Does the RUDICON NEED a new MOTOR?

Dipublikasikan tanggal 21 Mei 2022
The RUDICON can’t make it home, so we pick it up with a tow truck. Then we need to solve the bigger problem…

Don’t forget to check out @Robby Layton and see what he’s up to!

  • I vote absolutely yes to a rat rod build you will love it and with your skill it will be the ultimate off-road on road vehicle!!

    • Robby wants a rat rod build because he doesn't want to have to paint it. 😂

    • Robby Layton whats up with the brown COE cabover sitting in the back lot.

    • Hey Robby, why not let him build out that COE that was parked behind the Split? ~5:08 Make an awesome crawler hauler. IJS

    • He needs an LS right Robby!!! lol

    • Robby, I want a chip of that gold paint!

  • Trevor deserves way more props on both channels.

    • Absolutely!

    • @Lessco Brandon LOL

    • @Kevin Walters Randy was a slug compared to Trevor.

    • @Doug you must have never seen Randy in the wild go back and look at some of the older videos with some of the old crew LOL

  • Trevor and Rudy together again at last! Trevors quiet excitement when he hears he's going on an adventure with Rudy 😊

    • But where was the weather report?

  • Rudy for what it’s worth I miss you on your dads channel but it’s great to see that you have the ambition to go at it on your own. You are very fortunate to have Matt for your dad. Good luck to you going forward.

    • *18+ Content* Cloveer.Monster mejores 😘 siempre en mi corazón mañas no se la.💟 Son unos de los mejores conciertos..

  • If your up for the ratrod build I'd say go for it. I think it would be a fun build to watch. Also nice job with the new channel so far Rudy, I enjoy popping over here right after checking out your dad's latest video.

    • *18+ Content* Cloveer.Monster mejores 😘 siempre en mi corazón mañas no se la.💟 Son unos de los mejores conciertos.

  • Trevor and Rudi, couple of really good guys!

    • *18+ Content* Cloveer.Monster mejores 😘 siempre en mi corazón mañas no se la.💟 Son unos de los mejores conciertos.

    • Couple of BEST guys, you mean! ;)

  • I love how Otis just lays next to the running forklift, he just doesn’t care, my dog would be terrified of it 😂

    • 🎼🎶Don't want to play. 🎶In the way. 🎶Otis ain't worried 'bout nuthin. 🎶

  • Those straight six jeep motors are nearly impossible to kill/seize. Yeah, it might drop a cylinder (or three!), but they will cool down and continue to chug along.

    • @Rx7man We we’re replacing one for a friend at my old shop as “after hours project” (AKA: beer payment job). It was “sharing” compression between 2 (maybe 3!) pistons. Wanted to send it out with a bang and bricked the gas pedal. 20 min later it was running. Drained oil and coolant, bricked the pedal again at well past redline. 30-40 minutes later we gave up trying to kill it. Tough hombres.

    • I worked on one that ran out of coolant, had a bad miss..OK< take the spark plugs out, 1 was filled with aluminum, look inside and see the top of the connecting rod, biiig hole in the top of the piston! kinda wondering if something similar didn't happen to the rudicon, or a blown head gasket between 2 cylinders

    • @Taylor Forster yep, the old Rambler engine !!

    • *18+ Content* Cloveer.Monster mejores 😘 siempre en mi corazón mañas no se la.💟 Son unos de los mejores conciertos.

    • Its gotta be the 4 litre though. They made pretty decent torque too

  • I love how the dog doesn't move when the forklift is right next to him. He's like, "I'm not going anywhere".

  • Well, how in the H*ll did I miss this? I never caught on not even once! That he was your DAD! My father always tells me sometimes are u brain dead. I would have to agree with my Pawa now!

    • Are you pulling everybody's leg or are you just that slow sorry I didn't mean to insult you but you've got to be kidding

    • I don't know. It's mentioned many times @ MORR.

  • 1st, can’t wait to see what you have in store for “Old Rusty Cars” 2nd, glad your jeep wasn’t pillaged by scavengers & 3rd, would have been hilarious to see ID-tvrs from the area tag Rudicon with they’re stickers. Love watching all the “Good Clean Fun” you guys have.

    • *18+ Content* Cloveer.Monster mejores 😘 siempre en mi corazón mañas no se la.💟 Son unos de los mejores conciertos.

  • So happy to see your channel going strong, Rudy! Looks like a lift is needed in your future! Especially if the rat rock is coming home!

    • *18+ Content* Cloveer.Monster mejores 😘 siempre en mi corazón mañas no se la.💟 Son unos de los mejores conciertos.

