I just installed the Qtec Premium 2" receiver hitch with wiring kit. I looked on line at other vendor's install instructions while waiting for mine to arrive. Qtec was FAR easier - no need to drop...

Better option is Quadratec - they sell a wiring kit that's just like OEM - far better than most others out there - and reasonably priced. P/N is 92015.8001

Hmmm, zero to 60 in 7.5, standing 1/4 mile in 16 seconds, top speed 100.


Not sure, but I think a stock 2012 JKU would outrun the hemi. Was Car & Driver being too gentle in their test runs?

Gotta agree that Jeep doesn't really do anything to clarify the difference. FWIW, part numbers for the shocks on Sport, Sahara and Rubicon are all three different. Sport (and Sport S) have a smaller...

And the other 10% is what, getting towed behind the F350?

Good guess. Katzkin makes two different leathers for the '12 Wrangler - one for seats with the side airbag, one for seats without. The former has a tag on the outside shoulder that says 'airbag' but...

Dealer discouraged me from doing it and then quoted me a price of $1,000 - which REALLY discouraged me from doing it. I've seen others on the forum with prices in the $400-600 range.

The rail car won't move until it's full. They may be waiting for other Jeeps to come off the line that are going to the same destination as yours.

He's getting a new 2-door, springs came off a JKU. Just a guess, but doesn't the JKU have stiffer springs?

Bill,
Try that when you get a chance - I'm not 100% sure it's correct. If you're stopped, bump left puts you into 1st. I think one bump right while still sitting still may put you back into D. Don't...

If your auto trans comes down to 4th on a hilly section and you want to lock it there, I can think of only two options. One is to bump it down to 3rd and then quickly bump back up to 4th. The bump...
