I'm in Robinson. Just got mine last week and loving every second of it. I'm waving to all other Wranglers. If you see me, top down in my silver/black buggy, wave back!

Thanks for the welcome. Traded Toyota FJ that I'd owned since April of 2006, used to offroad quite a bit and have done some slightly-above-moderate off roading in a stock FJ (except for sliders).

Jeep is bone stock at the moment. Looking to probably do a 2.5" lift and some decent tires. I'm still getting used to the way the Jeep handles, taken it off road a couple times since I got it. I freaking love taking the top off.

I'm liking the solid front axle vs. the IFS but I bought the Sport version and there is no locking rear diff (like the FJ) or obviously no ATRAC. The ground clearance is also lower along with the water fording capabilities. The new Jeep engine actually packs more horsepower but less low end torque. I am being very careful about what I do with it right now as it is a VERY DIFFERENT beast.

On the positive side, the turning radius is outrageous on the Jeep and being able to clearly see in all directions is a revelation! Did I mention how great it is to take the top off??

New to the forum. I am out near Robinson. Anyone know of a good Jeep mechanic in Pittsburgh area? Having some stalling issues that I have been dealing with since Winter and now I have some other random problems. I think it is time to take her in.

Thanks!!!

I'm dipping my toe into the whole modification thing...

This Thursday I'm getting a "Ready Lift" kit (3.0" in Front, 2.0" in the back) and LT295/70R17 Nitto Terra Grappler tires.

I know, I'm not exactly turning it into a "Monster Truck" but I'm taking baby steps into what I fear may become an obsession...

Anyone around the Homestead area have any experience with setting up a lsd. I had my rear axle shaft out and decided to change the leaking pinion seal while everything was apart. When trying to get the pinion nut off the carrier spun and the spider gears fell out and the side gear with the clutch packs fell out as well. I need to know how to get all the clutch packs and clips back together

Same group as last time and likely more... about 30-40 of us are getting together at the Tilted kilt in Robinson at 3PM. Park out front, there should be room.
