This truck is replacing a Jeep Rubicon lifted on 35's for me…. It gets used.
We've had one forest day in it, and I was pleased with it's performance.
Had to bring the tires down to around 30 psi to smooth out the ride. Once we did that, it was comfortable. A nice rigid chassis. The shocks are VERY well damped. They soak up the hits and water filled potholes like they weren't even there. The suspension is stiff, without being punishing. It feels sporty, not mushy at all. Plenty of power, and the steep gear ratio is appreciated. I'm very happy with the truck off road.
I wish we could further de-activate the ESC system in 2wd. I love hanging it out around corners. The truck is very tail happy, but balanced once it steps out.
Offroad mode in the suspension is rough, bone jarring even. It should be called "rock crawl" mode, because there is no going fast comfortably in this mode.
No locker of any sort. Twisting through a cross ditch can be disappointing. You'll be left, wheels spinning in the air. Heavy brake pedal pressure, matched with gas will simulate a locker with the rear LSD.. It just isn't the same. Wishing they gave it a locking/LSD rear diff. Eaton / Auburn / Etc.
Paddle Shifters! WHY NO PADDLES! You are left with these stupid buttons on the wheel… Which admittedly i'm getting good at using.. But really? The Grand Cherokee V6 had paddles… A 400HP Rebel does not? Come on.
Front Winch mount. I've already contacted Warn and Westin.
Front Locker. Just a little something to help pull out of those tricky spots where you are otherwise left looking like a dummy..
