  1. Supplies you keep in your JL

    Is that you, Jason? :surprised:
  2. Proposal of a cheaper variant of Wrangler without 4WD

    Great idea! A boxy, expensive vehicle that handles like UPS van, and steers like my rope steering system on my home made wood hill cart...a vehicle that is out of its element both on road and off.
  3. I will be waving at the new Broncos

    I even had a JK owner tell me "nice Jeep" when he got in his JK and I was loading my JL at HomeD. Even a JK owner... ;)
  4. Motor Trend confirms steering issue fix made to 2020 Jeep JL (gear valve tuning & pump calibration changes)

    1. extra (back) "lash" creates added stress by allowing a "running start", if too much. It cannot lower stresses in the box. 2. There may be some merit here. So, lets run the numbers. (added: Sorry, I should explain. The prevailing concern is the JL steering box has an aluminum housing and...
  5. Motor Trend confirms steering issue fix made to 2020 Jeep JL (gear valve tuning & pump calibration changes)

    My 2018 JLUR had about 3" from one side to the other, at the steering wheel. The worse situation I noted was a winding road at high speed. When a reversal of steering input was needed, as in an "S" turn, I would have to pass thru the dead zone before any steering input to the opposite...
  6. Any small lifts that will perform better than stock Rubi suspension?

    My Rubicon springs, shocks, and control arms are stock, as are the tires/wheels (I do have aftermarket tierod, draglink, and trackbars for improved steering). If I were looking for a better riding shock, I would look to an adjustable, in particular I would look at King shocks. I have Kings on...
  7. Cracked Windshield Club

    Safelite has a non-OEM windshield selection for JLs without collision avoidance systems. They also use OEM as a selection.
  8. Jeeper shot and killed in Sierra County California

    I hope the perp is violated daily in prison.
  9. Synergy Jeep JL / JLU / JT Front Track Bar and Sector Shaft Brace

    No way to know if the bushing is spinning unless you disassemble it.
  10. Synergy Jeep JL / JLU / JT Front Track Bar and Sector Shaft Brace

    I'm just thinking its an answer looking for a problem.
  11. track bar/ sector shaft brace

    On my JL, it comes apart pretty easy. I think this is because the knuckle is aluminum. I unscrewed the nut til it was flush with the end of the stud, and used a block of hardwood on the end of the end joint stud to hit with a hammer (steel).
  12. Synergy Jeep JL / JLU / JT Front Track Bar and Sector Shaft Brace

    If you're going to the trouble to make a new pillow block and bushing, consider putting an internal groove all the way around the bushing, to distribute the grease. Otherwise, it goes into the clearance and just squirts out nearby and there is no "reservoir" for the grease. But in assessing...
  13. track bar/ sector shaft brace

    I found that the allen wrench size for the set screw was indeed metric. I can't recall for sure, but 4.5 mm sounds about right. Also, I jacked my front end and removed the right wheel, and disconnected the draglink from the steering knuckle, then supported it with that bucket in this picture...
  14. track bar/ sector shaft brace

    I recently removed the sector shaft pillow block to check if the grease hole was aligned with the zerk. I found that the bronze bushing was loose in the aluminum pillow block. After some thought, I just left the pillow block sector shaft support off. The trackbar support is still there. It...
  15. So which aftermarket part improved steering the most to you ?

    Yeah, over 40 psi is well over appropriate pressure. I've tried as low as 25 for extended periods and as I tightened steering components, and eliminated play, I went progressively upward to where I am today at 35 (hot).
  16. So which aftermarket part improved steering the most to you ?

    Airing down didn't help my steering. Still had slop. But it rode nicer. Steering dampers and caster won't fix steering slop.
  17. So which aftermarket part improved steering the most to you ?

    First thing this morning, I elected to adjust the box again. I jacked the front, removed the right wheel, disconnected the draglink, removed the intake tube to get access to the adjustment screw, and adjusted it until I could feel binding while turning the wheel (in the center range) then...
  18. Looking for a little insight on going from a "performance car" to a new Wrangler JL

    For me, the fastest bike I recall riding was a Honda Hurricane 1100. I think it was a 10 second 1/4 miler. I remember a ride down a street I still drive, where that bike had the front end off the ground passing thru 100 mph. Long time ago... Still hard to imagine one of those Dodge Demons...
