    Funny getting older. Went to check on a recall for my airbag. Didn’t even have my Jeep with me. Sir you know you qualify to take a jku as a loaner if you like. Yes I know that trick no thanks

    I haven't even taken mine in for the recall. I don't trust that I won't get my Jeep back with some added problems. I fucking hate the dealers around here.

    I want to get a drone for this exact type of thing.

    Which one did you get?

    I'm back to no heat in the Jeep. That stupid POS auto-temp control either isn't working, or that stupid servo controlled flapper is stuck or fried. I get cold air, but can't get it to blend in any hot. Engine temp is fine.

    No idea where that damn thing is in the dash, but suspect it's in the worst possible place.

    Heater controls and the heater core are the first things down the assembly line. The rest of the vehicle is assembled around them.

    What kind of Jeep? Wranglers are pretty easy to work on compared to other cars/trucks. On the JK's people have found a quick way to get the heater core out by cutting a support bracket out of the way. Sure beats taking half the dash out to get to it. Older Jeeps like TJ's, YJ's and CJ's are a breeze in comparison.

    I have a Mavic Air. It is super easy to fly. The video you see is like the third time I flew the drone.

    May not be the best place to post this, but I'm looking to get out of my 2016 500EXC for a Jeep to take the family along with me. If anyone's looking to make a swap feel free to reach outl.

    Just picked this up two weeks ago. Very mint 2006 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. Low miles and SUPER clean. Has an older Terraflex 4" Long Arm kit on it, but we are about to do some major work to this Jeep. Parts are on order!

    Gear change from 4.10 to 5.13
    Triangulate Rear Suspsension / Diff brace with adjustable long upper / lower control arms
    Adjustable Long Radius arms up front
    King Coil Overs
    37x12.50x17 Maxxis Trepadoor MT's
    Beadlock Wheels
    Front Axle brace / sleeve / knuckle braces
    Currie heavy duty steering
    Full MetalCloak 4" Arched fenders, sliders, corners and rear flares
    JCR Mauler front bumper
    Warn Zeon 10s winch with synthetic line
    Alpine double DIN head unit
    Alpine 45x4 power pack amp for dash and soundbar speakers
    Alpine 5.25 coax speakers for dash pods and soundbar

    JL Audion 500/1 mono amp for sub
    Rigid lights


    Roof Rack is coming off.
    Hard top is coming off, but we're keeping it.

    I will run the factory Rubicon Lockers until I break them. I did already add an aftermarket vacuum pump for the locker actuation.

    Should be a nice build when we're finished!

    I can only imagine what it looked like from the drivers seat, if it looks like that from over here

    I’d bet $1 it’s a RC crawler. Suspension movement and weight transfer doesn’t look right

    I have to say, some of the RC videos ive seen recently are incredible but I think that one is real. There are passengers moving around in there
