  1. An Explanation of eTorque: what it is, how it works, what it does.

    These lines run almost the entire length of the wheelbase, right at frame level. Rocks, sticks can easily snag them.
  2. I Got Some Bad Trail Wounds

    Given that the shop is/was waiting for parts, you should be wheeling the S$#% out of the Jeep *prior* to repairs. Just saying. Good luck, and hope the repairs look great.
  3. So this is silly...

    That is 5 months ago. I find it hard to believe that an order would take that long to fulfill (assuming it does not "stop delivery" items like manual transmission). What is the confidence level that the dealer in-fact place the order in January?
  4. New Raptor Load Range C 37s?

    Yes, that is part of it. 8.5" vs 9" will account for a 3% of sidewall height change in diameter at the shoulder or approximately 1/4". At the crown (highest point) of a mounted tire, the different would be less - I haven't done the math, but maybe 1/8".
  5. 2022 Models - Press Release Dates

    A - 35s are still the most popular tire upgrade for Wranglers (with 37s inching up for Rubicons). So most buyers can get it from the factory and not have to deal with the upgrade. B - Not having to deal with dealer hassle "It has big aftermarket tires - XYZ is not covered under warranty" C -...
  6. 2022 Models - Press Release Dates

    It is obviously related to bigger tires - likely 35" option from the factory. Maybe 40.4 cm (˜16") ground clearance with that option. Or 40.4 degrees departure angle (since the arrow is in the back axle).
  7. An Explanation of eTorque: what it is, how it works, what it does.

    Yes, the lines and battery pack are exposed. They are exposed to water, mud, sticks and rocks. That is really a bad location to put a LiION battery. Jeep worked very hard to remove the evap canister that was in that location, precisely because they kept getting hit. Mine (on JK) got hit (both...
  8. An Explanation of eTorque: what it is, how it works, what it does.

    There is nothing that changes the MPG rating. But yes, it probable adds a fraction of a MPG. I think it's something that Jeep thought they could get some extra $$$ for. And they have been moving eTorque from one engine to another, one price option to another trying to get enough customers to...
  9. An Explanation of eTorque: what it is, how it works, what it does.

    I think the issue with eTorque is the cost/benefit equation. On the Ram, the battery is out of harm's way, the vehicle/engine is much heavier, thus the benefits are more significant (up to 2MPG difference). On the JL, there was ZERO MPG difference between the models with/without eTorque (e.g...
  10. New Raptor Load Range C 37s?

    Actually, tire manufacturers publish their tire sizes when mounted to a stated wheel width. For BFG KO2 37x12.5R17 all published measurements are when mounted on a 17x10" wheel. Not sure anyone thinks they are "true to size". We were discussing actual sizes. As far as comparative sizes, I...
  11. New Raptor Load Range C 37s?

    I actually asked the question, to learn from others' experiences. I'm interested in the opinions to know what my next tire will be. I agree on feeling the difference in weight and mass moving around. As far as two tires of the same type both set up to their respective optimum pressure, with the...
  12. New Raptor Load Range C 37s?

    Did you feel any negative change in ride quality going from load range C 33s to load range D 37s? I didn't. Minor adjustments in tire pressure are much more noticeable than the difference between load range C or D on a tire. I doubt many people can correctly pick out which tire they are driving...
  13. Clicking noise when turning.

    Thank you so much. One more question - is there any trick to removing the cotter pins more easily?
  14. New Raptor Load Range C 37s?

    Thanks for posting the picture and measurements, other than the fact that my Jeep is a JLUR, and I measured it with my typical weight before passengers (with my tools and recovery gear) of 5,200 lbs, I don't know what could account for the difference.
  15. Clicking noise when turning.

    Does anyone have the part numbers or size/type of cotter pins? I need to tighten mine (clicking), but want to use new cotter pins. A link to buy on-line would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  16. New Raptor Load Range C 37s?

    I'd love to see pictures with some measurements and indicating the tire pressure on them.
  17. New Raptor Load Range C 37s?

    I have posted careful measurements on another thread, with pictures, of ground to shoulder and ground to strait edge. Both under the Jeep and unloaded (spare). The 37x12.5R17D KO2s at 30 PSI, under my 5,200lbs JLUR does not reach 35" no matter which way you measure it.
  18. For those going with 37s, are you regearing??

    Was that with the Turbo on 3.6 that you noticed the altitude degradation? $20K of mods, ouch. You made me feel better since I'm around $8K. The issue is that the next step (D60 + 39x13 tires) is huge!
  19. JLUR Metal Flakes on Diff Housing - How Much is Normal

    You sir are an incredible resource. I'll drain the front again in 5K miles and check. FIngers crossed.
  20. New Raptor Load Range C 37s?

    Roughly what I got on my D rated at 30PSI from ground to highest part of the tire. (34 and 1/8 at the shoulder) I'm surprised the Red Ruby got an extra inch on his measurement, even though he was at 24PSI - maybe the weight of the Jeep does make a bigger difference on these tires on how they...
