    Delrin Bushings on the JL --NEEDED OR NOT?

    I am a JK owner but I have a question on the JL. I know that they sell Delrin bushings for JL's but I have heard conflicting things about the current set up. I have heard that there are delrins installed, I have heard that the current bushings are similar to a JK BUT they are smaller therefore making them easier to take out. Even without tools. I have heard there is a lip on top AND bottom of the bushings.

    All speculation and nothing solid

    Has anyone replaced their bushings on their JL with Delrins? If so can you detail the process? If it is the same as the JK just say that.

    Thanks and happy Jeeping.

    I can’t comment on replacing the bushings, but I will say that they are definitely not needed. I pulled my doors off my JLU for the first time recently and because of the new door design I almost ripped those suckers off and sent them flying they came off so easy! A hinge upgrade is definitely not needed in my opinion!

    Thanks man. I see you are in the great state of Texas which is I am thinking free of road salt and calcium chloride. We get pounded with this stuff in the winter here in Wisconsin so if those bushings are still as the JK's are then corrosion is not if but when. Usually real quick.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
