  1. 3.6 - For Those Running Premium Fuel

    I don't care what anyone else says. I know for a fact that my Jeep runs like absolute dog shit on 87, and so I switched to 91. World of difference. I have tried going back to 87 for a couple tanks, and same result. 87 pings and knocks all over the place. Maybe others don't actually have...
  2. This is weird Easter egg on a Rubicon

    Try waving in Hawaii from a rental Jeep while on vacation. I swear I waved hundreds of times, and didn't so much as get a single wave back. And Hawaii is covered in Wranglers. This was the island of Kauai.
  3. Terrible 2.0 gas mileage?

    This thread has just convinced me not to trade in my 3.6 Manual for a 2.0 Auto, if people are really only seeing 13-17 MPG on a stock Jeep. 17 MPG I can live with in a Jeep that is lifted 3" and has 37" tires. Not so much on a stock Jeep.
  4. Recall Notice 21V-028 [1/28/21]: Manual Transmission / Clutch Overheat Covers All 2018-2021 Jeep Wranglers Produced by January 22, 2021

    That's interesting. I wonder why you would need to adjust the shift cable for a clutch replacement on a hydraulic clutch? The more I read about the clutch in the JL, the less I like it. =) Still can't believe they didn't use a pilot bearing.
  5. Recall Notice 21V-028 [1/28/21]: Manual Transmission / Clutch Overheat Covers All 2018-2021 Jeep Wranglers Produced by January 22, 2021

    Your transmission can't be downshifted, and you are okay with that? If my transmission was popping out of gear, I would definitely have them replace the transmission under warranty.
  6. JL Rubicon 35's on stock rims?

    Same here, no issues mounting spare at all. 35" BFG KO2s on stock rims.
  7. Steepest youve gone with your wrangler? Think i almost rolled mine.

    In regards to the seat belt extenders, I can't figure out why someone would wish to traverse sketchy terrain, where a rollover is possible, without wearing their seat belt?
  8. Very noisy clanking from transfer case gear slop?

    Gotcha, thanks for the tip. At first I thought you were talking about the fluid in the auto transmission.
  9. Very noisy clanking from transfer case gear slop?

    Okay, sounds like it is somewhat normal then, an not cause for concern. Does your guys' also make this same sound when you go over speed bumps or when off-road over downhill bumps?
  10. $3,995 Xtreme Recon Package For Jeep JL Wrangler Unleashed at 2021 Chicago Auto Show

    I wonder why this package is limited to the 3.6 V6, and does not include the turbo? Sounds like the 4.88 great ratio will also not be available on the 2.0 Turbo.
  11. Bad U-joint or t-case slop?

    Thanks. Seems we would be hearing about it a lot more often if it was "normal". I might have the dealer take a look at it.
  12. Bad U-joint or t-case slop?

    Did you ever figure out what the nose was? Mine does it as well, but it does it in 4H and even 2H as well. Particularly at slow speeds when the engine surges. I made another post about it with a video of the sound here...
  13. Anyone replace the bulky electric sway bar disco with a manual setup?

    Gotcha, thanks for the explanation! Do you know if the swaybar can be disconnected while still moving using this method? Or do you have to be completely stopped?
  14. Anyone replace the bulky electric sway bar disco with a manual setup?

    Could you provide more details on this? What is a resume switch, and what would the operation of the disconnect be in this configuration? Not sure I'm following.
  15. Very noisy clanking from transfer case gear slop?

    Does everyone's Rubicon transfer case make this much noise? I made a video of me pushing and pulling on the front bumper, and you can hear it clanking loudly. It also does this every time I shift (manual transmission). But the noise appears to be coming from lash/slack/slop in the transfer...
  16. If you were going to buy a sporty car for your wife?

    Vette or used Porsche 911. The Porsche is simply an amazing feat of engineering in every way. Jaw droppingly good. Test drive one if you haven't already. The nice thing about the Porsches is you can keep them for a long time and they won't look dated. Whereas the design of the Vettes don't...
  17. How did you decide on your engine?

    Driving up the mountains with the family loaded in, and 300 lbs of crap in the back reminded me just how bad that engine sucks wind. Completely gutless below 3000 RPM. I drive a manual with 35s and 4.88 gears, but had to keep it in 4th for most of the drive up, and wind it out to maintain momentum.
  18. Have all the JL problems been worked out for '21?

    I found it out of the ordinary, so was curious. That's all. If you don't care, move along. I wasn't asking you.
