2016 Rubicon GJ
« on: April 11, 2016, 09:31:59 AM »
So this will be the beginning of my, well her (maybe ours??) GJ (Girly Jeep)

Ya so you all know the story of my Toureg that couldn't...

Couldn't live with all that, so I'm getting rid of the VW and that lying company with the hippie green peace face!

We are picking up a 2016 JK, well GJ Rubicon. There are some things to still work out, however I started out with a rag top 16 Ruby, a local thing and was workin' the deal

The salesman demo'd the top removal, and that was that. With those flimsy zippers, it was on to a removable hardtop. Second thing...I had selected one with the cloth seats, but the lady of the casa nixx'd that. Nope, gotta have heated leather, electric curling irons, the optional make-up carousel, and vanity mirrors at every corner...Hence: The GJ!

We found another. It is located some 250 miles away. Hard top, all the Ruby stuff, all the girly stuff, and a hard top which is resistant to gunfire, up to Crossman BB guns, I think!

I wanted the D44 axles and little more. To get the only thing in the whole toy that had any strength at all, one has to buy everything else cosmetic and fake...Ya know, just to make you feel better about stepping out into the wild (Man's world) and away from the safety of our Bernie Sanders Culture. Of course, She wanted to attach a beauty salon to that, so we are buying something I will never drive, unless someone start to think I'm going for the Bruce Jenner to Catlin' thing.

I will get stuck working on it of course. And I'll be forced to smile up the place, placidly and quietly while on one of those hardcore off road weekends when I get to take off the top and sit in it with the kiddies while driving down a county road. Other than that, I plan to avoid it... Like a gay bar! I don't like heeps. I owned two real CJ Jeeps, which I wheeled constantly, wreckin' and rollin em over to the point I'd stop with the body repairs. That was then (A better day???) Now we have the JK. All the looks with none of the performance, Like I always say, "The fake and plastic fantastic sleep machine!"

It's a jeep thing ya know, you wouldn't get it! Well, when it comes to Wranglers, neither do I! All these new girly things share in common with their WW2 predecessors is that they carry (girly) men around to get their man buns done up and toes pedicured or manicured (Whichever of those words that pertains to feets) Oh and the fact that some of those those girly men do on occasion play modern warfare, so other than picking up carpal tunnel syndrome injuries, about 30 extra pounds of fat, and PTSD from being reconstituted too many times last night while playing, these warriors of new resemble (From a great distance) the warriors of old who validated the real jeep thing.

So, ya, I guess I'm gettin one...

Details: Engine: Mini van mill
Torque: 17 ft lbs
Horsepower: Claimed 112
Ground clearance: 3.2"
Departure angle: Can clear most speed bumps
Axle strength: You don't mention axle strength and jeep in the same sentence!
People capacity: 4 men of old, 4 modern day fat girls, or are those fat boys...can't quite make them out...
Over all rating: Excellent: Gets one from Zales to Kohls, back home to QVC safely and without anyone noticing
Known danger: The vehicle is capable of putting the driver or passerby's who unfortunately found themselves staring at it...to sleep, due to lack of stimulus!
Suspension travel: Already told you...It can get from the jewelry store to the salon, so the suspension definitely can travel!

I'd say it is a great starting point (To someday melt down and make a good 1/2" ratchet drive set.

LoL... could be worse Don. A few axles, some Rubber and say another $20k it will be "trendy"

I am looking forward to this build where Don extends the value and handy factor of the back up camera in upcoming months  :D The "how to" article on Jeep accessorizing.

Yea, I'm not looking forward to this one...

OK, really wanted that VW out of the garage

On a weekend a month ago, she worked late on a Saturday. She didn't come down to join us because the rutts in the "road" back into the hide were too deep...4WD only. And that 4WD better have some ground clearance and decent tires

Toureg, either count: Negative!

So that was that, the search started. No she idn't want a power wagon to drive to corporate hqts in heels.

So what can I get? The Kia and Hyundai dealerships have my pic up on their "Wanted dead, or deader" wall. So I can't even consider America's most popular kars!

That jeep with the grill that looks kinda like my old CJ's. CLose enough. Girls car that will never get wheeled and might make it back into the hide.

