  1. Put together cheap aux mirrors

    I redid mine, didn't like the brackets. I bought 2 of the scooter mirrors, removed the mirror, and put the larger convex mirrors onto the longer stems (the ball on the scooter mirror and the ball on the short stud of the larger mirror is the same size). I slotted the plastic of the larger...
  2. Rear locker engaging automatically in 2H

    My truck started doing this in early July after I got back from a trip across the country, no towing or anything it was sitting in the airport parking lot for 4 days and when I got home the light popped on almost immediately. Never noticed it before then. Took almost 2 weeks to get a proper...
  3. Flashing locker light - three road trip days from home

    Update: Finally got the truck looked at. Dealership took 9 days to diagnose (Took me 5 minutes on Google) and is replacing the "differential" (their words) which I take to mean axle assembly, or whatever they get from Dana. Axle is ordered and should be here in a couple weeks. I have the...
  4. Mojave fuel mileage: 20.2

    Mine (manual Rubicon, stock) climbed little by little for about 10k miles. Started around 16, now usually around 19. A lot of people have a similar experience.
  5. Look a Bronco going off road like to hear your thoughts

    That's a bronco sport not the real big boy bronco.
  6. Anyone else interested in a glass rear window for the soft top?

    Don't want it. If I flip the top back with the window in place (I do this often, daily in nice weather) I don't want a glass piece buffeting around. When I take the window out I like being able to roll it to some degree. I don't want to have to uplug the window to remove it. No thanks, I'll...
  7. Jeep: give us a new power plant!

    Also the introduction of emissions controls meant lower compression and neutered timing which also dropped real power output.
  8. Flashing locker light - three road trip days from home

    My truck is going to the dealer tomorrow for this same issue, my light will come on and I can turn it off with the locker off switch but usually have to be under 35 for it to give me the unlocked signal. Mine is stock, have not looked at these connecors
  9. Tire Install Help

    Pics please, those wheels are on my very short list
  10. I don’t understand.

    My diff lock sensor is acting up and I have my JT parked for now (service appt next week). So far it's the only big issue I've had, and I'm not the first so there is some history on it (Dana problem from what I've read). My truck is stock and I've only used the lockers to make sure I am...
  11. Thinking about trading in my Tacoma for a Rubi…

    That's why I said stock. I don't have a Tazer and cannot engage lockers outside of 4L
  12. Thinking about trading in my Tacoma for a Rubi…

    I have had a couple minor inconveniences on mine that have been handled by the dealership. ESS battery failure and they replaced both batteries, steering gear TSB completed at the same time. One issue some rubicons have, and mine is being looked at next week for it, is the diff lock sensor. I...
  13. How do Gladiators handle on the highway?

    So you're saying if you change everything in the suspension it will handle differently? The steering wander in mine was fixed with the replacement box per TSB. Clearly there was a flaw in the earlier runs. My JT is stock and drives great
  14. Just turned 2k miles.. 2 questions

    Should be page 6 on the dash, if it constantly says "stop/start not ready battery charging" your ESS battery is dead. Mine worked right after I bought it, then got spotty, then stopped working entirely. Dealership replaced both batteries and it works again. I may be the only one here who...
  15. How do Gladiators handle on the highway?

    There may have been something wrong with this one, my grandpa is not known for his vehicular maintenance, but it wandered like nothing else. We are in complete agreement on handling. I am not typically a fan of driving trucks because they just don't handle as well as the cars I'm used to...
  16. How do Gladiators handle on the highway?

    My grandpa had a WJ that is, to date, the worst steering vehicle I have ever driven. That thing wandered like nothing I have ever been in before or since. So on that basis it could very much be a Jeep thing. After the TSB my highway wander is gone but there are definitely handling...
  17. Google Street View

    A month or 2 I think, it's bee a few years since I've seen the car. I just went back to look and was able to find a couple of them but the third I don't remember when it was or where I was on the particular road. The one on the bike is fun because I can watch myself follow the car down the...
  18. Google Street View

    I've been on street view in 2 different cars and on a bike at different times. I saved the images somewhere for each of them
  19. Rear locker coming on by itself...

    I am now also having this problem, 12k+ miles and no offloading or mods. A year to the day after I got it home it started. Can't get it looked at until the 12th. I'll be pushing for the same fix and won't drive it in the mean time
  20. How long have you owned your Gladiator? Still Love it?

    Just about a week shy of a year with mine, little over 12k miles, still love it. Only modifications are a tonneau cover (Tyger tri-fold), stubby antenna, and a couple doodads inside. No plans to change anything, I love it as is. Had a couple warranty issues covered without issue (2 small...
