  1. JT tailgate box. This is the ticket right here

    Now someone has come up with the real solution for utilizing the tailgate in a real functional manner. Way to go Reaper! For those of us still wanting cup holders, I’m sure they can be cut in after.
  2. Manual Shift option wears out transmission

    Now that’s a pretty bold statement to make and post this thread saying it but now that I’m just past 4000k kms on my warranty replaced 4th auto transmission, …I decided to try driving this one a little differently to see if the manual shift feature, (I used a lot only for slowing down) had a...
  3. Highly sought after???

    Some have said these Jeep plywood boxes are extremely valuable. I’ve even heard it referred to as “the holy grail”. I was given two by my dealership. The first one was a couple months ago and then they called me yesterday to come in for another. The first one was empty but the second one I...
  4. Power Steering Flush/ Need some Tech procedural info

    .... Needing the info, not because I don't know what I'm doing. I've done the flush myself 3 times on 3 power steering pumps and in all cases, one 500ml bottle of fluid came out and 750ml went back in and in every case the reservoir bottle showed it was full. Hence, I've made the claim that we...
  5. Goodbye 2.0 FOX hello BDS NX2 shocks!

    ….and HELLO BDS NX2 shocks! After 73k kms (45k miles) on my 21 JTR, the wife and I were done with the floating, bouncing and just being scrambled in the cab kind of ride on the fox 2.0’s. Last weekend we had a great time at the Alberta Outdoor (overland) Expo and one vender caught my attention...
  6. For those of us that run a fridge/freezer

    We picked up our first fridge/freezer, did the rear seat delete and fit in a plywood floor (almost complete). Upgraded the batteries. The fridge unit comes with two wires. One for the 12v cigarette plug and the other for the 110v plug. My question is if the unit is plugged in to either of these...
  7. Front Diff Noise

    (21 JTR) Was wheeling today with 33 others at McLean Creek just west of Calgary. Absolutely awesome experience and tons of puddles and deep water to go through. Was a great bunch of people to wheel with …and yes, that is a Subaru that did everything and went everywhere we all did! After getting...
  8. Billie Bars!

    https://billiebars.com/ Got my T-slot BillieBar rack rails late Friday night and put them on! These sit in the Roll-N-Lock T-slot bed rail caps. When I got my Roll-N-Lock tonneau cover back in 2021, I didn’t go for the T-slot bed caps then. Our camping experience packing the truck has always...
  9. What is this?

    Getting ready for my 64k km drivetrain service on my 2021 JTR (25k kms on my 3rd transmission and second engine) and I’m rolling around under the truck and I see this 22mm nut on the bottom back side of the transfer case. It’s not the drain plug and I’m embarrassed to say I’ve never seen it till...
  10. Crap In My Coolant System

    Most people would say that’s normal and I would be one of them BUT do you just leave that crap/assembly sands in there to wear on your water pump till your maintenance schedule tells you to do a flush OR hit it early and get the crap out? This is a bitter sweet moment for me. Again, very...
  11. Changed Transfer Case Oil Early (Photos)

    This is strictly for information purposes. Photo evidence of metals in the oil at just 10k kms (6200 miles). We are either in the camp of changing the fluids when the manufacturer recommends it or we do it earlier because there’s no filter in there and metal bits, no matter how small, doesn’t...
  12. Drifting at the ice track! -first timers

    Last weekend, member Doonan and I had the pleasure of joining my son’s group of friends out at the ice track west of Calgary on the Ghost Dam reservoir for a day of drifting, (mostly losing control, lol). I’ve got the 21 JTR and Doonan has the 20 Overland with a very cool matte blue wrap he did...
  13. Popping noise in the back/Passenger side

    48k kms, JTR. So this low creep speed and tight turning popping noise has been bugging me for a while and after checking all the nuts and bolts in the back and finding them tight, I had to dig a little deeper. I’ve never liked the shocks on the JTR and the wife was really complaining lately...
  14. Nasty Axel U Joint

    (21 JTR, 47k kms- 29k miles) Was experiencing a bit of a shimmy in 4H about a month or so ago which I felt in the steering wheel. Wasn’t bad enough to take it in and be told they can’t replicate but was enough to obsess what’s wrong now. Following that, popping noises in the back on the right...
  15. Engine was left idling…for 3 hours😬

    I got home early the other day from work and my wife had plans to go out with her friend for lunch so I kissed her good bye and threw her the keys and said, have a great time. (If only I could see into the future) When she was done and coming home, she calls me to say she accidentally left the...
  16. Finally! New Engine…and 3rd Transmission Install

    Finally saying goodbye to my coolant consuming engine after 39k kms had guzzled over 40+ ounces of coolant in that time period. FCA didn’t want to replace the engine so my insurance company agreed too. Prior to this, I just had my 8 speed transmission replaced, again, my insurance company...
  17. Second Steering Pump Failure

    On my 2021 Glad Rubi, my first pump was replaced last summer. When it was hot, either idling or driving, the power steering would quit. It never locked, just need big arms to steer. It was replaced under warranty. This time, wife, I and the Great Dane left Calgary for Vancouver for 12 day...
  18. Pinched Front Passenger Brake Line

    Anybody else look at their front passenger brake line next to the brake calliper to see if the line gets pinched when steering full left and right? I saw this this morning when investigating a “click” sound from the front when doing tight low speed turning. Turns out both lower ball joints had...
  19. FCA Canada voids transmission warranty for using AMSOIL.

    FCA CANADA CASE# 83054194 You read the title correctly, AMSOIL does state in all their American advertisements that their oil will not void warranty and they even sell it up here in Canada and provide the same paper work and claims but I’ll be the first to tell openly, the use of their data...
  20. Woke up and had a nightmare

    This is so horrific my Great Dane won’t even go outside on her own. I have to push, pull and drag her outside to do her business. 😫 I guess I get to rub another polish coat on my truck today!