  • 3:40 I like this kind of episode, It answers the question "Why can their truck do so much hard work, as compared to my stock Jeep or Truck" ... Because when they breakdown, they are constantly upgraded and strengthened" :)

    • *18+ Content* Cloveer.Monster mejores 😘 siempre en mi corazón mañas no se la.💟 Son unos de los mejores conciertos.

    • Yuppers, tho my current zj with the 5.2 & 249transfercase, still basically stock, only have a 4inch lift, longarm, & 31so far, there are definitely going to be opportunities for upgrading in the future, tho even that's gonna take a while due to low(for me anyways) miles on it, only 255k, and the other 3 zj had with the 4.0 all went 455-500k miles, before succumbed to rust in wis, but that's not an issue here in texas

  • Keep up with the good work bud ......liking what I'm seeing.......also that rat rod would be insane.....but it would cost you alot of favors at this point in your adventures.....just my opinion......lots of other interesting things your capable of bud .......just give her hell what ever you decide man.....I'm excited for you!

    • *18+ Content* Cloveer.Monster mejores 😘 siempre en mi corazón mañas no se la.💟 Son unos de los mejores conciertos.

  • Rat rod project looks awesome!

  • As a non-gearhead that just likes watching your channel and Matt's it's fun to see how all you car guys help each other out. Good luck with getting the Rudicon back in action.

  • Don't do the engine swap. Those particular years of the 4.0L engine have a weakness in the heads -- they crack, which is probably what happened to the Rudicon. There's a company that sells a much better replacement head -- put that on the Rudicon's original block and go to town. While you're at it, swap out the cam for an RV cam with more low-end torque.

  • Hey Rudy, thanks for the shout out! Glad I could tag a sticker on you while I was out in Hurricane, hopefully my XJ can keep up with yours some day 🤘🏻

  • Love your content, Rudy! Always worth the wait!

    • *18+ Content* Cloveer.Monster mejores 😘 siempre en mi corazón mañas no se la.💟 Son unos de los mejores conciertos..

  • I vote yes on the all-terrain rat rod!👍

  • YES ! Build a sweet Rat Rod 4wd out of that old car , you will never regret it and those who see it on the road and trails will never forget it !

    • @doug field ID-tv will happily dedicate time/resources to censorship, but the naughty bots are allowed to run amok.

    • that cracks me up , you wrote word for word what I did 10 hours ago , I got 4 thumbs up and in one hour you have 21 thumbs up ! that's funny !

  • Ratrod would be cool, IDK why but I get emotionally invested in all of the builds you, your dad, robby, and paul do. So If you do that I'll watch every episode.

  • Rudy, while its out at least flip the engine over and put fresh bearings in the bottom end. Maybe a new oil pump as well. That'll keep it going for awhile longer.

    • YES ! Build a sweet Rat Rod 4wd out of that old car , you will never regret it and those who see it on the road and trails will never forget it !

  • I should also say that I admire your mechanical and fabrication skills. Really enjoy your videos.

  • Well done Rudy! A Rat Rod project would be a lot of fun and very interesting for us viewers!

  • I’d love to see you do a build with that old 4 door

    • *18+ Content* Cloveer.Monster mejores 😘 siempre en mi corazón mañas no se la.💟 Son unos de los mejores conciertos.

  • Nothing screams LS like a blown up 4.0 straight six. Go for it Rudy, the Rud-I-con needs an LS and your the man for the job. You know you want one and that Jeep deservers one. Just do it.

    • ​@Andrew Martin I see where you are coming from, would be a cool swap indeed. Just not sure itd last as long or be so easily upgraded for more power should he ever want it

    • @Ed Zimdahl The LS is nearly a bolt in, it weighs less and it's just a better plant compared to the 4.0. If this Jeep were in pristine condition I would say leave it alone. This thing is hardly show room quality and transplanting to a better plant is hardly blasphemy. Rudy is the right guy for the project with the right vehicle.

    • @Joseph P hard saying anything to those running wild with whatever they've been brainwashed into whatever the latest greatest that everyone should be putting in everything, I've put buick 350 & 455 in a couple non buick vehicles and a few other unconventional swaps, just from what I know and have done thinking at least keep with its lineage,

    • @Joseph P I'm not talking about the results of an LS swap, but the swap process itself. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt... Aside from that, I like keeping to the same manufacturer - as someone else commented, I think a 4.8L from a Grand Cherokee would be more interesting.

    • @Ed Zimdahl Because chrysler offers a motor comparable to a ls lol

  • Man you should absolutely build a rock crawling, dune running, sand rat rod. That would be so cool.

  • I am impressed how much dedication Rudy has to his beautiful Jeep!

    • *18+ Content* Cloveer.Monster mejores 😘 siempre en mi corazón mañas no se la.💟 Son unos de los mejores conciertos.

