eco mode of 4x4
 
Appears on website that eco mode only comes if you get a 4x2 and not in 4x4s?

4x4 has this as well..Website is dumb. The Overland 4x4 I test drove had it so don't believe that site.

Yep, eco mode is also defaulted on my 4x4 model.

Yup, my 4X4 has ECO mode that defaults to on. It's the button below the AC controls that is lit up.

I wonder what the bulb life is since it's always on. I think I'm helping it by turning it off every time I get in to drive :D

I did not see any big difference in performance when it is off .. So I keep it on :-)

Sooooo, does anyone know if the "Fuel Saver Technology" on the Hemi cuts off when you turn off "Eco" mode?

It would make too much sense if it actually worked that way...wouldn't ?:thumbsup:

Well, it would be a huge plus, especially for the SRT guys.

Am I wrong or is it an LED? I'll have to check. But if so it would probably outlast the life of the vehicle many times over. The general life expectancy for an LED is around 50K hours I think, which equates to almost 6 years of it being on 24/7, and over 34 years of it being on 4 hours a day every day.

Well that light might last forever but I am going to wear that button out pushing it everytime I put the vehicle in drive....GRRR:mad:
