how are jeeps for jumping? i mean is it highly likely to break something? I know it probably puts a lot of stress on the suspension but can it take it with out break components?

Rawkon 09-08-2009 07:33 PM

i dunno some people have better luck then others, SHOCKS are the biggest difference in suspension componant failure. my jeep was jumped about 30 times this weekend and ran the woops for hours. no damage. ive been to pismo a dozen times and i jump the heck out of it there. but i do LOTS of maintanance. i always make sure everything is tight.

ok cool thanks for the info

I really wouldn't want to jump anything bigger than in the video. The short wheelbase of Wranglers makes for a very unstable vehicle at speed on loose terrain.

Rawkon 09-10-2009 01:27 AM

yea anything bigger and im gonna start seeing cracks real fast. hahaha nothing bent so far!! I REALLY need to truss that front end. lol
putting my spare tire down low really helped keeping my back end down in the woops. i just need some bumps to help suck up the impacts. oh and the seats and 5points made a HUGE difference. no more flying out of the seats hahaha

Haha, that is freakin' bad ass...

More balls than I have! At least for now!

Ooooo were gonna have to get out real soon and see what huge shocks and bumps can take thats a great place to test them I missed the race but my boys won.I got all the shocks and bumps dialed I cant wait to test em out.You need one more tire on back to keep that a$$ low.:D
