  1. Auxiliary Battery Blues

    Did a quick check on P/N 68368854AA, about $80.00
  2. Engine Break In

    Great, you know what you are getting. Speed is not the important issue, engine RPM is. Don't drive it like an old Granny and don't drive it like your on the race track. If you very your RPM frequently for the first few hundred miles all will be fine. Do your first oil changes early to include...
  3. Engine Break In

    said this on a similar post a few days ago. Unfortunately unless you ordered it and are sure that no one else has driven it than it is more than likely to late to worry about with all the dealership studs and customers test driving it. The good news is, it is not a boat motor and a lot more...
  4. Florida Roll Call!

    Spent quite a bit of time in that area many years ago, beautiful place. Now I am at the far corner on the other side, can almost see Alabama. Welcome to the JL world, hope you like yours as much as I like mine. Had a TJ before had loads of fun with it. Enjoy the rig and the Island
  5. Difficult Choices

    I would trust the Willy's dealer almost as much as I trust a rattle snake going over my boot.
  6. How much is this gonna cost me?

    You and I both understand one big red wire Positive, one big black wire Negative, when both end up on Positive bad things happen
  7. How much is this gonna cost me?

    Great to hear your problem is fixed. Next issue is to find out what went wrong when hooking the winch into the system but DON'T hook it back up until you know the issue for sure
  8. Difficult Choices

    If you already know you can fit the Rubi in your budget you will not have regrets, The Willy's dealer I would be skeptical of because of their past performance. The Willy's is a fine Jeep but with one you are getting all you want with the other you are accepting less than you want and I think...
  9. Do you all have bow like this with level spacers?

    I have Teraflex 2" front and 1" rear on my JLUR that have been on for many months and my springs have no issues of any kind. Still have stock track bars and shocks and close to 18K miles
  10. Stupid things non-Wrangler owners say

    Jeep owners know that in order to chip the paint on another jeep you have to get through Tires, Wheels, Steel Bumpers, and rock sliders in most cases. Those jeeps already proudly where their off road battle scares but the drivers want other Jeepers to earn theirs the right way.
  11. Stupid things non-Wrangler owners say

    Those are the kind of parents that hover over their children 24/7 and wonder why at 15 they can't handle the stress of school and at 30 still live with mommy and daddy.
  12. Stupid things non-Wrangler owners say

    Branding, Jeeps are kind of like Harleys, If a Harley rider pulls into a bar and grill where there are several different type bikes he would not be caught dead parking next to a BMW if another Harley was there. Same with Jeeps, you are just drawn to them by force of habit. I personally think it...
  13. Best break-in period for a JL?

    Unfortunately unless you ordered it and are sure that no one else has driven it than it is more than likely to late to worry about with all the dealership studs and customers test driving it. The good news is, it is not a boat motor and a lot more forgiving.
  14. Are Steel Bumpers Even Worth It?

    I prefer steel holding my winch. As for front end sag I have an LOD mid width bumper and a 12K winch and my sag is maybe I/4". Ride did not change at all. You can do the job with plastic but if you ever really need to pull you might wish you had steel.
  15. 13.2 mpg with 37s....

    Let me see if I got this right. I buy a vehicle with the aero dynamics of a brick. When I get it home I rip off the plastic bumper, throw on a big metal bumper and that bad to the bone winch. Then I take off the small light street tires put a 4 inch lift, lockers, disconnects, and my brag factor...
  16. Florida Roll Call!

    Recovery gear is never a bad thing. Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.
  17. How much is this gonna cost me?

    Do a google search for checking the high current fuse bar. The fuse bar may not show obvious signs of damage but still could be bad. I would also isolate the batteries and charge them up to full voltage then hook them back up before proceeding.
  18. Florida Roll Call!

    Just another beautiful morning in North West FL. Looking forward to the three day weekend, might have to go out and get dirty
  19. Service bulletin on steering problem.

    I believe it was air in the system that self bleeds. I checked it again this morning and it is still on the full line. The great thing is I never has any mess to clean up, the dealership that installed mine has done many and have their system down. I did not have a single drop of fluid anywhere...
  20. steering damper replacement

    There are several Death Wobble treads on the forum you can search. Some people have been lucky and have found a relatively simple fix but others chase it for a long time. Bent wheel, out of balanced tires, ball joints, tie rods, alignment, all can play into it. I hope the stabilizer helps.
