  1. Rugged Ridge JL Tube Doors Installed! *PIC*

    Price doesn't seem to bad with the discount, ignoring the fact that they're on back order and that site charges $150 shipping to a commercial address (probably more to residential). ;)
  2. Rugged Ridge JL Tube Doors Installed! *PIC*

    I like the mesh, never seen that before.
  3. Rugged Ridge JL Tube Doors Installed! *PIC*

    These were $858 shipped, including mirrors. The Mopar doors are $1200 shipped, not including mirrors, the best solution for which I've seen is the Chupacabra mirrors, which are only $40, but look like they lack a fair amount of adjustability. With those mirrors, since they're for a side by side...
  4. Rugged Ridge JL Tube Doors Installed! *PIC*

    Got my Rugged Ridge JL tube doors installed. I ordered these from Quadratec, less than $1000 shipped for all 4. Installation was very easy. The instructions weren't great but they were easy to figure out. The latch mechanism was pre-installed, but the hinges were not. You're supposed to put...
  5. Pulling a 16' Ultralite Camper

    I share the opinion that the rating is pretty damn low. Given the engine, trans, transfer case, axles etc. on the Rubicon along with the wheelbase, which is within inches of a Tacoma (which pulls a lot more), I honestly don't get it. The point about the insurance is a good one though, and I...
  6. Pulling a 16' Ultralite Camper

    Given the Jeep's towing capacity is 3500 lbs, I'm looking at getting one of these small trailers: This one seems pretty perfect for our situation, given the wife, myself, and the...
  7. Wranglers a lot like Harleys

    Glad to see I'm not the only Ducatisti here!
  8. 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL Info - What's New (So Far)?

    They've marketed it as "eTorque" now and it's not really a secret. The point is that nobody has said it'd be mandatory on the 3.6L Wrangler going forward, which is what I was told. We all knew it would be on the 4 cyl.
  9. Hood Lettering Decals

    Thanks :fist bump:
  10. 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL Info - What's New (So Far)?

    Sorry, no idea, we only talked about the Wrangler.
  11. My Garage Setup for Roof and Doors

    That's legit. I need to figure out a system like yours for lifting the roof off (those rigid anchor points). Right now I put a carabiner on the hoist and throw two straps under either side of the roof and link all 4 of the strap hooks to the carabiner. When I lift the roof, if I don't have the...
  12. My Garage Setup for Roof and Doors

    Super easy to sharpen the blades if you don't have to take the deck off. haha
  13. 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL Info - What's New (So Far)?

    I didn't ask him about the fuel type. I imagine it would be fine still with 87 since the entire system is basically a bolt-on and no engine internals change. If they change the BCM for 2019 and don't implement the 48V system because production isn't ready for whatever reason, that'd really be...
  14. 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL Info - What's New (So Far)?

    They've been working on the body control modules for the 2019 Wranglers since February. He's had a couple 2019 Wrangler mules already. He showed up in a 2019 RAM 1500 mule to pick up my wheels, and that was months ago. The 48V system is straight out of the 2019 V6 RAM (same engine, same 48V...
  15. 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL Info - What's New (So Far)?

    The RAM. For 2019 the V6 RAMs all have the 48V system. It's optional on the V8s. I read that in 2020 all of the V8s will have it. That didn't come from the guy who works there, I read it on Autoblog or Jalopnik or one of those car blog sites. They're trying to raise the economy across all of the...
  16. My Garage Setup for Roof and Doors

    I did a little write-up for how I set up my garage for storing my roof and doors during the summer. Space is at a premium and I didn't want to spend a ton of money, so I did one of the DIY carts, a DIY electric ceiling hoist from Harbor Freight, and DIY wall mounted door hangers. Didn't turn out...
  17. 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL Info - What's New (So Far)?

    I sold my stock Rubicon wheels and tires to the brother of a co-worker who programs the BCMs for the Wranglers. He said that for 2019 the Wrangler will be getting an entirely new BCM. He also said that the turbo 4 cylinder version won't be the only model with that 48V mild hybrid, and that the...
  18. Uconnect 8.4 issue - anyone else experiencing this?

    I'd be taking that right back to the dealer. Looks like a connection between the LCD and the mainboard is jacked.
  19. How much better is the JL over the JK?

    I haven't had any issues with my JL's steering, and it's got a 2.5" lift and 35s. It was sketchy when I first got the tires installed, as Discount Tire had them cranked up to over 55 PSI. Letting them down to 35 PSI and it handles fine now, even on curvy roads. Steering feels pretty good for...
  20. Firearm and knife collectors

    I've got too many guns, but these are two of my favorites... Bergara LRP in .308 with Vortex Viper PST II 5-25x50, and a Sig MCX Rattler in 300 blackout with a little Vortex Spitfire. 300 BO with a 5" barrel is LOUD. So fun to shoot.
