  1. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    the return to center is part solid axel, part steering, part tire choice. The bracket will certainly help. Im not sure what tires you run but the heavier and the more you lean toward mud tires the more the jeep will wonder the road.
  2. Increased Mileage after purchase

    if it was new I would agree 100% but in this case I'd be more worried about the other 31000 miles ;)
  3. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    the adjustable control arms are helpful if youve lifted 2+ inches but running stock theres no need. Im not sure why jeep hasnt recalled the steering boxes but The synergy box, track bar bracket will tighten up the steering play and give you the driving experience your looking for.
  4. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    Heres a potential solution if your dealer isnt going to do anything. ive installed these for a couple people and its a gamechanger. Synergy Front track bar and sector shaft brace. part #8869-01 cost is around $250 and it sucks to spend that on a vehicle that you just purchased but you'll be...

  7. JLUR - Plastic vs Steel Bumpers?

    although I love the steel front bumper, especially as the stubby bumper and it has held up great to some real abuse and winch time. On the other hand the rear bumper is worthless. Broke the license plate bracket off in the first few months of ownership and proceeded to mangle the driver rear...
  8. Increased Mileage after purchase

    The carfax isnt live, it would have been listing the day the dealer traded for it and checked it in. its nothing to stress, just test drive or service loaner miles. We have brand new vehicles on the lot with 500 miles on them. :jk: just enjoy the new jeep, have fun, its your turn to rack up...
  9. gas mileage 65 vs 70

    In my experience there is definitely a sweet spot around 55mph. Took my JLUR on a 4000 miles trip from Missouri to Cali and back. Drove out on route66 (I-40) and back on I-70 I messed around a lot with different speeds and different fuels. Places like AZ and UT where you get run down for not...
  10. Gas mileage so far

    Also consider after changing stock tires did you calibrate the speedometer? My 3.6L JLUR is on a 2.5in lift with 35 Mickeys with the 4:10 rear dana 44 and it says 17mpg but it also says Im going 65mph when Im actually going 70. All of these things make a difference. I estimate my speedo being...

  14. The Jeep Wave.....or not (JL bias)

    Like many jeep owners, my jeep is not my only vehicle. Im sure many many of you have a second or even third car or motorcycle in your driveway/garage. Just be nice and wave back to people that wave at you! It could be the same guy or gal you pass every weekend in their wrangler and they're...

  17. Drivers with automatic trans and 3.6L V6, any regrets on not getting the 2.0L Turbo?

    The 3.6L Pentastar V6 is Chryslers flagship motor. Incase you didn't know a Pentastar is also the Chrysler logo. Its been in production since 2011 and has proven strength and reliability. Any new body style or new motor will have bugs to work out. What worries me about the 2.0 T is low end...
  18. 8.4" Touchscreen wear!!!! WTF?

    Id suggest a faulty roof top leak ;) water damaged it in the next rain storm. The whole unit will short out and be replaced in its entirety including the screen. Already seen it happen a few times. The only other thing I can think of would be where your car was manufactured. You can check...
