I also have a 2012, used for highway only. I change it at least once a year. The indicator is adjustable and mine is set at 7500 miles. If we take two trips in one year it will be time for an oil...

If you read it, you will see that the builder has identified every part of his ride (shay) that can break, much as we do with our Jeeps. He has bought or made the strongest part for every function...

2012 GC Best Vehicle Ever!

We bought our 2012 Grand Cherokee Overland Summit new, in June of 2012. We didn't care that we needed a second mortgage and had to sell one of the kids. It was worth it. We bought it for highway...

pipeburn,


I think what you might be missing is the fact that the stock bushings are 1", so when you put in the 2" bushing you are gaining an additional inch, hence the term 1" lift (over stock).

Gut, mein Freund, I'm 70 and still driving a Jeep made 16 years ago.
Back in the '70s we had a '63 Beetle that I held together with parts from an old Erector set!

I suppose another way of saying that would be to form and insert a small shim made out of non-ferrous metal.


None of these Jeeps were 'engineered' or 'designed' to last longer than ten years. ...

Apologies to all. I totally missed that.


If the motor tests good with a direct 12V connection, then the problem is in the switch, wiring, resistor pack, or ground(s). Wiring and grounds don't...

This is just my opinion as an electrical engineer with 40 years of experience.
The fan motor is 21 years old and I'm guessing has never been lubricated since it left the factory.

I use the standard Sillblade and have had no issues. I suppose if the windshield is really curved you would use the Flex Blade. If you are concerned, call them and ask.

I had these on my earlier TJ for 5 years, my current TJ for 7 years, and our GC (WK2) since 2012: http://www.silblade.com/

We've got 80k miles on our 2012 Summit with air suspension, mostly highway miles. No problems and we use it all the time (up, down, up, down). I wish I could get it on my TJ!

The reason your controls (prob the resistor pack) failed, and the reason the fan is drawing more than 20A (that's 240 W @ 12 VDC) is that the motor is shot. The windings or bearings or both have...
