No Frank TJ, they are NOT all trail rated. According to Jeep, only those Jeeps that are properly equipped get Trail Rated. That is straight from the Jeep.com website.

So I guess my Jeep is not "Trail Rated". No skid plates

He said the engine will eventually “learn” my driving habits. Is there any validity to this? The odd piece is that I also notice the reverse of this when coasting at highway speeds, 55-80mph. I find the engine incapable of maintaining its current speed and I am constantly applying pressure to the accelerator to stay with traffic. So, when I apply the gas pedal I really have to stomp it. Is this a function of 4-cyl/ECO mode?
I did notice this "lag" feeling in my hemi but it almost feels like the tranny is slipping. Or maybe it's the traction control doing it's thing, I have no idea.

I really wish we could disable the traction control all the way, I don't need mommy watching over me all the time.

I would think the first two priorities from the WK2 board are:

1) Is Jeep fully aware of the shudder experienced by many WK2 owners? What is the potential prognosis and cure? Is this related to prior models shudder challenges?
Another +1 on the shudder question.

There's an autostick that allows you to downshift; use it; I do.
