  1. 2020 Granite Crystal JLUR build

    Once I had the template, it was time to transfer that to 1/4" hardboard - I'd much rather make a mistake there than on the nice 3/4" Baltic Birch that I bought. You can see the painter's tape down on the corners near the end of the doors - even with a cardboard template, things still aren't...
  2. 2020 Granite Crystal JLUR build

    Now that I've had the Jeep for a bit, I've decided to start some interior mods. Specifically, time to delete the rear seat and get happy with putting in a platform/storage area of sorts. l did look at options from Goose Gear and others, and whilst those are great options, I want to spend money...
  3. Michigan Some 2020 JLUR Parts (Bumper, roof rack, skids)

    Sliders/rock rails are sold. Everything else is still here.
  4. Michigan 2020 JLU Rubicon suspension

    I can probably do that - I'd have to see if I can find a proper shipping box for it, though. It's not light and I'd want to be sure it has the best possible chance of getting there undamaged. A swag at shipping shows cost to be around $50 or so. That's with me guessing the box dimensions and...
  5. Michigan 2020 JLU Rubicon suspension

    I do. 68253590AA, 3591AA, 3659AD, and 3660AD
  6. Michigan 2020 JLU Rubicon suspension

    I've upgraded to a Teraflex lift and have my old Rubicon suspension parts up for sale. Had less than 2,500 miles on them when I did the upgrade, so these are basically new. Comes with the shocks, skids, sway bar end links, bumpstops, front LCAs, and the hardware I didn't have to re-use...
  7. Michigan Some 2020 JLUR Parts (Bumper, roof rack, skids)

    I've done some upgrades on my 2020 JLUR (did these when it had aFround 2,500 miles on it). Replaced the front bumper, upgraded the sway bar disconnect skid, sliders, etc. So I've now got these for sale. All bulky, so I'm pretty sure that shipping isn't worth it for anyone. Front bumper -...
  8. 2020 Granite Crystal JLUR build

    We were able to make it out to Colorado and Utah. Unfortunately, my phone died and got wiped, so I lost all of my pics. However, we did Tincup Pass and Red Table Mountain in Colorado. Seven Mile Rim, Tiptoe Through Hells (Hells Revenge without the Gate and Escalator), and the front half of...
  9. 2020 Granite Crystal JLUR build

    Tried the Rough Country roof rack, didn't like it. Maybe it was just me, but the front attachment points (which are a goofy pinch set up) seemed to shift a bit if you hit a hard bump (which is all of the roads up here, all the time). That would mean they were loose enough to thump about when...
  10. 2020 Granite Crystal JLUR build

    The stock bash rails mount up at the holes in the pinch weld plus some welded in nuts on the bottom of the body, 90° off from the pinch weld. That way they're attached both in the vertical and horizontal. I'd rate them strong enough for the occasional scrape up against a rock, holding the...
  11. Porpoising at highway speeds

    Certainly not from CA - and I'm pretty sure Mordor here gets consistently voted into the top worst road states year after year. Hell, that's why we've got the current governor - she promised to fix the roads (and has been mostly stymied on that front, too).
  12. Porpoising at highway speeds

    I'm hella familiar with the crap roads here - and I've been referring to this state as Mordor since I moved here. My wife has a 335i that had cast rims and rubber band tires. Handled great - but we were paying $200 every month to have a rim repaired. Finally broke down and bought forged rims...
  13. Porpoising at highway speeds

    Thanks to everyone for the responses and suggestions. I did reduce the tire pressure from 42 to 34psi. I also set the shocks to Sport mode. Did the test drive, still porpoised. Flipped the shocks back to soft mode - same damn thing. Was at my wits end with this one. Chatted with a buddy of...
  14. Porpoising at highway speeds

    I've adjusted the shocks to the firm setting - that may help a bit as it should help prevent some of the rebounding. I'll do the pressure lowering later, too - I've got to do some running around this evening anyway, so that'll give me a perfect test.
  15. Porpoising at highway speeds

    I'm set at 42 in the rear, which is what it came with from the factory. I've thought about dropping that down to 36-38, but just haven't done it yet. I'm going to check the shock settings after my next round of conference calls (yay corporate work from home life).
  16. Porpoising at highway speeds

    Thanks - I did talk to Teraflex about it yesterday (prior to the alignment) and they hadn't ever heard of this problem before. The only thing I've found online is stuff about drag cars (maybe useful) or vehicles being towed behind RVs (not useful). The drag car solution was to stiffen up the...
  17. Porpoising at highway speeds

    Porpoising is a back and forth rocking motion - it's not side to side, but front to back. Kind of like a porpoise diving in and out of the water. It's pretty frequent - a couple times a second.
  18. Porpoising at highway speeds

    I've just installed a Teraflax ST2 2.5" lift with the Falcon 3.3 shocks on my 2020 JLUR - it's got under 2K miles and hasn't been wheeled yet (though I do drive on MI roads, which is kind of similar to wheeling). Lift went in without any real problems and I actually ended up with 3" of lift...
