They want $650 for a motor with 160,000 mi. Which is outrageous. Maybe I need to quit being such a girl and just pony up. $4500 for the package $5000 to get it in the jeep, $2000 more for odds and ends = no chance in hell. That doesn't include finding a trans a transfer case.

For just a few dollars more you could build a Jeep SRT8 twin turbo: 10.75 Second 1/4 Mile.

Because you're the type that will be living off the grid, Unabomber style in 10-15 years.

Hey guys! New to the site, and new to Jeeps! My family just bought a 2010 2dr Rubicon and I spent some quality time breaking it in on Rocky Gap!

Any other trails I HAVE to do as a Jeep owner in the Vegas area?

There are a few good trails around here. Some are technical, some offer views, some go to mines, some go nowhere, but all are off the pavement. Check out davidson law's website. He has most of them documented with gps data.
