  1. Blown engine under 12K miles

    ....before the early 1970s when compression ratios were lowered, HP numbers lowered, etc.
  2. What did you HAUL in your JT today?

    Hard to tell from this pic, but a bunch of stuff I was giving away - DAV got all of the stuff we didn't sell at our neighbor's garage sale, and The ReStore (helps habitat for humanity) got some tools, building supplies and materials, some stuff unopened, still in the boxes, a good working...
  3. What is this button?

    OK, I have to be honest and admit it - I actually wondered what the heck you were talking about - duck? What duck? Naw, no duck......... Then I was inside taking the door connections loose and thought - hey, no one is looking - step back and take a look. Dang - it's a duck! So the lady is right...
  4. Paint v Powdercoat [Hood]

    Very true - it takes a hell of a lot to chip it, but then you're done unless someone has come up with a different process than I'm aware of. I'd go so far as to say you won't get a perfect color match. It's plastic. You can blend powders for different effects or custom colors, but that's...
  5. Paint v Powdercoat [Hood]

    I do powder coating - granted, small parts, not frames or hoods, but still - parts for show cars among other things. Yes, it WILL reflect light differently, yes it will age differently, colors will look different - you're not going to get a perfect match unless you want black or white (even...
  6. Most popular JT colors?

    YOUR OPINION - based on where you live or perhaps your personal preference., maybe not in Phukoria AZ if you want to be that way. We have a civil discussion and someone comes out with insults and name-calling. Sincer you seem to know all about color sales, please tell the dealerships here that...
  7. Rubicon suspension takeoff question

    Only the springs and shocks are different. That's the tuning. Otherwise the control arms and track bar are the same. (sway bar is the same if you don't count the disconnect but you can add disconnect options to any JT) I got about 7/8" up front and a bit stiffer ride, meaning more road feel...
  8. Most popular JT colors?

    Pretty much. I have photos from the traffic in the middle of Daegu I should post..........
  9. What’s everyone using for oil?

    At the recommendation of Rachael Ray, I'm sure. Do you use her EVOO dispenser, too?
  10. Dear Jeep - Things I Don't Like

    EXACTLY! It's space in the door - room for not just the glass, but the regulator mechanism. Nothing to do with weight - it's to do with space. Yeah, some go down all the way, some part way, some not at all, depending on the space in that particular vehicle. There has to be space for the...
  11. Rubicon suspension takeoff question

    There is no "pat answer" because "Rubicon springs" can be at least 2 or 3 different springs for the front and 2 or 3 different rear springs. AND the JT you are putting them in may have lighter springs or heavier springs. So if you have a Sport or Overland with the heaviest springs used in the...
  12. Blown engine under 12K miles

    We have no 89 here - at least I've not seen it. it's 87 with ethanol and 87 without ethanol, (almost all stations have these two choices, often these are the ONLY two choices!!) 91 (called premium at some stations) with, or without ethanol, varies with stations or 93 (called premium at the...
  13. Driver's Door Electrical Connection

    Would be interesting to quantify things - you may find a dozen or more links, but often, as with the steering and engine issues, it's the same folks in every thread. So it looks like 100 people, but it's 20 over and over. Then quantify those who have NO problems - have taken the doors off and...
  14. Mirror option for no doors

    What I saw was 140 each.
  15. What’s everyone using for oil?

    It's not the shops here I have a big problem with - it's the sales people, especially the so-called "sales managers".
  16. Mirror option for no doors

    What was the part number for those? What I see for the JT are well over 100 a pop on their site -
  17. Factory V8

    Throttle response - this is what "Stick shifter" did 8 years ago in a naturally aspirated car - V8 with duel 1050 cfm carbs - 1/4 Mile ET: 7.159 1/4 Mile MPH: 189.140 1/8 Mile ET: 4.590 1/8 Mile MPH: 149.910 0-60 Foot ET: 1.082
  18. Most popular JT colors?

    Visited my son and his family in Korea Feb-March 2019. We got to walk my grandson to and from his kindergarten class. One day we were walking him back to their apartment along the street in Daegu and of course, heavy traffic in that city........ and suddenly he hollers out "hey, look, a blue...
  19. Factory V8

    My wife's Jeep is 4875 pounds based on Edmunds specs, no driver or cargo. Put the driver in it and it's 5,000 - put me in it and it's 5200. Grand Cherokees are not light, and yet............ She can get 26 mpg pretty easily. 24-25 putzing around town. With my JT I routinely do 23+ unless I...
