  1. Soft Top Musings

    I love running around with just the rear window out and door windows open. In order to better secure the side windows, I drilled a small hole at the bottom of each one and connect them together with bungie cords. Looks a little funny but it seems to do the job just fine - even at highway speeds.
  2. Cold feet on doing the long drive - any shipping advice or experience?

    Currently on a road trip (Florida, Texas, Colorado, Wisconsin, and back to Florida). So far so good - I find the Jeep easy to drive long distance as it is not so smooth as to lull me to sleep but easy enough to control on the highway. My thoughts were that anything can go wrong with any...
  3. Jeep Emblem Location

    I went whole-hog and took off the both the emblems and the stickers... I'd remove the stupid "Trail Rated" badge as well but it would leave a ridiculous looking indent... May try and find something personalized to fit in there...
  4. Who folds their back seats down, and why?

    Mine stay down except for the very rare occasion when I have a third person in the jeep. Love the utility of the cargo area.
  5. Topless Trek?

    Lots of other factors - where will you be stopping for the night(s)? Plans to leave Jeep parked somewhere unattended for extended periods of time? Plans to do any shopping (and thus have purchases in Jeep)? Weather - provided the forecast is good - would be a minor concern of mine.
  6. Torn between Teraflex Spacer Lift vs Rancho lift

    I installed the Tereflex on my 21 JLUS in the garage in a few hours. Relatively easy and good way to save some $$. I have zero complaints about the on-road manners of the Jeep but have yet to try it off-road so do not have an opinion on that.
  7. If you were going to buy a sporty car for your wife?

    Was going to suggest a Mini Cooper JCW Hatchback but then you said you have problems fitting into smaller cars. The wife and I are both smaller people and fit the her Mini just fine. We have had four of them over the years and keep coming back to them. They are a blast to drive (think go kart...
  8. Soft Top Lovers Club- Tips and Tricks

    I get around this by drilling a small hole at the bottom of each upright at the rear of the side windows and hooking together with a pair of bungee cords. Keeps the clips from blowing out at highway speeds. Works for me but use at your own risk... Edit to add quote that got left off... "Only...
  9. remote entry doesn't work after taking door off

    Take connector back off and inspect pins - one may have been bent or recessed when you hooked it up.
  10. Rear Spare Tire Plastic Drip Tray

    Reminds me of the time I went to another town to look at an advertised Jeep (really low price). Got there and the salesman said "We have one out back..." Turned out the low-priced model came with a driver (only) seat, no top, no spare, no radio, no floor coverings, etc... The only things it...
  11. HELP,,, Jeep won’t start :(

    As a previous avionics technician, I would be very curious as to exactly where the pinch was and specifically how they repaired it. (Thinking long-term reliability, etc...)
  12. Sudden Stop When Reversing / Tire Pressure

    Curious as to how the rim was repaired... Welded?
  13. Is open Jeep a dying art?

    SW Florida here... If possible (rain and/or wife permitting), I have the windows down and rear wide open all the time. I do leave the top in Safari mode quite a bit as the sun can be brutal sitting in traffic but I do what I can to be as open as possible otherwise...
  14. Rubber style cargo mat for 2018 jlu

  15. JL Creeps forward while in Neutral - Auto Trans

    I'd be curious as to how much "force" was behind the creeping... I'd probably have the wife put in Neutral and try to hold the vehicle myself on level ground. If easily stopped by hand, I'd probably not worry about it, but if it requires a significant push to hold it in place, I'd take in and...
  16. Anyone have 2 door regret?

    My only regret is that the 2 door has such a low tow capacity that I had to get a 4 door just to be able to pull my boat... I'd much rather have a 2 door.
  17. Best way to remove dealer sticker?

    Condition of sale whenever I purchase a vehicle. No stickers of any kind...
