  1. Desperate for mats and cargo liner...

    Cargo liners for the 4xe are still hard to get. I ordered the Jeep brand liner from BAM and here it is, installed. The rear portion sits inside the tie downs. The seatback protectors require cutting 10 one inch holes in the carpet. I thought hard about that before proceeding, but the included...
  2. Innovative Jeep Wrangler 4xe Named to Wards 10 Best Engines and Propulsion Systems

    I’m 5 months in, almost all electric then a 2000 mile roadtrip. I love this thing. I had two 6 cyl Wranglers before this and the 4xe is better in every way so far. All electric for my daily driving then superior power when out on the hiway. I got about 19mpg on the trip—loaded up, mostly 75mph...
  3. 4XE for short trips?

    I just finished a 2000 mile road trip where I was only able to plug in the first night out. I never felt like the electric boost wasn’t there for passing, hill climbing, or pulling away from a stoplight. The engine will run almost all the time. So, your wife’s desire for power will be met to the...
  4. Owners show off your new 4xe!

    Got my 4xe out to Moki Dugway and Valley of the Gods

    It’s not on the chart yet, but the stock shocks I removed matched the length of the regular Rubicon listed here. I’m not sure if the 4xe uses the same exact shock as a standard Rubicon. Because of the extra weight, it would not surprise me if the valving is modified.

    They were almost an inch shorter than the stock shocks. I did not want to lose any suspension travel. I also found the adjustment knob to be imprecise and difficult to set. I found this shock chart elsewhere on the forum. Very helpful (see the original thread for a link to the google doc...

    After not liking the way Rancho’s RS9000 shocks fit on my stock height 4xe Rubicon, I was going to wait until manufacturer recommendations came down, but I was never good at patience. Last weekend I installed Fox 2.5 reservoir shocks all around and added the Fox ATS steering stabilizer while I...
  8. After Market Exhaust on 4xe

    If it puts a smile on your face, then what’s not to like? I put a Borla on my (previous) 6 cyl JL and I think yours sounds better.
  9. JLUR 4xe Car & Driver July ‘21

    You have to remember that Car and Driver has a particular point of view. I don’t think a Wrangler has ever been on their 10 Best list. They put the Gladiator on it for one year, then dropped it. They’re never going to love a solid axle vehicle. It does not have the attributes they are looking...
  10. JLUR 4xe Car & Driver July ‘21

    My last attempt to post this was deleted as a repost, but I don’t see it. Apologies if this is elsewhere. Car and Driver really didn’t like the hybrid integration, but they did note that the 4xe is 1.3 seconds quicker to 60mph in 4-auto because torque is throttled back in 2wd. I will be running...
  11. Jeep 4XE Compatible Parts & Accessories

    I wanted to swap out the stock shocks so I ordered some Rancho RS9000‘s all around. Unfortunately, the rear shocks are 1.5” shorter than the stock Mopars. I’m guessing the shocks on the 4xe are not the same as other Rubicons. This makes sense given the reports that the 4xe sits 1” higher. I did...
  12. 4xE Order Status??

    OMG! You and I ordered on the same day. I’ve had mine for two months. I’m not sure I could have stayed sane. I’m very happy you finally got yours. I hope you love it.
  13. Using true hybrid mode to maximize MPG of Jeep 4xe

    Maybe this could be true, but I think it’s more likely an anomaly in the trip computer. In both cases your battery is completely drained, but in the M8 case gasoline gets credit for all 82 miles (battery gets zero). Even if the 4xe engine never stops running in M8 mode (?), the battery still...
  14. Tesla adapter to J1772 would work on the 4XE?

    Also not an electrician, but I don’t think this is correct. If your charger has a NEMA 14-50 plug, then yes, you need 4 wires: hot, hot, neutral, ground. If you have a 6-50 plug, then only 3 wires are used: hot, hot, ground. Any electricians among us, please jump in.
  15. First Time Jeep Owner Experience

    The only difference is the shape of the plastic retainer around the camera. The JT version snaps right in to the 4xe grill. The JL version is made for the smaller honeycomb design of the regular JL. I don’t think it could ever be made to look right in the 4xe grill. If you want JT Cam specific...

    Here’s the JT cam installed on my Rubi.
  17. First Time Jeep Owner Experience

    You can get an aftermarket front camera from Z Automotive. They are out of stock on their website but in stock at Quadratec. Don’t order the JL version—order the JT. It fits perfectly and looks stock. You will have to order the Tazer JL Mini programmer with it to enable the second camera input...

    Tazer JL Mini: Z-TZR-JLM JL front camera: Z-JL-CAM JT front camera: Z-JT-CAM
  19. Jeep 4XE Compatible Parts & Accessories

    Z Automotive’s Tazer Mini works fine. A couple of functions are not available because of the nature of the drivetrain and braking system (no easy burnouts with the front brakes locked). Z Automotive’s JL front camera DOES NOT fit—but the JT version does. 4xe’s have the same grill as a Gladiator.
  20. Tazer front camera installation

    Another tidbit: the honeycomb plastic behind the grill on the 4xe (and the 392) is not the same as regular (and diesel) Wranglers. It’s a larger pattern that looks the same as the Gladiator’s. I have ordered a JT version of the camera because the JL version does not fit. Here’s a diesel grill...
