BTW, before anyone asks... All the racket in that video is a combo of a few things First off, bypass shocks are LOUD!!! They make a very loud distinctive clicking noise. The rest of the noise are quick release mounts all over the back of the truck holding fire extinguishers, jack handle and a shovel.

Well it is official, I have what can only be classified as whitepeoplesproblems. and they are all with the new jeep.


Starts off with the jeep was a dealer trade between Chapman and Prestige.

Problem number 1. Chapman assumed that Prestige did a mechanics/receiving inspection on it.

-Windshield washer fluid is empty (who cares)
-Engine has more silicone than half the adult establishments in Vegas (Just wiped it off)
-power steering fluid was over filled (WTF!!)
While trying to make it up the Red Rock side of Tater Ridge, my power streering fluid was over flowing everywhere every time I got a little bit of resistance from a rock or whatever. Had to stop and rinse it off to keep it from eating the paint.

Then today I thought I had a rock chip right in my line of sight, nope there is a piece of something in the laminate of the windshield. And like a nice set of fun bags, once you see them you cannot get it out of your head. I am just hoping that they can change the windshield without gashing up the paint...

But on a positive note, since Wed night I have burned through 2 tanks of gas and 500 miles, got stuck, used 4wd three different times, and had a blast. I think they changed some of the ESC programming because in 2H I was able to do donuts in the snow today while getting plenty of wheel spin. In my 2011 as soon as it lost traction the engine would pull back and cut the throttle, apply the break, or whatever else all of that traction control stuff does.

I was figuring that those mounts would make a whole bunch of racket when I saw you jiggling them around in one of your other vids. Maybe you should follow Andy's lead and get some noise canceling headphones.

I'd love to come out and take some "amateur professional" pictures that you could use for advertising. Maybe we could work something out?
