  1. Would 5'6" wife have issues climbing in / out of Rubicon?

    We have the Mopar Rock Sliders that Notorious mentioned earlier on a Sport S with Rubi tires and suspension. The factory rock rails are pricy but they are good quality and make a fine step. Just don't ArmorAll them. :) Ingress will depend a lot on age and how good her knees are. Like many have...
  2. Differential Fluid change

    Some limited slip fluid smells burnt when new and is dark color, but not black. Maybe someone can chime in and post a pic of new Mopar LSD fluid.
  3. 3.6L ESS Battery Diagram

    If it's truly just a heavy duty relay as it appears (and the small plug is the trip current) then it would not matter which lug the N3 and Aux battery cables were connected to.
  4. 999999 Odometer

    Thanks. My dealer (E-Golf Jeep, Brevard, NC) re-flashed the software yesterday. It should be good now.
  5. 999999 Odometer

    Anyone else have this happen? Center section of the cluster never came on at startup yesterday. It stayed out while driving. The next time I completely shutdown everything and restarted it was back to normal. This was not a dimming of the lights. The center section was completely out. Hopefully...
  6. 999999 Odometer

    TS 08-108-18. It's listed in some of the posts above but you can also click on this thread.
  7. 999999 Odometer

    Our Sport did the 999999 thing on Monday but went back to normal almost immediately. That was around 359xx miles and at first I thought, has it always done that? Yesterday it did it again but stayed on 999999 for about 10 miles before showing the correct mileage. Today is Thursday and the...
  8. In praise (or not) of ESS? **NO POLITICS**

    If Jeep had announced a free option to turn off ESS every one here who hates it would love the option. A free switch to deactivate ESS. What a concept. After using ESS for almost a year it's second nature to just push the button when I don't want ESS to activate. We push a button to start the...
  9. Question: 285/17/17.......

    The diameter is 32.7" but on the Jeep with 36psi the true diameter will be closer to 31.75". It's still called a 33" tire though. The 285/75/17 is an inch taller. Here's a great calculator for comparing tires.
  10. Rubicon suspension with RC level kit on JL sport

    The Rubicon shocks and springs* are stiffer but also more compliant. On forest roads the ride is excellent. We had no complaints with our Sport ride but the Rubicon shocks are definitely a step up. Tony's Jeep looks great but I'm glad we didn't go with the spacers. That's a tough call to make...
  11. To Catch a Catch Can

    .... but a Rubicon will bring you back. :) Sorry, had to write that before someone else did. We LOVE our Sport !!! Now to tie that statement back into the thread, if we were rock crawling the catch can would be a must have if for no other reason than to prevent embarrassing smoking at extreme...
  12. MOAB...I just don't understand

    If we were buying today we'd get the MOAB. Here's why, we live in western NC (or will again after March 25th !!!!) and are far more likely to encounter winter roads with a dry curve then an icy curve then dry then icy over and over. In THAT scenario the Selec-trac is the preferred transfer case...
  13. Why did t the rubicon get the enhanced rails?

    Here's my 2 cents on why the MOAB gets the better rails, no one was buying the performance rails as an aftermarket part. BTW, our Sport was fitted with the performance rails by the dealer pre purchase and we love them. We don't rock crawl (see "Sport" above) so no idea how good they are...
  14. Dear Jeep, please don't make a "weird" hybrid version of the Wrangler...

    The transportation industry is dropping hybrids like hot potatoes in favor of full electric. The torque offered by an all electric Jeep would be phenomenal, but range (measure in miles onroad or hours off road) is the achilles heal for now. We may or may not want it but electric is happening...
  15. Cheap Jeep Hacks! Show 'Em Off Here!

    In the "might be dumb" camp, that would apply to me. This is so dumb I had to share it. I was looking at photos only and at first I thought, where is that circuit board located? Hey, if we can't laugh at ourselves ..... Now back to the OP, here's a cheap GPS mount I made. Just take GoPro...
  16. Am I the only weirdo that looks back at his Jeep after it's parked?!?

    We (Susan and I) both look back. I voted before I looked at the results and figured we'd be in the weirdo minority camp. Nope, not the minority. Maybe still weirdo though. We're OK with that. :jk:
  17. Refresh due to tires

    It's real easy, just follow the programmer instructions. All I needed was a tire size update so I went with the FlashCal JL from SuperChips.
  18. Refresh due to tires

    We went from 245/75/17 to 285/70/17 and the speedometer was off about 1 1/2 mph at 60. The dealer cannot reset the speedometer on tires below 35". This makes no sense to me but that's what they said so I bought a programmer (won't get into the Tazer vs Flashcal debate) and reset the size. Now...
  19. What to set the JL tire size with the KO2's?

    285/70/17 measured from ground to top of tire = 31.5 front, 31.75 rear. I used 31.75 and the speed is perfectly matched to the GPS. :jk:
  20. 33's on a Sport/Sahara?

    I paid $300 for the Rubicon shock and spring takeoffs and $700 for the tires from this site. (Thanks!!) My dealer replaced the shocks and springs for $300 and did the tire swap for another 80ish. Total out of pocket transformation costs was $1400. I highly recommend this for any Sport owners.
