Oh...wait til it snows...ya wanna talk about potholes

We will feel like we're off-roading every time you slowly
emerge in and out of one.Potholes in NYC tend to resemble
moon crates within a weeks time.

Scout On most new vehicles the manufacturer recommends that for the first 750 miles you vary the speed on it. In other words don't get it out on the highway and set the cruise at 75 mph and drive for 4 hours. If you were to do so at least slow down to 55 for 20 miles, then back up to 75 etc. City driving is best for breaking in a new vehicle.

Not..exactly true. The rings still have to seat and so on... Check your owners manual. There should be a break-in section in it. Mine (2004 TJ) said to take it easy for the first 1000 miles with breif full throttle acceleration from time to time. Like if your running down the road in 5th just lay it to the floor, but remeber to keep it within the limits of the law.

Hank Don't fell scared to take it off road. Just remember to take it easy. I think the better you treat a new jeep the longer it will last.

Find the biggest rock and...

no...I second that. Just take it easy for a grand or so on revs and any off roading etc.

Hank I'm not sure but I would always try to take it easy for the first few thousand miles or so.
