  1. TrailRecon drops the Diesel

    I figure I’ve got 6,000 miles towing this from Arizona to Upper Michigan last spring, early to mid May up into SE Utah and across S Colorado and the return trip across New Mexico in the mountains In October. The plains sometimes get hot also and when running into the ever present wind, things...
  2. '22 Diesel Check In

    I haven’t researched the take rate of the diesel option as you have, but during the research and buying process that I did 11 months ago, one thing stood out. I bought our diesel in Phoenix in February of ‘21 and at that time, there were a lot of diesel Wranglers on the lots here. I had shopped...
  3. Engaging 4H

    Correction, this is bugging me about not remembering where I saw the video on adjusting the transfer case cable under the console. Further digging got me back to these forums. It wasn’t a video, but a series of pictures and I found it. I know there’s a way to link that thread and post it here. I...
  4. Engaging 4H

    I had that done on November 22 and had that video up on my iPad, I must have deleted it after my dealer fix worked. I’ve looked for it on Utube for a couple of hours now and can’t find it anymore, you’re right, all JK information. It was just under the center console cover and it kinda reminded...
  5. Engaging 4H

    I’m betting that it’s a quick adjustment of the transfer case control cable as I had previously posted on this thread. It maybe just the adjustment underneath the center console lever that you use to engage or disengage 4H or 4L. It took the transmission tech about an hour to adjust it and road...
  6. Engaging 4H

    Back in October I had another problem that dealerships finally took care of. Anyway part of the attempted fixes entailed dropping the transfer case to replace a sensor. Several days later I wanted to go into 4 H because of a sandy stretch, it went into 4 H for a short distance and then popped...
  7. Worst things to say about a Jeep?

    Sparty got me thinking and the worst I can think of, “nice station wagon”. Here’s a partial picture of my Michigan title where the Wrangler is listed as a station wagon for all the non believers. This is a JLU, my JK, 2 door was also listed as a station wagon. Michigan Secretary of State, that’s...
  8. Cancelled my order

    I was just wandering around on the internet and looking at auto/ truck/SUV articles and looked at Motortrend.com. There under the long term reviews section is an article about JLUR diesels that just came out. They seem to like it and there’s a section below the article with leads to previous...
  9. Cancelled my order

    Somewhere on these forums there was a post asking diesel owners if they had any problems with their rigs. Last time I came across that, it was something like 92% had no problems at all. Another thing that I wonder about is how many of these diesel detractors on these forums even own one or even...
  10. List of Chrysler MS-12991 Engine Oil for the 3.0 EcoDiesel Jeep Wrangler

    I stopped at my local DCJR dealer to get an appointment for my first Jeep wave oil change. We had talked about a week earlier and I asked about the MS 12991 Mopar oil and they ordered some, when I made the appointment, they said the oil was under an engineering review and they wouldn’t be...
  11. Towing with 3.0 Diesel

    AZ-Chris sure led us in a new direction with that reference to the TFL video of the new Ford Bronco towing in the mountains. Getting to the end of the video they’re showing an engine oil temperature of 244 and they also said in other similar tests Ram trucks and a TRX approached 260 degrees, and...
  12. Newbie Considering EcoDiesel order any advise?

    Racer X, an addendum, if your previously mentioned Excursion had the 7.3 L diesel in it and you loved it, I still have my 2002 F250 with that same engine and I’ve had thoughts of being buried in it, I like it that much. We’ve had our JLUR diesel for 6 months now and enjoy it very much, if the...
  13. Newbie Considering EcoDiesel order any advise?

    Here’s a picture that I’ve posted before. If you like power, torque and range, go test drive the diesel after driving the other engine optioned Jeeps. You’ll especially like it if you’ve had previous diesel ownership. Everything has pluses and minuses, choose what you like when you drive them.
  14. Road Trip while towing with the Jeep 4xe!

    I was sure interested in seeing what kind of mileage the 4xe would do towing, thanks for that information. We were starting to shop for a new Wrangler late last November and that was shortly before 4xe production was about to start and we ended up buying a diesel Ruby in February. We have a 22’...
  15. Guide me here... I'm a life-long manual transmission driver & I am considering making the change to automatic only because I want the diesel! Crazy?

    We did an almost 200 mile backroads and forest service roads drive yesterday in the Ottawa National Forest in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. No rock crawling or major mud holes, the region is in a huge rainfall deficit, but exploring back roads during the midst of peak summer tourist season to get...
  16. 3.0 vs 3.6 MPG towing

    An add on to my previous post. The ‘21 JLURD and the ‘02 Ford F-250 both have 3.73 gears and the Jeep with the 8 speed automatic runs about 150-200 rpm slower at the same speed as our F-250. The F-250 at 19 years old now has been my favorite vehicle, several times the thought of being buried in...
  17. 3.0 vs 3.6 MPG towing

    I’ve never towed with a 3.6 as our ‘13 JK was a 2 door and that may not have been the best idea with the short wheelbase. In late April and early May we towed our 22 foot travel trailer from Arizona to Michigan. Our trailer is 3000 pounds dry and with gear and water onboard it’s about 3500...
  18. List of Chrysler MS-12991 Engine Oil for the 3.0 EcoDiesel Jeep Wrangler

    Those are certainly all valid points of discussion and some I’ve never heard before and it certainly is nice to have a good conversation and hear the experiences and ideas of other people, isn’t this how theses forums are supposed to work , imagine, you can actually learn from other people...
  19. How did you decide on your engine?

    We’ve had our ‘21 Ruby diesel since February, the more I drive it , the more I like it. We are more of an adventure travel type users, we are almost always on our own when out exploring and one of the most important things about our vehicles is fuel range. With this rig and our previously owned...
  20. List of Chrysler MS-12991 Engine Oil for the 3.0 EcoDiesel Jeep Wrangler

    A thought came across about what other people have said about their experiences at dealers during oil changes. Some have reported that the dealers have put or attempted to put unspecified/wrong oil into their vehicles. I wonder and I say wonder, because I don’t have any data to back it up, if...
