With those Spacers. Are you running extended bolts? Do you have a locking bolt? Where did you get them from?

Me too! IAMJEEP said it will load the train on April 25, arrive in Kansas on May 1, then arrive in California on May 6, with a SoCal dealership delivery of May 14.

We are probably on the same train.

I've run several types of tires on several jeeps. most recently duratracs and the stock tires on my '11 sahara. The KM2s def feel looser - knobbier. They feel that way in the snow too, and when the road is slick, it fleels like there is less traction than any other tire ive had. so id say they're not great for snow. its only been one day on the white stuff though.

Cause they are MTs
The duratracs are great in snow

I run Toyo MT on my truck and its not the greatest in snow too.

Ordering on Friday - help me decide

I will be going to see my local Jeep dealer Friday afternoon to order a 10th Anniversary Rubicon.
I am getting the automatic transmission
My typical off-road exploits are tame :
cow paths on the farm
dirt roads in the forest
shallow stream crossings
and the typical New England blizzard
plus
I will once a week be pulling a 5'x12' trailer
either with a motorcycle of grass clippings/yard waste

Cannot decide between the 3.73 or the 4.10
I understand the performance each provides.
My questions :
how big is the difference in gas mileage with every day driving to work ?
will I enjoy the tighter acceleration of the 4.10 enough to make a difference ?
any pros and cons listed for both the 3.73 & 4.10 will be appreciated
Thanks
George

I have already paid for my Jeep that is still not here. If it doesn't come soon, got delayed again today, I am going to just get the money back and get some radical mods for my 09!

I bought the jeep for fun, not for gas mileage but it seems either will work for you. You will have a lower crawl ratio with the 4.10, like 44:1 but if you do some long distance commutes, it may not be worth it. I travel 10mi to work each way, the decision of 4.10 was easy.

VOTS shows KZX-Delivered this morning, but dealer says it's not there. Telling me they were promised by transport manager that it would be there today. So we will see. It's been about 50 miles from me for the last 12 days, so frustrating to still not have it.

Can I ask who IAMJEEP is? And if he had my VON or VIN could he lookup the status of my jeep?

877-IAMJEEP - the Customer "service" number for Jeep. They can give you insight on your Jeep, not always the most reliable though, with a VON or VIN.

VOTS is the online tracking system, that allows you to track progress with a VON or VIN once you are in D status.

Does this work in Canada? Current promotion is $3,250 off a new jeep. Dealer will sell it to me at invoice plus the extra $3,250. Any extra benefit to joining Tread Lightly in The Great White North?
