Good to see the JGC keeping true to her off road roots, and showing those JK's we're still a force!
She did great on the trails. The torque of the diesel with that low range was awesome and kept us chugging along up anything we pointed it at.

Zero problems with DPF and regens. I was able to get the DEF shield from Dom in and installed a week before we left so it definitely gave me an extra piece of mind on the trails.

The limited slip works incredibly well. There were many times we had a tire in the air due to the limited suspension travel we had and I could feel it go to work and we crawled right up every time. My JK buddies in their Rubicon's were impressed watching it work.

It was an awesome trip. We took hundreds of incredible pictures. The views are unbelievable. I recommend everyone make a trip out there at least once. This was our second year going.

Re: "Willis" Our 2014 Limited Eco Diesel 4x4

Good to see a jeep with larger tires and coil suspension in action with just the level. Wish I was closer to there, about 30 hours for me. The tires look huge in this pic for some reason:

Looks great, do you have a programmer to change your Speedo/odo to adjust for the larger tires?

Thanks,

No I don't have a programmer. I am not aware of one available for it yet. I am keeping an eye out for one though.

At 70mph our speedometer was showing 68mph
