I just wanted to introduce myself as a proud new Jeep owner and wanted thank you for the wealth of information that is presented on this site and for everyone that has contributed.
I recently purchased a Rio Grande 2.5 Liter from Reno, which I actually fly out there this coming weekend to drive it back to Michigan / Ohio where I currently work. It's going too the mechanic in Truckee to get everything checked out and for any problem areas also the get fluids dropped. I plan on hauling a single axle boat ie (1600 lbs back from AZ taking the flat route) was wondering anything I should check or any insights you would give me. Also what nerf bars do you like ? Still reading but would love some insight. Thank you in advance.
That's what I've been reading. I couldn't pass it up for 2k though. Any advice when towing, I've heard move weight more forward on the trailer but wasn't sure a 100% as I've never towed with a Jeep before. Lots of other vehicles though.
Is it a 5 spd? If so just rev match and down shift to help save the brakes. Looks like a great Rio. Mine started as a Rio. No evidence left other than the Rio back seat. Lol.
Yes it is, okay I will definitely do that. I hope it is, I actually had a buddy pick it up for me ( a former Jeep owner and said it looked good for the price so I have yet to see it in person) I know I will haven to do some work once it gets back to MI/ OH of course. Can't wait though I've been looking for a while, really wanted a first or second gen Bronco but those were always past my price point for a decent one.
