  1. $2000 Price Increase For 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe

    Although, Jeep has increased pricing mid-model year in the past, so this wouldn’t be unprecedented. The Build & Price website is notoriously slow to get changes in price/colors/options, etc. I definitely would NOT be looking at the web configurator for guidance on pricing.
  2. $2000 Price Increase For 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe

    My dealer told me a week ago that my order placed on 4/2 would be shipped on 5/2. Jeep chat told me it was en route well before 5/2. I checked again with Jeep chat a few minutes ago, and they said the Jeep is already at the dealer. I just texted salesperson, and he confirmed it is there, and...
  3. $2000 Price Increase For 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe

    I’m confused...so is the dealer misinformed, and the supposed “price increase” is just a glitch? Or, was the $25K amount just a glitch, and there will still be a price increase of a different dollar amount hitting on Tuesday?
  4. 4xe Tax Credit explained and hints by someone who has done it twice.

    First, my disclaimer: I’ve never done this myself, or assisted a client with the sale of an EV. However, the language in the code sure seems to indicate that there is no recapture of the tax credit upon a typical resale event (as long as it doesn’t break one of the rules above). Please confirm...
  5. Black Jeep Wrangler JL Wrapped in XPEL Stealth Protection Film

    The OP in this thread was asked that question, and he stated that he just put the Xpel film right over his Rubicon decal, and he included this picture: No visible bubbles. Although others might be able to chime in as to how they’ve handled the decal when doing film.
  6. 4xe Tax Credit explained and hints by someone who has done it twice.

    For those concerned about FCA hitting the 200,000 EV vehicle threshold, and having their tax credit reduced, here’s a chart (although it’s a bit stale with data only through June of 2020) showing EV sales by manufacturer in US...
  7. 4xe Tax Credit explained and hints by someone who has done it twice.

    Good question. The author is trying to make the point that 2021 will result in a lower average tax rate for a lot of taxpayers. This is true. The part of the article that is a bit misleading is that they use “average” for tax rates instead of using “median”. To give you an example, imagine a...
  8. Dead pedal does not work with the 4xe

    Ahh. Got it. Thanks for posting - I’m thinking you’re probably right that it should work. And I hear a lot of people really like the MORE dead pedal. Hopefully a 4xe owner can confirm for certain!
  9. Dead pedal does not work with the 4xe

    I think the OP was referring to a change in the 4xe model. Can you confirm, is yours a 4xe hybrid? Your signature shows you have a diesel. Just wanted to confirm.
  10. 4xe Tax Credit explained and hints by someone who has done it twice.

    @Ratiogear, I wrote a detailed post about the EV Tax Credit phase out here: https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/my-first-reactions-from-4xe-wrangler-test-drive.60027/post-1425344 I also included some examples that might help explain how it works. There should be no surprises on the...
  11. 4xe Tax Credit explained and hints by someone who has done it twice.

    What you’re describing is an electric vehicle tax credit “recapture”, and it is described in section 130-1 of the tax code, found here: https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/26/1.30-1 It’s often misunderstood to mean that if you sell within 3-years, you have to give back a portion, or all, of...
  12. 4xe J1772 adaptor at campsite

    No worries. A lot of us here are naive at the beginning. Exhibit A: My wife and I were hitting campsites with the Jeep a couple years ago, and had to use our first RV park one night. That’s the night I learned what a NEMA 14-50 plug was - and that none of the sites had standard 120v outlets...
  13. 4xe J1772 adaptor at campsite

    There are plenty of 14-50 to standard 120v household outlet adapters all over the web and Amazon for $20 to $40. Example here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08NXHHCKG/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=A19Z8GGYLX34ED&psc=1 For $40, that would get you your level 1 charging (12+ hours to full...
  14. 4xE Order Status??

    My dealer quoted me the same 4 - 6 week estimate. Ordered on 4/2 Build Sheet on 4/15 Monroney Sticker on 4/17 Estimated delivery (as per Jeep Chat tonight) 4/29 - 5/13 East coast dealer in MA So, if that holds true (who knows if it will), that would place delivery between 4 and 6 weeks. Time...
  15. Sahara 4xe and 33'.

    I swapped out my 2018 Sahara wheels & tires for 33” Rubicon wheels/tires shortly after I bought it. No issues at all, and looks great! Jeep has no lift kit. Although, I did install Air Lift bags in the rear springs to help with camping trips like this one. There is roughly 900 pounds of...
  16. What were they thinking?

    Yeah, but then I couldn’t do my Dukes of Hazzard impression with the rear wheels spinning in the dirt while they gain traction and eventually launch me forward.😜 This is awesome! Thanks. Just changed it. Not sure if that was an option in 2018 when I bought it. I asked the dealership, and they...
  17. What were they thinking?

    Minor pet peeve...but a safety issue that could easily be corrected with a software update: When shifting out of reverse, the back-up camera shuts off immediately. On my 2018 Audi Q5, the camera remains on for several seconds AFTER you shift out of reverse - brilliant. In the Audi, it’s not...
  18. 4XE Rear Seat Legroom

    I hear ya. And you’re right, I’m not sure if the fridge from our 2018 JLU Sahara is going to fit in the 4xe either (at least not lengthwise like that!). I’ll confirm once I take delivery of our 4xe, hopefully in early May. How about adding some roof rack bars to a 4xe to hold a lightweight...
