This is one hill that I had to try twice.

Re: Just filled up with Off Road Diesel

Off Road Diesel - you can get it around here pretty commonly for use....off road. It doesn't pay the highway tax at the pump.

Re: Anyone mod their JGC for serious off roading?

I know you don't want to hear this - but you might be better off considering trading for a model with 4WD LO Range before you start dumping money into off-road mods.

Re: "I don't know how to drive in snow/ice, so I blame my GC" Part Deux

The Jeep in the video does NOT have a trail rated badge, but is a Limited Diesel - so it has to be a QT2 not QD2 - correct?

Re: What do you keep in the compartment under the driver seat?

Which model console vault are you using? Mine has been on me or in the console with no vault forever, but my kids are getting big enough where I need to lock up the console gun.

I hear you on the Pathfinder - the truck that my WK2 replaced was this - but the new Pathfinder wasn't even a consideration.

Re: Bike transport inside jeep

The day I bought my Specialized last I got it to fit 'ok' with the seat and wheels on.

I typically have 'stuff' and kid seats in my Jeep though so I use a hitch rack.
