The Rubicon in a JK

It's time for me to sell my beloved YJ and upgrade into something newer. I was considering a TJ but found a great deal on a JK Rubicon.

My questions is who has done the Rubicon Trail or maybe Serria Trek in a JK, and if so how well did they do. I am not concerned with there ability just there SIZE, being much wider than a TJ. I am looking at a 2 door JK not a 4 door.

I love my YJ with lockers, just wondering last year I wnet through with a buddy that has a 4 door JK and it was WORK for him. And I don't remember it was becasue of the width or the length that caused him problems. He also blew the rear end on his Rubicon JK when we where on our way back home.

The four doors need more lift than the 2 doors to account for the length

I did the Rubicon last June in our 2008 JKU one 35's and a 3"
Lift. It was awesome. I wouldn't have changed a thing. As I understand it. The trail is much easier after they cleaned it up. As it was before, the width of our rig was no issue. Hope it helps.

You could take a Prius through the Rubicon now, it's pretty sad. Sierra Trek is at Fordyce right? Fordyce is pretty tough, most recommend 37's but it has been done on 35's.

those 4 doors look nice lifted.

I think I'd like to run the Rubicon this year
