  1. New 2021 Hella Yella Willy’s (w/ origin-story) - Sarge JLR Pics Added

    Adding pics of the companion-Jeep... my new JL Rubicon in Sarge Green! Yes, I had to seat about half the fuses. Yes, the tires were over-inflated (like, 43)... and yes, once aired down to 35 it rides smooth and tracks well. LOVE the tan interior with the Sarge... had some Weathertech floor...
  2. New 2021 Hella Yella Willy’s (w/ origin-story) - Sarge JLR Pics Added

    Had the dealer air-down to 37 on the lot and yes... like a dozen of the fuses needed seating. Did that on the lot as well... both things before the wife drove it. Didn’t want anything interfering with her falling in love with it. Which she did. Hard. As predicted, now she won’t let me...

  5. New 2021 Hella Yella Willy’s (w/ origin-story) - Sarge JLR Pics Added

    My first Jeep was an early first-year ‘18 JLR 6MT. It spent literally months in the shop before FCA bought it back from me. Despite that I rolled the dice again and got into a ‘19 JLUS 6MT. Good Jeep. Totaled it last year. The Trooper told me I rolled it 3 or 4 times. Walked away without a...
  6. STOP ORDER on all Manual Jeeps [Update: software flash fix arrives in March]

    Ordered on 12/15 (‘21 JLR 6MT with brown leather, Cold Weather, Tow, Steel Bumpers), was built and in JS on 1/21 and got my window sticker on Saturday (2/27). Now... the wait for shipping... MOS
  7. STOP ORDER on all Manual Jeeps [Update: software flash fix arrives in March]

    Hi y'all. Just got an email from the Stellantis Information Center regarding a Jeep Cares case I opened to find out more about my stalled order ('21 JLR 6MT in JS since 1/21). I assume they are being used by FCA to manage customer interactions in conjunction with Jeep Cares. They state...
  8. STOP ORDER on all Manual Jeeps [Update: software flash fix arrives in March]

    Jeepcares told me yesterday that my 6MT (ordered 12/15, build sheet available 1/21, in JS since 1/22) has a ship ETA of 2/24 and would be sent PRIOR TO the release of the recall fix. No idea if that’s actually correct or not, or if it is whether it’s just because my unit was built on literally...
  9. STOP ORDER on all Manual Jeeps [Update: software flash fix arrives in March]

    BS for sure. All three of my Tacos have been custom ordered, manual, TRD ORs. Find a diff dealer cuz that one employs lying liars who lie. MOS
  10. STOP ORDER on all Manual Jeeps [Update: software flash fix arrives in March]

    Careful with the Taco, dude. I have had three and two of them have been plagued by driveline vibration issues. Won’t even get into the mods I’ve done to chase them out. Anyway... test-drive carefully and if you feel ANY hint of vibe DO NOT sign the papers. MOS
  11. 2019 JLUS 3.6 MT Lower-Engine Noise = Engine Swap!!!

    That is precisely the same noise I have. Do you have a list of specific components they replaced on yours? Also... did that fix the issue? Maybe they're going overboard...
  12. 2019 JLUS 3.6 MT Lower-Engine Noise = Engine Swap!!!

    @Rodeoflyer that was my thought too... been down that road before... had a first-year JL Rubi that FCA bought back from me via lemon law litigation... hoping the engine swap is solid (agree... excellent signs pointing to a good dealership) cuz i love this machine
  13. 2019 JLUS 3.6 MT Lower-Engine Noise = Engine Swap!!!

    Great input... thank you! I will validate that the new engine is brand new vs. used/re-manufactured and that it does not contain any re-manufactured components. Appreciate it... had not thought to check that! mos
  14. 2019 JLUS 3.6 MT Lower-Engine Noise = Engine Swap!!!

    So... around 12.5k miles my Sahara started to exhibit a ticking sound in the engine, mostly between 2.5k and 3.5k rpm in 1st through 3rd. Brought it in a few k miles later and had the local dealership tell me it was my clutch. Sounded odd to me, but I learned about the clutch recall and...
  15. 2019 JLUS 6spd - valve rattle, knock?

    I use BP 93 plus Lucasoil octane booster and all my similar issues went away after two tanks.
  16. Can somebody in the Carolinas give me a good recommendation of a shop I can regear at?

    Talk to Chase at East Coast Gear Supply in the Triangle. Best in the state.
  17. 2019 Sahara 6MT Selec-Trac Confirmed

    Dealer called back today and confirmed they were wrong. No Sahara 6MT with Selec-Trac in ‘19. Sorry for the misinformation.
  18. 2019 Sahara 6MT Selec-Trac Confirmed

    Ok... my bad... I took the person at their word that they spoke with Jeep and it is an available option, then I missed the fact that the option does not appear on the document. Sorry. I will call again tomorrow and get it right OR validate my worst fears... that 2019 availability is still a...
  19. 2019 Sahara 6MT Selec-Trac Confirmed

    Just got off the phone with a local dealer and they have confirmed with Jeep that the 2019 Sahara 6MT is an available build option.
