Other factors are length of trips, and temperature. I often make several short city trips per day, spaced hours apart. Combine that with the cold weather and I'm in the 11's as well, regardless of...

Why does it only apply to the 2013 JK if Wranglers had the WA580 from 2012 onwards?

I also don't have any of the very specific conditions listed below that the TSB addresses for Wranglers, so it...

It doesn't get much safer than a defensively driven, lifted JKU with steel armor all around, as long as you don't hit anything solid like a concrete wall ;)

I rarely do any highway driving so I'd go for 4.88's with my 33's. That should give it some more pep around town :D

I would be willing to try reprogramming just to raise my shift point a few hundred RPM, despite only running 33's. Is that possible by telling it that I'm on 35's or 37's? (The speedo would be...

Thanks, but I understand this. I was more asking for quantifiable information about the change, such as the direction the shift points are moved and by how many RPM, as well as the purpose.

I have an '12 Auto with 3.21's. I haven't heard about any recent TSB's for the transmission.

In Auto mode, it will upshift at 2000rpm or lower, which bogs the engine and I go nowhere. This...

I wouldn't worry about the weight. A gallon of bedliner weighs less than 10lbs, and a few gallons should be all you need to cover the Jeep.

It was pure luck, in my opinion, and nothing to do with aftermarket parts or the fact that it was a Jeep. If he was hit in the driver's side door instead of the rear corner the outcome would've been...

Crazy price, even for them. I like the bed in the back, but a Bruiser conversion can probably be had for much less, diesel and all.

Metal in the tire

Either these Duratracs like to pick everything up, or there's too much crap littering the roads around here. I'm always finding things stuck in the tires. Found a nice chunk of metal today. Air...

Looks like a plastic Bestop hood applique. I'm assuming it's meant to replicate the look of the Hummer hoods louvres.... :nonono:
