RE: Cell phone booster

I have multiple Wilson Electronics boosters. The name change to Weboost came with a price increase. You can still find the Wilson branded products on Amazon and other retailers. As stated they are not magic. With Verizon, I average 18db gain using the Sleek. I also have a Wilson Mobile 4G capable of upto 5 devices. While advertised at 50db, I usually see 35db gain. Best gain only possible when your device is very close to the internal antenna. The Mobile 4G has a 5ft area from the internal antenna. Anything more than 1ft from the internal antenna will see signal gain decrease. Not sure if Wilson Electronics/Weboost can accommodate the new Sprint Spark 4G. The older Sprint 4G should be ok. Wilson prices fluctuate on Amazon. The first link I posted for the Sleek all 4G, 3G and 1x was $125 a few weeks ago. Seems to be $148 right now. Second link is the 5 device Mobile 4G. Expect to pay about $80 extra for the Weboost label. Wilson General Purpose 4G on Amazon Wilson Mobile 4G on Amazon

RE: Need help on my power windows that are broke!

My 2006 Dodge had multiple broken wires in the wire loom door opening. Not sure if GM vehicles have the same issue. Do the rear door speakers work?

RE: Wet grass tire chains??

Avoid snow chains. Can you install a french drain down the middle in between tire locations? Wood is probably the cheapest option. There are also offroad traction mats. I'll post a link to some cheap units. You are going to need a lot more rock. Also, air down your tires. Traction mat http://www.4wd.com/aux_incl/images.ashx?i=4WD_2790.jpg&partNo=S%2fB&w=330&h=330

RE: 2015 Renegade vs Wrangler

I do know one thing for sure, that Renegade is right up there with the ugliest vehicles ever made. Are there any sales of this thing? Has not gone on sale yet. It should be on the market very soon.

RE: 2015 Renegade vs Wrangler

The Renegade in the video is a Trailhawk. The rear locker adds great offroad ability. The problem is the 9spd transmission. Hopefully FCA figures out how to program them. Looks like FCA has more problems with the ZF9 speed. Link There's no question in my mind I would choose the Wrangler out of these two. We are doing a lemon law with the 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. For reasons unknown our 9spd tranny has been flawless. I would also choose the Wrangler Rubicon.

RE: 2014 Ford Escape SE 4wd for toad

Carmax had some 2014 and older CRV's when I looked.

RE: Tire Pressure/Contact Area/Weight

It sounds like your mixing capacity with maximum ability. The actual tire contact patch is very small. Unless you are talking an aired down offroad tire. Even then the contact patch is marginally bigger. At 50psi and 3700lb capacity, sounds like an oversized load D tire, maybe. Many E rated tires max out at 80psi. F, G and H rated tires are found in commercial size. Usually 17.5" or 19.5" for smaller trucks (Ford, Chevy and Dodge). 19.5" and up will likely be found on motorhomes or other commercial equipment.

RE: A "preferred" cigarette lighter cellular charger???

These Motorola chargers are really good quality IMHO. I have used them for several years, on Samsung and LG smartphones. When plugged in, the Motorola emblem end has a faint blue glow, so you can tell it has power. http://i.imgur.com/SvlxgK5l.jpg I have bought plenty of these Motorola chargers from Amazon. OE quality and dirt cheap. Not great for night time driving. I usually have one or two spare in every vehicle. Not many Android devices will charge above 1amp regardless of mobile charger.

RE: Cell Phone Booster with a twist

The Sleek tops out at 2 watts. Probably closer to 1.9 watts.

RE: 410 In Washington (Chinook Scenic Byway)

I have towed my Jeep on a car trailer through there many times. Go 5mph under the speed limit and you will be fine. Its not the curves. Its the uneven road surface that requires slightly lower speed. Unless you have a cell booster expect intermittent cell service.

RE: RG6 TV coax question

Get black RG6. Avoid white for sun resistance.

RE: Airbags or Supersprings

Airbags can unload the suspension. You could be riding an air bubble instead of metal spring.

RE: Old cell phones work in Alaska?

4g has less coverage than 1x or 3g for now. You could also buy a local pay as you go phone when you get to Alaska (burner phone).

RE: Latest 4G Cell Signal Boosters - WeBoost and others

If you can find the Wilson Electronics version it will be cheaper. The name change to Weboost included a price increase. I have two of the following big boosters. It's advertised at 50db gain. Best I've seen is 35db. Which is still alot. To see 35db requires placing device on or next to the internal antenna. Moving out to max range of 5ft lowers db gain. 1st link is the Wilson product. Second link is rebadged at higher price. Wilson Pro 4G Weboost version at higher price

RE: Towing With Refrigerator On Propane

X5? No problem. I have placed a remote temp sensor in the fridge at times. Even when turned on, the fridge can warm up. This also depends on ambient temp and altitude.

RE: Actual cost of repairing aluminum F150

FCA (Chrysler) looks to be using aluminum in the upcoming 2017 Jeep Wrangler redesign. Could be the start of a company wide change over to lighter materials.
