Going into day 4 of having my Jeep in the dealership...Service shifter error kept popping up. Dealership ordered a part that took 3 weeks to come in. Quick install for them on Friday but error came back Friday afternoon. Luckily I have a loner Wrangler, but it doesn’t have all the extras I paid for on mine. Anyone else have this service shifter error? Apparently it is common on Cherokees, but this was the first they saw it on a JL. This sucks because I don’t even have 5k miles on it yet.

Installed the Rough Country Front/Rear seat covers for $160ish shipped.

Very tight fit, made of wet suit materials.

Install was probably much easier as I always keep my doors off and Jeep in the garage. Not sure how it would have been with the doors on though.

Great option for seat protection on a budget in my opinion.

Thanks man! Yeah I was looking at all the option and thought I’ll just go cheap as most options are $400-$500... I found these for $160 and they feel like they’ll last a lifetime haha. They aren’t fancy but neither is my rig so whatever lol

I still spent big money though because I used the money I “saved” and bought the front/rear Rugged Ridge Tube Doors w/mirrors. Had I purchased a $500 dollar set of seat covers AND the RR tube doors my wife would have killed me, so it’s a win/win lolol

Thank you very much both. It’s starting to look like 4wheelparts for most folks. I’m hoping they’ll be educated enough to tell me what size to get if I don’t want to lift my Sahara (for now). Hopefully they’ll know about offsets etc. I don’t want it to stick out too far.

Am thinking a ~33” tire, at 275 18’s. What you think?
If you don't lift it, not for sure the 33" tire will fit properly - I know they work for the stock Rubicon, but not sure about the Sahara.. thinking you may need a 2" lift..

Finished making and installing a drop down Tailgate shelf. Light and simple, under $25 and all the stuff was from Lowe’s.. I think this is only good for 25 lbs. For now this will do for a place to set my tackle box when lake side at my favorite fishing spot. If I end up using it alot or need a heavier duty on,e I'll probably just buy one from Outback.

I’m pretty sure a 33” tire will fit on a stock Sahara. I’ve seen a few posts and threads on here. Maybe others can chime in or correct me if I’m wrong.

Did this...for assurance.

I’ve never heard of a 5 tire rotation, but it makes sense now that I think about it. What’s the rotation pattern?
