  1. What are the thoughts about the MOPAR Sun Bonnet?

    Anybody has the bestop one? opinions?
  2. Is anyone worried about that low hanging oil drain plug on the 392?

    I bet they design the oil pan for the RAM TRX, and they did not change it for the Wrangler.
  3. Service electronic stability control

    had the same issue and more. initially intermittent stability control warning - dealer replaced fuses, and the vacuum pump. A few days later the same stability control warning showed up, later it switched to "service 4wd system". Took it back to the dealer. They claim - based on the error code...
  4. Green interior panel clips

    I guess if lot's of us came in to replace the entire panel - jeep will get the message. I lost like 5 of these clips
  5. New Jersey 35" Yokohama Geolandar M/T G003

    I had two sets of wheels/tires, one with Nittos, one with this Yokohama. I realized that I will not swap every winter, will just keep the Nittos (good in snow). Got tired of storing these - it takes a ton of room in the garage. Sold the wheels already.

  8. Introducing our new Mule Ultra Mid-Rack

    how much does it add to the height of the wrangler?
  9. JLUR vs G63 vs Jimny in off-road challenge [Carwow]

    entertaining video, but the 'results' are bogus. The only AT tire lost against street tires in both the wet-muddy hill climbs? Really?
  10. Had my steering damper replaced today.

    I scheduled a service, they took it in - then they give it back without service and claimed it's on back order. It was a month ago. Still no word from them. (NJ)
  11. New 2020 Land Rover Defender vs Jeep JL Wrangler

    and you would lose that bet. as i said I have more fun to drive the jeep, period. But don't kid yourself - in slippery surfaces on the highway independent suspension with full time 4wd/open diff with electronic aids are far superior to what the wrangler has.
  12. New 2020 Land Rover Defender vs Jeep JL Wrangler

    I have an 2013 LR4 (V8) and a 2018 JLU Rubicon (2.0). I have off road tires on both (31" on the LR4, 35" on the JLU), I off roaded them both. Looks like the new defender is going to be very similar to the LR4 in setup/size/capabilities. Anyhow this is my long term rundown on the LR4 vs JLU: off...
  13. New 2020 Land Rover Defender vs Jeep JL Wrangler

    I think these are pre-production models, so final finish/materials might be different

  15. 2.0 turbo making very loud noise when you step on the accelerator

    I had exactly the same issue when I bought my JLU rubicon 2.0 last year. High pressure gas discharge sound under full throttle. Dealership said a clamp was missing from the turbo pluming. Looks like a common problem.
  16. Brake pedal rattle

    2018 Wrangler Rubicon JLU, 5k miles. I started to notice annoying rattle under the dash when I go over bumps, it's pretty loud. Found the issue: the brake pedal has a play and can bounce off the cylinder when not pressed. Looks like people had the same issue on the JKs.
  17. In praise (or not) of ESS? **NO POLITICS** BSG is to get away with the US emission regulation. It is very telling - that the eruopean market they sell the 2.0T without BSG. I guess in the europen test cycle BSG does not...
  18. In praise (or not) of ESS? **NO POLITICS**

    BTW - anybody remember "FlexFuel" or E85 ethanol? The only reason they sold FlexFuel vehicles to help raise the calculated corporate fuel economy numbers. FlexFuel added a few hundred to the cost of the car, but it allowed the manufacturer to calculate these cars at a discount into the...
  19. Please Explain... Mopar Swing Gate Reinforcement

    Funny, on jeep's website in the build options it's called "Hinge-Gate Reinforcement by Mopar" ...
  20. In praise (or not) of ESS? **NO POLITICS**

    Please google co2 emission per capital by country. US/Canada/Australia are double compared to most European countries or China. And 10X compared to India. Back to ESS. I end up turning it off because my commute is a lot of stop-and-go traffic where it turns the engine off sub-second hundreds...
