  1. Looks Like Ford Bronco is Serious About Taking on the Wrangler

    I have no doubt the Bronco might be stiff competition for the wrangler. A huge advantage the wrangler will have for at least several more years is the ready availability of aftermarket products...skids, lifts, etc.
  2. Jeep invites you to the first ever Jeep Brand digital livestream roundtable

    I’ve only had my Recon for 3 months and 2,000 miles. It may turn out to be a piece of garbage but my review regarding “Initial” quality at this point is very positive, After reading these forums I was very hesitant about ordering a new Jeep.
  3. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    Special times indeed...
  4. 2.0T, how hot do you run?

    Are you using 87 or 91 octane? I just filled up with 87 octane on my 2.0 and it seems to be running hotter, but we don’t have mountain passes...just 100 degree heat. That’s a bit anecdotal...just a thought.
  5. Does anyone actually like start-stop

    2.0 BSG = exceptional smooth...I never turn off. No comparison to ESS which is very noticeable and irritating.
  6. Granite Crystal vd Sting Sting Gray

    Like both - went with sting gray because easier to repaint and match if damaged.
  7. 2.0 Turbo Engine Oil. Book says 5w-30 and dealer used 5w-20

    Pretty clear to me - they used the wrong grade...time for a redo. As far as trusting their trained people - you mean that 18 year old kid who knows nothing about engines? Oil changed are relegated to the least experienced.
  8. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    How do you wheel with that plate location?
  9. Heavy Duty Tire Carrier Question????

    $600 option to purchase separately- and you’ll want it for bigger tires...
  10. That looks expensive

    Yep - a dumb mistake multiplied by drowning a couple vehicles. Alcohol may have been a factor? My nephew did the same thing but managed to get the boat loaded on a trailer which he proceeded to tow up a boat ramp (hull full of water). Blew four trailer tires and rear tires on pick up.
  11. Jeep Places in Top 11 of JD Powers Initial Quality Survey

    Interesting - never had a problem with Toyota’s or Honda’s. Also my Tesla Model 3 has been problem free...
  12. Looks Like Ford Bronco is Serious About Taking on the Wrangler

    If Ford has somehow figured out how to make IFS with more articulation, that would be good news for many of us. Choice is good. Some in this board seem very concerned the Bronco might be successful in competing with the Wrangler.
  13. Flying rocks! Updates on protection.

    I cut and applied pieces of paint protection film to the hinges. I did that on my JK also and never received any pits on the hinges. A little tedious but it’s cheap, easy, and effective.
  14. Just got road raged by a Karen

    I understand the frustration and I have experienced the same situation. However cleaver name calling merely reduces you to the pathetic level of the offender and risks some crazy pulling out a gun and shooting you. Unfortunately we can’t fix stupid or rude self centered drivers.
  15. Test drove Land Rover Defender

    I think the Defender would be great for the type off moderate off-roading I do...,but LR unreliability is too risky. FCA is poor...LR is worse because of how expensive maintenance becomes after a few years. I really like the Defender but would wait a few years to see how it proves itself...
  16. Jeep Slotted above Rubicon

    I think the biggest problem with the price is the value proposition...the wrangler has become too expensive for what it is. For goodness sakes in 2021 they are charging extra for gray non metallic paint. I wonder how much Jeep makes on a wrangler compared to what Ford will make on a somewhat...
  17. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    Wow - are you a plant by Ford? May you find happiness in your Bronco watching Jeep owners rock crawling...from afar.
  18. Looks Like Ford Bronco is Serious About Taking on the Wrangler

    You can pass a Prius going up a 7% grade with the 3.8? Kidding aside, you are right about big deal on the trail, but on the highway it’s way more important.
  19. Unleaded Gas question for 2.0L engine

    I’ve read somewhere to run premium in the turbo when stressing the engine such as high speed Driving in hot weather w/AC or when pulling a trailer. I’ve run both 87 and 91 in my 2.0 and I really can’t tell a difference in city driving. Thoughts?
  20. Jeep Slotted above Rubicon

    I realize this thread references the Bronco but the with the price of a loaded JLUR exceeding $60,000, the V6 supercharged Land Rover Defender 110 is only $10,000 more with an air suspension that creates 11.5” clearance and pretty robust skids. I believe it will have a factory winch option. If...
