  1. Good reading on JL construction: Frame and Sport Roll Bars among significant high-strength steel content

    They said no aluminum to steel joints. Hmmm, I'm not going to argue semantics about what constitutes a joint, but to me the steel screws attaching the doors to the hinges are a steel to aluminum joining method ...............and very problematic.
  2. 4xe Sahara Falken tires, SL or D load rating?

    SL if your looking for a complaint ride. C will be slightly stiffer sidewall, barely.
  3. Owners show off your new 4xe!

    Dog is like, " well, we going for a ride or what??!!"
  4. Does Rust spread like cancer?

    or you could use electrolysis. Need a huge tank though.
  5. Texas 2020 Gladiator JT Rubicon Wheels (no tires)

    Wow, $200 for the set and no takers! If you were closer I’d be picking these up. Bump
  6. Welp...Nacho and Hella are done

    I hope the paint options Ford offers on the Bronco forces Jeep to start offering more color options. This is getting super annoying trying to find a interesting color. So over black, silver, and white.
  7. Test drove the Gladiator today...disappointed.

    Yeah, I get it. I don’t expect a vehicle to accelerate the same as when unloaded. My comments are around the longevity of the drivetrain and the comfort level when driving over 5k pounds. While the Gladiator has the advantage of a long wheelbase , I wouldn’t expect the driveline to last long...
  8. Test drove the Gladiator today...disappointed.

    Exactly. I had 2010 Explorer with the V8 that I used to tow my 28’ sailboat. All in that rig weighed around 5500 lbs. and IMO the v8 was marginal for that weight. The breaks were marginal too. I don’t know how they claim I cloud tow up to 7200 lbs with that truck <rollseyes>. I would never tow...
  9. How long before I can order a 392 in Chief Blue?? Or Hella Yella?

    oooo, pics of the LS swap? How was driveability after the conversion? Any pitfalls?
  10. Rubicon 4xe order ! its all over the place. Just search on it. It also is bullshit, hence my rollseyes moniker. Happy for you. Enjoy. I’m hoping, waiting for the 4xe version of the Gladiator or perhaps even the Grand Cherokee.
  11. Rubicon 4xe order !

    Impossible!!! Stellantis has been proclaiming for weeks that the 4xe is sold out . <rollseyes>
  12. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    it’s corrosion from dissimilar metals being in contact with each other. Aluminum doors with steel screws and hinges. You need to isolate the two metals in order to avoid this galvanic corrosion and apparently Jeep doesn’t understand how to do this yet.
  13. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    I wonder if it would help if you installed the door hinge screws with silicone on the threads. Basically something to separate the two different materials to help avoid the galvanic reaction. When I had to install a VHF antennae onto my carbon fiber sailboat mast the manufacturer recommended...
  14. New JL is causing right shoulder back pain help!

    First off, thanks for your service. secondly, I despise wallets in the back pocket for driving. Can’t do it. I’ve been thinking some mens clothes manufacturers (Levi’s, etc) would really have a hit if they’d market some jeans with a wallet pocket that’s on the side of your thigh. I can’t stand...
  15. Chip Shortage Impacting Production Real or Hype?

    Wow, that sucks . I keep hearing about our Canadian brothers and sisters and how long they have to wait. Can't believe it takes that long given their close proximity to the plant.
  16. UPDATE % under invoice price with @dealersider

    ^^ yes, that’s exactly what a courtesy delivery is. Problem is, it’s hard sometimes to find a dealer willing to do one. The corvette guys do these a lot.
  17. UPDATE % under invoice with @dealersider

    Thanks. Not quite ready to go. Still gotta test drive and figure out which way I want to go. Thanks for the info . I will keep you in mind.
  18. UPDATE % under invoice with @dealersider

    Are you offering the same 7% on Ram 1500 ? Torn between the Gladiator and Ram…..
  19. Just got home from Bronco event...

    $69k, :LOL::CWL::CWL::blush:. What A deal!!!!! For a Ford…….joke. Thta video really shows off how bad those flares are! God, what an afterthought. The aftermarket should come up with something to replace those stock units. Given the width of these and then the 4” wide fender extensions you are...
  20. Car & Driver track tests 3.6L Wrangler vs. 2.7L and 2.3L Broncos

    ^^ the hp numbers are ok (although I’ll always take more), it’s the torque number that could use improvement IMO.
