  1. Trade in Tacoma for a JLR?

    A 2 door Jeep isn't necessarily a sensible purchase. I got tired of cars that just "checked the boxes" so to speak. The 2 door may be difficult with a dog, but if you just use the 4xE for that, it shouldn't be much of an issue. Odds are that if you don't know right now that you need the bed...
  2. Is a JL wrangler a good daily driver???

    The only times I would describe driving to work as the high point of my day driving was when me ex still lived with me. Good times indeed.
  3. Is a JL wrangler a good daily driver???

    I have to be honest, I would have trouble recommending a Wrangler as a daily to someone commuting almost an hour each way to work 5 times a week, especially if the majority of the drive is highway. Maybe I just like some quiet time before work (early morning) or after a busy day at work, which a...
  4. Considering buying my 16 year old a brand new Wrangler High Altitude

    Someone told me a story at work about one the their neighbors, who had a teenager, that wanted a Tesla. Kid "saved" some money, and parents cosigned a load for a Model 3. First week parked at high school parking lot someone dragged their bag across the car, scratching it all up. About a week...
  5. Quality of Backup Camera

    I haven't had a single complaint on my backup camera (2019 JLR) since my 8.4" radio screen died two months ago.
  6. How important are heated seats to you?

    As much as I like heated seats/steering wheel, and I doubt I would willingly order without them, in todays market, you may have to take what you can get. I would be upset if I got into an accident today, and needed a new vehicle, and found out I couldn't because they didn't have enough heated...
  7. Talk to me about 2-door JL Rubicons - QoL benefits from TJs

    I can go 75-80mph on the highway in my stock 3.6L 2019 JLR, without many issues. My mpg drops to about 16-17mpg (maybe 18) and my range on a full tank is rarely above 300 miles, but I am guessing that is better than a TJ. That being said, I would try and hold onto the TJ also if you can, but...
  8. Warranty concerns about FCA's worker availability

    Worker availability? What about parts? Dealer disconnected my radio (8" model) September 8 after they tried to reboot it for a bad GPS position. They called me in the beginning of October and said the new one came in. I brought my Jeep in and they said they didn't have the part. So two months...
  9. Pricing, Negotiation, etc

    I bought mine from Kate Morris at Courtesy Jeep in Coatesville, Pa. I would definitely buy from het again. I ordered my 2019 in 2018, I think I was around 4-5% off of invoice (about 10% off of sticker). I told her what I wanted, and she sent me a price about 30 minutes later.
  10. Dealership sold my 4xe without telling me

    I would pay over MSRP at another dealer rather than reorder from the same dealer. Of course the original dealer will reorder for you, they know they have you as a backup option as a customer if they can't find someone else first.
  11. JL Rubicon Resale (private party)

    To be "somewhat" fair to the dealers, they probably don't know what the market will be in a few months. Market is a lot different now than it used to be. Some manufacturers are still building and storing vehicles, waiting solely on chips and shipping. If new chips magically appear, they...
  12. US tax credits and the pending bill [Warning: NO POLITICS]

    You are right about EVs weighing more than ICE, but I think you are incorrect on the efficiency. There is a reason why EVs use a MPGe for efficiency. You could also argue ICE vehicles aren't as efficient if you have to include the drilling, refining, storing, and transportation costs. There are...
  13. Chances of 2 dr Gladiator?

    Sales is what convinced manufacturers not to build 2 door trucks, not the other way around. All of the manufacturers saw this, not just one. Sure, maybe someone says they want a 2 door, but they will buy 4 doors instead because of flexibility. Maybe they really do want a two door, but there is...
  14. Rumor: Out of new parts for 2021

    I need a new 8.4" radio for my 2019. I brought it in to a dealer September 8, their system estimated 4-5 days. 4-5 weeks later they called and said they had the new radio. After I got there they said they didn't have the part. Not sure if they used it on someone else or they ordered the wrong...
  15. Would you buy a Lambent Earth colored JL?

    I remember getting a loaner Acura a few years ago, they called the color "no-sale brown", almost no one bought that color, usually wound up in the loaner pool to be sold used later.
  16. Should I Stay or Should I Go Now??

    I would definitely have the dealer replace the engine. But I probably still wouldn't feel to comfortable about it. After the engine is replaced, you could shop around. If you don't find something you want or are willing to pay for, wait. If you have continue to have more than minor problems with...
  17. October 5 is tomorrow. Will the rumors come true?

    My 2019 Uconnect 4 unit is dead. GPS location was about 300 miles off. GPS synced time was 15 minutes off. When I brought it to the dealer, they tried to reboot the system, and it would just lock up. So they pulled the fuse so it wouldn't kill the battery while they ordered a new unit for me...
  18. Thinking about having my Jeep shipped?

    If there is a problem, the dealer may blame the shipper and the shipper will blame the dealer, but you will be stuck with it. That being said, I work with someone that bought a used Tundra shipped from a dealer in New Hampshire to Philadelphia and had no issues.
  19. Any other guys ordering Tuscadero?

    Buy what you want, not what I want. Your money. If you change your mind in a few years, buy something else. It's a vehicle, it isn't permanent. And if people think it may take a hit on resale because of the color, there are some that would pay more for that color. Color isn't going to change...
  20. 2018 Wrangler Sahara navigation has wrong location.

    I took mine into the dealer today, they tried to reflash or reboot the head unit computer, it kept on locking up on them. So now I need a new head unit. Also, because the screen was locking up lit up, it would drain the battery if they didn't pull the fuse for it, so now the entire head unit is...
