  1. Gas mileage is concerning..

    Any time I think my JT fuel efficiency is bad, I go drive our Navigator. Or if I really want to laugh I'll fire up the Impala and watch the gas gauge drop as I romp it.
  2. If you could do it over - What would you change?

    Lol no, I can survive around them just fine even with my unsafe halogen lights.
  3. If you could do it over - What would you change?

    They do offer power door locks on the sport
  4. What was your ride before the JT?

    My GX had an OME lift and 33s which kind of added to the compromise situation all around. Wasn't great at family hauling, too frilly to really wheel, but overall still really nice. Most days we were taking the GS350 because the GX was a pain to deal with. Once we traded the GX for the...
  5. What was your favorite Jeep (other than the JT)?

    I had a 98 XJ 5 speed with the Up Country suspension and totally agree. Rode pretty rough, the factory tow hooks while better than nothing were pretty worthless, the 8.25" rear developed an awful gear whine, and it ate clutch slave cylinders left and right. My 1990 and 1991 XJ Laredos had...
  6. What was your ride before the JT?

    I miss my GX the most of all my previous vehicles. Unfortunately with 3 kids we needed a bigger 3rd row so I traded it for our Navigator L.
  7. What was your ride before the JT?

    A Lexus GS
  8. If you could do it over - What would you change?

    It never is :(
  9. If you could do it over - What would you change?

    I personally don’t buy vehicles that are easy for your daughter to drive but at least you got a low end Benz in case she dings it. I’m sorry the vision issues run in the family but you have LEDs so you and your neighbors will survive. In the meantime enjoy trolling forums of vehicles you wish...
  10. If you could do it over - What would you change?

    If you have that much trouble with your vision then maybe you should stick to your budget Benz and avoid jeeps altogether. Safety first my friend. personally I’d be more worried about the thousands of barely running vehicles on the road in Oklahoma due to no inspection requirements but sure...
  11. If you could do it over - What would you change?

    I'm also glad I don't live in Oklahoma. Just because you like aftermarket LED bright white headlights doesn't mean the stock halogens are unsafe. I've never directly compared stock XJ lights to an 8 year old JKU but I wheel with an XJ pretty regularly and can say the JT halogen headlights/fogs...
  12. If you could do it over - What would you change?

    The stock halogens are definitely safe and don't pose any type of safety concern. I didn't say the LEDs aren't a solid upgrade from the factory. I said your assessment of the stock halogens was highly exaggerated and hyperbole laden which is a hilarious forum thing. I gave one example of why I...
  13. If you could do it over - What would you change?

    4.10 gears in the axles, 4:1 low range in the transfer case, front swaybar disconnect, and f/r e-lockers aren't exactly little knick knacks. No knock on the other trim levels, but the Rubicon is a pretty solid package overall.
  14. If you could do it over - What would you change?

    No, I tend to just drive it quite a bit and haven't had this imaginary headlight issue you're crying about. Your anecdotal evidence from your 8 year old JK you don't own anymore doesn't line up with my real world experience here. Sure the LEDs make it look more modern but they're hardly a...
  15. If you could do it over - What would you change?

    Your LEDs in your non-existent Gladiator? I'll keep driving my Gladiator with the candle powered halogens while you tool around on forums dedicated to vehicles you don't own. By all means continue throwing out exaggerated statements about vehicles you don't own. I'm sure you'll do the...
  16. What Mopar accessories would you buy for $300?

    Do you have the MOPAR slush mats? They're not quite weathertech but they fit well and get the job done. I bought a set for ~$150 when I first got my JT because I couldn't get the weathertech set shipped in time for my first trip wheeling. Haven't felt the need to replace them. *edit* just saw...
  17. If you could do it over - What would you change?

    Lol, side with caution and you think people will take your exaggerated warning seriously? Okay, bud. Your anecdotal evidence is using ridiculous hyperbole to justify your cosmetic modification, but being from Oklahoma it all makes more sense. Enjoy your bright white LEDs lol.
  18. If you could do it over - What would you change?

    I drive 4k+ miles a month so the Gladiator has never been trailered anywhere lol. The lights on the Gladiator are pretty good compared to say.. my 63 Impala, or my old CJ7, XJs, etc. I've never once had to turn my highbeams on, or flip my headlights on/off to verify they're on. Maybe you...
  19. If you could do it over - What would you change?

    It's hyperbole like this that makes me stop and question forum advice. I'm glad you got what you want, but wheeling in the middle of nowhere has shown me that the stock halogens are more than capable of illuminating the path.
  20. If you could do it over - What would you change?

    The more I see the LEDs, the more I agree. We were driving home from New Mexico during the giant snowstorm in the south earlier this year, and the HID lights in our Navigator were a huge life saver since they produced enough heat to keep the headlights visible. People with LEDs were struggling...
