  1. 2022 Jeep JL Willys Extreme Recon Announced for $40,930; Orders Open in October

    Even if it keeps the M186/Advantek front axle, it might be more durable than the Bronco IFS.
  2. How do I get the front axle LCA bolts out?

    F-16 Crew Chief and automotive machinist once upon a time here. I get stink eye when I ask that my lug nuts not have a torque stick used on them. I feel like it’s a reasonable request. It’s not like it’s rocket science knowledge I’m asking for. lol It’s difficult to find people who care...
  3. How do I get the front axle LCA bolts out?

    I don’t know if it’s been mentioned but you can go to 130 ft lbs and then go 40° rotation of the bolt with an impact like the factory spec. (Double check that bolt torque and degree spec! It’s been a while so don’t trust my memory.) There’s a bolt torque table around here with that info. That’s...
  4. When did your battery die?

    It might be insightful for everyone to say which battery their Wrangler came with. It might account for some life difference?
  5. When did your battery die?

    Only 33k miles & ~1.5 years since we bought it brand new.. 19 Sahara 2.0 w/eTorque and it only came with the 600cca battery. It didn’t sit much. lol No warning. Went out one morning and it was deader than a door nail. Build date was in July ‘19. Purchased in Oct ‘19.
  6. JL Dana 30 & Dana 35 - how strong are they?

    Oh and tires as another factor. Like a slick on a drag car, aggressive MT’s and maybe tires like my BB AT’s will be harder on the driveline? But…maybe they will bite better to not need throttle to get over the obstacle??
  7. JL Dana 30 & Dana 35 - how strong are they?

    I can’t say I’ve really pushed mine. 4.56’s, 34.5” tires, RCV’s, stock open diff, Motobilt cover. I’ve gone over some 17” boulders but I didn’t need throttle to get up and over. I’m curious what the limit is though. With my setup, I decided keeping it open but being able to crank the wheels...
  8. Harbor Freight Compressor to the Rescue

    I started doing that because I got tired of waiting to put my Viair 440p into the nylon bag. Just keep an old water bottle nearby. I usually still wait a couple of minutes and then use the water hoping it won’t crack anything.
  9. Installed my 2.0L Turbo Decal.

    You may be able to message him here. He runs this FB group too - Jeep JL Wrangler 2.0L Owners Group
  10. What is a good tool bag?

    Blue Ridge Overland tool bag with 6 individual pouches here too. I have 90+ % of my tools, zip ties, duct tape, bailing wire, magnet, emergency needs, etc in there. The other things I bring are too big like a torque wrench. It’s one of my favorite purchases.
  11. Phone Holder Alternatives?

    I have around 13k miles and a few off road/trail outings with the Rubigrid by Bulletpoint. It’s still great for the money but there is just a hair more movement on washboard roads than there initially was. If you run it, I’d put all the 20mm balls on one after another that way it’s future...
  12. List of Overlanding Trailers and Offroad Campers

    It seems it makes more sense to have the clamshell that direction as opposed to the Ursa Minor orientation just so you can reach the tallest part easier.
  13. Rubicon Springs on Willys

    If you plan on a winch, go ahead and do a 1/2” or 3/4” spacer up front to offset the droop that’ll come with it.
  14. now has an app

    Member here too. I haven’t really looked into it’s features.
  15. Can’t take grill off with poison spyder crawler bumper

    There’s no way I’ll remove my Genright. It was hell getting the modified-by-me nuts started with my Zeon Platinum. I’ll rip the f’n grill off and cut a new one to get it on first. lol
  16. New Jersey **FREE** 5 MOAB Stock Tires /20K miles. These are BFG Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 tires, size: LT255/75/R17

    That’s awesome! I wish you were closer. My 17 yo could use those on her Willys. Bump for attention.
  17. Apex AutoLYNX quick sway bar disconnect solution

    Same here lol. Last January, after a year of looking for the “best” solution, I was stoked to find these seeing how they worked and that they were an easy bolt on.
  18. What did you screw up or tear up on your Jeep today?

    While I’m not aiming to get them, the ones I’ve gotten…have some memories with them. I still break out the touch up if I see primer though. lol
