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

    90% never take the doors or top off? What % of truck owners go off road? What % actually tow something or load up the bed? I’m sure you know these numbers just as well. These are totally different vehicles and comparing them is silly. Buy your truck and go junk up their forums.

    4. Has removable top 5. Has removable doors 6. Has flip down windshield 7. Isn’t ugly like a pickup truck
  3. 2018 Rubicon Unlimited Whistle Whining Noise Transmission 1st 2nd Gear No Warranty Luck

    Your friend says the Jeep is "fast". Considering nobody that has driven a modern vehicle would describe a JLU as fast and it sounds like it has a supercharger and you bought it used.....could the previous owner have put a supercharger on it?
  4. Parked Next to a new Bronco Sport

    Except there is no "hype in the media" about the Bronco Sport. They hype is about the Bronco, which you did not see.
  5. 4xe Generator Charging

    It isn’t very clear in the text, but we know how hot vehicle interiors get. If 122 degrees = no start, these things will be broken down all over the place. I have a hard time believing that.
  6. 4xe Generator Charging

    Reading the supplement, it isn't 100% clear but it reads to me that the non-start condition would happen in extreme temperatures *and* the 12V battery is disconnected. It wouldn't make sense to disable the vehicle altogether.
  7. Lug-centric steel wheels question

    I'm not sure what your pit stop analogy or off-road machining has to do with anything, The clamping force created by the studs and lug nuts holds the wheel in place. If it's sufficient, the wheel cannot move and thus no (vertical) force can be applied to the centering hub. If the clamping...
  8. Lug-centric steel wheels question

    They remove no sheering force from the studs. It’s a misconception. If it isn’t obvious to you, consider most hub centric adapters are plastic and the lips on most vehicles are only protrude a couple MM. There is no force transferred through those lips once the studs or lug nuts are tightened...
  9. Lug-centric steel wheels question

    This is a common misconception. The weight of the vehicle does not rest on the tiny lip of the hub. Whether you have a lug-centric or hub-centric installation the force is transferred through the friction/clamping pressure generated from tightening the lug nuts. The only difference is the...
  10. Parked Next to a new Bronco Sport

    Let me rephrase - I don't see how an 8 year ownership, that ended over 12 years ago, would influence this brand new design.
  11. Parked Next to a new Bronco Sport

    12 years is pretty long ago, longer than they even owned them for.
  12. 4xe Generator Charging

    It would be more efficient to just pour the fuel directly into the tank than try to convert it to electricity with a portable generator.
  13. 21 ecodiesel jl aux switches

    Perhaps they drive glow plugs?
  14. Transmission Gripe, When Using a Car Wash.

    Perhaps you should read the message more slowly, you’ll see that it’s not the “start” button it’s telling you to press. Like my last two zf8 vehicles, it wants you to press the button on the shifter.
  15. Good luck trying to lemon an out-of-warranty vehicle.
  16. My 392 Rubicon order is showing a price now ($77k) !!!

    More like $300K once minimum wage goes to $30k/yr.
  17. My 392 Rubicon order is showing a price now ($77k) !!!

    Id love to know how you are posting on the internet without a Chinese made device (or at least components) in your hand or on your lap. Carrier pigeon?
  18. Reid Racing Steering knuckles

    At least we know the price isn’t being driven up by their webdev and marketing expenses.
  19. Dealer wants $660 to change differential fluid

    Not to mention bottom-draining fluids drain more quickly and with less burping/mess when having a valve open above to allow for air displacement.
