  1. 2.5 or 3.5 lift metalcloak on 19 rubicon.

    Please post comparisons... I'm debating between the JK and the MC lifts. I have a winch and heavy bumper on the front and have already added a 1" Coil Spacer just to level the front end. From what I've researched I'm thinking the MC system will better compensate for that weight than the RK...
  2. Factory Fog lights quit working

    I was reading up on the TASER and I think among other things it can program the fog lights to stay on when the high beams are turned on. That may be what you already meant by a programmer. I'm getting a Taser to calibrate for my larger tires I'll soon be adding so I plan to do that mod as...
  3. Factory Fog lights quit working

    UPDATE... Getting into the Jeep Saturday afternoon after shopping, paying too much attention to the people in the car next to my Jeep, I swung my knee up and slammed it into the light control pushing the entire assembly into the dash. I tried to pull it out and ripped off the outer ring of the...
  4. Bummed after soft top vandalized :/

    The only thing to prevent this is acute lead poisoning of the SOBs that do this stuff. But unfortunately that is frowned upon.
  5. Jeep involved accident

    Looks like your tow hitch saved you a lot of sheet metal damage, though it appears to have transferred a lot of energy directly to the frame. A frame replacement is going to have you back to new and I bet you will barely notice it. Hope they can throw in installation of your lift kit!
  6. Jeep involved accident

    Have whoever does the repairs document all the repairs before and after with photos. I had that done on my VW Jetta Sportwagon when it was rear ended. I'm also shocked at the low cost of repair... I had a rear door, and back panel replaced and it was over $7k. See if whoever is doing your...
  7. doors off in rain - damage mitigation (2018 JL 2-Door)

    My nieces Toyota Corolla (I know it's not a jeep... but keep reading) was being stored at my house while she was in college. The sunroof drain plugged up and a few days after a bad rain I noticed fog on the inside of the car windows. Upon further investigation I found 2" of water in the front...
  8. LETS SEE PICS OF YOUR WHEELS W/ 3.5” BS!

    And wider rim = Wider stance given BS and OS remain the same
  9. LETS SEE PICS OF YOUR WHEELS W/ 3.5” BS!

    It's a combination of the two. A 3.5" BS on a 10" wide rim has -51mm Offset and sticks out 1" further than a 9" rim with 3.5" BS and -38 OS. On the other hand, a 10" rim with 4.0" BS and -38 Offset (same offset and more backspace) still sticks out 0.5" more than a 9" rim with 3.5" BS and the...
  10. TPMS Sensors

    Here is some information from google searching the TPMS Operating Frequency for Jeep JL which is what really matters. If the operating frequency isn't correct, your system will not match up to it regardless of where you sourced it, what country it was made in, or what model jeep you are...
  11. Another Member JLU Collision Report (with video)

    Where the hell do people learn to drive these days. This is why we need cars that drive themselves - for these stupid people. Though the more technology we put into cars the more stupid people driving them become. I'll take driving my car myself, responsibly, and put these other idiots on a...

  13. New Jeep Owners: What was your last car, and WHY JEEP?

    Keep the sports car - you'll regret getting rid of it even with all the fun you will have in your Jeep. They are the two extremes of awesomeness! I have a 2003 Porsche Boxster that I am so glad I still have for those sunny days on the twisty roads or trip to the track... On the off-road...
  14. Scaffold for Hardtop storage and removal works great

    My 2003 Porsche Boxster fit in between the scaffold uprights, but I doubt the jeep will. My Porsche takes priority over the Jeep for the garage space... so I haven't actually tried it (the Jeep) for fit. I used pipe insulation as a scratch guard on the uprights of the scaffolding. Also works...
  15. Factory Fog lights quit working

    Best to just Google Search UConnect Update - there are a ton of videos on it. Once on teh UConnect website you basically type in your VIN and it tells you if there is a new update available for your vehicle.
  16. Factory Fog lights quit working

    So now they are on all the time when the lights are on. When I hit my high beams this morning, the fog light icon remained on which was odd, I thought it went off before indicating the fog lights were off (which they should be when high beams are activated). I didn't have time to get out and...
  17. Factory Fog lights quit working

    So I made some leads and powered the fog lights direct off the battery to the terminal block on the bumper wiring harness... lights worked perfectly. Tested continuity from the ground on the chassis side of the wiring harness and it was good. So at that point I know either both hot wires on the...
  18. Factory Fog lights quit working

    I very much appreciate the offer, and will keep it in mind if my checks identify the lights to be the issue. My helper (daughter) will be home from college this weekend so I should be able to get the checks done then - hard to reach all the things you need to when you are one person! I'll...
  19. Factory Fog lights quit working

    Haven't done that yet - that's my next step, followed by tying in a different set of lights to the switch to see if it's the switch or the lights. I tried to do a continuity check on the LEDs, but they don't work like incandescent bulbs for Ohm checks and I don't have a Diode Check mode on my...
  20. Factory Fog lights quit working

    Thanks - sometimes it is the obvious stuff, but not in this case... Pressing the light dial switch is definitely not activating the fog lights. I've even tried it in different modes (AUTO, ON, Parking Lights) and nothing. The switch does have a tactile feel like it is activating, but the...
