  1. Aftermarket air intake system recommendations?

    gears won't help you either if you're already at the optimal gear ratio. unless you are talking about gaining MPG without re calibrating your speedo, then you can get a fake mpg boost because it shows you have driven more miles than you actually have. the bed cap could give you a small gain...
  2. Aftermarket air intake system recommendations?

    As someone who has tuned their own vehicle and done tons of mods (not on a pentastar), the bolt on additions (intake, exhaust, etc) have minimal to no impact without calibrating the fuel mapping. In some cases it can make it worse because the extra air flow that in theory sounds great, skews...
  3. Round trip to mountains with 6850 lb travel trailer (max tow, 2” spacer lift/34s)

    I think this is what is missing in most threads where people dispute power. Elevation makes a huge difference. In Calgary we are at 3,500ft and you get into the mountains and things get a bit dicey. It's not like Colorado where you're getting to 10,000ft on a road but 5,000ft mountain passes...
  4. Round trip to mountains with 6850 lb travel trailer (max tow, 2” spacer lift/34s)

    maybe if your trailer is fish tailing, then the increased tension from the outside chain would prevent it from going as far but otherwise I would agree that it doesn't do much in the conventional sense of sway control unless you have the friction brake add on. All that being said, with the...
  5. My door and top storage DIY solutions.... cart and hoist.

    just be careful with those pulley wheels. i had similar ones with claims they were capable of hoisting 500lbs used for a winch powered bike lift i made. maybe they are with some kind of thick rope like cable but with steel winch cable, they failed within a year of use and it turns out they are...
  6. Water and Profanity

    i really hope they sort this sooner rather than later. rain is one problem but imagine snow melting on the roof in the winter on a sunny day, then freezing because it pools in the channels and then causes damage.
  7. Anyone towing on 40’s

    another thing i thought of is that with the diesel the limiting factor is air flow through the grille. being your engine is working harder at lower speed, the reduction in cooling capacity is probably even worse than 25%? not sure if air flow vs cooling is a linear relationship or not but that...
  8. Anyone towing on 40’s

    In theory, at least 25% reduction in towing capacity based on 25% increase in diameter plus whatever whatever shift from not in peak power. Drivability while towing probably not great either. I personally would not do it without a re-gear and depending on how high your lift is, might be rough...
  9. 2021 Gladiator EcoDiesel Official EPA MPG and towing capacity

    that's a really washy way of reporting it. that's like saying the time between operators is negligible, which it's not. it's almost like saying UPS can take a package from Alaska to South Africa in under an hour which is the amount of time someone is physically holding the box. lol. Anyways...
  10. First Drive Review of 2021 Jeep Gladiator Diesel by TruckTrend

    is it just me or does anyone else feel less informed by reading that article? I swear there was no relevant information whatsoever in that article that you couldn't have already known from a gas review of the JT.
  11. 2021 Gladiator EcoDiesel Official EPA MPG and towing capacity

    It takes about 24-30 hours for the average vehicle to be built from the time it starts on the assembly line.
  12. 2021 Gladiator EcoDiesel Official EPA MPG and towing capacity

    Just caught the difference here, didn’t notice your 6% grade comment. I’m gonna guess buddy in Denver is in the same boat as I am in Calgary where you get 12%+ sections in the Rockies.
  13. 2021 Gladiator EcoDiesel Official EPA MPG and towing capacity

    it's combination of both. if you have one without the other, you're probably ok. I mean i have towed my trailer about 12,000km in the past year and still doing it so it's not the end of the world. Just annoying to listen to and I think a matter of time before something gives.
  14. 2021 Gladiator EcoDiesel Official EPA MPG and towing capacity

    it depends whether what you're towing is a big heavy sail or just a heavy load that doesn't give you a ton of wind resistance. travel trailer is 8ft x 12ft sail. you could tow way more without engine struggling if you're towing a trailer that is 6ft x 2ft wind facing footprint (ie. open cargo...
  15. 2021 Gladiator EcoDiesel Official EPA MPG and towing capacity

    It does though. I currently have a grand cherokee with the v6 which has 6800lb towing capacity. I have a 17ft travel trailer that is 4000lb dry, probably 5000lb loaded. Towing flat on highway going 110km/h it shifts between 4th and 5th with no wind. If you get a head wind, it doesn't leave...
  16. 2021 Gladiator EcoDiesel Official EPA MPG and towing capacity

    I was looking at the diesel for towing so the truck wouldn't be at redline every time I drive through a mountain pass. I'm assuming this thing will still outperform the v6 towing but them stating the max tow is less than the v6 is concerning? IDK, the torque numbers say otherwise so I'm left...
  17. 2021 Gladiator EcoDiesel Official EPA MPG and towing capacity

    What am I missing here? Torque is 50% higher on the diesel, yet towing capacity is decreased. Aside from folks not towing wanting a bit of extra range on a tank, what's the point? Why not save yourself 4k and bring 2 x 5 gallon jerrys? or if you're never going to tow or use the payload, get...
  18. 2021 Jeep Gladiator Build & Price is UP

    I spotted this as well. Pretty sure it was 1,200 for 2020.
