  1. Anyone have 2.0 Turbo regret?

    I wouldn't give back my EcoTorque if they asked for it, and I don't worry about things that may or may not happen.
  2. 2.0 Turbo BSG discontinued in Rubicon

    A few others that posted in the thread you quoted didn't have any problems with the BSG system while in 4 LO for an extended period of time. I wonder if the OPs problem was just a faulty battery??
  3. Turbo rattle?

    Checked it on my way home from work. The top was down, but the doors were on. Every time I decelerated and the rpms reached 1400 down to 1200 I listened for any clicking/rattling sound. I didn't hear anything like you're describing. I even stuck my head out the window a couple of times.
  4. Turbo rattle?

    I have a 2-door and haven't heard any noise coming from the turbo. I'll listen for it today using the parameters you provided.
  5. Whining/Howling sound that cycles up with acceleration and down w/ deceleration. 2.0 Issue?

    Are you sure it isn't the fan? Mine gets louder at higher rpm and quiets down when I slow down. I can hear it but it's not crazy loud. As far as the hood getting hot I'd say it's probably the 100 degree weather we've been having the past few days. I bet any cars hood you touch in this...
  6. From Volkswagens to a Wrangler?

    It's a 1961. I'd get the JLU and a Ghia!!
  7. From Volkswagens to a Wrangler?

    I bought a jl and kept the VW
  8. New JL is a POS

    I had that same issue with my 2019 2-door. I was vacuuming it out one day and moved the passenger seat all the way forward. I wasn't able to slide it back. I had to get in and sit on the seat, which wasn't easy to do with it all the way forward, and then pull the latch while pushing with all my...

    Gus, on his perch.
  10. EJS damage survey with Roam rock rail sliders, Metalcloak armor skidplates, Motobilt diff cover

    rustyshakelford, have you heard when Roam will have the slim line rear bumper for sale? I've emailed Anthony but haven't heard back. I have one of their front bumpers and want to stay with them for the rear, but the wait is killing me! Pretty soon I'm going to have no choice but to go elsewhere.
  11. First sighting of 2020 Jeep JL Wrangler PHEV Plug-In Hybrid!

    I've never shown an increase in battery percentage on my electric motorcycle from engine or brake regen, but there's a 8 mile stretch of road that I travel often where I use a lot of engine regen and 0 percent battery.
  12. First sighting of 2020 Jeep JL Wrangler PHEV Plug-In Hybrid!

    I own a 2017 Zero FXS. I've always owned ICE bikes and never really considered an electric motorcycle. Until I rode one... This thing has been awesome. With 80 ft lbs of torque and a weight of 290 lbs it's hard to explain how hard it pulls of the line. I'm averaging around 60 miles per charge...
  13. FCA clarification on 2.0L & 91 octane

    Exactly, too many variables. All I know is I'm not going to be putting 87 octane in my Jeep.
  14. FCA clarification on 2.0L & 91 octane

    I picked up my Jeep late December in North Carolina. The temps were in the upper 30s lower 40s for the drive home. It was a mix of interstate, highway, and city driving. On the interstate I kept it around 75. I did notice that it would shift to a lower gear on inclines much more on the 87...
  15. FCA clarification on 2.0L & 91 octane

    I drove 600 miles home after buying my JLR 2.0L. First tank was 87 octane second was 93 octane. I got 19.7 mpg on 87 and 23.8 mpg on 93. Driving conditions were the same on both tanks. Engine felt much stronger running the higher octane.
  16. After purchasing 7 new Wranglers since 2012 I think I'm done

    Why do you think the 2020 Gladiator will use the same steering setup as the 2018 models? Seems they would build off the 2019 steering set up which has remedied most if not all steering issues. I would think the 2020 Gladiator would be the proud recipient of all updates/upgrades that fixed...
  17. Anyone have 2.0 Turbo regret?

    What "job" are you referring too?
  18. 2.0T dyno run on 87 vs 91 octane?

    In my experience with 2.0L turbos higher octane always equates to higher power and torque. I owned a VW GTI with a 2.0L turbo and Stage I flash from APR. Here's their dyno chart numbers for 91 and 93 octane: 91 octane HP - 253 TQ - 309 93 octane HP - 261 TQ - 317
  19. JL acceleration

    I have a 2-door 2.0L, but I'm in Alabama. Meet half way?
