We lived in central Florida for over 20 years and we visited the space center one time - we kept putting off visiting there.

We drove out to the Cape one time to see a night launch, oh my gosh - that took my breath away. We could watch many of the launches from our office building in the Orlando area, always a great sight to see.

Congrats on the new Jeep! I REALLY like the comfort of the new JKU.....much better for me and keeps me in a Jeep!

Can't wait to see some of your adventures in it and maybe our paths will cross one of these days!

Just out of curiousity, is that the 5.7L "regular" Hemi, or the VVT version?

Also, what does AEV say that the tow rating is?

I have the stock V6 and don't plan on an engine change unless something goes wrong with it. I do have a friend that has a 2014 Jeep JKUR AEV 350 like mine and he got the cylinder miss you hear about. After a couple dealers, $700 charges, still was missing and Chrysler would not honor the warranty, he re-powered with a Chevy truck V8 motor and transmission. Professionally installed in Los Vegas at the cost $20K. Too much for me unless the stock motors goes belly up.

Towing... Here is the AEV forum. Haven't look but since it is a stock JK engine and transmission it should be similar towing limits of a stock JKUR.

Here is a pic of a demonstration of a Confererate Civil War soldier firing and loading as per training of the day. He was able to fire and load 3 times in less than a minute.
