  1. Yea yea off roader BUT who enjoys driving their JL onroad?

    Oh no, I'm a pretty good driver, but I'm not crazy on the road. For me it's more about traffic coming the other way. I've seen other drivers come across that center line. But, it has been a while since I went there (2016). I was nervous about that in the MR2. Had a couple of close calls the...
  2. Yea yea off roader BUT who enjoys driving their JL onroad?

    I have been wanting to take my JLUR to the Dragon, went several times in the 91 MR2 turbo I used to have (not close to stock, built for AX & Time Trials), that was a blast. Definitely enjoy drivng the Jeep everywhere. But, I thought if I take the Jeep, then I could take it more places to go...
  3. As a new 392XR owner...

    Yes, now tell me the riddle of steel. But remember, it is not the power of steel, but the power of the hand that wields it. Seriously though, I have needed this thread, after the last 18 months I needed a good laugh. :CWL: Been sharing this thread with my brothers & sisters at work. Good show...
  4. Tank Jeep Pics

    I don't know... The way folks are driving around here & all the car jacking, that M134 on top & on the front fender might be helpful. But, I thought this was about the Wrangler color Tank & thought it might be coming in 2022. Boy was I wrong. Couldn't help but laugh at the "commie weapons on...
  5. Surfing - what to do with key

    FWIW Yes , you can turn off proximity locks, I have them turned off on mine currently. In the menu on the Uconnect screen. Also, I go fishing & worry about losing the key or getting the fob wet (not a lot of room in the waders). But, I have a small backpack with lures, so I have a water tight...
  6. Frustrated

    No, you're not cursed, but it sure can seem that way. Just remember, sometimes you're the bug & sometimes you're the windshield. But, McDonald's is paying $21 an hour! Holy fudge, no wonder we can't keep Firefighter/Paramedics. And I thought it was the 24 hour shifts of bad calls after bad...
  7. Water fording

    You're welcome. Just to add a little more info... It appears that the automatic transmission is a sealed unit, so it may actually be better than a manual when it comes to getting water in the clutch vents. Plus, with the auto you won't stall out & worry about having to restart midway through a...
  8. Water fording

    No need to worry, that automatic will be just as good, or bad, as a manual. I would be more concerned about water sucked into the air intake. So, just look at the water fording label & try not to get deeper than that. I know my 2020 JLUR is 30" & the JLUR XR is supposed to be 33.6 inches...
  9. Sting Gray vs New Earl Gray

    You're probably right. I was just assuming & you know how that can go. ;)
  10. Sting Gray vs New Earl Gray

    Well, my favorite Wrangler color is Anvil. I waited for the 2020 MY to see if it was coming to the JL. But, after seeing Sting Gray, I really liked it. Overall I'm glad I got my 2020 JLUR when I did & really glad I got Sting Gray. I have to admit that Earl Gray looks interesting & could be...
  11. How much money for order ?

    As others here have said, $500-1000 is normal. Some dealers will refund, some will not, if you don't buy it once it is in. But, do not give them your down payment, until you see & drive the Jeep you ordered. Make sure on delivery that the fuses are pressed in nice & tight & tires aired down to...
  12. A week in Wyoming

    Very nice, I'm definitely looking forward to these types of trips. Looks like a great time. I would have had to stop & fished in those lakes & rivers. Nice Jeep too, makes me wish I would have gotten a painted top & fenders on my JLUR. They look nice with the JL, especially in Sting Gray. :like:
  13. Honest feedback

    My 2 cents... Came from a 1990 Toyota 4x4 & a 1991 Toyota MR2 Turbo. Truck 4 cylinder, 5 speed, nothing fancy, pretty bare bones. MR2 completely different monster, built & corner balanced. Set up for auto-cross & time trials. As it set on Z2 Star specs, it would run upper 11s in the 1/4 mile &...
  14. What's your favorite color that you didn't buy/order?

    Yep, wanted Anvil, waited for 2020 models & couldn't wait any longer. Really like the Sting Gray though. But, I will admit that Mojito is pretty cool. Just too flashy for me. :rock:
  15. Engine Dilemma? Joe Biden Chooses a 4Xe

    He couldn't have, he didn't have his seat belt on. Stupid auto-park! :headbang: ;)
  16. 5 weeks offroad and overland with the 2021 JLUR Diesel (w/ AEV 370 package)

    Glad to hear you had a good time in Memphis. Your Jeep would have looked good in front of Bass Pro too. The Pyramid makes for some good photos. I can't wait to do some trips like this. That pic makes it look like that cougar mount is lying across your front bumper. :like:
  17. Coffee with the Wiborn's

    I like the way you're thinking. But, it looks like the city suckered me into 2 more years. Pensionable, retention bonuses means I stay 2 more years & retirement will be at next promotion level up. About an extra $10,000 a year. So, looks like I may be leaving at 57 instead of 55. Enough of me...
  18. 5 weeks offroad and overland with the 2021 JLUR Diesel (w/ AEV 370 package)

    Nice! That last pic is amazing, lightning bolt & rainbow in that setting. Simply beautiful. I hope the I40 bridge being closed didn't ruin your trip to Memphis. Traffic has been terrible because of it. Hopefully you had some good local BBQ. Have any other pics? That Jeep on Beale Street...
  19. Coffee with the Wiborn's

    Looks like a good time & a great place to have a Jeep meet. I certainly look forward to these types of activities. Just need a break. But to get that, I may have to retire earlier. Oh well, definitely looks like everyone had fun! Keep 'em coming. Certainly looking forward to more trip pics &...
  20. Rubicon Poll - Have you had problems with your locker sensors

    Added my vote. 2020 JLUR bought on 12-30-2019. Right now, I only have around 9300 miles. Job wouldn't let any of us take vacation last year & I haven't had much time off this year. Don't drive it much to work because some people keep busting our windows out & stealing stuff out of vehicles...
