  1. OEM wheel balancing weights

    I am trying to figure out which of the wheel weights are OEM and which are aftermarket on this car I saw at McDonalds.
  2. TPM warnings

    The spare is not monitored. It does not even have a sensor on a Gladiator. The sensors go to sleep when the tire is not rotating to preserve battery life. So even when the spare has a sensor, like on a Wrangler, the system is only monitoring the four road tires.
  3. 2023 Gladiator Order Banks Are Now Open!

    These are July orders for August production. Production has not started in July.
  4. 2023 Gladiator Order Banks Are Now Open!

    Even in the late 1960s during the peak muscle car years, August was the changeover time for Chrysler production. Cars produced starting in August to be at the dealers in September. Of course, model year changeovers were a bit bigger deal when styling was updated every year.
  5. 2023 Gladiator Order Banks Are Now Open!

    No, this was a normal time for the switchover until COVID. Model year production traditionally switched in August.
  6. New JT Gladiator Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    In early 2021 I had troubles getting a steering box. After waiting several weeks, I got Jeep Cares involved and my steering box showed up the next day. Since then, I bought a used Wrangler and there was no waiting in summer of 2022. Same for a couple of friends with Wranglers. The boxes were in...
  7. Uconnect 8.4 navigation malfunction

    I had the same issue, but it was a ways back in a 2018 Chrysler 300. The fix was indeed a new radio.
  8. The dreaded sunvisor

    File a complaint on the NHTSA website and mention it is unsafe. If enough people do, it can result in a investigation and recall.
  9. Diesel vs gas transmission differences

    Gear ratios appear to be the same in both versions according to a Google search and several sources.
  10. FCA Canada voids transmission warranty for using AMSOIL.

    If AMSOIL's spec sheet said it met the requirements, that would be one thing. But it doesn't. It just says to use in applications that require these specifications. That's a big difference.
  11. When auto-stop-start becomes more intermittent....

    if you disable stop/start via the hood pin, you also disable remote start (if so equipped).
  12. Head light upgrade to LED bulbs

    I installed the Beamtech as the poster above did in two Jeeps. Interestingly flicker was much more noticeable in the 2020 Wrangler than it was in the 2020 Gladiator. I'm sure different LED bulbs behave differently, but these made good light, without the downside or scatter or poor pattern some...
  13. Spare tire dumb question

    Word of warning if you're running JK wheels. While a matching JT or JL wheel will work as a spare, a JK wheel won't. The pop out center on a JK wheel is smaller and and the spare tire bracket won't fit through.
  14. Lost Key replacement.... done at ACE hardware.

    You can retrieve the PIN and program a key using JScan. But again, you have to have a working key to turn the Jeep on to get this information.
  15. Lost Key replacement.... done at ACE hardware.

    If you did not have a working key with you, the Ace machine would not work as I understand it. To program a key, you need a PIN. You can get the PIN from the dealer, but it can also be read from the vehicle, but the vehicle ignition must be on to read that PIN.
  16. Fire Fire! My Gladiator burned down

    Sorry for the truck! But everyone thinking that disabling stop/start would have prevented the fire is incorrect. Even assuming it had something to do with the dual battery wiring, disabling stop/start doesn't eliminate that wiring entirely.
  17. How long have you owned your Gladiator? Still Love it?

    I just celebrated 2 years and 17k miles. The only thing I really miss is a V8. I loved my old 1999 Dakota R/T 5.9.
  18. Did you sell your original Sport tires/wheels?

    I kept mine in the corner of the garage until it was time to move. After no bites even at $100, I took them all to a local used tire place and gave them to them. I had maybe 1k miles on them.
  19. New JT Gladiator Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    Yes, and he started the cost reductions push on suppliers that would have been in place when the JL and JT steering boxes were being spec'ed out by FCA and sent to suppliers for bids and production. Just because Sergio passed away doesn't mean FCA changed how they treated suppliers.
  20. New JT Gladiator Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    They aren't making them,. They are buying them. So there are probably at least two factors that come into play under FCA's tenure: 1) Loss of experienced engineers. Started under DCX but continued under FCA. Why pay more for experience when they can find cheaper replacements? The inexperienced...
