  1. Just don't buy the 4xe! Please don't!

    You still haven't explained why you spent a ton of money on rental cars. If the Jeep is not a daily driver, then why do you need a rental car. Just drive your daily driver.
  2. Using true hybrid mode to maximize MPG of Jeep 4xe

    How much less gas did you use vs making that drive in Hybrid?
  3. Using true hybrid mode to maximize MPG of Jeep 4xe

    That is kind of the point of my question. I don't think there is any actual data on this thread that shows that the M8 method gets better MPG than using the factory-provided Hybrid method. OPs photos only show that the M8 method will cause the trip meter to pretend all 80 miles were on gas...
  4. Using true hybrid mode to maximize MPG of Jeep 4xe

    I am curious why this matters. Do you have some hard data (not trip displayed mpge) showing that you use the same amount of gas while using more battery up in Hybrid mode as compared to the M8 hack?
  5. Selling my 4xe

    it is amazing how many people in this country have no idea how taxes work.
  6. Selling my 4xe

    Your reimagination of the tax law is interesting, but also irrelevant, as the tax law is already set. He can sell and still get the rebate, as he didn’t buy it with the intent of reselling. The evidence is that when selling, he will lose his shirt. It obviously isn’t a profit making...
  7. Selling my 4xe

    I’m really interested in what you are going to replace it with that will let you pay it off in three years while also making up all the taxes and fees you paid for the 4xe 10 weeks ago. Also interested in how this new three year plan has changed your plans from 10 weeks ago when you bought it...
  8. Cent's 4xe Improvement Suggestions

    It resets after 99 hours of drive time.
  9. Random Alert Chimes While Driving

    I get the random single beep soon after starting to drive somewhere with no error message a couple times a week. Have no idea what is causing it.
  10. Jeep Wrangler 4xe 70-MPH Electric-Only Range Test

    Seems like the kind of test that Chris Hall would be good at. I'm interested to see the results, as I don't really trust any of the dash displayed figures regarding electric vs. gas usage. It seems like they all have quirks to them. It seems like driving 25ish miles with no gas usage at the...
  11. Jeep Wrangler 4xe 70-MPH Electric-Only Range Test

    It sounds like you have a hypothesis, but have not done the testing to prove/disprove. I think someone said earlier that a true test would be to fill up and charge up, then highway drive in Hybrid until you run out of gas and electric. Then fill up and charge up again and drive a similar course...
  12. Wheels click on sharp/slow turns

    Is this going to cause any damage if I just ignore it? I only get the clicks when turning tight to park. It is annoying, but only for a few seconds, versus hours or days at the dealer to fix.
  13. Actual highway MPG range for 4xe?

    At first I was showing around 270 as total range when full, but after a couple thousand miles it started showing 350-370. I’ve got around 500 miles on battery and 4,000 on gas from a few long trips.
  14. 4xe engine miles v electric miles

    I'm not certain, but I'm pretty sure the trip data resets after 99 hours of driving. I know I was pretty close to that last week and then out of nowhere it zeroed out.
  15. Using true hybrid mode to maximize MPG of Jeep 4xe

    While it is true that the Jeep tries to use up visible battery first with no gas used unless you floor it, it is still continuously switching from gas to battery to gas & battery even after it hits <1% battery. This is in Hybrid mode with Max Regen OFF, running 2H and mostly using adaptive...
  16. My 2019 JL Wrangler to 2021 4xe Rubicon Upgrade Experience

    I did something very similar to you and am seeing similar results. I went from a 2019 JLUR to a 2021 Rubicon 4xe. They are almost the exact same builds, with the only options differing being the 2019 had a soft top and the 4xe has Sky One Touch top. And I added the front camera that wasn't...
  17. 4xe purchase and 1150 mile drive home

    If you weren't trolling then you probably wouldn't mispell 4xe every time you type it. Once is a mistake, but four times has to be with purpose.
  18. E-Save with Battery Charge Results on Highway

    I went from 1-30% in about 2 hours of fairly flat highway driving with adaptive cruise set between 60-65. Driving back that same day I got to 65%.
  19. Public Charging?

    My nearest Whole Foods has two chargers, though you have to have the Blink app and pay a little bit. My Safeway has two chargers that are free (and like 10 Tesla chargers). Both are problematic because I’m not spending enough time at the grocery store to get much charge. I found a parking...
  20. 4XE - Worse mileage than other motors (after battery depleted)?

    Do you feel like the 2 hours on eSave with battery charge cost you any MPG on that part of the drive? If so, how much? I have also gotten about 25-30% battery charge on two seperate 2 hour highway drives, but did not keep track of exact gas usage. I assume it costs at least a few MPGs to run...
