  1. Any regrets going automatic?

    I have been driving a standard transmission for the last 30+ years, and as long as my knees work, going to keep doing so. I have better throttle response with manual, I have better 4X4 control with manual, I can use the transmission to slow me down if hauling load, and speed up with more power...
  2. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    Although I have not read every reply. I would take a good bet, there is an electrical connection which has become loose. My Story. Picked up brand new 300K motorhome in June 2019. We started across USA from West Coast heading to GA. Got to eastern Oregon, and low voltage warning on ECM...

  5. Discount pricing - Order vs Off the Lot

    As an aside, we looked at a Gladiator PU the other day when JK was in for some service. Wow, what a cool truck, got extra storage under back seat, so we talked about trading both cars in for one of those. The dealer only sells MSRP Sticker, since that is not going to happen to me. I told him...
  6. Park much?

    Hey Guys/Gals, my 2013 does the same thing. Every since I put new tires on it, it is not as tight as it was before. Tomorrow, having front end alignment checked. It's frustrating, because I used to be able to put this thing straight as a level, now not so much. Frustrated too!
  7. Steering - a careful analysis

    All - Just put new Michelin tires on 2013 Sahara UL. 69K miles or so. Air Pressure is set to 35#, checked. The vehicle wanders more now then it did with the almost bald old Michelins on it. They are the exact tire I used before. I believe I have the recommended 500 miles on them so they are...

  9. LOL, My favorite convenience feature in my JL. Yours too?

    I like my current 2013 JLU Sahara, but the 8.4 and backup camera are the kickers for me if I win lottery. Going to buy new motorhome, and keep this one for 3 more years. Putting new tires on it Friday, really looking forward to those. But I think I need the truck anyway, and want them to iron...
  10. Jeep Dealers Are Offering Up To $9,500 Off New Wranglers

    Have driven by several dealers in my travels lately. They are "stocked to the gills" with Wranglers, and to clear those, it's going to have to be way better than 9K+ for me to take the bite on a vehicle that won't have all the things I want, and then be stuck with an auto transmission which I...
  11. First Thoughts

    You will miss having the extra room with the unlimited. I can speak from experience, Owned a 2009 Unlimited Sahara, and then upgraded to 2013 Unlimited Sahara, to do what? Tow behind a 40' motorhome. But, we always need to take stuff with us, which won't go into the RV, so the jeep get it's...
  12. Track bar sheared off at the weld. I feel like I’m cursed with my new JL

    Gave buying a new one a lot of thought. Unless I win lottery, going to keep my 2013 for at least three more years, either they will get better, or not, and that gives me time to figure out what to do. Really want the truck, but with all the issues of the JL, just not sure I want issues now.
  13. Help! Squirrels eating front bumper

    We left the jeep at our cousins house, so we could go back to WA and get the household goods, gone about a month. Did not notice anything for a while, but came out of restaurant in Cumming, GA and jeep would not start, hmmmm, battery was fine. Disconnected the neg cable, hooked It back up...
  14. AMAZING Deal on my 2019 JLUR order!

    I believe you should have contacted Dave Smith Jeep Chrysler, in Kellogg, ID and get their price over the phone, believe, you could have gotten it down to 45K, at least that was the quote I got last Summer, and I put on everything except the cold group and the auto trans for a JLUR. So I think...
  15. Heard Funny Description of Jeep Today

    This gentlemen was talking about his jeep as his B.O.V=Bug Out Vehicle, and he mentioned that it is an ongoing process so he can tweak his items. Anyway he mentioned the jeep as "Just Empty Every Pocket" as the description on his. It was a JK type. Anyway many have most likely heard this...
  16. A Warning To Those With A Stick

    Ok, may not be germane, 2013 JKSU, 6-speed. I live in the N-GA hills, so mine hardly every gets into 6th gear. I have 66K miles on it, and I have never had a metal on metal sound out of my jeep. I would not have a vehicle with an AT, since that takes all the fun out of driving a jeep in the...
  17. 8.4" Touchscreen wear!!!! WTF?

    Hmmm, looks like finger greese to me. I have to clean the screen on my 730N screen all the time. I use a cotton diaper to clean it. It won't scratch it using that. Not sure about any other type of cloth. But you have warranty, they will replace the whole unit, make sure they put in a new one.
  18. I'm a new buyer. Am I on the right track?

    Hmmm, I always get more vehicle than I might use, simply because you never know when having the extra capability might save your life or make life easier. I am too old to spend time under the thing adding carp to it, the manufacturer can put on while making it. I leave mine mostly the way they...
  19. Can't decide ... Sahara or Rubicon??

    Ok, I own a JKUS w/6-speed. I like my jeep. but when I next plop down the money for a new one I am getting the Rubicon, why. Well lots of reasons but none to do with any serious 4x4 plans. First, we live in the sticks, never know when the SHTF weather wise, or we have some civil insurrection...
  20. Highway Driving

    Hmm do we have any divers here. Have any heard of the bends? Gas, all gas expands when warmed or the pressure around a vessel (read tire here) lowers, hence the fact that nitrogen bubbles form in our blood, if we do not decompress on the way up from a deeper depth than earth standard. Have...
