  1. Land Cruiser > Jeep :-O !!!

    I bought a new JLUR and a super clean ‘06 LX within a month of each other about 2 years ago. I daily drove the JL for over a year and my wife had the LX. Last summer we took a 3k+ roadtrip in the LX. To say it exceeded all expectations is an understatement and did it in comfort. I never went...
  2. New JL Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    Yeah, they are pretty sad. The bright spot are the service receptionists who kind and helpful. They were the only ones within a few hundred miles that had what I wanted at that 13% off MSRP the VA area people were getting at the time. But after the emails stopped and I walked into the...
  3. New JL Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    I was just in there and seemingly got the run-around answer. I’m glad you got a yes from them even through the parts are “delayed”. That gives me a little hope but I’d be happy to drive to FC to not be played.
  4. This is why off-road trails get closed in the San Juans and elsewhere.

    My multigenerational CO friend explained this to me. People from Texas love Texas. Everything in Texas is great. When they move to CO, they talk about how this and that are better in Texas. Then go back to Texas if its so wonderful or STFU. Of course there are Texas that responsibly use CO...
  5. How much have you spent on modding your Jeep?

    I've lost count by now, but id guess its around $110 for the Weathertech liner in the back.
  6. Snowboard / Ski rack for JL Rubicon Unlimited

    Update to my previous post: I placed my floor mats on each side between the roll bar and tailgate. I placed my kids skis and my poles sideways with an end on each floor mat. This freed up a ton of floor space as well make a convenient load/unload. My expensive skis no longer have other...
  7. Side by Side Dog Crates

    Ainley, Deerskin, and Mountain Top were the top tier a few years ago. None of them are cheap, but you will get a great product. A lab about 70lbs would need a 36” hole, I think the back of the Jeep is 32” ircc. A custom side entry would be pricey.
  8. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    I appreciate the work. This a eureka moment for my situation. I have the same issue as you it seems. I don’t have wander at all. I have to correct due to steering slop. The Jeep will track straight forever without input in theory. (Un)fortunately I've learned to cope with the slop which allows...
  9. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    “...without issue.” That’s very obtuse. Of course there is an issue, I doubt you are doing this for fun.
  10. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    I should have known better than to concern myself with the opinion of a person who puts Lund window vents on a vehicle after 1996.
  11. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    You don't have a problem, great. Other people do. I've driven and owned the types of vehicles you described. There is something wrong with the steering in my JL. There is a dead spot at the top of the steering.
  12. Snowboard / Ski rack for JL Rubicon Unlimited

    I use the custom Thukima Left Seat Fold Mod. I live in an apartment so shuttling equipment isnt easy especially with the kids not carrying their own stuff. I also have garage height restrictions to worry about; I don’t think a gutter rail and Evo FatCat setup would work. As a result, I have 4...
  13. Cracked Windshield Club

    I joined the club on Sunday. I was driving about 40mph on the highway leaving Breck with an SUV about 10 car lengths in front of me. i get a small chip about an inch from the top left edge. An hour later it was about 2" long. The next morning it ran to directly in my field of vision. My hope of...
  14. Some good lessons for overlanding solo

    As life settles down a bit, I plan to get out camping and hunting much more. I'm not going to be pushing any limits, but the comms issue is my major concern. I just don't understand how it all works. I guess with the CB you search channels until you can find someone to help. With the in-reach...
  15. Apparently a New TSB came out today for Loose Steering

    What did they do in 15 min? The flash?
  16. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    JLs are fun, capable, and unique but at the end of the day they are $50k POSs. For most “getting passed on the trail” is a small price to pay for that occasional time you have to drive to work every day.
  17. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    All signs point to defective steering boxes.
  18. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    Don’t forget to save the steering box for the person who said they wanted to analyze it!
  19. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    It’s a Steering Thing, You Wouldn’t Understand. The tires could be 44” Boggers or 13” Yugo wheels, it wouldn’t make a difference. There is slack in the wheel.
  20. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    Good point. I’m 100% stock. If I had a lift/etc I would absolutely spend the money on the PSC to fix everything and deal with other warranty issues as they come up.
