  1. Automatics cuts out on inclines

    I got into a situation like that a while ago, I'm pretty sure it was the BLD that was cutting power and it really screwed me over. I was trying to climb up a steep muddy hill and the terrain was extremely sloppy and it was raining: Every time we got close to getting over the top, the BLD...
  2. My Jackery/Dometic Test Run

    I bought a 300 recently, I really like its compact size: It should have plenty of juice for an overnight trip to power my soft serve ice cream maker and automatic ceviche dispenser when I'm roughing it.
  3. Two door rough ride when offroad? How about 4 lo?

    Yes, the Wrangler will be stiffer over bumpy terrain compared to a lot of trucks in my experience. We had a 2015 Chevy Colorado on LT(C) Duratracs and it was a lot more comfy over bumpy terrain, my 2-door Willys is pretty stiff and unforgiving in stock form on rough roads. It's worth it though...
  4. Wife drove in 4L for 20 Miles at 60 miles per hour.

    Naw, the experts ruled out any possible driveline damage because a Rubicon has much greater amounts of torque in 4L so therefore you can burn rubber all day with a 2:72:1 low range on the street with no possible damage. None! :rock: :giggle:
  5. Wife drove in 4L for 20 Miles at 60 miles per hour.

    Drifters break stuff all the time, ask me how I know. When there is bind offroad, it's overcome relatively quickly usually and powering through it when you feel it happening is not something most people would recommend. Talking about the additional torque multiplication of a Rubi 4:1 as though...
  6. Wife drove in 4L for 20 Miles at 60 miles per hour.

    I am calm, nothing personal. Sorry if I offended you with my response, that wasn't my intention.
  7. Wife drove in 4L for 20 Miles at 60 miles per hour.

    How does one get on and off the freeway without turning? :movember:
  8. which air filter?

    Agreed, I'm sticking with OEM. That's not really a matter of opinion, most high flow filters do let through bigger particles. Unless you increase the size of the filter, it's difficult to design it to allow more air in and filter as efficiently.
  9. Wife drove in 4L for 20 Miles at 60 miles per hour.

    Most people never shear an axle shaft in their Jeep, period. You're talking about the type of wheeling where people don't care if they break something (where it's expected to break stuff occasionally), which is cool. It's your property, use and abuse it how you want. What I'm talking about is...
  10. Wife drove in 4L for 20 Miles at 60 miles per hour.

    Meh, we're going to have to agree to disagree on this. The difference of wheel speed on the street at higher speeds when binding occurs will cause a lot of force to be transmitted with nowhere to go, there will be a lot of stress transferred to the driveline as the wheel speeds are forced to...
  11. Which Oil Are You Using, And Why??

    I can't taste the difference.
  12. 2021 JLU vs 2020 Grand Cherokee Acceleration

    Don't forget weight, tires, and LSD: 2018 2 door Sport: 3797 lbs 2018 2 door Rubicon: 4087 lbs https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/jl-jlu-wrangler-weight-tow-capacity-max-payload-specs.1440/ That's almost 300 lbs lighter, not an insignificant amount. Plus I bet that the street...
  13. Wife drove in 4L for 20 Miles at 60 miles per hour.

    It's not virtually the same transmission, the ZF 8-speed in the Wrangler (not diesel) is rated for 500 lb-ft. The ZF 8-speed in the Demon is rated for 1000 lb-ft. I'm with you, the Jeep can probably take the abuse, but I wouldn't want someone driving my Jeep onto the freeway in 4L. 🤷‍♂️ I have...
  14. Wife drove in 4L for 20 Miles at 60 miles per hour.

    Oh really? They originally claimed 60 mph for a solid 20 miles, then later said it ‘may have’ been closer to 50 mph but they don’t know. I’d be most worried about all the stress that binding causes driving on the street going around turns, driving around a clover leaf to get on/off the freeway...
  15. Wife drove in 4L for 20 Miles at 60 miles per hour.

    Beat you to what exactly? Some guys talking about how they abused their Jeep and took it off some sweet jumps at high speed in 4L and it's not broken yet? Binding is definitely an issue on dry pavement (getting to/on the freeway), and so is overheating with high speeds. I'm not saying serious...
  16. Wife drove in 4L for 20 Miles at 60 miles per hour.

    I know, I was asking the person who claimed driving 60 mph in 4L 'probably causes no damage' why they thought that.
  17. Wife drove in 4L for 20 Miles at 60 miles per hour.

    Why does Jeep not recommend exceeding 25 mph in 4L?
  18. Top 10 things Jeep should have done

    These type of treads are a good thing if Jeep were to read it so they can see what owners want/don't like for the redesign. I get your sentiment though, but complaining isn't always a bad thing.
