  1. Which Oil Are You Using, And Why??

    I posted earlier in this thread (see post #5) and mentioned that for warranty preservation reasons, I always run 0w20 that also meets/exceeds the Chrysler MS-6395 standard. Honestly, I’ll be the first to admit I know very little about motor oil, its components and the benchmarks that...
  2. So JLURH? JLH? J392??

    In my ongoing internal monologue, I’ve been referring to it as the JL-392. I voted for J-392 though. I’ll be placing the words “the”, “your” “his/her” and “that” in front of J-392 or JL-392 or whatever it settles on when I refer to it because unfortunately I’m very unlikely to be obtaining the...
  3. Which Oil Are You Using, And Why??

    I have about 12,000 miles on my 2019 JLUR 3.6/8 speed automatic and I’m currently running the Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 0w20 with a Mopar MO-349 filter. I’ve also tried Shell Rotella Gas Truck 0w20, Motul Eco-lite 8100 0w20 and Valvoline Advanced Full Synthetic 0w20. All of the oils I’ve tried...
  4. Walmart Toyo open country m/t price mistake

    I took a chance on this as well. If it doesn’t happen no biggie but you never know... Thanks for posting this...
  5. The Jeep Wave

    I’m a big fan of the Jeep Wave. I try to wave at all passing CJs and Wranglers/Gladiators and I get a lot of waves in return. I actually really enjoy the wave and have noticed that after a successful Jeep Wave exchange I generally feel better than I did the moment before. I’ll let you armchair...
  6. 3.6L V6 24V VVT eTorque Engine vs. 3.6L V6 24V VVT Engine Upg I With Start Stop

    Please correct me if I’m wrong and I posed this question in another thread but I believe one major difference between the ESS non-eTorque 3.6 and the 48V eTorque 3.6 is that only the former can be oufitted with an aftermarket supercharger kit. Several manufacturers (Edelbrock, Magnuson, RIPP...
  7. Edelbrock Super Charger: reviews, installs, information

    I’m going the supercharger route from Edelbrock—but probably not for another couple of years when I get outside of my initial warranty period and the Jeep is fully paid for. Seems like a great way to get that added oomph without completing breaking the bank. Only well vetted products from top...
  8. What do you call a Jeep Wrangler?

    I use the terms “Jeep” and “rig” interchangeably although when in doubt I always choose “Jeep”. It’s funny because my FIL (helluva guy BTW) had an old CJ-5 back when my wife was just a kid and he enjoys telling me about the adventures he enjoyed in it. When he found out that we had joined the...
  9. Back to the Future is a Great Film But...

    Such an awesome find PA-Punkn!!! The gentleman who is allowing Marty to hitch a ride appears to be driving an Ice Blue CJ-7 in Renegade trim. What’s really nice is that beautiful Nutmeg interior with those high-back front seats. Just gorgeous...
  10. Back to the Future is a Great Film But...

    I like your reasoning and I agree (as I conceded in my OP) that the 1985 SR5 was a great choice for the film.
  11. Back to the Future is a Great Film But...

    Having just re-watched the 1985 masterpiece that is Back to the Future, one aspect of the film that generates discussion among its fans is the black 1985 Toyota SR5 pickup truck that Marty glances upon at the beginning of the film and (spoiler alert for those of you living under a rock for the...
  12. Official Lego Technic Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Model

    Jeep and Lego missed a big opportunity here given not only the small scale of the model but most glaringly is the failure of the model to capture the distinctive iconic lines and aesthetics of the JL Rubicon. My kids and I love putting together, playing with and displaying Lego builds and...
  13. Opinions, 2021 ETorque V6 vs. 2.0 turbo, worth the $1500?

    Given the relative simplicity of the non e-Torque 3.6, its developing supercharger aftermarket (Edelbrock’s 3.6 JL/JT offering has now been released along with some other manufacturer offerings that were already available) and the relatively short timeframe FCA offered the non e-Torque 3.6/8A in...
  14. Should I order the Tow Package?

    Short answer: 100% yes. The tow package comes not only with the hitch, connections, etc. but the aux switch bank as well as a heavy duty alternator. IMHO, the tow package and LED light package (simply due to the dimness of the halogen offering) are absolute must-haves.
  15. 15,000 mile service?

    Fellow JL owner, take it from someone who has very, very limited experience wrenching/tinkering both in general and on vehicles — you can quite easily change the differential fluid in both axles yourself. There are several Youtube videos showing the process and the basic tools/supplies you’ll...
  16. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    I got up early this morning and was fairly productive in the garage. Got four things done before noon that had been on my to-do list: 1. Install locking fuel door Picked up one of the ones listed on Amazon with good reviews (JeCar I think is the brand). It was around $40 or so and appears to...
  17. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    Went under my JLUR today and changed out the transfer case fluid. I’ve only got around 9,000 miles on the clock but mainly because I was looking for an excuse to wrench in the garage I decided this would be an great time to complete this task. I ended up going with Redline C+ATF fluid but only...
  18. New JL Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    Update to posts 556 and 584 of this thread: I had the TSB performed today. Here is the new steering gear after today’s installation: Although my dealership experience regarding this TSB repair was one to forget, Jeep Cares stepped up big time for me and authorized all parts and the repairs...

  20. New JL Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    I am in Southern California and the dealership at issue was (they have now agreed to perform the TSB repairs) Browning CDJR located in Norco, CA. While I am still dismayed by the dealership’s initial resistance and hostility, thankfully a great Jeep Cares representative helped me and got them...
