We live in Western Washington... and going to make a 4 day trip over to Yakima Valley Wine Country in Prosser for a little glamping.... Staying in an RV Park... But the main idea is to see how the XJ will do going over the mountains pulling our little Hitch and Haul trailer.... I reversed the Hitch so now the trailer pulls level... instead of downwards.... I took it into Express Lube and had a full service done... they told me the air filter looked great!! Glad I double checked... filter was full of dirty oil... so off to get a new one....

Thanks!! I love Moses lake area we used to go to the potholes years ago!! So far so good the jeep did pretty good over snoqualmie pass it got close to the red area on the temp gauge but not quite my guess is about 240 degrees.. The jeep slowed down to between 40 and 50 mph near the top.. But over the little passes between ellensburg and Yakima it had no trouble at all...
