Jeep Tech Talk / N3 Shocks
« Last post by DAMTALL on Today at 12:48:37 AM »
My mother in law is looking to buy a 2.5" Rough Country lift with N3 Shocks for her 2003 TJ Sahara.  Mall crawler (sorry Joyce), but wondering about the N3 Shocks.  Does anyone know about them?  Yay? Nay?  I am hoping to get her out for the New to Jeepers Run this year!  Thanks for your help!

Thank goodness it Chris Crowell isn't in the lead!  His head is big enough being on the back of a Show and Shine tee shirt!  :rotf  :fu  Just messing with you bro!  :jw

I wore that shirt yesterday and stood and looked at that beautiful picture for a good few minutes before pitting it on.  Great Jeep and great picture.

Thank you Rich.  The things you say are the main reasons I became so involved.  We try to keep the place civil.  But honestly, it is folks like YOU that make this a great place to learn and share.  I have had a few really good chats with you and learned a lot from you in person and online.

May I ask what group(s) we are talking about, just so I don't make the mistake of going on their websites?  Thanks!  :tu

It could actually be two different forums (possibly more) as the two guys we mentioned frequent both. Jeepforum and wranglertjforum
Jeep Tech Talk / Another MPG question
« Last post by total2010 on January 24, 2020, 11:01:31 PM »

So I recently upgraded to 4.88s on my 12jku Sahara but I'm still running my 31.5 mud-terrain tires.  I have a front and rear DV8 bumpers and a Smittybilt roof rack.

Question is, should I be getting 10 mpg in city and 13 on a highway while driving economically? I never floor it and have always maintained a 60-ish MPH average.  I feel like my previous JKU 08 manual was getting better MPG than this.
Trailer Talk / Re: Best trailer camper for a JKU
« Last post by total2010 on January 24, 2020, 10:51:08 PM »
I like "camping" but hate tents, especially when it is raining, so I opted for a Casita 17' trailer which was 2500 lbs dry. It towed perfectly fine stability wise even when we went to Moab, however the V6 was underpowered with 37s and full armor. I just downsized to a 13' scamp which are only about 1200 lbs dry and has all the same amenities minus a two person dinette. The fiberglass campers are great and light, but not cheap. The JL shouldn't have any issues towing this one. I would definitely recommend one if you are looking to tow something

That's a beautiful setup!!  :murica :murica

I have upgraded to 4.88s now and I'm running 32s do you think I can do it?

Too cold and too icy.  1/2 ice forecast late Friday.  The chains would have gotten me up and down but it would have destroyed the antennas so I bailed and went to Freezeland road north of Linden.  Glad you didnt go up.  It was really bad up there.  I talked to a guy who lived on the second range on the radio and it was as bad or worse than predicted.

The contest went well despite being at just 2400ft.  I probably took first in the nation in the FM category.  Been trying win that one for 5 years.  I think I finally got my white whale.

It comes off in seconds.  With or without, I gauge lane changes with the side mirrors.  I can see behind me fair enough with the topper on.  If I load it high, I just use the side mirrors, which I use anyway.

Not as bad as I imagined.
