  1. Diesel Fuel Additives

    Find the "big mouth'" adapter that's in the Jeep (under the rear seat for a JT if I remember correctly), and use that. It's made to be used when the big nozzle at the truck stop won't fit your smaller filler hole. JT18
  2. Question on Snow Tire Size

    Narrower tires in the winter for on-road driving will dig to the bottom and find pavement. Wider tires will float on top, which may be good for off-roading but won't be that good for on-road driving. JP18
  3. .

    Come on you noobs :) . A seatbelt's edge works great. JP18
  4. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    For the same reason that the brake system has two separate sub-systems for front & rear... JP18
  5. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    Because some engineer out there decded that they could save a few bucks that way. Terrible design. JP18
  6. Sway bar disconnect

    It's a set of gears that mesh and unmesh (when disconnected). Sometimes you get "gear clash", sometimes you don't. Very normal. Just drive the Jeep a few feet and it will perform the lock or unlock as you change the mode. JP18
  7. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    Mine in my 2018 JLUR is so light, that after returning from a trip to the UK in Feb where I had a stick rental car, when I returned home, I thought my clutch was busted again! JP18
  8. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    The clutch would go to the floor and not come back up. The engagement travel was about 1/2". Right now it's "fixed" (sort'a) but the travel is only about 1 to 1-1/2". JP18
  9. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    My clutch has been worked on 3 times, it's still very soft and light, like putting a knife thru butter at a picnic in July in South Carolina! :) JP18
  10. Trans and transfer case question

    There's normally a fairly large donut shaped magnet in the transmission pan, this is to prevent any metal shavings from floating about in the transmission. JP18
  11. Impact Driver vs Impact Wrench

    Yes it's possible. Especially on smaller fasteners. M18 1/2" can reach up to 1,000 ft-lbs fastening and 1,400 ft-lb looseing. JP18
  12. Impact Driver vs Impact Wrench

    Milwaukee M18 1/2" for the heavy stuff, M18 3/8" for the lighter stuff. And don't get trigger happy. JP18
  13. Diesel Fuel Additives

    Sensor may have been bad to start with, but I'm not gonna risk it. The GC is running very well without it. JP18
  14. Diesel Fuel Additives

    I used Diesel Kleen in my 3.0L ED Grand Cherokee. Promptly thereafter (2,000 miles?), I had a Service Engine Soon light that came on, a sensor in the exhaust system was toast. I'm not saying the two are related, but I won't use it again, that's for certain.
  15. Don't remove your front sway bar with an impact

    Always a good idea to use tighten+loosen back and forth when using an impact, especially if you see any loc-tite on the bolt. JP
  16. Unable to order a manual transmission

    Good catch - I was thinking about my EcoDiesel GC and how is also has the ZF sourced tranny. JP
  17. Fifth Gear says Wrangler sucks

    I'm with you here. However, a good reviewer should be able to see that each vehicle is built to do a number of things, and judge/review them on how well they do those said things. You'd never put a Wrangler on a race track, for instance. I would never expect a F350 dually to corner like a...
  18. Unable to order a manual transmission

    I'd reconsider getting the manual. I've had nothing but problems with mine. The clutch has been replaced 3 times and it's still very spongy. The ZF 8-speed auto is practically bulletproof - they even use a (modified) version in the Dodge Hellcat. JP18
  19. Fifth Gear says Wrangler sucks

    Just commenting on the vehicle without understanding it is pretty dumb. It's like if you bought a Lambo or a Ferrari and you complained about the trunk space :) JP18
