Li'l Desert Fun

Pics from a solo trip out in the Arizona desert.










Sway bar disconnects are definitely on my priority list of upgrades, since losing some articulation with the beefier Rubicon springs.

2013 Wrangler JK, 285hp, NSG-370 6-speed, NV241 TC, Dana-44R/30F 3.73 axles, Rubicon suspension, armored, and Toyo Open Country ATII's...

2003 Ram 2500 QC 4X4 Hemi, stock for 10 years.

Looks like fun. Wheeling the desert alone...that could end bad.

How the heck did you wheel out in the AZ desert and not get a speck of dust on your fenders or front bumper!

Don't tell me you polished them before the pics! LOL



Seriously, looks like fun. Then again, that's why I fly out to phoenix every year to scrape up my dad's Jeep.

You say you lost articulation with the rubicon springs. Which springs do you have? Example my 2 door rubicon softtop came with "14/56" springs Are they 4 door rubicon springs? The 2 door rubicons came with almost the same spec springs as the sports normally (sports often have "13/54" or "14/55" springs. The rubicon fronts shocks are the same except gas vs hydro. The rear rubicon shocks are about 1" longer than the sports.
