  1. 2019 Jeep Wrangler | Long-Term Wrap Up Review by KBB

    Unless you own it, pay for it, maintain it and so on, it is just a test drive. Even if it is six months. Lucky you that get paid for telling people what they want to hear. The rest of us, we live it. We love it. Because it's a lifestyle for us, we will be there with our JLs, JTs ,JKs, TJs and so...
  2. JL Reliability Opinions/Thoughts

    I love mine. My wife loves it too. Never any issues, some minor recalls, whatever. You can Lego out on this vehicle or leave it factory. But one thing is for certain: Better resale value than Toyota. I owned Toyotas in the past and would not touch one with a 20 ft pole. Had my share of Wranglers...
  3. When did you do your first oil change.....?

    I only use 0W20 for now. I don't know there is much difference with viscosity and such, but I only have 20k on mine. Maybe later in life after 75k could be, but not now. I use Quaker state synthetic and Mopar or KN filter(whichever is less). Normally, Walmart has it at a half way decent price. :jk:
  4. When did you do your first oil change.....?

    I think I did one of the freebies. But I don't trust dealerships. Knowing that I did it myself and getting oil and filter is just a bonding experience for me and my jeep. Then I go to Oreillys and dump the old stuff for free. And its really easy to do too. I enjoy it quite a bit. Check fluids...
  5. What is the average age of a JL Rubicon owner

    Polls are like harlots. The more you pay, the more they make you feel good. I don't buy polls. But they are fun, because when you thought you were up, you get obliterated. LOL. And there goes your medula oblongata...
  6. When did you do your first oil change.....?

    That is great. I will search more and get some coupons too. Hopefully some good will come my way. And I thought I was getting a bargain...:LOL:
  7. What is the average age of a JL Rubicon owner

    I am a dinosaur from the last ice age. About to be 59 but feel like 30. I got a 2018 JLUR in Mojito! that I ordered and received back in Oct 2018. Before that I had a 2017 Rubicon JK but when JL made its debut, I had to have it. My wife and I love it and just finished redoing our second house in...
  8. When did you do your first oil change.....?

    Rotella is mucho dinero:puke:
  9. When did you do your first oil change.....?

    Just checked engine oil yesterday and fluids and its all good down there. Just ordered my 2" lift and some 315-70-17 's just for GP(general purpose for you landlubbers). Next will come the stubby front bumper and the rear bumper with tire carrier. The auto steps should follow shortly thereafter...
  10. When did you do your first oil change.....?

    I used KN filters before and it is a very high quality product. The oil I use is Quaker state because is less expensive and has all the SAE bells and whistles. I know Mobil one is highest quality but I like to save a buck here and there for the next upgrade.:jk:OlllllllO
  11. When did you do your first oil change.....?

    I got 20k miles and change every 5k. OEM filter and Quaker state 0w-20. No issues. 29 smackaroos at Walmart and have the wrench and oil disposal can readily available. Takes 30 minutes and the satisfaction of knowing it is actually done. I do not trust dealers for maintenance. Just for recalls...
  12. When did you do your first oil change.....?

    Is there a requirement for diff and TC fluid change like you do it or is just a precautionary measure you are taking? I have a 2018 JLUR with 8spd and have yet to change fluids. Mine runs good and I have 17500 miles on it. But here is the catch, I'm going to trade for a Rubicon diesel by years...
  13. First real world diesel rubicon mpg test

    Do you use synthetic or conventional oil? I use synthetic 0W20 and never had any issues. I keep my receipts for the oil and filter and keep a minilog of the date and mileage. So being retired, gives me something to do.
  14. 2020 JL Rubicon 3.6L Petrol - Fuel Economy

    Well, I'm glad the fires are being controlled. I went to dealership yesterday and was very tempted to order a diesel. The third gen ecodiesel sounds great and FCA worked out the bugs, so I am about to order one. It takes about 4 months to build. I'm buttering up my wife so I can get this new...
  15. JL Wrangler Rubicon EcoDiesel is Four Wheeler’s Pick For 2020 SUV of the Year

    Thank you very much. It is just a matter of preference I guess. But the notion of being able to get more mpg and low end torque is very appealing to me. I like my Rubicon JLU, but I've been juggling the idea of a diesel for a couple of years now. The mgr at Jeep called me and said to send him a...
  16. JL Wrangler Rubicon EcoDiesel is Four Wheeler’s Pick For 2020 SUV of the Year

    Im thinking to trade my 3.6 for a diesel. I'm just asking for an honest opinion from an ED owner. Do you like it and is it reliable? Thanks in advance
  17. 2020 JL Rubicon 3.6L Petrol - Fuel Economy

    Do you get diesel JL in Australia? I have seen videos of some off-roaders with the diesel Patrol and Land cruisers down there and it looks awesome. Hopefully fires died down...
  18. 2020 JL Rubicon 3.6L Petrol - Fuel Economy

    What are government requirements for you down under? Do you have to use 91 octane? Here in the USA we use 87 and it runs good. It is also less expensive. Do you have access to 87 octane?
  19. 2020 JL Rubicon 3.6L Petrol - Fuel Economy
