Sorry, but that's one of the funnier things I've read here :lol:

Re: Dealer says no one wants off road package

If you get the tow package then you also get the "full-size" spare which of course also gives you a tow point in the rear. So all you need to add is the skid plates.

Re: Dealer says no one wants off road package

I found the same thing in New York. BTW if you think that's bad, go to the south its sometimes hard to find 4WD GCs.

Re: "Willis" Our 2014 Limited Eco Diesel 4x4

Good to see a jeep with larger tires and coil suspension in action with just the level. Wish I was closer to there, about 30 hours for me. The tires look huge in this pic for some reason:

Re: Pic Request - DuraTrac 275/65-18 + RRO Leveling Kit

Congrats, look forward to seeing the pics. I think you made the right move. You get some more height, rubber, speedo isn't off as much and they probably give you some space for flex.

Re: Pic Request - DuraTrac 275/65-18 + RRO Leveling Kit

I would like to see this too, if anyone has one with 265/65/18 and coil suspension. I do think the 275s would be too tight, concerning the OD is larger than the 275/55/20 which is pretty tight.

Re: Production year 2014 Jeep GC Overland

I have a 3.6 11/13 build with 9885 miles so I'm holding my breadth. So far she's been perfect. :)

265/65/18 Why so few?

Probably missing something here, but why are there so few choice for the 265/65/18 tire size?

Seems like a good size for the GC, some extra rubber and lift with little or no modification needed.

Re: Eibach Allterrain Lift Kit WK2

So all 20" are street tires. Here's a street jeep with stock size 20". I'm sure with the lift and larger tire yo u could do that much more.

Re: Airing down tires off road in a 2014....

Not to hijack (related to the thread) can you guys recommend a reasonably priced compressor that is good for the GC. I have a really cheap one and it's slow and VERY noisy.
