  2. 2020 JLU(S) and the steering issue

  3. 2020 JLUR Gas Mileage

    I have 750 miles on mine, city I am averaging 14-15 and about 20 on the highway around 60mph.
  4. Aftermarket seats or headrests that create more headroom / stop head from hitting crossbar?

    I would also be interested in the head rest option, I believe on another thread the verdict was that the seat could not be lowered any further, but a added cushion or memory foam on the headrest would work for me. We tall guys have a tough time in the Wrangler, but I still love mine :)
  5. Rubicon Rear Differential Gear Oil Capacity Surprise

    Thanks for your reply, is this what the manual recommends? I was not sure about the 75/140, is that mainly if you tow? I will be driving a lot in slow speeds, and bad road conditions, hot humid weather, mud and dust (West Africa)...
  6. Rubicon Rear Differential Gear Oil Capacity Surprise

    Thanks! I agree that I am probably being too cautious. But the few dollars extra when weighed against what damage I could do always makes me cautious ;-)
  7. Rubicon Rear Differential Gear Oil Capacity Surprise

    I agree with the 4 quarts estimate. I personally would not mix fluids. I have no idea if it would have any effect or not, but I tend to err on the side of caution when I have invested so much in a product and am not an expert.

    I just got a new 2020 JLUR, it has the Aux switches installed, I am planing to install a Blackvue 900 2 channel using the magic connect pro that they sell with it.

  14. Is Tailgate Reinforcement Needed?

    So you would recommend a hinge reinforcement, or bumper mounted solution? In my scenario, do you think an upgrade is even necessary? I think total weight won't exceed 100 lb.

  19. Is Tailgate Reinforcement Needed?

    I plan to stay stock with the 285/70/17 BFG KO2s. I was thinking of mounting 2x2 gallon Rotopax to the spare tire, by my calculation 24 pounds for the fuel + probably 4-5 pounds for the Rotopax setup, wheel/tire combo should be around 73 pounds. Grand total around 100 pounds. The fuel would only...
