  • Hi Eddy.
    First of all : thanks, thanks, thanks and....thanks for sharing the Wild Wild West video !
    I have a favour to ask to you... Is it possible to get the "writting" of your comments ? I would like to translate them and - if you are interested - to put them like subtitles in French.

    Cheers !
    Olivier
    Q: Do I need an adjustable rear track bar?
    A: Not necessarily, especially if you just have a 2.5" lift. A track bar relocation bracket will do a pretty good job of re-center your rear axle although, I would highly recommend that you install one that drops from the frame mount and NOT one that attaches to the axle mount. An axle mount bracket that isn't reinforced will fatigue the factory mount and cause it to fail.

    I just read this. I have a Rubicon express 2.5" lift I plan to install when it warms up some. The relocation bracket attaches to the axle if I'm not mistaken and I don't think I am. Should I trash that part and use a different one, and is there one you think would work better with the kit I'm using?
    I just realized that you are out of Carson City, NV. I'm in it shock right now :shock: that this whole time I could have possibly seen your jeep roaming the streets. I'm up in Carson City all the time for school at Western Nevada College on the hill. If I ever get the privilege to see you or your jeep. I have to say hi and maybe one day go on a trail ride if you ever lead out groups on the weekends or special events. Hopefully the videos for 2013 JKX will be up next month. Well have a great day. :thumb:
    Most of our pics are taken with an iPhone 5. The higher quality ones are taken with an old Sony a700.
    I've owned both and now own two 4-door JK's. They simply are better. At least, in my opinion.
    hey Eddy is there a thread about 2 doors vs 4 doors ?? I had a two door but im split on trading it in for the 4 door so I really want to see pros and cons
    Very cool :thumb:. I like it, I might have to copy that idea. My bumper is ok but the tire shakes and bumps around. I am not really happy with it for the money I spent. I think some thing clean and simple, like what you are running would be great. Thanks again Eddie.
    Hey rizzicon, we have no bumper and the frame rails have just been capped with EVO plates. On Rubicat, our other JK, we have EVO d-ring mounts installed there instead.
    Hi Eddy, I have some questions about your back bumpers, or lack there of. Have you done a write up on them? If so I will check it out. If not can you tell me what and how you did them. I noticed the EVO stamped plates and tow points. But I am wondering is it just the rear end frame? Is it an EVO kit? Can anybody do this? Do you have pictures of your bumpers? I would like to see more. When I watch your movies I see people bottoming out or hitting there bumpers. I just think its a great idea. Keeping the bumper close to the body.
    Yes, you will get the full 12" of travel. Regarding long arms, if you can afford it, they will correct your suspension geometry when running a 3.5"-up lift and that will help improve your on pavement ride.
    i'm sorry, a couple last noob questions about the Evo Mfg bolt on coil over system. with the factory length adjustable control arms, can i still get the 12" of travel out of the system? And i know you said forgoe the long arm kit but i see you have the evo high clearance kit on the Rubicat. Just wanted to know the added benefit of that
    They were actually Spyderlock Wheels and ATX was nice enough to get me 20" rings. ATX makes the Spyderlock wheels for them.
    Alright sounds like a plan. Thanks for the insight. It's a big help. Btw how did you manage to get your hands on 20" slabs. Can't find them anywhere
    The only long arm kit that doesn't require welding is the EVO Double D and Full-Traction kit. TeraFlex's long arm kit DEFINITELY requires welding. I should note that if it were up to me, I would forgoe a long arm kit in favor of bolt on coil overs and just run the required factory length adjustable control arms to make it work.
    thanks for the quick response. i'm looking to build my rig so i can be considered for the jk experience in the future. It's just my end goal to come out with you guys. I just wasn't sure if there was a lift good enough to hang wih the monster coil over setups you guys were running. I'm between a solid lift or the front/rear coil over kit and long arm upgrade you have installed on the Rubicat.

    The lift would just save me installation costs because there's no welding involved with the long arm kit, and it's a little cheaper OR i'd do the Rubicat setup if it is that much better in the long run.
    jrg5386, yes, it is. However, after running all the lifts I have over the years, I would recommend an EVO MFG Enforcer kit over it. The TF kit was too tall for my taste and the coils too stiff.
    hey eddie, is the 4" teraflex flex arm kit for a 07-13 unlimited rubicon that you did the write up on, a good enough quality kit to handle the trails you guys tackle on the jk experiences such as moab, the rubicon, or the trails in colorado (excluding carnage canyon)? I understand that i'd need other supporting mods, but just curious about the kit.
    Eddie -- long time lurker, first time poster. Love your stuff man. Many of us on Facebook have mentioned you should also link up an instagram account. Pretty big jeep community on there, you're photos would blow them all away (I'm sure everyone there already follows you on FB). Keep up the AWESOME content.
