Re: Rubicon is on it\'s way.. Upgrade suggestions?
Good info, I would like to see a pic of your rubi, got a link? Unfortunately I don't have the tools to fab up my own stuff, heck I don't even have a garage yet [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img], I forgot how many rigs you had til I checked your profile, makes me feel real guilty about getting rid of the scrambler [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img].
I wish I didhave the shop and tools (welder, etc.), I like doing as much work as I can myself, its not only fun, but a nice stress reliever from the every day rigors ( i love hanging around under my Jeep beating on something that won't fit [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]).
I agree with you about the locker actuators, my first outting in mine my front locker wouldn't engage and when i crawled underneath, one of the vacuum lines was damaged, all i had to do was cut off a little and push it back on, but I was wondering the same about why they would put something so critical in an area that is likely to see rocks, sticks, etc. Relocating to under the hood is a good idea.
Since I can't fab up my own stuff, and since I don't have alot of time to do so anyway, I will likely have to go with a preman. skid, the tummy tuck looks to be the strongest with built in gussets, but you may be right about how easily it can be damaged,
I'll have to check out someone with one installed to see how well its holding up,,,,and as for never being completed with mods, well its a jeep thing,,,,I don't think we will ever be completely satisfied with the project, else it wouldn't be a "project" and heck, adding, improving, and tweaking is what makes this fun, once I buy me a new house in a year or so with a garage, I will be able to do alot more.
