2011 WK2 Off-Road in Utah

Just a quick video from a recent trip up Mineral Basin trail in the Wasatch. This was the first outing in "Handsome Dave" since installing the RRO 2.5" lift, Mopar skid plates, and Rubicon take-off wheels & tires. Certainly used all. Quality is kind of crap, as my buddy is shooting on my cellphone, while also trying to spot.

Nothing too exciting, but the road bed through this section of trail is all just large, loose rock. You can see the traction control working in bursts of power delivery. I do miss how easy this stuff was in my JKU Rubi. Though I did sell that because stuff like this was too easy; took some of the thrill out of offroading the standard trails.

Re: 2011 WK2 Off-Road in Utah

What would you guesstimate the cost of the RRO lift installed (need another coin jar lol).

Thanks for the vid btw!

My buddy (who is also the cameraman/spotter in the video) and I did the install over basically a day in his garage using hand tools and floor jacks. I think something like 7-8ish hours total. Afterwards, I got an alignment, and that has been the only major additional cost for the lift.

THOUGH, I must say, I think we nicked the front driver's outer CV boot, and now I have to replace that drive shaft. It was a tight fit the first time, so not looking forward to that work. I would also recommend small spring compressors to assist with getting the struts back in place if you're going to do the install yourself.
