  1. New JT Gladiator Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    I'm sad to report that my TSB steering repair isn't progressing very well. We visited the dealer a few weeks back and our steering gear was "supposedly" put on order. Then last week when we ordered the FOX steering stabilizer, we were told that both parts would be at the dealership tomorrow. I...
  2. Anyone here subscribing to UConnect service?

    After I installed the Uconnect app, thinking it was harmless stuff like unlocking the doors, I started going through the menus and found the family drive thing. Had to Google it to understand what it does. We can both throw around IT credentials, bro. I was an information systems security...
  3. Long road trips with JT

    You said: There sure is. The vehicle has the TSB steering gear problem. Already verified by the dealer, and parts on order.
  4. Anyone here subscribing to UConnect service?

    LOL, ever read about Uconnect's tie in to Sirius Guardian on these vehicles? This was enabled by default when I installed the app: "Family Drive Alerts is a notification system that helps promote safer driving and helps give you peace of mind when your loved ones are out on the road. You can...
  5. Anyone here subscribing to UConnect service?

    Suggest you prowl around deep into these apps because some of them allow tracking of your driving behavior and locations. If memory serves me right, the tracking feature was turned on by default in the Sirius Guardian app. On top of that, our Mojave had a hidden Spireon KAHU tracking device...
  6. Questions to ask the dealer about my "new" year-old Gladiator

    ^^^^ This ^^^^ The low-wage shop monkeys had all of our tires 10 psi or more overinflated. If memory serves me right, the door jam sticker says 37 psi all the way around, and they had between 47 and 50 psi in each tire. Recommend having a tire gauge on hand for the delivery, so you can jack...
  7. Long road trips with JT

    If these vehicles are so great for the highway: what's up with the 97mph speed limiter on the Gladiator? We've owned a 2012 4-door Rubicon, a 2018 2-door Rubicon, and this 2020 Gladiator Mojave. Compared to the 2017 RAM 3500 Cummings we also owned, all of these Jeeps scare the crap out of me at...
  8. New JT Gladiator Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    These are all new, or nearly new Gladiators, so I can't imagine how a mechanic could possibly damage the pitman arm, unless he used nothing but a hammer to try and remove it. Removing the part isn't difficult or rocket science, it just requires the right tools. Was the vehicle up in "salt...
  9. New JT Gladiator Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    If you have the correct, non-problematic steering gear, to begin with, you won't get or need the TSB fix. My understanding is the problem only affects the aluminum steering gear. You can easily tell which one is installed by crawling under the vehicle and seeing if you have the cast iron or...
  10. Mojave owners: any issues so far?

    Too late on holding off on the steering stabilizer, already bought and paid for. I'd like to have it anyway. With FOX stuff everywhere else on the vehicle, it's kinda crazy that it wasn't installed, to begin with.
  11. Question About The Trail Rails

    Thanks for answering that. Weird though, seems like it should have had six instead of four to really work well. Wouldn't have cost much to have the Canadians or Mexicans install two more.
  12. Question About The Trail Rails

    Much obliged if someone can answer this? Our 2020 Mojave came with the Trail Rail System installed at the factory. How many tie-downs are there supposed to be? We have four, two-each on the side rails, and none on the back rail. Is that normal, or did someone jack a couple of them?
  13. Edmonds best midsize truck ranking

    How exactly do you get away with calling a raised Honda Accord with a bed a truck?
  14. My JT-Rubicon deal just fell through...

    Sadly, everything you're describing is perfectly normal if you're willing to play the victim. From my experience, you'll never, ever get a good deal if the vehicle has to be transferred from one dealer to another, unless the selling dealer owns that dealership too. I just did two tough deals...
  15. First impressions after 500 Miles in a FULLY loaded EcoDiesel Gladiator Rubicon

    Nope. Bad ammo. Mushroomed too quick and couldn't penetrate the plastic.
  16. Mojave owners: any issues so far?

    The "stealership" problem isn't a "Jeep thing." Most of them are doing it. Just bought a new Mazda Miata, dealer had the window sticker jacked $3k with paint protection, pinstripes, add on to the brake lights, etc. If you fight, they'll back off. I made them take the car into the shop and remove...
  17. Mojave owners: any issues so far?

    Our 2020 Mojave needs the dreaded steering gear replacement, which fortunately, the dealer here in Ocala didn't even blink about replacing. A lot of the roads here in Florida are straight as an arrow for long distances, and I can sit in the passenger seat watching the wife turn the steering...
  18. Progress of building and delivering the Eco-Diesel

    There's always punishment for being first when it comes to vehicles. Ugh!
  19. New JT Gladiator Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    Tried looking at that FOX steering stabilizer and the link is broke on the Mopar site. Is that an accessory for all Jeeps, or do any of them such as the Rubicon or Mojave come with that one standard? Is this the right one for the Gladiator? Mopar Part #:77072360AB This the part number for the...
  20. Rough Deal on Trades?

    That's not necessarily true. Vehicle dealers will loot any and all available funds from a buyer. However, negative equity in a scenario of tough negotiation by the buyer can restrict or reduce the dealer's ability to steal money from the customer. Case in point, it's the end of the month and a...
