I was just googling it and came across the wsj article about the wrangler and they made the comment that it felt like driving on snakes, which pretty much nails the way it feels now. I'm gonna lower the pressure and try it out. But am interested in some suggestions for starting out at a cold tire pressure, preferably without setting off the alarm. And yes, I know the door says 37.

If the door says 37 I would start there and work down to comfort level. Granted lower psi will equate to lower life span on tires. I will have my Jk rubicon bext week and will be better versed on psi of the tires but currently my jku sport is running 34-36 psi on stock AT tires.

Pat mentioned that as of last week, Auto Temp Control is now a required option on the 4-door Sahara and Rubicon Unlimiteds.

As I just ordered a 4 door Sahara tonight and was forced to get this option, I can back this up.. My dealer said it was a requirement of the 430N.. At least thats what they told me.

You're absolutely right, the Unlimited has the requirement. I believe for the 2-door Sahara the Auto AC is still optional, at least that is how the Jeep website shows it when you build a '15 Sahara 2-door.

I believe you can get heated seats in cloth as well, but I'll let this forum's resident experts confirm that one.

I'll be ready to order a '15 next May, as I have a '12 Sahara as well. Hopefully, the color Tank will still be a an open color choice at that time.

Good Luck!
Right...I was aware that I could get heated cloth seats. Couldn't do that with the 2012. What I was looking for was someone who had both leather and cloth and wondered if there was an opinion one way or another.

Interesting... I may try this, have there been reviews from jeep users? I guess I can google and find out, but it seems pretty seems less

That must have changed, cause when I got sahara it wasn't required... a waste of an option if you ask me

What tire pressure is everyone running on these mud terrains? My EVIC is showing 41psi which I assumed was correct because it's brand new. From what I've read, should I be closer to 35? Thanks!

You have the KM's... I have the KM2's, and I run mine at 28-29 year-round... It's an unbelievable difference! So much better.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Auto A/C is a must take option on Sahara and Rubicon Unlimited. Think of it like the Alpine Sound system that was a must take option. It has nothing to do with the 430N or any other option.

I know dumb question, but any reasoning for this change?
