  1. How would you handle this with a shop?

    Issues 3 and 4 I can see being a problem, and I would talk it over with the shop and see if you guys can come to a resolution. Especially with the new winch being damaged. 2 can be fixed with rubbing alcohol, it's a bit annoying they left the marks in the first place, but it's just easier to...
  2. Any reason not to get this aftermarket hood? EDIT- FOUND THE PERFECT HOOD

    That looks really sweet! I love the fact that it's steel vs fiberglass, much better chance if it fitting correctly. I wonder if the vents are the same as the Rubicon. If they are, you can use the Valkyrie off road vents if you wanted. $1200 painted with $150 shipping isn't bad at all! Hardest...
  3. Somebody Flipped longways over the edge, saved by a vertical catch by some trees

    Yikes, that looks pretty gnarly, wouldn't have wanted to be in there when that happened.
  4. Popped my Elk cherry

    Sure, why not. So about a month after getting my new to me Gladiator, I decided to try those fancy full service car washes for the price of $35 buckaroos. You get a valet to drive you vehicle through the wash, they clean the whole interior, a quick wax with a polishing wheel, and you get to...
  5. Popped my Elk cherry

    That's a bummer dude! Well now you can try making lemonade from lemons at least. See if you can upgrade to an aftermarket bumper/hood/Rubicon hood. The shop I was sent to after someone rear ended me in the car wash was nice enough to let me pick a rear bumper from a local vendor. Just had to...
  6. BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO3 tires coming soon

    37' Yokohama Geolanders checking in! My favorite tire so far, feel just as good as my Toyo's did, but lighter. Also pretty quiet for a MT.
  7. Any reason not to get this aftermarket hood? EDIT- FOUND THE PERFECT HOOD

    I was actually very tempted to go this route, I was looking at this exact same hood but getting fiberglass to fit nicely is a nightmare. Then it needs paint. I'm also particularly picky when it comes to mods as I want them as clean looking as possible, so I would want to put my hood liner and...
  8. Why would companies cater to the wonko before wranglers🤬

    Sucks the IAG's aren't available for the Jeeps, they're MUCH more competitive on price. AR Industries want's 500 bucks for just TWO of these, that's just flat out crazy, you can buy some brands of sliders for that price! If you need four, you can just buy some Rockhard sliders and a pack of...
  9. Keep Me Sane: Death Wobble Has Me Considering Selling

    Like other folks have said, worn/loose components are the culprit. Anyone that says that it's normal for Jeeps to have death wobble are only fooling themselves. The spot that I always check first, track bar, that will cause death wobble every time if it's loose or the bushings are worn out...
  10. Charouleau Gap - IMPASSABLE!

    Sounds like Type 2 rated fun, bordering on Type 3...
  11. Hood locks with key or locking hood

    +1 for Rugged Ridge here.
  12. 2dr rear seating options

    Wonder if you could retrofit a Gladiator rear seat, since it's already set up in a 60/40 config, you just use the one side you want.
  13. What's the best cheap Amazon accessory you've bought?

    Useful? Well ... no ... it actually makes one problem worse, but I definitely like it.
  14. Handy Flag Kit Install/Review

    Hi guys, I've wandered over from our extra long wheelbase sister forum and I just wanted to share a neat bit of kit I found, via a copy pasta special (These pictures are a bit out of date btw, my Jeep looks quite a bit different now): TLDR: So for anyone out there who wants a safety flag kit...
  15. A Near Miss (Or Hit, But Not Serious)

    Glad she owned up to it, and a nice bonus that there was no damage. Like others have said, she's a stand up individual. I haven't had that kind of luck, I've been hit in a parking lot twice, and rear-ended at a stop light, and on all three occasions, the driver took off.
  16. Top mistakes since buying your Jeep

    Sorry, I meant that the overall amount I've put in, paid 43 TTL for my Sport, my dad got his JTR for 53 TTL (told him he stole that truck!) His JTR only needed a winch, it came with the lift, wheel/tires, and steel bumpers. Fully optioned minus the active safety group. Came with LED's...
  17. Top mistakes since buying your Jeep

    Really wishing I had looked for a good deal on a JT Rubicon. I may have bought the wrong Jeep. Don't get me wrong, I love my Sport! The fact that it came with a lift, tires, bumper and winch for the same price as a stock Sport makes it so much better, but I've added/put so much into mine at...
  18. I thought the stock Wrangler windshield was supposed to be about as fragile as an egg!

    OP, you should put a poll on this post with something like: 1: Undamaged OEM windshield, 1-30,000 miles 2: Chipped windshield, 1-30,000 miles 3: Cracked windshield, 1-30,000 miles 4: Undamaged OEM windshield, 30,000-60,000 miles 5: Chipped windshield, 30,000-60,000 miles 6: Cracked windshield...
