  1. CAI with 4xe

    I've finally realized that if you aren't changing induction or spending 1000s on engineering, it's not worth it. I'm not adding an intake to my 2.0t etorque, and I'd be even less likely to add it to the 4xe. Cat deletes and re flashes might help though.
  2. Southeast fuel shortage...

    While I like the EV for the fact that you can either charge or run on gas, and the powers that be probably won't create a shortage on both at the same time, you can make biodiesel at home. Making the kind of power needed to charge an EV is a massive investment. Diesel owners need to get the...
  3. Whats coming in 2022?

    I'd love a bare bones 5.7 Hemi Wrangler. A low power, low revving v8 should last forever. Would have the same overall performance as the Pentastar though, so I doubt it'll happen.
  4. Engine running rough/sputtering?

    That clanging/racket is probably the wastegate, it'll make the same noise on deceleration.
  5. Vader Grill on 2020 JL Wrangler

    Why do your headlights only have on bulb? They're supposed to have way more
  6. Big price increases??

    It's a sellers market for new vehicles. Dealerships are empty. And its a crappy situation too, under normal conditions you could just wait 1-2 years and buy when everything normalizes, but if inflation is what everyone is expecting, it'll be cheaper to buy at inflated prices now.
  7. We're far from done with production hell

    They'll eventually break ground on the massive Taiwan semiconducter facility in Phoenix. The less made in china, the better.
  8. Wrangler JL Wind Noise

    The wind noise is to drown out the creaks and rattles.
  9. Safe to leave 4xe plugged in for multiple days

    BMS should cut power/charge. But usually battery capacity will degrade when stored at 100% all the time.
  10. $2000 Price Increase For 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe

    I think I'm the use case for a 4xe. It would be my daily driver, a Rubicon has more than enough capability for what I do, and I like the option of electric or gas with the artificial shortages and price gouging they like to do with fuel. If I had 'tesla as a second car money', the 4xe wouldn't...
  11. Greed will get you in the end.

    So now where should I go to get 5% below invoice pricing... Also, another instance of Facebook being used for criminal enterprise. Do you think Apple will take them off their app store now? Amazon hosting? ICANN routing?
  12. 100% Battery Range

    Wouldn’t that be a more efficient setup? The engine would both charge the battery and heat the cabin on cold days. Vs draining substantial energy from the battery pack to heat the cabin.
  13. 100% Battery Range

    I’m not sure what e-heat is, I know the climate controls were not running. The battery did have temperature management for both heating and cooling. Obviously, it takes more energy to heat than to cool the battery pack.
  14. JL Wrangler vs New Ford Bronco

    I did... I looked at the 4Runner too, and would have probably looked at the Bronco if it was out. I was really turned off by the horror stories of the solid front axle, and thought that was going to be a big compromise on the road. Long story short, the stories are over inflated.
  15. 100% Battery Range

    Even here I was getting a 40% reduction in range during the winter with my 500e
  16. JL Wrangler vs New Ford Bronco

    You’re looking at two very different buyers. The people that don’t know cylinder count aren’t going to care about the Broncos capability. And stock for stock, the Bronco looks more like a regular SUV than a “tough military off roader”, which is why mall crawlers buy the Wrangler. To look like a...
  17. 21 JL first outing, what did i do wrong?

    Getting it into 4hi and 4lo is a painful experience the first few times.
  18. JL Wrangler vs New Ford Bronco

    So which is it, Wrangler buyers don't know how many cylinders they have or these options would entice them? Can't have it both ways. The buyers that will look that deep into Bronco specs are outliers anyway, and are currently building SAS Tacomas and 4Runners, 'to be different', and not run a...
  19. JL Wrangler vs New Ford Bronco

    You’re still not getting it. Might as well throw in the Santa Fe and Crosstrek as competitors. They all have 4 doors and enough ground clearance to get you to the campsite.
  20. 100% Battery Range

    The wrangler is going to have a massive difference between city/Highway range due to aerodynamics. EPA measures a mix, and if you’re all city/sub 45mph, you’ll easily beat EPA estimates. Winter will give you depressing range estimates.
