I second the suggestion to deal with Jeep (or even FCA). If a waiter mistreats you, you don't argue with waiter, you ask to speak with the maitre d'hotel or captain (or manager). Same happens here,...

Enter a simple fix: an after-market charger trailer with a generator. Pull into camp, hook her up.



Exactly.

So I say: forget the hybrid, go full electric for Wrangler. It's going to be...

My 2010 has the same exact problem and the nozzle is not adjustable. It was adjustable on other cars that I had before, usually by a way of a litte ball with a channel. The ball could be turned to...

Welding in Albuquerque

Guys, do we have a recommended welder in ABQ, who'd take a small job and do it well? Looks like everyone wants to do a massive build project for several thousand dollars. Which is understandable from...

I paid $1,384 for 4: $739 for the tires at TireRack and $646 to get them installed. The real kicker is the TPMS (of which I had 5). Supposedly they must be replaced, not just batteries swapped out....

Indeed, the glass has to be clean to begin with. Being the only owner on my 2010, I did not have to resort to winegar, only Windex.

The best blades for a 2010 JK that I was able to find are PIAA...

I would buy FJ or Xterra. For some reason Tacoma is uncomfortable: its cab is too low. Surprisingly, FJ is much better.

I could also drive an F-150 if that's all we had left.

That's what I ended doing too, since 2010. But I drove my daughter's Honda Fit for a week and it was so nice to be able to drive comfortably that it renewed my zeal in modding the seat. Also,...

The stabilizer is mainly insurance against the time you hit Death Wobble. Note that it cannot cure DW, just save you from hitting a tree when it happens, perhaps.

I see there is some interest, so here's a couple of updates in my 4-year-long project.

Mike, welcome to the forum (belatedly).

TrueDelta was a large reason why I bought my JK back in 2010. Back then, FJ had about half of the repair frequency of JK. Or, you could say it was twice as...

It's a federal ban, not just CARB's. Was this way since 2009. I bought last of the old stock preban cans in August 2009.
