  1. What do you call a Jeep Wrangler?

    In general, I call it a Jeep but when in situations with people who don’t care about cars/vehicles I’ll refer to it generically as a car, like as in “oh I will be right back I left my phone in the car”. Referring to it as “Jeep” in that situation just feels pretentious.

  3. Willys Edition JL Club Thread

    All, pretty sure I’m going to order a Willys to replace my 2018 Sport S when my lease is up this summer. I want something a little tougher than the Sport but don’t want to go all the way to Rubicon. I love the looks of the Willys in Sarge. I did have a couple questions: -on Jeep’s build site...
  4. Official Lego Technic Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Model

    There are basically two tracks for Lego cars, there are the ones that strive to look like the cars they are models of, with not much going on underneath the skin, and then the Technic models which are much more complicated under the skin but tend to not look as much like the car it mimics. For...
  5. Does nobody love bare bones Jeeps anymore?!

    Yup, my first car was a base model Geo Prizm with manual everything, and no A/C. Step one to driving in the summer was always key unlock driver’s door, roll down window, and then reach through steaming hot car to open all other doors by pulling up on the lock tab things, then walk around the car...
  6. Does nobody love bare bones Jeeps anymore?!

    I like creature comforts (PW/PL, heated seats/wheel, good stereo) but don’t like a lot of driver aids. So I spec’d my Jeep accordingly. I do wonder how many people have had to pay to fix broken power windows on a vehicle made in the last, I dunno, 20 years? In more than 20 years of driving and...
  7. Winches, winches

    Was literally looking at that winch today in their catalog. the Warn Evo 10k is $50 less with steel cable, or $150 more with synthetic...
  8. Jeep snobbery - RANT

    I was hunting when it’s 20* out, there’s no mud puddles like that in northern WI that time of year.

    Yeah it doesn’t get too filthy but there is some mud.
  10. Rear seat USB & USB-C connector standard in Rubicon, or comes with 8.4" system?

    Wow. $150? I’ll stick with the 10’ USB cord I string from the dash, lol
  11. Rear seat USB & USB-C connector standard in Rubicon, or comes with 8.4" system?

    Power, just want the kids to be able to plug in their iPads to charge. In fact I specifically don’t want them to run to the radio because I use my iPhone as my audio source and I don’t want the system getting confused regarding their sources.
  12. Rear seat USB & USB-C connector standard in Rubicon, or comes with 8.4" system?

    Are they easily retrofittable? I have a Sport S and would love to put them back there. Didn’t know they came on a Rubi.
  13. Any Deer Hunters Out There?

    The benefit is no bugs or other creepy crawlers when you get in the stand at o dark thirty.
  14. Any Deer Hunters Out There?

    All about where you live. In TX I’m sure a cooler is important. I hunt in Northern WI. See screenshot below of Sunday morning; no cooler needed ;)
  15. Jeep snobbery - RANT

    I just got back from a long weekend in the woods hunting. My stockish Sport S on Bridgestone Duelers is covered in mud and filth and deer guts and generally looks great. I drove back home to the Chicago suburbs and park my filthy mud covered Jeeps next to the shiny lifted bro’d out Rubicon’s and...
  16. Any Deer Hunters Out There?

    Anybody got anything yet? Opening day in Wisconsin. Not a trophy by any means but meat in the freezer.
  17. How much????? Insanity

    they have to sell a lot before the credit expires (1M?). Also, the price can go up, but in typical Jeep fashion by then there will be money on The hood, and the tech will have gotten a bit cheaper.
  18. How much????? Insanity

    thats why I lease. Pretty cheap monthly outlay, and after 3yrs/30k miles I can hand it back to Jeep. Never out of warranty. I work from home so I don’t drive that much anyways. Can’t go crazy with the mods but that’s not really my style. And you get the new Jeep smell every 3 years.
  19. Wrangler in the winter?

    I assume he means an engine block heater.
  20. Is it too much to ask?

    I don’t think it’s too much to ask, you are spending a lot of $$ so the dealer should honor your request. But for a lot of us, we look at it as a “luxury” to not have to deal with unwrapping it and the dealer was doing us a favor. also put me in the club where my Jeep was off-road in the first...
