  1. 3.0L EcoDiesel JL Engine Replacement at 3300 miles due to manufacturing defect

    As much as we would all like tesla to make other dealers better, I just can't see it happening until any owner can call tesla from any state for any vin and get even so much as a lug nut cover ordered. I'm next to a dealer, wouldn't be opposed to having one for in town cause there is lots of...
  2. Will the 2 Door Rubican get the Diesel or Hemi ?

    I'd say the answer is no. And someone touched on the real reason above. Manufacturing lack of demand to discontinue a line. By putting the desirable engines in the 4 doors they continue to push people to the 4 door that otherwise would have bought a 2 door. Then as FCA and the company they...
  3. Which engine for Colorado passes?

    Granted mine was a 2017 jk rubicon recon but I hated my two door going up the ike gauntlet. Above about 9000 feet 5th and 6th gears were just worthless accessories. Going to aspen there were places that the Jeep wouldn't even maintain speed in 5th on a realtiveley flat surface. Always sounded...
  4. Have to add rock track now?

    I think many are more disappointed that it doesn't have the 4:1 low gear. I'd like to know the transfer case number so I can lookup whether it's a clutch pack, center diff, or what. I'd be leery of it if it's the same transfer case the ram 1500 laramie a have had for the last few years. Those...
  5. Have to add rock track now?

    I believe this is the case, but I don't understand why when the diesel is only 30ish ft lb away from the 392 and has the rocktrac. That's a boatload more torque on the axels from the diesel with the 4:1 transfer case vs the goofy one going into the 392. The only thing I can figure is like the...
  6. 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 V8 - Specs, Wallpapers, Videos!

    Heard many things about the sound of a v8. Never heard of someone being embarrassed. Who is that!? Can we ban them to europe to hang out with the sub 3 litre engine mandate over there? Unless you are just talking about pure volume waking up neighbors. In that case I get it. FCA has been pretty...
  7. 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 V8 - Specs, Wallpapers, Videos!

    No two door, full time 4wd, half the final ratio of normal rubicon. Gets a solid meh from me. Wake me up when Jeep quits ignoring the 2 door and or actually starts listening. Looks like a half hearted attempt to me.
  8. Update: Reveal Coming Nov 17 @ 12PM ET! Production 392 Hemi V8 Jeep Wrangler Officially Teased!

    For those saying the manual won't happen if the diesel didn't get one. You are probably correct. That said between the two the hemi is much more likely. It doesn't have emissions issues and an over the top emissions system to deal with when a person romps on the throttle. Nor does it have a...
  9. Update: Reveal Coming Nov 17 @ 12PM ET! Production 392 Hemi V8 Jeep Wrangler Officially Teased!

    I'll follow through on my promise to buy just as soon as they confirm it can be had in a two door. But alas jeeps discrimination against the smaller father of the unlimited will continue.
  10. Exhaust System Regeneration?

    EPA essentially is Carb at this point. Epa has bent over backwards to allow their bs rules so much and so many states have fallen all over themselves to follow their rules. At this point EPA basically waits for carb to make new rules then just implements them.
  11. Exhaust System Regeneration Message

    One thing I didn't see in your driving style section that will greatly contribute to more often regens is how you normally accelerate. Especially when the engine is cold. Romping on the accelerator at every stop is a sure fire way to fill a dpf. Even more so when the engine and fuel is cold...
  12. Exhaust System Regeneration?

    The guy above me is correct. Shutting down during a regen is okay if not done often or somewhere that flammable material might be under the vehicle like long dry grass. You just don't want to do it often that and many short drives are where problems start
  13. diesel clatter

    Ha, the ecodiesel just purrs its not loud at all. My old 12 valve. Now that's a loud diesel. Even worse, an old 7.3 idi in a pre 2000 ford. That's a really loud diesel.
  14. CP4 Fuel Pump

    Yes, all the ecodiesels used that pump. However, injector pump failure on them seems to be minimal for whatever reason compared to Powerstrokes and the Duramaxes. Heck Cummins even adopted it in 2019. Which is why I didn't get a 2019 Ram 2500. (that and i still cant get the dial a gear in a...
  15. Repercussions of regeneration?

    TL;DR regens are not a bad thing. Follow what your evic says and treat the diesel with common sense that it needs to get up to proper operating temp weekly and you will be fine. Ignore messages only take short trips, and you will be in the shop before long. I'll try to make this a clear as...
  16. Exhaust System Regeneration?

    To clarify, this is only an issue on engines that inject the cylinder during the exhaust stroke. Some of these emissions systems have an additional injector on the actual exhaust downpipe that injects diesel after the engine to avoid this. Has anyone checked or verified if the system on the...
  17. Jeep Wrangler 4xe Hybrid Revealed With 50 MPG-E, 375 Horsepower/470 LB-FT Torque!

    With all the companies bringing out electric trucks and suvs, I have to say the performance specs on this dissapoint me a bit. I mean we have hummer talking dropping 1000hp electric suv, all the trucks coming seem to be squarely in the 650-800hp range. Wrangler though. Eh how about 375?
  18. What is the worst dealer behavior that you've observed?

    Was all set to buy a blue streak power wagon but missed the order cutoff so I had to find one in stock somewhere and buy it. This was at the end of last year. I have weird wants, one was not to have a sunroof and after hearing the harmon larson system next to the alpine one, I wanted the 12"...
  19. Exhaust System Regeneration?

    This was almost certainly a regen. The message only comes on if the regen process has been interrupted too many times and requires one to keep the DPF from getting so bad it requires physical service. Perfectly normal. My Ram ecodiesel would do the same thing heading home down palm beach...
  20. Exhaust System Regeneration?

    Excess Idling would be more like doing a remote start 30 minutes before you leave the house. Or perhaps say the significant other drags you along shopping and you idle the jeep in the lot for more than 10-15 minutes waiting on them to come back out. Essentially idling in the drive way for just...
