  1. Is my Sway Bar Actuator (Factory) Installed Incorrectly?

    Grimm's instructions were among the best I've seen for aftermarket equipment. I got an email from them right after running into the issue which explained it and noted that they had added it to their instructions - good on Grimm for their quick response and attention to detail! 👍
  2. Is my Sway Bar Actuator (Factory) Installed Incorrectly?

    Thanks for the picture and confirmation. I'm using the Grimm winch plate. Your (Northridge) install video was very helpful in knowing what to expect - thanks!
  3. Is my Sway Bar Actuator (Factory) Installed Incorrectly?

    That would be me :-) At least attempting to put in the winch tray. New vehicle, so the first time it's been apart was this afternoon for installation of the tray and winch. I re-clocked the actuator to what appears to be the normal factory position. I hadn't been aware that the mechanism...
  4. Is my Sway Bar Actuator (Factory) Installed Incorrectly?

    Based on this, I rotated it back to where I think it is supposed to be, now matching the picture from Grimm. Hopefully no interference issues with the front factory skid plate, will find out that answer in the morning... You can read more about it here...
  5. Is my Sway Bar Actuator (Factory) Installed Incorrectly?

    Trying to install a Grimm winch plate - which looks great by the way, but it won't fit as it interferes with the sway bar disconnect actuator. I've contacted Grimm and Northridge (retailer) and they are investigating but do not know of any issues with fitment on the 392. Anyone able to take a...
  6. Has anyone run regular octane gas in their 392?

    Idaho BDR - post trip follow-up: TLDR: Brought 92 and mixed with local 87 - no problems. Thanks all for the wide range of inputs on detonation issues - a lot of good info. Turns out on the Idaho BDR there are 100's of miles with nothing but 87 octane available. And then often only from a...
  7. Extended idle time

    The thermostat in my 392 opens at around 203F. Running down the highway winter or summer that's where it sits. Once I get off-road low and slow, the coolant temperature climbs. I hear the fan start at around 228F. It usually runs until the temp is back down to under 210F. The fan is...
  8. Has anyone run regular octane gas in their 392?

    Some vehicles I've had say "Premium fuel recommended; lower octane fuel may reduce engine performance". This sounds like changing the ignition mapping if it detects detonation. The 392 manual says "Use of gasoline with an octane number lower than recommended octane can cause engine failure and...
  9. Has anyone run regular octane gas in their 392?

    Burgdorf Idaho. I can drive off-route some distance to get premium, but traveling with a group makes that side trip a logistical problem.
  10. Has anyone run regular octane gas in their 392?

    I think I'll do exactly this combination - bring fuel - but make it race fuel. Allows me to carry less fuel and still satisfy the octane requirements - Thanks! LF
  11. Has anyone run regular octane gas in their 392?

    Heading out on an extended trip to the boondocks with the 392 in a couple weeks and in one area there is no premium gasoline available. Near as I can tell the 392 does not have a detonation sensor and hence does not adjust the ignition mapping based on octane (please correct me if that is...
  12. Rockslide Engineering Steps Gen 3

    I ran the wires up near the firewall, which on my 392 is between the battery and the fender. A picture from the top, the thick red wire with the splice headed downward is the RSE power wire. The ground wire I attached to the ground stud near the bottom of the picture. A view up from the...
  13. Inverters?

    First hand experience ^^^^^ wins the day 👍
  14. In Mexico need advice on over heating

    @AZ-Matt Check your dipstick too. Over-full may mean coolant leaked into the oil, most commonly from a blown head gasket. If it is over-full, loosen the oil drain plug just until it drips and check if its coolant (it goes to the bottom). If that's ok, run it a bit, then check the dipstick...
  15. This may sound like a dumb question but - can I take my JLURXR through an automatic car wash???

    I used Gates 7/64" vacuum line tubing from the local auto parts store. I'd figure a little over 5' per fender. Pulls tight and wedges between the fender flare and the body at each end.
  16. Inverters?

    I'd suggest some caution in going down that path as using the vehicle battery and charging system to run heating appliances (i.e. high wattage) creates some electrical risk to your vehicle. Some of the smaller George Foreman grills draw around 1200W. At 12V and a typical inverter efficiency of...
  17. Won't start at 15% grade under 1/4 tank

    I've not laid hands on the fuel pump assembly for a JL, but did on my last Jeep. The pump assembly was designed to run with minimal fuel in the tank and to allow operation on a slope for at least a limited time. It was clever, solved low fuel start/run issues and addressed the concern over...
  18. New 392 in the shop

    Ha, LOL, that would be a good explanation :) But its approaching it's second oil change, I did get near the 7-1/2 qts out on the first oil change, and its just off the full mark now so that doesn't appear to be it. I wonder if there's a chance that some can get spilled on the initial engine...
  19. New 392 in the shop

    So here's something to ponder... I picked up a 392 in October. Got it home, a week later I'm underneath to do some measurements. Crap, there's drops of what looks like engine oil hanging on the front edge of the bell housing. Brand new, and I have to have it ripped apart to find a small...
  20. Pretension synthetic rope in neutral but wheels were locked/braked

    Everything goes back to normal once you get back in the seat and move the shifter. Might have to momentarily move to park, I can't remember. An auto-park message probably showed up on your dash but that might have happened after you got out. T-case in neutral (instead) also does the job Or...
