  1. Ground tent vs sleeping in jeep

    All depends on the type of trip or the weather. If it’s nice out, and I’m gonna stay in place for a few days, tent it. Bad weather, or a place with high animal activity I want to be in the Jeep. It’s perfect for me and my 80 pound dog. When I do sleep in the jeep, Reflectix on the windows have...
  2. “Service Axle Locker System” Light On

    Got it back after 3.5 days. I really do hate service departments, looks like I need to invest in a good code reader to decipher this computer on wheels. Annoyed to say the least that they damaged my harness during removal of the actuator. They did repair it, but would it be unreasonable to...
  3. “Service Axle Locker System” Light On

    Add me and my buddy to the long list of Jeeps affected by this. Both vehicles were built within 3 weeks of each other in 2020, and are ‘21 models. He has 20,000 kms on his, mine has 47,000 kms. The light doesn’t stay on, rather cycles on/off repeatedly while on uneven ground. It doesn’t stay...

  6. How many miles/kms before your first windshield chip or break?

    19 months, 42,000 kms and not a single ding. Had some hard hits that I thought for sure we’re gonna crack it. I probably shouldn’t have said anything, as I probably jinxed myself

  11. Warning to ALL potential Rubicon owners!

    Wrap it in something loud and obnoxious and they won’t want to drive it. Hubby hates my jeep, so I get it all to myself
  12. Confession time…

    I got the rear Center seatbelt buckle jammed between something down there. Had to fold down the seat to get to something in the back. Forced the seat downwards because I couldn’t figure out why it wasn’t letting me fold it down, and completely squished my Center seatbelt buckle. It’s gonna be...
  13. Camping setup (don’t want a rooftop tent)

    I have many different setups, depending on what type of trip I do. Pop up shelter that becomes kitchen/dry gear storage space. one bin that has backpacking cooking gear, utensils, hygiene needs, lighting, fuel/oil for the chainsaw. Chainsaw/axe always comes with me. Then one bag of clothes...
  14. Sleeping in Jeep/RTT how to stay warm in cold weather?

    Condensation is going to happen, even if you crack a window. I set up the temp control to be on recirculating/AC/heat to help dry out the air, and keep a cloth handy for wiping the inside of the windows.

    I’ve been researching brakes lately because I need to do mine. Found some interesting things. Sport models are BRY, Willys/Sahara/Rubicon are BR6. High altitude models like yours are a BR5 brake code.
  17. Sleeping in Jeep/RTT how to stay warm in cold weather?

    I’ve done camping in snow this winter. I sleep in the jeep with a foam mattress, a very thick sleeping bag, fuzzy blanket as a liner, toque, and well dressed for bed. Yes, my sleeping gear is bulky, but a good nights sleep is worth every inch of space. I’ll also cheat a little and run the remote...
  18. Why do all dealers overfill with 6 qts?

    I’ve gone down this road with my local dealerships, even going as far as talking to the service tech. THEIR tech manuals state 5.8 quarts for a fill, yet our owners manual states 5 quarts. They follow their books blindly no matter what they say.
