Did i buy a boat!

Well I finally bit the bullet and jumped in...traded my paid off 2005 Titan for a '14 Billet Silver Rubicon. Drove it 40 miles home and it is what I figured. Lil wind, lil rattle, and I love it! I'm 6'3 so it just fits and feels right. Hate the front bumper and want something that fits nice and works.

I love the look of the Rampage Recovery Front Bumper for the JK. Beastmaster has one on his Jeep called Sarge. Wish they made them for the TJ

Congrats btw !

I also like the Rampage and the Warn. They fit the exact length and hug up against the fenders. To bad the OP would need to trade another Titan to get one.

Congrats on the new Rubi! As for the boat reference, yes, I'm afraid you did, but it sure is fun! That said, we use Jeep - Just Empty Every Pocket.

We do, by the way, require pictures of all new Wranglers...it's a law.

Welcome to WF!
The last part of your comment was deleted....it wasn't called for, and literally makes no sense.

Enjoy your Rubi!

Congrats on the new Rig! Post up some pictures!

Check out our site for some Front Jeep JK Bumpers. We also have Stubby Front Bumpers if that's more your style.

You'll learn a lot about Jeeps from this forum! Let me know if you have any questions I can answer for you.

I had Rampage Recovery bumpers on the front and rear of my 2006 LJ so they definitely make them for the TJ!

They just don't have the same look. Idk. The JK one looks much meaner for some reason.

Now that I've posted my pic...I could really use some advice on how to get this money pit up and riding right. I've got an 80 mile roundtrip to work everyday and wanna run 35s. I'm old school and really don't wanna run 20s. 18x9s scare me though. Had a lifted ride years ago and went to narrow on the first set of wheels. I want some tire wrapped around my rim. Not rim around tires! Need lift advice too. Gotta run interstate everyday and a wife that will have to drive this. I live in Tn so everyone is pushing "Rough Country" on me. Had one guy tell me Teraflex if I want to spend a lil more money. Any thoughts

By the way...name is WB. Just saw some of the hating cause I didn't reply back in a timely fashion! I'm impressed! I figured save money for the Rubi instead of buying a new ipad?? Thank god for tax returns! Just for y'all's info I also own a 2007 Commander with the Gas monster HEMI in it. That's the wife's ride so don't hate too hard on a man. Yeah I know to throw a hand up to y'all boys when I pass by as well. So does the wife! Y'all fellas feel free to let me in on a lift that's not gonna break me and will make my shit ride down the interstate nice and twist up when I need it.

My suggestion is the AEV 3.5" with their high steer and geo. brackets.
