Jeep guy with Mojave tan 2018

Post by TommyDuncan » Thu May 09, 2019 10:34 am

Just bought a new PW after many years in Jeeps...

For me this thing is (almost) perfect. We spend more time in the desert than woods living in the Las Vegas area so hopefully size won't be too big of an issue.

The main things I needed were:

Ride quality- my wife had her neck fused but we can't give up the outdoor offroad lifestyle. The 2 door Rubicon just doesn't ride good, even with 37"s, air bumps, and adjustable Fox 2.0s.

Towing- We have a 3600lb offroad pop-up trailer(and I want to make it even heavier). Dirt bikes and possibly a bigger trailer in the future.
The new Gladiator has the same old 3.6 and it isn't really up to towing anywhere near the 7600lbs they rated it for.

Space- I'm already scheming air tanks, multiple batteries, more tools, etc...

Offroadability- lockers, swaybar, plenty of room for tires.

My BIGGEST concern is... this thing is HUGE!

I'm not worried about scratches but I need to get used to this.

I bought this less than 10 hours ago and 37"s are already on the way!

Welcome!

If you’re really serious about plush ride, talk to Thuren and they will hook you up. You might be their first ever “my primary criteria is fused-neck comfort” call, but I bet they would have something for you.

I’m on Thuren’s Stage 2 2.5” Kings and with the tires aired down my truck just floats down trails.

Just ran into another local guy with one on FB. Named Chris...

Are there any local PW groups?

Logandale is fun, but I might need some rocker protection first.

I know where there is a lotta old mines and stuff, mostly hidden in the Mojave Preserve. Also up in the trees since it's getting hot soon.

Filled my PW full of friends and took a day trip to the Overland Expo in Flagstaff on Saturday. Great road trip vehicle!

I need to learn how to make my pics smaller because it keeps saying "attachment too large". They worked before...
