Good morning first thank you for including me in this forum. I've been lurking for a while now, but thought I would share a little. I bought a 2007 Rubicon a few months ago as a Christmas present for myself and my grandson. The day after Christmas he somehow managed to roll it in the front yard. My wife wasn't a happy camper(she is a little more than over-protective of the grandchildren) nothing hurt except his pride. Just a quick reminder of how quick things can happen. He wasn't doing anything crazy just turned too sharp on a heavy bike. I think he was just too over confident because I had told him the bike wasn't that fast. The bike wasn't hurt either, this is one of the reasons I bought a Honda they take a beating. One thing that came out of it was, this brought him back to earth a little. He was amazed at how quick this bike rolled and that he couldn't drive through it or get back under the oversteer. Anyway just a quick story to show the young ones. Have a great rest of the holidays. Again thanks.

Welcome to the forum. You might want to add some wheel spacers behind all 4 wheels. They start at 1” wide and go up from there, they will give you more stability.

Thanks for the reminder! New guy here but thought that I would throw in my 2 cents. 4wheelers can be very useful, a great way to enjoy the outdoors and enjoy a little adrenaline rush. However, things happen fast! I hunt in an area with rough terrain and there have been 4 deaths in the last 15 years or so. I have had accidents without goofing off. Do not let complacency get you hurt! Safe Riding

Practice makes perfect safety first solid axles are more tippy than independent rear suspension. This is a 600-pound machine you need to be an adult male to throw these around. Just take it easy grandson 💙 pick a better line next time
