  1. Has anyone hauled 8ft lumber in their JL 4dr

    I made a "rack" out of some spare 2x4s. The thickness of two 2x4s is perfect to get the lumber above the windshield and the bumps on the sport bar. The ratchet strap keep everything locked down and not moving. I made the front cross bar 54" and the rear 53 1/4" so they tuck inside the plastic...
  2. Steering issues cured by installing new Steering gear box! (per TSB 08-074-20)

    So 5 and a half weeks later, I get the call, parts are in, you can come in tomorrow and get the tsb performed. I dropped off the Jeep yesterday, walked 1.5 miles to work, and in the afternoon I got the dreaded, "please call us back VM" instead of the "your Jeep is ready VM". I called, "They...
  3. Dreaming of wider black MOAB Wheels with better offset!

    @Quadratec has to be nearing completion on their private label wider version of the rubicon stock rims. The last estimate I had from them (given in June) was "shooting for a late September release". Given the current economic climate, it is not surprising they slipped. I would assume the black...
  4. Soft Top window blowing out

    I wouldn't worry about it too much. There are thousands of JLs on the road with a soft top. Most of them haven't had a window go out. I had one blow at 400 miles, I now have 13,000 miles without it happening. Jeep covered the window, so I wasn't out any money. I now follow the order the manual...
  5. Synergy Jeep JL / JLU / JT Front Track Bar and Sector Shaft Brace

    After about 2-3K miles I tried to grease the brace and I couldn't get it to take any grease. I pulled it off, and you guessed it, bearing had rotated. I contacted Synergy via the email address on their site. Scott had me provide my receipt to verify the purchase, and he shipped me out the new...
  6. Steering issues cured by installing new Steering gear box! (per TSB 08-074-20)

    Farrish Jeep in Fairfax, VA said they needed to inspect before they could order the parts. Yesterday, they inspected and agreed to order the tsb parts. They did not give me any trouble for my 2" lift. After cautioning me when I made the appt that the parts would take 4-6 weeks, the adviser...

  9. Synergy Jeep JL / JLU / JT Front Track Bar and Sector Shaft Brace

    Are you referring to the gap caused by the extra metal around the holes for clearance? See pics below. Once installed it would look like a gap, but really the smaller metal portion sits flat against the frame. I was able to install the upper part of the brace flush to the frame.
  10. Synergy MFG 2" Lift Starter System

    Poly Performance is the sister company of Synergy, they share the same address. I bought mine from them. I used the chat feature and asked if they had any discounts. ;)
  11. Virginia - Peters Mill Run / Taskers Gap trails reopening today

    Yay! I cannot wait to get out there and check off my closest badge of honor trail.
  12. Synergy Jeep JL / JLU / JT Front Track Bar and Sector Shaft Brace

    Tolerances on the axle side joint for the front track bar are tight. Two synergy sticker easily fit, three do not. No noise here though.

    She turns 12 later this year.

    Vizsla's are fun! Ours is on the older side so she has gotten rather tame compared to the high octane puppy phase. i don't know if we could have handled two at the same time.

    Our vizsla has been enjoying riding in the back of the Jeep.
  16. Synergy Jeep JL / JLU / JT Front Track Bar and Sector Shaft Brace

    I have all of 20-30 miles on mine. So I can't make any bold claims about success. The one aspect I did like about green grease was it supposed water resistance (marine use). That seemed like a good thing on parts that could be submersed during a water crossing. One thing I do like about this...
  17. Synergy Jeep JL / JLU / JT Front Track Bar and Sector Shaft Brace

    I probably should have waited for synergy grease, or redline cv-2. But my parts arrived, I had a free weekend, and Amazon could get Green Grease to my door the next day. So I am using it. I ran some around the inside of the brass bushing with my finger before installing, then hit it with the...

  19. Synergy MFG 2" Lift Starter System

    What offset is everyone aiming for with this 2" lift? So many threads on the forum push 4.5" backspacing, and even some manufacturers have it on their websites. The table from Synergy seems to imply closer to stock is better (see below). AEV made JL specific rims with higher backspacing (~5.7)...
  20. Synergy MFG 2" Lift Starter System

    1. The rear track bar bracket was back ordered 5 weeks, So they gave me an adjustable rear track bar instead. I may try and add the bracket later to level out the bar. 2. Since I used an adj bar, there was no cutting/drilling. 3. I used the stock rear links up front with the included front...
