Found some Jeeps! Found out my skid plate likes to touch the ground so now it's time to take off that tc drop and buy a better skid plate.
Had to lock up 4 times my dura tracks 33" just about 2 inch shy of gripping the big rocks so time to buy some 35" couple upgrades I should be smooth in 4 low

Was awesome. I went in few trails I never been on. My lj did well - the rub issues. And my 33" duratracs did 90% good there was few rock hills that I had to lock up on but had nothing to do with the tire just the size tire so 35" duratracs would of grabbed the rock more. Tried 3 times then locked my front up and just released the brake and let my jeep do the driving haha. RUBICON knows how to keep me stress free.

And I have been researching that RIPP supercharger and man think i will purchase that rather then the v8 hemi.

I plan on going allot during the Christmas brake "boeing schedule " .

No I just put this deal on couple months ago. Since i have the rubicon I never needed to drop my tc anyways. I see lots of people use these when they lift there rigs around 6-8" but I'm at 4" so rubicon = 1 " lift stock so I'm really only at a 3" lift. I want to get a flush skid plate $300 what they run I need to save for that deal. And now from lookin at it I shouldn't hit anything again at walker besides my rear bumper . The skid plate when dropped got me stuck once I Teeder tod on a hump since I have the longer cab I felt like a wiener dog trying to get over a bump stop in the parking lot.

Yeah if you do a flat skid, you will probably have to do a body lift, motor mount lift ect.

Forgot about that. Well I'm sure just eliminating that spacer will make a diff that's 2" more clearance then going from 33" to 35" will be about 1.75" more thinking it will be good.

You will still hit it lol trust me I am on 36s and still did. The factory skid I believe hung down like 3", but your absolutely right 35s and no spacer will be a big improvement.

After removing the spacer now my brake light on the dash is beeping.... Idk how to make it stop. I think it's the e brake but it's the red BRAKE light on the dash any ideas?

Flashing like on and off repeatedly or flashing on and off occasionally like a loose wire? Might be a loose connection if its intermittent.
