They're impressive and a lot of fun. Really happy that we decided to get Pippi.It really is quite impressive what a little stocker can do. Nice job with driving to both of you. I remember when you taught me the e-brake trick on prison Hill before our first Rubicon run- In a red 2 door 6 speed. Jet looking good as ever too, so much flex. Thanks for sharing.
Oh, and you just know they're coming!Killer video as always! It's so awesome just how much a stock Jeep can do. Definitely the most capable vehicle straight from factory. And I'd know because for the last 10 months since I I've had my JK, it's been stock or at least suspension wise, (which changes tomorrow ) and I've put it through its paces. And yes, with a few scratches and bruises along the way. It's also great to see Jet out playing again. Something about him stands out from the rest of the rigs. Maybe it's the 38s, maybe it's the old school Slimlites, or maybe the black wheels
Well whatever I don't know
Can't wait for the next high quality Wayalife production haha! Can't wait for the experts to chime in on this one too... About how you shouldn't push a stock vehicle's limits or something or other
Not gonna lie, I've been having a hard time getting used to the clutch too. Nothing like what I had on my JK and nothing like what I still have on my YJ, CJ5 and CJ3B.I hate to admit it, but I have never stalled so much as I have with my new JL. 1st gear is definitely different then my last manual.
Awesome! So glad we could share this with you.I’m a new Jeeper and this was exactly the video i was looking for. Learned a LOT. Finally i can now see what disconnecting the sway bar looks like. Obviously an e-disconnect is awesome, but it’s no biggie to drop it just before starting a trail. Also finally seeing what a stock vehicle can do is eye opening. Obviously everyone wants 35s and a 3.5” lift from the factory, but hell even a stock sport can hold its own. Excellent work guys!
Thanks for the reply. I just posted a question about going to 35" tires. I really need more ground clearance but I don't want to regear . Any Suggestions?They're just 245's. Essentially, about a 31" tire. As I state in the video, the traction control on JL's and JT's are amazing. They practically make it feel like you have lockers.
Running the same thing. JL Sport 4 door Auto with 2.0. We've had 35s for a year now. No reason to re-gear, in my opinion. We don't have a lift on it yet, and I would imagine it would rub off road. But as far as performance, performance is fine.I have a JL 4 Door with a 2.0 Automatic.
Thanks. Unfortunately no off-road time with this one yet. But it flies up the mountains with 35s. If we stay with 35s, we won't ever re-gear.Thanks, that is the answer I was hoping for. With the Mopar lift and reprogramming the transmission shift points, our jeep dealer said I would be fine also. I just wanted another opinion from someone who really uses the jeep like I do. Nice looking rig.
This was fun to watch and made me feel good knowing I might have a shot with my two door manual Willys. Great video!!! Thank you!!!People new to Jeeps and or to off roading in general have been asking Cindy and I to make a video highlighting the some of the basics, tips and tricks that every newbie should know and for quite some time now. And, I have to say that we've been reluctant to do so if only because we know that we're not professionals or experts in anything and understand full well that the way we choose to do things isn't necessarily the right way, the best way or the only way. With that said, we finally got a chance to take Pippi, our bone stock, Jeep Wrangler JL 2-door Sport and with a stick, out on a trail known as Last Chance Canyon and to test her out on some rocks. And, while we were there, we decided to use the opportunity to film some of the things that we've learned over the years and share them with you. Things like, airing down your tires, disconnecting your front sway bar links, shifting into low range and picking a good line. Of course, the only thing we would ever hope for, is that the information you see might be of help to you someday. Oh, and as an added bonus, you'll also get to see how JET testing out his new 38" Nitto Ridge Grapplers. We hope you enjoy.

If they really are making radius arms now, I would NOT recommend them. They will NOT give you more articulation.I did some research on the lift. I like the Mopar 2" lift because is comes with Fox Performance Shocks and new radius arms, which will give me more articulation in the front. The price seemed to be fair as well. Thanks again. I will move forward with this next modification.
