  1. Colorado MetalCloak shock mount brackets p/n's 7620 & 7621 BNIB

    MetalCloak JL shock mount brackets, front and rear Includes: - part #7620 (rear) link - part #7621 (front) link These are brand-new, still in un-opened boxes directly from MetalCloak. I got these a while back with the idea of reusing my OEM shock absorbers, but have decided to go with...
  2. TFL compares 4xe, Bronco, and Defender on serious off-road trail

    When you say 'first obstacle' are you referring to the section where they stacked rocks for the Defender and they put the 4xe's rear passenger wheel into a rock? If so, I believe you may have mistakenly identified the portion of the trail where the Bronco lifts a tire (where TFL does the split...
  3. TFL compares 4xe, Bronco, and Defender on serious off-road trail

    I ran this trail yesterday (guess I missed the TFL rescue effort by one day). My profile pic is from when I ran the trail last year. I can confirm that a JLUR can run the portion shown in the split screen TFL video without lockers (with sway bar disconnected). Edited to add pic

  5. 4XE Rear Seat Legroom

    The reason that the observed change doesn’t appear to match the change in stated specification is because of how rear seat legroom is measured. It is the distance from the front of the rear seat’s back rest to the back of the front seat (with the front seat in its most forward position). So...

    Those look like the Mopar bead lock (capable) wheels.

    Absolutely. I included that disclaimer because peak torque isn't the best way to do this, but it's something with the info we had (have) at the time. A better analysis might include: -FCA's statement that the 392 makes 75% of torque "just above idle" -The fact that electric motors produce...

    Indeed, we all have our personal perspective and opinions. And your opinion is your own. But as others have said, your statement reads like an assertion of fact, perhaps that's not how you meant it. I'm trying find some common ground among people who share a hobby. I posted a chart (much)...
  9. 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 V8 - Specs, Wallpapers, Videos!

    I'm trying to see your perspective and think I may have found it. Are you saying that the 392 has no off road benefit for the money? This statement "THE 392 RUBI HAS NO OFF ROAD BENEFIT OVER THE 3.6L RUBI" is just false. I and others have given several scenarios where the 392 Rubi does have...
  10. 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 V8 - Specs, Wallpapers, Videos!

    I'm curious about this too, but I don't think we have a definitive answer yet. The specs are 10.8" vs 10.3". I suspect it has something to do with reinforcements that FCA/Dana did. Perhaps the increased weight is squishing the tires just a bit more? ;) Maybe someone else has other ideas?

    Look, I wish that FCA did the 392 differently both in terms of options and features, but this is too easy... Look at what the 392 is doing in the ads. Desert running. The t-case will be in high range, thus negating the 4:1 "advantage" of the 3.6, but the 392's additional power, various...
  12. How much????? Insanity

    What @Chris Hall said is a true statement, but it doesn't address your question. Your ability to make use of the $7500 tax credit is not determined by the size of your refund (or lack thereof). Your ability to make use of the $7500 tax credit is determined by your tax liability. Example...

    I agree that FCA appears to be positioning this as a premium/halo vehicle. But enthusiast? Put that 392 in a Sport and I'll take it from there.

    I've seen a video (which I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed to post here, EDIT: Looks like I'm wrong because @SolarWizard just posted the exact video) where Mel states that he used the Sahara or Sport T-case (he couldn't recall which) on a JT, running 40s, with UD60's and 5.38 gears.

    Let's see if we can pull it all together in one spot: Base 2021 JLUR including destination: $43,690 List of mandatory options at MSRP (thanks @SecondTJ): $15,540 That's $59,230 Plus this stuff: a) 392 engine ($3,000 according to @oceanblue2019 's dealer) b) 2 inch lift with whatever shocks...

    You know...there are two ways to balance that equation. Increase money or...;)

    Spec sheet on the first post of this thread says 17x7.5. :(
  18. 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 V8 - Specs, Wallpapers, Videos!

    I’m not defending their decision to go with those ratios (it’s not what I wanted), but I think this is why they mentioned that the 392 has the ability to lock the torque converter on demand - to help with modulation. Of course, I have no idea how effective this is. Because they are measuring...
  19. 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 V8 - Specs, Wallpapers, Videos!

    I'd like more info on this as well. CV axles can be strong, reference the RCVs that many use to replace their front D44 shafts. The question is, how strong are the factory CVs? Same goes for the full time 4WD Rock Trac now available on the current Rubicon and 4xe. I realize this is a...
