Check out car complaints. com.. you will see a number under the nhtsa complaints for Jl's that is astonishing. I believe it was 460+ last time I checked. The steering issues aren't isolated and you will notice a hit in reliability coming from a Toyota.

I ended up trading my JL in because of this issue... can't believe this grew to a 200 page thread. It was at maybe 20 when I traded her in out of frustation. Still lurking in case they ever get it together as I really liked the design of the JL.
Looking forward to hearing more about your mileage on the Kings. I had a pair of OEM style Kings on my last truck and they were EVERY bit worth the money. Kings fit and finish is top notch along with the performance.
Congrats and love that you didn't cheap out!
Haha true... a dope head doesn’t have the logic left to keep them from breaking $500 worth of stuff to get to that 3.55 in change.
Last week my best friend had his truck broke into off Ventura Blvd to steal his satellite radio. This is a 14 year old beaten truck with a Sirius...
These points plus they are cool and easy to see.

My ESS also works with top off. As I have driven it more and more, it has become VERY dependent on my peddle application and there is a defined notch/area deep in the brake where I can feel it engage. I pretty much have to intentionally cut it off with the brake now and actually like the feature...
Cool thanks for the replies guys! I was having bad visions of lowering the top from high up with ratchet straps as the strap material tried to do the things where it slips and folds then binds etc.. Thanks for clearing that up!
I sit mine on a three moving blankets folded to match the shape of the roof standing up on its back edge. Getting it off is easy , back on not so much.
For those of you using cheap ratchet straps ( cheap piques my interest) how do you lower the top slowly/evenly. I’ve only ratcheted things...
Yep no problem doing that....just does it in the car wash :whatsgoingon:
If you have ever reversed with the door open (it doesn't let you if you haven't tried) it's the same result. Not sure why the rolling in neutral 100ft kicks it in, but it does it fairly early on in the wash. Displays a...
