Electrical problems can be frustrating and difficult to fix, so I feel for you. But in fairness, I don't think your Jeep is typical. I have not had mine in for anything in the over a year that I...

I have springs on the sunrider flip, but the factory one has spring assists where the bows attach to the roll bar in the back storage area in addition to those. I don't have them.

Manufacturer's recommended tow is not a legal limit. And insurers can't deny coverage in any case any more than they can if you are three sheets to the wind with booze. Both of these are common...

I have towed one thing or another from small trailers to large trailers to fifth wheels for over 40 years now. These days I tow a 4200 lb deck boat around with my 13 JKU. It accelerates well and...

There's an ORV area on the way to Lake Tenkiller - not the main highway but 10, I think. I used to drive past there when I visited in summer. There is a military training camp, Gruber IIRC, ...

I tow mine all over. No key is needed and no battery disconnect either. Jeep quit using the steering interlock about 2007, I believe. I use a ReadyBrake braking system and a separate tail/stop...

I beg to differ - at least in the 4K area. I tow a 4200lb boat with my 13 JKUS rather often. It is rock solid stable. There is nothing "scary" about it whatsoever. I have towed the same load...
