Were you planning to go to 1-tons when you bought a rubicon? Not trying to hate here, but why pay the premium for all of the rubicon parts and cut most of them away for tons?

Nice jeep though. :drinkup:

I originally was going to just keep it on 35s but after it rolled 111000 miles I thought it would be cool to go to 40s then when it hit 120000 I was pissed cause the longarm kit I had was junk and my steering box got messed so I sold the axles and a truck I had so I could build up the jeep I allways wanted, plus I wanted a Badass jeep like I keep seeing all the big company's run and rich guys so I figured I'd build it myself to prove that an average guy could build one and drive it daily

If done correctly, you can sell the Rubi 44s for way more than the cost of a set of 1 tons.

Well selling the 44s did help with most of the cost of the 60s

I had the rustys la kit and the upper links were binding when I would flex causing it to eat up the upper link flex joints

Rustys.... Imagine that. The new rough country.
the pressure makes us stronger, the struggle makes us hunger, the hard lesssons make the difference, and the difference makes it worth it.
