  1. Fridge on OEM battery - impossible?

    I bought a 37 qt snomaster and rail system. The 12v rear plug wont run the system, yet it's not dead. Not sure what the deal is. It runs in my pickup so the cord and fridge arent at issue. Must draw to much?? For now I have it running off the inverter and it works just fine. It has me...
  2. Goose Gear plate system install (full rear seat delete)

    It's the reason I didnt go with them, the wait time. So I built it myself and have to say by the time you figure out how you want it done, buy the materials, go several times to pick up more materials, etc, you've (or at least me) have exceeded the wait time. I'm still working on it. To be...
  3. What do you think will fail first in the JL driveline?

    interesting, never heard of RCV's blowing before upgraded stuff. RCV's do break but it's pretty rare comparatively speaking....at least so I hope. lol I got mine through a shop and it showed up immediatly. This was 6 months ago before covid hit. Plus it seems like RCV's are getting pretty...
  4. What do you think will fail first in the JL driveline?

    For the 3.6 I agree. I had a TJ with a warn kit for full floating rear and locking hubs in the front. I normally just kept them locked since it wasnt a daily driver. On occasion I would unlock them and it was a difference you could immediately feel in extra power. I'll bet with the 4.0L the...
  5. What do you think will fail first in the JL driveline?

    I was going to go one piece RCV but my shop guy went that route and talked me out of it. He didnt like the way it drove and was noisier. Per him if he were to do it again he'd go two peice. I called the RCV peeps and per them it's less then 5% difference in strength between the two. When you...
  6. Will the Bronco cause a price drop for the Wrangler?

    The latest shiny penny is what many are looking for. The REAL bronco failed before and it had a SFA. Personally I thought the older one was better then its contemporary (jeep), yet it still failed. Thinking maybe there really is only one jeep.....
  7. Really great Bronco features you'd like in the Wrangler

    I paid 43k for my JLUR, love the darn thing but I do miss my 2 door. That's a pretty good price point that bronco wont likely touch in more ways than one.
  8. Really great Bronco features you'd like in the Wrangler

    I have the 5 speed 97 4 runner, I think the reason is seat layout. It's a weird position that has you pretty much sitting on the floor which is why I think it the ground clearance it has. It's pretty impressive and I think about building it up all the time. The departure angle does suck...
  9. V8 Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept drive review by MotorTrend

    I get 16+ in my 3.6 IF I can keep my foot out of it. when I'm feeling like a teenager I'm at 12-14. It's a fun little PROVEN motor. But a V8 would be amazing.
  10. V8 Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept drive review by MotorTrend

    I'm sure jeep had business reasons for the motor choices. But I agree with you. But I also love my 3.6 and those with the 2.0 love it as well. Apparently the motor characteristics are different between the two choices. The 392 will be sold in the same way other big power motors are sold...
  11. V8 Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept drive review by MotorTrend

    I've read guys getting 16mpg with their 392 conversions. I'm getting that with my 3.6 with 37s and 4.88s. I routinely get about 10mpg on the semi tech trail. Likely the 392 would be the same. While I dont care about gas mileage I do care about range on the trail. I dont think there will be...
  12. TrailRecon spotted last Saturday outside of Silverton, CO

    agree. I dabbled in YT for years, who hasnt. I was laid up about a year ago and started watching it more. Some of it's crap, but a lot of it is as you said good quality video. I'd watch it over a lot of other non-YT content. Truly the world with REAL people are at your disposal vs some the...
  13. TrailRecon spotted last Saturday outside of Silverton, CO

    I watch them. Great stuff. I also watch another guy and gal team from oz. I forget their name but they were great until they got arrested in Iran for using a drone. They got out of jail with a lot work from government officials.
  14. TrailRecon spotted last Saturday outside of Silverton, CO

    I watch a bunch of YT content. Mostly to get idea's since I'll be doing the same thing unless it's too much work. lol I like pretty much all of them. A few things like the constant food being made has me fast forwarding to get past it. How many times should I watch Venture4wd make a...
  15. Spied! V8 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Hemi Production Version Begins Testing!

    I think all of this is great. It appears auto makers are all going the route Ford is and jeep./FCA is upping the ante. The not so far future will have boring vanilla, battery powered, self driven vehicles. Likely we will all have them for commutes, shopping, etc. Might not even own em, just...
  16. Fun Factor 2 door vs 4

    Too funny. Even 3 people is kind of pain if your going somewhere and need chairs, cooler, etc. The 4 door blows it away in that regard.
  17. Fun Factor 2 door vs 4

    lol! This is partly true. I ended up with a 4 door and LOVE it. Way more fun that my old TJ as far as power. The added room just makes it way more practical for what I will be doing with it. BUT, the best part about a 2 door isnt what you can do with it off road, and my TJ was VERY well set...
  18. Goose Gear plate system install (full rear seat delete)

    Like you I have no subwoofers. So no plastic trim for the goose gear to come up against only the carpet. Did you need to trim any carpet or did you lay the platform on top of it or push is aside? Great write up...Thanks!
