Re: Mid winter reviews

2014 Overland with ORII and nokian studded snow tires. So far, so good. Cold, snowy, icy winter in the Western Maine mountains- no troubles driving as long as I'm careful when it is nasty. Have not...

Re: GC vs Land Cruiser vs Range Rover

My previous vehicle was a Toyota Sequoia. It is a great truck. It has had no major problems other than the frame recall/replacement. I admit that was kind of a pain but Toyota took care of everything...

Re: Cold start advise?

-20 F last night. Did not plug in engine block heater. Jeep started up fine this morning @ -14F. So far so good. Will make sure to plug it in if it is that cold and windy.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Yeah. Don't want to jinx anything but it seems to be moving through quickly. When I ordered the dealer said they only had one other order in and the timing was good with October allocation.
