    **Gone** - Free - JKU Plastic Side Steps / Running Boards

    I know this is a long shot, but if anyone wants these, just pick them up (Saukville/Port Washington, WI) or I can ship on your dime. The drivers side front bracket has the inserts pulled out and both have rock rash on the sides. The top surfaces look nice.

    Gladiator Tow Thread

    Jeep Marketing is working its magic on me! My wife and I are about 8 years out from retiring. Since we will be retiring early at age 57/58 we will not have jobs of any kind in order to pull funds from our retirement accounts, penalty free. Our plan is to purchase a rig, I hope similar to what...

    Ever Rebuild an Air Conditioning Compressor?

    I mentioned awhile back that my air conditioning compressor apparently froze tight. I find this a bit strange since I hardly used it since new in 2016. That being said, I’ve used the defroster plenty which means that the compressor is engaged during those times. Symptoms were: At freeway...

    Sway Bar Link Question:

    I’m getting close to finishing the installation of my homemade budget boost kit. The front spacers are 2 1/2” and the rears are 1” tall. Net lift ended up to be the height of the spacers plus a 1/4” in both the front and rear. I have a winch mounted inside my stock front bumper that added 80lbs...

    Just call me Captain??

    Weatherman said possible rain after 6pm during the morning news, so I head to work with the top down and doorless. 11:45am I get word that it's pouring; fucking weathermen. By time I get Oscar inside, he has 2" to 3" of standing water in the foot wells. Do I need to be concerned about anything...

    Missing Factory Wheel Weight?

    While doing my first tire rotation I noticed two of my Factory Moab Wheels have clips, but no weights. At first I was thinking that they got tossed while driving, but now I'm not sure. I have no out of balance symptoms and the clips look like they never had weight on them. Anyone else run into this?

    Please Educate Me On Soft Tops!

    Looking to get a new hat for Oscar. First choice is the Bestop NX Twill. I see one on CL from a 2013 JKU - never used, still wrapped and in the boxes. The guy bought it as part of a dual top group. My question is: Were the stock tops at that time Black Twill?

    Freedom Panel Screws?

    Having just got my JKU 5 weeks ago I've only had the front panels from my hard top off a few times. My question is do you always replace the 2 long back screws every time you put the panels back on? It seems like the 5 latches would be enough. What's your experience been?
