How much are Rubi axles with employee pricing?
$3k. I'll do 35s with a JL, really want 4.10s for that.

No LSD, doe?
Nah, I'd swap to Rubicon axles eventually. Limiting down to LSD would take away pretty much everything.

Jeeponomics 101: Eternal tirekicking for the trigger-less Jeep

Got it, sounds like a PITA to do after the fact. Kind of...it's a Mopar kit so at least it's documented. I'd add it to a vehicle for the right price. Another $1k off that orange one or low interest rate financing, and I'll get serious. Though, if I was ordering one, I'd probably go Rubicon with tow...

Jeeponomics 101: Eternal tirekicking for the trigger-less Jeep

How difficult of an install are those aux switches? The OEM integration there looks :tits: so I didn't know if there was some BCM that needed to be reprogrammed to recognize them or anything. BCM needs to be reprogrammed by dealer and lots of wiring run. Would so much rather just buy it with those ...

Jeeponomics 101: Eternal tirekicking for the trigger-less Jeep

Oddly getting more dealers to respond to e-mail price requests on 2018's. They're all 2-2.5k below employee pricing or $7-$8k off. Thing is, they all require "settling" for too many or not enough features. Not really sure 2-2.5k is enough of an incentive on a 2 year old vehicle. I'd almost rather j...

Has RS3 been mentioned yet? Although their prices were still :mindblown: when I was looking at them.
I think the S3 has been ruled out because :gorf: is more useful?

My goal is to have it until I'm 40 I think... 10 more years. Every time I look to off it, I just realize it's pointless and it's the best thing for the money. I am always S2000 curious but I feel like I would just go back to a Corvette after a year. I could see going to a Boxster/Cayman but not sur...

I think I am going to do a somewhat involved partial restoration of my Corvette once we get a house/garage, likely this winter. It could use a lot of little things replaced and updated at this point, but miraculously leaks zero oil/fluids.
Like a cage and race seats? :popcorn: :excited:
