Opinions divided, as usual
The main problem here is that there are no kits. Virtually. Everything comes from the US, and with the shipping costs, with the VAT, with the customs... Everything comes to be triple of what you guys pay it in the US. So a $1000 RE kit comes very close to $3000, and I really can't afford that kind of money. I have to work 5 months without spending a dime on anything (virtually: no food, no nuttin). So a $1000 kit looks like a good oportunity.
On the other hand, the rough ride does concern me. It is rough as it is, I can't imagine it being any bumpier than this
But then, it's a Jeep thing...
How bad should the gearing problem be? That is, 33's without regearing? I should forget about the 5th gear, even on the highway? Will my MPG get a lot worse or just a little?
As for the light, I wasn't thinking about the offroad lights or the lightsbar, but rather those small "position" lights. 5 watts max. Something like pick-up trucks sometimes have on the roof, so when they're coming down the road you can see the headlights and those 3 little lights on the roof. I belive I've seen those on Hummers (the military ones), but I am not sure.
