    Have had similar issues with my 16 JKU. I have rear LED fog lights and whenever the JK is ‘live’ 2 of the LED’s in each rear fog would be on. So anytime the key was in the JK, the rear fogs would have a residual glow. Not enough to be noticed on the road, but if stood behind the JK you would see it. This is due to the CANBUS system expecting a particular resistance on lightning circuits, that LED’s don’t give. Stray current running through the circuit would not normally be an issue, but with an LED’s you get a bulb on when it shouldn’t be. If you swop back, do you still get the same problem, if not then it’s the resistance, or lack of, on the circuit that’s the problem. Some LEDs will have a built in resistance and if you can find one for the interior light then that should solve the issue. For my JKU, I was able to add a resistor to the rear fog light circuit and it solved the problem. Let us know if the problem persists if you swop back, as it might then be something else.

    We all know about really serious offroading and what extremely difficult and challenging terrain can be overcome, or not, resulting in possible major damage. Take a look at the british trials champs if you want to see some. Even at our events some of our members tackle some amazingly tough obstacles, but you don't have to. Insurance folk always tell you to worry and the industry has to assume the worst possible scenario. Tony is right. If you stick with sensible people, driving shiny cars and do what the leaders tell you you should be able to find plenty to keep you happy at our events. Nowadays I use my classic YJ for offroad events. Even though I've been off road in one way or another all my life, I'm not an expert, and the last thing I want to do is damage my car because its almost irreplaceable. Scratches can be an issue on some routes so I carry a pair of garden loppers and a pruning saw for chopping off anything ominous. Common sense rules, its your decision and your responsibility. I'm sure other members with Renegades can help with your tow point queries etc. At the end of the day, you probably take more risk 'urban racing' than you will offroading and you won't be insured doing that either. (Ps if you want to drive fast take up real motor racing, you will soon find out how good you are. Lol)

    I have on my wrangler a set of 4 excellent BFG KM2s plus a matching spare, so 5 altogether size 235/75/15 . 4 on my car were fitted new (the spare was little hardly used I guess) just before I bought the car and have now done about 2500 miles. The car has a body lift so I would like to fit the same tyres but 31s and I don't have room to keep the existing set if I replace them. Would anyone be interested in buying them in time with my getting a new set(before camp I hope). I was thinking around £300 for all five which is less than half price for new(about £750). They will fit YJs, XJs, TJs and possibly others with 15" no problem. (I had this size on my last XJ and they were gr8)

    I don’t know what routes have been planned for the 3 days but I would have thought that you’d probably be OK on a lot of the N. Yorks lanes this time of year, Tong you can pick and choose which routes you do around the site, Lake District.......hmmm, no gonna need a bigger 4X4, but with any luck you’ll be able to hitch a ride along with someone for that.

    38 degree track temp. Realised my ac needs topping up after the mods. Regardless, pulled a 10.8 quarter mile which for two and a half tons on a hot day, made it for one of the fastest daily drivers on the day. 9E5B7F69-1416-4B56-92B2-4E4069C656B9.MOV

    We have a Thule towing hitch mounted rack, too. It's very strong & stable (rather more so than our current PM), easy to fit and to mount the bikes. Strongly recommended. You can get a locking cover for the fixing bolt, so it can't easily be nicked; worth having in England, I suspect. It does weigh as much as the heavier of our bikes, though.

    Ok ... most spray paints need shaking to move the little ball bearing around inside to mix up the paint... you also need to warm the pain if you can ... in the sun is prob the easiest & the part to pain too .. the trick is sweeping motion... keep the can 6” away from the part you want to paint and move the can from left to right .. start 6” before the part and sweep 6” past the part .. when you get near the part that’s when you press the Nozzel and spray the paint .. then you let go past the part but continue the sweep .. every time you sweep you spray ... Once you have covered the part ... let it dry then spray again up till your happy .. hope this helps john

    We have a Thule 2 bike rack. It clamps and locks onto the tow ball. It tilts so you can open the tailgate even when loaded. Bought it for the Patriot and now use it on the Wrangler. Well made and easy to use, if a little expensive! Rob

    I know what you mean, but I deliberately did not mention the name of the club, and I checked that the date would not clash with any JOC events, I think it would have been better to have let me know at the time that you were deleting my post, you could have just sent me a message, or said that you were deleting my post, I think it is in the best interest of us all, that we get the most out of our very expensive toys, all the other clubs and forums have no problem with mentioning other clubs events, after all we are all in one great big club, you enter that when you buy a jeep. Just my opinion, not wanting to upset anyone.

