Then there are the more extreme examples, not direct competitors with Jeep, like the Humvee and the Unimog. Never had a longing for a Humvee or an H2 or H3.

Only brought it up because my buddy...

Useless,

I didn't say anything about rev limiters. Huh?

Maximum horsepower isn't based on a rev limiter. It's the highest point in the horsepower curve. The engine can still rev higher, but...

Remember those early Broncos? Great vehicles, about the size of a Jeep with solid front axles and coil front suspension. A 289 V8 and a carb that let them run at very bad angles. Good automatics....

It would be really fun if Toyota re-introduced the FJ40 in an updated version that wasn't watered down. And also if Ford re-introduced somthing similar to the early Bronco. I don't trust Fords...

Sorry you missed my point that there is a difference between steady state delivery and accelerating mass. If you can't separate those two, you can't really talk about how much loss there is in a...

It's really hard to imagine that the acceleration of the mass is the major, or even a significant amount of the calculated loss. The dyno runs I've seen reached a maximum RPM and were held long...

Seems like it would be difficult, if not impossible, to directly compete with a Jeep type vehicle on the market under another name. A Jeep is a Jeep and it's a generic term too. America loves Jeeps...

If it has only settled on one side you have a spring problem and spacers would not be a good fix. Get some new Jeep takeoff 19/60 springs, then add 3/4" pucks up front only. It will sit level with...

Somehow in your work the top changed too!? Weird. That didn't happen when I did mine. That probably contributed to some of the height change in the rear.

This is pretty much what I did, but you might find it easier to remove the top shock nuts after the springs are pulled out. Mine is a Rubi, so I didn't change the shocks. Also, when setting it on...

That's funny. I agree, but no way I'd mount mine there. There is no good place for that big iron thing outside unless your rig is mostly for trail use. I might need it once in the next few years...

No, n1as is absolutely right. I've been in those situations myself. A LS is a very nice option, but it is not perfect and can cause some problems in the right situation. In very low traction areas...

Not enough information. Does the Jeep you are looking at have BLD?

If he gets stuck in the Mall when his train horns grind on a speed bump, he can pull himself back off with the rear mounted Harbor Freight winch. Or he can just honk the horns and blow himself back.

When the drum has only one wrap on it, the circumference is less than when the drum has many wraps on it. So, less cable is pulled in per drum revolution when there are fewer wraps on the drum. ...

Nice to be on the same page about a common problem that seems to be so poorly understood. There's a lot more to this game than simply slapping on a lift kit and a set of giant tires. Thanks.

I added a Zeon 10S and Rampage front bumper to my 2dr Rubi. I switched to a 19/60 springs and added 3/4" pucks up front only. Net lift was 2" in front and 1' in the rear. Now it supports the...

Nice theory, but I'm afraid you missed the point. Stabalizers don't just cover up problems. That's why Mercedes, Ram, Volkswagon and Jeep, to name a few, put stabilizers on brand new vehicles. ...
