  1. Adding aftermarket remote start - suggestions?

    I have this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07SYBJTVB/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Inexpensive, easy to install, and has an OEM feel. Mine works from 100 yards away. It has never failed me. BTW...I try to stay away from the dealer at all costs, and this mod is not...
  2. When did dealers service centers start treating customers like an inconvenience?

    We beat the dealers up for 5% below invoice and then we wonder why we aren't getting loaners? Like most things in life, you tend to get what you pay for. Buy a premium vehicle, for full boat retail, and you'll be coddled.
  3. Tazer JL Mini on a 23 JLU?

    After you get it resolved, check out the Tazer extension cable. It saves bloody knuckles. https://www.zautomotive.com/product/z_sgw_ext/
  4. Driver side mirror does not adjust far enough out to cover blind spot.

    If it could be eliminated via mirror adjustment, it isn't a "blind spot".
  5. 35’s on 2021 Rubicon Questions

    As an aside, consider a five tire rotation with the 35s
  6. Set my expectations: Downsides to Jeep ownership

    How the heck do you remember the warranty issues? - I can barely remember what I had for lunch yesterday. My wife also has (seemingly) total recall on past vehicle repairs - frustrates the crap out of me. :)
  7. (Yet another) Steering issue thread

    IWith a 2.5" lift you need more caster than the Mopar non-adjustable LCAs can provide. The extra .25" length of the Mopar LCAs are fine for a stock Rubicon (even with the Ecodiesel's slighty taller stance), but I wanted to get to roughly 7° of caster.
  8. Wrangler is currently #2 most price marked up (over msrp) new vehicle on the market. How can people be paying this much!

    I have to push the BS button on this one. 20% as an isolated incident maybe, but 20% on average, no way.
  9. Diesel Rubicon Sucks in Snow

    Are we being punked? :)
  10. HornBlasters Wrango Horn Kit install on 2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 3.6L WITH eTorque

    Bad idea, and particularly dangerous to motorcyclists. [I've been an nearby "train whistle" victim when someone was roadraging another car. Nearly dumped my bike]. WAY too dangerous to startle other, uninvolved vehicles in close proximity.
  11. Beware the dealerships!!

    My old high school was recently torn down/rebuilt. When I attended there were two programs: college prep and vocational. It will reopen as vocational exclusively. That's a strong message.
  12. Beware the dealerships!!

    I was hoping for a change for the better when Berkshire Hathaway bought my local dealership (Airpark Jeep in N. Scottsdale), but no discernible impact yet.
  13. Beware the dealerships!!

    I'd say a safer bet is 1 in 10. Mine wasn't even repair-oriented. It was the half-eaten bean buritto I found seeping into the perforated leather rear seat after servicing my new GC at the dealership. You can't make this stuff up.
  14. Steering Wheel Not Centered After New LCAs

    This kind of discussion makes me happy that I paid a shop (only $100) to install my adjustible LCAs. No off-center steering wheel, or pulling. And...if I needed an alignment, the shop would not have hesitated to suggest it. It was the Caterpillar Heavy Equipment level of torquing that put me...
  15. How much recovery kit - is too much kit?

    Wow. That's not so much a recovery kit; more like an end-of-the-world kit. :) Impressive
  16. Most economical way to add some pep to my Wrangler?

    This statement is absolutely true. But...it shows that you haven't personally tried one. And...the throttle controller is a tireless helper. You'll tire of manually modulating with your foot after 5 minutes, and then you are back to the land of no pep.
  17. Most economical way to add some pep to my Wrangler?

    I agree we this. Sometimes perception trumps reality. In this case, the throttle controller (only) makes the vehicle "feel" faster seat-of-the-pants. But...isn't that what it's all about? This is a classic example of you really need to try it before passing judgment. Virtually everyone who...
