  1. Autopark Got Me

    I too hate the Autopark feature - when I follow the process to tow my JL behind my coach, the manual says to turn the engine off before shifting into PARK at the end of the multi-step process to put the transfer case in NEUTRAL as req'd to flat tow it. As with every Auto tranny in a...
  2. Mopar Flat Tow Harness arrived

    Hypalon Man - not wanting to steal this thread, but seeing an opportunity to ask someone who has direct experience...I have an RVi3 braking device that I love the design and theory of operation of, but have trouble with the 12 volt male plug disconnecting only momentarily from the supply -...
  3. Mopar Flat Tow Harness arrived

    Glad to hear it! I have set up so many vehicles to tow, either having them done by someone else (dealer, RV shop) or doing it myself, that I am very leery of non-OEM kits and the trouble they can cause with the newest LED lighted vehicles. Since I chose to have the dealer install the OEM kit...
  4. Mopar Flat Tow Harness arrived

    A word of caution, the newer (2020 at least) Jeeps use LED lights and transformers and other electronic wizardry that may (most likely does) make kits like the one DEMCO sells, not suited in that you will have problems with it, if indeed the kit taps into the vehicle lighting system. Kits that...
  5. Best Setup for RV Flat Tow

    My kit from Maximus included the bolts, nuts, and washers, but ironically, one was missing. So I went to the local Fastenal and got Grade 8 hardware. There was no spec for how tight to make them, but since the nut is a locknut, as long as you cinch it down so the adapter can rotate without slop...
  6. Best Setup for RV Flat Tow

    These pins are tractor pins - the diameter is perfect (no slop) and I just drilled a hole in the end to put a lock on so they can't easily be pulled... Found at a local hardware store.
  7. Jeep Almost Got My Family Killed (Battery Issues)

    Never thought about doing this - even though within a week of picking up my then-new '19 Ram and going to Uhaul to rent trailer only to find out the fuse for the towing connector was MISSING, I should be more pessimistic. Will do it as soon as it cools off a little. I push the disengage button...
  8. Best Setup for RV Flat Tow

    Unlike many people think, tow bars do require regular service and they do wear out. BlueOx recommends servicing the towbar every two-years or 10 mi. and they estimate a 75k mi service life if properly maintained. We have had our serviced at these intervals and when that is done, wear parts are...
  9. Jeepney18 - Black 2018 JLUS

    Not sure why the pic didn't show up initially, but now I see what the "Trasharoo" is. Still not 100% sure - some sort of trash receptacle you hang from something/somewhere on or in the Jeep?
  10. Is this a good price?

    If so, then have them take off that $2K on the Trade, and take it off the new price too - that way you pay less taxes.
  11. Jeepney18 - Black 2018 JLUS

    Huh?
  12. Is this a good price?

    Although the math works out pretty well, what you're missing (and we can't tell) is whether or not you're getting a fair price for your trade, because that factors in since it's part of the deal. If you take that out for discussion's sake, the $51K plus fees isn't that great a deal. But if...
  13. 2020 JLUR steering issue

    How about Right AND Wrong? I am one of the lucky ones who's 2020 Rubi drives like a straight axle Jeep, but not dangerously so. Yes, it requires a tad bit more attention when driving to stay straight, but no more than my straight axle Ram. I also have an IFS Ram so can easily tell the difference...
  14. Had some fun at Rowher today

    Cool pic! How tough was to get the Jeep up on that rock?
  15. Best Setup for RV Flat Tow

    ...Our bumper has BlueOx tow bar adapters... We're just coming up on two-years with this system and I could not be happier with the configuration. The BlueOx tow bar adapters, shown below and to the outside of the shackles, are bolted through the bumper directly to the front end of the frame...
  16. Unbelieveable Service (radio issue)

    Having owned over twenty new Dodge/FCA vehicles in the last 17 or so years, I can tell you that the radios are the most common part replaced with a refurbished part in my experience anyway. It always bugs the heck out of me, as one poster noted, that we pay so much for these things and then get...
  17. Please donate your PPE

    Yea, I too have struck out trying to find Clorox Wipes...and I look everywhere...(ditto for the individually wrapped hand sanitizer wipes - "moist towelettes" with alcohol)
  18. 2020 Dark Saddle Leather - Kinda Ugly?

    Actually, you can get a dash other than red on a Rubi, if you have the saddle interior...I have it.
  19. SiriusXM Guardian™ subscription???

    I too have had vehicles formerly owned by me that I could still track even after someone else bought it! Crazy. I called multiple times to try and get them removed, and only after I pointed out it wouldn't go over too well if I started one remotely right when whenever who owned one had their...
  20. SiriusXM Guardian™ subscription???

    Ha! Not knowing individual "traditions", I missed that that was your sign-off! Thanks for clarifying. I never give them a card for the music service, but even after going up the chain, I cannot get them to do the Guardian unless I give them a card. But other than this recent offer on one of my...
