I would not add any extra weight to the stock carrier. It is really thin and light. A bike carrier will be 10-15 lbs and a mountain bike will be 25-35 more, and hanging out there. I went with the...

In the Wrangler world, OEM seems to be the best filter. The K&N, if made by Champion, is certainly a decent filter though. It is those oiled air filters by K&N that I avoid like the plague.

I generally drive my V8 4Runner. I like driving the JK but I prefer to put most of the miles on the 4Runner. It is quicker, quieter, and smoother, and the wifey prefers the ride. When I run around...

Cooper bought Mickey Thompson Tires in the early 2000s. Pretty sure they make the Mickey Thompson and Dick Cepek tires, as well as the Mastercaft ones. I think they just made the tread between the...

I believe they are made by Cooper and run a bit short like all Coopers. They are a twin to the Dick Cepek Extreme Country, right? The tread looks good for the rocks and dirt and they should clear...

Nice to see a few cyclists here. That's great. Cycling in southern France would be amazing!!! As far as Lance goes, I think it is common knowledge that the top guys and teams were doping. He...

You guys are not that far apart but I suggest the Carmax route too. Heck, sell it to Carmax if you have to- sell both to Carmax if they are interested. They will sell the Jeep at invoice or under,...

One other thing- if you fill it, then go drive for 5 mins, you may be able to get another 1.5 gallons in it. I could do this on my JK and also on the JKU. Seems like the tank does not properly fill...

The Trucklites were not for me. The beam pattern was inferior to the JWS. I returned the TLs and got the JWS. The TLs just need a lot of work. Granted, I am picky but I have mountain bike lights...

I have driven the 4.0 and the 3.8 before making the decision to bury a new JK with the 3.6 and then traded that for a 2014 JKU. The 3.6 is just nicer to drive though it is no powerhouse. It has...

I no longer have the stock bumper but it make no difference. The Teraflex carrier I have, holds the tire pretty close to the tailgate. Unless you tire is carried much higher, you will need the...

If you have 35s, you will likely need the 1UPUSA locking/tightening extension. Great rack...I have used several tray-style racks- Yakima, Thule T2, Saris Cycle On Pro, and Kuat NV....this one trumps...

I think the chart is pretty accurate. With 35" MTRs, my 4.10s are not adequate in these hilly and mountainous areas and at altitude. My 35" MTRs now measure 34.25" after half life and at 26-28 PSI....

Not sure but compare the specs to the 520. If it is much thicker (vertically) it may not. That is probably the limitation. You could call the company too.

I'll never live somewhere that has real mud. I despise it that much...along with ticks and chiggers, of course.

I left my old cooler at the dealership in the trash but I do have a picture if needed- it is quite evident that the corner seal was leaking oil.

Just turning that dark is normal and does nothing to the oil in general. It does not mean your oil is full of contaminants or that its protective abilities for wear and lubrication has gone away.

Nice. I also ordered my 2014, primarily because none of the lot ones had side airbags. Well, that and I wanted an engine block heater and no auto climate control. :)

Yeah, I believe that 4.10 option used to be included with the Rubicon build. I did not pay extra for it on the 2012. I did on the 2014. I guess they figured out that many wanted it and why not...
