Almost one year of ownership

Couldn't be happier with my Jeep and have just now broken the 12K mark after almost a year

Had it in for service two weeks back (oil/filter) and ended up having several flashes completed. Very happy with the results.

-Body Control Module Enhancement
-Diagnostic System Improvement
-TCM
-PCM
-HVAC
-AMP

The TCM flash fixed the 2nd to 1st issue and I feel as if the shifting is smoother. No impact to MPG and it feels a bit peppier.

Coming from a Nissan Frontier, this thing is like a damn Bentley with off-road tires (I changed the stocks out for Nitto Terra Grapplers) to me.

Re: Almost one year of ownership

What do you think of the terra grapplers? Did you go stock size? Do you have 18's or 20's? How many miles have you put on them? I put those on my last truck and are my first choice for the jeep. Seen they have a G2 coming out so will probably wait for those unless I can find a great deal on the G1's.

The G2's are already out. I have a set of g1's I might sell... Only have 10k miles on them

Unless something changed late this week, they're not available in 265/50/20 yet. I called couple tire dealers to get a quote and neither of them could provide one yet.

Re: Almost one year of ownership

I picked up my CRD Nov 25th last year. Today the odometer turned over 29,000 miles. I've used it to tow my 6600 lb Airstream over 5000 of those miles. It's started without hesitation at -22 F and taken me over terrain my Jeep Wrangler had trouble with. I've averaged 18 mpg while towing and 28 mpg overall. My only gripes are with the very poor Sirius reception (yes, I've had the antenna TSB done), and a 1400-1500 rpm vibration/rattle I can't seem to isolate. Overall, I'm very happy with it.

Re: Almost one year of ownership

After 5500 miles my limited 4x4 diesel started giving me rough shifts while downshifting from 2nd to 1st. I took it in and they flashed it with all the same modules as listed by the OP (except the Diagnostic System Improvements). Shifts are now good and no negative side affects.

Purchased in June, 8k miles so far, 28.5mpg lifetime avg fuel economy.

I'm pleased.

I went with the stock 20". I like them...after 11K miles, rotated every 5K, they are in great shape.

My 2011 Nissan Frontier had Goodyear Wrangler DuraTracs. The Tera Grapplers really don't compare to the DuraTracs though. Those tires were amazing on my truck...I can only imagine how they'd perform on the JGC.

Re: Almost one year of ownership

My HVAC is squirrely meaning when you start the diesel and drive off the AC comes on for a minute then switches off and sits there for a while them comes back on seems to overshoot the temp and settle down about maybe 10 minutes. Worst implementation of frequency and amplitude control I have seen in a while. Did the flash for the HVAC correct anything for you? I can live with the HVAC this way but not the best Jeep effort.
I love the diesel by the way and have DOMs DEFI plate installed. I have 6200 miles on mine and it is an awesome vehicle.
Every vehicle has some teething issues but the JGC has impressed me a great deal. I like the ride and handling and the torque with the 8 spd ZF transmission. Implementation of the U-Connect is much better than my Outback or any of my BMWs.

You will NOT be sorry buying one of these. Mine was a pre Christmas build (21 DEC)...

Re: Almost one year of ownership

I really don't use the AC that much unless I'm taking a long trip. I seem to remember when I first got the vehicle that the AC temp regulation was a little erratic but I didn't think to specifically check it after the HVAC flash. Since the flash on those rare occasions that I use the AC no noticeable annoyances sprung up.
