Looks great! Im planning on adding 35s to my Sahara 4xe. The Mopar lift is backordered through mid-July. Clearance looks fine with the 35s, but do they rub when turning?
No rubbing when turning, also still plenty of clearance around the fenders for normal driving thanks to the extra 1" height from the factory.

My 4xe on the lot and with new wheels. Only thing I’ve changed so far with more mods on my to do list.

Looks great, details on wheels and tires? No lift, no rubbing?

Thanks! 33” and no lift (still debating only because I’m short and it’s already a climb LOL), no rubbing. Wanting to replace that huge antenna with a short black one and paint the grill inserts black next.

I LOVE THIS THING! My first Wrangler since I bought my first Wrangler in 1998, a 2.0L, 2-door sport. Had that for Two years. I'm thinking I'll be driving this for a looong time.

I was so close to ordering one EXACTLY how I wanted it but then this one popped up "in transit" at a dealer almost 300mi away, perfect.

Only things I'd add are the steel bumpers, they look so good (take offs anyone?). MAYBE the painted fenders, the trail rail system would be nice too. Otherwise it's pretty damn well loaded up! AND I even got a bit of a discount off MSRP.


On the Test Drive... only 15mi

Test Drive... Only 15 miles on the OD!

First scenic drive

First Drive of ownership... Lake Coeur d'Alene.

Back home in Seattle.

First Charge at home.


20210530_121011.jpg



First 1,000 mi.  (took 1 week!)

I can't believe I've driven this far (1200 mi) in 6 days! Life has its circumstances apparently.
Back to reality will have me driving about 50-75 mi a week!

Good to hear! Thanks for the reply. Mine is a Sahara, so I wont have that extra 1" lift from the factory. I wanted a Rubicon, but couldnt justify the extra $5k for features Im rarely going to use--at least for 3-4 years while my kids are still in carseats.

Actually, all of the 4xe models have 1” extra from the factory over their non-hybrid counterparts, so you should have no issues with 35’s!

I had not seen that anywhere. 4xe’s have additional 1” like the rubicon?

Here‘s a thread talking about it. To the best of my understanding, all of the 4xe models have an extra inch. There’s also some threads floating around about what this means as far as lifts if you wanna do a spacer lift (i.e. even a 1.5” lift may require control arms and shock extensions).

Hello group. Just picked up my 4xe and been enjoying the ride so far. Excited to begin anew and see where this build takes me.

Small easy personal touches to start off with. Over rock rail sliders on order for the next planned addition.

Which grab handles did you go with? I was going to go with all black but I like the look of those.
