  1. Jeep on fire 🔥 oh no!

    I doubt it's the battery since the 48v battery is in the back. No idea what happened there.
  2. Are "Expensive" Tires Even Worth It?

    I have the BFG KO2s my rubicon came with, they produce an annoying noise/feeling on the freeway around 63-67mph. Luckily, I don't drive on the freeway that often! I wouldn't buy them again for that reason specifically. The last time I had BFG tires was on a car, and I had similar problems with...
  3. PSA: DO NOT BUY JEEP LEATHER TRIMMED BUCKET SEATS

    Perhaps I have low standards, but I had a 2015 JK Sahara with the black leather seats, and I have a 2020 JL rubicon now with black leather seats. Both were the 'factory' leather, not katzkins. I agree that the JK leather was thicker and uh, much stiffer. The JL leather feels thinner and much...
  4. Bronco Interior- what am I missing?

    Meh. I've seen a few broncos in person now and my opinion hasn't changed. They're not my cup of tea lol. The dashboard is very plain and the gauge cluster on the normal non-raptor version is hideous. I'll give them kudos for all the interior color options. They have blue seats as an option...
  5. The 2023 Gladiator Is the Worst Pickup Truck on Consumer Reports, Again

    All these platitudes said, I think the biggest problem with Jeep Wranglers isn't the quality. I mean, the steering box issues are FUCKING RIDICULOUS and the issues with bad paint and hinge corrosion are also insane. But no, it's not that. The biggest problem with Jeep Wranglers is the...
  6. The 2023 Gladiator Is the Worst Pickup Truck on Consumer Reports, Again

    Consumer Reports aka Toyota Reports aka why aren't you driving a Rav-4 or Tacoma?
  7. Test drove a Mach-E GT the other day...

    Yep! I don't disagree. Then again, the current LLVs the mail uses aren't that great at handling either, apparently. Still, they abused the heck out of the Jeep name back then, too :D
  8. Test drove a Mach-E GT the other day...

    Of course. Compass, Patriot, Liberty, Renegade, the modern day Cherokee... But Willys Overland did it back in the 40s too lol. They slapped the Jeep grille on a whole bunch of shit. My favorite are Jeepsters (think Jeep turned Ford Thunderbird) and my more recent discovery - the Jeep Fleet...
  9. Rubicon has gone up $5000 since 2021?

    Ya know, with all the shitting on people who buy jeeps right now, MSRP on a base wrangler unlimited is still $36k. You should be able to get a sport for $40k out the door. That's pretty much the average new car price right now. From casual observation, a lot of people here have Sport, Sport S...
  10. Rubicon has gone up $5000 since 2021?

    IDK. I paid $55k for mine (out the door) and it's mostly paid off now. I think a lot of people either have very big loans, or they just make more money than you'd think. Or maybe they are car enthusiasts that don't mind spending a large chunk of their income on Jeeps. Or maybe they don't have...
  11. Rubicon has gone up $5000 since 2021?

    I have a serious question for you. Would you get fired if you told your management that you could only work so many hours for whatever reason? I get that it would change the scope of your work. Speaking purely from an idealist standpoint, I think we'd all be better off if we had time to...
  12. Do you get unsolicited compliments on your Jeep?

    Yea! I have an ocean blue rubicon and people like it. :)
  13. Rubicon has gone up $5000 since 2021?

    Mmm Yep. Work smarter not harder. But still, that hard work is needed in some places and very much appreciated. I will say, my parents worked hard and were supportive so I'd have more opportunities. It worked, and I do! I try to treat my mother like a queen, as much as I can! She was there...
  14. Rubicon has gone up $5000 since 2021?

    That's pretty hardcore. I can attempt to offer up another viewpoint, as someone who seldomly works more than 80 in a 2 week pay period. I'm an engineer and I've been working in the space industry almost 10 years now. They don't really encourage working too much overtime, because once you get...
  15. Rubicon has gone up $5000 since 2021?

    So what do you think we should do?
  16. What do you need to drive in 3 feet of snow.

    And if you do go out, use the buddy system and try not to go out alone. I read one sad story where someone's mother went out alone and died only a few hundred feet from the house. Not sure what happened there.
  17. Third Row Seat Installed

    Almost everyone I know from those days has a story about a relative or a friend that died in a crash of one of those kinda vehicles. Flip side to this: While the cars today are far, far, far safer if driven correctly and with care, I think the drivers have become a lot more dangerous. The...
  18. Third Row Seat Installed

    Congrats for being the first person to point it out! The first thing I did after reading the OP's post was ctrl+f search for weight lol. Much to my surprise, a rubicon 4 door can hold 1351lbs payload. A sport 4 door can hold 1233lbs. Still, that's between the front and rear axles. I think...
  19. What do you need to drive in 3 feet of snow.

    Super short answer when I know damn near nothing about the subject: Snow tires. Snow tires. Snow tires! Damnit snow tires!!!! SNOW TIRES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They might not solve all of your problems, hell you might get stuck anyway, but from everything I've seen, if you live somewhere that snows...
  20. how many 3.6 engine failures

    Depends on who you ask. A lot of people have no issues with them. But a lot of people did encounter issues, particularly the 3.6 that was used in the JKs and most chrysler vehicles between 2011 and 2015 or so. (The JL uses an upgraded version that among other things, changed the style of the...
