    My JKUR tire pressure monitor was set to a minimum of 38 psi. Lowering it to 27 psi made it handle much better. Probably because it doesn't have the floppy tires anymore, now it has 8 ply LT's.

    I have one of those, and a "real" Hi Lift.
    Honestly don't see a lot of difference in them, besides the knock off is half the price.

    Sad day.... First potential brine and snow in distant forecast, overnight freezes, so on went the hardtop for winter. IMG_20191102_150950713_HDR.jpg

    This is when the motorcycles get parked and the jeep comes out to play.

    Wife claimed my JK after we sold her Mini, said i couldnt take it off road (i know i know) So i retaliated by buying a Jeep thats sole intention is to be used for fun. Something that wont make you cry if you get a scratch or dent. So this followed me home.

    Ticked a big one from the dad box on Sunday. Took both kids in the Jeep for the first time.

    It went well

    Help. Anyone recognize the make of this shock? Only have the outline of the mfgrs sticker. I think it is the maker of the 2-3" lift also.

    Six new plugs plus one new coil and she's back on the road. The coil was the real problem, but with 110,000+ miles it needed plugs too.

    Yup, that's where I broke my ankle on a DRZ400, at the top of the steps. :muutt Still have a plate in it. Since that prevented me from completing the circle over Imogene, I went back and completed it in the JK.

    Love Colorado. Took the Jeep year before last and had a great time. Usually I ride the bike but wanted a change. Jeep just got back from shop. All 4 oil galley bolts loose, 4 cam phasers, 4 oil control valves, 1 crankshaft position sensor, all warranty covered, 2015 with 62,000 miles. Took two tries at the dealer but I think they got it this time.

    From Colorado year before last.
