Re: 2014 GC "EcoDiesel" OWNERS!!! Review..

A week after picking up my SFU I decide to take it to some its native habitat. So far I am impressed with its capabilities, the smoothest and quitest OHV I have ridden in so far.

I agree… I think my Jeep is smarter than me sometimes!

Nice pictures. Just washed, clay bared, and sealed mine yesterday. Gonna cry on the next snowfall - for about two minutes, then I will be out having fun tooling around in the snow.

I don't think I will be clay barring anytime soon but I did have to wash it as soon as I got home. I hit one puddle that splashed all the way up on the sun roof. But we did have a enjoyable day in the mountains.

Nice pictures! Do you have the stock tires? Also, where did you go off-roading? Looks like a wonderful place.

Re: 2014 GC "EcoDiesel" OWNERS!!! Review..

Just over 1000 miles now. But for the Uconnect and NAV I would give it an 11 out of 10.

But, lousy NAV routing and Uconnect that shows connected but don't connect, I still give it a 9.

I still have the stock tires. I wanted to get some true AT tires like the Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure, but after spending big $$ for the vehicle I need to wait for awhile before spending more. The stock tires did OK in the snow/mud on the road but AT tires would have been better.

The road was to Four Peaks outside of Phoenix AZ we went from 1,500 ft elevation where it was raining to just under 6,000 ft where it was snowing.

Those are some beautiful photos. They look like they could come straight out of a Jeep commercial. My Limited is the same color but I can't replicate that kind of scenery here in South Florida.

Re: 2014 GC "EcoDiesel" OWNERS!!! Review..

Just over 600 miles now on my Limited CRD ORA II and posting my review: 9 out of 10. There were minor fit/finish issues at delivery which still have to be addressed, like curled window seals and interior trim panels not properly installed, but overall I couldn't be happier. This is an awesome vehicle.

Woah, didn't know the snow was on the peaks already. Hmmm... might need to run the Wrangler up there this weekend if there is still some snow up there.

Cool, thank you! I was also thinking about those tires at some point. My salesman thinks I could sell the Michelin's on Craigslist for about $500. Maybe in the spring!
