  1. Reaching my breaking point... may consider trading my JLUR

    Sorry to hear about your issues... I think I saw this was aftermarket? I've had an '18 JLUR with 35s for over 2 years and 27k miles. Regularly drive I-40 at 90 plus following traffic down to the coast. I've never had an issue except dead battery and rear defrost connector falling off. I'm bad...
  2. Jeep snobbery - RANT

    On my 6th or 7th Jeep. Never seen what the OP is talking about. You have snobs in all groups. Surround yourself with better people...ignore the rest...
  3. JL Bikini Tops?

    Yeah...yeah...well, when you sell the house and buy a downtown condo and only have 2 assigned parking spots now taking the top off becomes a little more challenging...
  4. JL Bikini Tops?

    SpiderWebShade JL4D Whew...just finished installing the SpiderWebShade JL4D (JL 4Door) on my Rubicon. Let me say right up front...You do NOT have to remove the wipers and fold the windshield down. You also do not have to remove the hard top. Otherwise this is a two person install. You will need...
  5. Show us your Bikes

    That is my next bike...KTM XCF-500.
  6. Can dealer refuse to work on Jeep because I didn’t buy there?

    I moved out to Chatham County in North Carolina a few years back. I had just purchased a new Ford F-250 Diesel and was in in need of warranty work. I had the truck towed to Welford Harris Ford in Siler City for service. They told me since I didn't buy the truck there, they would not service it...
  7. Aftermarket LEDs quit working

    Thanks. When I checked with both Tazer and SuperChips last they did not have an option for headlights. They only had options for fog and running lights. Are you sure you have an option for LED headlights to be turned on and not just running or fog?
  8. Aftermarket LEDs quit working

    My JLUR came with non LED headlights. I had LEDs installed and they worked for a while. Now they come on and flicker and then go off. I've taken it back to the shop that did them. It is a high end audio and aftermarket company that deals in many exotics and they appear to be pretty...
  9. ESS: The Heart of the Matter

    The problem is after the warranty, it is no longer FCA's's mine. They don't build parts to last forever. It is common sense that if you keep starting and stopping a motor there is more wear on parts. There used to be wording to that effect in Owner Manuals..."avoid driving the car...
  10. Does anyone actually like start-stop

    Yeah, I know. However, they could make the button so the ESS stays off and doesn't reset when the vehicle is stopped and started.
  11. Does anyone actually like start-stop

    I would like it more if it were an option you could activate with the button push vs having it forced on me.
  12. Track bar frame weld issue recall! [Updated with official UA5 recall notice w/ repair procedure]

    Bean counters have figured out the risk / cost and decided in the long run it is cheaper for the company to risk lawsuits than try and fix the problem now on all the suspect Jeeps. There is already a law firm reaching out to owners to file a class action lawsuit because of stuff like this. One...
  13. Track bar frame weld issue recall! [Updated with official UA5 recall notice w/ repair procedure]

    Wouldn't it be cheaper all the way around for FCA to just produce (or buy) a "Rusty's bracket" and bolt it on all the Jeeps suspected on the list just to be safe? I can't see them re welding these in the field for less.
  14. Track bar frame weld issue recall! [Updated with official UA5 recall notice w/ repair procedure]

    My understanding is they cannot sell any car that is on the list. The dealer showed me a "Stop Sale" order by FCA for any vehicle on the list for the time being.
  15. Track bar frame weld issue recall! [Updated with official UA5 recall notice w/ repair procedure]

    After getting the notice on my MOPAR app that my vehicle was part of the recall, I made an appointment for this morning at my dealer. I assumed they had already been instructed by FCA as to what to look for and what to do. This was an incorrect assumption. When I got there, the dealer was...
  16. Track bar frame weld issue recall! [Updated with official UA5 recall notice w/ repair procedure]

    So what does this mean? Is mine effected? What the hell is "Incomplete, but repair parts not available" mean?
  17. Will Tazer Chip help with MPG?

    I've used tuners extensively in the past, on my gas vehicles, my diesel truck, and my motorcycles. They do work with caveats. Cars are tuned for emissions, not for performance from the factory. A tuner "can" provide you with additional performance, but you have to give up something in return...
  18. What is this? Where does it go?

    Hmm...Let me check in the morning. I was thinking it had to be something around the Freedom Top or the doors since that is all I messed with.
  19. Driving on Sand and question on larger tires

    I have 35s and just air down as others have said on sand and they work great.