    Just added my first decals - small fry compared to most I know but I was really concerned about doing these ..... I was certain it would go wrong. Quite happy with outcome though.

    Two old fashioned 'Krooklocks' on the steering wheel, visible deterrent, disconnect the battery and remove it if leaving for any length of time, or put a concealed switch in the starting circuit somewhere. Or make your truck look as dirty, rusty and totally unsaleable as possible so they'll go nick something else. Oh, like all Jeeps ....LOL!! - oh no, that's landy's! Good tips about the keys though. Keep them as far away as possible from the vehicle, even when in the house.

    RFID pouch, or cookie tin in microwave. However, if they hang out near you when you lock or unlock your car — they will get your frequency then.

    I keep my Jaguar keys in a RFID pouch in my house, as you should with any car that has keyless entry and starting, not sure if your renegade has that or not.

    As a temporary fix to a leaking pipe in my garden pond I used a spare radiator hose from my WG and this got me thinking...... has anyone else used a part designed for their Jeep for other purposes?

    You would have thought they would have moved the crap out of the back and given it a clean inside. Looks like it’s just been parked and photos taken while, no preparation

    10 safety Tips Green laning & off roading is one of the more exciting hobbies you can experience. Going off road opens your eyes to places you would not otherwise see. It also challenges you, as the terrain is far different from what you are accustomed to driving on. And you can find yourself in a remote and very hostile environment in just a few hours. Follow these very important Tips for a safer and more enjoyable ride. 1, Let someone know where you will be and when you expect to return. This applies to all trips, not just those in challenging areas. People have been known to get stuck or lost in relatively easy terrain. Should something happen and you're unable to leave the area or call for help, your friends or family will know the area you are in. 2. Always have at least one other vehicle along. This ensures that you will have transportation out in the event your vehicle becomes stuck or damaged and can't be fixed there. Plus, the extra vehicle means additional manpower to help with problems. 3. Pack the proper gear. Even a Sunday drive can turn sour. Pack the proper gear incase you get stuck, also pack first a first aid box to handle medical emergencies that may occur. 4. Tie everything down inside. Your gear will go flying around if you roll over or lay the vehicle on its side. Loose items become missiles which can injure and kill anyone inside. 5. Everyone wears a seatbelt, just like when you drive on paved roads. You and your passengers will get jostled around quite a bit on many of the trails. Plus, the possibility for a rollover or crash exists at any time. The big rock you suddenly hit could cause you or your passengers to go flying out a window. Make sure everyone is belted in. 6. Arms and legs must remain inside. Many trails run through narrow passageways. Any arms or legs hanging outside can get torn off by the trees, cliff walls, or rocks just outside your vehicle. If the vehicle begins to tip your instinct is to put your hand out. There is no way you will be able to stop a vehicle this way. Roll your windows up if you can't control the urge. Also, make sure no one holds onto the roll bar. Their fingers will get smashed in the event of a roll over. Hands can also be injured if you drive under low-hanging branches. 7. Quit if you become tired. Off-roading requires the utmost concen-tration. Any letdown can lead to an accident and perhaps death. If you feel fatigued at all, pull over and rest, or let someone else drive. Do not force it. 8. Lock it down. When driving off-road, you are seldom on level ground. Make sure your vehicle will not roll away from you. When you stop, put the vehicle in park, apply the parking brake, and turn off the engine. 9. Do not hang on a vehicle. If the vehicle gets stuck in a precarious position, do not try to pull it down or otherwise tip it by hand. And absolutely do not climb on the vehicle. Use the proper tools and techniques, and always be a safe distance away. A vehicle can and will crush you if given the chance. 10. Treat winches and high-lift straps with respect. The straps, clevises, and other pieces are under extreme tension when in use. Inspect all parts before using, and stand clear while you are trying to recover a vehicle. A failure in gear or rigging can be lethal to you and by standers.

    @Volant165 having looked at the pictures and videos I've determined that my Renegade Longitude is not up to spec to do any of the trails. Also, I don't want to void my Insurance seeing as I declared I will not be off roading. Most importantly, my Renegade does not have any recovery points and any use of the little tow hook may result in ripping out my bumper. How can I get a refund on my purchase? Order number #509 if that helps.
