  1. Stellantis Prepares US Dealerships for EV / Electric Future. Goal: 50% of US Sales to be BEV by End of Decade

    Kind of like GM's EV1 project and those that tried to follow?
  2. Stellantis Prepares US Dealerships for EV / Electric Future. Goal: 50% of US Sales to be BEV by End of Decade

    Electric motors do not have any conversion of energy issue like an internal combustion engine which allows instant torque/power to the output. Instant get up and go.
  3. Stellantis Prepares US Dealerships for EV / Electric Future. Goal: 50% of US Sales to be BEV by End of Decade

    The problem with EVs is storage/degradation of power - battery tech is just not ready for a prime time debut. Electric vehicles have been around for quite some time now, but no one has been able to produce storage containment suitable for what is needed to make EVs comparable to attributes of an...
  4. Fellow Sport trim owners; what do you store in your "pleb holes?"

    Too awkward a place, and I would forget it. Most definitely a for sure thing... I would forget it. I get the idea, though.
  5. Fellow Sport trim owners; what do you store in your "pleb holes?"

    Yeah, we just get a single packet ketchup cubby. If it falls out... it goes to the passenger floorboard. Not a good scenario! Showing it twice for your double take pleasure.
  6. Best Option You Did Not Take

    Physical labor is something you enjoy? Cavemen. You get less weight with manual operation too. There is a GVWR - power regulator & lock solenoid = extra cans of beer in cooler calculation somewhere in this decision I bet. Those of us who are more refined wrestle around with something heavier...
  7. I Live In America's Off-Road MECCA!

    Can us underprivileged wheelers come visit? I have a tent... can bring brisket. If it helps, I like your color choice.
  8. I Live In America's Off-Road MECCA!

    Try not to sweat it too much. You never know if there may be something that changes your outlook and priorities for the better when moving to a new place. Most likely, in ways you hadn't thought about. I grew up in Florida, the "mecca" for all things water related. Scuba diving is my passion...
  9. I Live In America's Off-Road MECCA!

    When I first uploaded On X I thought it was broken - no green lines anywhere close. Arkansas looks nice... for a ten hour trip. Stuck with the fun mud parks around here. Thank goodness I have friends and family with cool places to play. Still a five hour trip to get there, though. Texas...

  11. What trim off roads the most!?

    In the context of; in the Jeep community some believe having all the "best" options packages compared to lesser based models gives them a hierarchy, of such. Some type of weird, human nature, psychological mumbo-jumbo, or whatnot. You have a Jon Boat... do you really need a bass boat? Some...
  12. What trim off roads the most!?

    Yeah, it is a status symbol for a lot of people. Too bad they miss out on a really cool experience.
  13. What trim off roads the most!?

    Agreed. I guess I'm the oddball. My last trail bucket was a 2001 Sahara, and now I'm rolling in a Rubicon. Creature comforts, and some oem parts upgrades were important - financial situation allowed, so... It is interesting, all past Wranglers I've owned were modified immediately, but I have...
  14. Things you DON’T need to worry about when owning a JL

    I need to look into this accessory.
  15. Things you DON’T need to worry about when owning a JL

    I think I missed the part about this feature in the owner's manual.
  16. Just put a deposit on the longest named jeep ever.

    Keep it over at motomadness.com, please. If I didn't know any better I would be asking you what type of racing do you do, and is it bigger than 500cc. It is really cool that Jeep offers so much selection on options and packages. They know the torture and excitement they put us through with...
  17. Things you DON’T need to worry about when owning a JL

    Jeeps are off road vehicles that can be driven on the road. Most anything else is a road vehicle that only some can be driven off road. There is a difference. Urban obstacles: curb, overpass embankment, ditches, neighbor's fence... piece of cake. Also, you can do this with no top/doors, so a...
  18. Things you DON’T need to worry about when owning a JL

    Curbs. Small shrubs. Children's riding toys. Texas flooding... Very little worry here.
  19. 6cyl manual JL driver gets a 4cyl turbo auto loaner......

    Well, I thought my 2.0Little turbo was good, but from reading through the 28th thread of six vs. four, I now think it is great. Maybe even the best option. At least this isn't a two vs. four door thread... those four door people can get really upset when they realize two extra is two too many...
  20. 6cyl manual JL driver gets a 4cyl turbo auto loaner......

    No idea. When the V boys and girls dump on the little 2.0L they are really just giving an attestation of jealousy. The hairdryer noise, and being able to say turbo in everyday conversation... who can resist that? Us turbo Jeepers understand their denial of the 2.0L being the best option... we...
