  1. 4.10 or 4.88 for my 3.6 ESS

    I'm on 35s and 4.88s and it's a dream with the 3.6. Tons of acceleration and calm on the highway with ~19-20mpg on flat freeway. I would have regretted 4.56s I think, the difference between the two isn't so massive that you'll regret it and I fear I wouldn't have noticed the jump from 4.10 to...
  2. Is the JL generation history in the making?

    I wasn't aware we knew the battery size of the Magneto, that's pretty cool. I agree if they can get rid of the transfer case, driveshafts, transmission, and fuel tank all in one go there may be enough room - but at the same time 70kwh in a Model S gets you ~250 miles, 70kwh in a Wrangler with...
  3. Is the JL generation history in the making?

    They could absolutely carve Jeep or really just the Wrangler out as a recreational brand and still offer ICE. They have a unique product that doesn't fit the mold like nearly every other consumer vehicle offered by every other manufacturer both in their suite of companies and industry-wide. It's...
  4. 2DR JL Rubicon Build, Kalashnikov

    Congrats on the rig! You picked the right amount of doors, lol. Along with the lift I would possibly save for a front driveshaft eventually if you flex it often. I'm still on my stocker but my 2.5" RK X factor lift netted a little more than advertised and my front driveshaft is maxing out and...
  5. Recommended gearing for Sahara V6 with 3.45 gears on 35s with a rear D44

    I got a lot of lift out of my 2.5 X-factor and my 315 Patagonias are bigger than my buddy's 35x12.5x17 KM3s, but at the same time my wheel/tire setup is lightweight so I may have an advantage there - I think the tires are only 66lbs and my wheels are 29lbs. I'm also a 2-door with no roof rack or...
  6. Recommended gearing for Sahara V6 with 3.45 gears on 35s with a rear D44

    20mpg highway if I really try for it and it’s not a crazy mountain pass. City driving I can score ~18mpg but I have a lead foot and typically end up in the 14-16 range.
  7. Recommended gearing for Sahara V6 with 3.45 gears on 35s with a rear D44

    The new D44s are certainly different than the JK ones but they're not D35 hybrids. I think the worst thing I've seen about them is that one of the roller bearings that the rear pinion uses is ball bearings to reduce contact and improve economy vs the typical large flat rollers to distribute load...
  8. Brought home new 392…what’s this?

    Pretty sure it's related to increased comfort or a hair of an mpg increase or something dumb - since the front axle is driven full time in these systems they don't want the bucking associated with U joints being driven through a tight turn.
  9. 2022 Jeep Wrangler Fact Sheet

    If I ever wanted to swap 2 door for 4 door, the fact that I could move from 4.88s to factory 4.88s is tempting. Regearing was hell for me with the first shop messing it up and leaving me to have to do it again at another shop. Love my 2 door though.
  10. 3.0L “Tornado” Straight-Six Engine (GME T6) Coming to Various Jeep Models?

    I mean, most of them have over 300 miles of range and regain that range while it sits in your garage overnight, so anyone having range issues and stopping up their day because they need to charge at a generic charger at a Target is likely an idiot. It's easy to live with, not that I'd be caught...
  11. 3.0L “Tornado” Straight-Six Engine (GME T6) Coming to Various Jeep Models?

    I'd say Tesla has it pretty much figured out. Cars that are priced like competing ICE luxury vehicles with 300-500 mile range that can regain 200 miles in 15 minutes at any one of the 1200 superchargers peppered around the country, or nearly a full charge in ~40 minutes from the same stations...
  12. 3.0L “Tornado” Straight-Six Engine (GME T6) Coming to Various Jeep Models?

    I agree there's absolutely going to be another motor in the next handful of years and I hope everything doesn't automatically go the way of the 4-cylinder. This is just my opinion but I don't like what the 2.0 does to the sound and feel of the vehicle when the 3.6 is borderline muscular by...
  13. NEW USB PORTS ON 2022'S

    This has been a thing for years. The 2018s and 2019s have USB C and USB A. It's not Apple, it's the entire industry.
  14. Normal JL Clunking?

    OP has a Rubicon so this shouldn't be it. No LSD in the locker-equipped D44s.
  15. Trade in Tacoma for a JLR?

    I don't think anything can compare to how fun the Jeep is to drive both on and off road. Especially the 2 door, it's a unique machine built for fun first and foremost. I don't get the same feeling driving a Taco or a 4runner, as well built as they are. The 3.6 with either the auto or manual is...
  16. 2022 Hardtop Production Halted?

    As a total aside, drive the 3.6 with the auto trans before you commit to anything. Both have their pros and cons but I absolutely love the way the 3.6 interacts with the 8 speed auto. Especially in manual mode, upshifting on aggressive throttle results in a little crackle on the upshift that...
  17. Will Jeep offer chrome grilles and accents?

    I've always thought it would be cool to sand down the paint and brush the body's aluminum underneath, and then get an aluminum milled replica of the OEM grill and the plastic cowl pieces to match. My foot has worn down the paint and primer on the door sill getting in and out for the past two...
  18. Camber heading towards out of spec.

    Any chance you had a hard hit with the front end on trail or otherwise? May seem crazy but check your axle tube where it goes into the FAD housing on both ends as well as where it goes into the differential housing and make sure all the spot welds are intact and there's no sign of a bend/the...
  19. High Altitude Tire Size

    If you're keeping the 20s I would assume you're not going to be flexing it out and doing heavy off roading, correct? I would bet 35s would fit for normal driving, I'd worry even less about a BFG KO2 35 which runs a little smaller. 33s will definitely be fine. If you plan on wheeling the rig...
  20. Search and Rescue Miller Jeep Trail

    As far as I'm aware the creek itself was closed for vehicle travel a handful of years ago when the main jeep trail was relocated up onto the mountain rather than through the creek itself. A local hunter I ran into on the trail last year told me the story a while back that it was done by the...
