TRMS? Who needs it…

I’m working on my own version of the Trail Rail Management System using some strut channel and spring clips. Got the tailgate mounted this morning and I’ll work on the rest this weekend!

The strut channel (Unistrut) is available at “good” hardware stores or industrial-supply stores. In Montreal, I like Quincaillerie Notre-Dame, a RONA affiliate that carries tons more products your average home center. The 3 mounting points use 6mm bolts and the length of channel is 63cm or 24¾ inches.

I have mounted an old Truck Luggage bag and a carrier for my usual trailer hitch arm.  The striped duct tape is to help know where to stop loading the back so the gate will close properly!

Sting-Gray JILL has arrived!

Hi, I’m Tim, the guy who runs this fan site. I originally ordered my 2018 JL Sting-Gray Rubicon back in March 2018, the DAY that FCA Canada opened orders for Sting-Gray, colour code PDN and also for the 2.0l eTorque Turbo. However, after about a month of no status, I contacted my salesman to inquire as to the delay. Turns out the 2.0l Turbo would not be offered on the Rubicon Unlimited (until?) and I switched to the 3.6l V6 immediately. 10 weeks later, voila! Here she is in all her glory! I bring her some tomorrow (June 20, 2018).
