I've looked through tons of threads on here looking to see if in fact there was a "Best" year or not. Didn't find much, need some help, opinions welcome!
I would love to get a 2nd gen just for more power to tow things around and better MPG's but i could never wheel one. I would break it.Heh, yeah don't get me wrong, I love mine... But for future purposes I wanted to know more about the 2nd gens, and if they were even worth getting over the one I have... :huh:
The front diff case is aluminum and breaks easily along with the diff's (front and rear) To solve this you should do the Titan Swap (expensive)Heh, why's that? Are they soft or something?
so would a titan swap on a 2nd gen be more expensive than SAS on a 1st gen?The front diff case is aluminum and breaks easily along with the diff's (front and rear) To solve this you should do the Titan Swap (expensive)
The fist Gen's diff's are indestructible! The steering is weak but the parts are cheap for the most part and can be changed on the trail.
Can you imagine what i would do to a 2nd gen? I brake cheap parts!Mid 2007 they beefed up the front spider gears but they can still break. ARB now has a locker for the R180 that replaces the weak gears.
Mike, you break your first gen. LOL
You can wheel 2nd gens pretty hard if you are smart about it, I wasn't so smart and paid the price.
I would look at 2008 and up.
