    Rubicon talk in Chit chat

ID:	67846 Couldn't bring myself to post such a lame question in a tech or land used sub forum.

    How dumb would I be to bring a nice 96 4runner on 33-35s to the Rubicon? I'm not worried about making it through, it has a rear locker and winch, I know for a fact that I can get through. I plan on rock Sliders with kick out bars and a full rear bumper before/if we go.

    I'm just wondering if I can do it without smashing the thing up. Last time I was there was 2017 and I was in my beat up rig on 39s, so I wasn't looking at it through the eyes on a "stock" 4runner.

    I also don't want to be that guy on the trail that takes an hour to get through a spot because a rock might touch the body.

    My dilemma is that I have 1 rig that I know can make it and don't care about dents and scrapes (small samurai) but it can't fit my family of 5 much less everything to camp for 3 days. Last trip we took both, but didn't do anything to hard core at all. This works well for packing reasons.


    Since everyone likes pics.

    I thought this would be about Jeep JK Rubicons and angry bird grills, little disappointed.

      That's what she said! Wait ​​​​​​


      Sorry to disappoint you, I'm sure now that you mentioned that, everyone will ignore my question and start post pics of stupid Jk's




      Also, when I use the "upload from archive" option, it doesn't give me the option to make the Pic large and not just a thumbnail. When I go back to edit the post, the non thumbnail option is there? Wtf

        Are they doing the jamboree this year? If you go on the trail the week after that it's basically paved.

          I was trying to explain that to someone

          After a big Jeep run, it's like a 3/10

          After a bunch of beaters go through it can be a 5-6/10

          Ill have to check the schedule

            You should be fine as long as you somewhat baby both vehicles. If you end up catastrophically breaking something on the sami I could see the runner also getting hammered trying to drag it out. About 2 years ago I rode passenger in a newer land cruiser with 35s stuffed under it, No lift or mods, just 35s and it did fine.

              80, 100 or 200 series?

                That's a good point. I think we'll be going with at least 1 other built rig. If something breaks that bad that it can't move under its own power, I'd probably go out, get the parts and bring them back.

                That's a good point too, I remember BoogerWeldz rocking a basically stock FJ80 on 35s through the Rubicon.

                  FWIW, one of the large Jeep runs was canceled. I forget if it is Jeep Jamborie or the other. Plus TLCA's Rubithon was canceled

                    Seriously, you'll love yourself more for going for it and bending the shit out of your 4 runner. You get one shot, go for it. Who's gonna be worried about paint, sheet metal or money when you play it back. The only person that's gonna disagree with me is faggot ass SDCJ.

                      It's just a good dd mild rig, we've had it for ~6 years with basically no issues. I'm worried it will get one dent and be "oh fuck it, it's a beater now"

                      It would be pretty awesome to say we did the Rubicon in a rig that fits right in at a grocery store.
