I like to go camping and hiking and the lot so Id actually use the Jeep as a Jeep. Im not talking any crazy Moab type rock crawling, just old abandoned logging roads in Maine with some stream crossings with mud and rocks and the like. Ill probably be interested in one of the off road packages, so is it worth it to get the selec terrain systems or is it wheelable in standard form? Is the selc terrain standard with the 4x4 or is it just with the offroad packages? What are the OEM tires that the standard and the off road packages come with?
I will do a video response here... I have LTX A/T2 in place of highway tires... I just shot it today, as i recalled reading your post. this road is county maintained, since it is not much rain on CO, just today so it is marginal ( it gets bad.... yj on 35" locked would need winching... you can imagine... noise that you occasionally hear is splashes mostly hitting undercarage but on ocasion skidplates... I was driving in "snow" mode pretty mellow...
