  1. Advice: Winter/Highway Tire & Wheel Setup

    I had Nokian LT3s, studded on my 19 Rubi, and wasn't impressed. This is after running Blizzaks on an 06 Highlander Hybrid that was a tank in snow. For my 21 Rubi I'm going to downsize the tire, go with a 235/80/17 LT3 to see if it'll finally have a proper bite in snow.
  2. JL Window Sticker and Build Sheet Order Tracking

    The window sticker posts after the vehicle is actually built, you can put your order into CryptoStickers to have it poll for it nightly, or just put your VIN at the end of https://www.chrysler.com/hostd/windowsticker/getWindowStickerPdf.do?vin= and open that link in your browser to check for...
  3. JL Window Sticker and Build Sheet Order Tracking

    To close the loop on mine: 8/6 - 4XE order in, VON that day 8/10 - VIN from Jeep Cares and my Dealer 8/20 - Jeep Cares says 'all parts gathered' 9/3 - Build sheet popped up 9/7 - Jeep Cares says built, 'awaiting release for shipping'. Dealer says shipped to storage on 9/3, no ETA yet. 9/11 -...
  4. Looking for non-invasive Wrangler 4xe mods - Exterior

    Your jeep already comes with a tow hitch cover.
  5. Acceleration Test: Wrangler 392 Xtreme Recon Package Hits 4.0s 0-60 / 12.9s Quarter Mile [Car and Driver Review] + Sound Clips

    I'll have mine to play with tonight, the one I test drove before was very obviously working hard to make sure you never did break traction. I didn't throw it into 4A with all the nannies turned off, but it clearly hauled harder than my 2019 2.0T.
  6. Acceleration Test: Wrangler 392 Xtreme Recon Package Hits 4.0s 0-60 / 12.9s Quarter Mile [Car and Driver Review] + Sound Clips

    Here's a horrible direct comparison. 4XE is tan and white, 392 is blue and dark grey: The two are pretty close till about 4k RPM at which point the 4XE flattens out while the 392 just keeps on building power with about 500 RPM more overrev compared to the hybrid. With an 8 speed gearbox...
  7. Prospective buyer asking: Anyone with more than 5K miles and no problems?

    Also bear in mind, class actions are filed all the time, the vast VAST majority of them never actually get certified as class actions and peter out.
  8. Would you order a new Jeep Now?

    Tesla is a special kind of dumb when it comes to crap they pull with their production. I wouldn't use them as an example of what any other mfg might do.
  9. Rubicon 4x4 & lockers: how do they work?

    Yup, my mistake there.
  10. Rubicon 4x4 & lockers: how do they work?

    The Rubicon 'rock trac' is just like a regular Wrangler transfer case, no center diff, no clutch packs, but 4L is 4:1 reduction instead of 2:1.
  11. Just don't buy the 4xe! Please don't!

    Same impact, paid for a vehicle that's out of service for an extended period. The cause is out of the owner's control, and the vendor is unable to correct in a timely manor. AFAIK the lemon law typically doesn't have an exception for 'parts are backordered'?
  12. JL Window Sticker and Build Sheet Order Tracking

    Hard to be patient when Jeep has waived the acquisition fee on my particular build for this month... I don't want to miss that just 'cause of shipping delays.
  13. Auto Start/Stop re-starts during stop

    That was my only complaint with ESS, leave the engine off in Park dangit!
  14. How does the WiFi work on the JL?

    It's specifically listed at s a '4G LTE Hotspot' so possibly a separate data connection.
  15. 4xe - $12,500 proposed tax credit stopped my purchase

    Tesla hasn't been eligible for a couple years now.
  16. 4xe - $12,500 proposed tax credit stopped my purchase

    There is a price cap on the proposed rebate, cars cap out at $55k, trucks cap out at $74k. There is also an income test too, $400k max that doesn't exist for the current program. The Senate voted on a amendment last month that is tougher, $100k income limit, hard $40k cap on the vehicle cost...
  17. How does the WiFi work on the JL?

    AT&T offered me unlimited data for $15/mo after the trial in 2019. It was nice on long trips to use Pandora/etc and not think about it.
  18. How does the WiFi work on the JL?

    Basically, yeah, it's a hotspot locked to AT&T.
  19. JL Window Sticker and Build Sheet Order Tracking

    My window sticker went live Saturday, JC would only confirm it's built. No estimated date range or any other info... I don't pretend to be patient very well dang it!
