  1. Looking for side mirrors for door-less driving. Soooo many options out there

    +1 for CMM. High quality, easy to add and remove, ability to mount other ball-and-socket accessories. Great option.
  2. BRIGHT WHITE Wrangler JL Club

    Sunrise at Lake Cushmann in Olympic National Park.
  3. Lucky Devil - Bright White Unlimited Rubicon EcoDiesel (JLURD)

    I drove to Olympic National Park this morning to watch the sun come up. Here's to more sunrises.
  4. Lucky Devil - Bright White Unlimited Rubicon EcoDiesel (JLURD)

    @4xFishin , Thanks! Funny you would ask that - I actually had that capability in my original design, but opted to not do it. It would be pretty easy to add though. You would need either a Normally Open (NO) pressure switch (which are hard to find), or a Normally Closed (NC) pressure switch...
  5. Mounting ARB Air Compressor

    Ah! A York mini! That makes a lot more sense. They're just as robust as their big brother, just in a much more manageable form factor. I don't blame you for going with a kit. You have to be very precise in making brackets for anything that's belt-driven. Otherwise you'll get belt squeal...

    Thanks, gents! I appreciate the kind words. I just need to sell this spare kidney I've been luggin' around so I can move on to the next project.
  7. Mounting ARB Air Compressor

    Can't wait to see this! I had a York on one of my XJs. It was a ton of work to get it in there, but that thing was bulletproof. Zero discussions about heat with a York compressor. They're tanks! I'm most eager to see where you're going to mount it. The engine bays in modern vehicles are...
  8. Mounting ARB Air Compressor

    Exactly. On the JKs, the compressors were mounted up high on top of the brake valve. It was ok for low-demand use like lockers. Every guy I knew with them mounted there would open his hood to air up tires though. It works. But it isn't optimal - especially when the weather is bad. As for...
  9. Mounting ARB Air Compressor

    @EU_Wrangler , you're correct - the bracket is set up for the dual compressor. But you could use the dual bracket for a single compressor if you're willing to drill a couple of holes. Depending on your use case, I recommend spending the extra money for the dual compressor kit though. Having...

    Thanks! No, not retired. Just quarantined. ;)
  11. JL Rubicon Bright White Owners Please Post Pics w/ Aftermarket wheels & Tires

    Hutchinson Rock Monsters. DOT approved dual bead lock (outer and inner bead). 17" x 8.5", 4.63" backspacing. OEM tires for now. They're heavy! 55 lbs each, which is more than 2.5 times as much as the OEM wheels at 21 lbs each. Be sure to keep wheel weight in mind as you plan what you...
  12. How does everyone mount their cell phones?

    One man's opinion - I think that's a bit of clever designing by Jeep. They could have easily made the Wrangler keys much smaller. I think they intentionally made the keys to be about as tall and thick as present smart phones + case are wide and thick. If it was *just* a key holder, they could...
  13. How does everyone mount their cell phones?

    I swapped from the iOttie Quick One Touch v2 to the RAM Mounts Quick-Grip. They're both wireless chargers, which is what I wanted. But the RAM Mounts version has a Kung Fu grip and is waterproof. I honestly think that if I rolled down a mountain my phone would still be in the mount when they...
  14. Lucky Devil - Bright White Unlimited Rubicon EcoDiesel (JLURD)

    Congrats on the order! I absolutely love the diesel. Ridiculous amounts of low-end grunt. I'm one of those guys who has been nagging Jeep to put in a diesel for a decade or so. Zero regrets. When I drive, I can't stop smiling. My wife has the 2nd generation EcoDiesel in her '16 Grand...
  15. Naked JL Pics - Topless and Doorless (Jeeps only please)

    I love being nekkid. Seems all my fondest memories are of being nekkid. DIY hard top and door hoist / storage, with write-up here.

    Thanks! And thanks for the banner image at the top of the page! :like:

    Thanks! I'd love to see pictures of your installation once you get it done.
  18. Bike rack options?

    I recently purchased the Quadratec platform style 2-bike tilting rack. Kinda wish I hadn't. In terms of quality, fit and finish, it's great. Quadratec stuff is usually really great quality, and this was no exception. It's a quality product. I have 2 complaints: Even with the tilt feature...
  19. Bike rack options?

    Optical illusion... for a second there, it looked like you had a drag slick on your bicycle. Brings new meaning to the term "fat bike."