That's how the GJ was born!

I know how it goes man. Kay was debating about a JK or a Power Wagon and she bought the truck. Now with the Power Wagon back on the road in my sons ownership I was worried she'd want a Jeep LoL

But as it turns out she's pressuring me hard to just restore Patch and she will drive that when the crews done. "translation" She will drive the Crew and patch will stay how it is most likely. My daily life routine doesn't lend it's self to shiny dent free equipment.

Shiny and dent free is over rated!

I'll post up pics of all the new scratches on the Chebby.

Remember that tree that fell on my driveway a few weeks ago, blocking my way out?

Well, I was tired, and cold, and hungry, so I just took a heading out through the shortest part of the woods...and tried not to pay too much attention to the scratchy noises

Have some good scars from all that...

You know I had a thought this morning as you were describing your fancy new Barbie jeep. If Jesus were alive I think he might drive something like patch. Not that he as King doesn't deserve the best, nope I just think after doing some reading his vehicle might resemble an old beat up pickup. An imperfect pickup kinda like the people he surrounded himself with. But that's just my opinion & I'm a bit partial I suppose.

I hear those jeeps have very thin axle walls? They do look phony with those tires sticking way out making em as wide as a full size rig.

I recall that h2 you had, but didn't know you were an expert at rolling CJs.

So, why not just get a nice 4dr 1/2 ton truck?

Jeep quest: The saga continues!

Saturday we decided to buy

Kat deals with the dealership and locates three this side of the mississippi

One has a deal working

Both of the others is at the same stealership

This dealer contacted them and as of COB Tuesday, nothing heard from the owning delaership!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you believe that?

Some 250 miles away, and they aren't returning phone calls, answering fax's, texts, emails or messages on their website.

OK, well, Thur I am punching out for a few daze, so it will have to wait till next week I guess

This has clearance and would fit in the corp HQ



Of course, the $137k price tag might be a turn off....

Speaking of ground clearance, I didn't bring my micrometers down to the farm so I couldn't get an accurate measurement...

But the GJ is officially here

And the cool part is it was picked up and driven directly to the farm. It was off road in its second hour of us owning it and it stayed off road for two days before returning (with mud, and its first scratch, err, scar!)

I think Don misrepresented the GJ concept, I don't even see any pink highlights? I mean it has lockers, 3/4 ton (center sections anyhow) axles, the tires look legit, the t-case has 4:1 low range, I agree it has a lot of girly interior stuff similar to c-max but from the looks of what the majority here drive that's acceptable. I tend to believe the wife units decision to get a capable mall mulch bed navigating vehicle is treading in on your manly mulch bed territory & you ain't comfortable with that at the present time...... ;D

I didn't think I said anything negative about the wife unit? ???

Oh wait, when you said boss you were referring to yourself? Isn't that speaking in third person? It's been awhile but I thought that was a grammatical no no? I'm sure I must be wrong as a distinguished author such as yourself would never do such a thing. Anyhow, now I'm really confused who you were talking about? Not that it matter as I've been fired!😜

Naw, not that Norm.
The Toureg could not physically make it back to the farm...The road in IS THAT BAD!

So I got momma something which is obviously built for women, looks cute (to girls), can make it back in there and I don't like it. (Meaning I will not work on it much)

Well, first mine ain't as hoity toity as your wife's. Second I started thinking about the upgrades between my jk & my old tj. That in itself is a big difference. Then was thinking about your wife's jk & that old cj you spoke about. Still don't think the new jk comes close to that h2 you had though.....

I'm sure Kathy will not let him touch her Jeep...  That's probably why he is mocking it so severely...

She saw what my son and I did to my wife's JK at the farm...

Now that looks good. A little tire and lift does wonders.

The JK is a decent vehicle with a ton of aftermarket support.  Our 2012 base model Sport has over 80,000 miles on it and it gets around your farm just fine.  The Rubicon you bought has a lot of nice options already.  D44's front and rear, lockers, sway disconnects, low ratio x-fer case.  The D44's are good axles.  Remember, they were put under 3/4 ton pickups in the 1970's.  In a vehicle as light as that JK, they will hold up well unless you get crazy with tire size or you abuse it like your John Deere.  ;D
