  1. Very Happy Day!

  2. How long do Jeeps usually last?

    Simply taking good care and following the maintenance schedule will increase the life of a vehicle. I also have done all my own maintenance and it is pretty straightforward. I had to see the dealer about the manual transmission recall (add a sleeve over a line) and the steering box TSB and I...
  3. How long do Jeeps usually last?

    I see a lot of Jeeps with north of 150,000 miles on them. There is a perception that Jeeps are less reliable than a Toyota or Honda, but those Honda's and Toyota's are not being modified heavily and off-roaded on rough trails. I have put 57,000 miles on my 2019 JLUR in 26 months and I have not...
  4. I never thought I’d say this

    Move to Tucson, we are on the third level of hell compared to Phoenix being on the sixth level. A little cooler up here.
  5. I never thought I’d say this

    Southern Arizona has gotten 12"+ of rain this summer, which has been fantastic. As the temperatures drop into the low 90's and 80's I will take the doors off and drop the soft top. I can't wait for 8 months of open air driving.
  6. Need help deciding between two Rock Rails

    I decided on the Rock Hard angled up rock sliders and they are beasts and the attachment is incredible. I don't know what you would have to do to damage them with all the attachment points. I had no issues removing the body or frame bolts, but used the go 1/2 turn counterclockwise and then back...
  7. Any other guys ordering Tuscadero?

    Good for you and her. That is awesome. When I ordered my JLUR in 2019, I let my daughter who had just finished leukemia treatment pick the color of the Jeep. She chose Hellayella and I couldn't be happier since she still talks about the color and how much she loves that we got a Jeep!
  8. How Many Miles on Your Manual Transmission/Clutch?

    56K on my 26 month old 2019 JLUR and no issues. Recall #1 done and waiting on #2. Plan to go to centerforce if they have resolved the issues they had initially.
  9. What is JLU's actual fuel tank capacity?

    That is based on recording fill-ups for over two years and 52,000 miles. I have never added more than 20.016 gallons and that was on Low Miles as the range.
  10. CR attempts to understand the Jeep thing

    I fought with HR all the time to let me see the resumes of all applicants. I would identify those that I thought weren't full of crap (20,000 hours using a software tool over 3 years) and talked to them on the phone. I asked pointed questions about tool and various hypothetical scenarios. This...
  11. CR attempts to understand the Jeep thing

    I don't even reference them for a vacuum cleaner. I used to look at the ratings, but I soon realized the folks who have limited issues rarely provide feedback. I held off buying a Jeep based on all the poor reliability and mileage stories. I bought my 2019 JLUR and it has been flawless and is...
  12. 2 Door Love

    I believe solid state batteries with a 450 Wh/Kg will be the inflection point to make the conversion to BEV. I really am hoping that the next few SEMA shows bring an ever increasing number of battery conversions for the Wrangler. Electric is the future and I would love to keep all my upgrades on...
  13. Stranded! (Vent)

    Sorry to hear you are going through this. We drove to Southern Colorado at the end of May and in the morning to do some off-roading on passes the Jeep wouldn't start. It was just shy of two-years and 50,000 miles on it. I tried jumping it with my Audew jump starter to no avail. AAA came and...
  14. 2 Door Love

    I have too many children and that is one reason I have a 4-door, but they are getting older and will hopefully move out. My long-term plan is to get the two-door all electric with a 6-speed manual after it is out for a year. I plan to convert my 4-door (6-speed manual already) to electric as...
  15. GECKO Wrangler JL Club

    It will be as easy to find as Hella Yella. Gecko Green is a great looking color. Bright colors really suit Jeeps.
  16. Dawn powerwash!

    I think bacon grease is vegan as well, I mean pigs generally eats plants right? I am a second order vegetarian .... I eat things that eat plants. I mean they are getting their greens and there is no reason for both of us to do that. I am also making sure I leave plenty of greens for others.
  17. 4.88 or 5.13?

    My local transmission shop that everyone in the Jeep community raves about told me install 5.13s in JL 15X compared to the 4.88s I was considering. I am going to 35s, but will also be towing a 1700 lb expedition trailer on weekends. I am going with the Dana Spicer gears and I trust his input. I...
  18. Is Bronco worth the wait?

    If you just go talk to anyone in Congress you can make contact.
  19. Is Bronco worth the wait?

    I got my wife a 2018 convertible Mustang and I admit I haven't seen a new Bronco or messed with its electronics, and actually have no intention, but it the system is anything like the Mustang there is no way I would buy the vehicle. My JLURs 8.4" system is fantastic for easily navigating between...
  20. Auto Start/Stop

    Good info. Moving all my accessories to the ground stud on the side!
