  2. LED's not hot enough to melt snow while driving!!??

    Troybilt, I started the jeep at around 7pm or 8pm (after sunset) , headlights auto-on, drove about 10 miniutes and took a few the thermal images. Thermal camera is +/- 2F. Radiator was only 138F indicating I didn’t drive it for too much time. My LEDs are too hot based on the experiences in...
  3. LED's not hot enough to melt snow while driving!!??

    My LEDs are actually too hot. Maybe I should start a new thread. BTW, 47F outside.
  4. JL Death Wobble Tips

    I have always been under the impression that lifting a jeep without extending the lower control arms reduces rake/caster angle. Reduced caster angle makes a rolling wheel less stable. Less stable wheels resonate and wear out steering components, ball joints, etc.. It doesn’t take much reduced...
  5. Snow driving Tips

    Off road in snow? It’s more about snow density and depth than your equipment. Keep your tires inflated. Snow density increases as it sits and compresses. Nothing but a winch or tow rope will help you in dense snow deeper than your axles. Chains and lockers are useless if you are high centered...
  6. First week, first mods?

    If JLU, add protective 3M film on rear hinges.
  7. Rubi is GREAT in the snow

    Agreed! Rock-Trac with open diffs does very well on and in the snow. I am impressed thus far. Cheers!

    For you, it’s definitely just a car. Sell it!
  9. Jeep should have put the aux switches...

    car: a road vehicle, typically with four wheels, powered by an internal combustion engine and able to carry a small number of people. I’ve owned Jeeps all my life. I’m rebuilding a CJ right now in my garage. I grew up off-roading. Sounds like you’ve got buyers remorse. Sell it, it’s just a car.

    LED Headlights worked fine. No ice or snow build up. Thank you Jeep engineers!

    Snow can accumulate on LED traffic lights in certain conditions too!
  13. Adams Automotive and the missing "glob of solder" (rear defroster)

    Mine are sanded and I inspected this vehicle right off the auto transport. In other words, it isn’t a dealership PDI fix.
  14. A little rant about Jeep reviews

    I currently have a 2018 JKUS and 2018 JLUR, both with the 3-piece Freedom hardtop. The 2018 JK wind noise is slightly louder than the JL. The 2018 JK seems about same amount of wind noise as my last JK. In my opinion, the JL hardtop seals tighter and is a better oversall designed hardtop...
  15. Best plan for 35" tires with minimal loss of daily driver usability?

    The load index and max load both decreased when I swapped tires, so revised OE psi should increase as vehicle weight is unchanged. I don’t have an actual BFG load index inflation table, but there is a formula for calculating the revised OE tire pressure. Subtract the new tire max load from...
  16. Best plan for 35" tires with minimal loss of daily driver usability?

    Correct, my rear 315/70R17 BFG KO2 at 39 psi just measured 34 1/16” with a level and laser. The front was 34”.
  17. Best plan for 35" tires with minimal loss of daily driver usability?

    3.6L and no rubbing with the sway disconnected. I was out this afternoon testing the KO2s in bentonite gumbo mud; it’s as slick axle grease, really sticky and heavy. The mud dries like concrete. I slid down this hill half sideways in the rut with full brake, but crawled back up it with locked...
  18. Best plan for 35" tires with minimal loss of daily driver usability?

    I have daily driver JLUR with almost 35” 315/70R17 BFG KO2 (C load range @ 39 psi ) on stock wheels without a lift. No rubbing off-road. The spare fits perfectly on the stock tire carrier with stock steel bumper. No problems with steering/handling or gearing (8 speed auto) at highway speeds...
