2012 Jeep Wrangler: Running Strong at 30,000 miles

It happened on the way to Moab for its second visit to the Easter Jeep Safari. Our Jeep's odometer rolled over to 30,000 miles not one mile after I crossed the Utah state line.

It's running strong, but so far the combination of 75 mph freeway speed limits, rising elevation and a fierce headwind are not adding up to a new "best tank" in the Jeep's mpg logbook.

I was able to pull off and pose the Jeep on a dirt side road before it rolled on to 30,001 miles.

From this point I should roll into Moab in about 4 hours. And then the fun begins. Jeep is introducing some new stuff and I'm expecting to get behind the wheel of the new diesel Grand Cherokee on some nice slickrock.
