  1. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    That is one hell of a first lift kit, mine was probably some extended shackles...10 jeeps ago.
  2. Anyone running 37s on stock Rubicon wheels?

    Our "poser" has been posed all over moab, tillamook, big bear, the Sierra Nevadas, deserts in CA, AZ, and NV, but spacer lifts don't work.
  3. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    Pulled her up on the new trailer for a test fit. I'll strap it down and make a test run on the freeway this weekend. Gotta get the prep work out of the way for our Ouray trip July 2nd. Ignore the slammed stance of the truck, air ride in entry/exit mode. 6" drop hitch will be here today so the...
  4. Who has taken their JL on a long road trip and what was your experience like?!

    There's no way I'd commute 150 miles a day in the Jeep, not for comfort but for the rapidly wearing out my off road toy. The fuel savings of any of the dozens of 30+ mpg vehicles available today would easily cover the payment on the 2nd vehicle. Averaging a generous 20 mpg at $4/gal you're daily...
  5. Clickbait Title: DOES ESS WORK?! You won't BELIEVE what happened on tank 105! (Fuel Consumption Analysis: 2 years, 122 tanks, 30k miles)

    Ess is like title 24 lighting requirements in CA. It makes the regulators feel like they are doing something. The added complexity, cost to install, additional components, and increased maintenance/repair items make it a wash at best. Use it if you want, don't use it if you don't. On hot...
  6. Who has taken their JL on a long road trip and what was your experience like?!

    Our jlur has taken several 1,000+ mile road trips. Ride is comfortable, handles more than well enough to set the cruise at 85mph and burn up the miles, and has plenty of power to pass even on the steepest mountain grades. No it’s not a sport car or a luxury car. No it’s nowhere near as roomy as...
  7. Clickbait Title: DOES ESS WORK?! You won't BELIEVE what happened on tank 105! (Fuel Consumption Analysis: 2 years, 122 tanks, 30k miles)

    If mpg was enough of a concern for me to put in the time and effort that went in to the OP’s study, I wouldn’t be driving a Jeep. ESS or not, Jeep and fuel economy are like oil and water. That being said, our 2019 jlur on 37’s is our most fuel efficient vehicle, averaging 17mpg. My 2017 rebel...
  8. (unseated) fuses?

    The ones in my ram were hard to pull even with the puller, even though they weren't fully seated? Could have something to do with being in there for 90,000 miles though.
  9. (unseated) fuses?

    I think you are the exception more than the rule. I’ve seen dozens and dozens of people post that they found their fuses not fully seated but very few like yourself that actually had any kind of issue arise. Not to mention, with the complexity of our drivetrain control systems you are assuming a...
  10. (unseated) fuses?

    I think the issue is grossly over stated. Can you push the fuses in further than they come set from the factory? Absolutely. Are they truly loose (enough to not make the electrical connection)? Not in my experience. I read about the “issue” on the forum and decided to check. After 30k+ miles...
  11. Patagonia 38s with stock JL wheels?

    The 13.50 will be less likely to push off the bead as they are seated by outward pressure and have to be forced inward to come off in my opinion.
  12. Patagonia 38s with stock JL wheels?

    This topic gets beat to death repeatedly, according to the internet wider than 11.5” won’t work. Don’t tell my 37x12.50’s as they might suddenly fly off the rim after 15k miles, countless trails at 12-15 psi, and desert runs with speeds over 80 mph in the dirt. I’ve never had a problem in 20+...
  13. For those going with 37s, are you regearing??

    I'm not talking mudding per se, there are a couple spots on the Rubicon where you have to go through the mud and a couple water crossings (especially early in the season). You may encounter snow as well. Same goes for most of the Sierra Nevada trails in the spring or fall. I'm not saying...
  14. For those going with 37s, are you regearing??

    In some cases it's better than the hi lift. In others it's useless. Try righting a rig that's flopped on its side with a bottle jack. Bottle jack in a mud hole? Even if you could find solid ground, have fun with your snorkel getting under the rig to place it. Not only can I jack the jeep...
  15. For those going with 37s, are you regearing??

    I like the location enough I added rod couplings to lift it up higher for clearance when we added the winch. I never liked the idea of trying to wrestle the jack of the hood in the middle of a mud hole, too much potential for 1 slip to cause some serious body/paint damage. The roll bar mounts...
  16. Any tips/tricks/words of advice/wisdom for a newbie?

    Get out and use it is my only advice. Doesn't matter if it's dirt roads, the beach, or even top off mall cruising. We've owned and wheeled a dozen jeeps over the last 20 years and still chose to keep our 2019 jlur stock for the first year. We still took it out on mountain trails, but enjoyed the...
  17. Jeep Badge of Honor App missing trails

    On the bright side, I got the badge requested email too. It could be golden spike, rocky gap, or back way to crown king, but hopefully all 3. If they got overwhelmed with the new trails and new badge requests and decided to pull them so they could catch up, it would have taken seconds to...
  18. Jeep Badge of Honor App missing trails

    That was my point, they all work at the same company but have the same "not my department, not my problem attitude". If a department at the company I work for was completely unresponsive and multiple customers informed me of the problem, I'd reach out to someone above that department and let...
  19. Jeep Badge of Honor App missing trails

    The worst part about the whole situation is the lack of communication on Jeep's part. The BOH group doesn't return emails or phone calls. There's 0 response from them in any way. @JeepCares responded to my message, but only to tell me they have nothing to do with BOH. That's the same response...
  20. Hemi swap or Supercharger kit?

    I've seen stock pentastars dyno around 250hp to the wheels, making 450hp an 80% increase. 11 pounds of boost would get you right in that ball park (77% or 7% per 1 psi if you know anything about forced induction). How long will the stock bottom end hold up to 11 psi? Who knows, but our turbo 4...
