  1. Looking for side mirrors for door-less driving. Soooo many options out there

    CMM here. A well-engineered product. Expensive? Yes, relative to cheap mirrors. Relative to the Jeep itself, still pretty inexpensive.
  2. Post pics of your Rubicon on 35s no lift

    2020 JLUR diesel on 315/70/17 KO2, Method MR313 +25mm wheels. No lift.
  3. Have an EcoDiesel JL Sahara for the week...some observations.

    This is all personal preference I’m sure. But I agree with you 100%.
  4. Have an EcoDiesel JL Sahara for the week...some observations.

    In my area this doesn’t happen often. But while out for a motorcycle ride today, found these fuel prices in Plainview, MN.
  5. 3.0 MODS - Show em off

    That’s very encouraging. The regen process must be more refined than on my 2014 Ram. I’ve been waiting for some obvious sign that my Jeep’s performing a regen, but hadn’t noticed an instantaneous drop in mpg, nor smelled it like I do on the Ram. I have about 1350 miles on the Jeep and expected...
  6. Diesel RPM on Highway

    I’ve only got 315/70/17 KO2’s ( that measure about 34 1/2”), but at 60 it holds 8th pretty well. With a Tazer to tweak in the speedometer to agree with gps, the tach shows 1500rpm. With enough headwind and mild grade it will sometimes drop to 7th. I can’t imagine it needing 7th at 80mph...
  7. Have an EcoDiesel JL Sahara for the week...some observations.

    I think a diesel is something you either want or you don’t. Personally, I don’t try to justify that decision based on fuel savings or whether reliability has already been proven or not. I wanted one since 2014 after buying a Ram 1500 Ecodiesel. I became hooked on the power delivery and how...
  8. Alternator request

    I did drive mine this morning but forgot all about keeping an eye on the voltage. I can say that on other drives, when I have the off road page up showing gauges, I have noticed the voltage reading vary quite a bit (Like upper 12’s to upper 13’s I think). I will try to remember next time I...
  9. Diesel RPM on Highway

    Granted, my example isn’t using actual tire diameters, but roughly speaking, if a 33” tire-equipped Jeep runs 2000rpm @ 80, then a 35” would run: (33 x 2000)/35 = 1886 37” ——> 1784 etc.
  10. Alternator request

    I wonder if the rise in voltage when coasting isn’t a fuel-saving thing fca implemented? It would make sense; since the vehicle is off-throttle, it’s a “free” opportunity to charge the battery using the vehicle’s momentum, by using more of the alternator’s capability. Then when accelerating or...
  11. 2020 JLU EcoDiesel test drive review: Diesel gets a chance to redeem itself (Automobile)

    And I’m averaging 25mpg, a mix of hwy and small towns, running 315/70 KO2 tires. Hwy speeds generally 60mph. I didn’t really drive it enough on the stock wheels/tires to say what the average would have been, but it wasn’t uncommon to see 28-30 at 60 on the instantaneous mpg display. Wind can...
  12. 2020 JL EcoDiesel Dyno Run

    That is kind of weird. I'm also interested in hearing the answer.
  13. Wrangler Diesel Engine Questions

    Thanks. It had been a while since I visited the website. As I revisited the site just now, I remembered that I had found a contact button but that it didn't help me. This time with my work PC (don't tell I get a different response when clicking on the "contact us" button. On...
  14. Wrangler Diesel Engine Questions

    I had posted this question in the electronics section but didn’t receive an answer: Many of us have the Tazer. I wonder if the designers of that device have access to the regen data through the connections it makes with the Jeep. If so, could they put up indication on the dash display? Do...
  15. Extending the spare tire bump stops

    Lots of ways to lengthen those as others said. Just for reference, I have 315/70/17 KO2 on an 8.5” width wheel with +25mm offset, and found the factory tire bumpers to be the perfect length.
  16. Owners Manual and DPF?

    I agree 1000%. I’ve said it before. I can imagine it’s some marketing person who believes they’ll lose sales to people for fear it will come across as something to be concerned about or something. I think most of us Jeep people would not view it that way, and would really appreciate having...
  17. Anyone getting a custom vanity license plate?

    I’m still waiting for mine to arrive. But did receive the title a week and a half ago. It shows I’m getting what I’d requested: DSLJEEP
  18. Owners Manual and DPF?

    I know I’ve said this before, but I too wish fca would indicate on the dash display when a regen is in process. I have a Tazer Mini, if that could indicate a regen, that would be nice too.
  19. Tracking Jeep JLUR Diesel Issues

    Wicked3.0, Does the DEF tank gauge still read above empty? I was just curious if a failure of the DEF level sensor would cause that dash message.
