  1. Orders with half doors on delay

    Half doors are cool but I went with Mopar tube doors for those doors-off days as I wanted some degree of protection when driving on the street,. Even for you guys who are driving in the desert I would think your interior would be covered in dirt in no time, right? Anyway, my 4xe ordered Jan 4...
  2. Dealer Cussed me out over Survey!

    +1. This is unfortunately so true! I have to remind myself that the dealership experience is pegged at the $20-30k price point irrespective of my $65k 4xe. The opposite is true when you buy a $40k Mercedes and get treated like a $90-$120k customer. Of course, the annual oil service starts...
  3. Purpose of ordering the Steel Bumper Group?

    I also prefer the Mopar parts as these as these have been engineered to work with the vehicle and have a certain high standard to manufacture even if they are made overseas like most things are these days. If you buy your steel bumper group as part of your factory build then it is included in...
  4. MOPAR Wheel Lock for Spare

    Mopar wheel locks for Wrangler come with five locks -one for spare specifically.
  5. 4xe Check Engine Light Issue (CEL)

    If all tax credits apply only to new vehicle sale, in this scenario if you return your vehicle as a lemon, the market value may be minus credits. Hypothetical example: you buy 4xe for $60k, you get $10k tax credit, drive 500 miles and exercise your rights under your state lemon law. If your...
  6. Wrangler 4XE Drive Modes Analysis

    Disagree. In some circumstances you want to roll into the car in front of you so you have the benefit of four plus crumple zones absorbing energy instead of just two in the case someone runs into you going 40 mph at a red light. If you see it coming, you may want to release the brake to allow...
  7. Dealer Cussed me out over Survey!

    Anything beyond a perfect rating is like a fail for the dealership/individual and they miss out on financial incentives and bonuses for high marks. I always make it clear to individuals that I regularly work with (typically a service advisor) that I will give them top marks unless there is an...
  8. New 4xe complete electrical shutdown!

    Roadside assistance came out and gave me a jump start and the engine fired up! Starter battery read 2.8 v so continued to draw down overnight. Seems like hybrid drive and battery pack and motor plus vehicle electronics and starter battery are completely separate. A dead starter battery means...
  9. New 4xe complete electrical shutdown!

    Yes, knew there would be some new vehicle issues to be worked out, but I'm completely dead in the water at this point and will need a flatbed. Will update you guys once dealer figures things out.
  10. New 4xe complete electrical shutdown!

    So I just completed my first week of driving my JLU 4xe HA and the wife and I have been loving it. This afternoon, I tried starting it and it was completely dead electrically. Thought maybe one of my key fobs was bad, so got the second key fob and still absolutely no electric in the vehicle...
  11. Wrangler 4XE Drive Modes Analysis

    As for max regen behavior, it does not behave like other electric vehicles where it will come to a full stop with the foot off the gas. The 4xe will 'creep' forward like you would while idling with an ICE engine and automatic transmission (i.e. foot off of the brake - car moves forward slowly)...
  12. Wrangler 4XE Drive Modes Analysis

    No and it would be difficult to test as too many variables on any given drive. Brake regen has been around for quite some time so I am sure you could look up papers that point out the efficiencies and make your own mpg conclusion. One point about regen is that it significantly helps to slow...
  13. Wrangler 4XE Drive Modes Analysis

    Chris, great write-up. To add to your drive modes, if you move the gear selector into "manual shift" sport mode (sift gear selector to the left when in "D"), the engine will stay on even when stopped so manual mode appears to override the bias to just run off the electric motors. I ordered my...
  14. New 4xe details on Jeep site, and lease estimates

    Can you provide the link where you found this?
  15. Totaled Mercedes. What’s Next?

    Get a manual transmission JLU sahara - it will be an engaging, exciting driving experience for you without having to haul &ss around corners for fun.
  16. 4xe Active Noise Cancellation

    Active noise cancelling inside; active noise producing when in electric only mode (keeps people from being run over by a whisper-quiet electric car). Micky Bly teased on an interview with TFL guys that Jeep was looking at branding a unique sound for the 4xe. We'll see if this actually made...
  17. 4XE Edition JL Club Thread

    Rated same payload and tow as regular JLU.
