Took the train from San Diego this morning to Irvine, and picked up my 6spd Mojave from @RobTrachtman Got 4% under invoice and no extra fees. Also, did a small amount of financing at 0% for 36 months. Everything about it was a win-win. I am in LOVE with the Hydro Blue Mojave. I am so glad that my first choice was discontinued when I went to place the order. Contact Rob Trachtman at Tuttle-Click CDJR and you will get one of the best deals on the West Coast!!

Nice! Did they still have the white Sport S in the building? The one maxed out with a lift, tires, etc.? I had to go to Redlands from SD to get mine. Did the one way car rental and it worked out great. See ya around.

Couple things I noticed:
Auto Stop/Start wasn't active until I got to about 35 miles on the odometer....It didn't work during test drive or when I pulled it off the lot....I think it's disabled originally so that they can move the vehicle around or something......not sure, don't care anymore because it works

LED headlights will turn night into day! everybody flashes me when I'm driving down the road....and no, not the good kind of flashing either

Never owned a diesel truck before (although I drive a lot of diesel fire trucks)....so I'm hoping my first mistake isn't putting gasoline in it

paid like $500 for a "windshield protection plan" after seeing so many pictures and videos of jeeps having their windshields cracked just from driving down the highway.....the plan will fix/replace your damaged windshield up to $5,000 in total repairs....I hope I never need it, but that it's worth it when I do

paid extra for the protection coating.....normally I don't fall for these kind of traps, but it was another $500 expense and for an almost $60k brand new vehicle, I thought why the hell not....they will coat the inside and outside and supposedly will even repair small rips/punctures in the seats.....I'm going back to the dealer later to get that stuff added on, and it will be like a free detailing because they will of course have to wash everything inside and out to apply the coating

There are conditions when the auto stop/start doesn't work. For example, if you have the climate control on Auto, and it hasn't reached the temperature you set, the engine won't shut off as expected. If you just have the AC or heat on the non-auto mode, the auto s/s should work fine. The manual explains it.

Mojave
Hey folks. just took delivery of my Mojave a couple days ago. Last jeep was a ‘95 Wrangler...so lots to learn, and wow has the quality of jeeps gone way, way up. This vehicle is seriously impressive. For my desired uses, the Mojave was the perfect trim spec. I had planned on a Rubicon, as i hadnt heard of the Mojave. Seeing it at the dealer and subsequent research into what the package was swayed me right over.

downsized out of my 2500, and with the full size truck market being what it is right now, well, i made out really well.

starting to do searches and research, but my plans are:

-some way to make center brake light do a 3 or 4 flash on braking
-expedition/camping gear
-aev bumper/winch
-hitch mount carrier for the KTM
-some mode of cold air intake that mates up to a snorkel
-exhaust
-a tuner that lets me change octane ratings easily
-35’s and gears when the stock tires are done.

Howdy to all - took delivery back in Feb. 2020, but have been scouring the forum for input on various mods. Thanks to everyone for their great input! I have a 2020 Overland, recently leveled with new 35s - will put that info in another thread.

Just got my first Jeep on Friday! Traded in a 2016 Challenger Hellcat and got a steal on this Overland sent to SCA for custom work. Loving the Jeep life so far and even got "ducked" at the grocery store this weekend lol! Can't wait to see what adventures she takes me on.

I got my JT on this past Saturday the 17th. We are loving it so far. My dad is standing in the background with my son and my daughter is eyeballing the new ride LOL!

My dad picked up his black beauty about a month ago. It was our first club meeting.

It is my first Jeep. We’ve had several in the family over the years, but nothing serious. I have no idea what I’m doing at this point, but I’ll figure it out.

I put in my own homemade rails in the bed today after finding a thread on here. I’ll put my Tiger T3 cover in tomorrow before we head out on our first trip in it to see my in laws. Like I said, we are loving it so far!
