Let's Get Some Facts First

This discussion is interesting--and one's sympathy has to go out to those who have lost vehicles to fires--but let's not jump to confusions.

Unless we know how many Jeeps catch fire each year and...

Back to the OP's question:

Sorry, but there aren't any good Jeep magazines nowadays.

The only magazine I know of dedicated to Jeeps is Jp, and it's a juvenile production, both in layout and...

Note: The word "Jeep" isn't derived from "G.P." (General Purpose), which, contrary to rumor, actually isn't what the vehicle was called by the military or by its World War II manufacturers.

In normal highway driving, you won't notice much difference if your swaybar is disconnected. But if you have to make a sudden avoidance maneuver or turn tightly at high speed, you very well might...

It doesn't interfere with storage area

There's only so much you can pile up in the "trunk" of a JK, particularly is you have something like the Tuffy Tailgate Security Enclosure. Pile stuff too high, and it will fall out before you can...

They seem perfectly fine to me. Usually I listen to classical music on Sirius, and the fidelity is good.

I'll grant you your hand-on-the-hood test, but it's not particularly relevant to my point, which was that any color will make for a hot interior on a hot day. A black vehicle may be hotter inside...

Well, sometimes

I find the intermediate settings to be inconsistent. Sometimes they blend the neighboring vents, sometimes they turn off the air entirely.

Is any color really cooler or hotter?

When it comes to clothing for hot summer days, white will keep you cooler than black, but clothing rests against your skin. Your Jeep's exterior doesn't, and I wonder whether the color of that...

I go by percentage

I'm creeping up on my arbitrary limit for aftermarket stuff: 50% of what I paid for the 2012 JK.

(I can rationalize because, as of December, we don't have a mortgage any longer.)

Plexus

I used to have a motorglider with a plexiglass canopy. The last thing you want on a canopy is scratches, since they can blind you to oncoming planes. Someone recommended Plexus to me, and I used it...

At first I was thinking of Dozer. Then I saw a Dozer at the dealer. My instant thought was: Yellow Cab. I knew I would be stuck with that image forever if I purchased a Dozer.

Then I thought of...

My oldest item is 1,847 years old

I think I have the oldest human artifact mentioned so far in this thread: It's a first-class relic of St. Justin Martyr, who was beheaded in Rome in A.D. 165 by order of the urban prefect Junius...

Nice photo of my Jeep--thanks! The GoPro videos were mixed: a few good segments, but the housing had a rattle so the sound wasn't good. If I get time, I'll try to edit the files and see if anything...

What, me worry?

Maybe all of you live in a tougher area than I do.

I've never heard of any Jeeper around here (San Diego) having shackles stolen. I can't say it hasn't happened, but I imagine that other parts...

Living and driving in San Diego, I don't have an opinion about which tires are better for snow and ice, but I can say that the KM2s are far quieter than I expected them to be--nearly as quiet as the...

How to Stop Hi-Lift Foot Rattle?

Yesterday I bolted my new Hi-Lift jack to my new LoD tire carrier. Each part of the jack seems secure, except for the foot, which is attached to the jack body only with a cotter pin. The foot jostles...

I guess I'm the exception

I phoned on November 30 and haven't received the manual.

I'll call against Tuesday. Maybe things will work better in the new year.

Sales info sometimes insufficient

I had to return a rack to Quadratec because it wouldn't fit anything larger than 32" tires; I now have 35" tires. The advertising copy said nothing about fitment, so I presumed (wrongly) that the...

How can I get a SERVICE manual?

For my 2002 TJ I purchased a Service Manual from Chrysler. The manual is about 1,500 oversized pages. It was intended for service technicians, not regular owners. It's a how-to-fix-it book with many...
