  1. Genius Battery Charger mount & Inlet install. Lots of pics!

    Or you could add a solar panel on the rack with a DC to DC inverter and be done.. that's my plan.. DC-DC converters - Victron Energy
  2. DIY Gear Swap - Step by Step Video's - Rubicon 5.13

    Yes! Thanks for for doing this! I have reaching out to Dana after market group with zero success... I am interested in how to do a gear and axle swap (better components), while minimizing warranty impacts...
  3. Jump starters: who’s got one and what’s good?

    Well, I am not buying the rationale that FCA can not help, At Boeing we routinely talk to pilots and operations staff to ensure they feel supported and they have the information they (Airlines - DOD) can leverage every dimension of the platform they purchased. Dealers are not equipped to do...
  4. Jump starters: who’s got one and what’s good?

    Too bad we can not get @JeepCares and FCA to provide a real FCA Jeep electrical engineer to explain in detail the use cases and design.. vs all of us re-engineering their design. What a waste of time.. Thanks Jeep.... arggg.. One boring weekend, I will intentionally drain both batteries and try...
  5. 392 Hemi V8 Concept Reviews by Roadshow and Motor1

    I think so too.. if i was interested in MPG, the diesel would be a good option.. I have my hopes high the 392 will happen..
  6. 392 Hemi V8 Concept Reviews by Roadshow and Motor1

    Well i would not expect a big difference either.. my 2018 JLUR 3.6 never sees better than 17 MPG on the highway in Cali.. I just did 1200 miles on highway 395 to lake tahoe to LA and back.. 60-75 mph.. routinely in 6 gear down shifting (4k rpm) to pull hills while on cruse control (stock tires...
  7. Jeep Wrangler 4xe PHEV Teased Again in New Videos, Confirms December 2020 Availability

    Just so we are clear, math and physics are irrelevant. As I stated, smoke and mirrors.... I will stand with proven science, that Jeep did not do the rubicon trail (loon lake to Tahoe) on pure electric. Prove it.
  8. Jeep Wrangler 4xe PHEV Teased Again in New Videos, Confirms December 2020 Availability

    Yes the battery size is very small for a 5k lb vehicle to be useful, chevy Volt same batt size, 1500 lbs lighter, lucky to get 30miles on charge. So mode 1 and the quote from Jim Morris implies, he was in hybrid mode.. 17kw and powering 134 hp and 181 lb-ft 100Kw electric motor does not...
  9. Jeep Wrangler 4xe PHEV Teased Again in New Videos, Confirms December 2020 Availability

    Yep, I understand, I had a chevy volt for many years. When the battery is dead.. its dead and so is the additional torque - hp.. maybe the assumption is the motor can charge and propel at the same torque - hp, but i doubt it.
  10. Jeep Wrangler 4xe PHEV Teased Again in New Videos, Confirms December 2020 Availability

    for 10 minutes, then what? Guarantee this will not hold up to the rubicon or dusy trail... did you see the battery size... lots of smoke and mirrors from fca on this... I hope I’m wrong, but the math is not adding up.
  11. underseat battery??

    If we could get a few of us to by these used Lifepo4 to offset the shipping cost we would be set.. https://batteryhookup.com/products/byd-24v-8s-lifepo4-3kwh-blowout You bring up a good point, my warn winch pulls 400amps.. batteries go quick..
  12. underseat battery??

    I am still looking at the circut drawings, but according to this the ESS Batt is fused at 10amps and no power going to the engine crank circut, but i am still looking and learning..
  13. underseat battery??

    Andy thanks for your in depth knowledge on this topic.. question, are you suggesting there is an active isolator separating the ESS run time and charge circuits and they only go into parallel during a cranking session? Thanks in advance! TC
  14. underseat battery??

    I was thinking run the isolator wires to the engine compartment and terminate with charging clamps, just like any other charger. Simple and I don't have to worry about a legal war.. As far a battery location, i am still leaning toward possibly in smaller portable battery box or find a place...
  15. underseat battery??

    Jeep dealer and FCA said, as long as you dont hard wire together it your warranty will stay intact. I don't like their answer, but i really don't have a choice.
  16. Genius Battery Charger mount & Inlet install. Lots of pics!

    Nice build out.. I am struggling with the approach.. I am leaning toward a 2 400 watt solar panels, a solar charge controller MPPT https://baymarinesupply.com/solar-wind/charge-controllers/victron-smart-solar-mppt-charge-controller-150v-70a-tr.html solar and an isolator...
  17. underseat battery??

    I was told by Jeep that will void your warranty on your whole electrical system. I wish there were Mopar approved dual battery systems, but there are not.
  18. So you have a Service Axle Locker warning light. How I fixed mine.

    I just had another long conversation with Mopar Vehicle Protection at 1-800-521-9922 they suggested a 3 way call between the dealership and the Mopar Vehicle Protection "authorization" department. The have the authority to grant "approved fixes" without voiding warranty. I hope this helps.. TC
  19. So you have a Service Axle Locker warning light. How I fixed mine.

    Heads up team.. I work for a big company (Boeing) and I know the challenges working with big companies, so i jumped in to help.. after a dozen calls and emails I am getting some traction. I am pushing on FCA and now Dana for warranty focals to get engaged and @JeepCares is trying to help...
  20. 2021 Wrangler Fleet Buyers Guide Shows Gecko, Nacho, and Chief Blue! NO MORE SARGE?

    I would not get too excited .... I am sure you wont be able to add an bigger or replacement battery with the current FCA warranty rules - policies.. long live simplicity!
