Replaced that old somewhat more restrictive airbox with an aFe cold air intake with dry filter.
Out of curiosity, do you wheel at all? Are you worried about sucking water/hydrolocking? I got into it with some dude on FB the other day over my K&N saying that I would hydrolock it.
I am curious about how you hooked up the rear pod lights?
Looks awesome! I ordered the MOF front bracket a couple days ago to put on 2 Rigid pod LEDs...Can't wait!
Took Badger in primarily for the V69 recall, and then asked them to rotate the tires, and do the alignment since I knew it was off with excessive negative camber.
I also had them diagnose the issues I had with the power liftgate, as well as why 4Low wasn’t able to engage.
The dealer determined the motor for the liftgate failed, which I already suspected. The lack of 4Low was more interesting as they determined “an internal failure inside the PTU.”
I asked them to quote me on those potential repairs, and it was $495 plus tax for a new motor unit for the liftgate. For a replacement PTU, they quoted me $2311 Plus tax. I told them to hold off on those items though.
I do likely at some point will have the PTU replaced, but not now. The liftgate I should be able to replace myself provided the wire connections are not difficult to get at.
Does over $2300 for a new PTU seem about right? I was considering on asking one of my local mechanics who has worked on my Jeep before, and could see what kind of quote they would provide.
And before you ask, I have over 133k miles on it.
$2300 is right about what I paid for PTU replacement last year. From a trusted independent mechanic in my city. So if you can get that same price at the dealer, I'd say that's very reasonable. It sucks, and it's expensive, but market value-wise it's a reasonable price.Does over $2300 for a new PTU seem about right?

How close is your hood the lights when you open it?
