Re: Possible buy-back, or other recourse? What can I reasonably expect from Jeep?

Jeep offered either an extended warranty or 8 free oil changes. I replied by saying the problem is systemic and may reoccur. I'm not interested in the warranty because I don't want to keep visiting...

Re: Goodyear Fortera HL 265/50-20: replacing at 25,000 miles

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

They look great - it looks like a Jeep now. Is there any rubbing?

Re: Duratrac wrangler 275/55/20

Re: Duratrac wrangler 275/55/20

I'm at the top now, Hector Heights. A little mud on the trails, and the tires work great. I did not air down. I try to avoid that if I can save the time.

Nice tires, Jmarcher. I'm still on my stock Forteras at 22K but when they wear out will go with a beefier tire, maybe like yours. And I too find myself driving around town at ORA-1 more and more.

Re: Drive or transport new JGC Overland Diesel ???

Another vote here for doing the drive yourself. 1,100 miles can be done in two tankfuls, so about $170 in fuel costs.

It will be good bonding time between you and your rig.

Oh, and if you're a...

Re: 2015 Overland Eco Diesel - comments / observations
