I think this looks great now with brown leather. Got rid of red badges/decal. Added black trail badge. May paint the red tow hooks too. Buddy of mine did this that paints cars for a living.
I have about 1,000 miles on mine now averaging 18.5 mph. I feel like it drives really good. First 300-500 i feel like it was a little tame and now it is opening up some or maybe it is just me. Wish they would just do a 5.7 hemi option on these.A couple observations.
4.56 gears feels a bit buzzsaw like with the 35s. May be NECESSARY to add 38s to make it run smoother.
Steering is much more crisp than my 2019 & 2020 JLUR
The steering wheel is thinner than my 2019 & 2020 JLUR (I bought a 2021 RAM Friday and noticed this compared to my 2019 RAM as well)
I feel like they may have changed the seating a bit. Seats feel stiffer/awkward.
So far MPG is 15 which is odd considering my previous JLUR on 38 and 40s were getting 17+. However, the jeep is new and I have noticed MPG improves with time.
Any issues seeing 8th on the highway?As expected the 4.56 gearing isn’t perfect but totally acceptable. Unnoticeable under 65mph; it drives great. Over 65 wind resistance catches up with the gearing, and the transmission hunts a bit. No big deal for me, I’m totally stoked on the XR. I can’t wait to get this thing out on trail. I’ve got a feeling it’s going to make exciting trails boring. I absolutely love the look on 37s, I can’t believe how well it’s come together
