    I’ve been to Moab during EJS 3 times, we just got back today, had a great time. And we went last year in May, also had a great time. We did Arches and Needles parks last year, and had a great time. Don’t let anyone poopoo your plans, it’s still awesome, even when busy. Going back in 4 weeks...

    Just completed two phases. First phase, there was an issue with ARB, but shop replaced pinion bearings, but had to put stock carrier back in, also with upgraded bearings, and knock still persisted.

  9. STOP ORDER on all Manual Jeeps [Update: software flash fix arrives in March]

    I haven’t done first recall on clutch yet, it is perfect and not slipping. I removed the clip myself. I have transmission skid, ARB tank right in front of the master cylinder, and Tazer programming, I have no interest in removing all these to have recall done, when I have no symptoms. @DanW...
  10. STOP ORDER on all Manual Jeeps [Update: software flash fix arrives in March]

    There are two recalls. First was where the plate would heat up, due to air entering the system, and causing clutch to slip. It was the hose that is replaced in first recall, fluid bled, and clutch dump performed. The recall discussed here is second recall, a software update.
  11. STOP ORDER on all Manual Jeeps [Update: software flash fix arrives in March]

    My god you have to stop. if you are going to talk smack about something, at least have your facts correct. First, you keep saying there is something wrong with the manual transmission. There is nothing wrong with the transmission. Second, while not everyone loves this type of clutch, there is...

  14. Knock in rear with Dana 44

    Exactly, and sorry I don’t want to burst your bubble, but it has been stated many times in this thread, 2021’s have this issue, and part numbers haven’t been updated. Sorry, but really doubtful.
  15. Nebraska Safest way to disconnect battery in order to replace aftermarket amp

    You don’t need to disconnect both the positive and negative connections from the battery terminals, electricity has to flow in a loop, if you break the loop in one place, the loop is broken, so disconnect the negative. However, our Jeep’s have two batteries, so there are two negatives you need...

  18. Dana 44 Limited Slip

    knock in Dana 44 is well documented, people are getting new axles, now new carriers. the diff fluid change schedule is every 20k miles, so you are way over due. I did my first at 10 K, break in change...
