  1. Driving in snow / ice…any tips?

    OP in North Carolina isn't gonna go out and buy snow tires for a one time snow event.
  2. Newbie: Winch for 4XE?

    There ya go. We'll just recommend everyone on jlwranglerforums to buy the 8274. :rock: https://www.warn.com/m8274-synthetic-106175 But seriously, I think we're probably about as close to mutual agreement as two folks yacking on the Internet are likely to get.
  3. Newbie: Winch for 4XE?

    I agree with almost everything you said above, but while folks tend to emphasize "line speed," the difference between the slower and faster winches isn't all that great. Even the fastest winches have a no-load line speed that's only around *half* of the Rubicon's crawl speed at idle, which is...
  4. Newbie: Winch for 4XE?

    There are lots of good choices out there and there reading all the thread on this forum will give you "winch overload." So, just a couple things: 1. The 4xe is already fricken heavy. So I'd think about mounting an aluminum winch bumper to save weight. RockHard makes some nice ones, but there...
  5. The great meaningless engine poll

    For the man whose Jeep just isn't heavy enough.
  6. Best Snow Tires for a New Wrangler 4xe

    One more thing - as I mentioned I'm running Goodyear Duratracs on my 4x4 Tacoma now. Duratracs are also the tire the El Dorado County Sheriff's office runs on their SUVs. I mentioned tire weight for the 4xe - At the 285/70R17 size, Duratracs are only two or three lbs heavier than the KO2. So...
  7. Best Snow Tires for a New Wrangler 4xe

    Oh no, another "best snow tire" thread. Usually I find it best not to reply to these, but since you're in Tahoe, same as me, I'll venture an opinion. "The Internet" loves to point out that dedicated snow tires (e.g. Blizzaks) are proven best in winter conditions. And so they are. Here's the...
  8. Front Axle Disconnect?

    Thanks for the clarification. I stand corrected, and learned something!
  9. Front Axle Disconnect?

    EDIT - based on replies below, looks like I'm incorrect. Leaving this reply in place because other folks below have replied to it. Uh, look at this video, describing how an automatic locker works: And this one, from earlier in the thread, describing the front axle disconnect: So, when...
  10. Frequent Host/Cloud Flare Issues?

    Seems like the site is down a few times a day.
  11. Why No Chains?

    I direct you to page 418 of the 2021 JL user manual, that talks about "snow traction devices" SAE "S Class" is a classification for measuring clearance of tire chains (and other "snow traction devices.") At the "S Class" level, there's enough room that some actual literal tire chains meet this...
  12. Trail Recon: 10 things Bronco has that the Jeep Wrangler needs

    Most of these things require tradeoffs. Personally, I don't want to make that tradeoff for most of them. >Being able to put the rear locker on in 4 HI Electric only change. Fine. >Auto up down on all 4 windows Simple switch change. Fine. >Frameless doors. NO. Do NOT Want. If you want...
  13. Trail Recon: 10 things Bronco has that the Jeep Wrangler needs

    Anyone who watched the video want to tell us what the ten things are, to save us a click?
  14. Wild animals, cooking, and overlanding

    I've backpacked and car/jeep camped. There are a couple of considerations: First: Bear socialization. We collectively don't want bears to learn to associate people with food sources. The more popularly used the camping area is, the more important this is. National Parks are a great example...
  15. What do you believe the designers and engineers got right on the JL?

    Everyone who's interested should actually go to the IIHS page https://www.iihs.org/ratings/vehicle/jeep/wrangler-4-door-suv/2021#front-crash-prevention-vehicle-to-vehicle And look at the results, and read what IIHS wrote. In terms of my original point, about body integrity and protection of...
  16. So I want to mount a chainsaw….

    Put it in the Jeep. If you don't want to do that, get a bumper with a super heavy duty swing out gate on it, and fab up a custom attachment bracket for that. Folks attach high lift jacks to swing out gates all the time, and a chainsaw is lighter than a high-lift.
  17. What do you believe the designers and engineers got right on the JL?

    >What do you believe the designers and engineers got right on the JL? OK, this is a bit dark, but on another forum I saw a photo of a 4xe JL that rolled to the bottom of a long hill at our local off-road park. The Jeep is totalled, but the rollbar protected the integrity of the passenger...
  18. 22 wrangler order date, vin and actual deliveries.

    (I actually meant to originally post this here in this thread, but put it in the stickied "mega-thread" instead.) Look, I'm not so very hard to please. All I want is a google-earth view with individually trackable pixels that represent the individual molecules flowing from raw materials mining...
  19. JL Window Sticker and Build Sheet Order Tracking

    Look, I'm not so very hard to please. All I want is a google-earth view with individually trackable pixels that represent the individual molecules flowing from raw materials mining, through the supply chain into refinement, bulk materials, assembly into sub-components, arrival at the Jeep...
  20. Did Jeep extend the range of the 4xe for 2022?

    Typo. 4xe has 17kwh. But I agree with the rest of your points.
