It's all fun and games until your car smells like deceased sea mammal.
I will wish the op good luck though my parents had a small bit of pig blood soak in to their hummer after picking up a whole pig to roast. A few years later I still tey not to ride in the meat wagon as it makes me want to barf
I saw the AMW 707's at jeep beach, those are 197K dollar trucks for the hellcat swapped.
Basically new trans, reinforced frames, new engine, all new wiring, 1 ton axles, lockers, etc etc etc. They said it takes 200+ man hours to do the full conversion.
Fully agree, I honestly don't put much worth in either one, and realistically most major brands are all fairly reliable beyond first couple years of any new tech.
I only really pointed to it because Jet kept on trying to claim that Ford was some well known reliability power house.
Jd power isn't really about reliability, rather how much customers complain. Things like carplay connectivity, infotainment too hard to understand, voice commands confusing all are considered "problems" which skew the numbers heavily versus actual reliability.
Would like to point out that Ford was ranked below Chrysler in latest ranking from consumer reports, and Lincoln came in last place. In 2020 Ford was 28th out of 31 so no, Ford is not known for major reliability in new vehicles. The Ford of this decade is not the Ford of the late 90s and early...
I shoe horned the heat shield back on as well, when I installed it, was easy enough. I have no idea what torque is on those 2 upper bolts so I just kinda gave it 4 or so ugga duggas from my mid torque and set the sway bar end links to 60.
The bfg 39s are 38.5 x 13.5 and about 38 mounted by most accounts should get me not quite another inch of ground clearance and .5 an inch farther out. They're also fairly light though (80 pounds) so they don't bring the 40s penalty.
Local shop is on a different distribution network, most likely 4wp has them in their warehouse versus the standard tire network. Always check places like tire rack, simple tire, discount tire, tire buyer, and then the off road shops as well if you're looking for stock as i've found they all have...
You can actually just enable the car wifi from the uconnect. Turn it on, it gives you a website to go to and sign up with, then you can enable it via that. (I have the 8.4, this may be different on other uconnects)
LTE is plenty fast and what the majority of us are still on most of the time as...
I didnt, i'm still running the generals, but I'm probably going to be moving ko2 39's in the future. Waiting for availability, and then these will go to my parents new gladiator they are ordering from gupton.
I will say, if general made a bigger option i'd be all in, I absolutely love these...
