Re: Upgrades worth getting?

8 years/ 120K miles is the longest service contract offered by Jeep for the diesel in the US. I have an Overland with 31K miles and it rides well anything but what I would consider firm. The jeep handles well given the air suspension and I would just not mess with that but keep tire pressures at 36 psi cold. I plan to get Michelin LT's as replacement but the factory tires have great tread left and I expect I will get to over 60K miles before replacing them.
DEF plate and fuel cap are covered I have both.

Yes, ordered my overland with the 18's and it is a smoother ride compared to the 20's.

I don't know how much the pressure changes with driving but I check on the way home from the airport today and I was at 41 PSI. I still want to get some good A/T tires. DEF plate will get ordered this week. I'm hoping to get my GDE ECM before friday so I can install it. I was out of town for work and didn't know they'd need the exact vin and what not so I have to wait to get that to them until tomorrow morning.

Re: Upgrades worth getting?

Been doing some searching here and wanted to ask because one guy had a limited but not the air suspension. Will a 275/55 R20 fit on a 4x4 overland?
