plus I think someone needs lower gears in their jeep, if something needs pulling I skip the truck and go straight to the jeep
Thats impressive, i did a 4 wheel burnout on dry asphalt in mine trying to pull out a bone stock jk outta a crazy muddy ditch

Probably sent from under my broken heep

Last time I tried to do a burn out/wheelie I didn't move an inch and just shattered my spider gears. I haven't tried to even pull anything since

You talking about the one in Sun City? That guy is a ****ing rip off, you can go on car-part.com, get raped for shipping, and you'd still be saving money over that asshat in Sun City or whatever city it is.

Dude wanted me to pay $900 for a used AX5 with no guarantee that it works, not even a small warranty, just a $900 gamble... no thanks.

If you drive it on the road you would know if it was locked

I figured so, but still with the previous owner if he spooled it it would probably only be half done anyway, heh

Yeah! That too haha. I've learnt that with my half doors you gotta slam. With my tailgate, you have to be gentle

Everything of mine closes fine with just the normal amount of pressure. Except the tailgate doesn't latch all of the way so it rattles something fierce with the tire on. You really gotta throw some muscle into it and not knowing my own strength I bent it lol.

You may be able to adjust the latch where it wont raddle
