Re: ALL NEW NITTO NT421Q in 265/50 VR 20

Mine now have over 10,000 miles on them. I've rotated them once--I plan to do that at each oil change--and they have NO obvious wear.

I'm VERY happy with them.

Re: EVIC vs Calculated MPG

I too use spreadsheets to track my investments, but I pay attention to fuel mileage and drive to achieve lower gas consumption. I accelerate slowly--much to the annoyance of the pushy broads in their...

Re: EVIC vs Calculated MPG

I keep a spreadsheet for fuel mileage and have filled 8 times since I found the fuel-mileage panel in the Jeep. The EVIC has NEVER shown the same number as the real calculation, and it's always...

Re: DD or no?

You have a highly effective 4WD vehicle and you'll drive something else in the winter? What is it?

And what does DD mean? I thought this might be a thread about synthetic v. D(ead) D(ino) oils.

re: So...2014 Owners...who's gonna be the first to throw some 22s

Wow; how do those 14-foot owners even get into a Jeep? Or did you mean '14 as an abbreviation of 2014?

Those 14-footers are sort of like the 20- and 22-foot wheels some of us have on our Jeeps.

Re: Got any lower? Quadralift ove ride

I agree, especially if you can fix the butt-high attitude. Or perhaps the 3 settings could be OR2 on top, Aero (but NOT butt-high) for the middle, and around a 1/2" lower on the bottom.
