Damn that is a very nice looking beast there. I will definitely take a look into the MOAB editions as well. Thanks for the info!
As much as I would love a brand new one, I am trying to put some of the money away from selling my jeep and putting it towards grad school. So I am planning on buying a slightly used Wrangler preferably less than 40K. Those AEV conversion kits are incredibly nice but very costly. I absolutely love the work you have done to yours and am looking to do something similar if I get into one. Your tires are ridiculously big though haha! What is the avg gas mileage like on the 4dr wranglers? Are you running premium fuel?
You can find a nice used Rubicon JK for low 30's for sure...
Yes , they are huge, You don't need 37" tires...35's are great for the JK's too.
Gas mileage when it was stock was average, now..the thing drinks gas like crazy, Big tires and 4.88 gears really burn the fuel.
I run 89 in my Jeep...My motor, intake, and PCM are all 100% stock.
That AEV is great...but a lot of money if you aren't going to actually use it 4 wheeling ALOT!
Whats the deal with Auto vs Manuel? I'm assuming manuel is better on the trail for gear selection...but what about a DD? Is the auto still capable for the occasional off road trip and
hunting on old logging roads? The new 3.6 is supposed to have cured a lot of the issues with gearing in the 3.8 and 4.0 models but I have no experience with them.
I'll be doing a lot more city driving then on the trail and also towing a boat quite often, would you still recommend the manuel over auto for this? I can't decide between the 2...
I guess it's just personal prefernece between an auto trans vs. the 6 spd. trans.
I think the auto would be easier to offroad with but I loooove shifting, makes you feel like you're in complete control on and off road.
