  1. So.....I want to buy a DSLR....photographers with opinions?

    We have DSLRs Nikon D90 DX and 2 - D600s FX plus Sony Mirrorless NEX 3N DX and NEX 6 DX and A7S FX. Each body has its pros and cons. Really depends on what you want to shoot and what you want to learn. All our Nikon lenses adapt to the Sony but are manual focus. We mainly take portraits and...
  2. New JL Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    Yeah some have posted that vague wandering steering is a normal “Jeep thing” and get over it. But that is BS. Even though our steering was never terrible it was a bit vague but tracked dead straight. So the involuntary swerving you are experiencing should never occur. Get your vehicle in and...
  3. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    No a TSB is not a recall unfortunately. They do this to limit their repair expenditures per unit to save costs to shareholders. Would definitely go to other dealers to see if they can push a claim through for you. It apparently seems to be at the dealers discretion to submit or not. They...
  4. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    For all those that have this QC problem, have FCA perform this as a warranty repair asap. Refer to this thread and the Pacifica thread below. Corrosion is a very well known problem and well documented as per the TSB. The body shop owner that FCA approved do my warranty repair noted that the...
  5. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Completely flooded driver footwell. Also footwell behind driver. Small amount under footwell behind passenger. Passenger footwell dry. Small drips from freedom top hitting center armrest storage bin. Everything corrected but you have to dry out for about a week with carpets all left lifted...
  6. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    So far so good. But had to go back 2x to get the job done properly. Key seems to be the epoxy primer under and around the hinge. Paint shop owner told me this is a very common problem on many FCA vehicle models. Not just JLs. Stay on top of the repair and get to know the shop owner or...
  7. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Yeah think carefully on that. Yep once you allow them to touch the original paint - it will never be the same as from factory. We had corrosion bubbles on one hood hinge and a tiny spot adjacent on the hood. Dealer outsourced to a body shop. Apparently because FCA pays so minimal - it is...
  8. LED headlamp in snow: has anyone wished or tried to switch to Halogen Headlamps?

    You actually can feel a bit of heat off the headlamp. Have never had any issues with snow buildup or brightness or color temp. Shines perfectly ok - but my guess is the bulbs were upgraded by the previous owner who traded this in with 5k for a JT when they first came out. The bulbs seem to...
  9. Emergency snow shovels?

    32. Had at 37 which is door sticker but was getting too much wear in the center.
  10. Tire rotation, yes or no?

    Personally the less anyone does on my Jeep the better. More chances for screw-ups when in for anything. So we just do our own 5T rotation. Super easy and gives you a chance to look over and do any maintenance on your rotors and calipers and lines etc. Just manually torque to specs and you...
  11. Options for carrying a canoe/kayak

    Hey chk out these pics to gauge the distances. Our bar spread is limited by the Skybox mount points. Def roof rails have been majorly punished at speed bombing over FSR potholed and washboard ruts. But airing down to 18 helps the Rubi suspension float nicely. As well uplift on the hwy is...
  12. Snow chains

    Yep Mud tires will slip and slide in winter conditions. So is not optimal. At least put on tires that have the 3PMSF symbol on the sidewall if you can. Maybe go smaller and narrower. Consider studs if allowed. In some cases tire chains are necessary. Especially to help extricate yourself...
  13. 😡 2020 JLUR Hardtop Defect (CRACKED @ 1,250 MILES) Jeep Dealer & Jeep Cares Refuses to Warranty it!

    Kevin try not to deflect this time. Stay with the program. Just admit you have no clue what BS you are spewing. No one is drinking any Kool Aid. Just that you are stuck in a pile of your own BS and are having a real hard time not continuing to roll in it. Tip: Just step away from the...
  14. 😡 2020 JLUR Hardtop Defect (CRACKED @ 1,250 MILES) Jeep Dealer & Jeep Cares Refuses to Warranty it!

    When you see a completely idiotic response like this and his repeated BS claims of objectively - which is really his own subjective opinion. It is clear we have a troll, clown, fool, or all of the above. Most all of the responses to his BS assertions are valid - yet he keeps on his path of...
  15. 😡 2020 JLUR Hardtop Defect (CRACKED @ 1,250 MILES) Jeep Dealer & Jeep Cares Refuses to Warranty it!

    Not only that but putting a couple propane tanks up top may have created a point load sufficient to crack the top bouncing down a trail. If full those tanks can weigh over 35lbs each. We put full ones in the rear footwell because of the weight. Tough to know all the deets obviously...
  16. Some non Jeepers seriously think they are invincible in a Snow Storm when in 4WD or AWD

    Yep we have a manual that uses Symmetrical at 50/50. Fantastic and very predictable with snows. Just like a rally car. But def prefer the Rubi for deep snow. Both are really good actually. As everybody has their own opinion. Yep we also have a 85 Benz TD with ABS. Was an option since 78...
  17. Going in 4WD over 45 mph

    Not intended to spoil all the fun in 4Lo - but FCA states: 1 Do not exceed 25 mph 2 Hard-surfaced roads will cause increased tire wear and damage to the driveline components 3 Take care not to overspeed the engine We stay pretty much to this in 4Lo - but 2Hi we let the V6 stretch...
  18. Limited Slip Differential vs. Traction Control/Brake Lock Differential

    Yeah not a perfect test by any stretch and anyone can criticize his vid. But super easy to replicate in snow, slush, or ice if you wanted to test yourself. At least he made a vid and posted it. Tons of other vids showing locker off vs locker on differences - in all types of conditions. Rock...
  19. Limited Slip Differential vs. Traction Control/Brake Lock Differential

    1 ESC is turned on by default when you start the JL 2 Often times 2H will be engaged but 4Hi is ok too 3 TCS works with ESC 4 BLD is a feature of TCS 5 FCA notes when TCS and ESC can be turned off 6 FCA notes when BLD stays on but TC turns off In what circumstance do...
  20. Going in 4WD over 45 mph

    Haha! What is more concerning is asking whether going 70 on the interstate in a snowstorm is ok in 4Hi? Use your judgement man. For this hypothetical - No one knows the true road conditions or if iced up bends are present or if the amount of traffic is a risk or whether there is any...
