  1. ODB 2 Ports and SGW For Dummies

    @AndySpill, Andy, wow what interest in this subject. I'm impressed. First however, I'm no expert on this topic at least not in the detail you are probing. I do have a fairly extensive experience in Controller Area Network (CAN) bus implementations albeit prior to the introduction of the...
  2. Your Best Pictures from your Home State / Province 🗺️

    Mike, Fuel Ammo Anthracite, 17x9". Mated to Goodyear Duratrac 35x12.5x17 All-Terrains. Jay
  3. 2020 JLU Instrument Cluster Black/Blank

    @SoggyCashew, I had the same dark EVIC problem on my 2019 Sport. However, as it turned out this problem, just like the pic you provided, ended up putting $10K in my pocket. (Really). I purchased my JL 'almost new'. It only had just shy of 900 miles on it when I drove it off the lot. The reason...
  4. Using manual shifter to get into 8th gear?

    You can always select 8th gear whenever you want. The transmission control software will not let you hurt anything. Recall, any manual shift into any gear is just a 'request'. If the conditions are not correct for the gear selection, the software will either prevent it or simply override it. I...
  5. Jeep Jl Misfiring

    @Jab16, Jillian, yes to all the above. An OBDII reader will certainly give you way more information to go on. I'm assuming you have the 2.0L Turbo but it really shouldn't matter. The diagnostic trouble codes (DTC's) should be rather telling. Misfires can be caused by a few factors but not a...
  6. Using manual shifter to get into 8th gear?

    @RubiGrey, Is your Jeep a Rubi or something else? What gears do you currently have? In my experience the 8-Speed Auto does a wonderful job at adjusting for the 35's. It has the ability to 'learn' your overdrive habits by seeing that you request 8th gear often. When I lifted my 2019 Sport 3.6L...
  7. Your Best Pictures from your Home State / Province 🗺️

    There's absolutely no place in the Colorado Rockies that's not the most spectacular place on the planet. Every angle, from any vista, from any altitude. The higher, the better. Enjoy, Jay
  8. Bad gas mileage

    @jman, Jason, what power-plant, transmission and gearing do you have? Since you mentioned your Willy's is stock, I'm suspecting the standard non-Rubicon 3.45 gears. Yet, I'm pretty sure that package my have other axle options. Where in the USA do you hang out? What type of dinosaur goo do you...
  9. Help me understand my fuel tank size

    My 2019 JL 3.6L 2-Door Build Sheet indicates an 18.5 gallon tank. Tank capacity must have changed to a smaller 17.5 gallons on later model years. So also be cognizant of this. Regardless, when the low fuel warning indicator comes on, I've never put more than 12.5 gallons in (ever). For me, I...
  10. Question about the small battery

    @Canucklesammich, As per Andy's post above, it sounds like the Genesis Dual Battery System is right up your alley. Really. It not only totally eliminates the AUX altogether, it gives you easy access to the two similar 'Main' sized batteries. Ultimate in available power and very well thought...
  11. Jeep Stolen in Downtown Montreal

    Question, did you have a Tazer installed? Just wondering if the Security Gateway Module was bypassed? Any idea how they defeated the ignition? Was it locked, any evidence of broken glass? Please think before answering on a public forum, especially if yes to the Tazer. Your insurance may have a...
  12. Turning in 4H

    Jennie, Anytime moving between high and low gears, yes it's safe to come to a complete stop after shifting the transfer case. The transmission software seems to like it when you put it in drive with the brake applied. Jay
  13. Class action lawsuit alleges 4xe 2021 - 2023's do not function as advertised.

    For reference, in my lifted on 35's stock 3.45 gears, 3.6L Auto, I typically average 23 mpg (city) 25 (highway) here at 5200 ft along the Colorado Front Range. I always use the higher octane offering and it's currently been just shy of $3 per gallon. Big (huge) difference between the 14 mpg...
  14. Turning in 4H

    Yes, I too sometimes get the flashing "D". I believe the transmission controller gets confused when shifting into gear without your foot on the brake. All this automation certainly can be finicky. Once in 4L, hit the brakes, come to a full stop and shift into Drive. You're ready to rock-n-roll...
  15. Turning in 4H

    @Elysian Highlands, Jennie, Yes you're going way too fast. The shift into or out of 4L should be barely moving. I want to reiterate 'barely'. Just the slightest movement at all, is all that is needed. Just the distance to get the teeth to align with the cogs. Slower the better. Dead stopped...
  16. Stop/Start Not Ready-Battery Charging

    Again and after a bowl of popcorn, who in their right mind thought that ESS was a good idea? Only some mind numbingly brain dead bureaucrat who could not fathom the intricate implementation details that would drive every ICE owner into complete meltdown frustration, would be satisfied. I guess...
  17. Stellantis changes the terms on my 36mo Lease!!

    @tomk62, Thank you sir for reading my post as it was intended. Yes the issue is not just the vehicle's worth at the end of the lease but it's perceived worth whenever it's sold. Either immediately or at any time thereafter. The leasing companies are starting to take notice that if used...
  18. Stellantis changes the terms on my 36mo Lease!!

    Sure you can characterize and qualify batteries according to their specific types. However, whenever (eventually) that type of battery degrades past the point of usefulness (regardless of distance driven or time used) it needs to be replaced. Will that event be on your dime or someone else's...
  19. Stellantis changes the terms on my 36mo Lease!!

    Some on this thread have picked up on the true nuance; Stellantis really doesn't want the Jeep on their books at the end of it's lease's term. Nothing about residual or any perceived change in policy. A used battery is the issue. Leasing is in fact the only real way to own any EV, PHEV or...
  20. Turning in 4H

    Darryl, Sorry didn't mean to imply any lack of knowledge on your part (my bad if that's how it seemed). You're post just happened to remind me of how little some people never really stop to think how things work. I didn't mean this to sound like a lecture. I'm really no expert. I know little...
