Yep, I too took advantage of the virus situation to go off roading more, though I kept working my regular hours at the office. Just fewer folks on the trails because they misinterpreted our Governor's orders. Love driving the Jeep, way better than my old Honda ElementPlus, with not much to do with the virus stuff I just drove around exploring Phoenix area...off roading etc. I just love driving my Jeep so there’s that too. Haha
Sounds like y’all get out pretty often that’s great! Even better your daughter just chills. Where do y’all live to have to drive 2hrs to get to mountains?
That’s awesome! Definitely a great time to go off roading. Yes, driving a Jeep is so much better!! Glad for the upgrade I’m sure!Yep, I too took advantage of the virus situation to go off roading more, though I kept working my regular hours at the office.

Yes we try to get out often. Went just about every week in April and May, slowed down a bit in June, and July we've gone a couple times. We go to the Daniel Boone National Forest. There is a system of trails there called the Daniel Boone Backcountry Byway and the Kentucky Adventure Tour. These are county roads from the old coal-mining days. They are in terrible repair for the most part, with being a creek to drive through or a boulder to crawl over here and there. Mostly it is dirt/mud/ruts going up and down the mountains connecting towns where there is maybe one traffic light and a gas station. Exagerating a bit on their size, but not my much
We live in Louisville, KY, about 2hr, 100mi from the area. Nowhere else in the state to wheel, very little public land that had trails/roads like that.
The ZF 8 speed isn't a new transmission, they last a long time and work great. They're solid. Just don't believe the lies from Chrysler that it never has to be serviced.Well my 2020 JLUR is just starting it’s life so not many miles yet. But if my history with the 3.6 holds (2013 JKU auto with 175,000 miles & 0 issues), I suspect it will, then I should be happy. The real question is how will the 8 speed auto transmission hold up compared to the last generation auto transmission in the JKs. That’s a topic for another thread and only time will tell.
