  1. Ordering a JL today... resale value?

    I just sold my beloved 2018 JLU Sport S with 6spd manual, 3.5" lift, 17" Fuel rims, steel bumper, winch, aux lights, Premium soft top, tow package, MOPAR running boards and LED head and tail lights. I only had the 5" UConnect radio, not even satellite. I got it new for $38k not including an...
  2. Air Condition Stopped Working

    One dealer found that my second battery was not charging. They replaced it under warranty and the problem never came back. Hope this helps.
  3. 2022 Rubicons will come with optional 35s, beadlocks, upgraded tire carrier

    Getting a factory option of 35's, 2.5" lift, bead locks and upgraded tire carrier that can be loaded into your financing may be attractive to many. I thank Ford for the competition and forcing Jeep's hand. I for one, still want to spec out my own gear and price shop and undercut the OEM and/or...
  4. Has anyone else been the victim of unprovoked road rage since having a Jeep

    I've never had it happen to me. During the spring and summer months, I have the doors off and most people pull up to me to give me a thumbs up or compliment my rig. I drive all over Southern California and take my time. I see the douche bags in Tesla's getting raged on all the time... but...
  5. More than just a Jeep... Jeep Crew steps up to help stranded motorists, healthcare workers in Clarksville

    I got this article on one of my news feeds. I'm a healthcare worker and a Jeeper. This article talks about Jeepers who provide rides to healthcare workers and help to stranded motorists who need it. They're Jeepers of all sorts: Wranglers, Cherokees, CJ'sand TJ's. It should shame those Bronco...
  6. Hitch Mount Cargo Storage

    I've used these types of carriers for years on my JK and on my 2018 JL. They suck. If you have oversize tires, like me (35's), then forget about your tailgate opening more than 40%. Also, in order for the folding feature to work, you will need to get a hitch extender which will reduce the hitch...
  7. question for the manual guys

    I've got an '18 JLU Sport S with 35's and a 3.5" lift. I only go into 5th or 6th when the prior gear revs to 3k-3.5k RPM. It doesn't matter if it's flat or uphill. If my upshifts fall below 2k, I bog down and have to upshift again. When I had the stock rims and 31" tires, I could upshift early...
  8. (2021) 3.6 manual vs 2.0 (non-e torque) long term

    I'm late to the party, but yes, this has been hashed and rehashed many times. I've got a Feb 2018 production JLU Sport S with 6sp and 3.6. I took delivery in April 2018 and as of this post I have 46,289 miles. I absolutely love this set up and wouldn't have it any other way. The automatics are...
  9. How many Jeeps have you owned?

    1987 XJ 1991 SJ 2008 XK Limited (damn, loved that rig with a Hemi) 2016 JKU Sahara (stock with painted hard top, fenders, bumpers, toe package, auto trans, Navi. LED lights, light bar) 2018 JLU Sport S, 3.5" lift, 35" tires, 17" rims, steel bumper, winch, premium soft top, 6 spd Manual...
  10. What would you do to your Jeep with $5k?

    Pro Comp 3.5" lift (I chose this bc I do more desert running than rock crawling and my buddies with Tundras beat the crap out of their suspensions day in and day out with no issues and the 5 year, 60k mile warranty is a plus), 17" wheels and 35" Nitto Ridge Grapplers. I'd recommend steelies, or...
  11. Jeep Should be Ashamed...

    Starting at the low end, the Wrangler Sport S comes standard next year with the Technology Group, currently a $995 option. The tech package adds a seven-inch TFT screen in the gauge cluster, the seven-inch Uconnect touchscreen with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, climate control with air filtering...
  12. Jeep Should be Ashamed...

    To compete with the Bronco, I read that all 2021 and newer Jeeps will at least have the 7" unit. The 5" is going away. That's the beauty of competition: it causes the manufacturer to improve the product to remain competitive. I wouldn't be surprised to see LED headlights become standard, too...
  13. Bronco vs Jeep Wrangler mega thread

    Here's one last idea, and Jeep Corp, this really is the last freebie, that will kill Bronco sales: Make the Wrangler a 3 row off road vehicle. I have 4 kids, so when we want to go wheeling, we either have to go with my in-laws who have a JKU or we take 2 vehicles and then rotate who goes on the...
  14. Bronco vs Jeep Wrangler mega thread

    Competition is good for both Ford and Jeep. As for myself, I'm a Jeep guy. Growing up, I never really saw Broncos, but I've always seen Jeeps (actually, as kid, I vaguely remember the whole OJ thing, but I had no idea what type of truck he was driving, and quite frankly, didn't care). In WW2...
  15. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    No but I work in a sketchy neighborhood... my coworker got his Honda CR-V stolen on 07/03. The lights do NOT have the blind spot monitor, it's just a plastic trim piece. Got them on Amazon. Kiwi Master.
  16. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    Kiwi Master. Amazon. Direct replacement for the OEM halogen tails. Comes with a resistor so there's no fault code on the dash. Full LED. The black plastic does NOT have the proximity sensor for the blind spot monitor.
  17. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    Installed a hood latch lock, locking fuel filler door, soft tonneau cover, smoked LED taillights, and a hidden GPS tracker.
  18. JL Reliability Opinions/Thoughts

    What's really sad is that Jeep and FCA are trying to make the Wrangler more than what it should be: a rugged, simple, go anywhere vehicle. I read on this forum and others how drivers are complaining that the proximity sensor on their doors don't work or how the leather seats are inferior to...
  19. JL Reliability Opinions/Thoughts

    I have a Feb 2018 build and an Apr 2018 delivery. 37,550 hard miles commuting, wheeling and traveling to and from Ensenada, BC, Mexico. I got a Sport S with manual transmission, base radio and and premium soft top. I knew going in to the first model year of the JL there would be gremlins. The...
