  1. Rowher Flat Trail - First Time

    Rowher is well within what a Range Rover can do. You can start from the main entrance off Sierra Hwy. There is a practice area near staging area 1 to get familiar with things. Then there are all sorts of different levels within 10 minutes of that. Some of those routes on the map are pretty much...
  2. Rolling coal

    You might be right about “arrest” but not even a citation at the scene? My former city in WA state would almost automatically issue a citation at the scene if obvious. Rear end someone? You get a “following too closely” ticket. Crash in a turn lane? “Failure to yield”. Go off the road in a...
  3. Rolling coal

    Absolutely money and race are playing a big part here. That truck is a recent model Ford Super Duty. That’s not your average “let the 16 year old take it” truck. The kid had a Houston criminal defense lawyer issuing statements for him within days. That means money for retainers and so on. Maybe...
  4. Rolling coal

    I am a road cyclist, and I've not been coal rolled because that's not so popular on the West Coast suburban areas where I ride. But riding outside the cities? Over the last 20 years: Hit with full unopened soda can Hit with milkshake Intentionally ran into the (usually non-existent or debris...
  5. Show your RACK

    1UP makes the best bike rack around if you ask me. Tray style racks are so much easier to use than hanging style. I had a five bike model 15+ years ago. Rock solid even with all that weight. I sold it about five years ago.
  6. Jump Ship or What?

    That’s the wrong mental model for a lease. Like calling a car an “investment” it’s just “not”. A lease is a rental. You’re paying for the use of the car, with cost calculated on expected residual value at lease end (depreciation in other words) plus profit (the “interest”). Your payment is best...
  7. Jump Ship or What?

    This and several other comments you’ve made say to me that you don’t really understand the significant differences between a lease and a purchase. All of your payment is going into paying your lease, not a cent is going into the vehicle itself. Because you’re renting it not buying it. Your...
  8. Jump Ship or What?

    That’s my thinking too. Getting out of a lease is not usually easy. You agreed to 48 months of renting that Jeep with a certain mileage limit etc. You have to fulfill that agreement or you are subject to whatever early termination clause you agree to. And those are usually quite harsh from a...
  9. Took delivery of new Wrangler

    My Rubicon with stock 33s wandered badly on the first drive home, especially on the freeway. Yes, they were at 43 pounds. At 39 pounds (the recommendation, I think) it still wandered a bit. At 37 pounds, no wander. All measured cold, by using the TPM. I've also become more used to how it...
  10. Rowher run saturday or Sunday morning

    We did! Thanks again for being our guide Sunday, and for encouraging me for things like that hill and some of the steep hills. Days like that are *exactly* what I hoped for when I bought the Jeep.
  11. Rowher run saturday or Sunday morning

    @entropy, my daughter's boyfriend Gage, and I had a great time Sunday morning at Rowher. We drove the main road from the first staging area all the way to Bouquet Reservior. With their encouragement and entropy's spotting, I took on my first big climb. A big confidence booster! I also...
  12. Rowher run saturday or Sunday morning

    I'd love to Sunday morning. I've been there twice with the Jeep I bought earlier in the year (first Jeep). My daughter and her boyfriend are visiting this weekend and flying in Saturday, so a Sunday morning trip works great for me. Note I am a beginner at this, so if you're going to do "black...
  13. First time at Rowher Flats OHV today

    Yes! Hi Jon! We had a great time and tried a few steeper hills than the first time. We towed a guy’s truck out of a ditch. He really had no business on that trail with his 2 wheel drive full size pickup. He was turning around before a steep hill and without a limited slip differential it...
  14. Any mid year changes to 2021 models?

    My built in Feb 2021 JLUR has that.
  15. What is the ONE Jeep Accessory every Jeep owner needs?

    I think so. I like the look better and I don’t want to interfere with the door seals. Be careful installing them to align them correctly the first time. The glue strips are very strong and instant. If you screw it up as I did then it’s fixable but best avoided.
  16. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    Thank you for the complements! That's the Venator bumper from Rugged Ridge, with the overrider bar. Venator Front Bumper | Rugged Ridge I've used the front camera when parking when it looked like a tight squeeze up front. I also tried it a few times in my limited time offroad, just for fun...
  17. Simple OBD2 Code Reader

    Really? My regular 3 year old OBDLink MX device and app “just worked” for me on my 2021 JLUR with the 3.6 V6. I needed to reset the check engine light after loosening a ground wire flipped it on. Nothing special with regard to cables or apps.
  18. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    When I installed my bumper, my ratcheting box wrenches were absolutely invaluable. I only had a short arc of movement but that was enough.
  19. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    Got the Mopar sill guards installed. Easy enough but I mispositioned one and man, the 3M adhesive instantly grips. It took some finagling with a trim removal tool to get it loose without messing up the tape too much but I got that one fixed and it’s fine. Next I installed the Outback tailgate...
  20. Rigid LED’s show them if you got them!!

    Sadly, not yet. I installed them Sunday afternoon, haven't had the chance yet. But I will post when I get them.
