  1. Gazelle in a JL?

    I searched and just found a single shot of a Gazelle tent in a JL running front to back. I need the backseat 100% unobstructed for the dogs (or passengers), so has anyone found a way to carry a Gazelle in the JLU cargo area? I'm fine with the 3-person version but even that is 57" IIRC. The...
  2. Rotopax "interlocking" containers

    This is a serious question - I'm not bashing Rotopax. I recently got two of their 2-gallon containers which can "interlock" at the bottom. Thing is, I'm not understanding the point? It seems like a PITA because they twist together and you can't remove one at a time - they have to come off...
  3. TrailRax copy

    So I certainly can't claim credit for design as I'm essentially attempting to copy a Trailrax setup, but I like building stuff and simultaneously saving money.... I'll be bolting thru the top at the BOTTOM because I just don't like the idea of hanging 100% of the weight on the gutters. Yes...
  4. 3.6 likes to leak

    I've got at least three oil leaks on my '19: the upper oil pan near the front, the RH valve cover and somewhere else underneath either behind the exhaust manifold or near the LH head. Nice work FCA, what other vehicle has this many leaks at 27k? I'm going to take it to dealer and hope they'll...
  5. Blown out shock bushing repair

    I've had an annoying clunk from my front suspension for months. I finally managed to track it down to the upper shock bushing on the driver's side. These are just inexpensive Skyjacker shocks I installed when I installed my lift. Anyway, the rubber bushing had completely failed. The shock...
  6. Wheel spacers - budget vs better

    I've been running some 1.5" RockTrix cheapie spacers from Amazon for 2 years. I've been getting some weird vibes and shimmies, but I honestly don't know if the spacers were to blame or the crappy Milestar Pats. However I've had inexpensive spacers on my '07 F150 cause inexplicable shakes and...
  7. Playin' with skidplates

    This is all totally off the cuff and I'm not sure I'm in love with the design but I am confident it's a step in the right direction and at the very least will give me ideas for V2.0, if that ever comes. The way the factory Rubi skidplate crossmembers attach under the frame annoys me, Jeep...
  8. Muffler delete under $40

    Thanks to @Jimac for the inspiration here. While Jimac modified a Dynomax delete pipe (I believe), I opted to sort of start from scratch. I've been running a Dynomax delete but the goal here was to just slightly mitigate the drone. The irony is that I've been running it long enough I honestly no...
  9. Checking toe - easy and accurate

    I checked the toe on my JL today. I'm personally not down with trying to measure off the tires, I dunno how you'd ever accurately hold 1/16", but whatever works for you. First, I've got these cheap little Bessey clamps. I use them to hold fragile materials to angle plates at my mill, but...
  10. Another JL rear-ended - Subaru suffers

    My fiancee was recently rear-ended. Surprisingly I can find absolutely no damage to the JL. Spare, spare mount, tailgate, hinges, bumper, rear window.....everything checks out. The Subaru didn't fare so well. Fiancee reports he was losing coolant and ps fluid. He just left a little fluid on...
  11. Rain gutter blocks/clamps

    In downtown Moab yesterday there was a JL with three rectangular blocks per side in his rain gutter(s). I assumed they were for a rack, basket or RTT but none were installed at the moment - ONLY the blocks. The blocks were longer than they were tall - maybe 5 to 6" long each. At the time I...
  12. Colorado Sold: JLUR take-off springs - free for shipping

    I've got my '19 JLUR take off suspension. NO SHOCKS however. I'm tired of seeing it sit around and I hate to scrap it and CL mouth breathers aren't worth my time. I stumbled upon a good box for the coils today while cleaning the shop so if anyone wants it for shipping cost contact me. If you...
  13. LCA skids at front axle

    I love doing little projects like this - years ago one of my counselors told me men tend to do better when they're building something with their hands and that certainly applies to me. I started with 4x1/8" flat bar because I wanted to mimic the radius of the factory mount....I figured the best...
  14. Front axleshafts - sources?

    I'd like to carry spare front shafts for my '19 Rubi ATM I've decided I want to keep the FAD, so I'd also like to carry a spare "inner inner" shaft Yukon offers chro-mo but only for FAD delete Synergy is just too much $, sorry. They seem to offer FAD delete yes or no, but I asked 'em if their...
  15. Service traction control & stop/start unavailable

    Twice now after somewhat extended low range climbs in Colo I simultaneously get both warnings that stop/start is unavailable and to service traction control. Actually both times have been shortly after starting the descent. Time #1 was bone stock, time #2 was lifted on 38s It doesn't affect...
  16. 8sp grinding, usually 4hi/lo

    So I don't even know how to describe this and it's so damn intermittent I can't pin it down but I get what I can only describe as a shrieking, whirring grinding noise, generally when descending in 4lo. Sometimes I'll get it in 4hi... ...and today for the first time ever I got it in 2hi, just...
  17. Schofield Pass fall colors

    Ran Schofield today from CB to Marble. I was surprised at the number of people on the lower parts (both Gothic Road and near Crystal) but was pleasantly surprised that once it got to the "real" stuff it was a ghost town....no pun intended Here's top of Schofield and looking down into the...
  18. Caster, burrs and bird feet

    Be aware if you're checking caster at the flats on the pumpkin there can be a substantial burr from the factory. In my case it easily skewed my reading over a degree, and that's a lot. A sanding disc on my angle grinder took care of this. There was a burr present on both sides I wonder if the...
  19. Who trailers their JL?

    It occurred to me if I do a rear diff skid with u-bolts around the tubes it'll interfere w my transport chains. Anyone dealt with this?
  20. Spare tire "bumper" extensions

    I just installed the EAG spare relocation kit to move my 38" Patagonia up (incidentally I think the EAG stuff is the same as what Extreme Terrain brands as Redrock). I'm still running stock Rubi alloys so backspacing didn't change but the relocation kit pushes the spare away from the tailgate a...
