  1. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    I weighed it. So much for flat towing behind the family RV. 5k limit class B.
  2. Shipping your Jeep to an event

    I’m going to do the Rubicon trail next summer but don’t really want to drive 2000 miles each way. Has anyone ever shipped your jeep to/from an event? Who did you use, Uship? Someone else? The alternative is flat towing it behind a class B. What would you do?
  3. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    I installed a Rockhard 4x4 stubby bumper and fixed my steering. If anyone else does the stubby, do things in this order: 1. Install winch. 2. Install foglights, 3. Install bumper. Have strong friends around to help. Heavy bumper is that much worse after adding winch. Other orders result...
  4. PUNK'N Wrangler Jl club

    I’m like 4 back from him. He uses a very different technique that relies on a lot of throttle, but he’s so narrow he could take a lot of lines the TJ, JK, JKU and JLURs couldn’t.
  5. PUNK'N Wrangler Jl club

    Trip to Gilbert OHV park
  6. PUNK'N Wrangler Jl club

    Got some new tires, also AAL inner fenders and RGB Highliners.
  7. Black Rhino Wheel Experiences?

    No issues with mine. I've scraped them up on rocks pretty well, and then they lived through the winter. I do use rustoleum paint over the places where they were scraped. My wheels are for offroading, so aren't really pretty anymore. Overland 17x9.5 rims.
  8. Wisconsin FS: OEM LED DRLs w/harness

    DRLs. Thanks for asking as I was unclear. Apologies for anyone thinking they were the headlamps.
  9. Wisconsin FS: OEM LED DRLs w/harness

    Was that tree closer than you thought and now you have a DRL dangling off the side of your fender? Solution: Buy my undamaged LED and replace them. You can do this yourself by watching the AAL highline fender install video and learn how to remove your light, then follow instructions in...
  10. Help, wobble after tie-rod drag link install - Solved: User Error!

    Not the DL, I went with a metalcloak on that. My tie-rod got settled, but required 130 ft/lbs, which is WAY higher than what it's supposed to be. Key is just to get as much thread exposed as you can to give it purchase to hold.
  11. AVG MPG After Lift kit/Tires...GO!

    2018 JLUR 3.6 MT. 3.5" metalcloak, 315s. I run about 14-15 mpg highway (~70-75 mph), and 15-16 around town (35-40 mph). I'm running no door and no windows on the soft top.
  12. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    Got the missing parts today, will probably work on the front end this this weekend!
  13. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    I installed rear fender liners from American Adventure Labs I had planned to install their RGB highline, front inner fenders and rear liners, but I'd already started the rear when I discovered I was missing the quick-release buttons from the rear. Now I'm waiting patiently for them to reply to...
  14. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    When I first picked it up after the service, it felt off, the engagement was much closer to the floor, and there was a hesitation in the pedal as it came out of the friction zone before it came to the upright position. This sucked a lot, but after a day of wheeling it feels pretty much like it...
  15. JL Aluminum Half Doors - Now Available!

    I looked at the install instructions on the bestop doors here. Looks like it would be drilling 3 holes on top of the door and putting a velcro strip on the lower door. Not particularly appealing to have the velcro on there when most of the time I'd run without the upper. There is probably a way...
  16. Spare tire fit with 35’s. Help

    be careful with the brake wire. It may be very snug when you raise up the bracket. You might have to open it up and allow it to run in a straighter line to give you the slack needed to raise it up.
  17. What is the average age of a JL Rubicon owner

    46, 2 teens and a tween at home. Mortgage at 20% LTV, college savings about where we want it for all 3 kids, wife and I both have pretty good jobs with 401ks with decent matches.
  18. Who actually takes their JL offroad?

    Went to the trails this weekend, here I am about to get stuck in the MUD, and the looks of the tires after I winched myself out. Stuction is a thing. Notice that the plate is flipped up for easy access to the winch. The tree strap, snatch block and winch controller were all ready to go...
  19. Who actually takes their JL offroad?

    I do. As others have said, not a daily driver, but I do drive it daily if the weather is nice.
  20. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    They just called. Did it today. Clutch passed, so only the sleeve. They also are giving me the new front stabilizer so they can mark that recall off as completed even though they aren't touching my current setup. Interesting.