  • I’d love to see you do a build with that old 4 door

  • I seen you there in Robby's video a week or so ago. I was thinking then, it would be cool to see you build a rat rod, capable of rock climbing.

    • *18+ Content* Cloveer.Monster mejores 😘 siempre en mi corazón mañas no se la.💟 Son unos de los mejores conciertos.

  • Yeah go for it ,that body should make an awesome Ratrod. Can't wait to see the build !!

  • Cant wait to see you getting started on this on/off Rat :-) More vids please!

  • Great video, offically today i have decided a telehander is in my future i keep seeing them and they are so capable of moving crap around or a hi-ab but i can dream of those and 4wd haha

  • Robbie is such a genuine dude.

  • I’m with @Robby Layton, you should definitely build a rat rod.

  • Rudi, your a lucky guy with all the support you got. If you have the space, time, and money it would be fun for your channel to cover. A rat rod has to stand out, so it lot of planning to get all of the interesting details to work together. Just a thought, have you considered having the Rudicon wrapped instead of paint? Might be a good time for something like that when the engine is down.

    • *18+ Content* Cloveer.Monster mejores 😘 siempre en mi corazón mañas no se la.💟 Son unos de los mejores conciertos.

  • Ned to get a good reliable motor in the Rudicon so you can get to where you're going! Looks like some potential Rat Rods in Robby's yard!

    • Spam bot, don't interact

  • It's not the same with out you on the MORR channel. Glad to see you're doing well on your new path.

  • I see that vehicle sitting on 40’s maybe even 48’s! Tube cage coming out the front around the engine, cage inside the body, and buggy the heck out of it! That would be SO cool on the trails.

  • Sounds like you broke a valve spring Rudy. Pretty easy fix. God bless

  • Yes, a rat rod build would be awesome to see on this channel!

  • I am impressed how much dedication Rudy has to his beautiful Jeep!

  • Cant wait to see you getting started on this on/off Rat :-) More vids please!

  • I wanna see Rudy install a ZZ632 crate engine in his Rudicon, along with a SuperMatic 4L75R Four Speed! As far as a transfer case is concerned - I have no clue... Just wanna see it to be the biggest, baddest off-roader compared to all the other similarly-connected ID-tv channels. Hey...??? Did you get a plague already for 100K? Must've missed that. :/

  • Rudy about to try to fly a disk to the dumpster, “Do you think I can make it?” To voice of reason behind the camera, “No”.

    • @uci🌷 SPAM POS

    • *18+ Content* Cloveer.Monster mejores 😘 siempre en mi corazón mañas no se la.💟 Son unos de los mejores conciertos.

  • I would love to see a rock crawling rat rod.

  • Would love to see you build something with the rat rod body

  • I love how when it’s time to borrow the tow truck it’s Dad instead of Matt, lol.

  • Rudy, your channel is gonna be great. keep working at it!

  • I vote absolutely yes to a rat rod build you will love it and with your skill it will be the ultimate off-road on road vehicle!!

  • I think an off-road rat rod would be awesome

  • Build an off road rat Rod! That would awesome!

  • definitely build a cool 4x4 rat rod

  • Rudy, while its out at least flip the engine over and put fresh bearings in the bottom end. Maybe a new oil pump as well. That'll keep it going for awhile longer.

  • Yes to a rat rod. Can’t wait to see you build it. It will be awesome. 👍👍👍👍🌟

  • Hello, I just want to suggest using some audio compression/limiter to limit the difference in volumes from one clip to the next. You might be able to do it on your current editing software. Parts of this vid I needed to turn the volume up then nec min im getting blasted.

  • Rat rods are awesome to see sounds like a fun build

  • I’m with Robby. Build a rat rod. He knows stuff, lots of stuff. I wish I knew just what he’s forgot. Of course the MORR family knows that and I’m preaching to the choir. Good luck on the engine. It will be interesting work.

  • Definitely think you need to do a cool project. You don't by any chance own the corvair pick up that is in your dad's lot do you? Perfect rig. Make it mid engine.

  • Not trying to put too many dumb ideas out there, but the Jeep 4.7l V8 fits really nice and in bone stock form, the H.O. version makes more power and torque than almost all of the stroker 4.0 straight-6 motors. Fit an electric fan instead of the goofy hydraulic setup Daimler used and have a 545RFE from a Grand Cherokee rebuilt and she'll be rock solid.

    • *18+ Content* Cloveer.Monster mejores 😘 siempre en mi corazón mañas no se la.💟 Son unos de los mejores conciertos..

  • Instead of just swapping the banana split motor in as is, rebuild it first, eliminate future problems!

  • Nice to see another vid posted Rudy! And always enjoy the crossovers with MORR & Robby! ❤️from 🇨🇦

  • Yes to a rat rod! That would be awesome to see!!

