I too had this problem. Mine is a 2012 . This may sound a little strange, but this is what I did about 2 years ago and haven't had a problem since. The speedometer sensor or sending unit has 2 wires connected to it. One is the hot wire, the other is the ground. A simple test light will determine which is which. The unit is on the drivers side near the starter. I took a connector, the kind that you open up and place over a wire then squeeze shut with a pair of pliers, placed this over the ground of the speed sending unit, along with a short piece of wire to use as another ground, to ground directly to the frame, in other words I grounded the ground wire of the speed sending unit to the frame. It has ran perfect ever since. Hope it works for you if you should decide to try .
I'm curious what made you think to double ground the speed sensor. Was you having issues with the speedometer?
Purchased a 2017 4 door Apex series in NC in December. Went to the DMV and had tags in 15 minutes. Today I received a phone call from a DMV official asking questions about the Reeper and informed me that the tags were issued as a mistake. Apparently there is a problem that I am about to be schooled on. Anyone else having trouble

Just purchased a new 4 door reeper 4 and sold my reeper 2 door. after driving it about 60 miles after I bought it ( had180 miles before I got the machine) so less than 300 miles I smelled oil or grease burning so I immediately pulled over to check the problem. I found that the cv boot on the rear drive was slinging grease out. I suppose this was cause from the heat off the exaust just above the drive shaft. due to oreion redoing their website I haven't been able to get a replacement under warranty. never had any problem with the 2 seater just wander why the issue with the4 seater. drive shaft is located in the same spot under the exaust pipe. hard to swallow spending 18000.00 on a machine and can't get it fixed in a timely fashion.

Yes, I believe the last time you posted you mentioned getting it back from your parents. Last I knew you was in Grand Junction Co. I delivered there the other day and coming in on I 70 you can see a lot of area to ride. It got me to wonder if you ever got yours on some of the trails there.
How did the reeper do on the rocks? I'm bringing my old Reeper upto Wyoming and frequently go to Moab. Thinking about taking the reeper down when I go on memorial day....if I have it back up and operating by then.
Funny you posted today. Was thinking about you earlier. Was in Grand Junction and was wondering if you was still in that area and how you and your Reeper was doing.
Yeah, I enjoy the scenery around Moab I'm bringing my diesel liberty for the mild trails, maybe take the reeper on something a little Wilder but nothing that will do damage. I'm not sure if it's geared low enough for the hard stuff. Have you been to top of the world Trail I'm building a mini truck right now for rock crawling 😎
That's funny that you posted today. Was in Grand Junction earlier today and was wondering if you was still in that area and how you and your Reeper was doing.
That's a shame, here is a pic of my 2 bedroom deer blind with a 2 car garage attached. Deer feeder is about 100 yards from window.
The laws are much different there than here lol. I didn't have much luck myself this year. My house is surrounded by Woods on three sides but can't hunt from a dwelling. During the youth season a man had his two daughters hunting across from the house. They came out of the woods in the evening, climbed in there pick up and as soon as they got out of sight here comes a small herd of deer following them out of the woods. Gave me a chuckle and made me wonder how many times that's happened to me.
Just go to a decent tire shop that sells aftermarket rims. They should be able to tell you what you need. I wouldn't take the subject lightly. I had a neighbor who bought a new Jeep. He done the same thing. He use to work at the local Walmart as a "mechanic", ha. So he took it there to have his buddies put them on to save more money. After the 20 min. drive home he ruined two of the rims. He was really lucky he didn't loose them. The really sad part is he was mad because he thought they just didn't get the lugs tight. They used the factory lugs and the rims he had actually required a shouldered lug to ride on.
