  1. JL Bikini Tops?

    :( How am I gonna keep my shopping bags out of sight when my bros and I go and get orange mocha fraps?
  2. JL Bikini Tops?

    Since there are no photos of the 2dr version... Does the duster go behind the rear seats, or is it another one where the assumption is that people who own a 2dr never use the back seat?
  3. how steep can you go?

    I have a related question for ya'll.. maybe? I don't have any real offroading experience, so I'm not sure what my limits are. I live on a hillside. There is a drop off of about 8-10ft from the side of the road down to the point I'm trying to drive to. I have a distance of about 25ft to build...
  4. Water Fording In Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 2 Door

    I'd imagine if water crossings are your primary purpose, you could get a snorkel kit for your Jeep and not really worry about water depth. There's a Mopar one that involves cutting a hole in your hood and one from Rugged Ridge that is just a swap-out with a little body panel near the windshield...
  5. Silver lining - I get to go topless

    Rampage makes a fabric rear tonneau for 2-dr (I think it's for rear seat folded down, assuming you're not hauling people..) Look for part number 741135, it's like $60-$70. I'm not sure I'd call it security as much as a deterrent or rain cover. They also have a windjammer to make the drive a...
  6. Weight distribution Hitch

    Draw-Tite sells a receiver rated at 675lb tw/4500lb gtw (part number 76104) ... Exceeding mfg ratings are a ymmv kind of deal though.
  7. First Look: Sidetrack LED System for Wrangler JL!

    Missed opportunity for an inconspicuous switch to turn on with a capacitor/delay-off for us manual lock folks. Will wait for rev. 2; unlike power lock folks, I actually could use an exterior light to jam the key in the hole.,
  8. Dana 60 Edition

    I don't know what I would do with myself if a 2x4 was 2x4. That would be nothing short of life-changing.
  9. Dana 60 Edition

    This seems like something people would buy; though how many folks put on stronger axles without also regearing? I'm guessing most folks wouldn't go to Dana 60s unless they were running 38's or 40's, in which case, 4.10s might start to be a bit out of spec. At that point you've gotta put on a...
  10. Please help with lift... overwhelmed

    You probably don't want to waste your money on a full lift either if you end up with a rough ride for the bulk of your miles. Those "cheap" lifts can get you there without impacting your factory ride quality much. I wouldn't be swapping out springs and shocks unless there was something I was...
  11. Soft-Top v Hardtop

    Lots of folks like the hard top, I don't think it's a "wrong" decision at all. There are pluses and minuses to both, which is why dual tops are common. Used soft tops can be found pretty cheap if you wanted to have one for the summers.. Or if you love it, you could pretty easily sell your hard...
  12. The Important of Painted Fender Flares on Stock Jeep

    Here's a question... Is the plastic on the painted fenders different than the plastic on the black/textured ones? I find the textured fenders to be pretty soft/easy to scratch/gouge (in addition to the greying/cleaning issues). But... "Paint ready" black plastic parts (like the unpainted black...
  13. FCA pulls out of 2020 Easter Jeep Safari. New concept will debut elsewhere.

    hah, yeah, even Amazon is sold out of all but the bizzaro flavors of ramen too... meanwhile, shelves are overflowing with Dorrito's .. Clearly hysterical people think that rehydrated kinda-noodles have way more food value than corn.
  14. Basic soft doors?

    Do you not like the 2-piece fabric doors Bestop makes for the JL? Outside of the cost, it looks about the same if you remove the top part. Edit: I wanted to add.. thanks for reminding me about these.. I've been looking at tube doors, but these 2-piece doors are probably a more practical...
  15. FCA pulls out of 2020 Easter Jeep Safari. New concept will debut elsewhere.

    All I know is that my boss still expects me to show up to work and I don't have any ramen for lunch because apparently when the shit goes down, people stockpile ramen f'n noodles?? All I want is a cheap and easy lunch that I can make without getting off my ass. Is that too much to ask? Stupid...
  16. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    Moving some wires covers their asses, that's all. "Yes, your clutch might still slip, overheat, prematurely wear out or blow up, but, it probably won't cause a fire, maybe." If Jeeps aren't spontaneously combusting, then it'll fly under the radar and since clutches are wear items, they can...
  17. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    It looks like 100% of manuals are getting recalled, but that might involve a test for the faulty part(s), once they figure out the cause. I'm sure FCA is "estimating" 99% of the manuals are totally fine, because, science.
  18. If there was one thing you could change about your JL...

    Sport bars that don't stop a foot before the tailgate. Kinda looks like an old VW Thing convertible IMO. You said one Thing right?
  19. My admittedly weak justification for buying a Jeep...

    It was kinda hard to see in photographs, but this is the real problem corner. It's uphill on the right with a cluster of small trees, and a drop-off to the left edge of the path starting where that larger tree is on the left edge of the photo. You can just make out the tracks I left behind, with...
  20. My admittedly weak justification for buying a Jeep...

    I've always lived here, but when people talk about Oregon, I always think of this John Oliver bit... "We get it, Oregon, you live in a cartoon..."
