RE: week later, no G.

Brent,

I am getting the "rock rails" as Dodge calls them. The stock BFG AT 33s will do fine for my off-road work. (I've never done any true "rock crawling.") Can't wait for it to come in!

RE: week later, no G.

For me, if i were to trade-in my G500, then i would seriously consider the 2007 Jeep Rubicon. Just a few things:

- 32" BFG M/T standard
- 4:1 transfer case...crawl ratio is 73:1 for 6-speed manual tranny! Yes, 73:1!
- Front & rear electric lockers
- Front axle Disconnect (like PowerWagon) = RTI 832!!
- ESP...stability control for on-road safety with full OFF capability when off-roading (I am a BIG fan of ESP as you may know)[:p]
- ABS with Brake Assist that is tune for off-roading...will allow wheel lock when braking on loose terrain
- Stronger Dana 44 (gears are larger, the pinion is larger and the shafts are now 32 spline instead of 30 spline) & 100% stronger frame than before
- Standard rock sliders...along with skidplates
- Side airbags available
- Approach/departure angles = 44/40
- More room inside...more cargo space (double size)
- Warn Winch is available!
- Coolest hardtop EVER!

The new Rubicon will literally blow away everything else in it's class in off-roading (Hummer H3, Toyota FJ Cruiser).

BTW, Kerr...if you want something more refine and roomier, then consider the new Toyota FJ Cruiser or even the Hummer H3.

RE: week later, no G.

WTF is this doing in OT?

I thought we'd all agreed that the Saigon/G crap was gonna stay in the G forum.

Sheesh. [:(!]

Most likely moved by either DUTCH or Brent (Hosts of G Forum). The G forum is very "strict". Rarely goes off topic. Basically everything has to be related to the G Wagen. If it does, then the threads get moved here. If you read this thread, it did get off topic.

RE: week later, no G.

Wasn't it that Rubicon talk what got someone in trouble with the boneheads at the Hummer forum?
