  1. Smittybilt Gen 3 winch question.

    Looking at the new Gen 3 winches, and though I am not a fan of the new ray gun-inspired remote, most everything else about it is appealing. Except the x 1.75 price. My only worry is that nothing I see explicitly states that the control box is easily removable/relocatable. It does come with...
  2. Amazing discovery for camping in jeep! Or, the Lazy Man's platform.

    I have a Roll-a-cot that I use for "comfortable camping" It's great. Lightweight, easy setup, waterproof, firm, and the mesh back makes summer camping much, much more pleasant. Chopped a random 7" off the end and stuffed it into the jeep. It fits perfect! This changes everything! I was...
  3. Large Morryde side slide fits JLU cargo area

    For anyone interested, the large 37 x 21 side slide just fits inside a JLU: It's a double slide that holds 225lbs. It's a little bit off centre from the subwoofer, so you'd have to fiddle with mounting it a little. But it just clears the cubby lid width-wise, though it covers the end...
  4. Useful beginners' tools for the new jeep.

    I've learned a lot from this forum, and highly respect the mechanical/electrical/software-ical acumen of its members. Thank you all. (Well, the helpful ones at least) I've enjoyed being able to tinker with an automobile again, and throughly enjoy the "What have you done to your jeep today?"...
  5. Brake lines are 3/16", right?

    Sorry if this is a silly question, but I spent two days and at least the last ten(!) minutes googling, and couldn't get a straight answer. Couldnt find anything on the forums either. I've a 2020 Sahara with the larger rotors/pads, though that shouldn't matter. I was 90% sure that they are...
  6. Does anyone else's front USB ports do this since Uconnect update?

    Did the Uconnect update a couple of months ago change how the front USBs detect sources? Backgound: I've gone through three dash cameras in the past 1.5 years; one self-destructed, the next decided it didn't like cold weather after I left it in the jeep during an inexplicabe 12°F overnight at...
  7. Weboost cellular signal booster. Experience/Trade-offs?

    Who else uses a cellular signal booster? I've been using a Weboost Drive 4G-X signal booster for almost two years now, and was curious how they've been working for others. Despite the name, the company says it is 5G-ready. Seems to work on my 5G. Mine's on a switch so I only turn it on when...
  8. Cascadia solar controller whine/RF interference? Snake oil works?

    The mppt controller makes a tiny whine when charging the battery sometimes. It isn't that bothersome on its own, but my CB radio is picking it up on all channels, and it messes with the channel scan. Weirdly, GMRS wired in series with the CB to Aux 3 and chassis doesn't seem to pick up...
  9. Cascadia solar overheat. Relocation write-up.

    I moved the charge controller of the Cascadia Solar System into the cabin today, instead of leaving it in their recommended location here: It was over 85°F today. Took the solar panel on its maiden voyage. Coasted about on residential and dirt and gravel roads for a few hours at low...
  10. Cascadia Solar wiring. Excess Positive/negative, safe to coil/stack?

    High School science was a long time ago. Finally a nice, warm day here, so finished installing the panel. Was wondering if the feed lines going to the battery are safe to place this way on top of each other: They are coils made from looping the excess wire from the middle. The ties around...
  11. Easy door detent pulling.

    So I was just happily wiring some radios into the jeep, and had all the doors and tailgate open as I was going in and out. Unfortunately, today was the one day of the year that my father decided to do yardwork, and he came out off the garage blowing an enormous green, gritty, cloud of pollen...
  12. Fender mirror in lieu of side mirror compliance?

    So I normally use side mirrors attached to Mopar cowl mounts if I have doors off, but they live there full time, as I like having them handy: But the MORryde jerry can mounts I installed (as seen above and below) interfere with them a bit: They still work if I have no jerry cans, with...
  13. Wiring CB and GMRS together on Aux 3?

    Trying to clear out the beginings of a rat's nest: Is there any reason why I couldn't put a T-tap from the GMRS into the CB wiring? I've switched to a stock President McKinley, it is wired to Aux3 and grounded to the chassis in the passenger-side footwell. It has a 6 amp fuse, but is...
  14. Rockslide Rotopax mount (slight) anti-theft.

    If the rotopax are on and I'm in a parking lot, they have a bike lock, but in case anyone is worried about the whole dumb, heavy, ratchet strap assembly: If you have the plastic bumper, (you probably do, if you're using this contraption) and you put the ratchet on in this position, it is...
  15. 6-pin CB mic extension?

    Switched to a President McKinley CB a month or so ago, and it's been great so far. Trying to reorganize/regroup wires and mounting locations for a big trip, and I haven't been able to find any aftermarket parts for the 6-pin mic. Specifically searching for an extension; I want to reroute the...
  16. Rear Rokblokz Vs. Sahara bumper

    Hoped they would fit normally, but no such luck, so here we are. This post will allow you to install Rokblokz on a 2020 Sahara, or other models with the same extended bumper trim. It took maybe an hour? The majority to figure out the first one, but the second was quick. Two beers, a...
  17. Rokblokz vs. 2020 Sahara.

    Was waiting for some paint to dry today, so decided to install the mudflaps I had sitting around. Thought it would be a fun, easy, one-beer job for the fronts, but I was wrong. I hope that this will help anyone else trying to do the same in the future. Rokblokz makes special provisions for...
  18. Another benefit of a white Wrangler. (Trigger warning?)

    The paint matches the interior fiberglass pretty well, so when a nice Spring day finally arrives, and you drop a Freedom Panel on the ground, you don't have to cry quite as hard. (You can still cry a little bit though) I wasn't looking forward to depositing the free lifetime supply of...
  19. Small(er) CB!

    I posted a short while ago asking for recommendations on a good, full-featured, small CB radio. I'd like to thank all everyone that still still uses CB and offered recommendations, all four of you, and would like to say that I listened to nothing you said and bought a President McKinley...
  20. Any good, small CB radios?

    Howdy all, just checking in to see of there's anything new worth looking into in terms of a good, small, CB set. Currently using a stock Cobra 29Lx, and love it, except for its gargantuan size, as the radio itself somewhat horns in on the namesake Little Dog's sleeping area. Passengers...
