    My wife and I are eyeballing the motorhome lifestyle for vacations within the next year or so. Definitely going to aim for a diesel pusher and will be dealing with air brakes and crossing the 26,000 pound threshold. What am I facing here in North Carolina as far as air brake endorsements and...
  2. Bubbling Paint Issues Round 3

    So for three years in a row I've had these bubbles in the paint near the door hinges repaired. Also has the same exact problem on the leading edge of the hood and both passenger door edges. This week I inspected these same areas and find the same issues again near 4 door hinges and the...
  3. Frame Color is Army Green

    I was underneath my Jeep recently and was impressed when I noticed the dark green paint on the frame. I had always that it was just black. I just never had taken a good look at the frame before with a flashlight. So I'm assuming this must be an Easter egg since it looks to be the old army...
  4. Mickey Thompson Tire Back Order

    I've recently ordered 5 Mickey Thompson Baja Boss M/T tires through a local tire shop. They located 4 right away and they are currently at the shop waiting to be installed on Thursday. The 5th tire is proving to be elusive and the tire shop called me to explain the problem. He had searched...
  5. Upgrade from All Terrain to M/T Tires?

    My BFG KO2s are not worn out but I'm ready to go to a more aggressive tire on My JLUR. KO2s have been a smooth tire and all, but never liked how they tended to hydroplane vs the M/T tires I had on my previous 2016 JKUR that never had that issue. Not driving too fast, KO2s just easily get loose...

  7. Jeep Ride on For My Grandson

    I got this Jeep Wrangler for my three year old grandson for Christmas. So I took him over to a local park for some fun with it. A passerby told him that's a really nice car he has.

  9. Need Help With Differential Oil Type for Dana 44 M210 and M220 Tru-Lok Axles

    I looked around for information on which oil I should be using, but I got lost in the information overload. My Rubicon has a Dana M210 Wide Front Axle and a Dana M220 Wide Rear Axle. Both are Tru-Lok too and I'm not even sure what that really means. All factory stock axles and gears. So far no...
  10. Anyone Order from Pixeldecals Lately?

    Ordered some vent decals on July 30th and no status change since then. Beginning to feel like I've been taken. Understandably the order stated about 2 weeks, but it's coming up on 4 weeks very soon. Requested an update twice and the response is basically automated showing status ordered. I...
  11. So I Hurt Duck Duck Jeeps Feelings

    Yes, I did. It was easy though. A member posted about how all Jeep owners are like a family and the tradition and all that inclusiveness stuff no matter what Jeep they drive. Well I added a little joke in there about except yellow Jeeps since I really just don't like a yellow vehicle period...

    As most are aware our Wranglers have bubbling paint issues at door hinges, hood hinges and hood and door edges. Of course mine has had three different places.

  15. Anyone using a Hobart MIG Welder?

    I'm finally ready to switch from my flux core wire welder to a MIG, but I want one made in the USA and still not too pricey. I found a Hobart 190 MIG which is made in the USA and actually has some Miller sourced pieces used in it. Although I've been welding for 30+ years and have used many...

    I just received these mirrors today and haven't had a chance to take doors off and do a test run with them since its been raining here in NC.

  18. How To Put Disabled Jeep in Neutral

    This is not a current issue with my Jeep but it could be for any of us. I recently tested this and if your Jeep will not start or the electrical system is malfunctioning such as a dead battery or whatever, I don't see any way out of park and into neutral. I've tried many ways and each one fails...
