Ok, bought a 2013 JK 2dr Rubi, stock all except the Rubi, which is the good stuff......roll up windows, manual locks, stick shift, life is good....figured, throw on a 1 inch body lift, small spacer lift, put on a set of 35's, and have fun with the family....nice little daily driver on my smallish commute, fun weekend wheeler, the kiddos will love it.....just a little longer, little wider TJ....simple to work on, easy to mod, etc....I've done all this before, no problem..
Start reading here....
1. Computer issues??? Sensors??? Limp mode???
2. Are the axles really made of paper thin plastic???
3. WFT is an evap canister???
4. Hydrolock in 1 foot of water???
So, I love having a jeep again, love having a manual in a daily driver, and have really enjoyed my new jeep......and, as I have been reading and dreaming of a lift and a little more clearance to do some light crawling on the weekends...on the surface, a base 2013 Rubi with lockers, 4:1, and 35's should be the ticket, right??? Good multi-purpose rig....
Serious question - are there that many issues with these things, or much ado about nothing? I can easily wait until the end of March, trade the jeep for a tow rig when jeep money is strong, buy sole purpose wheeler.....or are these things stronger than they seem, the computer issues are rare, I can run a simple lift without a re-flash, the rubi axles are as strong as a TJ, this evap thing is an easy fix, and they don't turn into a submarine in 1 foot of water
I love this jeep, but I could definitely use some insight....
THANKS for any opinoins
