That’s what goes on my Jeep

Synopsis:
Jeep is one wheel drive.
Shameful…

Matt's World says:

Awesome! Be safe though guys that was a little sketchy, but I guess that’s kinda the nature of the beast with 4×4 off roading, lol!

bblauter says:

Cummins!

Michael Schöch says:

guys, please drive with winter tires in snowy conditions, all season or all terrain tires have no chance against them.

Bmwryder says:

I really like your channel! I watch your videos often and I’m subscribed, but I just don’t have 42 minutes to watch a video ☹️

Sam Alex says:

Larry parker says:

Good Job Guys

JaronAames says:

Its Cummins* NOT cummings…..

Last Spartan says:

What size tires did they go with ?

Rich Beach says:

Carsten, beautiful and well thought out build.

Chris Droste says:

I honestly have to speak up about the sponsorship angle on this project. I like watching build-ups and how you progressively test how new stuff affects the jeep’s performance off-road; but “cheap jeep challenge” and “thanks to our sponsors for sending us $1200 in tires and another $1000 in suspension kit(s)”? That’s not really a challenge and it’s most certainly NOT cheap. how about parting out this stuff like s true cheap challenge? like springs pulled off a super duty pickup, or if you’re going to have “sponsors” send you goodies what about that $150 spacer kit and NOT $1100 in springs, spacers, shocks, track bars, etc? tacking on 40% of the purchase price worth of parts just seems against the spirit of this challenge.

Vincent Chen says:

Cool video. I love Carsten’s TJ. He was pretty smart in his build. The spare tire mount is choice. Love how Tommy’s is too. I like the older Jeeps because there is so much you can do. The JK and JL are so expensive now. But if do the mods yourself, wow the older series is allot of fun. 4 x 4 is not cheap. False that this IS cheap. It is relative. $40,000.00 is allot of money vs. an oldie and spending over less than half that money. Wow, what you can on your own is amazing.

What rock sliders was he running?

Uwe Schroeder says:

Never got the American obsession with large engines. There’s several references to that little 4 cylinder engine. Of course it has less power, but the vehicle is also lighter. 4 cylinders worked well in WWII and later in something like the little Suzuki 4×4’s – which are quite capable off road for what they are. Thing is, today you have all these safety things that make vehicles very bulky. Look at any car made in the 70ies or early 80ies – all thin doors, little in terms of side-impact, little in terms of front impact either. All small vehicles. I remember the first VW Golf GTI – which has an insane power to weight ratio for a vehicle that size: 133 brake hp per metric ton, all that with a small 1.6 liter 4 cylinder engine.
If you take weight away, you can take engine power away. It really depends on how much you have to lug around and that determines how much torque and power you need. Of course, lockers would help, but let me put it this way: do what we did back in the 80ies: take your rubber floor mats, throw them under the tires and usually that’s enough if the terrain isn’t too crazy.

William Robertson says:

Question for Carsten… I’m looking to go to 33s myself and have been researching the minimum lift needed to keep from rubbing. I was interested in hearing you finish what you were saying about your lift and springs but it seemed like you got cut off before you finished. Sounded like you put together specific components yourself. Care to restate what you used or provide a list?

antonw194200 says:

The snowflake-marking on the tires does not really mean that they are snow tires. It just means that meet the bare minimum standard to be legal for winter driving in countries where it’s mandatory.

That wooden board could have shot back and done much damage…very lucky.

Scott Y says:

Great video on showing Carstens blue rig….I bought my ’97 TJ back in ’06 for $5k and did a few minor mods over the years. But this last year i decided to commit to making my TJ more offroad worthy. I catch alot of crap for having the 3 speed auto, but i love an auto. Racing offroad dirtbikes for years with clutches….i just wanted to relax and enjoy the ride.
On Black Friday got a really good deal from 4wheelparts on their best Currie 4″ short arm lift, FOX Shocks nitrogen reservoir and Mickey Thompson 33″ tires….now i am hooked All Over Again on my TJ. I have No Plans of ever selling my rig and now looking forward to more and more and more etc…Mods! JEEPS ARE A FAMILY!!

Paul Harris says:

Great videos guys, Thanks

tmmsplace says:

Really good production in this video.

IJBCI says:

42:00 minute episode! I like it!

SheerWill Survival says:

Have you tested the 2013 -17with quad 1 system on grand Cherokee

mazdapremacy97 says:

Cutting it close with the nails and the foot

CamaroAmx says:

That’s why I bought one with a limited slip (also factory 30” tires).
Mine has 3:73 rear gears (4.0l 5 speed) and it has no issues in town (I can keep it in 5th down to 34mph). I can go up some decent hills in 4th gear.

David Beachel says:

I heard Carston mention the Cummins R2.8.
Stay away. It’s not what you think it is. It’s a China-based engine.
It’s not based off of the venerable B-Model.

8:12 Roman loses his shins and 3 toes to flying mine door

Steven Quere says:

The Jeep Wrangler TJ defies all laws!

Jeremy Rhodes says:

How much where the axles??

Ricardo Ellison says:

I had a set of those BF Goodrich tires on my Ram 1500, mediocre tire, 85% street/15% off road, my wife wouldn’t let me put anything “noisey” on…like some Interco IROKs…Didn’t know there was some woman behind the scenes calling the shots.

Steven Quere says:

The Cheap Jeep Don’t Care! #PowerWagonDon’tCare

Connor Golden says:

Love these videos. Thanks for the great content.

ARich says:

Love other car buffs that love their cars and know them literally inside and out. Nice job, and great series.

Bryan says:

I bet on really cold days,,, those rollers will not roll as freely

David Cross says:

The headlights are a must for jeeps that go anywhere at night. The JW speakers are an amazing spread with good color.

Tim Speegle says:

guys….I have a spartan locker for a Dana 35 just sitting here on the workbench…I’m happy to send it to you…
