The 20 seconds of spinning at the beginning of the video, I almost fell off my chair.
It's funny I didn't notice that at first. I was so in tune with looking at the 4xe and listening to the engine sound that the spinning didn't bother me. It was only after you pointed that out did I realize it was making me dizzy. Either way there's still 15 mins of video including driving that was exciting to watch

does the 4xe Rubicon not come with the Off-Road+ button?

Yeah that's strange. All the builds I made all had it there next to the red front/rear button. Guess this must be a base model.

Did I hear the engine come on when he accelerated hard when the electric only button was pressed?? Yeah, kind of a worthless test as the acceleration in Hybrid mode is something that would drive me to buy one.

Yeah I did hear that too. Only thing I can think of is he didn't hit the electric button hard enough and it stayed in hybrid mode. Earlier in the video he tried opening the gas tank lid and didn't press hard enough at first. That's the same row of buttons where the electric button is so if that was the case, then that makes sense and he was still in hybrid. Otherwise this is a major issue if the gas engine still goes on during electric only mode.

I almost think this is a prototype model because this one didn't have the off road+ button on it and from what I've seen, every build I've made from base to loaded always had it so it was strange not seeing off road+ on this one. That might explain why the engine came on during electric. Then again I'm doing mental gymnastics here trying to justify it.

If the system feels you want the torque (pressing down aggressively on the accelerator), I believe it does turn on the ice in all electric mode. Where that point in the system is we will find out once more are delivered.

@LJ_3M121318 I was thinking the same thing. even the 4Xe site shows it so I pulled out the Order guide to check.

per the order guide:
Off-road info Pages are standard for:
JLJX74 (392)
JLXP74 (4xe Sahara)
JLXS74 (4xe Rubicon)

Off-road info pages are Included when ordering following options:
AGS (Sun and Sound Package)
AEK (8.4" Radio and Premium Audio group)

Off-road Plus mode is only available for the following:
JLJS74 (Rubicon Unlimited)
JLJX74 (392)

with that it appears the Jeep site and images are incorrect, and the 4XE will NOT actually get the Off-road plus mode.

I have a Willys currently. Where is the off road + located on the Rubicon?
