  1. Wrong Steering Gear Installed for TSB 08-074-20

    Did you set up this appointment a while ago? They either ordered the part or it was allocated to the dealership. I got the new gear and alignment. It drives beautifully. Even my wife noticed it's improved driveability
  2. New JL Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    If it were the 3.8. I would ask "how many miles do you drive between oil changes?", that number would fluctuate a lot.
  3. 2 Door Roof Rack Options

    No, they still need to finish the R&D. For example, I can't take my freedom tops off because they used existing roof brackets from either the 4 door or Gladiator (to do so, I need to takeoff the front wind deflector <only my rack will be like this obviously>). So they have to redesign that...
  4. Rowher Flats trail Sunday 1/3121

    The initial climb up from san fransisquito is fun. Then cut all the way across to Rower... that a good day. Also to start from old ridge road/ tempting hwy is a good snow run.
  5. Interesting evolution of engine breaking

    So the "transmission coasting" between shifts, was an issue I had with my 2015 Cherokee. It was soo bad that it became an issue, resulting in me trading it in and having to sell my old wrangler too as equity to get out of that new car. I also have the 2.0. What I do is put it into manual mode...
  6. Picked Up my 2021 Willy’s...

    Wiring can seem intimidating but I would have to assume Mopar would have a wiring breakdown for dealer installs. I have found most people do not know how to operate outside of their training. I work in the elevator trade and have come across a fair share of "one trick ponies".
  7. New JL Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    Just got home from a couple hundred mile drive. (Steering gear was replaced on thursday). It is a night and day difference on the road; it drives like a dream. Even with a lift and 37" tires, wandering is gone and bumpsteer (and wind drift) seems to no longer "push" the jeep. Dealerships...
  8. 20k recommended cabin filter change, no way!

    People pay good money to live in that filthy air, don't throw it out. That's good stuff.
  9. I hate Adaptive Cruise and Early Collision Warning - can they be disabled?

    Mu Subaru has over 50 buttons between the dash and the steering wheel. My JL isn't far behind and probably more considering the touch screen. I'm I'm tech baby born in 1980 and only now with the newer vehicles do I feel a tad overwhelmed by all this tech. But that's what the forums are for...
  10. 2 door ver. 4 door

    2 Dr rear seat is removable. You can store a bunch of stuff, enough for a 2 person long term camping trip. With the top off, it almost has a mini truck vibe. My 2011JK was the 4dr. This time I wanted more of an old school vibe. Now I have a 2dr Rubicon with the 2.0l. I love it and don't miss...
  11. Steering issues cured by installing new Steering gear box! (per TSB 08-074-20)

    I was told by my dealer in California that Jeep had a shutdown on parts fulfillment ufrom the end of December to the 14th of Jan. My part came in around the 18th and I have an appointment on the 27th. It really is a shame that the front end of the Jeep brand experience is the dealership because...
  12. 4LO Power

    Hold the brakes as you build up your rpms. This will help with boost. Drive two footed. It helps. I have performance mods, they help too. Lol
  13. The dirty underbelly of off-roading

    Or being a coyote and smuggling undocumented immigrants across the border.
  14. Reid Racing Steering knuckles

    I had these on my old JK. I loved that it corrected for high clearance tie rod. I also had RCV shafts. There's some lady driving around with my old JKU that has a beefy front end. At least I have the peace of mind knowing she is set.
  15. Rear locker only?

    should have always been a factory option. But honestly, they want you to buy the Rubicon. Or they want you to buy Mopar aftermarket.
  16. Jeep TRUE off-road ruggedized version (base)

    i got clear 3M on my touch screen. When it comes to wear and tear, i figure almost everything on these new vehicles is plastic and clip in, I'll just buy replacement parts if they get too worn out. In all honesty, I find the value for the respective increase in cost for the new generation JL...
  17. Tazer JL - 3rd brake light pulse feature

    Always be compliant with state laws. You still have two regular brake lights, so even if your 3rd brake light doesn't work, you meet the minimum requirements to be street legal. I would like to have an officer convince me that an early warning braking system is less safe. Also, no cop is going...
  18. Additional HP?

    The easiest thing to do is to regear. It will more effectively use the power your vehicle already has. Oh and get a Pedal Command. They seriously work
  19. Steering issues cured by installing new Steering gear box! (per TSB 08-074-20)

    I hate my dealership. I want nothing to do with them. its soo bad that i drive my Wrangler in an (unsafe condition) because i dont want them to touch my Wrangler. I know they will give me crap about having larger tires, and aftermarket track bar, etc. I'm thinking about just buying the damn...
