  1. 3.6L Battery Availability

    My main battery was 80% the rated CCA so I decided to replace it. Finding an H6 was no dice after visiting/calling 7 stores. But a 94R (H7) fits like a glove after you just pull up on that plastic tab near the front of the tray. Auxillary batteries seem plenty but I bypass mine.
  2. New battery, now it won’t start or turn off

    My Miata had a Panasonic AGM in the trunk that lasted 9 years and I had a wet cell on my riding lawnmower that lasted 6 years. Every other battery I've owned usually dies at 2 - 3 years regardless of the name stamped on the side. Load test them and plan on replacing soon once they drop below...
  3. Jeep dealers looking empty

    Not sure of the normal inventory but where I purchased claims to have 22 on the lot in the $50k-$61k range except for a couple. They have one two door and one 4xe on the lot else it's various versions of the four door Willy's, Sahara or Rubi.
  4. 2021 JLU Already Towed to Dealer at 114 miles on the odo. Owned less than 2 hours... WTH

    True, brother-in-law was complaining his new Explorer had been recalled twice. He had a 2006 Durango with 240k miles and no issues other than worrying when it would die.
  5. Anybody's significant other unable to read a fuel gauge?

    Ha! Mine is nearsighted and not farsighted. She thinks the tank needs to be filled once it hits just below half! We've been married 35 years and I still get a kick when the fuel warning alert chimes when I'm driving and she panics.
  6. Minor issues growing in frequency

    Yes, learned about that when we bought a new minivan back in 1990 and the first vehicle we'd owned with all the electronic gadgets for that period in time. The battery went bad and the low voltage lit the dash up like a Christmas tree. It still had enough juice to start the car but the door...
  7. Just Deodorized my Interior with a Fog Bomb

    May try it in the wife's SUV but I won't mention the ad line of removing slutty smells. Can't use that quote on the Jeep either else she'll divorce me for being unfaithful.
  8. Odd requirements at a certain dealership.

    Mandatory $6k warranty? I've walked out of dealerships for less. Such as those $600 add-on packages where they put nitrous in your tires and shoot a can of scotch guard on your seats.
  9. Fell in the love then had slight heart break

    True! Back in my youth you could buy/install sunroofs in your vehicle. Someone tried to pry open mine with a crowbar which busted the glass but also bent the frame and ripped some of my top. Luckily I found a slighter larger sunroof and just cut my roof a little larger.
  10. Semiconductor Chips

    There's a general shortage but one model might have a chip that's even further back in the pipeline or in higher demand across the overall marketplace. Nobody has a crystal ball and the shift of finite production to consumer electronics when auto plants cut back may last 1 or 2 years. At least...
  11. Who folds their back seats down, and why?

    The wife's 12lb princess rides in the back seat though I have a dog seat cover/hammock. I suspect those with big dogs have the seat down.
  12. Who folds their back seats down, and why?

    Mine has been down for the past 3 weeks as we move. Soft top has been down too so I just throw a cargo net over everything to keep it from flying away. I made 3 trips with a Home Depot high-sided 5x10 trailer too. Thank goodness for Home Depot since UHaul bans soft tops.
  13. Doomsday clock ticking for non-performing Stellantis brands

    Journey was way outdated 5 years ago when we briefly looked at them. Only two new vehicles I've ever test drove that I thought were a joke compared to their competition. The Journey and an Astro back in the day.
  14. Century Club 100K Miles

    I still haven't hit 13k. WFH all the time and 3 decent sad.
  15. Soft top usage options

    Top down most of the time. Safari mode when the mornings can be in the 50's.
  16. Condition when picked up (brand new) at the dealer?

    Mine came with just a few miles and a few hail dents in the hood since Texas is known for those. Those were fixed in less than an hour and all has been good for 2 years.
  17. JL premium soft top loud rattle

    Nope. I need someone to crawl back there and find it when driving under the right conditions. Oddly enough, it also depends on which way the wind is blowing at highway speeds. I've had the windows out and/or top down for the past 4 weeks.
  18. Top up for summer?

    I'm not in the desert but we see humid days over 100. My tolerance is around 93-95 before the top goes on but I'm cold natured.
  19. Supply & Demand has led to a $100K 392

    The guy was probably selling toilet paper on Ebay last year for $10 a roll too. Someone impatient will buy it.
  20. Can you drive with the soft top windows out?

    Yes, been driving that way for the past 1+ month due to temperature changes
