  1. New Bronco on display at Costco

    The "Bronco" and the "Bronco Sport" are two totally different vehicles. The Bronco is built to compete with the Wrangler. The Bronco Sport is a SUV built to compete with the Jeep Renegade, and many other SUV's. I feel Ford made a big mistake with the naming of these two vehicles, which are two...
  2. Washed my Keyfob

    I would also add, Step 3-1/2: While it is totally taken apart, use a hair dryer on low heat setting for a few minutes, to be sure it is really dry.
  3. First Wrangler Wash - PITA

    Pick up a 10", soft bristle, car/truck wash brush at your local Flying J or Pilot truck stop. Make sure it has a threaded hole to accept a standard wooden broom handle. Works great to get into all the small nooks and crannies, as well as on the entire Jeep. Use mild car wash soap in a bucket...
  4. Rubicon Owners, have you waterproofed your Sway Bar connector?

    Dilectric Grease is your friend! Disconnect the plug going to the sway bar disconnect mechanism, and overstuff both the male and female ends with Dielectric Grease. I had a 2011 Rubicon and immersed the Jeep in water, then the sway bay disconnect started giving me problems. After a few weeks...

    I'm on my 5th Wrangler. 2002 2-door Sport, 2006 2-door Rubicon, 2011 2-door Rubicon, 2016 2-door Rubicon, and now a 2021 2-door Rubicon. Although there have been many "issues" along the way - no regrets.
  6. 2.0T Only has ONE battery?

    It's on page 169 of my owner's manual, but... It states: Secondary Battery Your vehicle may be equipped with a secondary battery used to power the Stop/Start system and the 12 Volt vehicle electrical system. That says "MAY BE EQUIPPED". It does not tell me if my exact Wrangler has an...
  7. 2.0T Only has ONE battery?

    Sorry, the owner's manual DOES NOT explain this!
  8. 2.0T Only has ONE battery?

    It's a LOT more than "a little digging". It is a pain in the neck to get to the small auxiliary battery location to see if one is there or not.
  9. 2.0T Only has ONE battery?

    And just exactly where is this info in the owner' manual? I can't find it.
  10. How to drive in snow and ice, for dummies...

    Absolutely it should be left "on" during normal snow/ice driving! Now if you are stuck and stationary, you probably want it turned off in most circumstances.
  11. 3.6L V6 24V VVT eTorque Engine vs. 3.6L V6 24V VVT Engine Upg I With Start Stop

    Not sure if these would be real world numbers, but according to the Fed ( ), the E-torque, 3.6L with 8 speed auto gets 1 mpg better City, 1 mpg better Highway, and 1 mpg better combined, when compared to the same...
  12. How to drive in snow and ice, for dummies...

    For all those folks who said 4WD helps you go but does not help you stop... Part-time 4WD absolutely helps you stop quicker and in a shorter distance. Please watch these two videos:
  13. New Rubicon. Bizarre safety feature.

    Here is a complete explanation of how "auto park" works on a JL Wrangler. You can easily disconnect the door wiring to disable it.
  14. Picked Up my 2021 Willy’s...

    That is ridiculous! Take it back and have them wire it correctly onto one switch.
  15. Top 10 things Jeep should have done

    How about slide-opening, rear side windows as an option on both the 2-door and 4-door hardtop models? On my 2-door, I get tremendous wind buffeting when the driver and passenger side windows are open at freeway speeds. Sliding open rear side windows would eliminate that.
  16. Top 10 things Jeep should have done

    That would be a fantastic option, or standard equipment. I also have a 2-door and sometimes sleep in the Jeep when I camp.
  17. Smittybilt Gen2 X20 Comp 12K with Factory Steel Bumper?

    What winch cover is that?
