  1. Gas mileage

    I used to get a solud 21 on highways and 19 in the city in my 2 door JL completely stock. Now that I have 33’s and a 2” lift I can sometimes barely get into 8th gear and am stuck at 17 mpg at the most
  2. Thoughts about winches

    I’d say get a winch, especially if you think you’ll ever want to do more moderate trails. It’ll save your Jeep or someone else’s from a very expensive tow. Me and my buddy have used ours 2 times now, once because he got stuck and another time because a random person on the trail was stuck, and...
  3. Air Compressor in the Engine bay, bad idea or not?

    I’ve been looking at getting an air compressor so I can air down when going off roading. The problem is I’m not sure whether I should consider mounting it under the hood or just having it not mounted at all. it seems like mounting it under the hood you run into the problem of dirt, water, heat...
  4. JL Sport S Off Road Capable Daily Driver Budget Build

    It’s a Rockhard 4x4 winch plate. It bolts to the same metal that the bumper bolts to, so it’s just as strong as adding a new bumper. Super easy to install
  5. JL Sport S Off Road Capable Daily Driver Budget Build

    Seems to be what a lot of people are going for, which actually surprised me to find out! Thats a good way to go. Do you plan on regearing and adding lift to achieve 35’s or what’s your plan? I want to do them eventually, but I know it’ll be a hefty investment to get my Jeep prepared for it. I...
  6. Driving without Sway Bar Disconnects?

    I’d like to think that it may be because of how stiff my coil springs are. I’m in a 2 door Sport with soft top and using the heaviest JLU springs I could find. So maybe that prevents the front end from articulating as easily as it would on stock suspension or something
  7. Driving without Sway Bar Disconnects?

    Hey everyone. This past weekend I went off-roading and ended up losing the nut to one of my stock front disconnects, so I ended up driving the whole way home without disconnects. Honestly I didn’t notice a huge difference in anything, except when going over things like speed bumps became super...
  8. My Jeep is “modifying” Me.

    I never expected to spend a ton of money modifying my Jeep. I knew I’d spend a little, but only on absolutely mandatory/necessary things for what I want to do. $3,000 later I realize this Jeep has changed me. I’ve never loved a vehicle or what it can do so much. And never understood how someone...
  9. JL Sport S Off Road Capable Daily Driver Budget Build

    Holy Cow! That’s a good looking Jeep, love the 3” lift you got out of that 2.5 Mopar lift! I haven’t gotten the disconnects for 2 reasons. 1) I was actually going to get them this weekend, but wasn’t sure what to get exactly or if I’d need longer ones due to the new height or not. 2) Manually...
  10. JL Sport S Off Road Capable Daily Driver Budget Build

    Just finished the last part of my off road capable daily driver on a budget for my 2020 2 door Sport S. Hopefully some new people to the community can find this and take something away from it. Thanks to silverbullet for introducing me to this style of mods. 1. You don’t need to purchase new...
  11. Just bought JLUR Suspension for my 2 Door Sport S. Question though

    Just installed the suspension. Got a 2” lift in the rear and ~1.25 or 1.5” in the front. I have a steel winch plate and winch, so that’s probably why the front is less. I should’ve listened to your thread and gotten the 0.75” anyways. But I wanted to see how the Jeep would settle before doing...
  12. Just bought JLUR Suspension for my 2 Door Sport S. Question though

    that’s great to hear! Did you throw on new/longer Lower Control Arms at all? How about sway bar disconnects, did you need longer ones of those as well? I’m actually planning on installing the suspension I got tomorrow. Oddly enough I got a 91 & 92 springs. Not sure why mine are one point higher...
  13. Just bought JLUR Suspension for my 2 Door Sport S. Question though

    actually one last question if you don’t mind. Did you also purchase new LCA for the rear or not?
  14. Where are you guys placing your switches?

    Got myself a voswitch switchbox. It was something like $250 but only takes up 1/2 the little tray on the lower dash. The buttons are illuminated and turn amber when activated. And you can turn the whole switch box on/off from the controller if you want. Plus it comes with the ability to have it...
  15. Just bought JLUR Suspension for my 2 Door Sport S. Question though

    These are the springs I was given: 68250229AC 68414072AA 68250230AC 68249113AA The shocks were: 2x 68251039AB 2x 68250159AB I was unsure what Jeep the shocks belonged to and couldn’t find anything online. They seem like they could be right since they’re 6825, but they could also be for 2 door...
  16. Any issues fitting 5x 35's in a 4dr JL?

    I’d assume so if you planned correctly. I was able to fit 5 JLUR 33’s in my 2 door so I cant see why you wouldn’t be able to fit 5 35’s in your 4 door. 1 in passenger, 1 or 2 in back seat, 1 on spare carrier, 1 or 2 in trunk.
  17. Just bought JLUR Suspension for my 2 Door Sport S. Question though

    The suspension is 60/61 and 90/91. I also purchased longer LCA just to be safe, although I’ve seen people say it’s not necessary. But will this be too stiff of springs or too much lift for my 2 door? I don’t have steel bumper or tow package or hard top. I was hoping for a max of 2” lift since I...
  18. Wiring halos to side markers?

    An easier way in my opinion, use a fuse tap. Tap into one of the accessory fuses that you don’t use (cigarette lighter, seat warmer, etc), and run a wire from the halo to the fuse tap. Costed me $10 and took maybe 30 minutes to wire everything up. that’s if you want them on whenever your engine...
  19. What’s the best possible OEM JLUR Suspension Combo possible for a 2 door Sport S

    I’m trying to keep things factory and install some JLUR suspension on my 2 Door Sport S. It seems I want springs from a rubicon with hard top + tow package + steel bumper. But does a 3.0L engine with those same packages have even better suspension? It seems the regular max is 60/62 and 90/91...
  20. Help identifying these coil springs?

    I recently purchased some 2018 JLUR coil springs from someone on Craigslist. He said his JLUR had the hard top and steel bumper but no tow package. The deal went smooth and the guy was super friendly and nice, he explained the springs and where they go on the vehicle and everything. I didn’t see...
