I definitely have not driven 7 miles since the sensors were removed. I will give that a try. Sorry, but I am not used to the liberal nonsense the government tries to impose on its citizens.

TPMS question

I have been able to do it on gravel with 4.10 gears on the stock 29" tires, except the clutch was fully engaged so I wouldn't have to worry about burning the clutch. I was just idling and then hit...

I don't think the 4-door is the death of the Wrangler, because it is essentially the same vehicle as far as capability is concerned with a longer wheelbase. I also don't think they will stop selling...

An electric Wrangler does not have to me an mpg rating because it does not use gasoline. Also, I understand what you are trying to say, but what I am saying is that there is a physical limitation of...

Not that this debate is even a big deal, but I applaud your comment, for everything you said is factually correct and not driven by opinion, besides maybe that last paragraph.

Article is factually incorrect, thus it is a worthless read:

1. Base cost of a Sport is 24k, not 30k
2. EPA ratings for the Wrangler is 21mpg highway, not 15mpg, and personally, I get about 23-24...

Perhaps the vehicles I have driven handle shit on the road as well, but that is irrelevant since the OP says the Wrangler is the worst handling vehicle. My point is that compared to your average car,...

I'm no expert, but the TJ guys usually run 4.88 gears for 35s in the D30 without an issue. From what I have read, the JK D30 has more contact area because the gears spin in the opposite direction as...

He is saying it would be financially unwise to discontinue the Wrangler, regardless of EPA standards.

Gas mileage standards can only do so much. They cannot force Jeep to stop producing the Wrangler, no matter how bad of mileage it gets. It may cause Jeep to have to pay additional taxes, but from a...

My JK is the fastest/best handling vehicle I have driven in my life so far. Now I haven't driven any sports cars, but if the JK handles better than a sports car, that is clearly a poorly made sports...

I was under the impression that the speedometer gear spun with output shaft of the transmission, which is why I thought changing the axle gears would affect the speedometer.

It's hard to say because I am still running the stock 29s. I will have a better impression when I get my 31s installed in late August/early September. Right now the RPMs are pretty high on the...

new gears, speedometer still correct?

I just went to 4.10 gears from 3.21 gears on my '15 JK, and for some reason, my speedometer is still accurate (I compared to my GPS). I asked the guy who installed them, and he said he didn't know...
