  1. No Squatting JL's in NC

    I cannot stop laughing at these two comments being together
  2. Just got home from Bronco event...

    The chip shortage is an enormous factor. Ford has thousands upon thousands of complete F-150’s sitting around just waiting on chips.
  3. 2022 Rubicons will come with optional 35s, beadlocks, upgraded tire carrier

    Bronco Raptor on 37” tires has already been seen multiple times.
  4. 2022 Rubicons will come with optional 35s, beadlocks, upgraded tire carrier

    Love to see it. I’m curious if they will add some deeper gearing for those bad boys. 4.56 or 4.88 would be absolutely amazing from the factory.
  5. 2018 JL Wrangler Engine Bearing Failure

    I’ve heard quite a few respected mechanics say that the 10k oil changes are bullshit. I stick with 3k on my conventional change for my jk.
  6. 2018 JL Wrangler Engine Bearing Failure

    Back in the 3.8 JK days bearings caused a lot of motors to go out, but nearly all of them were from an oil consumption problem. Curious if you ever checked the oil level?
  7. How does the JL ride and drive compared to the JK?

    I think my biggest complaint about my JK is how it “tracks” the grooves in the highway. I have zero issues on some roads but others are a mess. Interesting. My 2010 JK drives amazingly for what it is, I’ve even had other Jeep guys comment on how well it rides. (Probably because it’s basically...
  8. Just got home from Bronco event...

    I will never understand why people are paying these insane prices for the 2015+ Tacoma. They are uncomfortable, get terrible mileage, expensive, and cramped (especially the useless back seat.) Now I get putting up with all that for the older Tacomas to get the bulletproof drivetrains but the...
  9. Is open Jeep a dying art?

    Personally out here in AZ I’ve been seeing a ton of jeeps with roof and doors off.
  10. Just got home from Bronco event...

    Hell’s gate is probably a harder obstacle than 90% of Wranglers or Broncos will ever do.
  11. Just got home from Bronco event...

    One of the 4WP engineers posted a bunch of info about lifting Bronco. Basically the non Sasquatch Broncos will take 33’s with no lift, and 35’s with just a spacer. On Sasquatch Broncos, 35’s are indeed the limit with the stock coilovers. 37’s require new coilovers, and 40’s won’t fit in the...
  12. Just got home from Bronco event...

    The 4Runner V6 is anemic for sure but man is it reliable. Even a few hundred billion years from now when our solar system is dark and cold there will probably be a 1GR-FE still chugging along out there somewhere. (Along with a 4.0 AMC I6, a Ford 4.9, and a Cummins 12 valve)
  13. Just got home from Bronco event...

    Just my thoughts from what I understand. From a performance standpoint, the Bronco’s suspension will be best left stock unless you’re about to drop $10k on basically a complete overhaul. Lauren Healy talks about this in one of his ride alongs that he is going to keep his personal Bronco...
  14. Century Club 100K Miles

    Everything I’ve heard about the 3.6 has been excellent reliability wise for the later JK’s and JL’s. (A few friends of mine have earlier 3.6’s like 2013-2015ish and they have all had issues with the cooling system.) I’m sure it will easily get you another 200k.
  15. JL Wrangler vs New Ford Bronco

    I’d be curious what the average conquest % is for a new vehicle. 60% sounds extremely high to me. Also if Ford keeps this up, even the sport selling 100k+ units per year is going to be a cash cow for them. I already am seeing them all over the place, they clearly knocked it out of the park for...
  16. JL Wrangler vs New Ford Bronco

    No doubt it took a lot of inspiration from Wrangler. I heard the Bronco described like this probably a year or 18 months ago. “Imagine if Ford had never discontinued the 1st gen Bronco, and instead kept building and improving on the design just like Jeep did with the CJ. If you pretend like...
  17. JL Wrangler vs New Ford Bronco

    I don’t even know what your point is anymore. My point about the cylinder count is that what’s “under the hood” is not really what people are knowledgeable about anymore. People may not know anything about suspension architecture/body on frame/approach angles but they know an “off road” vehicle...
  18. JL Wrangler vs New Ford Bronco

    So being body on frame, removable roof, front and rear diff locks, selectable 4x4, low gearing, good approach and departure angles, large factory tires, removable doors, optional manual transmission, and a large aftermarket count for absolutely nothing? So are those features not integral to the...
  19. JL Wrangler vs New Ford Bronco

    Probably 50% of newer Wrangler owners couldn’t even tell you the cylinder count of their engine. Let alone the front suspension architecture. Like I said, the closest comparison is Gladiator vs Tacoma. And if you don’t think those two are cross shopped or direct competitors then no vehicle...
  20. JL Wrangler vs New Ford Bronco

    Dealership reps start driving them next week in Austin to get trained for sales. They are going to do that for the next month, customers will get their hands on them at the beginning of July is my understanding. Those are two vehicles that aren’t even in the same segment. The closest analogy...
