  1. Recommended Dealers List

    I have a friend who is an exec at Chrysler. I was able to make the purchase using a "CDI" ... basically employee pricing. I recently sold my JLU (depite loving it) to buy a 2020 Gladiator. I ended up buying from Koons in VA at 8% below Dealer Invoice. It was a deeper discount than getting...
  2. Vinyl Wrap

    @48thChamber ... I went with some inexpensive Etsy climber & mountain biker decals. I used masking tape and a 3'x5' sheet of vinyl to create a template and cut my own pieces to surround the fender vent and the 'ribbon' above and below the compass on the rear.
  3. Naked JL Pics - Topless and Doorless (Jeeps only please)

    My door hangers aren't "pretty", but they are cheap & effective. Hopefully these pics & measurements help you with your door storage solution. To hang all 4 doors, I needed 4 - 2"x4" boards that were 21.5" long to run stud to stud at the front of my garage, between my garage door and the side...
  4. JKS quick disconnects -- hard to disconnect or bad install?

    I know I'm late to the party. These are tough to disconnect in the following circumstances ... 1. Too large of washers preventing full outward swing (unusual, but the main issue with your set.) 2. Being on unlevel ground (something to consider every time you use them.) 3. Not sufficiently...
  5. Jks quick disconnect issue?

    Can you post a pic of how you have them pinned up when disconnected? I haven't had problems with my pins coming out.
  6. Has anyone used the Warn power interrupt kit with a Smittybuilt X20 winch?

    They were recommended by someone else on these forums. I can't recall who, so I'll just credit the 'forum' itself.
  7. Has anyone used the Warn power interrupt kit with a Smittybuilt X20 winch?

    I bought this bag of stainless #10 x 1/2 self tappers from Amazon. I've used a handful of them already. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B076BWD954/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  8. Has anyone used the Warn power interrupt kit with a Smittybuilt X20 winch?

    Based on ideas in this thread, I ended up going with this Solenoid/relay/isolator to use Aux 3 to activate my winch on my new Gladiator. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B082HMDMLG/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I only hand spooled the line for now ... it got drizzly and...
  9. Has anyone used the Warn power interrupt kit with a Smittybuilt X20 winch?

    Does it matter which of the two small terminals is connected to the aux switch and which is the ground?
  10. Recommended Dealers List

    I highly recommend Koons Tyson's in Vienna, VA. @Koons_of_Tysons_Corner Craig Benner is the online sales manager ... your "go to" guy. Craig was great throughout the whole ordering & purchasing process. I ordered a Gladiator through Craig on Feb 20th. It arrived in VA on Mar 20th. I made...
  11. Has anyone used the Warn power interrupt kit with a Smittybuilt X20 winch?

    How do you connect your compressors to power? What connection type (hard wired, cigarette lighter plug, etc), what guage wire, & what amp fuse?
  12. Has anyone used the Warn power interrupt kit with a Smittybuilt X20 winch?

    @sourdough , I see you went with an underhood switch rather than using a cabin aux switch. Are all of your aux switches already being used? IF you were using an aux switch, how would the wiring be different? ... green from the solenoid to an aux wire, and black from the solenoid to a ground...
  13. Has anyone used the Warn power interrupt kit with a Smittybuilt X20 winch?

    Good point! Sounds like using a manual disconnect under the dash or a solenoid to an aux switch would best address this possibility. Any reason not to run a manual disconnect under the dash?
  14. Has anyone used the Warn power interrupt kit with a Smittybuilt X20 winch?

    What are your thoughts on running the manual disconnect wires so that I can connect/disconnect above a 'dead pedal' under the dash rather than in the engine bay?
  15. Has anyone used the Warn power interrupt kit with a Smittybuilt X20 winch?

    I'm a first time winch owner. I'm going to install my Smittybilt X20 comp in the next week or so. What are the concerns of having it wired directly to the battery? - I read the horror story of the bumper pinching the wire causing a fire. But, that sounds like a freak accident to me. - I...
  16. Steering Damper recall 2018

    My steering was great for 2 years. But, since I'm selling my JLU to get a Gladiator I decided to get the recall work done. I had a few instances of a minor shimmy within a few days. Two weeks after the recall work was done, I had my first ever significant death wobble experience on an...
  17. Steering damper recall and death wobble

    My 2018 JLU sport S had NO steering issues even though it was part of the recall batch. I didn't bother getting the recall work done ... until 2wks ago. I'm putting my JLU up for sale to buy a Gladiator and didn't want to leave a standing recall on it. I was getting a little bit of wobble...
  18. 33's on a Sport/Sahara?

    Any road spray with the +18? What's the width of the wheel? 7.5? 8.5?
  19. 33's on a Sport/Sahara?

    The main thing you need to do is remove the plastic pieces that bridge the gap between your front bumper and fender flares. 33s & 35s will rub those when you turn. There are 6 or so screws per piece ... pretty easy to see and remove. Although I seem to recall that there was an extra one on...
