My wife jumped back into the 4x4 world today. It was time to say buh-bye to the turbo Jetta and hello to more traction. For some reason, I just couldn't talk her into a 4-door Rubicon...lol... I think the little Honda will do just fine for what she needs :)

Looking good man! Glad she is out of the Jetta!

Heck yeah! Do an SAS using Dana 44s out of a Rodeo,very soft waggie or 1/2 ton Chevy springs or for that matter , adapt a Rubicon long arm kit to it. Push the front axle forward about 4 inches and the rear back about 2. Add an Inchworm crawler box. Stick some 35s on it. Regear the axles to 4.88 and add ARBS. Leave the motor stock.

Well, before you do that stuff, I guess it would be nice to talk to your better half...

It needs a roof rack and a small pop up camper.. That would be your camping rig!!!
