  1. Finally got my Rubi! Now, I have questions.

    Same as everyone else mostly. I get anywhere from 15-16 all city to 18-21 highway. I will say that driving style is a huge factor in MPG with this vehicle. I can get 2-3 MPG better if I drive 65ish vs 75ish on the highway. The thing is a block, high off the ground; aerodynamics are not its...
  2. Pics of stock Jeeps -- no lifts, no big tires

    You broke the rules of the thread but I love those wheels. Specs?
  3. Pics of stock Jeeps -- no lifts, no big tires

    Had it up to the bumper in mud 12 hours after driving it off the lot. It's perfectly capable for what I need without major mods.
  4. Bestop Trektop with Spiderweb Shade on JLU?

    I may be able to get my hands on a very lightly used Trektop in my area. I currently run with a Spiderweb Shade under the hardtop on my JLU. After watching the install video for the TT it doesn't appear that it is possible to have both on the vehicle. Can anyone confirm? Also, I am open to...
  5. 2021 Seat Torture

    Makes sense and I don't blame you. Similarly, I don't brake hard at yellow lights, especially on 2-lanes roads with 65mph speed limits. I did it once and was rear-ended by a flatbed that didn't hit the brakes at 55 mph. Never again. From my standpoint a few things I made sure of to minimize...
  6. 2021 Seat Torture

    Not surprised, raw material costs are up across the board, ESPECIALLY metals. Between escalation and limited material availability product manufacturers/fabricators are having a rough go at it the last 6 months.
  7. 2021 Seat Torture

    There are a bunch of threads about this exact topic. Lift kits/spacers for the seats will work but are expensive. Here is what I did to mine, this is copied from where I posted on another thread: Not that people need another opinion but I think washers is the way to go (at least initially to...
  8. 4xe shut down on highway with charge error - think I know what causes it now.

    Damn, that’s a bad spot to have a vehicle die on you. Good luck getting it sorted out
  9. Wrangler as a daily driver?

    Yup, my JLUR is my daily driver. 7k miles in 2 months, no issues. Freedom panels off on the ride home most days makes the 90 minute commute suck a little less.
  10. Stripped Torx Bolts - Help!

    Score the paint around the bolt head with a utility knife.
  11. Rear storage option for JLU

    Dang, I'm jealous, waiting for the delivery of mine. Upload some pics when you get a chance.
  12. Sky-One-Touch ripped / punctured, any help on what went wrong?

    This is along the lines of what I pictured might happen when I was contemplating the SOT which is why I went hardtop. Sucks man, good luck getting it repaired and not draining the bank account. Not that it will be the prettiest repair and I don't know much about the fabric of the SOT but would...
  13. Long Hair, Don't Care (but need some tips)

    This is why I keep spare hats in the glove box.
  14. Ruh Roh

    Oh boy, no bueno
  15. Tailgate hinge paint chip

    Same here, I plan on flat filing the fillet at some point. In reality what will happen is I will live with it long enough to not care any more and it will just stay as-is. I know me well.
  16. Suggestions for a dead pedal....?

    This is the understatement of the week. I installed mine last night, pain in the butt but doable. Good luck getting to the back nut if you select the middle position on the bracket. I had to tighten it blind and the socket head was at an angle due to the nut proximity to the back of the...
  17. Alternator/pulley noise?

    Yes, this was the most noticeable noise on my JLUR.
  18. Tailgate hinge paint chip

    Thank for the feedback, I balked. I didn’t have hinges replaced and repainted. I had them hit the spot with some touch-up and we’ll see how it does.
  19. Tailgate hinge paint chip

    And just to clarify, they are replacing the hinges and then repainting. My concern is if my hinge casting was off I cannot be the only one. I can’t imagine mine was the only hinge made from that mold. I’m going to take a good look at the new hinge tolerances before I have them (if I have...
