  1. Best Setup for RV Flat Tow

    The blue ox base plate works well and is fairly concealed. I also installed the Warn winch plate with a Warn 10K winch. Both are compatible for installation with no modifications. The Steel Jeep bumper is not thick enough to weld tow hooks to. I know there is some out there that have adapted...
  2. Backup Camera issue

    I went to get a bite and a pint and all is working again. I think thank these JL were built on haunted ground
  3. Backup Camera issue

    Houston, I think we have a problem. My back up guide lines disappeared today and a warning came across the top of the screen saying “Camera System Unavailable” but you can still view the rear of the vehicle via the camera. Hope this update they just came out with cures this. I purposely waited...
  4. Back-up Camera showing part of spare tire

    There is an advantage to this, being that the camera picks up the bottom half of the spare it also allows you to see the trailer hitch ball when installed. Helps when backing up to a trailer to connect.
  5. steering wheel not center while driving straight

    I noticed that they didn’t do a castor reading. Makes me question if they did a complete alignment set up. Your first read out the toe was off but that is corrected now. Here is a link that may help you understand what the alignment readings are referring to. Nothing but a little geometry...
  6. Failed emissions - has this happened to you?

    Certain components of the emission system have to run a check and report back it’s operational status. Commonly called a monitor. Sometimes the system doesn’t cooperate and the monitor didn’t run and when the emission check using the DLC commonly known as the OBD2 port is done, this can result...
  7. steering wheel not center while driving straight

    Post print out and I will read them and give you a professionals opinion
  8. steering wheel not center while driving straight

    I am unsure on the JL but on other straight axle vehicles they made a sleeve that would move the shaft on the ball joint or after market manufactures actually built a ball joint that was offset to adjust camber or castor individually or upper control arms can change total castor on the entire...
  9. steering wheel not center while driving straight

    I have the exact same issue. Always tugging on the wheel to the left to keep it straight down the road. When it goes in for the recall I going to have the alignment checked and request a print out of the specs that the vehicle is set at. I aligned cars for forty years and the statement it is in...
  10. Brake warning light

    That’s interesting, on my JLUR the light comes on but there is no warning chime if it isn’t released when you start to drive away per manual. Per Owners Manual NOTE: • When the parking brake is applied and the automatic transmission is placed in gear, the “Brake Warning Light” will flash. If...
  11. flat tow

    Under the passenger seat is another plug identical to the floor mat drain. Just separate the carpet at where the front and back meet under the seat and feel around, you’ll find. Perfect spot as designed. I installed the wiring and looked at that and thought Cool Tech is a little smarter than...
  12. Trailers at 3500 lbs or under with brake controllers

    New York Trailer Brake Laws Every trailer and semitrailer weighing more than 1,000 lbs. unladen and every trailer and semitrailer manufactured on or after January 1, 1971, having a registered maximum gross weight or an actual gross weight of more than 3,000 lbs. shall be equipped with adequate...
  13. Fobless key

    Why not just remove the battery from a extra fob and hide on the outside of the Jeep, under the hood. Then when you are locked out install the battery and you are good to go.
  14. Off road navigation

    I don’t mind Jeep only having the basic map system loaded, it would be beneficial to those that want Topo maps that Jeep would make it as an map upgrade that we could load different regions for off road. @JeepCares is there a possibility that this maybe a future data purchase?
  15. What’s the JL’s main battery good for?

    Reading what I can from bits and pieces of the wiring diagrams posted, is the aux battery is used to control relays that control the power drawn off the primary battery. Without the aux battery the controls won’t activate the relays to utilize the main battery. This is why disconnecting the aux...
  16. Uconnect app problems

    I contacted Uconnect to activate my free services and they wanted a credit card #. What’s up with that? I can’t unlock all the map services, App usage and other benefits that were supposedly for free the first year. Has anyone else had this happen?
  17. Rubicon front license plate bracket

    My JLUR has the front steel bumper. On my WWII 1943 Ford GPW came with a steel bumper and they were not never intended to have a license plate. I ordered this for it and I have just ordered one for the JL. Going to try and use existing bolts off to the side of the winch, it was cheap enough to...
  18. Track bar sheared off at the weld. I feel like I’m cursed with my new JL

    You are correct. The weld around that track bar appears to have not penetrated into the bracket. Another thing I noticed is it appears to me that the frame was painted before the track bar bracket was welded on, as I think I see paint under where the bracket mounted. I have seen welding through...
  19. Track bar sheared off at the weld. I feel like I’m cursed with my new JL

    I see the reference is to the NTSB, that Gov agency is mainly for large municipal transportation issues. You need to report this to https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/VehicleComplaint/ which is the National Highway Transportation Safety Board. The link above will take you directly to the reporting...
