Glad to see you’ll finally be able to get it built now.
No order sheet to show for it yet though I will post pics of the parts when they get here!
I was looking under the Jeep last night and found the reason why it's been riding like crap lately. The front shocks have blown their stuff all over the control arms
Is anyone running the Elka shocks from Teraflex?
They look pretty nice and I would like to get some reviews.

Haha, love the soda can comparison. I did the TFlex kit a few weeks ago, wish I had thought to do that.

Pulled my hard top off yesterday and mounted the soft top. First time on a four door.

Man, what a pain in the ***. I was using all my strength just to get it to latch up front! Makes me not want to ever let it down again.

I figure the fabric will stretch a bit. Anyone have tips for making everything "fit" when you're putting the stock soft top back up?

Yes...I have a tip...set it on fire

It will get easier. Remember to pay attention to the front part of the side windows...the edge that is perpendicular to the ground doesn't just fold over, it kind of "c"s into the plastic door frame. Work on properly folding your top back, into the "w" as described in the owners manual, to avoid the fabric strips getting twisted up around the frame bows and inhibiting the ease of putting it back up.

Took the new 2012 Rubi out on its first 4 wheel drive paths with my two boys. Unbelievable at what this jeep can do. Everyone enjoyed the afternoon. BTW is there a reason not to lock the axles and disconnect the sway bar?

Crappy cell phone pic of the after, as well as the all-important "soda can comparison"

Never heard of a soda can...I use a tape measure myself, but whatever works for you!

Isn't it amazing how fast air will come out of a tyre but it takes bloody forever to get it in it in the first place?
