  1. Dirt Bike Hitch Carrier on 2dr JL?

    I’m Inclined to think the same. it’s a shame, as I was looking forward to picking up a YZ250 again after 40 years since my last one!
  2. Dirt Bike Hitch Carrier on 2dr JL?

    Yes, class iii receivers are available for the JL with higher tongue ratings than 200 lbs, but that does not appear to be the limiting factor. It is the 200 lbs max tongue weight you can carry with a 2dr JL, as stated in the owners manual. Without knowing what drives the 200lb limit, I’m not...
  3. Dirt Bike Hitch Carrier on 2dr JL?

    Well, the JL owners manual states 200 lbs is the max tongue weight you can carry with a 2dr (350 lbs with a 4dr). I’m not sure what that maximum is a factor of, I.e., whether it is the hitch max, the axles, the shorter wheelbase of the 2dr, etc., but I’m not anxious to test it with 300 lbs on...
  4. Dirt Bike Hitch Carrier on 2dr JL?

    After some further reading, I don’t think there is any safe way to carry more than 200 lbs with a hitch carrier on a 2dr JL. I guess my dirt bike years are behind me.
  5. Dirt Bike Hitch Carrier on 2dr JL?

    I’m looking for an experience-based response re: a dirt bike hitch carrier for my 2020 2dr JL. (I.e., NOT looking for opinions, but response from someone who has actually done this!) I’d like to put a hitch carrier on my JL to carry a YZ250 dirt bike. The bike with fuel weighs about 250 lbs...
  6. I'm thinking of trading to a Bronco

    Ah, yes...the Mopar 68322798AA control arms are longer than the OEM factory control arms (since they are typically used with lift kits), so by installing them on an unlifted JL the effect will be to increase positive caster, i.e., the longer length will push the wheels farther forward, and that...
  7. I'm thinking of trading to a Bronco

    When you say, "swap your lower control arms," what exactly do you mean? (I.e., do you mean swap left to right?) --The part number you provided is the Mopar OEM lower control arm, so I'm assuminmg you don't mean buy this part and replace your OEM control arm with it. Please clarify, as it seems...
  8. I'm thinking of trading to a Bronco

    Looking at the interior pics of the new Bronco, it looks too much like an SUV to me. The dash and center console just aren't very inspiring. Too bad, as Ford had a chance to make a real statement with the new Bronco, but apparently opted for production efficiency.
  9. Rubbish MPG

    I average 16mpg around town with a 3.6L V6. But then I have a lead foot, and 3 recent photo camera tickets to prove it. :(
  10. any new wireless CarPlay dongles out there?

    I've had off/on problems with the CarPlay2Air unit I purchased last summer, and found this unit today on Amazon for half the price: wireless CarPlay unit I just ordered it, and it will arrive at the end of next week, so I'll post an update with how it works. My guess is all of these units use...
  11. iPhone CarPlay AUDIO Not Working on Incoming Calls

    I'm wondering if anyone else has been experiencing this: Lately, whenever I get an incoming call and accept it in my radio's CarPlay interface, the call AUDIO does not connect through the radio. In order to hear the caller, and for them to hear me, I have to manually pick up my phone and put it...
  12. Remote Start Unreliable

    Does anyone else have issues with their remote start turning the Jeep off within a minute after starting? About 50% of the time I use remote start, the engine will properly start, but then will shut off after about 30 seconds to a minute. Completely defeats the purpose of remote start! (And...
  13. Music Skips When Connected via USB?

    I haven’t used a USB cable for a while now, ever since installing a CarPlay wireless unit last summer, so I don’t know whether there has been any resolution. I can say that with the wireless unit, the skipping does not occur. (Which is odd, because the wireless unit plugs into the USB port!)...
  14. Spare Tire Delete Kits - Why so Badly Designed?

    I had a Kentrol spare tire delete kit on my 2010 JK and liked it, so I thought I’d look in to getting rid of the spare on my new JL. But after looking at the various kits available, I am left fairly underwhelmed. Either the design of the spare tire bracket location on the JL tailgate makes...
  15. An Invisible Design Improvement in JL versus JK (Hint: in the Windshield)

    Unfortunately, a large rock yesterday resulted in a new windshield installation today in my 6-month old JL. :( As a result, I became aware of a very nice design improvement in the windshield glass itself, versus my old JK: the upper corners of the glass have guide pins attached, making...
  16. Jeep JL Car Play Project.

    I came across this post today. Not sure whether you've seen it, but I think it may address the question of why we cannot plug in the iPhone via USB with the wireless CarPlay adapter engaged?
  17. Alpine PSS-23WRA Sound System Upgrade - Review and Suggestions

    Hi DeeGee. I do not know for certain about the screw holes, or screws, since I purchased mine as a kit and the amp came mounted to the bracket, but I would assume that since the bracket is sold for the purpose of mounting the amp and sub it will come with the screws, and the amp and sub will...
  18. Front Trail Camera

    This is the camera kit I bought: camera kit I mounted the monitor on top of the dash, in the cell phone tray on top of the radio: And this is the picture quality: It's not the best quality, but I wanted it for a tight end-to-end parking space, so I could get within an inch of the car in...
  19. Front Trail Camera

    How do you know you prefer your Jeep without seeing or driving the new Bronco? ;) From what it looks like, Ford may have hit a home run. I'm a long-time Jeep fan, having owned 4 over the last 33 years, but I'm very curious to see and drive this Bronco. I could be convinced to give up my JL and...
  20. Front Trail Camera

    Maybe just wait for a 2021 Bronco. I hear they’ll have an option for cameras at every wheel. ;)
