Re: 2014 with rubicon wheels and RRO products

No need. My speedometer was as accurate with larger tires (by GPS). Still some off though.

Re: Rattling sound down under the front left wheel JGC 2014 WK2

Let us know what you find out. I have experienced the techs lack of enthusiasm for chasing rattles myself (and still have mine). Pulled the front left wheel 10 minutes ago to triple-check the brakes...

Re: Leaking transmission ac condensor cooler

TYC 3893 Replacement Condenser with Prime shipping, now looks like only $65! That's about $30 less than I paid 6 months ago.

Re: Jeep grand cherokee rubicon

Plenty of offroading which did cut the life, however the WK2 is heavy, and mud tires never last as long as street tires (they are usually a softer compound, etc.). I had just under 40k on my JKU...

Re: 2014 with rubicon wheels and RRO products

I am running the RRO 2.5" lift, but the tires/wheels fit before the lift with some rub offroad. As this replaced my Rubi, and living in the mountains, this has spent more time offroad than probably...

Re: Jeep grand cherokee rubicon

Noise at all speeds is definitely more than stock. I have a set of Blizzak winter tires and am always amazed at how much quieter the Jeep gets when I switch. I also notice about 1-2mpg increase due...

Re: Rubicon wheels with pics

I have a 2011 Laredo E with Rubicon wheels and tires. I was able to fit them for normal driving without the lift, but I added the RRO 2.5" lift and now have no problems rubbing, even at full flex...

I've been chasing something similar in my 2011 WK2 for 6+ months now. Replaced much of what you have, and all of the plastic fender/bumper clips. Mine rattles while braking though, too. Your issue...

2011 WK2 CEL Mystery

My 2011 WK2 (3.6L) had the cylinder 6 misfire issue, so the dealer replaced that head this spring. Less than 2000 miles later I get the CEL again and similar, rough-running characteristics. Pull the...

Re: Leaking transmission ac condensor cooler

How did this end up for you? My 2011 started the leak a couple weeks ago, and seems to be getting worse. Pulled the bumper today to get a better look and discovered same diagnosis... I'm at about 55k.

Re: 2014 with rubicon wheels and RRO products

Your Jeep looks great! I do love the white, but my JKU Rubi was white, so I needed a change this time.

Have you discovered the full Rubi spare fits below the cargo floor?!

That is at the top of Mill Creek Canyon (out of SLC). I actually worked at DV for over a decade and still have a pass there. If you ever see a guy on teles, going too fast, that's me. :)
