  1. Results of my battery test

    Hey Vince: If you're running a dual AGM battery Wrangler did you disconnect the two batteries from each other before effecting that test? I bet you did. But if not, the results are a composite of both batteries and can fail to yield useful data on an individual battery's performance...
  2. QTDDTOT: Questions that don't deserve their own thread

    For those with automatics.....what can be said, good or bad, about highway driving in manual mode, and cruising in a gear slightly higher than that the automatic transmission might have assigned, in the interest of fuel savings? I imagine one could always downshift if the torque of the current...
  3. Any feedback on the Bestop Hardtop Roof Rack?

    @TrailJoy https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/roof-rack-woes-the-one-that-does-it-all.97650/post-2060766 did you ever get this rack and can help out Mickey @Bug Splats?
  4. How did your factory JL cage hold up in a flop/roll over?

    Hey Shawn: I'm curious. While I imagine this varies with each State, and while I am not certain that this is a route you will take, what steps are involved, if any, in getting a vehicle's title changed from the presumptively salvaged status this one currently has, to a "street legal/worthy"...
  5. Why was the Recon EV created?

    I wonder @Carlton if that demand will negatively affect not just Bronco, but Wrangler sales....
  6. Wiring Newbie (w/ Many Questions)

    ...plan to put on the circuit and potentially operate concurrently....:) Think of electric as being composed of electrons that are marchers in a parade. Voltage is the parade's speed, and amperage the width of a single marching row. It's not that simple in reality, especially for your home's...
  7. Why was the Recon EV created?

    Defend, refute, post your own reasons. I don't even know if the following is correct. But succinctly, I'm seeing the Recon serving two purposes: * To incorporate some Bronco styling and hopefully compete somewhat against it, and * For Stellantis to "skin their knees" on perfecting going...
  8. When is the JL Facelift coming?

    I agree. Enormous work and risk goes into changing the vehicle's visual appearance, particularly on the outside. No matter how many focus groups and reiterations and amounts of money are spent, designers always battle not only people's inherent aversion to change, but even the best of changes...
  9. Now I can never unsee it....

    I realize that true OCD can't simply be completely rationalized away--although logic can help. I also realize that many posters here have OCD that's manageable and often focused on very limited aspects of life, as well as posting here in mostly humor. That said: This is a tree bench. It's...
  10. Replaced both batteries 6 months ago...came out to a no start today.

    Bill: this may form part of a solution to the OPs issues. His ESS battery may have died having nothing to due with the dash camera; or even the dash camera was enough to push that battery over the edge. I would though like, and I think you'd agree, such steps to not be in isolation to making...
  11. Replaced both batteries 6 months ago...came out to a no start today.

    Hi Phil: I have a couple of theories. 1) Your 2018 has TSB 18-092-19. This is a dealer flash that is part of the later production 2018 JLs, and all those that came after, but not the earliest models of that freshman year of production. 2) Dual AGM battery JLs, like yours, will not crank if...
  12. Missing ESS Battery……. WTH??????

    Have a 2022 other than those with dual AGM batteries?
  13. Is this ok to bypass Aux?

    There's a good chance that you have the TSB 18-092-19 functionality in your 2018. If not, you can have the dealer download it for you. Reading ahead, unmarry your JL Tazer before bringing your JL to the dealer for any service, especially the "flash" to download this TSB. You can test if you...
  14. Auxiliary Battery

    Not only does it, as Shawn @chevymitchell illustrates, more to point, removing the F42 fuse causes a situation in which, provided your main battery has power, N1, will never not have power. To rephrase, with F42 disconnected, the only way for N1 to not have power is to disconnect your main...
  15. Is this ok to bypass Aux?

    @WranglerDad "While the car is running there’s current coming through the red positive wire. I have the Aux battery removed…" I'm assuming that you're referring the the cable that normally connects to the Aux battery's positive cable.... FWIW, I think if you put a multimeter up to an exposed...
  16. ANTIGRAVITY BATTERIES + dead Aux Battery jumping

    Tesla uses Lithium Ion battery chemistry, with deference to the fact that not all Lithium Ion batteries, as alluded to, are the same. Teslas also suffer from range decreases in cold, and the mechanisms that warm batteries up often come at the expense of robbing them of some of the very power...
  17. ANTIGRAVITY BATTERIES + dead Aux Battery jumping

    It would be irresponsible for me to criticize a Lithium based car battery, either Lithium Ion or Lithium Iron Phosphate without further knowledge on my part regarding what, if anything, the people at Antigravity have done to counter the following two phenomenon: Lithium batteries of either of...
  18. QTDDTOT: Questions that don't deserve their own thread

    My trickle charger says my dual AGM batteries (both replaced swapped 1/2022) are charged but my 3.6L is in battery protection mode with Voltages in the 13.X range. I'm thinking that my (no so) Intelligent Battery Sensor (IBS) might not be the worse for a reset--which I get involves...
  19. QTDDTOT: Questions that don't deserve their own thread

    Hi David: I don't know if trucker charging is trickle charging or alternator charging (or something else.) It's just as well because a comparison against both is only fair. I expect to spend about $200 on my solar panel, controller and vinyl/mounting tape to potentially install in on the...
