2- What is the direction of flow from the trans to the stock trans cooler? Upper hose in the cooler and lower hose out?

Many thanks and I can't wait for news of the 2012 SRT Jeep!!!!!

We don't have any SRT guys here tonight. Sorry bout that.

We test for 20" and have unique features like an air intake above the grille and vented drive lines to help with this.

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Why was the decision made to not offer roof cross rails on any of the WK2 models, when it has always been an option before on previous GC versions?

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

What is the reason for using fabric inner wheel wells instead of the usual plastic, I believe they will be difficult to keep clean looking and never mind standing up to power washers.

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

A feature I have really liked on prior Grand Cherokees that I have owned has been the Adjustable Pedals. I noticed that they are not offered on the new Grand Cherokee, is there a reason they are no longer available?

What could be a reason for this?
