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

    I agree with you-it’s NOT a fix for a weak pressure plate/clutch assembly. It’s a bandaid, designed NOT to cover a wound, but to keep you from going out side and scraping your elbows.

  5. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    I’m traveling so my answer is going to be a bit brief here but you might look at the following two items. One, if they fully repainted the doors and removed the rubber seals and weatherstripping around the doors, they may not have been reinstalled properly or perhaps some of the connection...
  6. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    While salt Is a known “carcinogen” for road going metal, I really don’t think that’s the main issue here. I own 12 vehicles altogether, including two BMWs that are seven and 14 years old, respectively, and a 13-year-old Ford, that have been driven daily through mid western winters with...

I’ve just over 4K miles on my 15 month old JL Sahara and have bubbling on 4 doors and the tailgate My vehicle is kept in a climate controlled garage, in the Indianapolis area, has never seen winter roads and has only Been rained once or...

    The key to doing this right, is to completely ieliminate any Prior corrosion (use new parts Is best way). And the isolation must to be perfect, whether by gasket or appropriate chemical treatment/primer.
  9. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    I too thought bushings its gaskets would help, assuming hinge was steel and door panel aluminum. But the door side of the hinge is also aluminum. I’m guessing the annode/cathode galvanic reaction is due to the steel bolts or hinge-pillars.

    Well, I too have the $1300 Alpine audio upgrade, and yes, its pretty feeble compared to other mfg upgrades and aftermarket components. But that looks like a good deal when I compare my $50k JL Sahara to the deal I just cut on my bronco badlands for 26k. :headbang:
  12. Indiana Free NIB (with slight blem) JL JT Quadratec front door sill guards.

    Hi folks. Just received my Quadratec front door sill guards, and the driver side had about a 3/4 inch long light scratch. Called CS & they replaced them immediately and said “keep or discard the other ones“. Big KUDOS to Quadratec CS. Trying to Pay it forward here I’m in the northern Indy...

    Nice loaner. I got a white Dodge mini van. That’s ok tho, as I also got a 2020 Porsche Cayenne loaner as one of my p-cars is in for new pcm/Nav unit after a lightning hit.

    THATS the spirt of adventure we’d expect from a wrangler owner.:) And looking out for the children is the responsible thing to do. And, if you’re young and in good health, some term life insurance might be a good idea. If fact, may I take out a policy also? I wish you all the best, but a small...

    Does anyone know if 1100° is within a normal operating temperature for a pressure plate and clutch? If so, then to 4 lows point above, If there’s a 1% defect rate in the pressure plate component, they should be traceable to batches/lots and vehicles. If 1100 degrees is not within normal...
