    Radio goes in-and-out, cruise control doesn't always work, and tire pressure alerts come and go

    Also this was a used Jeep and I am assuming you have no knowledge of the P.O's and what they've done to it in the past. Possibly someone had another HU in it and cut the wiring harness up. Then when they traded it or sold it, they spliced it all back together without soldering or proper care? If...

    How do I add second battery to my 2010 JK 2-door?

    Yes, you can buy a dual battery tray from many manufacturers. Then if you search around, you can see how to wire up the dual batteries. I would use a battery isolator on the charging circuit and possibly a high current switching system to switch between them if you want redundancy. Or if you are...

    2021 Bronco?

    And I say it again, "Where were these options when the JK came out in 2007?" I wanted the Diesel or HEMI V8 back then but nooooo....! I really believe that Ford is causing FCA to have to up their game here and we will all benefit from it. For years there was NO competition to the Rubicon Jeep...

    Jeep finally listening: 3.0L Diesel 8-Speed auto available in the 2020 JLUR (IN California) no less

    I priced it out on-line as a budget friendly just under $40K with few add-ons. The 1-ton Dana axle kit and big-brakes will make it stop faster than the 22 extra feet required over the gasser. Now, if they can just put it in some other colors than the basic 4: Black, White, Grey & Green...

    Jeep finally listening: 3.0L Diesel 8-Speed auto available in the 2020 JLUR (IN California) no less

    Finally Jeep is listening to what customers want! I may actually trade our 2009 JKUR in for a brand spanking new Diesel JLUR with 8-speed automatic. This Jeep will get 2 MPG better mileage on the highway estimated than my Odyssey minivan does with it's miserly 3.5L gasser! It's my Birthday today...

    Does anyone have a Seicane Android 10 10.1 inch radio?

    I have to take some of it so not at the moment. It sits above the factory radio, not in front like some kits do. I am still considering other options on position. Glare can be an issue at times, looking for a flat matte screen protector to help eliminate some of it. Mostly, it's pretty good...

    Does anyone have a Seicane Android 10 10.1 inch radio?

    I was looking for quite a long time at the 10.1/10.2 Android screen radio HU's but they don't make for the 1st gen 2007-2010 JK. Only the 2011-2018's had any real choices of large screen displays available. Some of the makers are crazy what they want for their HU's, one company comes to mind...

    Thinking about adding wheel spacers

    Wheel adapter or spacer Tips: Recommendations from a former ASE master mechanic and tire shop operator: When shopping for wheel spacers or bolt pattern adapter/spacers, avoid anything over 2" thick because things happen to the geometry of your steering and wheel bearing/front end wear...

    Jeep made a loud noise like something getting stuck in fan and now it won't start

    All this reminds me of an old XJ Cherokee I had and what almost happened to the small commuter car that replaced it by the same company: 1st: A national quick-lube place destroyed the engine by installing the wrong oil filter that blew off the engine while driving on the freeway of an old XJ...

    Jeep made a loud noise like something getting stuck in fan and now it won't start

    That would be terrible and get you an insurance claim against the shop that changed the oil for sure. But you better act fast and figure it out fo-sho....

    Jeep made a loud noise like something getting stuck in fan and now it won't start

    So is the starter stuck on then? It runs but starter stays engaged or it won't start? Also if it just cranks over but won't start, there could be a sensor out of adjustment or not working that keeps the engine from starting. Does it sound like the engine starts to fire but then doesn't and keeps...

    Yet another cracked windshield

    You all think the JK has a bad windshield design? Look at the complaints about the weak windshield on JL Wranglers. TONS of people, like 2/3 of owners complain about the JL windshield propensity to crack with even small chips that turn into major cracks across the whole windshield, most of the...

    Jeep made a loud noise like something getting stuck in fan and now it won't start

    It cranks when you turn the key to START position? If there are lights and gauges, does the starter crank and turn over the engine or will it not even make a "click"? We need a little more information to try to help you out. Also if it doesn't crank over but you hear the starter click, check...

    WTB: Wanted: Artec JK1011 Aluminum UNDER ARMOR belly skid pan system for JKU or JKUR

    Hello, Long shot but I thought I'd post up to see if anyone is trading their built JKUR in and wants to sell their Artec JK1011 Aluminum skid pan system from their Jeep before they trade the Jeep or sell the Jeep to get some extra $$ out of their equipment. If you are thinking of selling OR...

    Will I need any other mods for 35s and a 2.5 inch lift?

    Depending on factory gearing and transmission, I'd re-gear to 5.13's maybe even 5.39's for 35's. Might be able to get away with 4.88 but if you ever want to go to 37's some day, gears in the 5.xx will help that. This will help keep all your pep in your drive and not overheat the transmission if...

    Will I need any other mods for 35s and a 2.5 inch lift?

    2.5 and bump stops will work for 35's fine. If you need more room, trim the flares a little or run aftermarket flat-flares or high clearance flare kits. If you still need more: A 1" body lift on top of that and you would really be golden even if you go off-road a lot. It will not radically...

    Best 2.5” lift?

    The first kit on the JKUR we had was just Rock Krawler 2.5 original design springs, shocks and brake lines, bump stop extensions, everything else was completely stock and it was good for a cheap way to gain altitude and maintain somewhat stock ride. The first kit on the JKUR was alright for...
