    another reason K5\'s rule..

    i was out hitting some trails about a week ago and my friend was in his new rubicon and me in my blazer and a friend in an 83 Yota.. so of course the rubicon being all cocky goes up this huge hill, nobody spotting him or anything just tries flying up it! this hill was scary, loose rock, big holes and rocks and the edge of a cliff on the right side.. well all in all the new rubicon locked front and rear gets stuck! and almost looses his jeep over the edge of the mountain! would have sucked.. took 2 hours and my hi-lift (which he broke the handle off /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif) to get him unstuck.. so hes down the hill and i just go up it a little to see how he got stuck so easy.. my friend is at the top spotting me, drop it in 4Lo 1st gear and just crawl right to the top! woooo... ha my 21 year old $3K truck vs. a new 03 rubicon priced at $28K aint got nothing on me!!
    just wanted to share that i out-did a rubicon, plus i dont have lockers or anything.. just a 3.5" lift and some 33's!! man i love it /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Sounds to me more like a lack of driver skill and spotting than any fault with the rubi. Gimme a good spotter and I'll drive a wheelchair up mt rushmore.

    Did he take the Rubi back to the dealership for a refund? for $28k he could build a K5 that would dominate that hill /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
