  1. Sway Bar Quick Disconnect Recommendations?

    Jason, Just the luck of the draw I suppose. I didn't have to grind on anything. All the brackets just fit. If you did have to grind, did everything come out flush and smooth? Maybe your noise is from some flex or bend on the bracket??? Stupid question but how about greasing the zerk...
  2. Choices! 35s, Lift, or Winch?

    Zak, Although your advice and reasoning is about as sound as it comes I did the opposite, but for an entitely different reason. I joined a very good and reputable Jeeping club in the Denver area with my bone stock sport. However, living in Colorado they made it very clear that most trails...
  3. Airing Up/Down stock tires

    Tim, I concur with all the above. The battery connected compressor seems the best for me. However the 7-pin Tow Connector may have some merit if you are more comfortable with a plug-in solution. As far as the ESS functionality is concerned, there is an impact. My ESS generally indicates...
  4. Sway Bar Quick Disconnect Recommendations?

    Mike, Not the parking brake, the Teraflex Quick Disconnect Kit Parking stud. The stud thad holds the link out of the way so that you don't have to Zip Tie anything. I grease both the top (parking) stud (for when the link is disconnected) and the lower Sway-Bar Link stud (for when it is...
  5. Sway Bar Quick Disconnect Recommendations?

    Mike, I second your statement. I have no noise and zero play as well. I experience nothing of what @JWAustinVTX has described. My Teraflex kit has been a real sound investment. It has dramatically improved my off-road capability. I do grease my parking and link studs regularly. Do you? Jay
  6. Airing Up/Down stock tires

    Tim, There are quite a lot of options for airing up tires. Anything from permanently mounted on-board compressors to CO2 Air tanks and a boatload of options in-between. The on-board compressors are great for convenience and the CO2 tanks are the quickest and as always each have their pros and...
  7. Quick disconnect for sway bars

    Sorry to hear. However that's not been my experience at all. My ONLY issue is the need to sometimes use a pry bar to reconnect them on level ground. I'm still experimenting with level vs right or left side slightly higher. Otherwise no issue whatsoever after installation. No noise and...
  8. JL Sport S Off Road Capable Daily Driver Budget Build

    Sebastian, I believe the mountain pass you are asking about is not really a pass but rather is the veiw of Mt. Lincoln from Wheeler Lake at 12,175 ft, just west of Alma CO. Mt. Lincoln in the picture is at 14,293 ft. However, there are other mountain passes in my pics as well. Wise Mountain...
  9. Why Not A Rubicon?

    @FrostySerb, I clearly did not intend to knock Rubicon's in any way. They are far superior trail machines in every metric when compared to nearly anything else. My budget at the time of purchase was only around $30K. So (for me) a JL Rubicon was not feasible. The options were a used JKR or...
  10. My ESS has more excuses than my 8 year old

    Brad, @COBill is spot on. This is not FCA's or any ICE manufacturers fault. It is just an intermediate (desperate) step to try and stave off the total demise of the ICE powerplant altogether. Car companies when not meeting the mandated (fleet wide) emissions limits as set by federal...
  11. JLU Bright White.

    Enrique, You will discover that your rig is more capable than you think it is (as is). Upgrading to 35s, if you decide to go that way, will make your JL almost unstoppable anywhere you care to point it. These Wranglers are pretty amazing machines. Lift, larger rubber and sway-bar link...
  12. JLU Bright White.

    Enrique, I totally agree with @dpike. Take your build in steps as you can afford them. I couldn't afford everything at once. It had taken me about 9 months to cobble all of my build together (so far). I did the build in somewhat of a priority order where my budget typically determined the...
  13. 4xe’s 2.0L engine different from 2.0L gas JL’s engine?

    Again, refer to this diagram. It's the component marked 'P2'. For the 4xe only the two marked P1F (mild hybrid) and P2 (main electric motor). All the others are concept and not applied to the 4xe offering (yet).
  14. JLU Bright White.

    Enrique, It's easier than you think. With a large enough wallet, the sky is the limit. For me unfortunately that isn't the case. I knew what I wanted but had just above a minimalist's budget. I wanted about as off-road capable of a Sport as I could get without breaking the bank. It also...
  15. 4xe’s 2.0L engine different from 2.0L gas JL’s engine?

    @PyrPatriot, The 4xe has two electric motors. The first is the belt driven electric motor on the front of the 2.0L engine. This is essentially the same as the current mild hybrid. It provides start movement assist at low speeds. The second is the new motor marked as 'P2' in the diagram from...
  16. 4xe’s 2.0L engine different from 2.0L gas JL’s engine?

    @PyrPatriot, The acronym 'PHEV' simply stands for "Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle". The primary difference between it and a standard hybrid is that it can have it's main battery charged remotely via a 'Plug-in outlet' rather than just from its on-board internal combustion (ICE) power plant...
  17. My Dog DEFINITELY prefers JEEP

    Yep. She now expects and enjoys the extra assist. Too bad I didn't get this JL when she was a pup. Total Jeeping pooch once she's on-board. Wonderful co-pilot for sure. Jay
  18. My Dog DEFINITELY prefers JEEP

    Mark, Cool story. They say dogs have a great sense of character. However my aging Aussie's not a big fan. Don't get me wrong she loves riding around in it. The jumping up into it is the problem. Jay
  19. STOP ORDER on all Manual Jeeps [Update: software flash fix arrives in March]

    These threads are for sharing stories and helping fellow Jeepers independent of whether or not you wear diapers. Manual transmissions are WONDERFUL when implemented properly. Unfortunately FCA has utterly turned their latest few model year JL- MT6 transmission executions into an unqualified...
