I mean I do not understand why some people buy wranglers. I mean this guy complains about everything from window switch location to completing the steering of the Jeep to be a tundra .I mean doesn't he know that love solid axles are different than IDF. Here is his video but fair warning, you may yell at the guy throughout.

Yeah, he's kind of funny. He does love Jeeps, though. I think he'll warm up to it as he mods it and fixes some things. I don't think it occurred to him that he might take the front doors off while leaving the rears on. If the window switches were on the doors, he'd wind up complaining about that.

He should be ignored for his outfit alone. I don't know how much of an appetite JL owners here have for fame-hungry, aspiring You-Tubers spouting their dislikes about the JL. Many of us have already seen just about all of them & all that shows up now is recycled material.

I can't speak for all, but I lean towards content that's educational & informative, similar to installation & instruction put out by @American Jeeper .

No viewing interest here...Thanks, but no thanks.

Most are worthy criticisms and he does state overall, he likes it (video forthcoming of course). But to me, most importantly, he/that channel put out good tutorials and I’ve definitely learned some things from him so... click bait? Yeah, welcome to the internet. :ontheloo:

Well, of course, everyone is entitled to their own opinions. However these complaints seem like first world problems to me, and nothing serious. I just did 60+ miles on a rough-offroad adventure and was just simply amazed how quiet and stable my new JLU was as I left to head home on the Highway @ 75pmh. So to each his/her own.

I feel like this is important too. People bitch about “I spent $50k and it makes a funny noise!” Yeah? Well, the trails and obstacles I drove through less than 24 hours ago.... very FEW vehicles would have survived, let alone enjoyed it and asked for more. You’re buying a Jeep!

the issue with these videos is that the jl could be perfect, but some with a motive to make money will bash it, so I dont even bother looking at them, because if you ignore them they go away. so is he bitching about stupid, the usual echo chamber about bad welds( read it was limited to about 70 bad frames but reading the interweb here you would assume 90% had bad welds LOL instead of 70 out of 220k units made last model yr 2018), or doesnt he like where they put switches, yawn.
dont feed the fake news trolls

Thank you for the kind words. I found it insteresting that what is probably the biggest Jeep YT channel put out that video. To each their own though and they have some viewers, so someone obviously likes it. I can definitely say you won’t see me in that getup any time soon.

@Jo's Jeep … Once I saw the shorts, I was done before I thought about hitting "play.' I thought I was the only one with that pair & at that moment I had zero interest in the content or the visual similarities.

That was my first thought too. I didn't bother clicking on it so can't be sure but I just assumed it was a parody of the other vid.
