  1. Proximity key issue - takes a few pulls to unlock

    The transmitters on the key fobs are very weak and intended to be so. As such, the signal will not go through a lot of things especially if the batter is not new. From experience with a weaker battery if the fob is in my front pocket it will work but in my back pocket it may not. I will...
  2. Looking to buy Jeep JKU Sport for my sons first car....lots of questions

    Hi there, I am relatively new to jeeps. I am on my first one and love it. I have the typical take-offs:, rims, tires, shocks, springs, front and rear track bars, rock rails, etc...that I have replaced on my JLUR....bumpers are next. I was wondering what if any of this stuff would work on a...
  3. 2020 Wrangler Engine Catches Fire, Vehicle Burns

    At first glance, I initially thought this photo was faked or had parts removed prior to the photo. Then watching this thread I started looking at lots of photos of burnt cars. At first inspection, I saw complete shells of cars...and wonder how did that jeep so bad. Modifying the search to...
  4. 2020 Wrangler Engine Catches Fire, Vehicle Burns

    Magnesium as a solid part or a block is very difficult to burn (not impossible). The shavings or powder created during machining a magnesium part are very dangerous so is molten magnesium as you have noted from the Wiki. However, as a typical part for a car or plane, they do not pose risk...
  5. Battery Pack for Fridge Question

    I have been using Goal Zero 1000 powering a Dometic CFX-40. For your usage, any 500 will work. The problem isn't the sustained running it will be the initial start-up. If your contents you are putting in are already cold...you will be fine. Just take a look at the lower cut off limits of...
  6. The dirty underbelly of off-roading

    For the women or girls in your life.....by a few of these: https://go-girl.com/ They really will love you for it.
  7. Passenger air bag and putting things on the grab bar safety question

    As a prior airbag engineer, I can tell you anything not firmly attached to the vehicle can become a serious problem during a deployment event. Cell phones are an issue but there are worse things. Pens, pencils, cups with straws...anything left loose in the upper dashboard tray. These items...
  8. Technical Drawings/CAD of 2018 JLU Sport

    Not sure what you are trying to accomplish but you can get almost any JEEP 3D model at TurboSquid.com. I am not an affiliate or any way connected to TurboSquid. There are tons of online resources to get 3D models from.
  9. Key fob issue

    I have had similar problems but have narrowed it down to something else in the pocket causing interference with the keyfob signal. As an example...the fob will not work with my iPhone in the pocket in front of the phone between key fob and JEEP line of sight. This is most evident when trying...
  10. How May Miles on Your 3.6?

    44,000 and going... no issues. I follow the maintenance plan, oil changes every 5K.
  11. Raised White Letters on KO2 Tires

    I think if you like the way it looks...go for it. if you just like to advertise for your favorite tire company... we all like brands.....go for it. But for me... I just won't ever do it. It's just one more thing I would want to keep clean...and I bought a jeep to stay dirty.
  12. Dealers refusing to do TSB?

    Yes. each one and more.
  13. Dealers refusing to do TSB?

    A little background....I took delivery on my JLUR in March 2018. So there are a number of things that need to get done...but here are just a few TSB 080942 - for all 2018 Wranglers TSB 09-012-18 All JLs built before May 2018 23-040-18 - All JLs built between 9/1/2017 and 9/1/2018 24-006-19...
  14. Right pull

    Adjustable track bars will most certainly affect the thrust angle. I had the same problem as originally stated after a lift and with front and rear adjustable track bars the thrust angles have been on the money....more importantly that pull to the right is gone
  15. Dealers refusing to do TSB?

    I am hoping the group may shed some light on this. It has been my thought that TSB are there for the dealer to use based on issues a customer is having...not based on VIN Numbers. Is this correct? I have so many issues that could be solved through the issued TSB. However because the...
  16. Front axle off center

    No idea about what their spec limits are but offsets are a problem under certain driving conditions on pavement. Not an issue when off road. Off road, you slip and slide already just part of the fun. Under wet heavy braking conditions the offset "can" cause a significant pull or make heavy...
  17. Recalls / TSB / Issues Bulletins for JL Wrangler. Check your JL for recalls.

    Dealer refusing to do TSBs - really? I have had a list of issues and since its pain to get to my dealer I held off and tried to collect them all together trying to make this easy....not turning out this way. I was told that unless the TSB is identified on their computer system for my vehicle...
  18. Stop/Start Not Ready-Battery Charging

    thank you.... expensive but in the long run probably its going to be less time consuming / less costly to replace a standard battery than that tiny aux battery we have now that is stuffed below everything. Going to have add this to my list too.
  19. Stop/Start Not Ready-Battery Charging

    UPDATE: Received the dreaded call back from the dealer today stating both the main battery and the aux battery would need to be replaced for $650 since I was past 36,000 miles. Luckily for me its not going to be that bad but regardless I think a different battery solution is in order. For...
  20. Stop/Start Not Ready-Battery Charging

    Mine is currently in the shop for a new battery since it has not been working for the last 15,000 miles. So some might ask why would I fix it if nothing else is wrong. Well with 40,000 miles on my JLUR I can tell you that the benefit is not when I am offroad or typical city driving. For...
