  1. 2021 JL on 43s

    If you're keeping the front axle housing I would truss it. I'm currently replacing my JLR's front axle after a bend at the FAD unit in Moab and I'm only running 35s. Went with a spicer Ultimate D44 with 4.88s. @Ryanfold bent his Rubicon front D44 in the same spot and just replaced as well -...
  2. Lowest PSI with Heavy Paid Load

    The tire is physically clamped into the wheel in a beadlock setup, so you can go to ridiculously low pressures. Honestly though, a standard wheel and tire setup can safely go to 15 and the risk of popping a bead is extremely low. You’ve also got a full spare in case that happens. I’ve had my...
  3. I'm on vacation and I rented a 21 sport from enterprise. I can't get the doors off!

    Just need a bit more leverage probably. You could likely drive by a shop and have them take an impact to it for like 30 bucks or something if you're without tools. As far as I'm aware the door check bolt on the inside is a T40, and the hinge bolts are the T50s.
  4. Drivers side seat won’t fold back

    I wish mine were just the plastic piece. My passenger seat has failed for the second time and the dealer has had the jeep for 7 days now waiting on parts. I was supposed to install my Ultimate Dana 44 this weekend and they refused to release the jeep stating "safety concerns". They have it...
  5. Friend wants to buy a jeep to drive on the sand

    That, and running highway tires on a Jeep is criminal.
  6. Is EVERYONE having the paint bubbling problems?

    Zero paint issues on my 2019 JLR.
  7. Guess I should have ordered a Ford Bronco!

    The door latches don't work like the JKs used to. I've had better luck finding a rock on the ground to bash it off of than using the JL latches.
  8. Curvature of Upper Control Arms and Front Axle

    Possibly, but if you can wheel it hard enough to break this kind of shit as severely as he has, you can learn to spend some money and wrench on the rig. I just bent an axle in Moab after ditching off of a road to avoid a speeding dirt biker (I wish the story was more gnarly, but all of my...
  9. Curvature of Upper Control Arms and Front Axle

    Looks expensive, but the worst it could be is really a new set of front control arms, 2 shocks, a driveshaft and maybe a new axle if you bent it. Front rubicon OEM axles are around $2800 new - whether you need that or not, $600 in metalcloak front lowers and uppers, $700 driveshaft and a...
  10. BFGoodrich KM3 37x12.50R17 in both C and D Rated

    Bummer, but for what it's worth D isn't too bad. My Patagonia MTs are D rated and they're not that much different than my C KO2s I came from. They flex really nice when aired down too. I think after wheeling with tons of rigs, the KM3 seems to do the best on the rocks, and the STT Pros seem to...
  11. BFGoodrich KM3 37x12.50R17 in both C and D Rated

    C rated 37s? Interesting, keep us posted!
  12. Can I regear the rear of my JLR to 4.88 while waiting for my 4.88 UD44?

    Quick question - I need to regear my rear, and want to self-install the front UD44 axle coming in. Is it safe to have a shop regear the back and either leave it in 2WD with the FAD disconnected or pull the front driveshaft for a couple days until we get the new axle under the Jeep? Will it...
  13. Is it truly 470lbs torque all day or diminishing torque based on electric power

    You also don't lose output power proportionally with battery percentage in lithium ion packs, just as a laptop or phone can run at 100% of its advertised performance on the battery all the way to empty. A modern MacBook Pro will downclock at 5% charge to give you some time to save and close...
  14. 2dr wrangler JL oem subwoofer removal

    How do you remove that plastic molding? Seems so well secured on there with no clear entry point - been trying to figure this one out for awhile. I would love to be able to pull the sub for camping/overlanding runs where I could really use that storage bin. Toss it back in when back home in road...
  15. Stock Jeep Support Group

    That's my next dilemma. Since I now have an Ultimate 44 up front, I may as well go from 35s to 37s on my next tire purchase. Then begins the awful realization that the really nice tire carriers are thousands of dollars - I still haven't found a solution I want to pay for yet but the LOD one is...
  16. Stock Jeep Support Group

    Update to my hypothetical "why not get the ultimate 44": I bought the ultimate 44. So it goes. She'll be under the jeep and I'll be riding on 4.88s by the end of the month! Now excuse me while I take 400 fire extinguishers to my credit card.
  17. Uconnect® abolute POS!! Stay away from it...

    Yeah - it's not perfect but compared to the competition it's pretty good. Whatever is a functional way for me to get CarPlay going is good by me. Car manufacturers really have no business designing interfaces in the first place, but I think all things considered the uConnect system is half...
  18. What does Stellantis mean for Jeep going forward?

    When you consider that Tesla has a supercharger station every 200 miles on very many major routes across the country east/west and north/south - and you can get 200 miles of range added back in ~20 minutes plugged into one of those with any Tesla made in the last 6 or so years, we're getting...
  19. Any concern of spilling food in back seat (on top of PHEV)

    That battery has to be extremely sealed as well. This is a vehicle where the top comes off and rain can easily get in. I wouldn't worry.
  20. Stock Jeep Support Group

    I got rid of my KO2s and went 35" Patagonia MTs right at 14k miles on the stock JLR. Mine were pretty much shot, I had wheeled them so much they didn't have too much left in em. But once the floodgates opened it's hard to stop. I bent my front D44 and am looking at the options, $2800 for a...
