  1. Road Trip while towing with the Jeep 4xe!

    The comparison here is between charging the battery using esave while driving vs charging the battery to run the air conditioner while the car is parked to keep it cool inside. I think esave would be more efficient because you can use regen to help charge the battery while driving.
  2. Road Trip while towing with the Jeep 4xe!

    Curious as to why you were running in esave mode. I have never tried it but I think you would still have air conditioning during remote start when the battery is <1%. It would start the ICE, I would think.
  3. Jeeps parking next to Jeeps... post yours!

    Saw this beauty parked all by itself and just had to stop, check it out and give it some company. It was beautifully restored and looked new.
  4. How is MPG figured for 4xe

    Yes. I think you are right. It’s is calculating mpge when running full electric . The way you can tell is when you stop moving, there is still some electric energy being used and your mpg(e) starts to drop.
  5. 53.6 MPG in a Wrangler 4XE?!?!

    Tesla at one point had a prototype for that. The car would drive over a sunken bay and the olds battery would be remove and and new one inserted underneath the car.
  6. Hitch Bike Rack recommendations?

    I’m looking to get the 1up rack attach since I have a rubicon and it looks like it does clear the spare. Just wondering why you ordered the large vs medium? Thanks for the photos and info.
  7. 4xe recall?

    Yep. Your exactly right. It has nothing to do with the 4xe. I should have read it more carefully.
  8. 4xE Order Status??

    Jeff is a very busy guy these days. I think he works 24-7. He‘s a beast. 🤥
  9. 4xE Order Status??

    Some progress with my 4xe Rubicon order placed on nov 13. Jeff from Jeep Support gave an ETA of May 11-25. My dealer reported the vehicle was in Washington State. Next stop should be Spokane and then on to Kellog Idaho to the dealer. It’s getting close.
  10. $2000 Price Increase For 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe

    I can’t argue with a sticker. I guess the base price is 53505. in any event , the 4xe is still $3520 lower than a gas model with the tax credit.
  11. $2000 Price Increase For 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe

    Not according to the Jeep web site. On the web site a 4xe Rubicon with white paint(no paint surcharge) is $53190. Is your figure from a dealer?
  12. $2000 Price Increase For 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe

    I think your numbers are not correct. The base price for the 4xe of $53190 is after the price increase. My sticker for the 4xe rubicon on the order I placed in Nov shows the original base msrp of $51695. The base price for a gas only rubicon from the Jeep web site is $43970 not $42475 . The...

  17. 53.6 MPG in a Wrangler 4XE?!?!

    Yes. That’s exactly right.
  18. 53.6 MPG in a Wrangler 4XE?!?!

    Yes. I agree that would be useful to know. Its easy to find out. Drive until the battery is <1%. Don't charge it back up. Drive some combination of city and highway. Record how many miles you drove and how much gasoline you used and compute your MPG. Try with max regen on and off. As soon as...
  19. 53.6 MPG in a Wrangler 4XE?!?!

    MPGe is essentially a measure of the efficiency of the electric drive train on a vehicle. They could easily of just called it MPKw-hr. It's only useful to compare with other vehicles with electric drive trains. Besides that it, is essentially meaningless. There are two potential benefits of...
