  1. 35” Tire on the factory spare mount?

    Is the relocation bracket part of the hinge reinforcement package? Or is it a separate item for purchase? Maybe I need to reach out to the dealer. Just got it yesterday.
  2. 35” Tire on the factory spare mount?

    So, I opted for the OE hinge reinforcement option as I’ve read countless times that a 35” tire can be mounted to the spare tire mount. My beef isn’t with the reinforcement, it’s the fact that a 35” does NOT fit on the mount! When I attempt to close the tailgate, the bottom of the new 35” tire...
  3. Mounting ARB Air Compressor

    Yeah, I realized this last night during my install. I’m pretty disappointed that stuff isn’t mentioned in their site BEFORE I drop hundreds of dollars on their mounts. I’m not too worried about cutting a hole in the trim, it’s that the air lines just sit beneath the cargo line you mentioned. Any...
  4. Anyone ordered a Jeep Wrangler in the last two months from the factory? How long did it take before you got your jeep?

    Ordered a JLURD on 3/31. Per dealer, had a ship date of 5/5. Jeep just sent me an email stating “week of 5/23”.
  5. New Cooper Rugged Trek

    Guy at the Cooper store said Cooper shut down their M/T line to make road and A/T tires. Had to catch up with demand. That’s halfway believable as it took me almost 2 weeks to find 5 35” KM3’s. Wonder if they’ll make more sizes once they catch up. Just made some of the more common sizes up...
  6. Blessing of the Jeeps in Mesik Michigan on this Saturday.

    Guess I could’ve figured that out had I just thought about it for 30 seconds. 🤦🏻‍♂️ There is also the Put-In-Bay Jeep Invasion in Ohio. Never been to that, might head there in July.
  7. JL resale values are insane!

    I think Wranglers in general are insane right now. I can't find a good shape TJ Rubicon for less than $17K. $20K seems to be the norm. $20,000 for a 15yo 4x4 with 120,000 on the clicker. THAT, is insane.
  8. Blessing of the Jeeps in Mesik Michigan on this Saturday.

    Is that the Ohio thing? Sorry, I'm missing the abbreviation.....
  9. Blessing of the Jeeps in Mesik Michigan on this Saturday.

    My JLURD was moved from 4/29 to 5/5 by Toledo, so I guess I'm not attending.
  10. New Cooper Rugged Trek

    At my local rural tire shop and of course they can’t keep SST’s in stock. But he pulled this new Rugged Trek outta nowhere. Hmmmm.
  11. Let’s talk tread wear.

    Are Mickey Thompsons known to be a ‘high mileage’ brand? I know BFGs last a while, and it sounds like the SSTs last a while too. 50K miles is almost 2yrs of driving for me.
  12. Leveling Kits for the 3.0

    New 3.0 Rubicon is in the works in Toledo and as my DD, I don’t plan to really lift it, just level it and go to 35’s which will suffice for 90% of my Michigan wheeling. My question is, which kits have you diesel owners bought that did a decent job of actually leveling the Jeep? I bought .75”...
  13. Let’s talk tread wear.

    Dang, that’s good info @blnewt, thanks. I’ve never seen the MTP either and that seems like a decent all around tire for me. I might actually go that route. Im not loyal to Discount, just noticed that the Evolution was an exclusive. I’ve also considered the Nittro Trail Grappler. You can get...
  14. Let’s talk tread wear.

    Anyone ever hear anything on the Cooper Evolution M/T? It’s 20% less than the SST. My understanding is it’s an exclusive model for Discount Tire. Also, considering it’s a diesel, wonder if I’ll need a higher load range...
  15. Let’s talk tread wear.

    I had considered the SST’s, but was questioning the wear at that price point. Thanks for the info. I’ll also take a quick look at the Baja Boss.
  16. Let’s talk tread wear.

    My new JLURD will be here in two weeks and I will go to 35’s before it even hits my driveway. It will be my DD, but don’t mind some road noise. On my previous JKUR, I had both KM2’s and Nitto Mud Grapplers. Both had pros and cons. What experiences are you guys having with tread wear on any M/T...
  17. Owners show off your new 4xe!

    Talk to us quickly on fuel/range. With all the mods, what EV range are you getting, and what MPGs do you get in hybrid mode. I’m tempted to go 4Xe route as my commute is long (currently on the diesel train), but concerned that once modded, I’ll get poor EV range and back to high teens for mpgs...
  18. Mounting ARB Air Compressor

    I ordered the American Adventure Labs Trunk/Floor mount. It's not cheap, but I hardly use that space and when I do, I forget what I put in there. They also make an "adapter" or "re-location" plate that is machined to fit right in the back left corner of the tub behind the roll bar. The air...
  19. Closed Loop Options on Factory Bumper

    The red hooks are nice looking that come on the Rubicon steel bumper, but make me a tad nervous not being closed completely. Anyone know of a closed loop option that is direct replacement for the red hooks that fits the factory bumper?
