2012 Rubi - new owner
 
Hey folks,
New to the forum and Jeeps in general. Just bought a 2012 Rubicon Unlimited 4dr. I have only put a 2.5" Rough Country Boost with 325/65r18's and Fuel Crank wheels...The ride is not bad but real "twitchy" feeling. Gonna check air pressure first but does anyone have any ideas of what to look at next?

Pic uploading keeps failing no matter what size I try to upload...sorry

Welcome to WF! :wavey:
Air pressure could be a culprit as sometimes installers will over inflate. Google "tire chalk test" to see a procedure for finding the right PSI. Also make sure all the bolts are properly tightened. RC lifts do not have the best reputation.

You can't upload pictures directly. They have to be hosted on another site such as Photo Bucket. http://www.wranglerforum.com/f2/how-...ture-8794.html

Might also want to try an alignment (here's how to do it DIY), or perhaps improperly balanced tires.

Why does your Rubicon have Sahara side steps? :confused:

Maybe he's not taking it off road and wanted factory style side steps instead and swapped them out? (you can order them from the parts dept.)

+1 to UpHill for the tutorial, well done.

By what?

SCreed 02-09-2012 04:01 PM

Yeah I know guys...side steps...one of the "ok's to the wife"...it was the only thing she wanted but I get to keep adding!!!! It came w rock rails...still gott'em. It is a 3rd ride for us as a family. Wife/kids get convertible & I get a toy. Already have a 2500 GMC Duramax that is my hunting:fishing:everyday truck...not much offload stuff. Had my share of tearing up trucks when I was younger. This will be my oldest son's vehicle when he turns 16, then I can pay on the next kids'...

Thanks for all the help.

SCreed 02-09-2012 04:04 PM

PS- air pressure adjustment helped a lot!!! Alignment and balance was done...Never a steering wheel shimmy, just awfully sensitive to road changes...tire pressure adjusted and much more stable.

SCreed 02-09-2012 04:06 PM

@UHB. That's the method I was using. Just kept getting upload failed...

You do, we just don't have as much/as big of privileges I believe.

I'm in the same position, I wanted the Rubi but with little kids I had to get the side steps too! So for now there will only be some back trails and light off roading in my future.

You can get rock sliders with built-in steps that will allow you to have the best of both worlds. You get the step up for easy access and you can still do serious offroading without any issues.
