  1. Recommendation for a place around Pasadena to fill CO2 tanks

    I am considering buying a 15 lb Power Tank, but want to make sure there are some good places around Pasadena that can fill up the tank before I buy it. Does anyone have any recommendations? I have found some in South Orange Country, but that seems a bit far to drive.
  2. Gear whine on coasting after regear to 4.88s. Shop is claiming its a "driver comfort issue" and that it's normal. This can't be normal.

    I was on the fence between 4.88 and 5.13 which apparently is a common dilemma on this forum, but I decided to go with 5.13. I am scheduled to get them done at the end of this month. What did you get and are you happy with how it feels?
  3. Gear whine on coasting after regear to 4.88s. Shop is claiming its a "driver comfort issue" and that it's normal. This can't be normal.

    @jessedacri, I went to Offroad Customz today and spoke with Vee. I really liked the shop and the service I got today so I went ahead and booked an appointment to do my gears. Thanks for your input!! By the way, he remembers you :)
  4. Gear whine on coasting after regear to 4.88s. Shop is claiming its a "driver comfort issue" and that it's normal. This can't be normal.

    Did you resolve your regearing issue and if you did, would you recommend the shop you took it to? I also live in Los Angles and I am looking at a few places for my regearing. Currently, I am looking at these 6 shops: Offroad Customz (Glendale) Crunch Offroad (Temple City) Saint Offroad...
  5. Recommendation on a shop for re-gearing in Socal?

  6. Right Drift after Steering TSB

    @californiajeeping, do live in Los Angeles? If yes, could you provide the name of the dealer that you would recommend to do the steering gear upgrade?
  7. Installed Rhino Rack Backbone Pioneer platform -- Wobbly Rubicon.

    I actually have a stock Rubicon JL Unlimited with the backbone + pioneer platform and I really don't notice a difference in handling. In fact, just a few days ago I had to remove the pioneer rack since I realized I had a slight leak that I had to fix. After I took it off, I went for a drive and...
  8. Method 701 17x8.5 vs 17x9. Which one?

    So I am totally clueless on wheel selection so hoping to get some advice. I currently own a Jeep JL Rubicon Unlimited and I am planning on adding a Metalcloak 3.5 Gamechanger Kit, Nitto Trail Grappler or BFG KM3 37x12.5x17 tires, and 701 Method 17" wheels. My problem is that 701 wheels come...
  9. 3 Offroad shops have stirred me away from Metalcloak to Teraflex suspension due to much better warranty service

    I appreciate everybody's response! Although I am sure there will always be some unhappy customers, overall the message is clear in this forum and that is Metalcloak has great products and they stand behind their product when it comes to customer service. Although I do believe Teraflex must...
  10. 3 Offroad shops have stirred me away from Metalcloak to Teraflex suspension due to much better warranty service

    I just bought a brand new 2020 Jeep Rubicon Unlimited and looking at adding 37" tires and a 3.5" suspension system. My initial inclination was towards the Metalcloak gamechanger 3.5 kit and so I reached out to 3 offroad shops here in Southern California, 2 of them authorized Metalcloak...
  11. Legitimate question to diesel owners....

    So no one here who owns a diesel and goes offroading (water crossings, slow driving for several hours, etc) disagrees/agrees with the response from the diesel tuner I posted?
  12. Legitimate question to diesel owners....

    So I test drove yesterday the manual, the 3.6 automatic, and the diesel all back to back. I would say the diesel was my favorite, but not because of the torque, but because it felt more like a truck. It felt heavier, more sure-footed, and I enjoyed the sound of the engine. I would say that it...
  13. Cwu's Punk'n Diesel Build

    @Biconia, how was the test drive handled during this COVID-19 period? I 've been meaning to test drive the diesel but wasn't sure how test drives are being conducted. Did you compare the normal v6 vs the diesel and if so what was your opinion? Also what dealer did you go to? I am only asking...
  14. Driving habits of current diesel Wrangler owners and how it affects regen cycles

    So would any of you say that your driving habits had to change due to the diesel? Based on the answers so far, no, but I am only asking because I was reading on the ram 1500 eco diesel forums (2nd gen) where people were driving maybe a few extra blocks when they detected a regen happening or...
  15. Driving habits of current diesel Wrangler owners and how it affects regen cycles

    It is my understanding that one should not consider getting an eco diesel if one won't be doing consistent long-distance driving. The reasoning is that to allow the regen cycles to complete one must allow the engine to run continuously for some time. I'd like to know from current diesel owners...

  19. Major steering issue problem with JL Wrangler. Please watch

    Could the locking that people are experiencing in colder weather be caused by the steering damper getting locked up and not the steering box? Anyone else getting the locking with an aftermarket damper or with no damper at all?
  20. Is the steering problem solved after all recommended fixes applied?

    I understand the comment that a solid axle vehicle drives differently from other vehicles. I actually did rent a JL for a week and really enjoyed it. I drove it in the mountains and on the highway and although I agree the steering was looser compared to many cars I've driven, I still felt safe...
