  1. Regret 37s?

    Nope, no re-gearing necessary. I can still see the Jeep in 8th gear on the highway, so I personally don't see the need. There are many voices on the forum that will disagree but I have zero performance issues with 37's and a two inch Mopar lift.
  2. Smittybilt JL HD Pivot Tire Carrier (7743) - Install / Review / Comments

    I tried using a pry bar, but could not get the tailgate to stay up lomg enought to tighten and torque the bolts. Trying using plywood or multiple layers of cardboard the length of the tailgate.
  3. Smittybilt JL HD Pivot Tire Carrier (7743) - Install / Review / Comments

    When I initially installed the Mopar hinge reinforcement along with the Teraflex HD carrier on my 2018 JLUR two weeks ago, when I first opened the tailgate after lifting the 37" tire, the gate noticeably dropped and scrapped along the top of my aftermarket bumper. I then set about removing the...
  4. ETA of Alpha Tailgate Reinforcement

    As it turns out the Teraflex HD spare tire carrier for the JL is compatible with the Mopar hinge reinforcement kit. I had one laying around from before I ditched the spare. I intend to use it until they release the Teraflex hinge reinforcement product. I installed both last weekend on my JLUR...
  5. Storage space/shelf in cargo compartment

    Actually, the idea of making it "removable" i.e. able to be easily removed makes a lot of of sense and wasn't in my original thinking......but it is now.... Thanks!
  6. Storage space/shelf in cargo compartment

    My 2018 JLUR's cargo area is getting a bit crowded with the various tools and accessories that I like to carry. I have looked at a few of the aftermarket drawer/shelf/storage solutions that are out there, but either the price tag is too much (ARB) or the functionality is not what I'm looking...
  7. Jacking up a lifted Jeep

    Where did you get this cradle for the bottle jack?
  8. ARB 1 gallon air tank install location

    Title says it all. I am finishing my install of the ARB twin compressor using the M.O.R.E. bracket in the cargo compartment and now I'm thinking about adding the 1 gallon tank, so I can utilize some additional power tools and such. But I am scratching my head on a location to mount the tank...
  9. ARB 1 Gallon Air Tank mounting location

    Title says it all. I am finishing my install of the ARB twin compressor using the M.O.R.E. bracket in the cargo compartment and now I'm thinking about adding the 1 gallon tank, so I can utilize some additional power tools and such. But I am scratching my head on a location to mount the tank...
  10. Jacking up a lifted Jeep

    I tested my factory scissor jack last night. At full extended length it just barely touches the axle tube. I'd need a good four to six inches of additional height under the jack to get the tire off the ground.
  11. Jacking up a lifted Jeep

    Wow $72 for a glorified bunch of wood blocks.......Thank you, but I'll likely cut a 2 x 10 in the garage and pile a few pieces up.
  12. Jacking up a lifted Jeep

    I'm with you on this one. I also purchased the Dominion Offroad mount for the HiLift that attaches inside the Jeep up near the roof on the roll bar. https://www.dominionoffroad.com/best_jeep_jl_hi-lift_mount/index.htm I found it on Amazon for a bit cheaper.
  13. Jacking up a lifted Jeep

    Agreed. I ordered the base plate for it too, and both my bumpers have the cut out specifically for the HiLift.
  14. Jacking up a lifted Jeep

    I'm sure others will comment, but I always jack on the frame itself. The pinch seam is just where the body panels are merged and "pinched" at the bottom. I have a set of Rock Slide Engineering drop down step/sliders that mount through the pinch seam, but their weight is carried by three...
  15. Jacking up a lifted Jeep

    Where did you find this product?
  16. Jacking up a lifted Jeep

    The wheel tire combo is 100 pounds plus maybe close to 110. When I first mounted the Mopar hinge kit and the Teraflex spare tire carrier, despite my precautions I noticed a slight droop of the tailgate. Once I had the tire on it, the bottom of the tailgate was dragging across the top of the...
  17. Jacking up a lifted Jeep

    I have a 2018 JLUR with a Mopar 2" lift and 37" tires. I am planning a long 1/2 cross country trip in the JL and just purchased the Teraflex HD spare tire carrier (using an old Mopar hinge reinforcement kit, until Teraflex releases their hinge kit). I had beeing running the Jeep as my daily...
  18. Regret 37s?

    I was the second poster to this original thread in 2018. After reading here and doing my research, I installed 37" BFG KO2's on KMD Rockstar wheels along with a Mopar 2" inch lift kit. I also replaced the front and read bumpers and when doing so, I removed the small section at the bottom rear...
  19. Question on Rusty's tire carrier/hinge reinforcement

    Thank you for the great info. Bob
  20. ETA of Alpha Tailgate Reinforcement

    So your JL tire carrier is not compatible with the Mopar hinge reinforcement brackets?
