Added some trail rax to the passenger side. I plan on doing the Maximus 3 rack and ladder for the driver side.

Nice looking Jeep.

Are you running a trackbar relocation bracket on the rear?

Looking at lift on my diesel and curious if there was any issues with the trackbars from gas JL's parts or are they specfic?

I got my Jeep lifted at 1500 miles so not even close to being broken in but I was getting about 27 highway. 24 city and that’s driving really easy on throttle. Post lift I’m seeing about 25-26 highway and 22-24 city. I have a short commute and I find that it definitely consumes more fuel when the engine is cold and is also sluggish. Runs a million times better once it’s at temp. I’d say the 37”s cost me 3-4 mpg’s
Your Jeep is really looking good! I’ve been contemplating the Diesel also but my commute is only 7 miles to work. No experience with Diesels other than I know I’ve heard they like to run. So wondered what your thoughts were owning one with short drives all the time.

i'm really happy with the diesel, if i had to do it again i would without hesitation get the diesel again. That being said i do feel like the diesel runs night and day different once up to temp. i park in the garage so it never gets super cold but i would imagine on a cold winter day id want it warmed up before driving. i usually give it a couple minutes before i head out in the morning and really baby it until it's up to temp. Also from a mileage standpoint does 10x better when warm. i'm mostly city and get just over 24 mpg on the 37's. i can't imagine any other motor would get that on 37's. I'm very happy even on my short commutes.

Nice build. I have the same Jeep (2021 White Rubicon Diesel) which I may shamelessly copy a few things on. Love the white dash trim. Not that I have a problem with Rubi red, but it doesn't match anything else on the white Jeep.

Are you still feeling 3.73 will carry the day or will you regear. Right now I think I want to do 4.56, but I just finished everything, except the suspension and added 500-600lbs an Jeep doesn't notice it.

I have 3300 miles on the jeep. i feel like these motors are night and day after some mileage. At first with the 37's i really felt as though it might need the regear. now i can honestly say i don't think it does at all. 4.56 i think would be too much.

Glad to hear that. I just picked up my diesel this week and have been in the 35/37 dilemma. 24mpg on 37’s is tremendous.

Did you install it yet? I ran into an issue with the small plate bracket. Existing screw is in the way and I don't know how to get it out. Did you have the same problem?
