In 1998, Richard and Jacie Rubenstein moved to Arizona and switched from touring on the pavement to four-wheel trail exploration. They love Arizona's plentiful trails and scenic areas. The couple owns a '98 Sahara-edition TJ and installed a 3-1/2-inch Rubicon Express suspension system, slip-yoke eliminator kit, ARB Air Locker in the rear, front and rear bumpers, differential skidplates, rocker guards, 33-inch M/TRs on Rock Crawler Extreme steel wheels, Rancho 9000 shocks, MasterCraft Rubicon seats, and much more.
Another Happy NAXJA Member
This is Bill Powell's '94 171,000-mile Cherokee Sport and daily driver. The XJ features a 3-inch BDS lift, RE track bar, JKS disconnects, Rusty's crossmember, T-case skidplate, and differential guards. Bill built his own custom rocker guards using 2x3-inch steel tube. For performance, a K&N FIPK kit, Jet chip, Jeepers and Creepers throttle body, high-flow cat, and DynoMax after-cat system were added. Bill would really like to thank his fellow members on the NAXJA Web site for their invaluable tech help.

Happy 'wheeling, Joe.
