Thanks guys. No plans really yet on mods. I thought I do the exhaust, liked the gt haus, but the stock sound is pretty decent especially inside the truck. When I first heard the salesman rev it I was like that won't do. Now that I own the truck I see that you can't rev past 3500rpm in park so that explained why it didn't sound mean when the salesman rev it.
The snow we just had put a damper on things but i hit 500 miles today and rolled into it and went WOT and it's great! Love the passing power from 45-75 just gets up and scoots. Never had a dodge product but this 5150lbs jeep moves like my old ls2 (400/400)6spd gto did. That car was 3800lbs. This hemi motor seems to make a ton of torque much lower than my old ls2 did. Granted the six speed made the car more jumpy than this smooth 8spped auto, but in track mode the jeep feels sweeeet. My gto ran a email@example.com stock. I'm not expecting ET or traps like that but if it pulls a 13.3 with a 103-104 trap at atco in negative da I'd be more then satisfied.
Handling is light years ahead of the gto as well. Probably the biggest surprise so far. 80mph turns with one hand in a truck is interesting lol. Braking, very strong too. I have yet to launch it but will once the streets have dried. Even from second gear this things moves out. In fact gears 1-5 seem very steep and on the freeway when you go to track mode the gear drops from 8 to 7 mKing things much more urgent feeling.
One small downside is with jeep sales exploding and a ton of them on the road, I have had at least 5 or 6 of them driving erratically trying to race. One guy was vey close to me in his limited and was pissing me off. So I manaully down shifted a few gears and rolled into it making him disappear.
Overall I so happy so far. Snow mode worked great in 8" of snow as well. I have yet to even connect to uconnect as I've been busy with work. Plus I'm not a tech savvy guy
. I'm even averaging 13.4 mpg and no I'm not breaking her in on Eco mode
Lastly. I'd like to do a catch can. Seems like many recommend this. Do they sell a clear can? I thought I saw something like that here but my search brought back nothing. Which can is good? I'd rather not have the two hoses going over the valve cover like I've seen one kit do. I'm also not looking to do a custom job. Hopefully I can buy a kit that looks visually stock and 90's into the can instead of over the valve cover.
Thanks again and now.....time for another cruise!jim.
