  1. Permanently disable engine auto start stop (ESS) at stoplights?

    My apologies. I have no direct experience with SmartStopStart. I did indeed paint this defeat mechanism with a broad brush, I should not have done that. My bad. However, my primary point still stands. If you need to bypass the Security Gateway Module (for whatever reason), you're removing...
  2. Permanently disable engine auto start stop (ESS) at stoplights?

    All, These ESS threads are just so interesting... People are so damn religious about ESS and why use it (or most prevalently in this forum) why not. I have one very humble but honest, sincere and controversial question: How many people that absolutely hate ESS, and are willing to yank it the...
  3. How high (yes...altitude) did you take your JL today?

    Argentine Pass near Georgetown CO at 13,000 ft. Actually just shy, the pass still had over a foot of snow. Stopped to see the old abandoned Santiago Mine. Used Leventhworth Creek Trail on the way down. Last two pics show a good part of the trail requires driving through the actual creek with...
  4. So is there a real issue with the Tazer Mini?

    Not much to add other than zero issues with the Mini. However, I have a Sport S with the UConnect 3 5". No cellular access, no navigation, satellite or over-the-air updates. BTW, I've since added a satellite radio that connects directly with the UConnect 3 with a Viatech interface module, but...
  5. What did you name your Jeep JL?

    Obviously Snoopy...
  6. Mopar 2 inch lift with 2021

    Chad, If you are a suspension purest, I agree that the adjustable trackbar is a good investment. My front axle moved almost 0.5 inches to the drivers side with the Mopar lift. Thankfully I'm not a perfectionist and running without the trackbar is absolutely no issue (for me). No steering...
  7. Pics please: Sport S with 35s on 3" lift or 295/70/17s on 2" lift

    Chris, I've posted these pics in other threads but I don't mind repeating. Interesting that I'm your first response. A lot of way cool lifted Sports with 35's shown in a plethora of other threads. For me I went with the all-terrain Goodyear Duratrac 35x12.5x17's (actually 34.8"), on the...
  8. Help me decide: do I need just tires or wheels and tires

    Karl, Everyone has to follow their own idea of what works for their rig. Your build deserves your own touch, given your own desires and budget. However the more feedback provided, the easier it is to help you visualize what you're after. Good luck and have fun with this. Word of warning...
  9. Do you wave at Gladiators?

    And the vast majority of these Wrangler pickup drivers wave back.
  10. 35" and 37" JL pics with lift kit

    Posted these same pics in other threads but here is my entry with the Mopar lift on Fuel Ammo Anthracite 17x9" (-12mm offset) with the Goodyear 35x12.5x17 Duratrac Wrangler ATs. I went with this rubber for their lighter weight, winter performance and overall All Terrain rating since this is my...
  11. Any engine with ESS

    Lawrence, et., al., I've posted before in this thread and while I don't disagree with your points, I'd like you to consider another angle. What do you value more, a starter motor or your engine? Have you considered the extra life of the rings and pistons by a lower duty cycle due to the ICE...
  12. Can we see some pics of Mopar 2" lift on a 2 door JL?

    Just installed 35's on Mopar 2.5" lift. After the tires installed overall ride height about 4.5" above stock. Really enjoying this setup both on and especially off-road. Highly recommended. However, I won't consider any larger wheels on my Sport S due to the 3.45 diffs. Still, the 8-speed...
  13. Best 35" A/T tires for the money

    Danno, I would have preferred a lower load rating for sure, but my take is that this tire was intended (hence designed) for a different problem domain. That of a light to medium duty truck, clearly for a much heavier and higher load capacity than any Jeep. As with most larger tires we put on...
  14. Black is played out...Show off your non-black wheels!

    Needed to wait nearly 15 weeks for these beauties due to the CV insanity. Fuel Ammo Anthracite 17x9 (-12mm offset), mated to Goodyear Duratrac Wrangler All-Terrain 35x12.5x17s. Looks and feels amazing. Runs great both on and off road. I may be just a little biased, but I just now may have...
  15. Before and after Sport on 35s with lift

    Here's another before and after perspective. Just completed Mopar 2.5" with 35's on a 2 door Sport S. Couldn't be happier. Runs well both on and off-road. Jay
  16. If “not” the 2 inch Mopar lift for 35s then??

    Kasey, Here's my Mopar 2.5" (almost 3) with 35s. Absolutely love em. Zero issues other than very slight front axel offset to the left. Handles great both on and off-road. I'm sure you can find better, but not likely at the same price. But lifting is like religion to some. I just wanted...
  17. What did you do WITH your Jeep today.

    What did I do WITH my Jeep today? Got it high altitude muddy.
  18. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

  19. Best 35" A/T tires for the money

    Off-road report follow-up. Argentine Pass and the old abandoned Santiago Mine were no trouble and the first off-road locations accomplished by the new wrangler rubber. Aired down to 15 psi and followed the rocky old railroad grade from Georgetown CO up to the pass. To get here, high clearance...
