in manual setting, it will just start slowing down. It seems to be anything around 2,000 rpm in higher gears where you'd want to...
Highly doubt any shop gives push back let alone refusal. It's not really a safety issue it's a tire performance issue. The tire isn't going to collapse because it's 1" narrower a rim, that's just 1/2" each sidewall. Those things can support a truck at 5psi. Each tire is rated at 2,200 lbs of...
That 250A breaker seems too big, no? If I read correctly it's between the 12V and the inverter. That isn't going to pop on a 12V until +3,000 watts but it's only hooked into 1,500 watts. Needs a serious meltdown to trip it, won't catch a smaller surge that would still be enough to destroy things.
