Looking forward to your numbers...do you have the V6 or the V8?

Have a great trip! Be careful in the speed trap known as Virginia, the new jeeps are so smooth it is easy to speed without even knowing it.

V6

Going to leave at about 6PM Saturday. My fiancee and I are pretty good on the overnight drives. We do about 3 hour shifts and continuously change. We usually just put it 5mph over speed limit and let it cruise.

We did similar 2 years ago going from South Amboy, NJ to Orlando, FL in a rented JGC and loved it. It's actually a huge reason we purchased the one we have now.

I'll post all the stats when I have the chance. I'm actually excited for this one.

Have fun sounds like its gonna be a blast. Would have hoped to hear better numbers than 20mpg. Just curious what the mileage on your jeep is? I averaged 18.5-19mpg in my 2012 Overland without ever touching a highway. Would love to hear more details. Be safe!

It was wired. From NJ to VA I was getting about 23.5 mpg and then I'm sure it was cause of the conditions but the roads got very hilly and it was down pouring and it dropped to about 19mpg. The speed was constant between 65-75 mph on cruise.

mikev927 03-31-2013 02:23 PM

And I'm at around 3700 miles now.
