Honestly this is a small thing, but as someone who has been on the fence for a while about the 4xe I am disappointed with where they placed the battery indicator. They chose to take up some of the only usable storage space on the dash, instead of placing those 5 led's somewhere else. Where else? How about integrating it into the rearview mirror or ANY other area on the dash not being used... or the front of one of the windshield pillars... Looks like I am waiting for the 4Xe v.2

@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 should know this but what does the Off Road + button do?

Changes the settings / Tune of the Transmission shift points, throttle mapping etc. I did not have it in my 18, 19, or 20 but I had the "sport" button in my Grand Cherokee Trailhawk and it is similar in concept. I really liked the way it worked in my Trailhawk and from what I heard people also really notice / like it in the JL and JT.

They may not think it is needed with the electric motor either working on its own or with the ice???

thank you. Noted on the shift points, but I wonder if it's not needed on the 4xe with the immediate response of the EV system?

But its not shown on the interior pic within the brochure.

I'm pretty sure they wanted the battery indicator to be visible inside and outside the vehicle so that might be why the placement. I suppose if its really annoying to an owner they could delete it.

Same with the OffRoad+ button -- not sure it would have the same effect on an electric hybrid transmission where the torque is immediately available.

Offroad+ has other functions not related to engine and trans. Like keeping the lockers locked at higher speeds and being able to engage the lockers in 4hi. I think it allows for swaybar disconnect in 4hi as well, but not sure about that.

I was under the impression Offroad+ was only beneficial in very specific circumstances, like driving 40mph over a dirt trail?

That's interesting and also makes sense.

So looks like the Jeep.com build site inaccurately shows the off road plus button but it seems like it's not included on the actual 4xe by design as it's relatively not applicable for a hybrid engine.
