  1. 3.6 WITH Etorque vs. 2.0 Turbo (no Etorque)

    I had the luxury of having a rental Sahara 2.0 for a couple of months (in fact, driving that rig caused me to buy my Rubicon) while also having my 3.6 e-torque Rubicon. Both had auto trannies and I can say the 2.0 was more fun to drive, it felt peppier and simply accelerated much quicker from...
  2. Oil Funnels--Anyone Try This?

    I just did the first oil change last weekend and was thinking I should buy another oil cap, drill it out and epoxy a funnel to it to do exactly what the funnel you posted does.
  3. CB/GMRS Dual Radio stack mount DYI.

    No issues using the antenna under the hard top? I have the same Midland radio and antenna on it’s way to me now.
  4. What's everyone running for road PSI's?

    BFG KO2’s 315/70R17 34 psi on road 11 psi off road
  5. Tire rotation, yes or no?

    5 tire rotation with oil change every 3,000 miles. Just like I did with my previous 5 Jeeps over the last 25 years.
  6. Dealer wants $660 to change differential fluid

    Pour a pre-measured amount of fluid in through the vent hole?
  7. Dealer wants $660 to change differential fluid

    The problem arises if the fill plug is destroyed and somebdy that doesn’t have the means to remove it pulls the drain plug and drains the fluid. Now what? They have a Jeep that can’t be driven to get the fill plug removed since there’s no oil in the diff. I know I would have no problem getting...
  8. Dealer wants $660 to change differential fluid

    Ok, you win. You’re right, I’m wrong.
  9. Does anybody know exactly how the Rubicon AWD system works?

    I’ve been searching and can’t find a definitive answer. Does it have clutches in the transfer case? Or is the AWD portion strictly gear driven? I heard it’s it’s clutch based, then I heard it’s an “on demand” type system. I’ve been searching for an exploded view of the transfer case to inspect...
  10. Pics of oem Mopar Steel bumper with winch setup?

    Warn 9.5 TI on a Warn plate but new mounting holes drilled about 5/8” closer to the drivers side. The winch in slightly offset but works as needed.
  11. Dealer wants $660 to change differential fluid

    Well, that particular Jeep was less than 5 years old with 70k miles on when I bought it, so it’s not too far fetched to see a newer Jeep with similar problems. An example is an old boss of mine had a new Chevy Blazer and during the second oil change it was discovered the drain plug had been...
  12. Dealer wants $660 to change differential fluid

    All the torque in the world didn’t remove this transfer case fill plug on a Jeep I purchased a bunch of years ago. I did get creative though. First picture is how it looked before I touched it.
  13. What's this alarm?

    Ahh, that makes sense now.
  14. What's this alarm?

    If you bought the Jeep brand new my question would be why in the hell is there ANYTHING added without your knowledge?
  15. How much does your Jeep weigh?

    Well duh... take it apart and weigh each piece separately...
  16. How much does your Jeep weigh?

    Trust me, after seeing the weight I checked to see if there were any fatty’s hiding in the glovebox or console....
  17. How much does your Jeep weigh?

    My 2021 4 door auto Rubicon just weighed in at 5,250 ish pounds. I went to 2 different scales and they were about 80 lbs difference between the two so I averaged the weight - factory built with every option except soft top Mods include the following: - 1-1/2” Tereflex spacer lift - 35” KO2’s on...
  18. Lost Rear Spring.

    Somethings not adding up, I would say no way anyone could drive without noticing a rear spring missing but people never cease to amaze me with their abilities.
  19. Differential oil change

    That recommendation must have changed for 2021, no mention of using 75/140 for the Rubicons in my manual. Actually, no mention of a different fluid for towing at all in my manual. Or maybe it’s because mines built to Canadian specs?
  20. Overlanding battery

    I installed a second battery a couple of weeks ago. It’s an AGM rebranded Northstar that I have in a DIY battery tray located beside the subwoofer in the cargo area. To keep it isolated from the main battery while not running I used a simple solenoid from amazon. I ran a 4 gauge wire from the...
