    Today I did the jeep wave.....I waved goodbye to my 2018 Sahara. After fighting with FCA since last March (11 months) about crappy steering and after multiple steering boxes, dampeners, track bars, alignment, tire pressures and whatever else we could suggest, it was time to stick a knife in it and call it done.


    For those who said, I could never fight FCA and win, and they have more money than me and they will string it out until I gave up........you were dead wrong !


    I was very sad since other than the Walmart shopping cart syndrome it was a great, great vehicle. I enjoyed it so much after much test driving and shopping I picked up a 2020 Rubicon. Minimal out of pocket cost but an upgraded jeep and 2 model years newer with zero miles. All the modifications (mostly cosmetic) easily transferred over to the new one. And I can now change my avatar from the infamous shopping cart to a real vehicle and do a new jeep wave from the seat of a firecracker red JLUR

    You know I've heard people say that you can't lock the soft top in the down position with the Tuffy enclosure. So I was not expecting it to be able to be locked down when I dropped my roof for the first time with the Tuffy. To my surprise I've been able to lock it every time I dropped it.

    What he means is, if you don’t post a picture, you can’t prove it really happened. He’s just asking for a pic of the new Jeep. Let’s see those pics. ;)

    It's a joke. Actually I posted a smiley but apparently didn't do it correctly. Just wanted to see the new Jeep :)

    Replaced the front bumper on my wife's 2020 Willy's... It was a week old when Bambi tried to beat her across the road!!
    Buddy had a NIB XRC that I got for $200.
    Wasn't the bumper I planned to run, but the price was right!

    Car wash and vacuum, much needed cleaning...then bought more parts.

    Mishimoto intercooler pipe
    GFB DV+
    Front Steel Bumper with skid plate
    Warn winch guard and warn winch plate
    Rear Steel Bumper
    Rubicon shocks and springs 61/62 90/91

    I just have to stop by the dealership and get the longer LCAs from the Mopar 2" Lift Kit then a good ol' weekend of installation. Still on the fence about installing the rear steel bumper though...bought it as part of the set. Might consider selling it, we'll see.
