  1. What side steps / rock rails to add to JL Wrangler?

    I am very happy with the Rock Slide Engineering rails. My wife originally said she would never get in the jeep. Now every time I use it she wants to come along. She couldn't get into the jeep without the folding step.
  2. FCA just cancelled my warranty because of "aftermarket stuff"

    Hmm, with all this information it makes me question whether or not I should go ahead with my idea of lifting the jeep 3.5 inches and slapping on 37 in tires. My service representative said no problems with the lift as far as the warranty is concerned. But honestly nothing was said about bigger...
  3. 2020 JLU diesel skid plates

    Many thanks for the update. Looking forward to seeing this in your line of products. A side question. Will the 3.5 game changer work with the 3.0 diesel? Thanks again and stay safe and healthy.
  4. Blind Spot Monitoring on Narrow/Brushy Trails

    I have a 2020 JLU also and any time I go through any area where there is brush or anything else close to the side of the jeep the warning indicator comes on. I figure that the sensor can't distinguish between a passing car and anything else. I am not sure how to disable the indicator. The BSW...
  5. Are you concerned about galvanic corrosion?

    It is important to note that the application process for paint or powder coat (hot flocking, electro-static, immersion [fluidized bed] rattle can or any other method is only as good as the preparation process and cleaning. We have experimented with the fluidized bed for some products and it...
  6. Are you concerned about galvanic corrosion?

    No. I work with naval ship repair. Corrosion is a huge problem for our naval vessels and aircraft. Corrosion is the cancer of metal. Some alloys are more prone to corrosion than others. Some aircraft aluminum (7075 T-6) has a real problem with intergrainler corrosion where the corrosion...
  7. Are you concerned about galvanic corrosion?

    Galvanic corrosion is caused by dissimilar metals in contact with each other. Example, stainless steel fasteners into aluminum structures. The result will be the aluminum having corrosion. I have spent the last few years working with our corrosion control shop and have seen many kinds of...
  8. Mopar CAI install with hood vent cut.

    Just a little note about using a grinding wheel on aluminum. The reason why you NEVER want to cut aluminum this way is not the hardness. Aluminum is soft and "Loads" the wheel with pieces of the metal. This can cause the grinding wheel to become off balance and explode. Same goes for...
  9. Game Changer 2.5 lift for the ecodiesel

    Great news thanks. Right now my ideas and wants are bigger than my wallet. But good things come to those who wait.
  10. Game Changer 2.5 lift for the ecodiesel

    Continuing with the thread, any updates on using the game changer with the diesel. Also considering the extra weight of the engine would you recommend going with the 3.5 lift over the 2.5. Thanks in advance. Mike
  11. BRIGHT WHITE Wrangler JL Club

    My 2020 diesel. On the wish list is 3.5 inch lift, 38 inch tires, underbody armor, front and rear bumpers with tire support. Finally a HF ham radio. Some day.

  14. Anywhere to wheel during lockdown?

    As far as I can see, BLM lands are open. I have never been to Cerro Gordo area. Years ago I would take my quad up 395 into Nevada and explore old mines and jeep trails. Especially around Mina. Getting older now. I have always wanted to explore the eastern side of the Sierra. Down my way...
