  1. California WTB mopar steel skid with mounts

    Yep. Ditto. I have the rivnuts. Need the bracket as well.
  2. Let's See Some JLU Gutter Mounted Crossbars

    I have Thule adjustable cross bars. Be aware that that type of cross bar may not fit toward the rear as the rear roof section is narrower than front section over the freedom panels. I am wary of mounting cross bars over the freedom panels.
  3. 3.6L ESS Aux Battery Bypass

    Greatly appreciate all the work that went into this thread. Built the jumper wire. Bought the Genius battery boost and printed all of the info. It now lives in the Jeep. KS
  4. How many of you have had a flawless Jeep?

    My JLU Sport ,3.6 with 8 seed limited slip, tow package,14000 miles, off road in Mojave, Moab ( Chicken Corners ). It’s been perfect.
  5. In praise (or not) of ESS? **NO POLITICS**

    Well, of the points you listed, I can agree with points 3 and 5. Though point three isn't an issue for me. As to the other points. You didn't site any sources or provable facts as a basis for your opinion. What I don't like about ESS is the added engineering complication it brings to the...
  6. UNcracked windshield club

    Had a small rock hit the windshield pretty hard yesterday. No crack. Not even a mark. The rock hit the lower middle just at the height of the windshield wipers. Weather was clear and dry. Temperature was 45 degrees. My speed 50 mph. JLU Sport. Built late August 2018. Over 7,000 miles...
  7. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    Installed Inspired Engineering Revolver A Pillar Amber Lights. I wanted to match the round headlights of the Jeep. Threaded the wire behind the firewall. The AUX Switches on the JLU are a fantastic inclusion with the tow package. Set for ignition. It seemed best to have a double fail safe...
  8. Unexpected side effect from adding Christmas wreath to grill

    I thought maybe a wreath on the front might cause a cooling problem. So this. Haven't seen any reindeer yet.
  9. Tips from my weekend California JLU buying experience

    I bought my JLU from Manning Dodge. A great dealership.
  10. How is the starter holding up?

    A couple of days ago, I put my JLU into 4H to see if ESS would cut off the engine. I came to a stop and the engine cut out. I’ll give it another try just to be sure. Other than that, the ESS performs as you described. After two months, I’m getting more comfortable with ESS.
  11. Flat Tire Perfect Handling 60 MPH

    Thanks, appreciate it. Yes. Bridgestone Dueler A/T
  12. Flat Tire Perfect Handling 60 MPH

    Doing 60mph when the left front tire went flat in an instant. My JLU handled perfectly. By the time I could safely pull over, I had ruined the sidewall. The penetrating object did not stay in the tire, thus the reason for the sudden air loss. Anyway, kudos to Jeep for such great handling at...
  13. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    Two large German Shepherds in our house. Needed something to get to the vet from time to time. The blanket is long enough to cover the rear seats when folded flat.
  14. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    After looking at the cost of pet/dog covers for the JLU, I decided to try my hand at making my own. One furniture/moving blanket, some grommets, and a couple of bungie cords later, it looks like this. Total investment of about $30.00.
  15. The Jeep Wave.....or not (JL bias)

    I have a couple of Korean War Vet buddies who saw my new JLU and said that’s not a Jeep! I agreed with them! I know I said. Hey never disagree with a combat vet. Well it wasn’t long and they were very impressed with my that’s not a Jeep, Jeep. So I’m giving the wave in my it’s a not a Jeep...
  16. To Kill 12v Power to the JL/JLU

    Is the ESS Battery a deep cycle battery? I hope the JLU can be jump started if the ESS battery goes bad.
  17. Is the jl your first jeep?

    JLU. My very first Jeep of any kind. Though my Vet buddies tell me it's not a jeep. Had a Dodge 3500 DWR Diesel for 14 years prior. Love it so far.
  18. Getting a 4 door sport this week. Advice please!!

    I opted for the JLU Sport. V6 Auto. I added the Limited Slip Option. For around $600, you get the Dana 44 rear axle and A/T tires. A great value. Also added the re-enforced Spare Tire Mount. Rock Rails mostly as they finished off the look really nice plus the added protection. The only...
  19. Am I the only one who likes my Jeep?

    Special Ordered a 2018 JLU Sport Aug 22. It is now in my garage and it drives perfect. Its quieter than my former 2004 Dodge 3500 with a Cummins. A little wind noise (Hard top) that's kinda cool actually. Hothead headliners in the mail. It should be great. I'm truly sorry for the Rubicon...
