a few weeks back I went with the land rover guys to show them some trails I found out they were only able to do a 2+ trail but on the way home I could here a few of the guys talking on the cb about what up grades they where going to get to make the 80,000 dollor 4x4's more capable when all of the sudden one of the says skrew it Im trading mine in for a jeep

Sounds like you were driving around with a few wankers who do not know how to use their truck. I guess this is the types of people you enjoy wheeling with. Makes you feel superior.

Every vehicle has it strong points. I Jeep likes to crawl; A LR likes to work. It's all in what you want.

Take a look at the Camel Trophy. You'll see what I mean.

Actually, I like the Rubicon. But, why in the world did they do the axle like that (44 and 35)?

Daniael, I'm not trying to "peg" you at all. You are making arguments on a Jeep board that obviously we have and will continue to reject. It just doesn't make any sense. You don't see those few of us who bothered to register on discoweb trying to convince you how much better a Jeep is. I'm always happy to meet new wheelers and don't discriminate by what make and model someone drives.

Like I have repeatedly stated, I like rovers. They are just not what I wanted. I'll gladly wheel with anyone. Just don't come into my house and tell me how much you hate my beer. If you don't like it - don't drink it or leave. I'd like to say see you on the trails but I'm on the wrong coast. If you ever get out to SoCal I'll be more than happy to wheel with you.

-Chuck

I dont ever se that do any thing that hard every thing that Ive seen that truck do is a 1 -2+ trail my jeep was doing 3 -3+ trails with just a 3in. lift and 33's no lockers

and for fast look at jeep speed not only do they go fast but they also crawl
and they still have flex

Not sure I understand this question. The rear is a dana 44. The front is a 44. The weakest point on them is the front u-joints and outers which use the same 27 spline stubs as the late model dana 30 which was upgraded from a lower spline count a number of years back (can't remember year and model).

That weak point is fine for 33's but once you go larger you want to consider chromo's F&R with either full floater or 30 spline outers stubs in the front. If the front were unlocked it wouldn't be a problem but lock it and its a disaster waiting to happen on 35's or larger.

I have moved this thread to 'off topic' since it has no real value to anyone as useful or reliable information.

Yes. My guess is that DC did that so the TJ Rubi did not need a different unit bearing form the rest of the TJ's. Historcally the front d30 has held up well and since DC does not support "aftermarket" configurations (ie lift and larger tires) it was not necessarily a bad choice for DC. However it does suck for us who like to go big. It's easily rectifiable by chromo 30 spline outers with unit bearing or to run a warn hub.

DC has fixed this in the JK's with 32 spline all the way around on the Rubi's. Anyways, I believe that's the case, someone correct me if I am wrong.

Crap. I'm convinced.

For Sale: POS '06 Jeep SWB Rubicon with 3k miles, built to the hilt. Warranty voided every place I could think of. Selling dirt cheep. Need to buy Yellow Land Rover D90 ASAP before my wife finds out. My guess is she won't even notice but why take chances?

I'm hoping to hear from AEV tomorrow that my flares have shipped. I'd really like them on before Big Bear.

But you are too late. The Mrs. just got home and said no. I even showed her the Rover in the movie "She's All That" (Rachael Leigh Cook is a hottie) and she still said no.

Can I hijack a thread or what? Not as good as tiny though .

Man, you can't being rolling round Big Bear without flares, what will the other off roaders think?


I don't hijack on purpose, it's just a gift I suppose.

Okay no one can seem to behave like adults with this thread so it's gone. I'm closing it out.
