Re: What Are You Paying A Month For Your U-Connect 8.4?

Re: Harsh bump feel during a 2-1 downshift.

Did a bit more searching and it appears there is a superseded version which includes the fix to retain ECO mode setting 21-004-15 (http://www.wk2jeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk2_2100415.pdf).

Harsh bump feel during a 2-1 downshift.

Is 21-003-14 REV. A the most current TSB to correct the harsh bump feel during a 2-1 downshift? I'm definitely feeling this while crawling to a stop. Thanks.

If you're doing any off-roading I would lean towards the 18's for better wheel protection with the thicker tire profile. The 20's require a lower profile tire.
