My Jeep thread


Recommended Posts

Wife and I needed something to pull behind the moho and what better than a Jeep? Wife wanted a stock jeep, after I stopped snickering I started looking, knew I wanted the 3.6 motor, 4 door, Rubicon - cause I wanted the Dana 44 and didn't want to swap them out if I got the Sport or Sahara. Budget started out at $25k, wasn't finding much so went up to $35k and came in less than that.

Found a 2012 Rubicon in Phoenix, lots of txt's, emails and talking to the guy, then I asked @Squatcher if he could go take a look and considering what he had to say (he knows how I am and what I was looking for) the seller and I struck a deal. Borrowed my old flatbed from @Grease Monkey and hit the road to Phoenix to do the turn around. Deal went as planned and had no troubles there and back.

Brought home an ATC70 for @Poule43 that Squatcher for him.

It has a lot already done to it and needs just a few things to make it ours: slider/steps, few interior addons, and some gear for the road & trail. 

Has a BDS lift (3 or 4''), Fox shocks, PSC Hydro Steering, over sized drag link and tie rod, front XRS bumper with winch and Roadmaster tow bar, rear bumper is a DV8 with swing away spare tire carrier, 37'' Goodyears, Fenders, inside fender liners. 

Inside: leather heated seats, auto, rear rack/tray in the back. All in good condition. Nice Camel color and black. 

Thanks for looking and I'll take any tips and tricks for wheeling and practical addons - I don't need any goofy crap :lol:

Went up to Santiago Peak the other day just to get it dirty. Lots of flex in the suspension - no pics of that.

Very nice, congrats!

We drove a jeep around all last weekend...went thru a complete tank in 5 days....really liked it except one thing....I could not see any skyline from the low roof/bar. 

That a common complaint? Any fix for a 6ft guy like me?

 

Otherwise was a fun ride.

Nice find congrats 

Looks like it has most everything you need already we love the solid grab handles I put them in for my wife but find that I use them quite often. Enjoy they are a great tow vehicle and you can explore just about anywhere your travels might take you we have towed ours all over the western states

Matt, start with a windshield cover that fits. Lol

I bought mine from a company called heatshield. https://www.heatshieldstore.com/

The one on my wife's wrangler is 5 years old and still looks great.
