  1. How to drive in snow and ice, for dummies...

    I’ll have to say the two door JL is sketchy AF when it’s only a couple inches deep on a highway in 2WD. Breaking the ass end lose is so easy. I’m able to control it thanks to having a ‘79 Toyota Hilux for many years in snow, but for people not used to snow, I suggest taking it slow.
  2. Jeeps in Snow... post pics.

    Not my JLR. My old WK2. Just want to show what a regular winter looks like in the California mountains for our Texas friends.
  3. Jeeps in Snow... post pics.

    Sierra Nevada Range in California. Kind of a drought year so far.
  4. Midland MXT 275 fit behind glove box?

    Perfect. Maybe I can keep the Cobra 75 box behind there too and run a dual setup until everyone makes the GMRS switch.
  5. Midland MXT 275 fit behind glove box?

    Has anyone mounted the main box behind the glove box or somewhere else out of sight? This works well with the Cobra 75, but the Midland seems much larger.
  6. question for the manual guys

    For my Rubicon, 5th at about 50, 6th about 65. Uphill on a highway usually can only use 4th from 50 on up.
  7. PSA: Rubicon Locker Sensor Housing Factory Defect - Please read.

    Just wondering if I should just put in a Z harness next diff oil change as a proactive measure? Coming from a ZJ, replacing sensors is just a normal Jeep thing for me. I’d rather never step foot into a dealership for any service. They want to detune if it goes in.
  8. “Service Axle Locker System” Light On

    Is the Z harness a legitimate fix for this issue? Going to the dealership for a full axle swap for a $20 sensor seems ridiculous.
  9. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    After skimming through 99 pages in this thread, what is the consensus? Never take your Jeep to the dealership? Upgrade to aftermarket?
  10. Driving through 2 feet of snow

    You definitely can, but sometimes there’s ice underneath a spot and that could get you stuck or spin out. Usually when there’s that much snow it’s hard to make out the difference between road and ditch.
  11. Roof Racks / Rails recommendations for SUP and Kayaks?

    Old fashioned Thule square bars and rain gutter towers work great for kayaks, SUP, ski boxes, etc. You may even be able to pick up the whole setup at a local store or even Craigslist. It’s pretty old tech with the rain gutters, 1980s setups would work just as well as 2021.
  12. Best Places to Live for Wheeling

    I’m gradually settling in to the Lake Tahoe area. Bought a cabin years ago and plan to retire there later. The winters can be pretty brutal, but when the sun is out, it’s very pleasant. The wheeling options are already well known. Nevada trails are very close and not so snowy. You can live on...
  13. 2 more months of winter...tick,tick,tick...

    Is that what Tahoe is looking like now? I need to dig out my house in Meyers next weekend. On the other hand I was cruising around Silicon Valley yesterday in 65F sunshine with my freedom top off.
  14. OIL change on 2021 Jeep Wrangler after 5,400 mile trip

    I don’t know much about the 2.0. The 3.6 on my WK2 never had an issue and it has a good reputation over the years in a bunch of different platforms. For Jeeps, I’m more interested in durability than gas mileage, torque or HP.
  15. What is the fastest speed you have driven your JL/JLU?

    80 a lot. Pretty common speed in California 65 zones. Usually I’m at 70-75 though.
  16. Cracked Windshield Club

    I’m in the club at 6,000 miles and 2 months of ownership. I had Safelite come out to fill in a star chip that would have been a free repair with USAA. The chip cracked while they were working on it. By the end of the week the crack is going 3 ways spreading half way across the windshield. I had...
  17. Insight needed from Rubicon owners

    For moderate off roading, a kinetic rope, on board air, deflator, tool bag, better than stock jack, CB/GMRS and a few buddies to share the experience is all you need. Keep your Jeep nice and light. Next step is better sliders, skid plates, steel bumpers, winch, spare axle shafts and other parts.
  18. OIL change on 2021 Jeep Wrangler after 5,400 mile trip

    I use the Penzoil Synthetic 0w20. 5,000 miles for the first change. Did the differentials then too. I’ve always changed synthetic at 5k, all my vehicles have reached high mileage with no problems. If you want to save money Costco has Kirkland synthetic 0w20 for pretty cheap. It’s probably same...
  19. 2021 JLU vs 2020 Grand Cherokee Acceleration

    I just came from a 3.6 GC to a 3.6 Rubicon. The Rubicon feels so much slower.
