Side Steps

Hi everyone.
Looking to get some side steps for my 2DR. With the 75th, there are the rock rails that come stock. I would like to keep the rails on, but would also like to add the side steps. Who has info on this?

Thanks in advance!!

I think you have two options. I went with Barricade rock sliders, I think ACE has some as well which can mount under rubi-rails.

I went with the Hard Rock sliders on mine, and love them. They provide just enough of a step, without being intrusive.

Found mine locally- from a Jeeper that was selling to buy more rugged armour.

Hand washes???

Did not think it would be a good idea to take a soft top through a car was, especially with a snorkle

They have a giant automated outdoor apparatus (too big to fit inside) and then they hand finish it. Snorkel is fine.

Does anyone know why the 75th comes with a 245/75 17 tire instead of a 255/75 17? Like the sport or rubicon.

I have asked that same question and have not gotten any ideas. Seems, it is just marketing holding brand value to the rubicon and non 75ae sahara line. When it comes to power and any equivalent transmission and gear ratio combination, all jeeps are equal. So I plan to replace my tires with at least a 245/75 r17 when the stock tires wear out...

I assumed one of two things. One was the specially designed wheels were matched to tires they could purchase for less. The second was that perhaps at stock, those specially designed wheels "roll" more efficiently for the MPG ratings.

Also the look of the wheel and stock tire size did have a "military" look to it, so perhaps it was more for looks.

All Jeeps should be sold without tires and ordered at sale time! But for those folks who do keep stock tires on a Jeep - Craigs list always has several sets of 5 brand new stock tires for $100 bucks total!

2017 JKU 75A manual review on 'Driving Television'.

4'42" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=InD-ymWgMWY

There is a reference to Canadian resale value of 79% after 4 years.
The source for that is here (from Feb/16):

An all-time record has been set this year by the Wrangler, not only did it retain more than other compact SUVs, not only was it the highest retained value of any vehicle this year, it had the highest we have seen for any vehicle in this competition, ever, 79% after four years. The demand for Wrangler seems to grow hourly, both new and used but finding a used Wrangler is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack. The Wrangler’s go-anywhere attitude, speaks to buyers who want a fun-to-drive, versatile machine that will make school runs and traverse mountain passes with equal success not a common trait. While it doesn’t quite appreciate in value, with depreciation as low this, it might look like safe alternative to the stock market.

I mounted my new wheels!

I wanted the wider stance on my jeep that spacers or aftermarket wheels provides. I researched and deliberated for a few weeks and while I really really like the stock 75A wheels, I decided I'd rather not deal with spacers. So I threw down a pretty penny and got some bronze Fuel Anza wheels. The match isn't exact, but it's in the family and I think it complements my jeep and the Mojave Sand well.

The tires are 285/70/17 K02s with a 2 inch AEV body lift.





I like the faux bead locks however it makes for an odd design flaw. The wheels capture water in the channel between the edge of the rim and the wheel spokes. Centrifugal force keeps the water spinning and it never evacuates. I'll need to make sure I clean out salty water from ocean or winter roads. Kind of a drag.

Shout out to @JP KrawlOff-Road.com who gave me the best deal anywhere on the wheels.

Does anyone know if there is a part number for the front and rear bumpers? I know they are the Rubicon bumpers but was wondering if there was ever a separate part number for these. Really like how they look.

Alternatively, if anyone isn't still rocking theirs... Maybe we could make a deal? Haha.

So I'm super excited I ordered a set of Teraflex Falcon shocks, and they ship out on the 15th! I guess they are now being made to order and each are serialized. Not that that really matters. As soon as they get here i'll be putting on a 4in lift and 37's! Post pictures when I can.

Here is my new 2016' 75th 6 speed that I picked up last week with 48 miles on it. It has 35's and a 3.5 RE lift, and I am patiently waiting for the UPS guy to deliver more goodies.

Thumbs down rusty bolts are a no-go

As I'm sure what many of you are experiencing, the black oxide bolts securing the removable "pods" on the front bumper are rusting (totally disappointing for a $45k+ truck ).

For those wanting to replace these, I found the Mopar part no. 68231973AA to reference the size, which is an M10 x 1.5 x 42 mm Torx bolt.

Personally, I'm looking for a black oxide stainless steel bolt from a different manufacturer to experiment with.

Hey i saw your lift and tire set up - were you able to do that with the stock wheels? If so, did you have to put spacers on? I have the same truck and color, and dont want to change the wheels, but like the lift.
Thanks for the help!

You need 1.5" spacers, 2" lift minimum to run 35's on stock wheels...

They are the 'off-road' bumpers in the current catalog, but there will be a different part number for the bronze... or you can get the black ones still as well...

Exactly. I have the part numbers for the normal ones, and am wondering if there was a part number for the bronzed ones.

Can't find it

Figured I'd share some info with you guys.

I asked @-PLMCRZY- for one of the detailed production reports that was being discussed in another thread. For $25 he does a detailed production tree like the sample below. I gave him my 75A VIN number and he produced a custom one for me. I've added it to my Jeep build file as well as provided it to my insurance agent. (I carried extra insurance for Mods). Interestingly for my Jeep which is a Mojave Sand 75A there were only 4,829 - Mojave Sand JKUs produced in 2016 and only 476 of those were 75A. By the time I get down the tree it turns out there is only one other twin jeep out there of my exact build. So from a novelty as well as "Jeep Info" standpoint, I think it's a nice thing to have. Again, I threw in one of the "sample" reports he had posted. It would be disingenuous for me to post mine of course!

((My guess is he might offer a discount if he already has done an exact tree before - can't hurt to ask! ))

My Jeep does have bolt on spacers to make the tires work. I also needed an adapter to make the spare fit on the tire carrier.

Here's my 2016 75th

2.5" lift with stock wheels and tires (no desire to put bigger tires on it until the stock tires wear out)
Barricade rock sliders, 2017 LED headlights and 2017 LED fogs, backup camera.
I also have a Trektop NX (twill fabric) that's going to go on in the spring.
