  1. I would have never thought this even 10 years ago.

    Of course it would. It's just a question of speed ;)
  2. I would have never thought this even 10 years ago.

    I think the comparison is totally reasonable. People will cross shop them. It is also a question of what you get. The Corvette I have only seen once in person at an auto show. It seemed to be a far higher quality vehicle than the wrangler. Don't get me wrong, I love my Jeep and all, but it's...
  3. Reliability of 2.0T versus 3.6 etorque?

    While I get that people are concerned about longevity, I would say that by and large, the days of engines exploding are long done. I don't think that Jeep has made a "terrible" engine since the 3.8. There is a good reason that nearly every car maker in the world uses a 2 liter engine. You can...
  4. I would have never thought this even 10 years ago.

    I think it is location dependent. Nearly all those vehicles are not available in other markets. However, I did cross shop the Ranger Raptor. If It had the new 12 inch screen, I would have gotten the Ranger. The infotainment system they had and the hard plastics inside were deal killers for me...
  5. I would have never thought this even 10 years ago.

    84K is not far off Mercedes G350D money. Which, is just as capable and massively more comfortable to drive. Though the G is massively less customizable. Though.. you can get portal axles for them. I think that normal Wrangler rubicons hold their values very well. I can sell mine for about what...
  6. Now I’m torn…4Xe or Willys XR?

    My father said the same at 72, though in his case it was a Tundra 4x4. He said he always wanted a pickup truck and thought it may be he last chance. Unfortunately, in his case he was correct and only got to drive it for about a year. But.. when I had to take him to the doctors in that truck he...
  7. All this Bronco talk 🤢🤢🤮

    Even the idea of brand loyalty is nuts to me. Evey single car company is interested in one single thing. Separating you from as much of your money as possible. They are all a$$holes. Still, if you think Wrangler people are bad, then you should spend some time with Land Rover guys. Talk about...

    type o... put it back together.

    Better but it back together, fill it back up with water and start again... you know.. for the "likes".

    Likely they do for boards that live outside. However, the additional costs for interior controllers is not worth it. Despite the opinion of some on the forum, one cannot reasonable expect their Jeep to be a boat and still function after the first attempt.

    Zero. There is way those caps are not fried, not to mention that controller. Those boards are definitely not rated for any water ingress. Even if he has to replace every control module on the BUS, which is extremely likely, it's not going to be "that" expensive. I am sure the work will suck...
  12. DEF usage

    I am at 15km and I put in a 5l bag I had from my last car. it says I still have about 45% remaining, so I guess I will add some soon though.
  13. Will the 392 Join in the end game?

    Has anyone seen that company making hydrogen disks for fuel cells? Basically a thin film which the hydrogen is bound to and then gets released with lasers or some type of light. Apparently, it is orders of magnitude cheaper to make than pressurized liquid H2. You just pull out the large...

    You must not have lived through the 80's where everything had a turbo sticker on it... everything.

    I personally completely agree that car makers need to move towards vehicles which do not produce emissions (excluding what it takes to make them) However, why limit it? If Jeep or Honda or who ever comes up with a way to eliminate emissions from ICE cars.. what's the issue?
  16. I was just offered $51,500 by a dealer...

    For those thinking that the prices of the cars will drop again... you're smoking crack. They will never drop again. New car sales are very strong even with the average price of a car in the US being well over 40k. What have auto makers learned? We can increase the price significantly and people...

    Don't know who Dave Ramsey is, but I would say that statement is only sort of right. You should definitely avoid high interest debt. If you can borrow a lot of money at a low rate, then it is pretty dumb not to. For example, my wife and I could have paid cash for our house. But why they hell...

    Personally I think that payments should not be the main focus when considering financial decisions. I'd be more concerned with the interest rates and total amount paid over the course of the loan.
