  1. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    Agree with you on the t taps and the wire nuts. For the typical DIYer, my sense is that the likelihood of properly soldering a joint is much lower than that of properly crimping a joint (and please don’t use one of those dimple crimpers!). I certainly don’t trust my own solder skills, but I...
  2. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    While soldering will certainly work if done right, a proper ratcheting crimper with adhesive lined heat shrink connectors is likely a better solution. There is a reason that is the way most electrical systems on boats that are done to last use crimped connections. Rabbit hole found here...
  3. Jeeps and boats

    I own a 50 year old 34 foot sailboat — a piece of classic plastic. It made the whole Just Empty Every Pocket thing much easier to accept. If you can put “marine” on the label it adds a zero to the price.
  4. Removed hardtop and heard loud POP!

    I broke one of these the other day removing my top (clearly user error) and it made a nice pop. Easy fix with some g-flex epoxy.
  5. New York Desert Does It Shorty Seat Jackers

    These are still available. @scasoria: Sent you a pm.
  6. New York Sold: Desert Does It Shorty Seat Jackers

    Have a two week old set of the Desert Does It “Shorty” Seat Jackers for sale. A little too tall for my liking. In excellent shape. Don’t have the instruction sheet anymore, but that is available online and it is a simple install. $75 gets them shipped anywhere in the lower 48. PM me and...
  7. HYDRO BLUE Wrangler JL Club

    Well, nobody ever showed up with a picture of what this would look like, so I took the plunge and bought a tan OEM top off of a forum member. Finally got it installed today and am very happy with it.
  8. What did you do WITH your Jeep today.

    Got the front windows tinted to match the others, and also had the exterior detailed to buff out the pinstriping I picked up in the Pine Barrens. Local one man shop did a great job. EDIT: Meant to post this in the "to" thread, not the "with" thread, but it will have to live here I guess.
  9. What did you do WITH your Jeep today.

    Started the summer off right.
  10. CMM Mirrors Top or Bottom?

    I am 6 foot 1 and didn’t notice any issues getting in and out with the lower mount, but I haven’t used them much. I also have the ball mount being used to hold a radio, so the upper mount won’t work for that for me. I kind of like the look of the upper mount though …
  11. CMM Mirrors Top or Bottom?

    Yes, I believe so. The website was a bit confusing when I ordered these, because they talk about both mounting positions and at the time I at first thought you had to choose before ordering. But there is only one way to order them. I mounted them low, but pretty sure you just swap sides to...
  12. CMM Mirrors Top or Bottom?

    A little hard to see, but here they are mounted in the lower spot.
  13. Wheel and tire set up

    Well, Mike is on Long Island (as am I — great mall crawling here!), so that probably makes him a “traditional” New Yorker. We aren’t all so bad …
  14. What did you do WITH your Jeep today.

    Drove from NY down to College Park, MD to pick up a kid from UMD and decided to take the scenic route and go explore the Pine Barrens. I was solo, and this was the first time ever taking the Jeep off-road, so I took it pretty easy and bypassed a number of mud holes that I am pretty sure would...
  15. Jeeps parking next to Jeeps... post yours!

    Stopped to pick up some coffee while headed towards the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, and lookie who I ended up parking next to:
  16. FAD gone on 2023 Rubicon?

    I have a 2023 very similar to yours but have a FAD. 2023 JLUR XR with 2H, 4H Auto, 4H Part Time and 4L.
  17. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    Took the doors off for the first time. Lovin’ it. CMM mirrors worked great. Tan soft top will be going on soon, but have a long drive to make in 2 weeks to go pick one of the kiddos up from college, so waiting on that before installing.
  18. Bottomed out my 22 JLURXR today - It was some crazy XTREME offorading

    Ah, my “same” was different than your “same”. ;-)
