Where I fill up most of the time there are 3 stations in a row. Shell and two more local (Speedway and Thorntons) - it's an ongoing price war. I really can tell NO difference in the Shell vs. the...

Re: Michelin LTX MS2 or LTX AT2

I've had both on various vehicles.

I put the AT/2 on my '14 GC. I actually do end up in the mud durning hunting season so I wanted an AT tire.

I've been really happy with them so far (about 7k...

Re: Live from a stuck Jeep

The traction control limits wheel spin - something you need in the mud.

It actually defaults to traction control off when the select terrain is set to "mud" but in past trucks with traction...

Live from a stuck Jeep

The sunny part of the hill was like grease - super slick mud.

My buddy with a Tundra got me off of the wall. Once I got away from the wall I could move again.

Towing, what drive mode?

In that case - I'd just turn Eco off

I tow with mine quite a bit - I only manually shift to avoid braking on down grades

I like using sport because I don't want my level trailer being adjusted by QuadraLift - keeps constant ride height in sport

Re: OFF ROAD II and ADV tech packages

I suggest that on the test drive, you put it in the nearest pond. If you make it out, it has ORA II. If not, have then order you a new one.

Re: exceptable transmition temp's towing

Mine get to 195-205 when towing pretty fast. I have a bunch of toys so I tow between 1000-5500lbs often. Seems to get up to that temp and stabilize.
