My Rubi's gaining weight.

Just a little vent... Adding all the mods to my Rubi is making the suspension sag. I have a skyjacket 4" lift to add but in the meantime I have to deal with the rear bottoming out whenever I hit anything hard. I know what I have to do it's just frustrating I'm working mad overtime and on my one day off each week I'm to tired to do what is needed to my poor jeep. Hopefully July will be better.

Thanks I neede that.

Yeah it adds up doesn't it. Rock bumpers on both ends and you've added what, maybe 300 lbs? Some guys around here (we have lots of rocks) put full skids under them and that's another 300. Its like getting all of your fattest buddies and a keg of beer all loaded in your JK

It'll come together, just takes time and saving the $

08 2Door Red Rubicon. Rock Krawler 5.5 Longarm Coilover, Polly rear Coilovers. AEV hood & wheels, 37"KM2s, JE Reel 1350 shafts, 5.38 Yukon gears, Superior axles, Shrockworks stubby, Fab Fours rear, sPod, Rebel Offroad brakes, Warn winch and lots more.
