  1. Ford Bronco Raptor Revealed : 400HP V6 w/ 37's

    I'm really starting to believe that releases of Bronco products are really just harbingers of bad news. Ford: "The New Bronco is HERE!" Covid: "Naw. Have a shi* sandwich." Ford: "The New Bronco Raptor is HERE!" Life: "Yeah, poof! 1000pt Market Drop."
  2. What is the best 3.5" lift kit for a smooth ride, lots of flex, & low maintenance?

    My two cents... Metalcloak will give you the flex and the nice quiet on road ride. The other lift I would consider is Clayton. I have the Clayton Overland 2.5" lift and I love it. I HATE creaks and squeeks so I sacrificed a bit of travel with this kit but not much. I can always upgrade it and...
  3. Ford Bronco Raptor Revealed : 400HP V6 w/ 37's

    Oh boy. I love seeing different rigs on the trail, been even throwing the Jeep wave at Bronco's I see on the street. I could see having one of each in the garage but not to replace my Jeep. This Raptor will be well suited for the desert, not so much on tight technical trails. I already think the...
  4. Reign in the forecast?

    Screw You!!! :CWL: :CWL: (Completely kidding) I thought the same until I saw it in person and there was no other color for me. In a sea of white, gray, sliver, and black I like being different. I wish they would disco it now.
  5. Hood Vents - JLU/JL Rubicon functional or only decorative?

    I just opened mine all the way up. I believe the hood design originated with AEV and their hood is open. So, I cut mine wide open as well as the liner. I live in Vegas and summer temps are real. Combined with aftermarket fender liners, open vents, you can feel heat dissipate out the vents. I'm...
  6. Wrangler through the years…

    If you can reach out and touch it, it's real. Had a 69' CJ5, no A/C, no power steering, no power brakes (four wheel drum to be exact), marginal wipers, Buick V6, Warn Overdrive, 4:88 gears, leaf springs, yeah, "real". Being constipated by the end of the drive, real. Arms being spent after...
  7. 3.6 vs 2.0 turbo?? Which is better??

    And here I experienced the exact opposite. Had 35's on the 3.6 and hills became "fun" as others passed. Acceleration was "acceptible". 35's on the 2.0T and acceleration is entertaining and have had a few comments "didn't know Jeeps were quick". Up hills and in altitude I enjoy passing on the...
  8. Front & Rear Bumper General Opinions

    I looked for as minimalist as I could find both front and back. I wasn't worried about fog lights, but did want a recessed winch mount. Also wanted to support a smaller guy. I went Rusty's. I could have done without the winch hoop, but it was about as minimalist as I could find. After a weekend...
  9. HYDRO BLUE Wrangler JL Club

    I *think* VB is a tad lighter. They are pretty close. I've been trying to find one in the parking lot as I have wondered the same but no luck yet. Just got back from Sand Hollow over the weekend. Had a great weekend, no damage. Wife drove the entire trail. 38 degree climbs and decents make the...
  10. AC outlet, those that have it, what are you using it for?

    Charging batteries for phones, radios, kiddo electronics. All small stuff.
  11. 3.6 vs 2.0 turbo?? Which is better??

    Personally I don't think there is much difference between the two motors and if there are, it is disconcernable. It's hard to compare apples to apples when we are talking about our Jeeps. We have all done something different. I've owned both the 3.6 and now the 2.0T. Just came back from Sand...
  12. 3.6 vs 2.0 turbo?? Which is better??

    The one in my driveway, duh?! I have the 2.0T, had the 3.6 in a JKU. More than the engine, I'm in love with the transmission. JLU is superior in driveability to the JKU. For me, I like the 2.0T. I like the exhaust noise as for me it's reminicent to my family's CJ5 and CJ3B. It's a fun drive...
  13. Things you have learned the Hard way about owning a Jeep.

    I've learned that after EVERY wheeling trip I identify at least two or three things I NEED (not want, please!) to get. This weekend I'm headed to WinterJam in Sand Hollow. There are venders there. Lord help me.
  14. HYDRO BLUE Wrangler JL Club

    Metalcloak. At the time, they were the only ones I could find that had the turn signal and marker light in them. I love the Genright fenders as well, but couldn't get a straight answer on turn signals. I absolutely love the Metalcloak. Just a few weekends ago I got bumped on the trail, no...
  15. Does having a steel bumper help in a mild collision?

    I would say the location of this hit helped as well. Right behind this area is the frame horn and between the two a crush can. Steel of course will hold up better than plastic 100%. If you are willing to go aftermarket, I would say some offerings will provide even more protection than stock...
  16. Brainstorming: the ultimate JLUR on 35s

    Well. It depends on how far you want to go. After research I didn't go with a 3.5" lift because "it will look goofy". I don't know honestly if that is sound or not. I ran 37" tires on my JKU and it changed everything on the Jeep and I didn't care for it. This JLUR is my daily, but I wanted to be...
  17. Flush Mount Style LED Tail Lights for Jeep Wrangler JL

    I have the BSM and let me tell you, on the trail, once dirt, snow, or mud starts caking on, they work REALLY well. I love me some warning lights or system inop messages. Sigh....
  18. Oracle flush mount tail lights!!!

    I have all the hyperflashing and warning inside the vehicle. Just an update. I love the way they look 100%. I have the Tazer Light. I'll move to the mini so I can get rid of all the issue if Oracle doesn't come up with a solution soon. (which means I'll be upgrading, ha!)
  19. Oracle flush mount tail lights!!!

    Rusty's. I was trying to find a link for you but I don't see it on the site right now. It's in pictures... I have this setup as pictured. https://www.rustysoffroad.com/jeep-bumpers/rustys-jeep-bumpers/jeep-jl-bumpers/rustys-xtreme-trail-stubby-rear-bumper-jl-wrangler-32092.html
  20. Oracle flush mount tail lights!!!

    I'll have to pay attention on the way home today. Nothing came on this morning.
