I noticed it when I drove the 2015 we have here on the lot, back to back with mine. :iono:

Stupid complaint but valid.
Curious to see how they will handle it, their average customer doesn’t come in until the engine is falling out or overheating and someone with OCD level of over 9000, wanting things factory right will be interesting observe.
I predict a 90% chance of :plac: after this experience.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

Found a little mud to play in, but the OHV area I was trying to get to was closed :( It’s in a national park/forest, so I don’t know if its closed because of the .gov shutdown or what. No way around the gate and I didn’t have bolt cutters with me.
If it's in a national park, it's due to the .gov shutdown. Good on you for not going in anyway (bolt cutters or whatever). The morans driving in Joshua tree, mowing over the eco system, need to be executed.

Sometimes, it's hard to tell if you're on a trail or not. It's not worth the risk.
Thank you. In terms of head shaking, lose your faith in humanity actions, its right up there with looting during natural disasters.

I can always replace it myself, but this will be a good test.

Dang. I didn't know that was happening out in Joshua Tree. Sucks.

Looked the area up, and it's the Cleveland National Forest (wut) so yeah, that's why it was closed off. Bummer. But we should get more rain in a few weeks and hopefully the shutdown is over by then.

I've wheeled and camped there. A lot of fun to be had.

Yeah from the maps I found online there are quite a few good trails out there. I was just gonna do the easy one Espinosa Trail. Bronco Flats looks fun, but I'd want to go out with people who know what they're doing.

Yea, definitely go out with someone else that knows their way around. It's REALLY easy to get lost out there.

Yeah, go 2-up.

Bad idea to go solo.

Anyways, dropped the :jeep: off for diller things today.

#1) Freedom top leak @ B-pillar on both sides.
#2) Radiator leak, driver side of radiator.
#3) Driver side axle seal leak.
#4) Stiff turn signal, hard to disengage once engaged.

:popcorn:

Let's see how this goes.
mine did that so often. its SUPER weird. I dont think it was 100% of the time either, more like 75%. I legit wondered if the PO just NEVER used it before or it was a poor design.

I also never brought it to the :dillerman: :lolol:
