  1. Anyone take the T50 door bolts out and leave them out?

    I installed some threaded pins to replace the bolts. Make it easy to lift the doors on and off the hinges. My door bolts are permanently stored in the back of the Jeep.
  2. How to drive in snow and ice, for dummies...

    @Stormin’ Moorman don't listen to this advice. If there is a bride on the side of the road, by all means pick her up. If you already have a wife, you need to break the bad news gently. There is one caveat, if the bride on the side of the road looks like Fred .... do not stop. Remember that other...
  3. In your opinion, WHAT MAKES THE JEEP WRANGLER SO GREAT?!!

    I live in Southern Arizona and aside from ~10 days there is no reason I can't drive with the top and doors off .... well one, my wife isn't the biggest fan of the blowing air. Of course, as a dutiful husband I do put the doors every once in a while when it gets a little chillier. I love the top...
  4. In your opinion, WHAT MAKES THE JEEP WRANGLER SO GREAT?!!

    I doubt any Jeep could have the number of problems some of my earlier girlfriends had. I am pretty sure my first in the California Penal system, but have no evidence.
  5. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    I have no worries about that. I will replace the clutch and pressure plate with the Centerforce when it needs replacement. I do find it interesting that Centerforce is reworking their offering based on issues early adopters appear to have had. Ultimately the best option is Jeep does a thorough...
  6. Any recommended dealers in the Dallas area for order/purchase?

    Use the Wrangler Deals website to find dealers across the country that offer up to 8% below invoice.
  7. Land Cruiser > Jeep :-O !!!

    Only a coin tray on Rubicons with leather. Cloth got the cup holders.
  8. Land Cruiser > Jeep :-O !!!

    I always default to the Rubicon based on the theory I would rather have it and not need it versus I don't have it, but sure wish I had it right now. Resell value is one aspect. Please look at the Wrangler Deals website and you may be able to save so much that the decision is far easier and...
  9. GMRS Channel

    I started running with a couple local Jeep off-road groups down by me and they are making the transition to GMRS. Channel 15 seems to be pretty popular down here. I got my GMRS license from the FCC ($70 for 10 years) just to cover myself and use a Boafeng BF-8HP handheld with 8 watts max...
  10. Should I build a Wrangler or hold out for the right used JL? Should I even BUY a Wrangler?

    I went with a Rubicon and outside of adding some skid plates it is completely stock. It is crazy just how easily these vehicles tackle terrain that other vehicles would dribble oil from their pan when they saw it. Don't feel beholden to any dealer. It is your money and they have to earn your...
  11. Should I build a Wrangler or hold out for the right used JL? Should I even BUY a Wrangler?

    @Blue Ridge, first let me say you are taking the same path I did. I joined this forum exactly 362 days before I picked up my 2019 JLUR from the dealer in Idaho that I ordered. I used the Wrangler Deals website to find dealers near me (relatively) to find a great deal. My local dealer would only...
  12. Jeep Ducking (Duck Duck Jeep)

    That is where mine ride too. I actually look at them when I experience drivers who are less than courteous or outright asshats. I always think that poor bastard probably didn't get ducked! The best part for me of the whole ducking movement is the excitement my kids get when it happens, and I...
  13. '21 Manual "accelerates" hard on its own in 1st & 2nd w/0 throttle

    I will have to look for the maintaining revs when shifting setting. I noticed that the engine revs freely and it took a little time to synchronize my shifts to let off the throttle immediately before engaging the clutch pedal. I have heard of other posters mentioning that Tazer may be able to...
  14. CONSUMER REPORTS and Gladiators and Wranglers.

    I owned 4 Honda's and although pedestrian and vanilla, they were phenomenally reliable machines. I bought a Subaru and although a decent vehicle, it has had more mechanical issues than all four Honda's combined. My wife has a Kia Sedona and I have been thoroughly impressed with its build quality...
  15. Recall Notice 21V-028 [1/28/21]: Manual Transmission / Clutch Overheat Covers All 2018-2021 Jeep Wranglers Produced by January 22, 2021

    I have learned never to ask anyone to correct me if I am insane. They always think I am. In another thread the idea was proposed that the software fix is a band-aid to allow Jeep engineers to complete a more thorough analysis and develop a final solution that may involve replacing the clutch...
  16. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    I have just over 40,000 miles on my JLUR in a bit over 18 months of ownership. I towed a 5'x10' enclosed U-Haul from Arizona to California on interstate 8 and that involves a couple 4000' climbs and on one section an approximate 8% grade. I was in third gear pulling the trailer (empty) and...
  17. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    The yearly inspections of vehicles is new to me and I only found out about when a buddy took his Tundra into the Massachusetts inspection and his muffler was loose. He was actually not supposed to drive it on the road. He got a local shop to weld the issue for $80. Living in Arizona I see...
  18. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    I view the warranty and an extended warranty as insurance in case something goes horribly wrong. I have taken my Jeep to the dealer for two items; 1. the sleeve add-on (I never had a single issue with my clutch) and 2. the steering TSB, which I am happier about every day I drive my Jeep. That...
