  14. Grease Zirks

    Are there any grease zirks on the JT anywhere or around the slip yoke on the drive shaft? Any of you get a thump feel in the back end when you come to a stop, kinda like a soft rear end tap coming to a stop?

    Pretty sure it isn’t made but I need to rig something up. Who else besides me drives during the sloppy seasons and uses their windshield wipers?

  18. 2021 JT Rubi auto, moan sound in reverse.

    I’ve got 3000 kms on the odometer. The moaning sound happened from the first day and I didn’t think much of it as I figured something up front just needed to break in. Only happens when backing into the garage or reversing out of a parking stall. The sound is coming from the front and I first...

    So, reality is, I live where it snows and ices up and road salt/gravel is spread out and rock chips in the windshield is a way of life.
