Is this something they know about or do you just have to hope you get one with a hitch and not tell them about it.

Their large SUVs are usually Tahoes, yukons or suburban and those all have a hitch. I don't normally volunteer the information that I am going to be towing with one.

Where did you rent it from. The only places that had the large SUVs that I could find were the airports

I always rented from the airport due to it being close to where we lived and their hours made it easier to fit my schedule. You pay a little more but the hours and such made it worth it for me.

My buddy was selling his rubi and I though i may as well just sell mine and grab his. He already has the lockers, gears, axles and stuff I wanted so I skipped out on doing on the work myself and bought his

No fun but everyone I wheel with is getting bigger and I needed to catch up. I don't have the money right now to just start buying parts. People are asking like $3k for a D44 front axle I wanted to put in my sport, then gears, lockers, skids all started adding up. These JK's are ridiculous with how much parts cost, but I'll still be adding things to the rubi.

I dont know much about the jk axles but in the tj's there little difference between the front 44 and the 30.

same thing with jk's but I didn't want to trust 37's on my 30. I had a truss and gussets for it but I've been trying to buy a welder to teach myself how to weld. But with my wedding coming up It's been put on hold

Just go down rich hill road, just off 910, and make a left. You'll see it, it's on the right. I wouldn't go back there without a lift, tires and winch. The first 100ft is a little tough rock crawl/climb, but if you can get back there... It's heaven lol
