  1. Multiple Fatality Rollover in Gladiator - Near Ouray

    Imogene and Black Bear are technically easy trails, I did both in a stock Commander on the factory street tires. I was by myself, no spotter, zero issues, not having to worry much about line choices. Truly the most difficult part is dodging the rental jeeps. Where these trails can be tough...
  2. Another dead pedal thread?!?!

    It's a friction thing, so I suspect it may loosen with usage, but so far I haven't had to tighten mine up at all. It'd be easy enough to tighten that one bolt when, or if, it backs out a little.
  3. Another dead pedal thread?!?!

    Just don't crash and it won't be an issue.
  4. What did you do to your 2dr today?

    Is that the TFL crew?
  5. Why are roof-top tents so popular?

    Seems to me it depends on how you camp. My camping style is to get as far away from roads/trails/people as possible, setup camp then leave to go explore the area for a few days. I am only truly able to do this a few weekends out of the year. For my style I don't see how a tent mounted to the...
  6. How are you securing your cargo?

    Jeep/Mopar has the "Trail Rail" system. I know nothing about it other than it exists, but perhaps that can provide you with more flexible tie down points that meet your needs.
  7. Another dead pedal thread?!?!

    I'm using the quadratec pedal https://www.quadratec.com/p/quadratec/driver-side-dead-pedal-wrangler-jl-gladiator-jt It took a very long time for me to get it. I forget the count now but it was something like 6+ months, but it eventually did arrive. Seems like a solid product, easy install, and...
  8. Let's talk about air compressors and recovery gears

    For years I used a cheap single pump air compressor for my Jeeps. I bought it at pepboys on sale for something like $40 I believe in 2003, it's red and came with a yellow hose. My intention was always to replace it when it failed. It is still working today. It looks very similar to this this...
  9. Multiple Fatality Rollover in Gladiator - Near Ouray

    Parking brake. Jeep Gladiators, and I'd wager every passenger vehicle for sale in the US today, do not have an emergency brake. The parking brake does not have enough force to bring the vehicle to a stop on its own, it is only engineered to hold a parked vehicle in place. Once you start adding...
  10. Freedom panels without the rest of the hard top?

    Works just fine on my 2 door JL. Been at highway speeds (80mph ish) in wind without an issue. The only issue I had was on the passenger side panel, the rear latch is a bit loose. So on washboard roads and anyplace it can vibrate like that the latch can work itself open. There's probably a proper...
  11. 13.4 Low Voltage Warning

    It's not necessarily accurate to say that a battery needs to be replaced just with what Daltongang had stated in this thread. Maybe you have more information than I do, but without knowing how the Jeep is driven the "battery charging" message may be accurate without any need for concern. I...
  12. Cold Air intake. Hay or Nay?

    Did they ever fix the issue of the tube collapsing on these?
  13. Top accessories when top down and doors off

    Plenty fine in headwinds, or tailwinds, or moderate sidewind even. But on I-25 going across WY it can be pretty rough. I don't put them in all the time, but I always have them available. Started doing it when riding motorcycles, just found a set of ear plugs in underneath the helmet greatly...
  14. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    I'm curious to know more about how you did this. From the one photo, I think I like it.
  15. Top accessories when top down and doors off

    A thing I keep in my Jeep for top off and doors off driving that I haven't seen mentioned is ear plugs. Nothing fancy, just some cheap foam ear plugs. Sometimes, even driving at reasonable speeds, the wind in the ear can be brutal. A foam ear plug helps a lot. I keep a small handful in a plastic...
  16. Jerry cans instead of a spare tire

    I know this look is not popular, and I have no idea bout the quality of the product either, but I think if I were going to routinely carry extra fuel I'd get the front fender mount. Just seems to me that's where extra fuel ought to be and you can mount an actual jerry can rather than the rotopax...
  17. Car registration

    Easiest, and probably cheapest, way to do this is to form an LLC in Montana to establish "residence" in the state. Your LLC then purchases and registers the Jeep. This can be done from anywhere within the US, maybe overseas as well but I've never chased that around. The big advantage of using...
  18. How cool is Florida. New plates coming out. Notice its not a Bronco.

    These plates are used for fund raising for any kind of various causes. I don't really know what goes into it but that terrible plate is the only one I know of to support off road access issues. Now it's only like $20-$30 going to the organization, so it's probably not the make or break for the...
  19. Tinted windows- yay or nay?

    I don't tint the windows in a Jeep. I could see maybe doing the windows on the hardtop if they didn't come factory tinted, but not the fronts. My reasoning is I don't like it reducing my visibility when on a trail. Yes I can just lower the window, or in the summer the doors tend to be off...
  20. How cool is Florida. New plates coming out. Notice its not a Bronco.

    That looks much better than the Montana plate that supports multiuse trails. I can't do any better myself, but I really do wish it was a cool design like FL's so I could be proud to have it on my vehicles.
