If you thought the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4×4 is an off-road beast, the new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon will give it a little competition. Jeep took one of their most off-road capable Wrangler trims, the Wrangler Rubicon, and upgraded a few exterior parts to make it stronger in all off-road situations.
Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon 4×4
The front axle of the Wrangler Rubicon is an important component to the vehicle’s off-road capabilities and the front axle was focused on for the Wrangler Rubicon Recon’s upgrades. In addition to the standard electronic-locking front and rear Dana 44 axles that have a 4.10 front and rear axle ratio, Jeep has further enhanced the front axle with has strengthened tubes and heavy-duty end forgings.
Other upgrades include heavy-duty cast front and rear differentials covers and improved rock rails. The new rock rails are shortened, making it possible for drivers to easily switch out the Wrangler Rubicon Recon’s standard 32-inch BF Goodrich KM off-road tires with 35-inch tires.

If you are an off-roader with a Jeep, or plan on getting a Jeep Wrangler to go off-roading, it is important to know your vehicle’s ground clearance and angles. If you don’t know your vehicle’s ground clearance or its different angles, you could easily get stuck or severely damage your vehicle while off-roading.
Running Ground Clearance
Running ground clearance is a huge aspect of off-roading especially when rock crawling. This term is also referred to as just “ground clearance” and “ride height.” Basically, running ground clearance is the distance between the undercarriage of the Jeep and the ground. Your vehicle’s ground clearance is important to know when off-roading because you will be able to estimate how big an obstacle is and if your vehicle will be able to clear it without getting stuck or damaged.

The Jeep name has been around for 75+ years now, and in that time the brand name has certainly become iconic. So iconic that Jeep’s have been in many famous shows and movies throughout the years. Specifically, we can think of movies and TV shows from the ‘80s, ‘90s and 2000s that feature Jeeps.
“Dukes of Hazzard” is a famous comedy show from the ‘80s and it is known for its iconic orange Dodge Charger nicknamed, “General Lee,”, but that isn’t the only vehicle remembered from the show. There was also a 1980 Jeep CJ-7 named “Golden Eagle” that Daisy got and drove after her Plymouth was destroyed in a famous scene.
Ah, Back to the Future”, another 80s favorite of many! Back to the Future features several cars including the movie’s signature car, the DeLorean. But if you think back to the film, you might remember the scene where Marty grabs onto the back of a Jeep Wrangler and ride on his skateboard because he is late to school. [click to continue…]