  • I think a rat rod 4x4 would be a worthy project. 👍

  • It would be an epic project to see the rat rod!

    • *18+ Content* Cloveer.Monster mejores 😘 siempre en mi corazón mañas no se la.💟 Son unos de los mejores conciertos..

  • Maybe an extended rail rod would be cool.

  • I always wanted to make a 4x4 out of a 30s vehicle... do it rudy! Might need to stretch it a little those old rigs are tight inside.

  • Hell yeah build it ! It's good to know your doing well.

  • I would watch you build anything. You are gifted at building and fixing things. Love the channel!

  • Yes please and thank you for the rat rod crawler build! 🤙🏻 Or whatever rat rod creation you dream up.

  • Super nice cage dude. Might wanna add another upright tying rack to sliders behind the rear side of the passenger door to keep your head round if you roll.

  • If the metal is still good, definitely get it and put a xj motor in it

  • Don't you love when a plan comes together? "I'll just pick up the front end and drive the trailer out from under it." "Dad can I borrow the keys to the wrecker?"

    • *18+ Content* Cloveer.Monster mejores 😘 siempre en mi corazón mañas no se la.💟 Son unos de los mejores conciertos.

  • Yes to the rat rod, Rudy. It would be a killer project to follow. Call it Triple-R for Rudy's Rat Rod or some such. With a stonking great Chevy engine, of course!

  • Rudy yes do the old rod build. Would be awesome!👍👍👍 good content. You need a set of keys to hide in case you loose the keys you have as a spare! 😃🤣

  • That would be an awesome project and bring some great content for your channel

  • As soon as you turned over the Rudicon, I could tell it was down on at least one cylinder. If it the compression is down on two adjoining cylinders, you may have only just blown a head gasket between the cylinders. That is common on an overheat. Do yourself a favor and have the other head rebuilt before installing it, if you decide to do so.

  • Robby kind of love you and Matt. Liked learning about Robby's new shop, after a fire? That had to be terrible.

  • This could have been a wonderful Matt's Offroad recovery episode.

  • I would love to see a rat rod rock crawler. The one Robby was willing to give up looked way to far gone. You can find something else to start with.

  • wish I lived closer , I would stop in and give you a hand . Love your channel , Rudy . Rat rod rock crawler would be cool , If your building it it would be a winner . Take care , stay safe . Terry

  • Yes you need a ratrod, the banana split keeps on givin great video Rudy 😉👍

  • Wow. That tow truck looks brand spanking new. Always good to see Robbie and his crew (and Trevor!).

  • Rat rod would be a cool build! Keep up the great work. 💪🏼👍🏼🇺🇸

  • Turn the split into a sweet off-road camping trailer!

  • If you're going to build a rattie, make it 4x and send it silly on the trails

  • Time for a stroker motor. Or maybe the new inline 6 that they are coming out with.

  • Trevor deserves way more props on both channels.

  • I say build a rat rail buggy for the dunes you already have a nice rock crawler, you need a go fast buggy for the sand.

    • *18+ Content* Cloveer.Monster mejores 😘 siempre en mi corazón mañas no se la.💟 Son unos de los mejores conciertos..

  • Would be neat to see you branch out and get on a build on your own and do something different... Definitely should build a rat rod!

  • Absolutely build it. I'll watch every episode. Do it Rudy!!

  • You should build what you want to build. I think I'd watch regardless of what project it is. I do hope we see more content soon.

  • Having a Rudy channel makes it twice as good!

  • YES ! Build a sweet Rat Rod 4wd out of that old car , you will never regret it and those who see it on the road and trails will never forget it !

    • *18+ Content* Cloveer.Monster mejores 😘 siempre en mi corazón mañas no se la.💟 Son unos de los mejores conciertos.

  • A Rat-rod sandrail creation would be awesome!! DO IT!! 😁👍👍👍

  • That will be great to see that you build some out of that rat rod

  • I sympathize with you having cooked your engine. It happened to my pickup, but when I asked my father to hook up and tow me home, he decided that, without the diagnostic skills of a professional mechanic, it was the starter that was bad and he needed to crawl under and beat the starter with a hammer until it was smoking badly enough that someone walking by thought my pickup was going to catch fire... I was VERY glad when I bought my new-to-me wrangler that was 16 years newer, had 110,000 miles less on the odometer, and wasn't rusting apart from the salt used on the roads during the winters. I compared how much money my loan had cost me the first year, and it was less than I had to put in my pickup the year prior to keep it running.

  • Rudy, you need a crawler hauler. That COE behind the split ~5:08 would be choice.

  • Yes I would love to see you do a rat rod. You would have fun.
