  1. New Sahara

    Oh, so they changed needles and lines to green? Interesting.
  2. New Sahara

    Green cluster display? Mine's full color. Or are you talking about the radio, which can be customized?
  3. Tilt steering column lever cloth cover appears unfinished.

    Yeah, that just needs pushed in. When you sew things you do it wrong side out. Apparently that didn't get flipped around (or pushed in) after it was made. Weird, but not an issue. Just shove it back into the hole so it's right side out.
  4. List of 285/70-17 C range tires?

    I got those on my Sahara with the optional rims. Great tires. Very quiet, smooth ride, and they grip well. I never had any problems with traction, but then again I don't do any extreme off roading either. For a daily tire that is capable off road, I think they're a good choice. I only...
  5. Can I fit 5 Rubicon Rims & Tires in the back of my JLU Sahara?

    Yes they'll fit with someone in the passenger seat. When I bought my 34's (285/75/17) I drove about an hour to get them. They fit fine with the rear seat folded down. My wife didn't have to adjust her seat at all. A set of stock 33 will fit without issues even with someone in the front...
  6. BILLET SILVER Wrangler JL Club

    I've got the same color combos. It's one of the things that I really liked about the Sahara. The color matched fenders look great. I like color matched roofs too, but I opted for the black roof just to break up all the silver. I think it's the perfect blend.
  7. BILLET SILVER Wrangler JL Club

    I doubt they're getting rid of it. When I ordered mine I wanted Mojito, but it wasn't able to be ordered, and there was talk that it wasn't going to be anymore. As we all know, it did become available for order again. Although, by the time it was, I was already waiting for my Billet JL to...
  8. Does this camera system exist

    Obviously, you'd want a camera that doesn't have a screen. Mine is like that and is very small. It could easily be put into the grille. Although you may consider making a plexiglass box to shield it from weather and debris. Here's a photo of mine for size reference.
  9. Does this camera system exist

    Or you can get a dash cam that allows live playback on a cell phone via Bluetooth. I have a dirt cheap one that does exactly that so I'm sure most systems do too. Mount it in the grille, bumper or where ever you want it. Then you could use one of those dash mounts for your phone and view the...
  10. List of 285/70-17 C range tires?

    LOL. It's definitely something I look for, but we have snow on the ground for several months every year. Not something I ever considered to be a concern in the south. I guess a good snow rated tire is beneficial even if you only need them a few times a year.
  11. How do you get your dog into the Jeep

    I use an old set of hot tub steps to load our Rottie. He's 7 years old and tore his CCL (dog version of the ACL) about 2 years ago. Although he wants to jump in/out I don't think it's a good idea so I make him walk up/down steps like an old dog. He feels so uncool around the other dogs. Our...
  12. List of 285/70-17 C range tires?

    Is that an issue in New Mexico?
  13. List of 285/70-17 C range tires?

    I recently swapped from an E range tire to a C range (Wildpeak). Man what a difference. I never considered the E rough, but the C is noticalby smoother. Definitely a good choice if you don't need the E.
  14. Fist Look at Gecko JL Wrangler

    Nice comparison. I like both. Ah, who am I kidding, I like Mojito and Sarge too. Sarge would be my first pick but the bold greens are nice too.
  15. tires for the 17 x 7.5 stock rims

    285/75/17 is a 34 x 11 tire giving you an extra 1" of 'lift' and they will have an approved rim width that includes the stock 7.5" As noted by Mike though, a lot of people run 35 x 12.5 so they'll work too.
  16. Fist Look at Gecko JL Wrangler

    Don't get me wrong, it's still cool, but it's not really "new". Just new to the JL and it has a new name.
  17. Fist Look at Gecko JL Wrangler

    Um.... Isn't that just Hyper green again?
  18. First time Jeep owner, looking for lift advice

    Yeah, I've had multiple Rams (and other trucks) over the years, and never really felt much of a different with tire sizes. I didn't even really notice much of a difference in the Grand Cherokee either, although I went form the stock 20's (Overland) to 18's as well as a slightly bigger tire...
  19. First time Jeep owner, looking for lift advice

    As for other size recommendations, I do have one if you decide to keep your 17's. If you want to keep the width down, do like I did and get a 34" tire. The options aren't quite as plentiful as 35's but there are still some great options. I opted for 285/75/17 which is 33.9" which is only...
