JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
One of the crew here at CoolGuyStuff.tv somehow managed to trick his wife into letting him get a brand new Rubicon. How is still unknown but...who cares! Let's get to work!!
The idea is to only put the best on the new Rubi, so we are starting with the TeraFlex 4" 8 arm JKU lift. This this is awesome!! The system includes 4” lift coil springs, all lower and upper adjustable FlexArms, 9550 VSS shocks, front adjustable trackbar, front swaybar disconnects, rear swaybar links, rear trackbar bracket, bumpstops and all necessary hardware. You can run up to a 37” tires with it, and that's exactly what we are going to do! For more information on the lift just click the link: www.teraflex.com/suspension
One of the things we like to do at CoolGuyStuffTV is do the installs ourselves. One, because it's fun. Two, we want to be able to show everyone what a few of idiots can do. If we can do it, ANYONE can!
We start off pretty smoothly, splitting up and taking on multiple things. You know, divide and conquer, right? Scott started on the lift, I threw on the rock sliders, and Dave...well Dave kept us company...for a while.
About the time the sliders were installed, Dave had somethings to do, so it was just me and Scott. No problem though, this guy and myself have done a couple of these things now. Besides, we had the TeraFlex YouTube channel to give us some guidance.
For the most part things went relatively smoothly. A couple dumb mistakes a long the way forced us to redo a couple things, and we were doing the entire thing without power tools so this was taking some time. However, with every beautiful new part installed was a rejuvenation of our spirits. It's funny how something like a shock, or control arm can look so good, but...it's just how we are wired I suppose.
By lunch the front end was nearly complete and once that was done, it was smooth sailing...kind of. Anyway, let's keep our stupidity out of it. Fast forward just over 12 hours and we have either managed to ruin a brand new 40 plus thousand dollar Rubicon OR we have an awesome looking lift that can run 37s! This thing looks SO GOOD!
After a road test home, the morning brought the tire install and the completion of phase one of the CoolGuyStuff.tv Rubicon! Check out the full line of TeraFlex product at www.teraflex.com
