4xe Rubicon
I was a lonely Hydro Pearl Rubicon 4xe charging at a back parking space at Irvine Spectrum (07/21/21). My temp plate said GA, but I was on a road trip from the Bay Area. When I returned, I found a beautiful white Rubicon 4xe charging next to me (Ontario, CA insignia) and an adorable duck on my mirror. You made my day, and I felt like a kid on Christmas. I had no idea that a rubber duck could bring me so much joy! I did not have any with me, but I wished I could have ducked you back! Thank you for making my day; I truly appreciate it!

I don't get the "Ducking" thing..... Can somebody please explain what this is all about?
Not everyone subscribes to it but for those who do it works like this: whenever you see another Jeep and have a duck you place it on that Jeep for them to find. And you’ll often find them on yours. I’ve seen some pretty large collections of ducks from people who have played for long. I’m into it but I know some don’t really like it.

My Tank has been ducked a couple of times. I appreciate it, although I don’t express that appreciation because I don’t do Facebook. Maybe one day I’ll start giving a duck.

I've been ducked a lot less lately. I think people are more mad about everything the past few years.

Just wondering what kind of mileage your getting on your 4xe. Every time I ask this question, people respond with the using it in all electric mode scenario. I know its not a Tesla. What kind of mixed gasoline & electric (hybrid) miles does your Jeep indicate.

That's because Jeep doesn't make it obvious for its users to answer that question - lol. I think a full tank of gas and battery, is 270 miles-ish. The technology isn't the best as in the hybrid mode the Jeep still mainly uses the battery and will be depleted at the beginning of a road trip unless the e-save feature is used. Quite honestly, just work with the idea of getting 20-30 miles out of the battery between full charges, no matter if you use it in full electric or hybrid mode. The MPGe will vary for every individual due to how the technology is currently set up. The MPG is about 19-21.

I got ducked last week - only had 600 miles on the Jeep at the time. My wife and daughter were with me, and were thrilled by the unicorn duck we got. It's got a permanent home on the dash now.

I noticed my wife searching for ducks on Amazon afterward as well...
