Hi fellow jeepers, this is my first thread here and I promise to do my best at keeping it short, but also sharing our trip as much as the WiFi permits!

That sounds like a great trip! I have been waiting for the windshield to go.. so much gravel has been dropped in these snowy states, but I am doing the best I can to keep my distance. I couldn't agree more, the JL is so smooth on the highway, its awesome! I have tested out 4L and it is definitely sticky, I also forgot how much you somewhat have to throw it in there hahagreat trip! I also picked up a JLWU Sahara and drove from Miami, through Macon, St. Louis, Colby, KS to Fairplay, CO. After 2 weeks, we moved to Breckinridge until yesterday. We drove to Santa Fe- tomorrow to Dallas, then New Orleans then back home.
Only casualty was a cracked windshield replaced,( and pitted yesterday by an errant driver) , otherwise I absolutely love driving this thing. The 4WD Lo sticks when cold, and it has been cold for weeks!
Have a great time, and enjoy the company along with the vistas.
ps Wear a mask!
Sounds like a pretty awesome and well mapped out adventure! Ive always wanted to do a cross country trek, so I'll look forward to following along.
Once you arrive back in WC, I'll be certain to wave if I spot your Sting Gray JL. I am only a few miles to the south of you in Danville. If you are from the area, you might recognize Mt Diablo below... No off road Jeep trails... but a great place for my kids to toss rocks off the switchbacks~
Nice, we will have to get together and get the tires dirty!
This is something I was super worried about, but I am pleasantly surprised thus far. Temp has been in the teens, winds over 30 mph in badlands and a solid 75mph cruise for hours on end and it is doing great. We haven't run into too much heavy rain yet (thank goodness) but no leaks from the rain that we have had. Overall this Jeep is still fairly quiet in my mind. I haven't been in a freedom top JL on the freeway yet, so I cant really draw a comparison, but I am very happy with how the one touch is doing.Thank you for sharing the great trip. How is that one touch top holding up? Leaks, wind noise...?
Keep me posted so we can do some wheeling and boozing! Also stay about 200 miles away from Houston. Way better places to spend your time than there.mannn we almost did. I have a good amount of people I work with that live in the Houston area, but it just didn't add up for the time frame that we wanted to run. We will come down there soon though!
