  1. Lowered Gladiator

    Add the angry grill.
  2. Will the Bronco cause a price drop for the Wrangler?

    If FMC had kept its eye on the ball, ('69-'71 vintage 302 V8) we'd be wheeling better Jeeps today at cheaper pricing. Wheeled one of those and it wiped the CJ5 both on 4WD trails and interstates. CJs, however, rusted much less than Broncos. That's why so many more are still wheeling. Note the 0...
  3. Not Starting Jeep "THING"

    Too bad those leaf springs weren't optional.
  4. 6-Speed JLUR with 35s vs 37s (no re-gear)

    Drove and wheeled with brother wheeling 35s on his loaded JLUR 6sp. 35s are optimum. 1st gear in 4 low is plenty low, never needing it unless negotiating boulders or managing insane inclines. Open road driving with slight inclines and/or headwind will require the sensible 5th gear which is...
  5. Introducing Jeep Adventure Academy! School to Provide Essential Off-Roading Instruction to Jeep 4x4 Owners and Enthusiasts

    The supplied instruction manual seen on right side of dash is all one needs to know regarding Jeep wheeling.
  6. One-Touch Roof Not Removable?

    Catch is those free washes are only good for when the top is down/off. Known as getting soaked.
  7. I think I purchased too much Jeep?

    I've made a lot of great purchases from crazy people.
  8. Really great Bronco features you'd like in the Wrangler

    That's a real problem where I like to wheel. Narrow slot and shelf trails. JLs are becoming ever more bus like as it is. The Bronco Sport is wider still. No deal for me.
  9. Really great Bronco features you'd like in the Wrangler

    That's the free paint on JLs.
  10. Tried (and failed) negotiating on a Rubicon today...thoughts?

    Go wheel the Hell out of it! I. Do not use lockers to get into trouble. Use 'em to get out of trouble.
  11. Tried (and failed) negotiating on a Rubicon today...thoughts?

    Not many get a second chance to correct a wrong decision. Your luck is extraordinary. See post 35 from OP below: Buying my first wrangler soon - need some educated input
  12. Factory black plastic fenders

    Electroshock therapy also works well for long term treatment.
  13. Tried (and failed) negotiating on a Rubicon today...thoughts?

    I'm sure you did; there's a lot of drinking around that base. With all those F1s it's amazing the town's still there.
  14. Tried (and failed) negotiating on a Rubicon today...thoughts?

    I completely agree regarding hardtop management. My TJ's hardtop is much more difficult to manage than your vastly improved JL's. I've had a $250 frameless top on since April and if I didn't already have a hardtop, I doubt I would seek one. The point I'm trying to make is if you ever decide you...
  15. Tried (and failed) negotiating on a Rubicon today...thoughts?

    If you can get 3% this time of year, it's a very good deal. 7+?% on inventory, December 31. 6-8% on factory orders, late January or late February; then price goes up. You really should go with a Rubi. I'm speaking from the experience of suffering the expense of trying to after market all the...
  16. Jeep Is Installing Solar Chargers at Moab And Rubicon Trail For New Hybrid Wrangler 4xe

    And yet it's promoted as a truck. No wonder we're not getting the kind of Wranglers we old guys want. My TJ serves as a truck....with a kinda 4 foot bed.....deleted the back seat. Don't wanna pay 70 Grand for a Rubicon pickup that's not a pickup. Moreover, it's hardly a Rubicon considering the...
  17. Jeep Is Installing Solar Chargers at Moab And Rubicon Trail For New Hybrid Wrangler 4xe

    Since 2007, the Wrangler brand has been writhing around like a headless snake. Rather than sticking with a proven chassis, developing that chassis as technology evolves, Wrangler just keeps adding and deleting trim levels and drive trains. 2 years for the LJ, then 4 years for the 3.8 JK, seven...
  18. Tried (and failed) negotiating on a Rubicon today...thoughts?

    One advantage we have in NM is a trade never needs to be considered. All we need to do is wait for someone to steal it, then look for a good deal. Sanctuary state, but no fires, hurricanes, quakes, or tornadoes; just dust and politicians.
