How much stuff do you really need?
I can fit myself in my JKU with my gear for a 3-4 day trip without much of an issue. My pack list is about this:
backpack for clothes
tote for cook gear
tote for jeep gear (recovery, tools, batteries etc)
50L Coleman cooler
Shout out to Caltopo. Draw objects and layers online and sync with your phone for offline download. Can change overlay between their default (which has a lot of trails), to USGS Quads, and forestry service maps.
I have their front mid width on my JK and would recommend. Its very well designed and looks awesome. Built in USA
Although, I did get it unfinished and painted it myself, its starting to rust a bit. Get the PC. When I got mine, their PC was reviewed as not the greatest. YMMV
Duratracs are not just a seasonal tire. You can run them all year. If youre doing it, do get all 5, so you can rotate them all through and get more miles out of the set. Ive gotten 60-65k out of a few sets of them doing the 5 tire rotate
size for size, they should be OK
Also, the Duratracs are NOT a snow tire. They are a extreme weather rated AT. With that said, they do rock in the snow, Ive done 9 New England winters between 2 sets and they are almost unstoppable. However, they are NOT a snow tire. Side by side, a dedicated...
sliders are also a good thing to have...just in general
Also, FYI, EJS was canceled and reinstated and canceled and I think is back on as of yesterday, I think. Theres a non-zero chance it could be off again before the date arrives
I did the build comparison today between the 4xe Sahara and the standard.
Dual tops ++$1300
Body color top ++$100
Power top ++$100
The extra $1300 for the 4xe dual top option is insane. I would tell them to pound sand over that.
Also agree that color tops are stupid on most colors, the...
Looking to get a JLU manual in the not too distant future. I know the clutch/tranny on the JK is open and if you change gears or otherwise put the clutch in while in a puddle, you will suck water and mud into it. Is that the same issue with the JL? Never have wheeled with a manual...
Thanks, dudes. With the head rests folding forward as opposed to rearwards in the JK, it looks like there should be enough room for me. Just slide the passenger seat forwards a bit. I have a thermarest trail pro (i think that's the model) and it just barely fits and I sleep pretty well back...
How much room is there for sleeping in the back of a JLU? My slight 6'2 frame just barely fits in the back of the JKU diagonally with my head mashed up in the back of the front passenger seat., but there's not quite enough room to stretch all the way out
First time poster, long time Jeeper here. Ive been looking into upgrading my JKU to a JLU in the not too distant future. Doing some reading around and I stumbled on the 40 page thread on the corrosion appearing around the hinges on the doors and hoods of the JLs.
Looks to be pretty wide...
