Sweet. Thanks for sharing. Great to see all of the positive experiences with the turbo replacement.
I wanna be in the no-rattle turbo club too!
I really dread the dealer, but making appointment now. I expect push back (last time they said rattle could be related to steering TSB - 😆). Wish...
Looks great. Did you paint the tow hooks? I’m going for the same style (I’ve decided on ordering those Mopar wheels too).
**edit** disregard...I see now the hooks are OEM black; perhaps other poster painted red or swapped with originals.
Regarding the specs...I came across an article with the following info.
“The new 37-inch tire (37x12.5R17) is a Raptor-specific load-range "C" model that measures out to about 36.5 inches and weighs about 68 pounds.”
I was disagreeing with his assertion that an I-6 or 5.7 option is now somehow “desperately needed” for the JL to compete with the forthcoming Bronco. And as I said, for more reasons than what’s under the hood. But count me in for a cheaper V-8 option or 392 made available across other trims...
Well done. Mind if I...ahem...”borrow”...your video? 😂. I’ve been meaning to take my Jeep to the dealer for same noise,
especially before warm weather arrives, and windows are routinely down, etc. That’s when I really notice it and it drives me crazy. Thanks for sharing and look forward to...
Ha. Jeep now offers the Wrangler in 2.0T, 3.6, Diesel, 4XE, 392 Hemi, and a full electric version is in the works. But now, a turbo I-6 or 5.7 V-8 is “desperately needed” for the JL to “compete with Bronco.” I respectfully disagree. For more reasons than what’s under the hood.
Your dealer should send pics to Jeep for authorization to repaint the fender (this is the remedy). I recommend you notify @JeepCares for assistance.
Side rant: how in the world is this obvious defect with the paint still occurring after 3 years? Unbelievable.
Take a look at the damper from underneath - there is an arrow that should point towards the front of the Jeep. When installed incorrectly (upside down), it will look like this when viewed from above (points towards the rear):
