  1. 3.0L Diesel Dyno

    Here's the funny thing. I just went from 18,000 miles in the Ram (480 lb/ft) straight into the Jeep. The Jeep doesn't feel slower at all and it doesn't feel weaker towing at all. In fact, it actually feels just slightly stronger. Now, there is somewhere around 300 lbs less weight with the...
  2. 3.0L Diesel Dyno

    The only difference is the axle. Why would they derate it that bad because of the axle? It's not like the AdvanTek D44 is weak.
  3. Who has taken their JL on a long road trip and what was your experience like?!

    From the JKU to the JLU in terms of long road trips I was sorely disappointed. The 2" that they shaved out of the JL hip room was very noticeable. Overall interior passenger volume was also reduced and that is noticeable as well. The main thing that sucks is that on JL they moved the center...
  4. New JL Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    I remember 3 years ago now when I was complaining about how horrendous the handling/steering was on the JL and everybody told me I was crazy, and that it was "a Jeep thing". Funny how far this has ended up going. And the sad part is here we are 3 years later and it's STILL a problem. I just...
  5. Rear Axle Replacement 42k Miles

    This could be unrelated, but there was discussion about the vent tube cap not releasing pressure on these axles. I checked mine brand spanking new off the delivery truck and sure enough, I could pull that vent cap off the end of the tube and try to blow or suck air through it with NO luck. It...
  6. 2022 Models - Press Release Dates

    That's completely the opposite of what I saw on all the dyno sheets of stock engines. The 2.0T runs out of power quickly and starts gasping for air. The torque curve is also very "peaky" and bell shaped. The 3.6L has a torque curve that's as flat and long as a Kansas highway. Granted, PEAK...
  7. Would you switch to a jt?? Why, or why not?

    That's the key thing that a lot of people don't understand. From the rear glass back, there is not ONE single part that the Gladiator shares with the Wrangler. It's a totally different vehicle. Frame, suspension, axle, shocks, materials used in the bed, tail lights, the way the hitch mounts...
  8. 2022 Models - Press Release Dates

    I ordered with him May 4 and picked my Jeep up June 5. They were the nicest people I've ever met, and it was the best vehicle buying experience in my entire life....and I've done a ton of car deals. Yeah pickup trucks in general are selling for insane amounts of cash right now. I gave...
  9. Would you switch to a jt?? Why, or why not?

    After 4 Wranglers, once the Gladiator came out I'm on my second one and will never look back. - Can be configured to literally 100% more payload capacity, which means you can legally carry a family AND your gear. Also means you can legally tow more than 1,000 lbs. and take your family along...
  10. 3.0L Diesel Dyno

    Yeah I fully understand WHY they capped the torque in the Jeep. What I'm asking is HOW. I guess it either has to be air or fuel, so I'm guessing it's a boost pressure limit, or they're cutting the fuel to maintain that 442 lb/ft. And, 442 is a weird number, so I'm sure it's just the point...
  11. Testing out an Edge Products Insight CTS3 Digital Gauge Monitor. It's got potential!

    I'm rocking the Scan Guage II. I love the size of it. Fits nicely in the tiny JL/JT interior. My only gripe is that apparently boost pressure readout is capped at 22.7 PSI. I don't know what's up with that.
  12. (unseated) fuses?

    This basically sums it up. I'm shocked they're able to find enough people willing to work to even assemble Jeeps at all these days. Here in KY where I live, you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a "Now Hiring!" sign. "Walk in interviews daily!" You just cannot get this lazy generation...
  13. AFE intakes: Rapid Induction vs Momentum HD

    I'm looking at these two intake kits for the EcoDiesel. From what I can see in the few pictures there are of them online, the only difference seems to be that the Momentum HD has a fully encased filter, whereas the Rapid Induction utilizes the bottom section of the OE airbox and it is then open...
  14. 3.0L Diesel Dyno

    So, look at that torque curve, or lack thereof, from 1,400 RPM to 2,800 RPM. That's not natural. Obviously Jeep is artificially capping the torque there. The Ram version of the engine, despite making the same horsepower, doesn't have a torque plateau like that. So my question is, WHAT is...
  15. Recommended Dealers List

    Just picked up my new JT from Gupton today. Best experience buying a car in my life. A+. Absolutely fantastic.
  16. Billet Silver - Gone

    Per comments from Mark Allen, the replacement color is Earl Grey. It's the color they used on the Gladiator Far Out concept vehicle.
  17. Recommended Dealers List

    I'm a 3 hour drive from Gupton Motors and they are doing pre-delivery inspection on my order today. It was delivered to them yesterday, exactly 29 days after the order went in. All I'm waiting on now is for Daniel to pull up my credit app and finish the paperwork. As you said, he's busier...
  18. Some colors cancelled?

    Right, silvers always sell REALLY well. I'm shocked that Billet is going away, but that lends even more credibility to the idea that Earl Grey will replace it, via Mark Allen's comments in a recent interview this week. Personally, while I feel that Jeep needs more variety, I do like the Earl...
