  1. Basic Speaker upgrade

    Following since I'm interested in getting a new head unit with CarPlay and some new speakers.
  2. Should I get a JL?

    Sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders - you have a plan for the future and are currently living within your means and working hard. My only comment now is while I very much respect Dave Ramsey and think his advice would help almost everyone become more financially literate and...
  3. Welp...Nacho and Hella are done

    Hellayellas unite! Have to say, I think Nacho is awful but hey, that's why they make all sorts of colors and they come and go. Other than Nacho, I'm a huge fan of any Jeep that's not in greyscale. The new pink is certainly not my thing but someone has to be excited about it and I'll be excited...
  4. Should I get a JL?

    At 20 years old? Nah, OP should join the subreddit /r/personalfinance and read their wiki and follow the savings flowchart. That alone will get him very financially well off. Consult with one when you're 30-40 when you have kids, more assets, and a career. To do so now would be a waste of...
  5. New dad! Kids, baby’s!

    Totally agree - my Jeep makes me smile every time I look at it or drive it! You can always pull the front doors off and leave the rear doors on if you want to drive doorless while keeping some protection for the little one in the back. You also might want to look into getting a Sunrider soft...
  6. New dad! Kids, baby’s!

    I've got a 3.5 year old and a 6 month old and the 4-door Wrangler is a great family vehicle. It is fairly high, so installing the infant car seat is slightly more difficult than my wife's Forester because you have to lift it higher but it's not bad. My older daughter can climb into her car seat...
  7. What does a typical Wrangler "refresh" consist of?

    ^ I agree, which is why I don't think ventilated seats will ever be in a Wrangler. I'm skeptical about power seats, but if they can do heated seats perhaps it's less of a concern. I personally think my Sport cloth seats are very comfortable. IMO the only thing I'd change is adding an adjustable...
  8. What does a typical Wrangler "refresh" consist of?

    I know the JK got an engine update (3.8L -> 3.6L) and an interior overhaul. I don't remember which happened first. I'd guess something similar for JL, but not for a little bit longer. All the effort they've put in for the 392, 4xe, etc. makes me think they're probably not going to invest in...
  9. Jeep steering is great!

    Yeah, my Jeep isn't as tight/direct as my wife's Forester and nowhere near my old Mazda3, but I never expected it to be. I figured I'd be a little worse than my FIL's F-150. And it is, now. It tracks pretty straight but does need to be corrected when I hit bumps in the road (which isn't a...
  10. Jeep steering is great!

    Mine needed the new steering box to not wander all over the place. It's still not great but I also don't have a baseline for what a good JL feels like - I've only driven my own. It's good enough for me, though. I'm not interested in spending the time and money to try new suspension/steering parts.
  11. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    I thought I didn't have this issue until this spring when sure enough, the paint on all of my door hinges started bubbling. Not sure where everyone else lives but we get a lot of road salt here in NEOhio. I'm not driving much because of COVID but apparently have gotten enough exposure to cause...
  12. Gecko vs Mojito?

    I love Mojito and Bikini. Life's too short to drive a greyscale Jeep... I personally like the early JL colors vs. what we have now. But that Hydro Blue is pretty sweet.
  13. A Wrangler Owner/Enthusiast/Builder honest review of the 2021 Bronco -- long.

    My '18 needed a new steering box under the TSB and its steering improved substantially. It's still not nearly as direct as my wife's Forester but I don't expect it to. The JLU has much more bounce and cabin shake around town but I love driving it. I'm thrilled the Bronco is out there -...
  14. What are the dumbest comments youve gotten about your jeep?

    The Mazda Miata is still going strong and there are rumors of a new 3.0L I6 powered RWD Mazda6 in development. New Supra, new generation GT86, the Lexus LC500 is stunning and they're also stuffing a 5.0L V8 in the new IS500 - all from Toyota group. Honda has the Civic Type R and NSX and still...
  15. Opinions needed. Old truck or trade for glad

    I'm definitely in the Gladiator camp. You can get one used that will help alleviate the cost and the anxiety of beating it up because it'll probably already have dings and dents. I also just fundamentally don't understand why people are all worried about using a new vehicle. They're made to be...
  16. Sad Day, Jeep Accident, Advice?

    Dang, really? Seems pretty fixable and you're going to lose your ass selling this one with recent accident history and paying a premium for a new one given the current automotive market.
  17. I gotta admit

    I'm with you - Chief Blue would be what I'd want if I didn't get a Hellayella already. Or Sarge'n'tan. I personally like that Jeep cycles through a lot of different colors each year. Way better to have short-lived color runs than deal with the greyscale plus red and dark blue palettes that...
  18. I have a $80k Wrangler and didn't even know it. What's your rig's final / current cost?

    $31.2k to buy (plus tax and title), plus ~$2k for the soft top, $1k for the rails, and another $300 for interior stuff like phone mount, interior organizers, grab handles, and entry guards leaves me around $34.5k which is still less than the sticker price of $37,200. Seeing some of your mod...
  19. Who actually uses A/C?

    Indiana is plenty hot and humid enough in the summer to warrant A/C. I know because I went to college there and now live in NEOhio. I use my A/C all the time in the summer and frequently in the winter to remove fog from the windows. I would never, ever considering not optioning A/C. And you're...
  20. If you sold your Jeep today, how and what’s next?

    Sweet! Make sure to post in this thread if you do end up getting the TRX!
