Thanks Michael and Hooz

Pulled out the owners manual and as Michael pointed out it recommends 5w-20. So i went ahead and took the 5w-30 back and exchanged it for the 5w-20 (just because it's still under warranty). Read my...

WTF. I swear i read here the 2014 JK uses 5w-30 oil.

So i'm getting ready to change my oil and as i loosen the oil filler cap it says 5w-20. Like my title here states, i swear i read here that we're supposed to run 5w-30. So what's the difference and...

Service manager had no clue

went to the local Jeep dealer today and asked the service manager if he had been having problems with cracked oil cooler housings. He didn't have a clue. Said he had not heard of this being an...

Like my Vector Offroad UFO's

After replacing my windshield bump stops with the Vector UFO's, i noticed an improvement in performance and MPG right away. Similar to what their website claims. :whistling: Just kidding.

Owners Manual is no help

I've been looking thru the hard copy of my owners manual and it has no info on how to change the oil/oil filter. There's not even any photographs indicating what is what under the hood. So let me...

Thanks Copperhead 1, jp2611 and AZAG08

Thanks for the reply guys. AZAG08, in your last photo with the arrow, is that the oil filler cap? Surely the oil filter is on the bottom of the engine. I need to pop the damn hood tomorrow and...

Back on the Subject of the original post.

I need to get my oil changed for the first time on my 2014 JK. I don't trust the dealers. I've always had a local mechanic here in town and in business for years do my work. He works on a little...

Somebody needs to have their eyes checked. In both of your photos you can't park worth a CRAP.

Bobp. Where did you get the rear overhead molle rack? I have a Raingler rear overhead cargo net, but it droops when loaded and interferes with my vision out the rear.

is that a palm tree decal?

I swear that the decal on the side of your jeep looks like the palm tree from the Afrika Korps. Yes?

Just doesn't look right

That Aries bumper and so many others look like something that came off of one of my son's Gundam Action Figures. Like 4 door Wranglers, they just don't look right. :hide: To each his own though.
