  1. Rubicon Owners, have you waterproofed your Sway Bar connector?

    For the JK guys JKS p/n 9500 is a cable disconnect conversion around $250 vs. $2200 list for the assembly from Mopar. I don't think they have JL support yet due to Covid. Give them time!
  2. 2021 Jeep JLR problems in first few days

    If it's on corners only it's spider gears which aren't serviceable on RUBICON. RUBICON"s don't have clutches. You'll get a new diff assembly or possibly a complete axle assembly. I'd push hard for the complete assy. as new as it is. 45+ years doing rearends....Happy hunting!
  3. Wreck in a leased JL

    Some insurance companies will call this a claim if you inquire regardless if you collect or not.
  4. Dealer wants me to sign a new lease contract

    If you sell your leased vehicle at the end of term you'll do better than turn in. Think of it as cashing in your equity. Have done this several times and never lost money.
  5. $500 to install bumper???

    Was said bumper purchased from your installer? If not throw them a bone next time . Shops with overhead don't make it on labor alone.
  6. Jeep snobbery - RANT

    I'm late to this party. I get it the other way. You've got scratches on that pretty Rubicon! they say. My response is I don't ride a dirt bike to the mall ! Do what you want and give the rest 20% of the Jeep Wave.:surprised:
  7. Mojito vs bikini vs punk'n?? Which color to get?

    I was going to get a Punkin' 2 door with tan top and interior....then my favorite...Hella Yella became available late. Pick any color ya want it'll make YOU happy!
  8. Tire Carrier for 37inch tire

    I'm running a Rugged Ridge hinge w/Teraflex adjustable carrier. It supports Dick Cepek Extreme Country 37x12.50r17 on Weld Ledge 17 x 9 beadlock @ 4.5 b/s very nicely. The tire assembly can be adjusted to pinch the tailgate hinge ....No rattles! Teraflex mount is in the top holes for departure...
  9. Is it hard to keep your interior cool?

    Find your local vehicle wrap guy. Have him do a white panel on the top. Stay back about 3 inches from the edges and it's not readily noticeable. I did this on a '15 JK with a black hardtop and it made a 30 degree difference in full sun on 95 degree day compared to another JK parked beside it.
  10. Are Yeti coolers worth the $$?

    I bought Yeti 42 Qt. in 2015, at the time they were the only game. First trip to Moab I put in a 5 lb. block and touched it up with cube ice for drinks a couple times. Went 8 days and still had about a 1 Qt. piece in the bottom. Only opened twice maybe 3 times a day....that is the key! Are they...

  14. Re gear and found weird wear and these chunks in it

    With those patterns and .007 backlash with no noise button 'em up! Your gear guy is better than you are giving credit. As far as the trash the only way to know is complete disassembly.
  15. Re gear and found weird wear and these chunks in it

    So you ran this 250 miles on new gears in 4 hi? Doink! there's part of the problem. New gears run in is 25-30 miles light load. Stop to cool completely. Do this 3-4 times. No sustained high speeds or towing for 500 miles. Change oil and drive like ya stole it! Kind of a brief synopsis from most...

  17. Supplies you keep in your JL

    Wow I only saw one shovel in all these posts! They work great as a backup fire extinguisher. Short ones hide behind the spare tire easily.
