Rubicon Express

So, I was just checking Rubicon Express' website to see if they had any updates about their financial situation. If you read their front page, it says that 4 wheel parts has bought them. I wonder if this will bring any changes to a fantastic brand. Kind of makes me nervous, because procomp is garbage.

What do you guys think? I'll be keeping a close eye on them.

Yeah, I'm going to keep my eye open for reviews. I really hope not, because that's who I was going to go with for my next lift.

Transamerican or something like that owns 4wheel..smittybuilt and procomp. Rubicon express parts will eventually be made in china with cheap steel and poor craftsmanship.
They are done as far as Im concerned.

I'm going to convert my re joints to jj's when they ware out. What a shame they had to resort to selling out to 4wheelparts. I was going to buy some 4.5 front springs when they came back too. Looks like it's time to look for some old stock at one of their vendors.

4 wheel parts, 4wd Hardware, Smittybilt, ProComp, G2 gears and axles, Winch Depot, Jeep Top Depot, Performance Products and Tire package.com is all subsidaries of transamerican auto parts. Major supporter in over seas manufacturing. If you buy from any of these companies then you support CHINA.

Rubicon Express will be next. They arent concerned about quality, just profit. And everyone supports them. Anti American.
