Re: 4527 mile trip in 2012 Overland

Nice review and analogies....although, "smooth as Bernie Madoff"???

How about:

as the Dos Equis guy
as Milous on reveal day
etc

As for driving long distances on a new engine. I drove my XJ, albiet the unstoppable 4.0 Litre engine, from 4 miles on the odometer from Indiana to central PA...and 130,000 miles later, not a problem. Lucky? Maybe.

Re: 4527 mile trip in 2012 Overland

Great review! Enjoyed reading it.

I have a road trip planned in July and I am guessing it will be at least 3000+ miles RT. Driving from CO -> CA -> Oregon -> WY -> CO in about 10 days.
