  1. Does nobody love bare bones Jeeps anymore?!

    I bought my leftover new 18 JL Sport over the new 19's that were on the lot specifically because it was a bare bones soft top and exactly what I wanted. The only thing I didn't like initially was that it is the 8sp auto, but over time it won me over with it's unobtrusive operation.
  2. Motortrend 2019 JLU Rubicon Long-Term Test Verdict: Not the Year We Expected

    That hit right square in the feels. Have had to say goodbye to a few pups over the years and it never gets easier. I hope my Jeep Dog outlives me, because I don't know if I can go through this again.
  3. Wrangler in the winter?

    That's me! Nice to meet you and good to see you took the Ivanic plunge. Nice rig you have there! I'm not sure how current you are on my situation, but I worked at a well known Canadian Ural dealer for a few years, then moved and worked at a Harley dealer for a couple years before retiring in Feb...
  4. Wrangler in the winter?

    Eastern Ontario, did my first winter last year with a 2dr soft top and had no issues. The heaters in these things are fecking awesome. Just watch out for soft snow when pulling over to go pee...
  5. Everyone hates me......

    Yep, that's been my experience as well. I wave and get a look like "Why is this old guy hitting on me?" in return. However, I've noticed this behaviour is more from the 4dr mall crawlers, the ladies in 2dr's (especially YJ, TJ, JK) always seem to wave back.
  6. Annoying rattle solved for about 4 cents

    Solved part of the rattle issue thanks to this post, the upper cover on the passenger grab handle is now quiet thanks to a small dab of silicone sealant. But I still had a rattle over washboard/gravel roads and it turned out to be the passenger sunvisor chittering against the top of the...
  7. Did you sell your muscle car for a Jeep?

    Nope. But I did buy a 97 C5 Corvette a few weeks ago to share the driveway with my JL.
  8. Vehicle sale regrets?

    My '71 BSA A65T Thunderbolt 650 and my '95 Chevy S10 extended cab.
  9. 2020 Wrangler JL 2 Door best winter tires for Saskatchewan Highway

    Went through an Eastern Ontario winter with a set of Firestone Winterforce, had no issues.
  10. A badge count how many badges do you have for your JL

    I'm single, that's why I have a Jeep, Harley and Corvette. But on the Lake Rated adventure I got my own gitch wet at one point when the waves came in over the door.
  11. A badge count how many badges do you have for your JL

    Well, no official badges as of yet, but it did earn its "Lake Rated" badge a couple weeks ago when it was frollicking about off the shoreline of Lake Ontario...
  12. Post pics of your MUSCLE cars!

    Just put a deposit on this 97 Corvette, if all goes well I'll pick it up on Monday. This is a boyhood dream come true!
  13. Who actually takes their JL offroad?

    I don't go full apeshit mud bog rock crunching with it, but I do take it down as many trails as I can.
  14. What did you name your Jeep JL?

    It's short, stubby, looks a bit awkward and the colour scheme reminded me of a tuxedo, so "Penguin" just seemed apropos...
  15. Things you have learned the Hard way about owning a Jeep.

    If you have the top down and tube doors on when you go to pick up a pizza, place said pizza on the passenger seat with the front of the box facing towards you. If you place it with the front facing the door or the dash, the wind will blow the lid open and the pizza will levitate like a UFO and...
  16. The 2Dr Sport Only Thread

    Cooper AT3's, DV8 boxed step sliders, Aries tube doors, Rugged Ridge trail mirrors, Rugged Ridge sunscreen, rear seat removed and front fender extension delete. Gonna give the VISA a rest now.
  17. ESS Warning Light: Can I Leave Door Harness Unplugged With Doors On?

    Back story: 18 JL, 8sp auto, base model, no options. Drove with the doors off for 4wks, got an ESS warning light after putting them back on. Traced the fault to a bent pin on the left side door harness connector. Straightened the pin, plugged the connector back in, warning light disappeared...
  18. Does anyone actually fold the windscreen down? I don't get it...

    Tried it just to see what it was like. Had a blast, brought back memories of my Army days. Although it doesn't take long to lower the windshield, I probably won't do it very often. Mind you, I said the same thing about taking the doors off and that turned out to be a lie.
  19. Does it look bad if a Jeep has stock wheels with tubular doors?

    It's your Jeep, do it your way. YOU decide if it looks good or bad.
