  1. Is overheating an issue?

    Seems dealer techs don't read the spec. I know, shocker, right? So a lot of people have been getting Rotella done by the dealer. Seems to me to be grounds for a lawsuit should the emissions parts clog up from the extra soot...
  2. 3.0L Eco Diesel and 35s

    Yeah, the thread is about running 35s so I made an assumption. I also wish you could get 4.10s with the diesel. Maybe not necessary for 35s but 37s would benefit for sure.
  3. 3.0L Eco Diesel and 35s

    Weight is a secondary consideration. The bigger impact is the change in the tire diameter. Going from 33's to 35's roughly cuts around 6% of the effective power from the engine to the ground. Adding a few dozen pounds of tire is well under 1% extra weight. Even as additional rotational mass...
  4. 3.0L Eco Diesel and 35s

    I run mine over the mountain passes with 35's and the stock 3.73 gears. It runs fantastically, even at 12,000 feet. I had the dealer put on the tires so I never ran the stock 33" tires for a comparison. But I have plenty of power to get moving and when I'm on the uphill grades at altitude I...
  5. 3.0L Eco Diesel and 35s

    Not that I noticed. But I maybe wasn't at full stuff and full turn on the obstacles. I run the swaybar disconnected so I can articulate pretty good.
  6. 3.0L Eco Diesel and 35s

    35" wheels would make for some pretty huge tires. Fitment would be difficult to say the least. If you're really looking for 35" tires, that's a lot easier. If you have a Rubicon, you can put almost any 35" tire out there on the stock 17" wheels and run them with no other mods. I have some...
  7. Is open Jeep a dying art?

    Way back when, Jeep made the Dakar concept Jeep. https://www.allpar.com/threads/1997-jeep-dakar-concept-car-the-first-four-door-wrangler.228874/ I would absolutely love to have a full load bearing steel body that could take a rack and all that stuff. Jeep would sell the crap out of this if...
  8. What are the dumbest comments youve gotten about your jeep?

    I'm waiting for the inevitable "You know you're filling up with diesel?" remarks...
  9. Belly pans on 3.0 Diesel

    Read the instructions fully before you start pulling factory bolts. Only a couple of the gas tank bolts come out at a time. Have two sets of hands at least. And a floor jack or two. Attach all bolts loosely at first. Don't torque down until you're done getting everything in. You can get at...
  10. Just back from Colorado trip. Some stats:

    Be careful going from Iowa to Colorado. It can be addictive. I ended up just not coming back in 2014.
  11. What are the dumbest comments youve gotten about your jeep?

    I was looking at a TJ back in the day. It had some aftermarket add-ons that were listed on a separate window sticker. One of them was an 8,000 pound "wench" (instead of a "winch"). I asked if a hefty girl like that would exceed the GVWR of the Jeep. The sales guy stared at me with a deer in...
  12. EcoDiesel JLU Rubicon Broke down on Rubicon Trail, Broken Fuel Separator Housing

    The Metal Cloak skid plates are seriously beefy and provide easy access. Pics here: https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/belly-pans-on-3-0-diesel.67819/page-2#post-1597718
  13. Just got home from Bronco event...

    Don't kid yourself. TFL is as much about getting clicks as everyone else. It's their business model. Sure, they take a different approach. But that too is part of their business model to appeal to people over other channels.

  15. Who folds their back seats down, and why?

    That's not as hard as you might think. #notbragging
  16. Who folds their back seats down, and why?

    I try to avoid it. I have a Jeep with a manual and one without. So I can brag but I can't at the same time. Same here. My seats go up and down as I need them to.
  17. Belly pans on 3.0 Diesel

    I ordered my Metal Cloak skids 7/2. They arrived 7/23. Not bad turnaround time. The fuel filter access is nicely done. Four T-45 screws hold it in place. The second picture is at an angle. There is plenty of room for the filter to come straight down and out. I'm only at 3,000 miles on my...
  18. Who folds their back seats down, and why?

    When I'm making parts runs I do.
  19. V6 eTorque or Ecodiesel.

    I have a Rubicon diesel on 35s with no lift. I have no need or desire to regear the 3.73s it came with. Plenty of power, even at 12,000 feet on the trails. And it crawls over the rocks like a tractor. When I'm on the highway I average mid 20s or better for fuel mileage. Depends on how fast...
