  1. Pictures of camping with your Jeep

    I grew up vacationing in PCB - Ft Pickens and the NAS we’re always stops that we made. I’m taking the girls to Destin here in the next week or so, when they get a little older, we’re definitely hitting the P’cola seen - thanks for sharing!
  2. Anybody else order a rubicon without options?

    I bought my Rubicon last year and had to really hunt it down as I wanted a manual transmission and wanted the Jeep to be black in color. As luck would have it a dealer had one on their lot about an hour away so I drove down test drive it and bought it on the spot. The only options that I have...
  3. The Moose is Loose!

    Great looking rig man - well done!!
  4. Gas mileage

    I’ve been averaging 16-17 mpg on my JLUR (3.6L, manual transmission) - I probably don’t drive the greatest from a fuel economy point of view (or any point of view for that matter), but with the Wrangler’s brick-ish aerodynamics, I never expected 25mpg or more. I daily mine and mostly drive...
  5. Windshield Defroster Fix

    I bought these as well - it took all of 2 minutes to put them in, but I will say I’ve seen a few pop up from “flush” when parked in the sun. Maybe this will fix itself over time but defroster seems to be much more effective.
  6. Rubbish MPG

    I think I averaged 16.4 miles/gallon at my last fuel up (3.6L with manual transmission) - I didn’t have great hopes for a rig that has the aerodynamic properties of a stream lined safe, but with oil north of $60/barrel, it’s not going to be as cheap to run as it once was...
  7. JLU Wipers Ice up fast

    I had these on my Subaru Forester as well - was a great feature for sure, I wish the cold weather package for Jeep would include them...
  8. JLU Wipers Ice up fast

    Great question - I was the last one to leave work last night and the ice was coming down pretty heavily. The JLUR had no issues on the two lane road home, but my wipers could barely keep up and they weren’t doing much to keep the ice off. I’d love to hear about other options as well - glad to...
  9. What did you name your Jeep JL?

    I usually let the kids name my vehicles but the few that have been thrown around so far are - Hildy (as in Brunhild) no real direct connection other than a really tough lady... Storm or Al (of Marvel fame, X-men and Deadpool accordingly and no, I don’t let my kids watch Deadpool - lol)
  10. how can I flip the rearview mirror?

    Just did this in about 20 seconds while waiting for my Walmart pickup - pushed up ever so slightly on the roof trim and rotated the mirror on around (180 degrees). The flip-down “dimmer” still works great, just at the top now, not the bottom... Now, hopefully it doesn’t come rocketing off at...
  11. What did you do WITH your Jeep today.

    Took the ladies out to a nice trail this morning - it was about 30 degrees today but no wind, so even though we hiked for almost an hour, it was pretty comfortable - supposed to be ice/snow Wednesday and Thursday so I thought I’d run them outside as much as I could this week ;)
  12. One year

    Lol - just saw this and had to look shewees up...
  13. One year

    This is awesome - thanks for the input and sorry for the slow reply (crazy last few days with the kids/holidays)! I appreciate your suggestions and will look in to the extra storage idea behind the passenger grab handle as well as a few cellphone mount options. I don’t have gps and usually...
  14. How much money have you wasted so far?

    I’ve had a lot of fun driving my JLUR but have been trying to stay disciplined around what I spend in upgrades until I’ve had it awhile and really figure what I need. That said I don’t feel like I’ve wasted any money on it (which of course could change over time), but I’ve probably spent the...
  15. One year

    Congratulations- that’s a lot of windshield time and it sounds like you used it very well!! Any interior mod recommendations that you have for keeping things comfy with that much time behind the wheel? I’d like to put some distance on my JLUR and the interior is pretty Spartan (only option was...
  16. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    I just had my recall inspection performed on Friday - after leaving my Jeep there for almost 7 hours, I think I’m all set but couldn’t tell from the 5 page receipt what they did exactly... It looked like .5 hours labor/checked for air in the system in one section it said no sleeve added - and...
  17. 2021 Jeep Manual Transmission

    ‘20 JLUR owner here with the 6 speed - no regrets - it’s a blast to drive! I went back and forth on what transmission to get - I hear that the auto is amazing, but I just know that had I bought the 8speed, I would’ve wanted a manual in the long run.
  18. Jeeps are magnets in parking lots

    It’s so true - I always subconsciously park next to other jeeps and I sometimes have to stop myself from waving at other Jeep’s even when I’m driving my wife’s SUV (non-Jeep)
  19. Dookey's DD

    Great build - thanks for sharing the evolution and the adventures!!
  20. Missouri WTB Mopar or hothead headliner for JLUR

    Very cool - I’m looking in to it now!!
