I asked the owner of Z Automotive about this just last week, and he still hopes to offer a solution for this *eventually*.
There is a programming issue that has been proving hard to nail down.
Unfortunately no ETA.
The latest Z Automotive TazerJL firmware updates include the feature of flashing the 3rd brake light.
Seems like no more than 4 slow flashes won't get you in trouble in most states. Your mileage may vary in this regard...
So here's my update. The clicking has largely disappeared since they re-torqued a bunch of bolts in the front-end.
I never proceeded with replacing any parts (and definitely not the axle!).
For the person with the recent question - no clicking felt through the steering wheel (nowhere near...
He seems to be stalled out on it, although the last word was that he had a few hundred already manufactured.
The hold-up is that every few days the Jeep throws an error because it thinks the doors are on (because of the device) but it never gets any notifications that the doors have been...
They felt good that they isolated the nose to the U-fitting at the end of the axle.
He also said changing out a Jeep axle is a really easy job. They don't have to open the front differential at all -- just remove some fitting near the middle that holds it all together then one bang with a...
Ok, so a mechanic who genuinely seems to be a “Jeep guy” just tightened and torqued my front end.
He and another tech together worked on it, and decided the front axle needs to be replaced.
They tightened the ball joint crown nuts like I asked; and said that did not resolve the click.
Haha or replace the radio!
Thanks for the comforting words. I don’t mind if shit needs “adjusting” just don’t want big problems down the road.
This is my 4th Wrangler over the years - I’ve had excellent results with this every one!
So I'm taking my 2019 JL in Wednesday for the click sound. I'm an optimist, so I'm going to hope it's just the torquing/tightening of the ball joints. I have about 6K miles on it, purchased Feb 2019.
The clicking has gotten more pronounced over time, but still doesn't sound very terrible. I...
I think that's incredible un-true. With doors-off, the wind noise is very loud, even at moderate speed, let alone whether the driver has a radio or music going. On the highway, it's flat-out ridiculous.
Separating the noise of your own (off-road) tires and your wind from the sound produced by...
...I have a suggested trick for all of us:
clearly the designers rarely try to disconnect the door harnesses — that f’in connector is a bitch to get open it’s so tight.
I figured out that if I open the latch and then close the little sliding lock — when I close the latch it isn’t able to go...
You’re better off with his product. He was able to source the female plug of the harness in our JL’s (a mystery to me how that’s done!) so his device just plugs in when our doors come off :)
