You've all convinced me...5 tire crossing rotation it is!
I can't explain the service manager's bad advice, since he's younger and started as a mechanic.... but the '40 yr old misinformation' makes exact sense for hubby - it's been a couple decades since he's done serious work on cars. He...
Got an even better one... Hyundai dealership sometime around 2008. I normally used a mom & pop for oil changes in another town at work, but this time went to the local dealership at home a day off. [While I trusted the independent shop they later proved to be an issue as well].
That’s pretty much why I wrote this thread. Because every source I find is what you all are saying.
Yet the service manager is no dummy. We talked about several different topics. This was the oddball though. I haven’t asked anyone else at that dealership…yet…but I can’t for the life of me figure...
I plan to, we already have the basic tools.
Not sure if I’ll even use the free Wave rotations at this point because if we are using different patterns it’s no good…
That and I’ve had to change a way overtourqued tire in the middle of the night once, alone, in not the greatest area. I have no...
I've ordered my first Jeep and y'all have inspired me to learn to do as much of my own maintenance as I can. We have a very good local dealer so I asked some questions.
I was surprised...they do NOT do 5 tire rotations unless requested by the customer.
The service manger will get back to me on...
Perhaps...it's actually my second Jeep order. My first was an I4 engine. Cancelled that and reordered for the V6. But that I4 ordered went in before my sister's basic Sport S w/LED package. Also purple reign. Yet her's went scheduled very quickly and that I4 did not.
So there's hope for you :)
Because shop classes disappeared from schools years ago. My father taught me how to change tires, air filters, light bulbs and the like but it was my husband who enlightened me to the fact that it doesn't take a mechanic or an auto shop to change your oil. Then he proceeded to teach me. After...

Will also be my daily driver & a never-selling-it vehicle so hubby talked me into all the bells & whistles:
Safety & Advanced...
I too would consider the Xtreme Recon package. I’ve got it coming on my ‘23 JLUR. It will also be a daily driver.
Disclaimer - I’m a complete novice to offroading and this is my first Jeep.
That said - 2 different dealerships have assured me that while the XR package is $4k, doing the same...
Just went to my first JeepFest… a company called EZTrunk makes hinges that allow the softtop hatch to operate like the hardtop/powertop hatches. They also said if you buy their products at a festival like that you get 40% off the website price.
