  1. Is the Wrangler JL Reliable enough for a 10k road-trip?

    Only one problem with that. When your main battery fails you'll have no warning and the electronics will just have an aneurism one day. No, thank you. Combining a Jeep with Murphy's Law could turn into a life threatening situation. I'd say I benefit tremendously from ESS and it has nothing to...
  2. Is the Wrangler JL Reliable enough for a 10k road-trip?

    In addition to the usual checking & topping off of all fluids, change the oil before you go and check batteries. If you still have the original batteries they've just entered the early end of the timeframe in which they're expected to fail. An easy way to monitor batteries is if ESS doesn't...
  3. 20’s or 22’s which to choose and why?

    The KO2 AT tires you have on there are already about the best tires you can get for your use case. They're good on road and when aired down they're good in beach sand. They're not the best in mud but it doesn't sound like you're going there. But you want the Jeep to sit wide and beefy. All you...
  4. Hybrid Button Question

    It's a hybrid, not an EV. The gas engine can't just sit there. It has to be used sometimes and the 4xe will switch to ICE if it hasn't been used in a while. It's not just for when the EV battery runs out.
  5. Fire extinguisher mount for 2-door hard top

    I can give you a suggestion as I have the soft nylon velcro strap mount that you don't want. But FWIW, it's quite secure and doesn't move even over the roughest terrain. If you can't find what you want for a 2dr it's a decent option.
  6. Jeep Concepts for Easter Jeep 2023?

    3023? Methinks you may be planning too far ahead.
  7. Spare Tire One Inch Smaller

    Yup, modern technology and jerry rigging are not friends.
  8. Spare Tire One Inch Smaller

    Don't do it. You'll freak out the Jeep if you use the spare. The wheel speed sensors will constantly think the smaller tire is slipping and losing traction because its rotation speed will be slightly faster than the other tires. Then all sorts of unnecessary alarms and restrictions will kick...
  9. Takes some getting used to...

    That's the Live Front Axle as opposed to Independent Front Suspension. You'll get used to it, it's the Jeep being a Jeep. Remember, the charger was designed and built to be a fast highway vehicle. For the Jeep, highway performance always has been and still remains a completely "oh, that too"...
  10. Is the Convenience Group worth it?

    More than handy. When winter camping they're the reason why you get out of bed in the morning. They can be like a wireless recharging pad sometimes. I rarely use remote start. My JL is in a garage that loves to be 42 degrees (heaters come on below 40) so there's little point to it. But it's a...
  11. Second Battery Powered ARB Compressor

    The battery specifications should have a Maximum Continuous Discharge Current rating. That's what you can't exceed. However it's typically double that of the Max Charging Current. So if Max Charging is 50A then it can likely discharge at 100A. But don't assume that, double check. I wouldn't...
  12. Tire pressure

    You did say "For some, the dealer doing is the way to go". Just sayin. But it's incredibly easy to do! So easy that it's great to have kids do it (except maybe the driving 100' part). Seriously, name one person capable of driving a Jeep who can't perform a chalk test. You have no way of...
  13. MY22 Wrangler- Wobble

    I'm not a conspiracy theorist kinda guy. I just remember that if you do get DW you're going to be very vocal and inquisitive about it., you will not quietly deal with it. You'll probably go down several frustrating dead ends trying to figure out the source of it. Finally, it may just be a case...
  14. Using baking soda to neutralize Road salt on your vehicle?

    Didn't think about that, plausible point. I have also wondered how much of an impact our hard water has on dissolving salt, but i'd think it's still the most effective way to get rid of it.
  15. Using baking soda to neutralize Road salt on your vehicle?

    FWIW, my JL has been exposed to a lot of salt having being driven on the Bonneville Salt Flats and heavily salted winter roads. Between healthy coatings of Fluid Film every fall and thorough rinsing with water after major salt events (just a gentle rinse with a lawn sprinkler, not a pressure...
  16. Using baking soda to neutralize Road salt on your vehicle?

    There's a lot of posts about this and combined they don't make any sense. Everything from use vinegar (a mild acid) to baking soda (a mild alkaline). Neither of which are good for undercarriage protective coatings, which if you're concerned about salt should be the first thing you apply before...
  17. Tire pressure

    The dealer is generally the worst way to go when it comes to PSI. For some reason many dealers seem to think tires should be at 40 PSI. They do come from the factory at 40 PSI but that is only to prevent possible flat spotting during storage & transport and to maximize MPG ratings (at the...
  18. JL High Altitude Suspension vs Rubicon Suspension

    Absolutely! I spray painted my Old Man Emu Nitrocharger shocks because they were yellow and my accent color is red. The red & yellow looked way too "hot dog stand". Clean them really well and sand the existing paint a bit for best adhesion.
  19. Tire pressure

    Don't take anyone else's PSI unless they have the same tires and have the same weight Jeep. Do a chalk test to determine exactly what PSI is best for your Jeep. IIRC the stock TPMS will put up a warning below 32 PSI. If you get a Tazer you can lower that warning threshold down to 25 PSI. If you...
  20. JL High Altitude Suspension vs Rubicon Suspension

    You would want both the Rubicon shocks & springs. The suspension will sit about 1" higher.
