I was getting about 19 MPG with the 2.0 with mostly short trips.
I only have about 1,000 miles on it so far and haven't checked it yet with these tires.
For most of my highway driving I use my Honda Civic and primarily have the Jeep for snow.
Yeah, I am in Conneaut Lake here.
My MT's were ok in deeper snow, but on roads that were just getting covered they were pretty bad.
These XT's are very quiet compared to the MT's.
I sold all 5 of my MT's for $800 and paid about $1,400 for 5 XT's.
I did find that to get the white letter version...
I'm also in NW PA and I just bought a set for my Willy's.
The standard MT2's were too unpredictable in the snow, but I liked the looks of them so I went with the XT's.
They were EXCELLENT in the 6" - 8" of snow over Christmas and much more quiet on the highway. I never ran KO2's, but I'am very...
For anyone else considering these tires, they do go GREAT in the snow!
I really liked the look of the MT2's on my new Willys and also liked the white lettering.
To get the XT's with the white lettering and keep a close size to the 255/75/17R's I had to go with the 275/70/17R's.
We got 6" or so...
I have never put so much thought into first ordering a vehicle, and then buying tires.
I am hoping these XT's give me the look of the MT with good snow performance.
If not, time to shell out another $1,500. LOL
I have an all stock Willy's and looking to go to an all terrain tire.
I like the looks of the Firestone XT's, but to get the white lettering, I would have to go from the 255-75-R17 to a 275-70-R17.
Would there be any issues or difference with this size on my original wheels?
Looking to replace my Willys tires and like the look of the original Firestone's.
I would consider the XT's, but I don't see my size with the white letters.
Does anyone have a photo of their JL with Duratracs and the white letters on the outside?
After driving both 21's back to back, I had to go with the 2.0.
It just felt quicker and held speed on the highway better up the hills with the cruise on.
I definitely don't like the ESS though and always disable it when I start it.
The etorque does make the ESS really smooth.
So that night I ran a completely snow covered interstate for 40 miles and it seemed good.
Got to my girlfriends house and her driveway is on a small hill with about 4" of wet snow and it spun all 4 wheels getting up it.
Well, we had several inches of snow on my drive in this morning.
The highway hadn't been plowed yet.
Doing 60, 2WD was a little slick, wasn't enough for full time 4, so I used the auto mode with my selec trac. Felt great with that.
500 miles on dry road and they're ok.
I've never had mud tires, so they are a little noisy compared to AT's, but not bad.
We're supposed to be getting snow tomorrow, so we will maybe see how they do on road with snow.
I drove a 3.6 2020 non etorque Willys and a 2021 Willys 2.0 turbo (no etorque).
To me, the 2.0 was much more peppy and held it's speed better on the highway with the cruise on at 75MPH up hills.
I was leaning toward the 3.6 for reliability, but couldn't buy it after driving the 2.0.
And, with a...
