Jeeponomics 101: Eternal tirekicking for the trigger-less Jeep

JLUR was designed to take 35s stock. Pretty amazing. If I did a Sport, that's when things get :fullretard: for 35s. Rubicon flares would get you most of the way, but would still need a lift if you weren't doing axles. Rubicon axles are wider...not to mention the 4.10s and lockers. A Rubicon without...

Jeeponomics 101: Eternal tirekicking for the trigger-less Jeep

35s fit on a Rubicon with zero modifications. It's the only thing I would do to a Rubicon. I have no interest in lifts. I though we were discussing a different model, familiar with the 35s "fitting" the JLR. JLUR was designed to take 35s stock. Pretty amazing. If I did a Sport, that's when things g...

$3k. I'll do 35s with a JL, really want 4.10s for that.
35s+ lift is like 3k flushed down the toilet, stock rubi not capable enough ? :shock:

Nah, I'd swap to Rubicon axles eventually. Limiting down to LSD would take away pretty much everything.
How much are Rubi axles with employee pricing?

No LSD, doe?
The brake based LSD is just fine, jeeps are super capable even at the lowest levels. I don't see the big deal.
Yep, exactly.

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/switches, remote proximity entry, LEDs, cold wea...

BCM needs to be reprogrammed by dealer and lots of wiring run. Would so much rather just buy it with those installed. I know I want one for my winch wiring at a minimum.

Motorcycles are HARD to see when backing up...especially if they're travelling above 40 mph (which he probably was). IMO, it's on the rider to pay close attention and adjust speed appropriately. I agree. It happened about 1000ft from a 4 way stop so I'm willing to bet the rider have it some sauce a...

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...

Kid at fault or truck at fault? Not sure. I don't ride motorcycles but the speed limit is 40 so I imagine both went paying attention, or one wasn't and the other was going too fast to react.

Yea...you could make money on that without a doubt...but not if you modify it.
It's not really a cream puff anymore. I've put almost 5k miles on it so I'm just gonna keep driving it.

Still :notsure: how an oil refinery "has no money". They buy oil on the open market. Refine it, sell the products. If the products aren't worth more than the oil they're buying you bleed money. If the profit per barrel of oil isn't over about $5 you bleed money due to overhead costs. They've been b...

Dang Johnny. I didn’t even think about your company closing up with that explosion. They're claiming they are broke. I think the banks have no interest in forking out another $100MM to fix the shit.
