  1. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    What size of tires do you have? The Rubicon gearing with stock tires isnt bad but IMO it should be 4.30 or 4.56. This is one reason why I wont likely increase my tire size anytime soon.
  2. Your favorite mod under $200

    I agree. Where did you get the wrap? I might consider doing a wrap on my rear fenders. They get hammered with rocks. Maybe I could wrap right over the chips and just replace it every year or two when it gets chewed up.
  3. Hard top clean up

    I don't have the upgraded painted top. The paint has some texture but it is not porous and should not be a problem (unless your tops are different than mine?). Also, the ceramic spray doesn't leave any white residue. This stuff works pretty good. It deepens the color of the paint and looks...
  4. Hard top clean up

    The hard top is painted so any automotive polish or wax will work. I just use a spray ceramic coating like the rest of the paint and mine looks great all the time.

    Bump, anyone have any recommendations?
  6. Austin to South Dakota?

    Anyone have trail suggestions in the Black Hills area?
  7. Your favorite mod under $200

    What Rubicon specific features are you using?
  8. Your favorite mod under $200

    Interesting idea. Got any more pictures of how you secured the light back there?
  9. Off-roading with a manual transmission?

    It is specific to all driving. On and off road you get more usable gears. You want the lowest crawl ratio off road so that the engine has mega power and you don't have to use the clutch. On road with the 3.45 gear ratio and the 6mt the Jeep is just geared silly IMO (I have owned both a JLS...
  10. “Stealth” hidden smittybilt H2O 12k winch install on Maximus-3 winch plate

    What did you use to hold the solenoid to the bumper frame? Any pictures?
  11. Off-roading with a manual transmission?

    Check out this video. I have had a manual sport and now a manual Rubicon. One of the main reasons i upgraded was that i didnt like the stock gear ratio in my sport. If your going with a manual transmission id highly recommend the Rubicon for the lower gears and transfer case. With the...
  12. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    I think were talking about lottery ticket odds here. Give it a bit and get the fix and youll be fine. In the meantime pay attention to how your Jeep is running.
  13. Jeep JL destruction from flat tow in 4Lo and 1st gear! Make sure transfer case is in neutral!

    So do you think they got to their destination and tried to start it before they figured out there was a problem? Just imagining the poor folks popping the hood to see what was going on all to see half the engine gone! Ha ha!
  14. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    Maybe JScan can develop a way to turn it off? I'm not sure I'm excited about it either but plan to get the fix done either way.
  15. Rubicon Steel Rear Bumper Worth It???

    Check out the prices on BAM Wholesale Parts. You can get the front bumper with LED fogs and skid plate for $1k. Even cheaper if you just want the stubby. Still not cheap but better than most vendors offer.
  16. Smittybilt XRC Gen3 9.5K Comp - 98695 or Smittybilt X2O 10K Syn Gen2 - 98510

    Cant decide between these two. Any advice? Amp draw looks similar, better line speed on the xrc, better warranty and waterproofing on the x20. Price difference isnt much but the xrc comes with a free AWS which id like. Thoughts?
