Smile My 2011 Jeep Wrangler Sahara!

This is my 2011 Jeep Wrangler with a couple extras!

1.Keenwood screen
2.Valentine Radar Hardwired
3.Kicker L7 10"
4. 20% Tint all around

Exhuast
Flowmaster with roush tips

It sounds amazing but soon will add a cold air intake.

As of right now, I hear a annoying squeaking noise from the rear left driver side which is hear-able outside and the dealership pretty much said I need an axle replacement or something near that. The wheel is moving like a wobble motion side-to-side but not enough to effect the driving but to produce noise. The axle cost 1500 and am not trying to deal with that. If anyone has ideas or suggestions, please help!

As far as that, the only things I plan on adding before summer starts is,
1. HID
2. Black Vinyl Wrap Hood
3. Transformer Badge

Nice jeep, you did a great job with it

How do you like your Valentine radar detector , I was thinking of getting one , not for my Jeep, but for my 911. Are they as effective as they say they are?

Every car in my family has a valentine. My turbo 997 has it as well.

As far as there performance, it has saved me every time. The distance, the direction and even the different bands that its all capable is worth the price!

If you get one, do get it hardwired. No one likes the wire look!

V1 is the best but....with the way police use radar today they are a 50/50 proposition at best. 10 years ago when I first got mine lots of highways had grass medians and police/troopers ran moving radar (driving coming at you). That gave you alot more time to react since the detector would alert to radar transmissions meant for cars in front of you.

With the move towards concrete and cable barriers dividing medians, most are hiding over hills and around curves ambush style and using instant on radar these days. You crest a hill and they hit you from a few hundred feet. You don't stand a chance. Also, lot's more laser these days. Again, if they are pointing at you when they pull the trigger....you guessed it, you don't stand a chance.

So, the V1 is the best detector you can buy. The problem is that safety improvements to infrastructure, and instant on radar have made using one for speeding difficult. The fact is if you consistently exceed the speed limit you will eventually get busted, detector or not. In the age of $250 plus tickets, points on your driving record and the potential for insurance premiums to increase I vote for leaving a few minutes earlier if your really in a hurry.

That being said, if your just looking for a cool toy/thief magnet, by all means get one. It is fun to know when you are reflecting some microwaves!

You know what else, radars have started to become a trend. V1 being a top of the line gadget, everyone wants it.

Nonetheless, when I am driving my Wrangler, I am cruising and just use the V1 to know when I have a cop near me.

Thanks for your responses(guys), you make some great points, that I was not aware of,I think I'm going to pass on the v1. I don't drive fast very often,but when I do, I'm always wishing I had one.

I have been messing around with eight (mainly) and six cylinder engines for 40 years. Never heard a good sounding exhaust on a six. Would have to hear it in person to believe it. Sorry.

Wow!

There's another guy on this forum who has a Jeep JUST like yours! I mean, what're the odds of that? His isn't quite as sweet, though.

I don't know what your implying!! But if your saying I copied someone else work or took someone else's work, your wrong. Look at the name, it's the same as mine. This is my first day on here and I posted the same thing twice by mistake.

I took a video of my start up and a couple of revs. Here is a YouTube video of it! Check it out and let me know what you think. If you can, turn on 1080p HD when watching.

In regard to your axle squeek & wobble, maybe' it is just a bearing so best to take the wheel off & check, it could be dangerous & needs to be at least checked out. If it is a bearing it can chew up the inside of the axle tube & then cost a lot of $
