  1. When did your battery die?

    Have towing package with 700CCA battery which suddenly died in 19mo at 15k miles in spite of being on a Noco Genius 5 maintainer nearly constantly. Dealer replaced it with 3-year additional warranty and was going to replace the Aux ESS battery but it tested good so could not do under warranty...
  2. Mopar Calibration for 35s (was I ripped off?)

    Sorry if this is a repeat but I noticed someone early on mentioning that 35" tires are not exactly 35" as they roll and they are right. With a Tazer, you can dial in the diameter to enable your vehicle speedometer to match true GPS speed and this will usually be somewhere in the 34.5" range...
  3. Axle upgrade for 2020 Rubicon JLU with 37" tires?

    I was contemplating an axle upgrade for my 2020 Rubicon JLU with 37" tires. Searching for a view on the Dana Spicer 44 Nickel Chromoly vs the RCV Dana 44 substitute didn't reveal any hits so thought I would ask here. Thanks
  4. Are M/T's really Necessary?

    I have about 10k miles on 37x12.5 Nitto Ridge Grapplers and really like them. I originally wanted KM3s but was worried about ice in the winter (also from Colorado) and the Jeep pros I hang out with all pointed toward the Ridge Grapplers. Have run the Ridge Grapplers on miles of ice/snow/slush...
  5. Trip A&B, Avg MPG & Diplay Setup Issues

    After 11k miles with no problem, all the sudden my 2020 JLU mpg gage started resetting when I would turn the car off for a stop and then back on (rather than only when I did the reset). Only the mpg on both screens reset and not the range. Also, the mpg on the trip A and B still behaves...
  6. MPG Guage Question

    After 11k miles, all the sudden the MPG gage on my 2020 JLU has been resetting itself when I turn the car off and then back on rather than holding the setting until I manually reset it. The reset leaves the range number alone but resets the fuel mpg to zero to start all over again. It is the...
  7. Which hard top removal device would you recommend?

    I used the Garage Smart Hard Top Lifter and it works great - see photo. The photo also shows the Garage Smart system configured to lift my Pioneer Platform Rack as well. Both can be lifted or reinstalled in minutes by one person.
  8. 285/ 70- R17 BFG KO2 or Nitto Ridge Grapplers?

    Have had Ridge Grapplers (37x12.5) for nearly 10k miles with over 400 hard CO and UT trail miles with several rated 6 on the Moab scale. They have been great in all conditions so far. While there have been no issues in the snow/ice, it was tough to walk away from the KO2 snow rating.
  9. Calculator: gear ratio, tire size, speed, etc.

    AnnDee. Thanks. When I downloaded the spreadsheet into XLSX per the instructions, it kept the tables but lost the graphs. Do you have a suggestion for capturing a download with the cool graphs?
  10. Tazer Mini JL - Question about what is lost?

    As a happy Tazer JL user, I would like to second the caution an earlier commenter provided about first unmarrying and then removing the Tazer prior to dealer service or letting them know you haven't so they don't try to do a flash update with it in. I have been told that it is possible to...
  11. High clearance exhaust?

    An interesting solution was posted at the bottom of the page on this string (2) Lil' Mrs. Focker's Bright White Build | 2018+ Jeep Wrangler Forums (JL / JLU) - Rubicon, Sahara, Sport, Unlimited - JLwranglerforums.com about this product Savvy Magnaflow Built JL Axle Back Exhaust - Savvy Off...
  12. Sick of tire shine products

    Like several others in this post, I use Chemical Guys Natural Shine as it does a great job of cleaning (after a regular wash) and ends with a natural new tire like shine, not glossy. The attached photo shows a tire after a big trip to Moab following a wash with Adams Shampoo and then two rounds...
  13. Does weight matter?

    Regarding belly pans, it's expensive but the Artec full aluminum pan only adds 10-15 lbs over stock as it eliminates several of the stock steel skid plates. It also provides another 1/2" of ground clearance and is built with flush fasteners to enable a smooth skid over rock ledges etc. I went...
  14. Does weight matter?

    I was worried about weight in my build but with bumpers, rock rails, lift, tires/wheels, etc. nearly 1,000lbs were added and yet with the 4cyl and 8 speed auto there are no issues rock crawling or on highway driving. Feels still pretty much as stock on the road in terms of ride and power with...
  15. What aftermarket battery are you running?

    Does anyone know what the group size is for the stock 700a battery that comes with the Towing Package? Couldn't locate it on the battery. Thanks.
  16. Lil' Mrs. Focker's Bright White Build

    Scott. You asked for photos a while back of the lights at night for the Baja Designs SAE fog lights so I have attached photos of 1) Fog Lights only 2) Low Beams (LED) only 3) High Beams (LED) only 4) HIgh Beams with Fog (Tazer enabled) and 5) 10" Rigid combo spot/flood light bar only (no other...
  17. 2.5 inch lift advice

    I have been running the Teraflex Alpine RT2 2.5" lift with Falcon Fast Adjust Shocks and have been very pleased. I run the shocks on the soft setting most of the time. The highway ride has been as good or better than stock. Interestingly, after putting on a new ARB front bumper and winch...
  18. Need some advice with regearing

    My 2020 Rubicon 4Cly 8sp stock did 19-22mpg. Put a bunch of stuff and 37s on it and now it is 15-16mpg but I still see 7th gear all the time, rarely 8th. The stock vehicle only showed 8th above 60mph and on fairly flat to downhill grades - this stayed the same with extra stuff and 35s but the...
  19. Trail Cam from Gladiator to Wrangler

    I used the Gladiator TrailCam on the Rubicon Trail last Sept and was very impressed. As a result, when I ordered my new Wrangler Rubi in November, I desperately wanted to find a way to get one. In hindsight, I am glad it didn't work out as it is really only a good deal if you are sticking...
