Let me first say i might be just as guilty seeing how i have blown 4 years of pay on making a buggy out of my 08 JK. But i wanted to see if any one else noticed what im seeing and if its starting to bug them to?
every one thinks your gears are going to fly your D44's are going to taco like a ten speed hitting a curb. Not to mention your jeep will flood when you hit a puddle and your 37's are going to roll past you during a horrid death wobble....
Its a jeep, drive it till it breaks then fix it!
People who maybe once a year put there jeep through the ringer enough to worry about such break downs, even if you do most people roll out on the trail with 10 plus other jeepers so what are you worried about? I break all your jeepers rules and almost always go out alone exploring, hell thats why we got a jeep to begin with isnt it? to get out and away from people and seek some danger? Those who wheel or explore like this have more reason to beef up all these parts (that have yet to break, you just built them up cause pound-the-skinny007 said to)
Jeeps are amazing guys, the D44 is sweet money for a stock rig, the E-lockers are pretty damn cool and holy hell do you really need 44's? Our fathers in WWII managed to trash jeeps and kick some nazi ass with a stock one... If we all turn our jk's into buggies does it really count as jeep wheeling?
Like i said, im 100% guilty of this and im upset with myself as much as the next guy. and ill tell you, my jeep, is a buggy with a JK body on top.
Im done venting for now
