  1. Would you advise your loved ones, your friends and relatives to own a Jeep Wrangler?

    To be fair, I researched reliability and what I was getting with the physical product. Completely underestimated how asinine the dealer experience would be though, mea culpa. The Jeeps not going anywhere, it’s my daily beater, but yea, learned a powerful lesson. Would never buy anything close...
  2. Would you advise your loved ones, your friends and relatives to own a Jeep Wrangler?

    I suspect that most of the Jeep dealers in Southern California are hot garbage. I’m actually at the dealership right now, just using up the Jeep Wave free oil change. Made an appointment for 7am, was not acknowledged by a service person until 740. It’s 1020 now and they still haven’t finished a...
  3. Would you advise your loved ones, your friends and relatives to own a Jeep Wrangler?

    The jeep itself is fine, especially if you don’t opt for really problematic options or drivetrains. What’s not fine is the trash service department of cdjr dealers. Appointments literally mean nothing, if you show up at your appointment time, they won’t even say hello until you’ve waited an hour...
  4. Injen High Tuck Muffler

    I think pulling the Injen exhaust over the notch is a pretty dumb idea (how exactly are you expecting an equally distributed clamping force if you are doing that??? Of course it will be loose). Just rest it against, and tighten. The indexing notch is just that, so the factory monkeys don't...
  5. Rear fenders chips :'( Protection options?

    I have these sitting in the garage, will install and let you know how it goes: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/2568/1730/products/2018_Jeep_Wrangler_JL_Rokblokz_Mud_flaps_Orange_black_Logo_7_1200x797.jpg?v=1663908501
  6. Will older JL models be able to upgrade to 12.3 screens?

    Honestly, I hate the new dash and screen. It looks like something that belongs in a Prius, not a jeep. If you want to replicate it, buy yourself an iPad and some duct tape.
  7. "Jeep's real customer base..." Article: How the Jeep Wrangler went from rock crawler to luxury SUV

    Hopefully I can capitalize and trade in my pile of crap Harley for a Ducati this summer.
  8. GOBI JL Wrangler Club

    Saw this thing in Baja, when I was down there on vacation. Probably the first of the gobi jeeps. The white/tan combo is pretty cool too.
  9. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    Thanks! It's a B&M short shifter with a speed dawgs shift nob made specifically for the B&M. And also a speed dawgs shift nob for the transfer case. There is actually one combo that would actually be even better looking, and it would be shift knobs without the Jeep logos. The branding does...
  10. "Jeep's real customer base..." Article: How the Jeep Wrangler went from rock crawler to luxury SUV

    This kind of becomes subjective. It just depends on what you value in a car. Generally speaking, how useful a car is to you as an individual is not an all encompassing gauge for whether a vehicle is "worth it" in the market writ large. An extreme case to make a point: a Mercedes 300SL...
  11. "Jeep's real customer base..." Article: How the Jeep Wrangler went from rock crawler to luxury SUV

    Fundamentally, the style of jeep that American soldiers drove across Europe into the heart of Germany are still available for around 30k. It's just a bunch of old people who want a hyper luxurious caricature of a jeep, but don't want to spend the 80k to get it that constantly whine about the...
  12. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    Fixed the crappy shifters.
  13. Rented a 4xe - my honest thoughts and assessment

    So key takeaway is that once you are at 15 percent battery, the ICE basically acts as both a propulsion unit and generator to keep you at 15 percent, provided that you're not requesting 100 percent propulsion. If you request 100 propulsion, you may eventually deplete the battery completely. So...
  14. Automatic vs. Manual Sales Split

    This is precisely the case. I think statistically, the people who have the most expendable income also have families, and modern women generally wear the pants and won’t let you get away with a 2 door anything, whether its a jeep or a sports car(likely due to their significant contributions to...
  15. Automatic vs. Manual Sales Split

    It’s actually really useful in Europe as a significant portion of rental cars are manual. I’ve seen Americans rent in Paris and drive a couple hundred miles rather than take the train to the city they needed to be and rent there because they were afraid the pickings might be slim and they might...
  16. Automatic vs. Manual Sales Split

    This is my exceedingly rare pile with the manual transmission. While I do think burning your jeep down or turning the flywheel into a grenade is really owner's fault, I do think there are plenty of things horribly wrong with the manual transmission...let's see: 1. Geared way too long on the...
  17. Automatic vs. Manual Sales Split

    I have and will continue to blame Jeep drivers for the manual transmission "issue". Friction generates heat, that's some physics 101. For you to burn a Jeep down, you would have to generate inordinate amounts of clutch slip without stopping. Which indicts Jeep drivers for being comically...
  18. New pizza cutters installed: 255/80r17 = 33.3"x10

    It's so nice to see Jeeps with tires that actually fit in the fender. Pizza cutter is absolutely the way to go for aesthetics.
  19. why do people like poke?

    I think the trend is also a function of wheel manufacturers being cheapskates and attempting to build a wheel that is both JK and JL compatible, as opposed to a bespoke wheel for JLs alone. This basically makes the wheel look okay on the JK and will have trash fitment on the JL. 1552 wheels...
  20. EXPLODED JL Clutch! Detailed Look & Testing by Advanced Clutch Technology

    I think fundamentally, unintentional clutch slippage to the point of grenading the assembly is usually a function of people being inattentive, or knowing how to drive a stick shift, but having no underlying understanding of the mechanics. It's just a black box where they press a thing with the...
