  1. My experience with JLU Sport with auto, 3.43 gears, Mopar 2" lift and 33" AT tires

    Body lifts seem to get a bad rap and I don't know why. They're affordable and they get the job done, if the purpose is aesthetics. If you do it right, you can't tell the difference between a small body lift and an equivalent amount of suspension lift. For example a 3" suspension lift with a 1"...
  2. My experience with JLU Sport with auto, 3.43 gears, Mopar 2" lift and 33" AT tires

    It's been my experience that lifting, regardless of how it's accomplished, will effect fuel efficiency. Some lifts have a bigger impact than others, but you're not going to completely avoid its effect on aerodynamics. And as Aldo said, as set of Rubicon take offs should work without needing...

    She looks like a great pup.

    Poor dog. I'd throw a stick, not the dog, but that's just me. 😁

    Ha ha, somebody does not look amused by the unexpected rinse.
  6. Tire comparisons, Owner ratings chart. What's good and what's hype

    They aren't the worst tires I've ever had in the rain, but not the best either. Your observations is certainly consistent with the average ratings, with wet traction being its lowest scoring category.
  7. Tire comparisons, Owner ratings chart. What's good and what's hype

    I don't know if I'd say they're "much more relevant" since the ratings on those sites are for any type of vehicle. Yes, they do have Jeeps on there too, so I wouldn't discredit them. The idea for this chart was that we have a community of JL owners who have used the tires on the same model...

    Looks like you had fun.

    LOL must be the shadows making it look darker. 😁

    LOL, how can you resist the pittie smile though. Of course you have to give him a reprieve.

  12. Tire comparisons, Owner ratings chart. What's good and what's hype

    The Goodyear Duratrac is the first thing that comes to mind for me, but they're an F load range. These are probably my favorite tire, but they tend to be expensive. They have the severe snow rating (mountain/snowflake) which means it handles snow and ice well. The lugs are siped which gives...
  13. Auxiliary reverse light

    Those are the same ones that I have pictured on my truck. Cheap, effective, and so far they've been pretty durable. I may try to find some floods instead of spots, but even as a spot they can be aimed to be effective reverse lights. For the price they're hard to beat.
  14. Auxiliary reverse light

    As previously seen my Jeep lights were mounted on the bumper. I later found some mounts that allow you to attach them to your hitch tube. Here's a phot of the set of lights I put on my Ram using them. If I were doing the Jeep all over again, I'd use these the next time around. .

    Absolutely!!!!
  16. Tire comparisons, Owner ratings chart. What's good and what's hype

    This is a major factor in my tire selections too. We get a lot of snow here (lake effect) so snow/ice traction are very important. That makes sense. You'll be hard pressed to find an all season or A/T tire that can compete with a dedicated snow/winter tire. The Blizzak is a great tire, but it...

    "Because you can't go for car rides when there's no wheel on the Jeep. This is a very serious matter. Repairs/Modifications must be completed immediately so I can have the wind in my fur again."
  18. Soft-Top v Hardtop

    Wow...... I have no words 😵
  19. Soft-Top v Hardtop

    It's not too bad, but it is a little more inconvenient. Instead of just taking out the 8 factory fasteners, you need to unbolt the sunrider too, so you'll have to do an extra 6 fasteners too. You can leave the sunrider on the Jeep without the hardtop and just bolt it back down after the top is...
  20. Custom cargo "security" enclosure for under $100

    I used box/case latches. You should be able to search for "Spring Loaded Case Latch" to get a pretty wide variety of options. I don't remember the specific ones I used, but they were the same as the ones that were on my instrument case when I was on the drum & bugle corp.
