  1. RockHard 4x4 Tire Carrier and Brace Review/tips.

    After getting a Metalcloak Rear bumper I found out my tire wouldn’t clear the bumper and I couldn’t close my tailgate. I needed the tire moved out about a half inch. This led me to the @ROCK HARD 4X4 brace and carrier. My main thing was I wanted the rubber isolators to still stabilize the...
  2. An ode to Jeep Cares

    FCA isn't typically known for their reliability and my jeep was my dream car for my midlife crisis. I was definitely concerned with reliability and dealing with the dealerships. My Jeep has been solid until late summer when the battery was always charging (2020 JLUR 3.6M). Start stop never...
  3. GMRS questions.

    I’m new to GMRS. Have my license and a midland MXT 275. What is the call button on the radio? what is a “call alert tone” that I can set in the menu? THANKS!
  4. Backspacing and the stock tire carrier

    Howdy all. I had a question and what better community to ask. So I have an @ROCK HARD 4X4 tire relocation bracket. It uses the stock tire carrier and move the gate isolators to the relocation bracket so they can move in/out. So I guess my question is how does this all work with...
  5. Anyone install Rock Hard 4x4 Braces?

    So I’m trying to install @ROCK HARD 4X4 braces. It’s been a nightmare. The bolts were initially completely wrong. They were nice and overnighted new bolts. Those were still wrong but more right. The braces attach with 10x1.5x50mm bolts. These use a 17mm socket head. They fit fine but the...
  6. Battery forever charging.

    3.6M JLUR with hd towing and accessory button package. So start stop hasn’t worked in like 6 months. The auxiliary buttons also tend to die if I’m parked a day or two but come back after about 5mins of driving. The dealership replaced the battery and battery sensor. Nothing. Goes back in...
  7. Winches and shackles and such.

    Been a while since I posted and could use some collective brains. I recently installed the @Metalcloak front and rear bumpers and a Smittybuilt Gen 3 winch. The rear I did myself. The front and winch I had done. Issues I’ve run into. 1. The rear bumper sticks out just far enough the spare...
  8. Winch Cover for Gen 3 XRC

    So I’m getting a synthetic line winch in a month and know it’s best to keep the line covered and protected. I’m in a garage 99% of the time. Do I need a cover? If so anyone have suggestions? I think the winch looks great no cover but road grime, salt, etc here in Ohio I don’t want to tear it...
  9. MetalCloak plate relocation. Am I asking too much.

    So I picked up the rear bumper and relocation kit during their last sale. I really liked the look of both. the bumper seems solid. The instructions make no mention of the backup sensors (though there are cutouts for them) and no mention of what to do with the factory license plate light. I...
  10. DIY Tire Rotation Question.

    Doing my first oil change and tire rotation. Oil change I’m fine with. Tire rotation I’m curious how folks do it considering the suspension travel. I have a JLUR. Is the stock jack enough to get the wheel off the ground? Do people jack stand the whole car up or do a wheel at a time? I...
  11. Where to buy extended warranty...

    Title says it. Haven’t seen an update on where the best prices are in a while. Should clarify the mopar one.
  12. The Great Pumpkin.

    Whelp. My cosmetics are done. Bumpers and winch eventually. Looking forward to hitting some trails in the spring. My kid picked out the theme. Helsiel did the artwork as the original clips from the movie were too low res to blow up. If anyone needs any custom artwork contact her on her Etsy...
  13. Sky One Touch Maintenance.

    Apologies if there are threads on this. I searched and each one spiraled into comments on whether to buy one rather than how to maintain it. I have one and couldn’t find any official jeep info on maintaining it. I don’t think Besttop provides the soft top for the sky one touch...

  15. Rock Slide Engineering Step Slides Manual Transmission

  16. Manual Transmissions have no Firewall Pass Through!

    PSA. If you’re getting a manual realize that the clutch occupies the driver side firewall pass through. There is no pass through on the manual Jeeps. GET THE HD ELECTRICAL GROUP! This will give you: 2x40amp lines 2x15amp lines 2x10amp lines Inside the cab. This is a life saver if you...
  17. HD Electric Switches, wires, and fuses.

    I haven’t seen this all in one place so here goes... If you have the HD electric group you have 4 interior switches. These can be set to power with ignition or battery (aka all the time) and either as a toggle for power on/off or press and hold for power. There are two wire bundles. One in...
  18. Lost power on aux switch. Thoughts?

    So I installed rock slide engineering step slides using the direct to battery line inside the cab from the aux package. The slide wiring has a 20amp fuse in line and a switch so figured direct was the way to go (supppsed to be directly attached to the battery anyway). it worked for a day but...
  19. Body bolts and how not to break them.

    Just an update for folks doing installs where you have to loosen body bolts. There are many horror stories on the forum of broken bolts due to the loctite. I’d also say due to over torquing at the factory (supposed to be 80ft-lbs. I used the mini ductor 2 induction bolt heater. Loctite...
