Re: Ecodiesel 4x4 OEM Tires - What did you get?

Mine came with Goodyear Forteras. I live near San Francisco, so there's hardly any weather here. The Forteras work okay in the dark, when the sun goes down. :D

Re: My Paintless Dent Repair Experience

Nice, SaintGermain, and thank you for sharing and also for the good photos. I have a similar ding on mine. I'll look for a PDR place and I'll take it around and ask, like you did.

Possible causes for oil leak down front of engine?

Roadkill make sure they fix this. I check my oil at every fill up and it stays constant. You of course want that too, and a dry, clean engine. I will check my engine front too for leaks.

Re: 2015 Overland Eco Diesel - comments / observations

Also, before I bought the JGC I rented some Wranglers. I found the ride too harsh, and the JGC nice and comfortable. Maybe for me & SWMBO it's an age thing, we are middle aged.

Enjoy your new JGC...
