  1. To Advanced Safety Group or No?

    Way over analyzing. On day two you won’t even notice it. I’ve forgotten it was ever a concern.

    First Gladiator up close n personal
  3. Midland mxt275 GMRS radio questions

    [Update: Sad to report that I don't think my simple antenna bracket will work with the factory carrier after all.]
  4. New Teraflex adjustable spare tire mounting kit

    I wrote up a description of my antenna mount and posted on May 19 in the GMRS thread. Sadly I didn't think to take photos of the actual bracket work in progress, but the Teraflex lends itself very nicely to my bracket. One of the reasons for changing out the factory mount was to try and reduce...
  5. New Teraflex adjustable spare tire mounting kit

    I finally got a chance to take a look at the differences in the camera mount between factory and new. At first I thought it was significantly longer, but by my 'calibrated eyeball', I'm not so sure. Attached is a photo of the rear view with new tire carrier and KMC FMJ137 wheels: Wheel Size...
  6. Jeeps parking next to Jeeps... post yours!

    Mine is the JLUR, the JLR belongs to Kevin, who came to take away my old factory Rubicon wheels, to add to his collection...
  7. Opinions on whether to buy a used 2018 or new 2019 Wrangler?

    I’d start with a list of required features. For me, I’ll never own another vehicle without adaptive cruise control. So 18’s are out. If your feature list can be satisfied with those offered on the ‘18’s. And if you really plan to update in a couple years anyway, then a sweet deal on an ‘18 seems...
  8. Washington Spidertrax Wheel Spacers

    Cool. I’m out of town thru the holiday weekend. I’ll touch base next week. Thanks Terry
  9. Washington Spidertrax Wheel Spacers

    Set of used spidertrax JL specific spacers, used less than 2000 miles before I swapped wheels. Retail $260 for 4. Yours for $125 shipped to lower 48 US. $100 if picked up near Renton, WA. From their website Bigger tires need clearance and adding that suspension lift is only half the...
  10. Custom wireless phone mount

    I took a similar path using the ProClip for JL, with the integrated lightning jack. I routed the cable behind the radio trim for a nearly invisible wiring. While I’m not sure I’m in love with CarPlay (I have on both my JL and my Goldwing), it sure does make the connection effortless.
  11. Midland mxt275 GMRS radio questions

    I just finished an antenna install on my JL. I have the new Teraflex spare tire carrier, but the concept should also work with the factory carrier. I wanted something that was centerline mounted, and didn’t interfere with the CB antenna on the factory reinforced tire carrier. I took some 1/8”...
  12. Terrific Aftermarket Fob I came across

    With a little inspiration I took my fob apart today and swapped out the black buttons for red ones, and filled in the lettering for a more professional look. I used several coats of model paint and let it dry completely. Then I used wet 600 grit sand paper, followed by 2000 grit to sand off the...
  13. Terrific Aftermarket Fob I came across

    Would you have any words of wisdom to share with us for how you accomplished the in-fill painting of the words? I’m planning on doing exactly what you did with the red panic button and black ‘other’ buttons. What did you used for paint and brushes for the white in-fill? Thanks
  14. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    I installed the new Teraflex adjustable spare tire carrier. After swapping my stock wheels for the KMC XD 137FMJs a couple weeks ago, I didn’t like the way the tailgate felt when closing it. It just wasn’t closing as solidly as it did with the stock wheels. I have been running BFG 35x12.50 KM3s...
  15. Rubicon Wheels - Renton

    I am keeping the tires which are BFG KM3 (35 x 12.50 -17). It’s only the wheels that are for sale. Thanks
  16. Rubicon Wheels - Renton

    Nearly new (~3000 miles) optional Rubicon wheels in like new condition. No scratches, dings. etc. Have valve stems but you'll need to swap over your TPMS sensors. These are not the standard Rubi wheels, but rather the upgrade version. Full set of 5. Asking $450
  17. Black is played out...Show off your non-black wheels!

    Yep. Black didn't really work all that well with the blue, and the red accent look great with the Jeeps red accents.
  18. New Teraflex adjustable spare tire mounting kit

    Sweet - thank you. I just ordered one. I put new wheels on last Friday, and I can tell the new tire/wheel combo puts a bit more stress on the tailgate due to the different offset moving the weight of the tire/wheel a bit farther from the tailgate. Also, I’m hoping the reclaim some viewing angle...
