got a 2003 rubicon 500. the carb is flooding bad. it is pouring gas into the airbox. any suggestion on what the problem might be or how to fix it.

Running when filling the air box or sitting?

Sounds like a stuck float.Take the bowl off the bottom of the carb and spray some good carb cleaner in and around the float make sure it moves freely.

Does the float feel like it had fluid in it? might be a bad float.
