  1. JLU vs Equinox shows steel bumper strength

    I bet they don't total it. It is pretty easy to swap a frame on these Jeeps. the cost is the labor. I think $27k is much, but there is a dealer in Houston doing Hemi Motor swaps in 3 day turn arounds with body off frame. I dont see why it would cost more than $18k for that repair plus parts...
  2. Dirt backroads in East Texas, anyone?

    Well, welcome to East Texas where the flat land is a plenty and public land is not to be found. So Happy hunting. Here you have to get creative or travel for some nice trails. Which, Hidden falls is not bad at all. But It is not that local to me. so traveling 3 hours to test trail worthyness of...
  3. Dirt backroads in East Texas, anyone?

    https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/docs/TN/htm/TN.545.htm This is the rules for County Highways. Nowhere is it stated that you may not travers the side of the highway under an overpass. However, IT IS ONLY IN COUNTIES not City Jurisdictions, and you cannot traverse the median or go between your...
  4. Dirt backroads in East Texas, anyone?

    Ok, So I know this sounds crazy but I was in the same spot. I needed a place local so I can test any and all mods Iv'e done to the jeep and Texas is not know for having places readily available. Believe it or not, IT IS NOT ILLEGAL to drive off the highway under overpasses. You can create trails...
  5. When You're in a "Mixed Marriage"

    I Miss being stationed where it snows. now I'm retired in the State of Texas, not even north but SOUTH EAST Texas where if it snows it's dandruff from an old ladies Arse! Ugghhh! Get me back up north to where I can have my mountain tops and Snow shoes back on! I HATE the heat but the wife, she...

  8. 2021 JL Eco Diesel needing repair?

    Well, I'm by no means any expert on Diesel anything so that part I admit; Having said that The DEF purge makes as much a plausible idea as turbo cooling since both will need to be done to prevent damage and ensure longevity of the motor. Older cars and some Diesels would have a turbo timer that...
  9. 2021 ecodiesel badge

    I like it but really wish they had a blacked out version instead of Chrome/polished. Ughh, but, IMO it is way less tacky than the sticker. Looks less Cheap!
  10. Jeep Wave Program worth it?

    Like I stated earlier, For my Diesel I will keep using the WAVE program cause it pays for itself just for oil changes. ALL and I mean ALL my other vehicles including my SRT that takes 8 Quarts of Royal Purple every track day or 2x's a year are done by me and me alone. But none of the others have...
  11. DEF Pump went out!

    Sorry for the short response last night, here is the whole story but it is a little long: @ 4500 miles I was at a half a tank of Def and figured I would fill it back up since it was DEF at the pump. filled it up and the needle never budged. drove it around for an hour or 2 and it would rise and...
  12. DEF Pump went out!

    yes, it turned out it was a bunch of crap! Loose fuses! Can you believe that! After looking at some posts on this forum me and the service manager went and checked and sure enough, 1/2 if not more of my fuses were not seated. Long story short, I have my Jeep back, and Chrysler refunded me a...
  13. Jeep Wave Program worth it?

    my Jk always takes 6 quarts. Maybe it’s a fluke. Maybe I’m over filling it for 5 years but the dummy dots tell me I’m spot on so, I think I’m good. And since it’s full synthetic, it ain’t cheap anywhere! Even with deals and coupons. So there’s that. Ana just FYI the diesel is the only one I use...
  14. Jeep Wave Program worth it?

    ummm, yeah not a chance! Between All Pantastar motors requiring full synthetic oil and not the good ol’e 5 quarts, but 6 to 7 quarts it’s like$65 to$70 for a full synthetic oil change. The eco diesel is no different costing around $95. If you do it yourself you can catch an Autozone deal on...
  15. Jeep Wave Program worth it?

    i let them do the oil change so there is no chance in hell they can ever say that a motor issue is due to me not maintaining my proper oil changes or intervals. they will have no excuse. This is a 1st Gen revision Diesel, so I even bought the extended warranty. Let ALL of the liability fall on...
  16. Jeep Wave Program worth it?

    Yes! 100x's yes! My jeep was in the shop for a service issue for over a month. called Jeep cares and they escalated the parts. they called the dealer on my behalf every 4 days and sent me an emailed update and on Friday of every week my rep would call me with an update. after it was all said and...
  17. JLU Pillar Damage Need Advice

    Just tell the insurance company the truth'ish. you went on a lease road out in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the night, didn't see the downed tree and hit it. they don't ask too many questions asside from "are you ok? were you able to driver it home? did you file a police report? were...
  18. Overheating...

    Check your fuses....J/K But My JLUR/D has 5500 miles in south texas heat pulling a trailer of about 4k#'s at 80MPH for 500 miles stopping only for snacks and bathrooms and never left 225*. average Highway temp was 101*. when we hit traffic in san antonio off I-10 for 30 minutes with the ac on...
  19. Soft top vs hard top

    I traded my hardtop for my softtop and will never look back! It just makes too much sense to have the softtop now as they are more quiet and insulated than they used to be, easier to use, you even get more head room! No more zippers, no more stupid bar across the back that stays there even when...
