  1. Unbelieveable Service (radio issue)

    I think that there are two issues here. When your Jeep was new the installed radio came with a S/N specific XM trial subscription. There are at least three different subscriptions and each has a different trial period. One is for several years. So XM sees the replacement radio as already...
  2. Rocks caught in crevice of fender flares

    I did the YouTube fix with the Amazon tubing. Works well.
  3. My Jeep left us stranded in the middle of nowhere for 3 hours!

    Most auto parts stores will let you use their OBDP Reader. Then google the error code.

    I have always done a 1000 mile (1,600 km) breaking oil change. Every vehicle!
  5. New Jeep Owners: What was your last car, and WHY JEEP?

    I traded in my HUMMER H2 after 15 years. If they were still made I’d have another H2. I chose the JLU because it was the most comparable go anywhere, do anything vehicle.
  6. Daily Driver Mods?

    ive added quite a few mods but none to the suspension and running gear. Put on a Bestop Sunrider in place of freedom panels. Love it! So much more fun. Trade off is more wind noise but not terrible. Splash guards help keep it clean. Fender strap sand, pebbles and debris on JLs. YouTubenfix with...
  7. Lockable Storage

    4WP had the Tuffy Center Console Lock Box on Sale and it works well. Fits phones, small tablets and handguns nicely. Also Amazon has a variety of portable gun vaults with security cable that wraps around seat mounts.
  8. Any successful amazon orders?

    Yes, lots of stuff from Amazon. Quadratec matched Amazon price on Bestop Sunrider top.i do like Amazon Prime free shipping and returns but on the big stuff I like to order direct from the big Jeep suppliers and manufacturers. They will often match prices and ship free. Do the research and avoid...
  9. 2.0 or 3.6? Canceling diesel build

    I rented a 2.0 E Torque and it ran well. I like the turbo. However, I don’t like the 24v electric motor! Much more complicated system and more to go wrong. 3.6 Pentastar motor is a tried and true workhorse. I found the 2.0 liter 4 cyl Wrangler getting about 2 more MPG. 3.6 with 8 speed runs...
  10. 2.0 or 3.6? Canceling diesel build

    Knock sensors should retard the spark advance and alleviate pinging and knocking. 5k on my 2019 3.6 and only run 87 octane. Never had a ping or knock. my 2019 Vette and my Harley CVO recommend 91+. I’ve tried 87 and no pinging or knocking. Knock sensor does it’s job on all three. Manual says...
  11. What's the best way to protect the cargo area?

    I have two German Shepards and I installed the Rugged Ridge Cargo Liner. Covers sides and floor. Can cover all with back seats down or just the rear with seats up.
  12. Adaptive Cruise Control / Brake lights

    When the ACC on mine actually brakes, the brake lights do come on. When letting off the gas by ACC they do not come on. Much the same as when driving without ACC.
  13. Pretty Please Bestop

    I too have installed a Sunrider for hardtop and was waiting for the retractable sun shade. In the meantime Bestop makes a Sun Bikini mesh targa sunshade that they say will work with the Sunrider and allow you to open and close the Sunrider from inside the JL. I have one on order. Hope that it works.
  14. Pretty Please Bestop

    Bestop, I live in South Florida. I love my Sunrider but..... I have been searching the internet for a shade that won’t stop me from operating the top from the driver's seat. On other sites people say that they put in a sunshade and just park and get outside to operate the Sunrider top. Kinda...
