  1. Dealer put "Anything less than a 10 on the survey is failing" on my Invoice.. How about delivering service that warrants a 10?

    I figured they weren't anonymous so that they can call you back and make things right. But I can see this quickly turning into a hostile environment if you score them low. I was lucky that my salesperson was great and would recommend him. If anything, maybe Jeep/Stellantis shouldn't be hard...
  2. Dealer put "Anything less than a 10 on the survey is failing" on my Invoice.. How about delivering service that warrants a 10?

    Just a question. Are the surveys anonymous? If you put less than 10, does the dealer or salesperson know who it is?
  3. Installing Rooftop Tents

    I worry about the same with the hunting tripod. My wife said I had enough room, but I always think of the old camera joke about backing up too far. There's enough room, but it's something I'm cognizant of. I also think that if I bump the tripod, it may scootch a bit. If you bump the...
  4. Installing Rooftop Tents

    I like what you have going on but I would be afraid that those ladder extension steps would make it wiggle more. I like the winch on top. My first experiment was similar to that with the a-frame but I think I would need to just make it more beefy. Since you have a lot already built, you may...
  5. Installing Rooftop Tents

    The cargo carrier is an interesting way of doing it. With the rack I have though, it would be sliding up on the hard top. If you had one of those platform racks maybe it would work better. On another experiment, I used two 2x8's or maybe 2x10's with big hooks on the end. I hooked it to the...
  6. Installing Rooftop Tents

    Mind you, I have a stock JLU Rubicon. I don't have a lift or haven't changed the tires. If you were to use the stand as intended, the instructions say the hanger thing goes up 93" (7.75'). You could wheel the hanger all the way up to the top (at 107"/8.9'), but I wasn't going to try. The...
  7. Installing Rooftop Tents

    Well, I didn't take many pictures because I didn't want to dilly dally with anything too much. The best I have is security camera footage of the process. As for the width, everything is packed up and really hard to reach...but I would take a pretty good guess that I used 8' long 2x4's and a...
  8. Better Get the Jeep loaded up. Off to the Daniel Boone National Forest to run the Back Country Byway. Now with Pics.

    Thanks for the information. The two areas that concern me the most are the river crossing and the rock garden. I've heard the river can get up to 36" deep. I don't know if things have changed in recent years though.
  9. Installing Rooftop Tents

    Here are some pictures of it. I'm not sure the order it will post them but here's an overview... First picture shows the tent on the setup with the wood. I placed three rows of 2x4's under the tent but it flexed a bit too much. I then doubled up the 2x4's and actually ended up removing the...
  10. Better Get the Jeep loaded up. Off to the Daniel Boone National Forest to run the Back Country Byway. Now with Pics.

    I'm thinking about doing this on a group ride this year. Do you think a fully stock JLU Rubicon would be able to tackle it? It looked like 31's were a bit small, and the Rubicon in your trip had 37's. From what I researched, it looks like the areas where there may be issues is the river...
  11. Fluid Film inside of Frame?

    I wouldn't recommend anybody doing this. First, while great stuff is (i think) a closed cell foam, I would still feel like it could trap moisture. Similar to rubber undercoatings, once that moisture gets trapped in there, rust starts forming. I would think that water would find it's way...
  12. Fluid Film inside of Frame?

    I do agree, I think a lot of the damage starts on the inside and works it's way out. We all can wash the visible surfaces on a regular basis. I think salt water collects where we can't see it and then that's when the damage starts. What I posted is probably an extreme case from a 25 year...
  13. Fluid Film with Salt and Snow

    Thanks for the reply and an interesting service of how he does it. I google'd search a bit and it seems like what I generally found was just drive it normally and don't do the undercarriage washes. Car washes are OK but just skip the undercarriage. I also agree with applying it in the...
  14. Installing Rooftop Tents

    Hopefully this link works... I got the idea for it here. I bought the same hunting stands. Like this person, I have an iKamper, that weighs about 160lbs. He used two 2x4's as crossbars. I did that, but started to see a pretty big deflection in the wood when raising it. I ended up...
  15. Installing Rooftop Tents

    I've seen that one before and it looks nice. Personally, I ended up going another route because I'm not confident in my welding and had trouble trying to source parts. I ended up buying two deer gutting stands that stand maybe about 10' tall. I put a few 2x4's between them and raise and...
  16. Fluid Film with Salt and Snow

    Quick question with fluid film. I applied it in the fall and we're getting our first real snow this week. I know if you do an undercarriage wash or powerwash the undercarriage, you risk washing it off. In the winter, do you just drive it as is, or do you get car washes to get the salt off...
  17. Ceramic Coating.... Yes or No?

    I've tried mothers and meguiar's coatings, and wasn't thrilled with either of them. Yes, they are easy to apply, but I feel like they don't last a long time and aren't as good as the regular waxes. In reading more, it looks like Mother's lasts about a month or two. I feel like Meguiar's is...
  18. Does anyone use the "manual" mode on the automatic transmission?

    It's funny, I turned my gear chosen screen on in the odometer section and was surprised to see my jeep starting in 2nd gear in 4L. I guess they did it as a safety feature so it wouldn't be too aggressive. This could had been useful tackling certain obstacles. At least I know now and will...
  19. Personal experience with airing down stock "off-road" tires on 2021 JLURD?

    Since you are in Michigan.... :) I aired down to 15psi at Silver Lake and didn't have an issue. When I go to the badlands, I've aired down to 20 psi and that's when I had issues. At the badlands, I drive with a group and there's limits on how fast the group goes. It's a lot of newer...
  20. Personal experience with airing down stock "off-road" tires on 2021 JLURD?

    It is my daily driver and that's part of the reason I am shying away from beadlocks. I saw some AEV Borah ones that are DOT compliant, but I don't know if I want to be spending a weekend torqueing things down every so often. Being with the stock ones, is there something I'm doing wrong? Just...
