  1. 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JLU (4-Door) ORDER GUIDE!

    I'm a bright color kinda guy, so anything that falls on the greyscale spectrum isn't going to be terribly interesting to me, with occasional exceptions (I once saw a really sharp white YJ, and although I don't much like YJs or white the combination was pretty sweet). Sting Gray, for some...
  2. 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JLU (4-Door) ORDER GUIDE!

    You managed to pick my favorite and my most-loathed colors. Nice trick!
  3. 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JLU (4-Door) ORDER GUIDE!

    CV joints, which the full-time 4wd system uses, are considered more failure-prone for serious off-roading. I think the boots can be torn to allow dirt inside, but I’ve already said more than I can back up with any actual knowledge.
  4. 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JLU (4-Door) ORDER GUIDE!

    So let me get this straight: Jeep has 5 greyscale "colors" still available, but has dropped nearly every bright color? Mojito, Bikini, Punk'n all gone? Ocean Blue too? What the hell, Mark.
  5. Family Road Trip to Pigeon Forge TN

    That location used to be Jeepism; a shame they closed but the new one is cool too.
  6. Manual Transmission - JK to JL - wow!

    There’s a good chance someone will, if they haven’t already, release a relocation kit to make the stick longer to compensate for body lifts. You might look for one. I bought this one recently for my LJ: https://ruggedridge.com/manual-tran-shift-lever-relocation-bracket-kit-18303-20.html
  7. Jeep attention worse than iPhone..! Have you noticed this?

    I did get a triple take once while driving with the windshield down on my LJ. That was entertaining.
  8. This is how the Jeep craze started. Great Grandfather to the JL.

    I think you’re mixing two different epochal changes. Ford (reportedly Henry Ford himself) designed the 9-slot stamped grille because the early Willys grille was too complex and couldn’t be stamped. So most WWII Jeeps from either manufacturer had 9. When Willys entered the civilian market...
  9. This is how the Jeep craze started. Great Grandfather to the JL.

    They’ve done as few as 5 (DJ) and as many as 10 (early Comanche and XJ Cherokee). Update: Heh, I don’t think I ever counted before, but the classic Rhino grille for Gladiators and Willys Wagons had 12 slots.
  10. Quick Poll - Why You Choose Not To Wave?

    Driving through the Outer Banks it seemed my arm was up the whole way, especially since I wave to pretty much all Jeeps, not just Wranglers.
  11. Ham Radio question with JLUR

    That’s pretty cool. I wonder whether they’d work daisy-chained; I rarely use more than one radio at a time, and it’d be nice to have any of them feeding into the same speaker.
  12. To CB or not to CB

    Or hunt on public lands. It’s a shared resource and there are (international) rules to follow.
  13. To CB or not to CB

    How is it responsible to encourage illegal use? It drives me crazy that there’s a simple high power option with no exam required, GMRS, but people feel the need to be lazy and use ham illegally.
  14. CB shop Houston area

    The problem is the rest of my Jeep friends are unlikely to get a ham license any time soon. I have my license, but I never use it, because chatting with random strangers isn’t particularly interesting to me. I need to talk to my convoy.
  15. CB shop Houston area

    I’ve had luck with the GMRS / FRS combination as well, but I still keep a CB too.’ Unfortunately there seems to be a significant trend to use unlicensed ham with the cheap Chinese handhelds, or the mobile radios from Rugged Radios.
  16. Doors and top off 100% of the time in Los Angeles CA?

    That would be one hell of an inconvenience.
  17. Doors and top off 100% of the time in Los Angeles CA?

    I’ve been without top and doors on my TJ since April in the far less hospitable clime of Indiana. It’s all a question of whether you’re willing to put up with the inconveniences. I wrote about it last year: https://oppositelock.kinja.com/the-jeep-experience-part-3-rain-dance-1827789577
  18. The how and why behind development of the Punk'n color

    Maybe Copper Orange? http://gtcarlot.com/colors/car/746836-6.html This is a great resource: http://gtcarlot.com/colors/Jeep/Wrangler/
  19. Trails?

    There’s a board dedicated to the Midwest. https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/forums/midwest.38/
  20. For you Jeep collectors out there.

    Someone should drive it to Toledo this weekend for the parade.
