  1. Volume/gain level?

    I had a 2018 Sport S with the 7” screen and Alpine stereo, and recently got a 2021 Rubicon 4xe, which comes with the 8.4” screen and also the Alpine stereo. In my old Jeep, I had a conscious cutoff of volume 15, because that to me was bordering on “too loud” and if I turned it up past that I’d...
  2. Jeep says 4xe sold out??

    Not 4xe specific, but in 2018 I ordered my JLU on August 1st 2018 and it was delivered 8/22 as a 2018 model. Might have been a different year because it was the intro year, I dunno.
  3. Jeep says 4xe sold out??

    While I am thrilled and excited with my 4xe order, I wonder how much of the success is Jeep just blowing the things out with lease specials. I mean, my $60k 4xe is leasing at $20/mo more than my $45k Sport. Some of that is the extra money from the tax credit, but some of that is a hefty discount...
  4. Why Tommy from TFL bought a Wrangler instead of a Bronco (or 4Runner)

    Unless you have kids. 2dr Wrangler forces you to choose between bringing people and bringing stuff. I’d never be able to drive it to our cabin up north, meaning I’d never get to use it in the places I really want to (the woods) because with people in the back seat there’s no room for a weekends’...
  5. Why Tommy from TFL bought a Wrangler instead of a Bronco (or 4Runner)

    I am interested in the Bronco and will be happy to take a look, but I will wait until the hype dies down and you can get one at sticker or less freely, I’m not down with the “order for a year out and hope the dealer doesn’t ADM it when it gets here” thing
  6. Why Tommy from TFL bought a Wrangler instead of a Bronco (or 4Runner)

    I’m not complaining about Chicago pizza. I’m saying by eating good Chicago and Connecticut pizza, I’m spoiled, so anywhere else I go it’s trash.
  7. Why Tommy from TFL bought a Wrangler instead of a Bronco (or 4Runner)

    Long story but a family member is buying out my Jeep lease. He decided to do this before prices went nuts and my wife (her family member) won’t let me back out. It’s costing me ~$5k but nothing I can do 🤬🤬🤬 I did get my new one for 9% under MSRP so there is that.
  8. Why Tommy from TFL bought a Wrangler instead of a Bronco (or 4Runner)

    What people in Chicago eat: What people think we eat:
  9. Why Tommy from TFL bought a Wrangler instead of a Bronco (or 4Runner)

    No I meant I have great pizza in Chicago, had great pizza in CT, so anywhere else I go it’s guaranteed trash.
  10. Why Tommy from TFL bought a Wrangler instead of a Bronco (or 4Runner)

    I moved from CT to outside Chicago. Traveling is painful whenever I go somewhere else and they drag me to “the best pizza place in town”…ugh. No, just no.
  11. Car and Driver trashes the 4xe

    I didn’t feel that the 4xe was underpowered compared to my 3.6L in normal driving (but then I don’t think the 3.6L feels underpowered either). I only drove it up to about 35mph on city streets. Let’s face it, if you’re on the highway you’re probably going to want hybrid mode anyways.
  12. Why Tommy from TFL bought a Wrangler instead of a Bronco (or 4Runner)

    I entered my second Jeep lease with the idea that in 3 years the real off-road land scape will look different; we’ll have the Bronco widely available without markups, the new 4Runner, and probably a freshened Wrangler. But as a guy whose Jeep lease is ending this summer, I.e. needs a new...
  13. Car and Driver trashes the 4xe

    I know. I’ve got my manual fix in my sports car, no interest in a manual SUV. Also, I think the 8AT is superior to the 6MT in the Jeep anyways.
  14. Car and Driver trashes the 4xe

    If I could afford a 392 I’d have one, for the exhaust note alone. But I can’t. What I can afford is the cheap lease rates on a Rubicon 4xe. Coupled with the fact that I’ll be pure electric almost all the time, and it will be a silent hunting partner, it is the best option for me. Frankly I’m...
  15. Happy 4th of July! How many of you are military veterans?

    Did a few years in the USN, like my dad and his dad before him. Other grandpa was a Marine.
  16. Car and Driver trashes the 4xe

    Same here. I have no illusions that the 4xe doesn’t work for everyone, but i think it will work for me (mine should be here next week). I don’t have a problem with anyone who says “it doesn’t work for me”, but I do think it’s not fair to say “It doesn’t work for me so it’s stupid/bad/whatever”...
  17. Have all the JL problems been worked out for '21?

    My 2018 has only had minor problems: -steering recall -rear window defroster tab -7” Uconnect flickering That’s it.
  18. What is the ONE Jeep Accessory every Jeep owner needs?

    Sorry this thread blew up and I haven’t kept up, just seeing this. I bought this one cuz it’s cheap. Haven’t had any issues with it. Will probably order a new one for the new Jeep. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07KR1ML1M/ref=ppx_yo_mob_b_inactive_ship_o2_img?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  19. Stupid question on rear reflectors

    I ordered the rear lights, so we’ll see how it goes. Also ordered the Brawlee light and switch to install. I want to get the KC LED slim lights too, but at $350 that’s less of a spur of the moment purchase.
