  1. This makes me uncomfortable

    No the $90 covers on the 4 miles they have open in Maryland last summer, you can't even make it to the VA line anymore. Apparently there is some kind of endangered bird that lives there and that is why they have closed the majority of the beach to vehicles.
  2. $59,999 OTD price for an LE - good?

    I'm not going to argue about this. I have the actual career experience as an F&I person, you don't have any other than your experience of buying a few vehicles. I've been involved in the sale of over 1000 vehicles to retail customers, you've been involved in how many, ZERO. You always...
  3. This makes me uncomfortable

    Unfortunately Asseteague only allows you to drive on about 4 miles of beach and not the rest of I think was 14 miles to Chincoteague, VA nor any of the interior off road trail that runs parallel to the bay. Now the permit is $90 for a year, I don't think they sell day passes, at least they...
  4. Hard pull to the right after lift install

    oops, old eyes, small print, should be wearing my glasses ;-)
  5. $59,999 OTD price for an LE - good?

    I used to be an F&I Manager at a large dealership, you still continue to show your ignorance of the real inner workings of dealerships and how you rely on what a dealer tells you to be the gospel truth. Every dollar they take off of the price of the new car is a dollar less that you get on...
  6. LMAO Dealer price to do my lift

    Dealers have the highest overhead to cover and therefore the highest per hour labor rate. It's not that they are going to overcharge you for parts you bring to them, they are going to charge you their standard labor rate that they charge everyone else, which in my case is double what my...
  7. $59,999 OTD price for an LE - good?

    You can't really compare OTD because different states, cities, counties will have different fees and taxes. Compare actual price of the vehicle for any real idea if you are getting a good deal. I've seen 10% as being a target, I've also heard of several dealers in CA selling for 12% or...
  8. Hard pull to the right after lift install

    I didn't see any mention of brakes. Every time I've had a pull issue over the last 40 years, it resulted from a brake issue.
  9. Beat by Amazon yet again

    I got screwed by third party vendors on Amazon before. Unless the item is listed as PRIME on Amazon, I will no longer buy. I think you have better luck buying on Ebay than 3rd Party Amazon with Ebays and Pay Pal buyer protection. Good luck. Having said that, Amazon isn't going...
  10. Max Tow vs Rubicon for Towing

    While they list IMO a weight limit for the 3.6 that I think is well beyond what it should be considering the motor, that is just my opinion. I've towed 5000 lbs and it was a struggle going up a mountain in AZ and it bordered on overheating. By the time I got to the top, I was doing 25mph...
  11. Overpriced aftermarket parts...

    Mopar parts installed by the dealer can be covered by your warranty. In many cases you are paying for the name brand. In most cases you are paying for the R&D. While there are 2 million JKs out there, the numbers of JL's and JT's are still small, the market is not that big and there is...
  12. This makes me uncomfortable

    Even with all the new corrosion resistance built into modern Jeeps, I'm still not crazy enough to drive mine thru salt water. You just can't wash all of the salt out of the nooks and crannies. I do like to hit the beach on Asseteague Island when I'm back on the east coast though.
  13. Is this a new orange color for the 2021 Gladiator?

    That looks like the classic "burnt orange" color as I used to call it that was on Wagoneers, J-Trucks and CJs of the 80's. I had a Wagoneer Limited, a Cherokee Chief and a CJ7 in that color. They also offered a similar color in the JK in I think 2010. I would definitely buy it again.
  14. We’re Digging This Comanche and Scrambler Inspired Retro Gladiator Look

    I'd still like to know where I can get a Honcho decal kit like this for my JT
  15. CB or Ham, the better route?

    While it is a good presentation, it's not completely factual. https://www.jpole-antenna.com/2018/08/13/baofeng-uv-5r-radios-illegal-the-real-story/ While the FCC isn't actively looking for people that are using these radios for purposes they are not certified for, if someone or a group of...
  16. 315/70/17 vs 35x12.50x17

    Everyone will have an opinion on tires so I'll give mine for whatever it's worth. I've gone with 35's on by a number of companies Yokohama, BFG, Goodyear, Atturo and a few others over the many years I've been building my own Jeeps. The last time I bought Yokohamas M/T tire the tread was...
  17. About to make a deal and last minute the dealer tells me the vehicle has over 4000 miles...

    If the dealer hid that from you until the last minute, after he had you on the hook, then can you really trust them or anything else they've said or didn't say? Get a more substantial discount or find another dealer I say.
  18. Almost 200 People Arrested and 2 Shot During Go Topless Jeep Weekend

    It is sad how a few (or in this case 200) can ruin it for the rest of us. Bad press like this tends to make events like this to be banned in the future. Time will tell.
  19. Daily cost of diesel vs gas?

    When it comes to towing, pound for pound, gas or diesel is going to suffer the MPG rating. My gas powered Dodge truck with a 360 went from 15 mpg to 7 when I hitched up a 7,000lb trailer. The diesel is going to loose MPG too but where it will shine is going up hills when the extra torque...
  20. Daily cost of diesel vs gas?

    Interesting but thankfully someone in the aftermarket will figure a way around that just as there will be devices to boost both HP and Torque. Still even a 500 lbs lower towing capacity, 7150 lb capacity is still way more than most of us would need.
