  1. Starter keeps firing after 3.0 starts (videos and updates)

    Could you have pulled the starter relay after the engine fires up? (I'm not meaning to apply the luxury of hindsight to a trailside issue from the comfort of my living room, just wondering what would be best to do if this ever happens to me in a similar area.)
  2. Does Anyone Buy New, Stock 31" JL Sport Tires?

    I sold mine, 250 miles on them, just the tires, no wheels, for $300 on Craigslist. I probably could have gotten $350 based on interest. You probably won't sell them to another JL owner -- my buyer had a Commander and needed a new set of tires.
  3. Am I stupid for wanting to trade my Mojave for a 392?

    What if you just regear the Gladiator very deeply? That boosts 0-60 time, acceleration, etc. Eventually you'll lose top-end speed but you're not going to go 120 anyway. And it'll only cost you $2000 or so.
  4. Fire Extinguisher 👍🔥 = thx Everyone 🙏/ I ordered the ELEMENT Fire Extinguisher Today 👍💯

    I've always carried a Purple K because it's twice as effective by weight for Class B, so a 5 pound is equivalent to a 10 pound ABC on an oil/gas fire. As a bonus, it's less corrosive too.
  5. New 2022 Willys 2 dr tires

    Because the carpet is removable, it's easy to add further sound dampening to the Wrangler that will cut down on the tread noise.
  6. Suspension sagging due to added weight - spacer lift or.....?

    Bumpstop extensions either protect wheel wells from tires smashing into them or, more importantly, shocks from being overcompressed and destroyed. I would think OME knows what they're doing, but you could look up the compressed length of your new shocks and compare it to OEM to see if it's any...
  7. Overlanding Suspension Lift Selection

    There is an recent 11 page discussion on this exact subject (we discussed everything and beat it to death) with @SlickRickMotoADV, who has a 4-door but was in the same situation needing to carry an overlanding load but not particularly wanting a lift and wanting to keep 33s -- he ultimately...
  8. White, Silver, Sting-Gray or Granite? Convince Me

    I don't own any of those, so I have no bias in my answer: Silver Zynith is the sharpest and best Wrangler color. It looks amazing with the light titanium metallic color. With the metallic paint (not flat) it looks super super sharp.
  9. Included fuel with new jeep purchase

    Mark Dodge gave me a full tank!
  10. Has Anyone Gotten a Build Done in Under 60 Days?

    Nope. Mine took exactly 60 days. So close.
  11. Should I Sell JL for older model

    Whatever you lose is pennies compared to the financial freedom of not having a loan. I'd sell it in an instant.
  12. Engine Fan Noise After Increased Tire?

    People say they don't need to regear but the fact is that if you increase the tire size any significant amount and don't regear, you have departed from the OEM performance envelope for engine stress, cooling, and all the other components that factor into longevity. If you had 33s you're now 4...
  13. 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4-Door Tips Over Again In IIHS Crash Test

    Yes but the test is precisely specified and Jeep announced they made changes to improve the performance *on the test* and then failed miserably for a second time. I agree with you that in real life you're unlikely to strike at this exact location.
  14. 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4-Door Tips Over Again In IIHS Crash Test

    When IIHS tested a 2019 Wrangler a few years ago, it flipped in this same test in exactly the same way. Stellantis spent the next few years making fixes and the 2022 model has those changes. But now it's failed again...
  15. 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4-Door Tips Over Again In IIHS Crash Test

    I don't know. But my point is that Jeep thought they could, apparently, because they made modifications and then presented it for retesting. It would have been way better to do nothing and chalk it up to inescapable design if that was the case.
  16. 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4-Door Tips Over Again In IIHS Crash Test

    I agree. In real life hopefully you don't hit at this exact point on the Wrangler. However, Stellantis knew exactly how IIHS was going to test it so why they attempted a fix that didn't improve it is beyond me.
  17. 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4-Door Tips Over Again In IIHS Crash Test

    Yes, but keep in mind I'm not commenting on the safety aspect of it. Just the massive engineering failure, which has implications throughout the vehicle (corroding hinges, anyone?). Whether you care or not about their goal, Jeep ought to be able to reliably assess whether they can pass the test...
  18. 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4-Door Tips Over Again In IIHS Crash Test

    It's not just the safety though. This is really bad because Jeep made specific changes to fix the problem. That means that Jeep is doubly incompetent at engineering because they both (1) failed to fix the problem and (2) to accurately assess whether they had fixed the problem. It's one thing to...
  19. Is open Jeep a dying art?

    Ditto. If Toyota were still making new FJ Cruisers, I probably would have purchased one. I bought my JL despite its removable top, not because it had one. I'm often outdoors for 8 hours in the wilderness anyway -- the last thing I need is more exposure on the drive there and back.
  20. Eaton Truetrac?

    Had one in the rear of my WJ. Absolutely fantastic. Of course, all I do is talk about how great they are but meanwhile can't buy any for the JL. Come on, Eaton!
