  1. Catastrophic Failure at 31,000 Miles (2021 2.0L Turbo)

    I’ve seen plenty of usernames—even here—that include real names that in no way line up with them personally. Maybe Margot is the name of a pet? It happens.
  2. Do I need to regear?

    I’m admittedly not the best person to answer. But I’ve got some questions that might help. Engine/transmission? If you’re in a 6 speed, I’d argue probably, but you’d know if 6th was utterly useless or not. With the automatic you’re fine. How does it drive in your opinion? Sluggish? Still feels...
  3. Catastrophic Failure at 31,000 Miles (2021 2.0L Turbo)

    Jackass (aka Al) included his name in his profile. It helps convey gender to other people so that they can use the correct words. I would argue "guys" is multi-faceted and isn't exclusively masculine, but "guy's" is definitely masculine and the word he meant to use.
  4. ESS battery replacement.. Wait.. What?

    Often times warranties that are standard (by law) in EU/EEA we (Americans) think are just a fantasy. I honestly wouldn't be surprised that the aux battery is warrantied for 5 years in Norway.
  5. What did you do to your 2dr today?

    I'm guessing that means you don't have access to the storage cubby? Or do you have the sub there? If you have the sub, any rattles?
  6. Stock head unit is toast.. Any recommendations for an upgraded head unit?

    I got mine for $400 shipped from the Gladiator forum. I've seen them (recently) at $350 shipped. Took an hour to install: 15 minutes to install it and 45 minutes to get the screw I dropped down into the abyss. To me, that was worth it to get (wired) Carplay and gamble on my hated...
  7. Stock head unit is toast.. Any recommendations for an upgraded head unit?

    The UCONNECT3 was at least 5 years out of date before the first JL rolled out of the factory. I had a similar experience when I rented a car for a couple weeks for work earlier this year. It was so nice: wireless carplay automatically connecting, just using a magsafe puck when I needed to...
  8. Stock head unit is toast.. Any recommendations for an upgraded head unit?

    This was part of my hatred for the stock 5" radio. It always defaulted to radio (AM or FM—whichever I left it on), and the input gain on radio was significantly louder than USB/Bluetooth. Every time I turned my Jeep off, I had to remember to cut the volume way down or it would blare at me when I...
  9. Clutch Issue, Class Action Filed

    Not that I'm in favor of banning most people, but I believe anyone who creates an account and then creates a thread within X days (or their first post is) about a lawsuit should be banned with their posts deleted. They add nothing to the discussion or community. But I am not a mod. Edit: Just...
  10. Catastrophic Failure at 31,000 Miles (2021 2.0L Turbo)

    I'm not sure the response you're looking for. You had an incident, the incident inconvenienced you, and now it is resolved. I've been in two cars that had similar catastrophes. The first was a 78 El Camino where the core itself cracked; it was summer in Texas, so I just bypassed the heater core...
  11. What is the usable fuel amount on the 2dr JL?

    Buying stuff in Canadian Fun Bucks* is always nice. I linked to their HD version which includes an "Extra 3mm bash plate". I first read about it on some thread here—too lazy to search right now. I think he said it sticks slightly below the regular fuel tank, so skids might be a problem. * I...
  12. Cheap Jeep Hacks! Show 'Em Off Here!

    National Park After Dark? That's where I first heard it.
  13. Catastrophic Failure at 31,000 Miles (2021 2.0L Turbo)

    Fair enough, I added the word "engine", but I think we have very different definitions of the word "catastrophic". I personally do not think it is a synonym for "sudden" or "unfortunate".
  14. Cheap Jeep Hacks! Show 'Em Off Here!

    They used to do that on purpose at a campsite in Glacier National Park. The wikipedia summary just mentions garbage, but there were reports that they purposefully baited the bears with food grease because the guests liked it. It did not end up well :(
  15. Catastrophic Failure at 31,000 Miles (2021 2.0L Turbo)

    If I run out of gas, it suddenly stops the engine and puts me in a situation where I can't use my car until "fixed" (i.e. I put more gas in it). So does that count as a catastrophic engine failure?
  16. What is the usable fuel amount on the 2dr JL?

    Not quite a replacement tank, but here's a 2-door aux tank. Long Ranger JL 2Dr - 40L.
  17. QTDDTOT: Questions that don't deserve their own thread

    I’ve never looked into weight vs range calculations for EVs, but assuming the right connections and the dirtier generator power doesn’t hurt anything, I’d think a little Honda generator could net you enough miles to make a difference in a pinch. Definitely not something to use every time, but...
  18. Fair price for Left over 2dr 2023 Sport S with manual transmission?

    When I was shopping for mine, I saw a 2018 2-Door base sport selling for 20% off sticker; it was well into the 2019s, and it had been sitting on the lot for a while (long enough the battery was dead when I went to test drive it). It was also the only 2-Door within 2 hours of me—not because they...
  19. Fair price for Left over 2dr 2023 Sport S with manual transmission?

    I was assuming "about 38k" means more like 37.5 rather than 39. Given Koons is offering 9% below invoice on factory orders, 6-7K below sticker sounded reasonable to me. But they're obviously willing to wait for someone to pay sticker (or close to sticker) since they've only had a couple weeks...
