  1. Constantly asked why didn't I get a 4 door!!!! Anyone else?

    I clearly meant "same engine" in regards to mpg and acceleration, and had immediately added it right after posting. I have zero desire to go down a rabbit hole with someone justifying their purchase as something "better" for anyone other than themselves, trying to amplify and minimize points and...
  2. Constantly asked why didn't I get a 4 door!!!! Anyone else?

    lol huh? Nope, I've never been asked. Do people in your area also ask those who got the 2 door BMW, Hondas, and other makes and models? If I were asked, there's no shortage of obvious reasons (for me), though: -Over 6' tighter u-turn radius. I've found this to be awesome for on and off road...
  3. Nosey neighbor..

    IMO, life is too short to fear honesty in the face of a simple curious question, though I'm not in the OPs shoes to have full context on the vibe the neighbor gives, nor is anyone else who is replying, including those talking about "retaliation" to just a question. I'm a people-watcher and love...

  5. Just saw my first Jeep 4xe

    Your post/experience conflicts with nearly everything I've read as well as my own testing with Tesla cells and their output. Tesla Model 3 drag times tested by battery % 100% charge = 11.4X 78% charge = 11.65 56% charge = 11.87 25% charge = 12.28 Now, the Model 3 weighs around 4,000 lbs, and...
  6. Just saw my first Jeep 4xe

    HUGE exaggeration there. Sorry, but as a guy who is a big fan of tech and electric motors, as well as a data nerd and still holding a high appreciation of gas/diesel engines... The 4XE makes 6-7% more torque than his 3.0 diesel, though the 4XE should have instant torque and a better curve vs...
  7. Front bumper question dealing with sensors and safety groups.

    Like Jerry said, my Rubi has the advanced safety and I swapped the OEM plastic front bumper with the upgraded Mopar Steel bumper while seeing there were no sensors. The rear bumper DOES have sensors, though. I'm not sure if non-US versions have sensors in the front bumper, but none in the US do...
  8. 2 door vs. 4 door sales

    That makes sense for many, but it's very confusing to me that people don't understand some of us have zero need, use, or desire for the 4 door over the 2 door as a daily driver, even if a 4 door was cheaper. A 4 door, for my needs, is like putting 4 sinks in my kitchen. It'd actually be a...
  9. 2 door vs. 4 door sales

    I just looked at the dealership by my house, where I purchased (Nyle Maxwell). They have on the lot: 8, 2 door Wranglers, ave price $56,982 47, 4 door Wranglers, ave price $54,477 So, for whatever reason, the 2 doors on their lot happen to be more loaded/higher trim, by an amount around $6k...
  10. Are there any options/specs that you regret getting OR not getting?

    When I had my 2019 Sport S, there were a few things I wished it had, then bought a 2021 Rubicon that was loaded well-beyond those things, and realized there were many other things that were really nice to have. Cloth seats: Nice seats, but I hated how the cloth seats were like dog hair magnets...
  11. Anyone have buyer's remorse for ordering the 3.6 instead of the 2.0 Turbo.

    I've had JLs with both. I have zero concerns or complaints with my current 3.6, and my only minor annoyance with my 2.0 was the crazy cooling fan noise they all have when it's warm out. The 3.6 has proven itself to go hundreds of thousands of miles, has very consistent torque with a longer...
  12. Garage height and lifted Jeeps

    I have a 2018 home built by CalAtlantic with a 2-car garage. The garage clearance measures a little over 82", and my Jeep measures around 77", giving it over 5" of clearance. My Jeep Rubicon has the Mopar lift (added about 2.5", and 37" Nitto Ridge Grapplers). It would seem I could (barely) get...
  13. Software Update Recall -- "2021 JL Advanced Brake Assist" [Code Y09]

    Mine has the recall as well. 2021 JLR 3.6 auto with advanced safety, purchased off the lot in Oct 2020. When you click on the recall, it's not listed under a safety recall, but a campaign and here's how they explain the difference
  14. Hard top w/new buy

    I'm also a 2 door person and having big dogs (like I thought all Jeep people had lol) means I often need open access to the back for them to jump in and out. They're too big to just open the tailgate. A hard top was a must. Just open the tailgate, flip up the glass panel with zero effort, which...
  15. 2021 or wait for 2022. Lease due soon. What's new for 22???

    I don't see them ditching either option soon. The 3.6 is the current Wards 10 Best Engines, has a solid flat and long towing torque curve, great cooling, and is known to go hundreds of thousands of miles. The 2.0 helps fleet ave mpg to avoid penalties, is in the new 4XE, and it's an efficient...
  16. Loving my ROAM frame-mounted side steps/rock sliders

    I ordered and installed mine Nov 2020 and 2 months later (this pic is from Jan 2021), the bolts and bolt holes had a good amount of rust. During those 2 months, it sat in my garage and had 800 miles put on it. Never saw snow, salt, and was washed once. I ended up ordering stainless steel bolts...
  17. Mopar's "Version 2" Steel Front Bumper

    Love my overpriced garbage. I love its design, finish, weight, and functionality. If I were into trails that required a lot of winching and rock bashing my bumper, I'd consider something beefier, heavier, and ugly (imo), but I'm not. I have the capability to winch if ever needed(one that's...
  18. Why are MOPAR stuff SO Expensive????

    Well since you're comparing Mopar to Rugged Ridge, here's my Rugged Ridge Spartacus. Installed Oct 30, pic taken Jan 30, 2021, @ 3 months old, and only 800 miles put on my Jeep as it sat in the garage, only out in the rain a couple times (before the Austin snow that recently hit). The hinges...
  19. What did you do WITH your Jeep today.

    Played in the snow, because we never see snow like this in Austin Texas!
  20. 3.6L, 8 AT, 37”: 4.88 or 5.13?

    No, I modified it right after getting it. I was surprised to see it in 8th @ 46mph so I video'd it. I usually don't pay attention to the gear. The places I drive are horrible for MPGs, constant stop signs and 75-80mph toll road every few weeks. I always get way less MPGs than a vehicle is rated...
