Full time AWD with a low ratio. Stick is only available in the 1.4T.

I think that low ratio is only on the Trailhawk which will only come with the 9-speed auto + 2.4 Tigershark combo.

Which is fine, I don't think anyone would want low range out of a Trailhawk. I'm going to be awful tempted to buy a Renegade if the price is reasonable. I don't do any serious wheeling but it should be good for light trail duty and hauling the mountain bikes. I can even tow my motorcycle with it! (barely)

After tearing into the brakes I didn't want to take the front apart again whenever I wanted to do gears, lockers, axle shafts so I went ahead and ordered everything. Just about have it all, the front & rear 3rd members (5.29 Nitro gears, ARB air lockers, solid pinion spacers, heavy duty pinions) from Just Differentials will be here tomorrow.


As it sits right now








Aw yiss! Mother ****ing parts!





Slee crossmember/belly pan

Thanks!

I have a bad case of car ADD but I absolutely LOVE driving this thing around and I can imagine keeping it so long that I pass it on to one of my kids. I just wish it I could drive it to work but 1 trip uses 1/4 tank. This is my wife's daily driver, I take the Beetle to work.

ha! I leave the jeep with my wife too - she only does things local. (and for the same reason - it gets 10mpg or less, most days lol) - the looks she gets, a 5 foot nothing little thing jumping in and out of a lifted truck - ha.

my wife used to drive the 80 that i had as a dd as well. Grocery store trips in suburban philadelphia TOTALLY require an 80 series on 37s with armor and a snorkel.

i wish i still had that thing.

She's always telling me about the funny looks she gets when she pulls into the church parking lot to drop the kids off. Everyone else has minivans or a prius and here she is rolling up in that beast.

I want something like those for my Pathfinder. I hate the plastic running boards but my 5' tall wife needs something to step on to get in still too.

I love you guys. It's still kind of weird to me, that I went from drooling over these trucks as a kid to owning a shop and building them at 25. I wish the allure hadn't worn off though...I sometimes forget how excited people get over the Defenders.

I have a running build thread for this truck on a Defender-specific forum, and will do one on ExPo as well since it's definitely geared towards what a lot of those guys do. I'm just waiting to reach a point where I have a decent chunk of progress to show.

Definitely get on ExPo, some of those guys have Texa$ for their rigs, and a good builder gets big attention (look at some of the UJoint builds)
