  1. Owners show off your new 4xe!

    Another Nacho, with Sunrider. Also replaced the dash top speakers w/Kickers for treble and hardwired a dashcam to the ignition-wire internal aux switch.
  2. 53.6 MPG in a Wrangler 4XE?!?!

    As much as they appear to be reviled by JL/JT people, the Prius and hybrid Corolla we own regularly get 55-60MPG on mostly highway driving, vs the 31/40 the gas version Corolla gets with each having tiny non-plug-in hybrid batteries. I'd expect the same thing in the 4xe -- ignoring the A-pillar...
  3. Desperate for mats and cargo liner...

    I got the standard red ones before I received my 4xe, so I found the front ones work fine and the rear seat mats don't. I guess you could cut down the rear ones (they're only rubber/plastic) but the nubs on the floor are too close together to work with the mats (regular JL rear mats' nubs are...
  4. What level 2 home charger are y'all installing for the 4Xe?

    I put an Enel-X Juicebox 40 in, and a 240V 50A garage circuit. Rebates from my electric company and Maryland ended up being more than the charger and install cost were, so no complaints there.
  5. 4xE Order Status??

    Still working on it. I installed the Carolina Metal Masters ball to the dash handle, and I put a Ram X-mount suction cup on the window for the driver's side. The charge display on the top of the dash takes most of the dash tray, so a 67 Design's bar wouldn't work.
  6. Tera Flex review of Jeep 4xe

    Seems like there's some missing bits there. My experience with multiple hybrids is that the electricity doesn't just run out, it's assisting from start to stop and the combination of both with brake regeneration leads to the higher MPGe. Over a tank of gas and with a full initial battery charge...
  7. 4xE Order Status??

    Got it last night -- 53 miles home from Tysons in VA. Sunrider, dashcam, EZ-Pass installed, phone mount installed... CMM O-S handle ball next. :)
  8. Will floor mats fit in back?

    This just bit me too -- ordered the regular Mopar mats and just tried to install the rear ones and discovered the mismatch. In looking at it, the 4xe specific mats have a shorter distance between the click-down nubs. Not sure I want to try returning them to Northridge4x4 -- when I called them...
  9. 4xE Order Status??

    Picking up my Nacho Rubi 4xe at Koons Tyson tomorrow. Had ordered 12/31 and I had set my expectations low, so wasn't disappointed it took awhile. Hope you all get yours soon. Now on to the mods.
  10. Another new 4xe walkaround/drive video

    I'm pretty sure they wanted the battery indicator to be visible inside and outside the vehicle so that might be why the placement. I suppose if its really annoying to an owner they could delete it. Same with the OffRoad+ button -- not sure it would have the same effect on an electric hybrid...
  11. 4xe mods -- what works/doesn't work from usual JL's?

    [Rebooting the thread now that we're getting our trucks delivered.] I was thinking about an ARB front bumper to mount a winch, but I'm worried about the weight. The GVWR is going to be a problem, I think. I'm looking at a GenRight aluminum stubby bumper now. I'm not a fan of full-width bumpers...
  12. Just saw my first Jeep 4xe

    If the battery completely fails after a while, isn't there still a 2L turbo engine under the hood somewhere? Seems like all the worry about when the battery quits seems misplaced.
  13. 4xE Order Status??

    I'm pretty sure "remote keyless entry" is standard, where the key fob has a button to unlock/lock the truck. "Remote proximity keyless entry" adds the unlock automatically if the keys in your pocket and you touch the door button.
  14. Hands on the Jeep Wrangler 4xe by TFL

    Didn't see any Off-Road+ button on that yellow Rubi. Also answered my question about whether the Rubicons would have the red dash. I'm pleased to see this one didn't. Also Tommy didn't know how to lift the back seat. All the comments so far are how either 1. it's stupid, or 2. The tech (and...
  15. 4xE Order Status??

    Seems like the folks who were required to get the body-colored top at the beginning but would have rather had the black hard top should make a plan to rendezvous with someone who got the black hard top when they would have rather had the body-colored top and $1K. Win-win. I wonder what a Nacho...
  16. 1000 mpg club

    Until I get my pandemic anti-virus shots my 4xe (whenever it arrives) will be parked in my garage accumulating mods and not driving an inch so the only electric juice it uses will be me cranking the tunes... Zero miles/zero KW's.
  17. 4xE Order Status??

    Yes, it scares other cars out of your way. EDIT: (to tone down the funny) It adds weight which slightly reduces your ability to avoid a collision, but if the collision-detect sensors aren't inhibited, no.
  18. Cracked one week in

    Windshield glass cracks are the Maori tribal tattoos of the Wrangler world.
  19. Is the 4XE font custom?

    Since PixelDecals is listening, I'd be interested in replacement personalization decals for the "RUBICON" on my vehicle order that has the same blue outline. I ordered Nacho so presuming I'd get blue outline, and transparent/black/white inside. Thanks.
  20. Future Battery Upgrade?

    I'm watching JK Gear & Gadgets on YT fit a 6.4 Hemi into a 2010 JK. And converting it to AT from MT. Seems to be working out OK. I supposed someone down the line could delete the 2.0T and convert the motor/transmission to full electric with enough motivation. Plenty of room for a new battery...
