new member intro / questions
Hi, I am from Turkey and been driving ( spending money on ) a 1977 CJ5 for 15 years now . I have finally decided to upgrade to Rubicon unlimited for both my daily needs and off-road needs.
For someone from states this may sound like a small step however in my country we have to pay over %120-130 tax for cars . In this case Rubicon costed a small fortune over 110 grand. So to make this bold decision I had to invest desire and love for the jeep, for a decade.
I am aware that minor and major disappointments awaits me and I want to get some heads up and prepare my guard. I will be using my Rubi majorly for daily on road drives ( family purpose) and 10% offroad. Which initial problems I must expect?
I understand that hard top insulation is an obvious problem which headliners would u recommend ? Rugged ridge / hothead / bestop .
Do I need a lift kit or ? Would standards satisfy light, medium offroad experience ?
Do lift kits effect on road ability dramatically ?
And finally what were the best and worst investments you have made for your jeep so far?
Thank you all
