Hey everybody,

I just picked up my 392 and wanted to make myself available if anybody wants any questions answered. I have backgrounds in mechanical and audio. I'm not quite yet at 200 miles and I plan on properly breaking the 392 in, so no track times or performance date yet.

Here's a few things to get us started. The power delivery is a riot, on the jeep suspension it flexes hard at any amount of decent throttle. The ride is softer and more forgiving on the road than my JT or my JK, by far. It is incredible smooth. The seat bolsters are indistinguishable from my JT rubi, in terms of comfort or feel. The paddle shifters are basically novelty only, shift times are in excess of 1 full second. They remind me of the shifters in a CVT civic. They do not allow gear jumps either, i.e. 8th to 6th. It cycles through each gear slowly. That said, I am not going over 4500rpm or half throttle right now, so maybe they come alive under higher pressure.

The exhaust button is awesome and it remembers your last setting. Want to quiet down before coming in to the neighborhood? Your 392 remembers that in the morning. However, as others have stated, cold start is always loud for atleast 3 seconds. The initial rap of it starting is quite satisfying. The idle on this car is also very satisfying. The rhythmic rubrubrubrub is reminiscent of some deliberate cam lope or idle overlap, but not quite. In quiet mode the exhaust is remarkably quiet. Under 2k rpm it is as loud as my JT was. In quiet mode the exhaust will open automatically if you give it some gas.

No auto start auto stop. Backup camera is dog. This is my first sky one touch and it is great. Far quieter than I though and completely acceptable K02 noise levels. Runs about 2db higher than my hardtop JT. Full sound deadening, spray in and mat coming soon if anybody is interested.

That's all for now but if you guys want measurements or pictures or whatever, just ask. Have a good rest of the weekend!

Congrats and great write up. Too bad about the paddle shifters. Looks like the Ram TRX was better implemented from reviews I’ve read so far.

Does the front axle have the Front Axle Disconnect delete on passenger side or is it solid from dif to knuckle?

Great looking color and awesome 392. I've looking at the 392 for about a month now. Scary sticker price and so far nothing but crickets on asking for a discount. What I'd like to know is what kind of fuel mileage you'll get just driving around as a daily driver if possible. I realize they are not mileage champs regardless of what powers them. But I would like to know what you get. Regardless of how it is driven.

How’s the dash? Still on the fence if I’ll change it up. It looks glossy from promotional photos.

Looks incredible! Are those the stock 285 tires or are those 315s?

Yeah discounts are tough. I paid 2k over, down from 5. When I picked the car up it had 10.8 mpg on 42 miles and I am now 12.3 on 234 miles. I expect 14 or so is reasonable for combined.

It is glossy, I prefer both my red and grey dash from the JT. The 392 dash is high gloss black with fine to medium pearl flake. Not really my thing but I'm over it, don't notice it anymore.

I heard that premium fuel is REQUIRED not just RECOMMEND. My Mojave runs about 16-17mpg. So I've been keeping track of fuel the past 4 weeks to get an idea what it cost as a daily driver. Thanks for the info.
