  1. ⚡️ 2024 Jeep Recon EV Revealed! [ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS]

    The Wagoneer BEV is an addition to the Wagoneer brand stable. The BEV isn't replacing the existing GW or Wagoneer models. Those models will eventually go electric, too, but still be big, truck-based people haulers.
  2. ⚡️ 2024 Jeep Recon EV Revealed! [ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS]

    I think it's a smart move on Jeep's part. As evidenced by the number of Sahara and High Altitude-trim Jeeps I see rolling around, there's a market for a more lux, comfortable off-roader product from Jeep. You can dress up Wrangler and Gladiator all you want but it still feels like a Jeep (not a...
  3. Can someone explain why I still love my truck??

    Fortunately, I have not experienced your issues with my JT. Going on 30k miles, the Gladiator has been solidly reliable aside from the leaking rear glass that was replaced under warranty. I do sometimes long for the roominess, comfort and payload/towing capacity of a full-size truck. But I just...
  4. High Velocity Yellow Color Introduced For 2023 Jeep Gladiator

    There's someone in my parking lot at work with a HVY Wrangler. It is a plain awful color. At first I thought there's no way it came from the factory that way. And, typically, I appreciate Jeep's brighter colors. Mojito, Punk'n, Hellayella, etc. look great.
  5. Good, we're more exclusive now..

    The JT isn't going anywhere. And it was never intended to be a volume seller. For better or worse, Stellantis/FCA made the decision a long time ago to chase higher average transaction prices. That's why the historically niche Jeep brand became the "volume" brand, Ram became a standalone brand...
  6. Nanny-State Tire Pressure warnings

    I know the Tazer JL Lite will let you change the PSI at which the warning lights come on. I believe the lowest you can change it to is 25 PSI though.
  7. Getting new 295/70/R18 ..... choices?

    I put 295/70R18 Cooper Discoverer AT3 XLT on my stock Overland wheels. Tire size is great for the Overland. Regarding the specific tires you're considering, do you know what the load range is for each? Almost everything in that size is E, including the Coopers I bought. Tires are definitely...
  8. Biggest tire I can get with no regearing needed?

    I was in your position. Loved my Overland but hated the tires. I got on here to figure out what tire to upsize to. After reading through posts I thought, " do I need to regear as well?!"; "are E-load range tires just awful to live with?" Honest to God I think I spent half a year on the decision...
  9. Falken Wildpeak tires are loud.

    The Cooper Discoverer AT3 line is excellent. For whatever reason the Coopers seem to be overlooked in a world of Nittos, Toyos, and BFGs. I personally have the AT3 XLT, which is a heavy-duty tire with deeper treads and stiffer sidewalls. The tires are very quiet. If you want something closer to...
  10. Overland or Rubicon

    You've received a lot of advice already so I would only add that, in my own personal experience, it's easy to overestimate the capabilities you'll need and/or the mods required for your Jeep to do what you need. The Gladiator is incredibly capable stock. Throw on a leveling kit and 35" tires or...
  11. JT: Reliability

    2020 Overland with 3.6 Pentastar, leveling kit, 295/70R18 Cooper Discoverer AT3 XLT tires, Bestop Sunrider. Hopefully I'm not jinxing myself, but in 26,000+ miles the only issue I've had has been the leaking rear glass. It was replaced under warranty by the dealer (though it took months and...
  12. Pentastar V6 idle

    It's typical for a dealer to check for an open RRT, or Rapid Response Transmittal, when a vehicle comes in for service. It's not quite at the level of a recall but it's above a TSB. I am not familiar with the specific one you mention but there have been some rough idling issues with the 3.6...
  13. Which second vehicles compliment the gladiator best?

    Agree with the XC90. It's what my wife and I typically drive for longer trips or running errands. I wouldn't say it's fuel efficient like the OP said he's looking for but it's in line with large to mid-size SUVs. The cargo space is phenomenal in the XC90 with the third row down. It's also a...
  14. Ford Maverick is Popular

    I'm not convinced the Maverick will be a huge hit for Ford (or consumers) after the initial sheen wears off. To make up for the low starting price, Ford will either need to sell these in some serious volume or push buyers toward higher-optioned trims - making them less of a value. I would guess...
  15. Lift Kit/leveling kit install price quotes

    Your bio says you live in Raleigh. Is that still where you're located? If so, check out Dealer Lifts in Garner/Willow Springs area. They quoted me 3 hours labor to do the Teraflex 1.5 leveling kit at $100/hour. Much better price than 4WP you mentioned. Plus, the guys at Dealer Lifts know what...
  16. Pentastar V6 idle

    I’m glad a fix (fingers crossed) was found for it. The rough idle was never a huge nuisance but definitely an annoyance on a new vehicle, especially since the other Pentastars I’ve had experience with were flawless. Hope others get the same result!
  17. Jeep Gladiator Q4 and Full-Year 2021 U.S. Sales Figures

    Great numbers. The smartest thing Chrysler/Fiat and Sergio Marchionne did post-Recession was to elevate Jeep from a niche brand to a volume brand. Oh, and building more reliable vehicles that aren't as plastic-fantastic probably helped too.
  18. Pentastar V6 idle

    I've been watching threads related to the 3.6 Pentastar rough idling for a while. I've experienced rough idling after doing a remote start or after the ESS feature kicks the engine back on. About 24k miles on my '20 JT Gladiator now. The issue never really bothered me but I kept an eye on it...
  19. Radio volume jumps shortly after turning it down...

    This is probably not your issue at all, but I used to regularly listen to a specific FM radio station that would constantly go up and down in volume. Drove me nuts! I finally figured out that it was the HD radio signal going in and out. When "HD" lit up on the Uconnect screen the volume would go...
  20. Poll- 33's or 35's?

    The problem in my mind is that stepping up to 35s+ (done properly - lift, regearing, etc.) means thousands of dollars...not to mention more frequent stops at the gas pump due to reduced fuel economy. I guess it MIGHT look a little better, but that's really subjective. If it's a daily driver and...
