My wife's 14 ecodiesel

Just got back from Colorado in my wife's ecodiesel. Did a flurry of work on it before hitting the trails includin OME 2" suspension, added all factory skids, bushwacker flares, Mopar rock rails (dealer installed - kinda), 255/75/20 BFG's, and GDE hot tune.

Pretty happy with everything so far except the rock rails. Dealer had it two days trying to get them on and couldnt complete it but said they were on solid enough to go anyway and finish when we got back. The dealer had two techs working almost 15 hours and were ready to give up. They told me they are the poorest quality product they had ever seen and would not sell nor install them again.

Everything else, great. Averaged 28.2 mpg for the trip, and over 32 in the mountains. Jeep did everything I'd normally do in Ouray in my JKU, but it was a much bumpier ride. Having only 3-4" of travel (or whatever it has) it does not soak up the big rocks the way my JK does. It was definitely a different experience since we were completely solo, which wouldnt have bothered me as much in the JKU.

That's nice. Do those wheels rub? I have the exact same ecodiesel. Love mine.

Great pic. I like the flares too. Bushwacker?
