  1. Advice regarding winch/bumper for a new off-roader

    That's a really good point, and I actually hadn't considered that! Though now it seems kinda obvious --- replacing plastic with metal and adding a substantive winch etc. does have consequences!
  2. Advice regarding winch/bumper for a new off-roader

    Thanks very much for your advice everyone --- very helpful!
  3. Advice regarding winch/bumper for a new off-roader

    Hi everyone, Well, it turns out that the Jeep JL Sport S (2 DR) we bought last year as a fun convertible for daily driving has morphed into an off-road obsession for my wife and I! We found that USFS "roads" up in the Sierras are a wonderful way to get away from it all, and find a trail head or...
  4. Where's the love for the 2dr JL

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading the posts on this thread! I'm pretty sure the 2-door Wrangler will never die; after all, there are people like me that wanted a 2-door soft top and would settle for nothing else. I have to say, the vehicle is one of the best purchases enjoyment-wise I have ever made...
  5. Chad's Colorado 2 Door onroad and offroad fun

    Looks like you are having fun with this! The positioning of the license plate on the front bumper made me smile, as I was thinking "Well, that negates the whole bridge toll thing, as it's pointed at the ground" :) Anyway, the reason I am posting is to ask a quick question: Most pictures I have...
  6. Chad's Colorado 2 Door onroad and offroad fun

    I just came across this thread, and I have to say, I'm glad to see there are mods available for 2-door JLs! Being a fellow JL Sport owner, with the same color and soft top (mine is just the stock soft top), I will bookmark this post for future possible upgrade ideas! My wife and I would like...
  7. ESS when parking

    I posted a question about this here awhile ago when I first got our Jeep --- I was just getting used to the ESS (which doesn't bug me except for this very issue!) and thought it was crazy that it would shut down then restart when you put it in park (though I suppose it depends on your timing...
  8. Customer Satisfaction Notification: A quick question.

    Hey all, So we received the FCA "Customer Satisfaction Notification" by snail mail today regarding the 2018 JL steering issue and wobble that I am sure has already been discussed ad nauseam in many threads. Yet I still can't help but to ask a basic question: Since we have not experienced this...
  9. The Jeep Wave and the Gladiator

    Some years ago, I rode my roommate's motorcycle from time to time, and one thing I remember from those days was that on 2-lane roads if you passed another bike going in the opposite direction most people waved. It was organic, and always made me smile. I figured it was a mutual acknowledgment...
  10. New 2019 Rubicon--YeeHaw!

    Congrats! A great vehicle, impossible not to enjoy. Btw, one of the fun things about being a new Jeep owner is you notice and appreciate all the other Jeeps on the highway. The older ones are particularly cool, especially when it's clear the owners have taken great care of them! (ps. When...
  11. A quick question about gasoline smell.

    Hey guys, Thanks for the replies. From what Placebo and The Fixer said, I agree that it's just normal, and I guess I was just noticing it for the first time because I am now pulling it into the garage! Just goes to show, cleaning your garage will lead to confusion! --Bill PS. Rahneld, it...
  12. A quick question about gasoline smell.

    Hi guys, This may be an entirely stupid question (not being a mechanic and all), but I thought I would ask. From a cold start, when I move my JL from the driveway into the garage (or vice versa, backing it out into the driveway), I smell a fairly strong gasoline odor. It's sharp, and not what...
  13. What is your 4wd pedigree? Prior vehicles and experience thread.

    A nice thread --- it made me remember my relationship with vehicles over the years! With regard to Jeep ownership, and 4X4's in general, my love for them can be traced back to borrowing my Dad's 4X4 truck in the day to head "up north" for a weekend of cross-country skiing with a cabin full of...
  14. One Touch Power Top terrors in car wash

    So living in CA, we don't have the bitter cold or salt to contend with, but washing the Jeep (2D soft top JL) was something I was wondering about after I purchased it. I decided that my days of running through a car wash were over (being top down almost all year), and I found that hand washing...
  15. Confessions of a Mall Crawler

    What a terrific post! It really does capture the feeling that my wife and I have every time we get in our Jeep (2 door JL soft top). Top down all summer, and damn if a trip to the grocery store isn't great fun! I mean if you dream about a convertible? I can't imagine anything better (ok well...
  16. mpg with ess & w/o ess

    Thanks for the analysis! This is the first vehicle I've owned with ESS. I don't mind it, except in one instance: When I pull into my driveway and stop, it sometimes shuts the engine off before I put it in park (automatic). So basically, it restarts the engine just for me to put it into park...
  17. Soft top rattle

    Hi Chris, I had this exact problem with my 2-door JL soft top (recent purchase!) There's not much info on it as far as I can tell, but that side-to-side rattle? It drove me crazy! Anyway, I think you diagnosed the problem correctly --- namely, that the glide channel and wheels have a bit too...
  18. What is the most popular color?

    I entirely agree! Though I have to say, I went with granite in our recent 2-door JL purchase because I've been driving around a fire engine red Toyota Rav 4 for ten years (lol insert joke there!), and there's only so many "What'd you buy, a minivan fire truck?" jokes one can take. :) But...
  19. Jeeps and dogs

    Hi all --- my apologies for what is likely a question asked many times, but I'm a new Jeep owner here (2DR JL Sport S, absolutely love it btw!). Basically, I am wondering about what others do with regard to having your dogs in the back when the top is down --- I guess what I am worried about is...
  20. Do only suckers buy off of the lot?

    Hi Brandon, I would say this (my two cents worth!): When we went looking we had something in mind (JL 2-door, certain color options), but being on a budget, we had to be careful, and focused on what we really wanted, and what we could afford. For us, if a dealer was unable to even entertain...
