  1. Service Rip Off? Yes in my opnoin what do you think:-)

    I just received this message from the jeep dealership. I had the TSB for the steering box and used a oil change. The jeep has 17k miles on it. Are you serious, replace brake lining?
  2. 35" vs 37" Tires (and lift) on a JLRU for Daily Driver at 70-90 mph

    I have the JLURD diesel with 315x12.5 cooper sst pro and the engine dosen't even notice the bigger tires. Stock gears and stock suspension. The only time I drop into 7th gear is on steeper highway grades. Most inclines I stay in 8th. Off road the diesel just idles over obstacles. I am...
  3. Rubicon Diesel Test Drive (3rd time)

    I have the 2020 JLURD and it has 18k miles on it. I recently got the 35 inch tires installed. I was getting 27 mpg and it dropped to 25 mpg. The diesel doesn't notice the bigger tires at all and there's no reason to regear. On road I never feel the lack of power. Off road and I idle up...
  4. New JL Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    I contacted @JeepCares a while back and honestly, without their help, I would have never gotten the TSB done. My dealer kept saying not available. I had the work completed last Monday and the difference between before and after is amazing. Took about 4 hours to complete. No charge. At the...
  5. Lots of Good Reviews, those Bad Ones though....

    I have the JLURD and love it. The jeep has over 17k carefree miles on it. I just put 315's cooper sst and the engine doesn't even notice it. I did drop a couple mpg with the bigger tires but still love it. I was up near Joshua Tree National Park on some easy but extremely rock trails. 60...
  6. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    Finally got the TSB for the diesel steering box completed. What a difference. Thanks for @JeepCares the box came in. Last weekend I went up to the old dale mining district and gave the new cooper stt tires a workout. Tons of rocks. When I looked under the jeep at the MC underarmor I could...
  7. Rock hard or metalcloak underarmor

    I have the MC underarmor with no lift. Fits perfectly. I was up in the old dale mining district this weekend and the underarmor and RS slider got a workout. Only got a small ding on the driver's side on the slider. Highly recommend the MC underarmor.
  8. Exhaust Filter Nearing Full - Question

    I have a 2016 GC diesel and after the so called emissions upgrade the jeep started throwing regeneration in progress. The first time this happened the jeep went into limp mode and I had to have the dealership do a forced regeneration. I now see the regeneration about once a week or so...
  9. JLU Rubicon on 35s no lift

    Put new cooper stt pro 315x12.5 on today. I really like the look and feel. I do notice that the rear is lower than the front by about 1 inch. I think that is because of the spare tire. Not sure how to level up.
  10. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    Ruby got new shoes and rims. Cooper STT pro, 315x12.5x17. Fuel Ammo bronze 17 x 9 4.5 with 0 offset. No lift and 3.73 gears. Diesel engine. The diesel hardly even noticed the bigger tires and I lost about a mile a gallon. I drive up interstate 8 that has a significant up grade. The jeep...
  11. Does Rubicon even use 8th gear??

    I just upgraded to 35 inch tires. I am using stock 3.73 gears with the diesel and so far no problems. I go up interstate 8 mostly in 8th gear with it shifting to 7 only on the steepest grade. Sunrise highway has always been 6th gear and that didn't change. The diesel doesn't even notice the...

    San Diego Chrysler jeep charges $150.00 for the recalibration of the speedo.
  13. Replacing Factory Lug Nuts

    Ok I am confused, I read that the lug nuts have the thread of 1/2-20. I am reading here that the thread is 14x1.5 mm. While these threads appear the same, they are most definitely not. The metric thread will start on the SAE thread but quickly become tight. The result is damaged threads. It...

  15. Grand Canyon South Entrance

    I think that you can drive to the bottom of Grand Canyon...... once.
  16. Sandstone canyon closure

    The best thing that we can do is to follow the rules. Budgets are tight and for the park, the easiest method to control their lands is to close them. I don't agree with closures at all. Land management is facing an unprecedented amount of people on public lands. Wanton disregard of...
  17. Sandstone canyon closure

    I was told that the signs the park installed were ripped out and this only makes the issue worse. Please don't give the anti-access people the amo they want to use against us.
  18. Sandstone canyon closure

    Apparently people who causing issues in the canyon. Some people decided to setup a winch point to get past the end of the canyon. Then created a trail into the wilderness area linking canyons. Then someone cut down an very old tree for firewood. Because of action of the few all of us pay the...
