  1. Casey 250 drops his Diesel

    Not sure he's the best for technical opinion but I do like his videos for travel ideas. I suspect he's going to the 392 like many of the other youtubers.
  2. S&B Hood Scoops

    Anyone using these or have review or opinion. Like the look but wondering how functional they may be and if rain etc. Might be a problem. https://www.sbfilters.com/jeep-scoops/as-1015
  3. Diesel and DEF issues for Truck Stops

    Not sure if this might affect normal access to DEF and Diesel for consumers. I have not seen any shortage of DEF locally either bulk or in containers. I do fill up my motorhome at Truck Stops and my local TA with a TSD discount card is near mid level gas prices at 4.43 currently. The Pilot...
  4. Pump price shock - how high will it go [CLOSED DUE TO POLITICS & VIOLATORS BANNED]

    Glad I get good mpg but just paid the most ever at 4.09 and I'm in a relatively cheap fuel state.. Traveled last month in my Diesel MH and most I paid at truck lanes was 3.45 (always more than at the car pumps). Looks like they are really shooting for that $5/gal goal. Reg Unleaded was 3.90...
  5. Add the Braptor to my collection or upgrade the jeeps?

    I know this discusses the Bronco, but I need Jeep owners opinions please. I will be one of the few getting a Bronco Raptor this year (was one of the lucky early reservations that got selected). First, I had initially ordered a Badlands Sasquatch to compliment my JLURD. When the opportunity...
  6. UHMW with Next Venture Skids

    Anyone out there have experience with the UHMW material that can be added to the skids. It's described as a cutting board like material that allows you to slide over obstacles easier. Very close to order the Next Venture Skids and wondering if the UHMW is worthwhile. My JLURD is not a...
  7. Diesel catches fire while parked

    Trying to find out more info. This was somewhere near New Orleans. Just the pics posted on Facebook. Owner has no idea what happened.
  8. What is normal oil pressure?

    While overlanding on forest roads in 4-hi and speeds under 20 mph I noticed my pressure dropping as low as 15 when stopping. Engine performed normally although definitely more diesel sound than I'm used to. Just want to confirm if ths is normal or not.
  9. Off Road Plus high RPM

    I've found using Off Road Plus on hill climbs in Drive, the RPM's seem to run pretty high holding 2nd for entire climb. Just wondering if others have noticed the same or if perhaps Off Road Plus isn't ideal on a hill climb. Coming from a manual TJ where 2nd is always the gear of choice for...
  10. Manufacturer supply frustrations

    Just got this from ARB regarding the dual compressor: Best to get in line with either 4 wheel parts or premier performance/northridge 4x4. They are trickling in, but the backorder volume on this item is 1000x more then ever before. We literally have thousands on backorder and that list keeps...
  11. Heat from passenger floor area

    After driving for several hours both hwy and in town we could feel a noticable heat buiding in the passenger foot well. The AC was on and outside temp was 78. Only went away when I vented AC to both dash and floor. I'm wondering if this is just exhaust temp creeping into that area (regen?) or...
  12. Rusty's winch plate with Badlands Apex - not quite fitting

    I purchased the Rusty's winch place since I had seen other threads where it worked with the Rock Jock Tow Plate. I've also seen others that have installed the Apex 12K winch. I ordered direct through Rusty's and the plate I received is the newer angled one. Very tight fit and had to drill out...
  13. Jscan modules and TPMS

    Trying to figure out if I'm seeing correct info in Jscan app. I'm using vLinker MC+ with security gateway bypass cable. When I attempt to see any module info all I get is the following image. Seems like I should be seeing useful info. Also..attempting to change tpms thresholds in adaptations...
  14. Removable rack (Yakima, Dee Zee) to hold 270 awning

    Looking for a removable rack that would allow a 270 awning to be mounted. We use our Jeep for short weekend 'overlanding' outings and other times we are trail/rock crawling. When using for pure trail riding I don't want the rack or any extra weight and may remove top completely. I've been...
  15. Engine stopped - ESS was turned off.

    This has happened twice. Both times as I was pulling into my garage. It's a tight fit so usually my wife will jump out and guide me in. Both times, I had been on brakes and stopped multiple times but at a certain point, as I'm inching forward the last couple of feet, the engine stopped. ESS...
  16. LED headlights going on/off when vehicle is off

    2021 JLURD picked up fist week of October. Just over 1100 miles and recently towed behind motorhome for a a few thousand miles. Heading home we were in torrential rain for 2 days. Everything was working fine. Decided to go through car wash to clean road grime off. Later that evening our...
  17. 37 Nitto Trail Grappler vs Ridge Grappler vs BFG KM3

    I've been partial to BFG and have 35 KM3's on my TJ. The new JLURD is getting a lift and trying to decide on Tires. Since this is more of a daily driver I'm thinking of going with the Ridge Grappler over either of the true MT's.
  18. Mopar flat tow harness - Diesel

    Has anyone installed this on a diesel? I just received and the instructions for everything starts at the air-cleaner and then down passenger side. The diesel air cleaner is on Driver side so not sure if I should simply do everything down driver side or if there may be more to this. Also, is...
  19. Off Road Plus and Select Speed Control

    OK, I'm a bit old school and am very familiar with my 2002 TJ. It's manual and very much hands on. The most advanced thing I have is ARB lockers. Having a hand throttle is my only 'trick'. This new JLURD has some fairly alien tech beyond anything I'm used to. Trying to figure out when to...
  20. New 2021 JLURD - steering odd

    So just brought the new Rubicon Diesel home the other day. I was relieved to hear that the steering box fix was included on the new 2021's especially since we had driven a few and noticed the loose steering. What we are noticing is at slow speed, below 40, the steering almost seems over...
