  1. Recommended KO2 Tire Pressure

    Not just for Jeeps, but the tire pressures in the door sticker by the manufacturer these days are set up mostly for fuel economy reasons. They are typically set up as the maximum pressure they can get away with, without a massive impact on ride and handling qualities. For most vehicles these...
  2. Rubicon Poll - Have you had problems with your locker sensors

    Did you notice much (metal) in the magnet or fluid drained? Heat is also an interesting theory. Maybe it is the heat that caused the plastic cover to allow oil in.
  3. Goodbye to my third Jeep (JLUR) bc fire!

    Why would they spend money to fix it, when the small minority of those who buy manual JLs, many represented here on this forum, keep on writing over and over that they'd buy the manual no matter what? Poor clutch engagement? Don't care, only buy manual. Horrible shifting action? Don't care...
  4. Buying a used JL today, opinions?

    I see the appeal of getting a Jeep that is already modded and ready to hit the trails - and this one seems to have been built right (which is rare frankly). But I would not own any JL's outside of factory or Mopar extended warranty. Also, we now have the XR, which is the right platform to...
  5. Video of Exploded 2021 6-Speed Manual Just made "Just Rolled In" Episode

    2021 JT 6MT - looks like it cracked all the way around - ouch. At the 1:48 mark in the video.
  6. Rubicon Poll - Have you had problems with your locker sensors

    That is hard to read, since you are one of the more experienced JL off-roaders here. I'm about to hit 17K miles, so far so good, but I'm about to do my second gear oil change. I keep on hoping that if I keep the metal shavings out I'll increase my chances - but that is just a hope and a prayer.
  7. Farout Jeep Wrangler announced as Rubicon Diesel final edition -- sad day today for the diesel crowd [UPDATED: with official press release]

    The "motor" itself may last long. But I hope you don't own your diesel outside of warranty. That hugely complex emissions control subsystem *will* fail. And it is prohibitively expensive to fix. If you want to drive it on the road long term, you will have to pass inspection. There is nothing...
  8. Rubicon Poll - Have you had problems with your locker sensors

    Well, Trailrecon just had the axle sensor issue on his new 392. Said dealer told him it will be weeks to get the sensor. See video below starting at 10:00
  9. Experienced my first Death Wobble

    99% chance that you didn't tighten the trackbar bolt that comes with the Fox 2.0 TS stabilizer/relocation bracket OR that you didn't tighten the clamp on the tierod tight enough. Have someone wiggle the steering wheel hard side to side and watch what is moving. If you want to know the 1%...
  10. Its been fun....take care real Jeepers

    It has been 95% resolved. By removing the manual transmission from most options (2.0, 3.0, 4xe, 392, XR, etc). I've said it before. Stop buying things that Jeep has shown not to want to sell. They don't want to sell manuals. Period. Accept it and move on. Buy a sports car with a great manual...
  11. Bronco Raptor vs Jeep JL, MB G-Wagon, & Land Rover Defender

    Bronco Raptor Main Mission: Force Jeep to get off its ass and give us a factory Wrangler with Dana 50 axles, 37" tires, high-end bypass shocks, strengthened frame and steering, good suspension travel (not that crappy 1" of up-travel on the XR) with proper road stability and that won't be a...
  12. What’d make you trade your JL for a new one...?

    Why would Jeep do that? The LJ existed (stop gap) because, at the time, Jeep did not have a 4 door Wrangler and they had hit the sales limit without more rear-seat/cargo space. Since the JK Jeep fixed it the right way by offering a 4-door for those who actually needed more passenger/cargo room...
  13. Any Updates on JLR 20th Anniversary Edition

    Exactly why the Bronco is important for me. I have no interest in buying a Bronco, mostly because I belong to an awesome Jeep club, and find the Wrangler very easy to work on and modify. I do hope that the Bronco continues to be a success, because that is the only way Stelantis/Jeep are going...
  14. Any Updates on JLR 20th Anniversary Edition

    LOL. You do know that MotorTrend owns FourWheeler Magazine, and the review above is x-linked to FourWheeler, right? In any event, the reviews are everywhere. Feel free to go to your "go-to-sources", they are all saying the same thing. I hope it does not trigger you too much. Not sure why some...
  15. Any Updates on JLR 20th Anniversary Edition

    It completely outflexes the Rubicon XR, which aparently only has 1" of up-travel. The Bronco has 13" front, 14" rear travel. That is a lot. In any event, it is irrelevant what you think, or even reality, the press has spoken and crowned the Bronco as the new king, the new top do, the new boss...
  16. Any Updates on JLR 20th Anniversary Edition

    Well, I think Jeep will have to respond to the Bronco Raptor, now that (today) the press embargo for Bronco Raptor reviews was lifted and the reviews from the press are glowing. Calling the Bronco Raptor the most capable off-road vehicle ever built..... Jeep, your move!
  17. Jeep nightmare!

    OP, given that you have researched and seen the other related owner posts here (likely saw mine too), you know that those messages are all related to the high speed CAN BUS C messages being corrupted. It is a thankless job, but unfortunately the only way to fix it is to find the harness or...
  18. “You'll Almost Have to Buy an Electric Vehicle if Climate Bill Passes”

    People keep repeating this stuff, but it is not true. Take a Tesla Model S Plaid. About 5,000 lbs. Show me another ICE sedan that seats 5 people, has as much cargo space as the Model S (remember front and rear trunks) and can accelerate to 60MPH in under 2 seconds that weighs less. You can't...
  19. Hood Vents - my own personal test: engine bay temperature stats

    C7-Z51 (not Z06) I could do 3-5 hot laps before the tranny and engine oil got to 300 and the computers started flashing warnings and pulling power. Loved the car, but I track often and it was not fun. Camaro 1LE same engine never had a problem - that huge, ugly front, 13 separate heat...
