  1. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    This thread, and the election results have proven to me, to keep my 2013 and not to worry about a new vehicle. I have given up the idea completely. It will be because it won't be worth a tinkers damn in year, with all the new environmental crap coming down the pike. I also think Jeep, Ford...
  2. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    (3) Question - Dead Chassis Batteries in a Few Weeks? | Page 2 | RVForums.com Ok, not sure if this example will show what is wrong with OP's jeep, and others, some of you hotshots chime in and let us know if this trick will show up bad electrics. Interesting repair tip as well. Ignore that...
  3. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    All - After reading here, and the Gladiator Forum, I have decided to keep my 2013 for a while yet. This year has been one for the record books, and although almost over I wont be a statistic for it. I will keep reading, but I am now not in market for new vehicle. If the RV sells, may change...
  4. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    Don't know if anyone remembers, but about 10-15 years ago, automakers were talking about a 24V electrical system, it got shelved because of the costs involved, and sort of figured IC's and better communications between components lower power requirements made up that difference. Computers are...
  5. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    Monty talks and bulls**t walks. It's all down to money. and believe it or not, .05c makes a hell of a difference when talking about 200K vehicles. They can fix it in house, or have to pay dealer, fix it they will.
  6. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    All - You all every single one who is experiencing this issue, needs to file an NHTSA report, outlining exactly what happened, and what Jeep is doing about it. This sounds like major recall, wiring harness is faulty, or some computer is faulty. Also mention the loose fuses because many don't...
  7. Any regrets going automatic?

    I have been driving a standard transmission for the last 30+ years, and as long as my knees work, going to keep doing so. I have better throttle response with manual, I have better 4X4 control with manual, I can use the transmission to slow me down if hauling load, and speed up with more power...
  8. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    Although I have not read every reply. I would take a good bet, there is an electrical connection which has become loose. My Story. Picked up brand new 300K motorhome in June 2019. We started across USA from West Coast heading to GA. Got to eastern Oregon, and low voltage warning on ECM...

    I know this sounds strange, but call RV Coach Glass in Coburg, OR - https://coachglass.com/contact-us-rv-specialty-glass-distributor-united-states/ - The replaced windshield on my 2013 Sahara a few years ago, great job OEM glass, all of it. See if they can get the glass and ship to you then...
  11. Discount pricing - Order vs Off the Lot

    As an aside, we looked at a Gladiator PU the other day when JK was in for some service. Wow, what a cool truck, got extra storage under back seat, so we talked about trading both cars in for one of those. The dealer only sells MSRP Sticker, since that is not going to happen to me. I told him...
  12. Park much?

    Hey Guys/Gals, my 2013 does the same thing. Every since I put new tires on it, it is not as tight as it was before. Tomorrow, having front end alignment checked. It's frustrating, because I used to be able to put this thing straight as a level, now not so much. Frustrated too!
  13. Steering - a careful analysis

    All - Just put new Michelin tires on 2013 Sahara UL. 69K miles or so. Air Pressure is set to 35#, checked. The vehicle wanders more now then it did with the almost bald old Michelins on it. They are the exact tire I used before. I believe I have the recommended 500 miles on them so they are...

  15. LOL, My favorite convenience feature in my JL. Yours too?

    I like my current 2013 JLU Sahara, but the 8.4 and backup camera are the kickers for me if I win lottery. Going to buy new motorhome, and keep this one for 3 more years. Putting new tires on it Friday, really looking forward to those. But I think I need the truck anyway, and want them to iron...
  16. Jeep Dealers Are Offering Up To $9,500 Off New Wranglers

    Have driven by several dealers in my travels lately. They are "stocked to the gills" with Wranglers, and to clear those, it's going to have to be way better than 9K+ for me to take the bite on a vehicle that won't have all the things I want, and then be stuck with an auto transmission which I...
  17. First Thoughts

    You will miss having the extra room with the unlimited. I can speak from experience, Owned a 2009 Unlimited Sahara, and then upgraded to 2013 Unlimited Sahara, to do what? Tow behind a 40' motorhome. But, we always need to take stuff with us, which won't go into the RV, so the jeep get it's...
  18. Track bar sheared off at the weld. I feel like I’m cursed with my new JL

    Gave buying a new one a lot of thought. Unless I win lottery, going to keep my 2013 for at least three more years, either they will get better, or not, and that gives me time to figure out what to do. Really want the truck, but with all the issues of the JL, just not sure I want issues now.
  19. Help! Squirrels eating front bumper

    We left the jeep at our cousins house, so we could go back to WA and get the household goods, gone about a month. Did not notice anything for a while, but came out of restaurant in Cumming, GA and jeep would not start, hmmmm, battery was fine. Disconnected the neg cable, hooked It back up...
  20. AMAZING Deal on my 2019 JLUR order!

    I believe you should have contacted Dave Smith Jeep Chrysler, in Kellogg, ID and get their price over the phone, believe, you could have gotten it down to 45K, at least that was the quote I got last Summer, and I put on everything except the cold group and the auto trans for a JLUR. So I think...
