  1. Liters or Cubic Inches?

    44 Magnum, 45 Long Colt. A bit off topic, but I'm always amazed when folks talk about how powerful the 44 Magnum is, like it's some great new achievement in pistol caliber, when the 45 Long Colt has nearly identical power, and was developed back in the late 1800's. Best, -Tim
  2. And you thought your setup was aggressive....

    Congrats on the proposal. Iceland is on the bucket list. Best, -Tim
  3. Drill bit in tire

    Years ago we had an issue with a rear tire on an SUV. It got three flats in a little over two weeks. Talking with the service manager at the tire dealer, he asked if there was construction on the route I take to and from work. There was. But I couldn't understand why it was always the back tire...
  4. Wax for Rubicon, Islander, Moab, hood with factory decals

    For years I've been seeing labels on car waxes that say don't use on/over decals. The factory decals on JL Rubicons, Islanders, Moabs, etc. are not clear coated, so the vinyl (or whatever they are made of) is exposed to the elements. What do you folks, who have these decals, use when you are...
  5. What is the top speed?

    2019, 2-Door, Sport-S, 3.6 with 8 speed auto, 105 mph chasing down a truck on the highway. Still had more in it. Best, -Tim
  6. I saw a GINORMOUS GRAPE hurling down the highway in NY.....

    The few I've seen in the wild have looked like this. To me it's a Purply-Pink, but still pretty much Pink. It is eye catching, but not something I'd want for myself. Best, -Tim
  7. Where do the little things go???

    Thanks. I looked there, at the seat track. I slid the seat all the way back, and searched with a flashlight, then slid the seat all the way forward, and searched with a flashlight, and couldn't find anything. But there seems to be a section of the seat track that is always covered, whether the...
  8. Where do the little things go???

    Thanks for the responses. Well I took the console out, and most of the driver side carpeting, and nothing. Not under there. I got no idea what the heck happened to it. Really a pisser. If anyone has any other ideas, I'd love to hear them. Best, -Tim
  9. Where do the little things go???

    Had, what for me, is a catastrophe with our 2019 Wrangler 2-door. I had a SDXC Memory Card with extremely important pictures on it, drop down between the drivers seat and the console (8-Speed Auto). And I can't, for the life of me, find it. I've slid the seat all the way forward, taken out the...
  10. What could go wrong at an oil change? You could get sued!

    I know first hand of a case in Ohio where a motorcycle rider was hit by a car and seriously injured. The car driver had no insurance, so the motorcycle rider found a scumbag lawyer that helped him sue the motorcyclist's own employer for three million dollars, and it was cheaper for his employer...
  11. 8 speed auto in 22' JL was impressive

    After 43 years driving manual transmission, my left knee was really causing me problems. Doc said make a choice, knee replacement surgery or drive an automatic. Wasn't happy about it, but decided to test drive a JL with the 8 Speed, and after that, it was an easy choice. I can't find anything to...
  12. Jeep Thongs...

    As a cancer survivor, this get's my 100% approval. Bravo. Thanks for posting RemusPaPa. Best, -Tim
  13. 2 Door Exclusive JL Parts

    We've got the ROAM's on our 2019 JL 2-Door and I like them a lot. Not sure if ROAM is still in business, but if they are, highly recommend their 2-Door rock rails. Best, -Tim
  14. The Luddite Club aka Poverty Pack

    Bought my first new vehicle in 1976. Every new vehicle I bought for the next 43 years fell into your category of No Power Windows, Manual Transmission, No Power Locks, and NO AIR CONDITIONING. When we bought our 2019 Wrangler, I knew it would be my "retirement" vehicle and wanted a few...
  15. Pull the trigger on a JL Wrangler or avoid them?

    Our 2019 2-Door Sport S has been great. Bought it new, have never had a problem with it on the highway. Ours is the 3.6 with 8 Speed Automatic. Before we bought it I drove a stock Sport, and would have been happy with that but the window crank on the driver side hit me right in the left knee...
  16. Frame Color is Army Green

    Our 2019 frame is jet black, but then again so is our 2019. Never seen a Wrangler frame painted any color but black. Best, -Tim
  17. EJS 2022: Jeep Rubicon 20th Anniversary Concept

    Would love to have that hard top with the rear quarter windows and the rear window coming off without removing the top. That's cool. Best, -Tim
  18. Reign in the forecast?

    Snazzberry is gorgeous! Especially when it's clean in the early morning sunshine. Best, -Tim
  19. Bronco to Wrangler

    My son is home from college on spring break and we were out running errands yesterday. Hit a parking lot where there was a new Bronco parked. I suggested we go over and look at it (he's not been around to hear my negative reviews) and as we walked up to it his first words were, "That really is...
  20. This is how the Jeep craze started. Great Grandfather to the JL.

    I remember as a kid growing up in the 1960's, in the back of magazines (like Hot Rod, and comic books) there were ads selling Army Surplus Jeeps for like $50. My family talked about buying one but never actually got around to it. Would have been cool. Might have been a scam, but there probably...
