  1. Losing hats

    The hat I keep in the Jeep has a shoelace wrapped around the size adjuster in the back. I put my head through the loop and use a cord lock to cinch it around my neck. 6+ years and haven't lost a hat yet.
  2. 2021 Jeep Gladiator Now Include 3 Years of Jeep Wave Care Program (Free Maintenance)

    I prefer to change my own oil anyway. I hate rotating tires, though.
  3. Introducing Jeep Adventure Academy! School to Provide Essential Off-Roading Instruction to Jeep 4x4 Owners and Enthusiasts

    FYI, I tried to add a second rider and I was told they're only doing two people per Jeep because of COVID and they figure it'll be more manageable social distancing. Friggin' Coronavirus!
  4. Introducing Jeep Adventure Academy! School to Provide Essential Off-Roading Instruction to Jeep 4x4 Owners and Enthusiasts

    I hear ya. I had to hurry up and get my Smittybilt bumper on yesterday that's been sitting in my garage for the last couple of weeks. I'll be there too, on Sunday.
  5. Introducing Jeep Adventure Academy! School to Provide Essential Off-Roading Instruction to Jeep 4x4 Owners and Enthusiasts

    I just signed up for the Missouri one. It's about time Jeep came here. My second Jeep and I've never been to a Jamboree event.
  6. One thing that sucks about my jeep......slammed doors!

    I had the same problem with my JKU. The force used to close those doors was different with the hard top vs. soft top and luckily, the driver's door was the only one slightly out of adjustment (not enough to have it adjusted, thankfully) and I was able to adjust how hard I closed it depending on...
  7. Front plates on new Gladiator

    Thanks for the info.
  8. How loud is the soft top?

    I have both and my soft top is the premium one. It's not much louder than the hard top, but the basic soft top is louder than the premium one (I had a JKU with both and the soft top was the basic material), but still not significantly.
  9. Front plates on new Gladiator

    What plate holder is that?
  10. Mojave Premium Fabric Versus Leather

    I've got the standard Rubicon fabric and a set of Smittybilt ballistic waterproof seat covers. They're fantastic and also machine washable.
  11. Why did you/didn’t you lift your JT?

    I didn't lift mine because I'm 5'10" and my Rubicon is tall enough for me already. I also want it to clear my open garage door when my soft top is on and folded back.
  12. Jeep Gladiator - happy owners? seeing scary stuff in the repair forums

    I bought mine in July 2019 and have a little over 11k miles. It's a 6-speed Rubicon and other than the manual trans recall (which there was no damage and no parts had to be replaced, just the standard fix), I've had no major issues. Within the first 1k miles, I had random faulty TPMS...
  13. Dear Jeep - Things I Don't Like

    It's like this so the entire bed is still usable WHILE the top is down. If the top folded all the way down and you were hauling a washing machine, dryer, armoire, etc. the top frame would be crushed or bent and you would demand it be repaired under warranty.
  14. Lets talk manual transmission and stalling.

    I love mine, too. The clutch is the lightest I've ever experienced (so light, in fact, that it's ruined me for my 92 Trans Am) and I suspect the reason for the abysmal tow rating. IMO, the Rubicon's 4.10 gear ratio is a vast improvement over the 3.42s (IIRC) in my former 6MT JKU Sahara. I feel...
  15. Why did we wait? Best Mod to date..

    They've had plenty of time to sell sunriders at the parts counter for JKs and JKUs. So why haven't they?
  16. Why did we wait? Best Mod to date..

    I just did a Google search for "2020 jeep gladiator n-fab rock rails". The N-Fab part no. for them is: J194TRKRS. I love them. The rails aren't quite as sturdy as my factory ones are, but I'm 5'10" tall and the steps are in the perfect spot and make it so much easier to get in and out. They're...
  17. Why did we wait? Best Mod to date..

    Nope. That would eat into their soft top sales.
  18. Why did we wait? Best Mod to date..

    The purchase of a soft top was definitely my best mod so far. Luckily for me I was able to locate one still in the sealed box about 45 min. from my house for $900! I know that was like a small lottery win and probably won't happen again. IDK how much a Sunrider is but it can't be much less than...
  19. Doors off mirrors?

    Sorry it took me so long to respond. Yes, they vibrate, but I'm not trying to read license plates on the cars behind me. They don't vibrate enough to bother me.
  20. What did you do TO your Gladiator today?

    I installed Mopar pedal covers. BTW, if anyone wants to add these to their Jeep, do not follow the directions. I have a much easier way.
