Is the Rubicon Rock-Trac 4WD System Worth Your Money?

Posted on: September 17th, 2012 by admin No Comments

The Rubicon is known for its extreme rock crawling ability. One of the reasons is its highly rated Rock-Trac System.

Due to its 4:1 low-gear ratio, Rock-Track delivers massive amounts of torque to go up and down sharp inclines as well as crawl over big obstacles such as rocks. It boasts a 73.1:1 crawl ratio with manual transmission that makes it easy to cruise over tough terrain.

To give you a better idea of how it works, watch the video below.

Besides rock crawling, other benefits of the Rock-Trac System include:

  • 4H position – Excellent option for snowy road conditions.
  • Neutral position – Great if you want to two your Jeep.

So is the Rock-Trac System right for you?

To answer this question, you need to think about your off-roading. In particular think about the terrain. If you’re often off-roading in rocky areas, the Rubicon and its Rock-Trac System is an excellent option.

However, if you’re more into mudding, this system may be a little overkill. You might want to consider a Jeep with Command-Trac. This is a very good four-wheel drive system found on the Wrangler Sport, Sport S, Sahara and Freedom editions.
