Might be but shouldn't from what they stated that 25mpg was across the board, 4x2 and 4x4. Same was said with the Diesel.

Look at the 1st page of this PDF document, says the same for both - http://www.wk2jeeps.com/2014/2014_wk...ifications.pdf

The transmission also helps the V-6 models to achieve 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway on 4x2 and 4x4 models - This from the 2014 Press Release from WK2Jeeps site.

maybe the extra weight from all the bits over the laredo caused the mileage to drop.

And I'm only half way through my first winter driving it... I would def be getting running boards or side steps to help protect the lower painted trim...

Do the guidance lines now finally turn when the front wheels are turned?

Thought I'd love it, but I'm not feeling the body colored trim, looks aftermarket.

It looks like the used a fisheye lens to cover more, instead of letting you choose a view. My current camera has normal, wide angle, and straight down. Wide angle is great when backing out of a parking space. The straight down view is for hooking up a trailer. It also has a mark showing how close you can get and still have room to open the tailgate. Normal works well for backing into a garage as it doesn't distort the way the wide angle does.

But, the 3 mirrors and a turn of the head are still usefull tools.
