  1. Painting an Amfib snorkel

    I’m looking to paint an Amfib snorkel before I install it, but the shop I took it to said it wouldn’t work well - that the paint wouldn’t hold and they wouldn’t warranty the work. Who else has done this? How long have you had it and how’s it holding up? I’m not 100% sure this shop knew what...
  2. Three fatalities in Gladiator accident on Camp Bird Road near Ouray, CO

    I learned about this on Facebook, but it looks like three people lost their lives yesterday when a Gladiator fell off Camp Bird Road near Ouray, CO. Such a tragic accident… I don’t know many details, but for those not aware, this is the road that leads into the Imogene Pass trail from the Ouray...
  3. There really must only be one way

    There really must only be one way to get the wings back on the OEM steel bumper without losing at least ONE nut in there… … witchcraft 👎
  4. A HUGE shout out and thank you to Billie Bars!

    I just wanted to give a HUGE shout out and thank you to @BillieBars . First, a bit of back-story. I bought my cross bars about 1.5 years ago so I think I was one of the first takers for a Gladiator, and I've used them to support a JCR Universal Basket. They held a large ice chest and 4 HEAVY...
  5. Are KO2s also narrow?

    Pretty straight forward question… it’s been well documented that KO2s have a smaller diameter than most other similarly-specced tires, but are they also more narrow? If so, by how much? Thanks in advance.
  6. Approaching warranty expiration. What should I double check?

    I'm at 32k miles so I still have a few thousand to go, but what are the sort of things I should be double checking before I run out of warranty? That could either be Jeep-specific issues or failure points or it could just be general car stuff. Thanks in advance. For reference, I have a Sport S...
  7. Which Rocktrix wheels should I get? (poll)

    I'm looking at upgrading to bigger tires so I need wheels with less offset in order to not hit my large shocks. Long story short, I narrowed it down to either Quadratec or Rocktrix for their hub-centric wheels with +12 offset, but most of the Quadratecs are OOS so I'm looking at ordering...
  8. HELP! Trouble clearing reservoir shocks

    For reference, I’ve got Max Tow (wide) axles and Mojave take-off wheels and tires. I’ve got newer-style Vertex 2.5”shocks where the reservoir is positioned parallel to the shock body rather than mounted above the coil spring. Immediately after getting the shocks installed, I found that the...
  9. “Jeep” tires on a Land Cruiser

    Just got back from a South African safari and I was really impressed by these tires. They are not big or wide, but they go over seemingly everything. They appear to be made specially for the South African market - specifically for safari vehicles. I think the specs showed them to be 14 ply...
  10. Radiator airflow question for ARB aux lights

    I’m test fitting some VERY large ARB aux lights. Do you think these will restrict airflow to the radiator enough to be a concern? I was originally going to put them on the bumper, but the mounting posts are huge and would require me to widen the existing holes on the bumper. I’m capable of...
  11. Dash cam as trail cam?

    So I noticed Thinkware has a multiplexer which allows up to 5 cameras (4 plus the dash cam). It’s also got a couple of external camera options including surface mount side cameras (intended for blind spots but can be flipped if so desired) and swivel-mount external infrared cameras which may...
  12. How/where do you put your Badge of Honor badges?

    I know it’s pretty common to put them on the side near the Trail Rated badge, where else are people putting these things? I’ve earned two which I haven’t claimed yet, but I can’t decide what I want to do with them.
  13. How tiny would 33” tires look on a 3.5” lift?

    I’m considering a 3.5” (there’s another thread for that), but I wanted to highlight a separate question. If I were to get the lift, I wouldn’t have the budget to upgrade the tires from 33” to 35” for quite a while. So how tiny would the 33” tires look in the meantime?
  14. Are LCAs required for a 3.5” lift?

    I’ve got my eye on a 3.5” lift which includes springs, shocks, a track bar and front and rear sway bar links. What doesn’t include is front LCAs. Is this important? Lots of people do spacers up front (myself included) without any other modification, but this is taller than those. Thanks.
  15. Aux light dilemma [poll]

    So I got my Gladiator with halogen headlights and they suck. I went to remedy this on the cheap with LED BULBS, but that only solved half the problem - my low beams are amazing but my high beams still suck. I figure I’ve got three choices… 1. Mount SAE driving lights (ex. KC Pro6) on the winch...
  16. Lift vs higher fenders for 35s?

    I’m still 30k miles away from needing new tires, but I’d like to go from 33s to 35s on my Max Tow. I’m kind of liking the Kenda Klever pizza cutters but that’s a whole other conversation. My question is do you think it’s better to get a lift or just get higher fenders. The way I see it, a lift...
  17. What are the best auxiliary driving lights?

    I’m not looking to replace my existing headlights, but my high beams are pretty weak. So I’m looking to add a pair of driving lights on my winch guard that I can tie into the high beams. The KC Hilites Gravity Pro 6 seem like a decent option, but does anyone have experience with them? And what...
  18. 3-Week National Park Tour (w/ pics)

    So we’re one week into a national park tour and general outdoors vacation, starting from Texas and looking like this: New Mexico: Hyatt Regency Tamaya (Albuquerque) Colorado: Mesa Verde National Park Imogene Pass (Ouray) Utah: Arches National Park Fins and Things (Moab) Wyoming: Grand Tetons...
  19. My JT is a freakin’ Transformer!

    Ok, maybe not THAT big of a deal, but I thought this was pretty cool! I finally got the hinges I needed to swing the cross bars and basket up out of the way for better bed access. It’ll still take some tweaking to get it just right, but you definitely get the idea! All I have to do is...
  20. Cell booster vs personal locator beacon?

    I’ve got some budget to spare and a long road trip with national park camping and hiking ahead for me and my family. I’m looking at either a cell booster or a Garmin Inreach as a way to stay more connected when I’m further from civilization. Obviously one is more useful for everyday stuff...
