  1. 2020 Colors

    I appreciate the feedback about the color. I was planning to order a JLUR next year and give my Renegade to the wife when she gives her Journey to the last kid at home. It is most likely a moot point now. After 13 years and $106,000 of MOPAR products (not counting parts/service, that's vehicle...
  2. 2020 Colors

    Why is Mojito supposedly being discontinued? My finances have changed, so I'm 2-3 years out from getting a JL Rubicon now, but that is the only color I really want. (with a name like Lime, will any other color do?)
  3. Am I the only one?

    I want a JLUR in Mojito. The wife keeps trying to change my mind. With a name like Lime, will any other color really do?
  4. Stood and argued with the service dept for 5 minutes over maximum quarts of oil

    I had a 15 gallon barrel almost full of used oil. I found a guy on Craigslist that burns it as fuel in his old diesel truck. I called him and told him to bring buckets and it was his. Next time the barrels full, I'll call him again.
  5. Jeep Wranglers Piling up on Dealer Lots - Bloomberg

    Almost every Wrangler JL on the three dealers lots close to me is the 2.0 engine. Methinks they're gonna get screwed when nobody buys those and orders what they want or just leave state and drive or ship one back (I'm in Alaska). All the off-road guys I've talked to want absolutely nothing to do...
  6. What is This Dash Nubbin' For?

    If you open the dash up, can you put the non-sensor piece in its place and then secure the sensor inside the dash where it will stay dark? Was just a thought that popped in my head.
  7. Frost on the dash

    Do you run with the air recirculation on? I'm in southcentral Alaska, so I see temps in the single digits, sometimes negatives. I found that running the recirc air causes moist air to stay in the vehicle (from snow melting off shoes/coats) and can cause the frost inside issue. I stopped using...
  8. Class II Hitch Looks Like a Class III to Me

    The size of the receiver doesn't necessarily reflect the class of the hitch. Yes, "most" class 2 hitches are the small 1 1/4" tube. That said, the larger 2" size has more options for types of hitches you can use. I would guess this is why Jeep used a 2" receiver instead of the smaller size. My...
  9. Who else is in the "I'm still waiting to buy a Wrangler club"? What are you waiting for?

    Well, I was on track to order a fully loaded JLUR in May (2019), but my truck (07 Ram 2500 6.7 Cummins) was fixing to cost me several thousand in repairs and maintenance. Went to my local dealer and test drove a JKU Sahara. Didn’t care for it too much (the main thing is the running boards were...
  10. It has been confirmed I have a rear main seal leak! Unreal!

    James, Was in my local dealer last week. Ended up buying a Renegade Trailhawk as the price was right and my truck had to go. The sales guy had the only competent service writer come say hello (the other guy set me off three weeks ago with the wife’s car). I asked him about the rear main seal on...
  11. Help: Chrysler holding my Jeep with no answers

    Personally, if the GM of the dealer holding your vehicle or the owner doesn’t share some info with you regarding status and who’s on the hook for the loaner car, I’d file a police report as a stolen vehicle. I assume you’re still paying for it. As they’ve siezed it with zero communication on...
  12. What is your favorite roof rack

    RussJeep1 In the original post, you mention reproducing a design without patent infringement. If you’re building a rack for your own use and won’t be selling it for profit, where’s the infringement? I would think you’d be ok as long as you’re not making money off it.
  13. What is your favorite roof rack

    I would not try tilting the Gobi rack with anything on it. The design is for the four attachment points to carry or hold whatever load is on it. By tilting it with the load, as soon as the front moves, the weight on the rear two connection points/hinges doubles. Say you have 800 pounds of gear...
  14. JLU Rubi Rear Window Implosion!

    I have seen rocks kicked up by passing vehicles strike the rear of vehicles, but only at sub-25 mph speeds. Mainly at places where there's a line of cars waiting on a pilot car to lead them through construction zones. I would suspect either someone shot it out or it was one of the other two...
  15. It has been confirmed I have a rear main seal leak! Unreal!

    The 3.6 V6 goes back at least to the 2012 model year. My wifes 2012 Journey has the same Pentastar 3.6L V6. Saying they have no/few parts for that engine is BS on the dealers part.
  16. 4H or 4L

    That is the old Alaska I grew up in. Now with all the imported Texas and Florida drivers I keep seeing, I run in 4H if anything is on the pavement besides water so when I step on a pedal, I get instant response to my input. Be it braking or accelerating to keep from getting hit. If I was the...
  17. When your spouse is awesome

    When you get to Alaska look me up. I'm in Anchorage. I'll be ordering a JLUR in the spring so I can road trip to Ohio for a family thing in June (19) and trade my truck in on the way.
  18. JL Security in the Digital Age

    Food for thought, the steering wheel lock devices actually are a visual deterrent only. So for that portion you are correct. However, for a $20 investment, your vehicle drops significantly on the likely to be stolen scale. It may get broken into and things taken, but the theft of the entire...
  19. JL Security in the Digital Age

    If you want such a device (the kill switch), I'd strongly recommend against having it a factory or dealer option. Call it my paranoia, but several of the car thieves in my area (look up 2017 & 2018 Anchorage, AK car thefts) are getting info from people that work at dealers or have worked at...
  20. What's up with the variance in fuel range?!

    My guess, dealing with a Ram 2500 for 11 years and a Journey for 6 that do this, is that the computer is basing that range on your recent driving. So if you have been doing a bunch of in city driving, it'll show a low number, but if you've been cruising the highways, it'll show a higher number...
