After seeing the pictures of your Jeep, I think my Willys in Baja will look great.

Two more weeks, it's on the train and the train has left the station.

mcraft,

Where is your Jeep heading to? Mine went all the way to Kent WA in about 7 days, from the Air Line Junction location. I just compared my landing location to the others that had builds sent to the same area. And I hit refresh in the tracking thread about 375 times a day too...

Anyone tried this and care to comment?

"Throttle Calibration
Throttle calibration can substantially improve throttle responsiveness over "factory standard." Many people notice what appears to be sluggish throttle response or a "dead area" at initial accelerator depression. Throttle calibration can take care of these.
1) Insert ignition key and turn to "ON" (not start).
2) Wait for all idiot lights to go out. Check Engine Light may remain on.
3) Slowly depress the accelerator pedal all the way to the floor.
4) Slowly release the accelerator pedal until it's all the way back up.
5) Turn the ignition key to "OFF".
6) Start the engine.
Most drivers notice an immediate change in throttle response, but depending on your driving style, you may need to repeat this procedure periodically due to the computer's adaptive programming. You likely need to repeat this procedure any time the battery is disconnected."

By the way, I reduced the tire pressure from 41 psi to 35 psi and that pretty much eliminated the "driving on snakes" feeling the Rubi was giving before. 2015 RHR 2 dr 6spd manual.

There's no real way of getting around lag with DBW....

Picayune, Mississippi. It's a small town about 48 mile northeast of New Orleans, La. The switch from train to truck takes place at Port Allen, La. If it gets here around the 30th, that will be fine. I'm going to be out of town the week before anyway.

I'm still trying to figure out what DBW means.
