  1. Stop/Start Not Ready-Battery Charging

    Has anyone seen this problem persist after replacing just the aux battery. I purchased both aux and main batteries but the latter has not shown up yet. I replaced the aux this weekend, took a quick drive to see it "available" but am now seeing the message again.
  2. Oily residue on drivers side of engine... normal???

    Thanks for the post guys. I’ve been seeing this same oil staining on my ‘18 3.6 for a year plus but no drips on the garage floor in two plus years. With 22K miles and my last Wave oil change scheduled, I asked dealer to look into it....along with a failing ess battery. Like me on a few...
  3. Creaking front passenger seat while seated

    If you are comfortable with a rachet set, disconnecting a couple electrical harnesses and strong enough to slowly remove the weight of the seat eiher back or out of the rig, you will be good. I removed the seat by myself (putting painters tape on the painted door sill for protection) to find...
  4. Can you 100% eliminate steering shimmy?

    I have zero regrets about my MC lift and HD steering upgrades. Very happy with its handling as a DD and when climbing New England rocky/muddy/wooded trails. In my case, the shimmy came to light after upgrading to HD steering components at around 15K miles. This, in turn, brought light to...
  5. Can you 100% eliminate steering shimmy?

    This winter I started noticing and troubleshooting the same shimmy on my ‘18 JLUR. Only noticeable at speeds under highway, say under 50mph. Definitely not death wobble or bump steer. 37 Toyo MTs on 17” Icons., 2.5” MC Gamechanger with HD steering and updated stock stabilizer and aluminum...
  6. Stop/Start Not Ready-Battery Charging

    Add my 2018 JLUR with 22K miles to this "Start/Stop not available. Charging" list. Still under warranty so brought it in to dealer. Got it back with "just needed a charge". Ugh. This from the same dealer who put 6.5 qts of oil in during my first free Jeep Wave change and who could not find...
  7. Rear Reverse Lights

    Just did
  8. Rear Reverse Lights

    I tried to get mine in using soapy water but it was not going and I was concerned about damaging the seal around the new light by hitting it hard. As it turned out, drivers side looks good BUT the passenger side, which snapped in easily, is fogged up. Sadly, it had only seen one water event...
  9. [FULL] GROUPBUY: ORACLE Lighting Rear Bumper LED Reverse Lights for Jeep Wrangler JL

    Been here myself. Took some persuading. https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/rear-reverse-lights.44065/post-1354087 Just noticed today, btw, my passenger side has condensation in it.
  10. Rear Reverse Lights

    Trying to install mine at the moment. Passenger side went in with a snap. Driver's side, however, doesn't want to go. The Oracle's top width/shape is wider than OE reflector as you can see. I do not want to force it as the light will give before the steel bumper does. Anyone else see this...
  11. My steering wheel is off by 1 to 3% after off-roading

    Yes. All you have to do is scroll down and see the list of "Similar Threads" to know this is not uncommon and just something that comes with the sport. And of course, having the centuries of collective expertise on this forum is how we all keep the off-trail anxiety down to a minimum.
  12. My steering wheel is off by 1 to 3% after off-roading

    Being fairly new to this sport, I asked the same question and was essentially told "Welcome to wheeling where physics sometimes happens we cannot fully explain". In fact, my MC setup tends to loosen a bit when flexing and turning the front end significantly on the trails, requiring I be...
  13. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Got it. Door skins and hinges are aluminum. Bolts are steel, connected to door inner steel structure. Guess we get to live with this for life of rig
  14. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Sadly I must now add my rig to this list. Granite Chrystal JLUR w/ 10/18 mfg date, 22K miles, wheeled regularly this year in New England woods, driven daily, garaged every night, power washed (not soap washed) after wheeling and snow/rain just to keep my eyes on issues like this. I hope I...
  15. Maximus-3 JL Tire Carrier

    UPDATE: Not only do they build quality products, Maximus-3 has top notch customer support. I was contacted privately via this excellent forum regarding my carrier. Apparently they changed over powder coat colors to better match the stock bumpers and the source I purchased from had two...
  16. Blend Door Actuator

    My 2018 JLUR blender door actuator behind the radio is now making a squeaking noise. In fact, I can tell you exactly when it happens. 4:00 minutes after turning off the rig. There must be a timer that closes the door at this point. In fact, I can reproduce the noise by simply changing the...
  17. Maximus-3 JL Tire Carrier

    Thanks. I ended up removing the door stop mechanism, opened the tailgate fully, then reinstalled the stop with a bit of grease. Working well now. Very happy with the results. Time to order a tailgate table. BTW, curious why the hinges and carrier are different colors. Anyone else have this...
  18. Maximus-3 JL Tire Carrier

    My carrier is doing this as well and I’m trying to install on a Saturday. No one answering at M3. Any insight into what needed to be done to solve this?
  19. Creaking front passenger seat while seated

    Not wanting to argue with the dealer about this problem or lose my rig for a week to fix it, I solved this myself on my passenger seat. Just a generous amount of 3-in-1 oil applied to the collars on both sides of the steel rod at the back of the seat. It may be temporary but it has held up for...
  20. NEW! JL Front Camera offering - ZAutomotive 2/28/19

    Just downloaded the Gladiator User Manual which states: "Whenever the TrailCam image is activated through the Manual Activation Methods, and the vehicle speed is greater than or equal to 8 mph (13 km/h), a display timer for the image is initiated. The image will continue to be displayed until...
