I am stoked to try and see what kind of mpg I can get with Eco button on.


My 2010 SRT Jeep only got 14 mpg on the highway. lolz

As soon as I figure out how to post pics on here I will! Just a stock 2012 Laredo in silver right now. I've had it two days now and I already am thinking about how I'm going to customize it.

Looks good. I will eventually dip the tail light chrome. For now, I did the headlight swap, tints, running boards, fog lights, grill and crossbars.

What did you do to your WK2 today?

Had Xpel ultimate film applied to the front end, installed an AFE stage 2 pro guard 7 filter on my Ecodiesel along with a GDE ecm. Haven't driven it too much yet but it's slightly louder at idle like others have said and I can hear some turbo whistle and additional intake noise. It's got some pull to it now!

How well does this "Plasti-Dip" stuff hold up to the elements?

Before I got my Jeep, I had a Honda Accord with Wheels, and Hood dipped Matte black alll summer. Held up EXTREMELY well. Paint was flawless when i removed it. Much cheaper and easier than vinyl wrapping.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Last weekend I gave it a good wash, removed minor scratches, used the MOPAR touch up paint and clear coat to fix some small chips (worked surprisingly well), clay bared the entire car and finally waxed her. She looks great and super smooth. Took awhile but well worth it.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Fell asleep before I could post last night that yesterday I spent nearly 8 "quality hours" in the driver's seat of mine...and managed to top 22 mpg for the day at a steady 65 mph. The EVIC was dead on with the actual calculation, too. I topped off in Ohio on I70 just east of the I77 interchange and still had a quarter tank left when I pulled into the driveway in far eastern PA. Got a free "power wash" from Mother Nature, too, just west of Somerset PA. LOL

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Installed a Berger Motorsports CCV catch can for my ecodiesel. Then I installed a Blendmount and a mirror tap for my V1. It's starting to feel like mine now.

Tomorrow I hit the road going from Eugene to Sacramento with a detour by Crater Lake for lunch.
