  1. Total loss for my Willys...but i'm fine.

    Ouch!!! Glad you are unharmed. But after using the lords name in vain I fear you will end up driving a Prius. :)
  2. Never thought I would have a 4cyc!

    I really like the 2.0L also and it's returning around 25 mpg's as my daily driver. Of course mine is just a stock Sport.
  3. What made you jump in the Wrangler bandwagon?

    I chose to get a Wrangler almost 100% for it's easy flat tow ability behind my RV. Luckily I have fallen for it as a daily driver also so it's a win win.
  4. See light through the passenger door when closed... is your Quadratech sill guards. I have them and have the same situation. Mine are installed correctly. There is really only one way accounting for the formed end. I am disappointed and considered removing them. I've since decided I might rather protect the sill paint...
  5. New JL, was this item free?

    I got the bigger alternator but they didn't exactly throw it in. It's included with the Alpine upgrade.
  6. New JL, was this item free?

    I ordered my new JL & did not order tow package and there was no receiver when I took delivery. I added one right away. The real "gift" would be if they accidentally gave you the trailer wiring as well. Both a receiver and trailer wiring can be added after the fact. Adding the receiver is a...
  7. Nosey neighbor..

    With my generation (boomer) asking how much someone paid for a big item (house/car etc.) was in poor taste. Things have changed. But your neighbor that asked is an imbecile. If I wanted to know what your vehicle cost I would go inside, get online, & figure it out with a high level of...
  8. JLUR rolls multiple times off potato salad hill

    What a hobby! Glad it isn't one of mine.
  9. 8.4 Upgade Update Question

    Steering wheel controls work perfectly with no delay. It probably sounds better than the 7". Mine was installed by a high end auto sound shop & they showed me how to adjust the eq on the Stinger. Like I said I have the Alpine upgrade so sound was already decent.
  10. 8.4 Upgade Update Question

    I upgraded to the Stinger 10" right after I got my 21 with the 7" screen. The Alpine was off the table for me as I already had the upgraded Alpine system that I ordered the JL with. I've had the Stinger for about 4 months & have found no faults. Only teeny tiny gripe is when listening to...
  11. Jeep JL destruction from flat tow in 4Lo and 1st gear! Make sure transfer case is in neutral!

    Mine is a 44' weighs 40,000 and is amply powered. I mistakenly left the park brake on after hooking up my last toad one time (2014 Ford Edge). Everything else was correct. When I tried to pull away coach could hardly move. I realized what I had done & stopped right away & returned to the...
  12. Jeep JL destruction from flat tow in 4Lo and 1st gear! Make sure transfer case is in neutral!

    I've been flat towing SUV's & now my new JL behind motorhomes for over 20 years. It is very easy to make a mistake...knock wood I haven't made one yet. This one seems odd to me. Jeeps instructions are to put trans in N & turn off engine. Then shift TC to N & restart engine & put trans in...
  13. Transfer case difficult to shift out of N after flat towing

    Thanks Gentlemen! Since new prior to tow set up I have only moved TC from 2H to 4H a measly two times. Other than that nothing and the TC shifter is plenty (firm). When I haven't been able to get it out of N I have opened the driver door, put my shoulder into nudging the Jeep and have been...
  14. Transfer case difficult to shift out of N after flat towing

    I purchased my 21 Sport Altitude unlimited essentially to tow behind my motorhome. All indicators are it will be a hall of fame toad. Easily goes into tow mode before towing but after towing is sometimes very difficult to get transfer case from N to desired position (say 2H). Condensed...
  15. Flat Towing 2021 Jeep Wrangler

    Yea our use is quite different than yours. You tow for two weeks without unhooking & my whole trip is two weeks. But for the record I'm in KC so the beach (gulf) is 1000 miles one way where we are going. I'll tow for two 500 mile days without unhooking or starting. I carry a jump box & a...
  16. Flat Towing 2021 Jeep Wrangler

    No powered auxiliary brake I use the Ready Brake. I chose the JL specifically for ease of towing its really gonna piss me off if I get a dead battery with the key off
  17. Flat Towing 2021 Jeep Wrangler

    Nah not kidding. Got my JL all set up to flat tow & leaving for the beach in two weeks. I'm not new to flat towing I've been pulling cars behind my motorhome for over 20 years. Most cars/suv's I have towed needed a charge line, fuse pulled, or a batt disconnect. They also needed to be left...
  18. Who actually uses A/C?

    Didn't even know you could get a Wrangler without AC. I wouldn't be without it but my Wrangler is simply my daily. No mods, no removing doors, top, etc. It gets hot as heck in summer & I wouldn't be without AC.
  19. Flat Towing 2021 Jeep Wrangler

    I'm confused....When flat towing Wrangler is OFF so why would there ever be a dead battery?
  20. What are the tailgate vents really for?

    Good guess I do have the Quadratec sill protectors.
