Why all the EXCITEMENT over an Electric Jeep?!?!?

“Instant torque!”…”Sealed drivetrain for water crossings!”…”No more MPG worries!” and the list of silly comments goes on about the announcement from Jeep about the electrification of the complete Jeep line up.

With the Jeep brand experiencing record sales volumes, nearly year over year, they are faced with the conundrum that the rest of the automotive industry is, electrification.  Jeep is simply electrifying their line up to meet the government’s Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) Standards.

I have written about my take on an electric Jeep previously, and you can link to that post here.

Jeep is electrifying its entire line up simply to satisfy the CAFE standard as their sales numbers have made Jeep a greater player in the overall automotive market.

I find it laughable how many “sheeple”  believe first in global warming, and secondly that electric vehicles could have any impact on the fallacy of global warming!!!

Prager University has produced the most succinct explanation of why electric vehicles are NOT “Green”.

IF electric vehicles were ultimately more efficient AND better for water crossings and instant torque, why didn’t Jeep electrify their line up years ago?!?!?

I am sure that I’ll get all kinds of hate for my take on electric Jeeps, and I say thank you!!!  Thank you for buying an electric Jeep, so that Jeep can continue to produce an internal combustion engine-powered Jeep for me to buy!!!

It’s a Jeep, NOT a boat!!! IT ALREADY HAS A NAME!!!

As my buddy Dan demonstrated at Bundy Hill last year, a Jeep is not a boat, they don’t float!!!

Boats were given names, THOUSANDS of years ago when humans still believed in all kinds of superstitions such as the world was flat, and there were Gods of every season and any other unexplainable phenomenon.

RiverKeepers.org explains the origins of boat names very well.

You DO NOT need a name for your Jeep, and stop asking this INSANE question on social media!!!

Cars & Coffee – May 19, 2019

I attended the first Cars & Coffee of 2019 at the site of the former Walter P. Chrysler Museum, on the FCA World Headquarters Campus.

Jeep brought out the J6, Flatbill and M-715 Five-Quarter Concepts, and they were VERY impressive!!!

The J6 was my favorite, however I don’t think that Jeep will put it into production.

The Flatbill Concept highlights the extremes that the Gladiator can be taken too!!!

The M-715 Concept looks too much like a concept to me, and not enough like a Jeep.  It certainly had a crowd around it!!!

Cars & Coffee is a regular monthly event that Chrysler has held, since they built the museum.  Unfortunately, Fiat closed the museum and turned it into offices for Maserati and Alfa Romeo.


As mentioned previously, Moparinsiders.com reported that the Chrysler Museum may be making a come back at the old Viper plant.

There were several nice Jeeps on display as well.

Cars & Coffee also had many GREAT looking vehicles on display!!!

STEERSMARTS

While attending the recent Motor City Aftermarket Indoor Jeep Meet & Greet, I got a chance to see STEERSMARTS product up close and personal.  It’s impressive stuff!!!

STEERSMARTS offers a complete line of bolt-in steering components for JK and JL, and will work with stock and modified suspensions.

If your Jeep is experiencing death wobble, there’s a 99% chance that it is simply NOT a steering stabilizer, no matter how many times you ask on Facebook!!!

I recommend replacing the failed steering component(s) with a STEERSMARTS component.

Extreme Terrain has a GREAT video on death wobble, and how to diagnose.

Check out STEERSMARTS today!!!

Motor City Aftermarket

Need a bumper, rock rails or tube doors for your JK/JL?  Need tube doors for your Renegade?  Check out Motor City Aftermarket!!!

I attended the indoor Jeep Meet & Greet and was VERY impressed with the products and Jeeps on display.

Motor City Aftermarket products are made from “tank DNA” as they state on their web-site, as they are closely partnered with a defense partner that produces parts for the M1 Abrams tank, Stryker vehicle, EFV, and Humvee.

All of their products are designed for no-drill installation, welded by AWS Certified welders and finished with SaltShield Coating System.

Motor City Aftermarket has what I think a great solution for trail mirrors on the JL, when the factory doors are removed.  From the looks of them, I would think that there would be no vibration with them mounted to the rock catcher!!!

In addition to great products on display, Motor City had 40+ Jeeps inside on display, including Big Chief and Frakenbrute!!!

Shaun Day from Stinger Motorsport drove in their King of the Hammers rig and had it on display!!!
