  1. Jeep (JK) Theft Caught on Security Video

    I wonder if that applies to the newer models given all the computer parts. GPS tracking, periodic communication with with wireless updates, etc. Or is that not a thing? Can I drive my JT across Eastern Europe no problem like the one guy did in his 2011 JK?

    Ah, I couldn't tell from the video

  4. Dealer wants $660 to change differential fluid

    If you have a level driveway.
  5. Dealer wants $660 to change differential fluid

    And none of that goes to the axles? I am not mechanically inclined, and trying to understand. Wouldn't you want some sort of lubricant, grease or otherwise, around metal that is spinning inside a metal tube? Even if the housing doesn't touch the actual axle shaft.
  6. Dealer wants $660 to change differential fluid

    that sounds like changing diff AND axle fluids around here
  7. Dealer wants me to sign a new lease contract

    I avoided leasing because I couldn't stand the idea of a 36k limit. I'm a year in and already at 30k+ miles. The penalties of going over suck. I am also partial to my vehicle, but if I can in the future find a way to roll a lease to make it cost-effective, I'd be all for it.
  8. FCA Merger effect on Jeep?

    Same boat. So I try to buy the things that employ the most Americans. That was a huge benefit to buying Jeep, vs buying a Camry which would have been more practical and employs thousands of my fellow Kentuckians, or Ford which employs hundreds of people in my city, but ultimately Jeep won.
  9. How May Miles on Your 3.6?

    I'm up to 31,500 miles on mine. Got it end of October 2019. So 14 months. Throttlebody had to be replaced after the steering TSB was performed. I don't know if they are related.
  10. Catalytic Converter Theft- what to do

    That's decent advice in any situation. And in general, don't believe what you read on the internet, there's a reason attorneys exist and charge by the hour lol. Back to the original OP: converters are being stolen all across the country. If I recall the JL's CAT is fairly easy to reach/see but...
  11. Catalytic Converter Theft- what to do

    The standard in SOME states is as you have it. The standard in others is as I have it. I'll PM you on the stuff in bold. The other stuff is fair advice. Like anything, it's all a matter of what you're willing to risk and what you hope to accomplish. For some, having a CAT stolen incapacitates...
  12. Catalytic Converter Theft- what to do

    Actually, many states DO have some sort of provision. Including preventing felonies, carjackings, etc. And in many states the standard is whether YOU felt afraid for your life. Well, dude cutting a CAT can cut use that tool to cut you, had to shoot him to protect yourself because he was making...

  14. Check your insurance coverage/contract

    Geico was by far better than All State or Progressive. Neither could provide me a definition on what a "road" was. When I asked if backroads, old county roads that were rock ruts and mud would be covered, agents said no. They were also way more expensive than Geico. And finally, I had worked a...
  15. Check your insurance coverage/contract

    Well, it's been about a year since this thread was started. I'm happy to say in my year or so of ownership I have not caused anything to need an insurance claim. Hoping 2021 goes the same way. Through some digging I did find at least one more thing to consider: that how you convey you would use...
  16. My 392 Rubicon order is showing a price now ($77k) !!!

    But you never get that "factory guarantee", though I suppose the crate engine comes with it. Don't most engines also need to be paired with a specific transmission? Then your ECM needs to be adjusted, then there are programming/wiring problems that can stem from that.

  18. My 392 Rubicon order is showing a price now ($77k) !!!

    Except the cost is WAY less at the factory to put one in. No labor taking one out and much less labor putting it in. Maybe a $15k upgrade
