Re: White Rim Road

Do you have any other trail recs in that area? I will likely be back over Thanksgiving. I'd be interested in something easily accessible as just a day trip.

Re: White Rim Road

I used 4LO on some of the steep, exposed descents. I never really needed it while ascending. I tried Hill Descent once or twice but it descended way too slow, though there is probably a way to...

Re: White Rim Road

Roki, the Jeep handled everything really well. No wheel spinning or bottoming out. I kept it in the intermediate QL setting for most of the time. I never had to raise it the highest setting.

I got to take my '14 on its first off-road adventure since buying it a year ago. I was very pleased with how things went. It handled the ~100 miles with ease. We encountered a little bit of...

That is my guess. Or it wouldn't close and the guy at the tire shop forced it shut.

Re: Tires for Whtie Rim Road in Canyonlands

Tires for White Rim Road in Canyonlands

Hi all,

I've got permits for the White Rim Road next month. I still have the factory tires on my 2014 WK2. I'd assume that I'd want a beefier tire for the trip but figured I'd ask in case it...

I don't get the jumping you guys experience but mine likes to get stuck in 5th gear when going downhill on the highway. I've got to use the paddle shifters constantly

Re: First oil change some info and comments

For those of you in the Boulder, CO area, Pollard has an oil change package where you pay $235 for 4 oil changes that must be used in a 2 year period.

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

Does anyone get a map in 3D? I don't. Drove through Denver last night and figured if it was going to work it would be there. The map and nav features are the most disappointing IMO.

Re: Cold start advise?

We have had similar temps here in CO and I haven't had any problems. My only issue so far is snow/ice building up in the wheel wells.

The 17th has nothing to do with the government lifting the shutdown. Though I'd imagine it will be over by then.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Are the Overlands having issues? I've noticed a lot of the Overland CRDS don't have a specified yard in MOTS and mots have one update after being built and the location is N/A.

Re: 2014 diesel production

A diesel isn't necessary for me, just a desire. I do however want a luxury SUV with some off-road capabilities. That narrows the field quite a bit.
