Are you 100% positive? Upon closer examination, it looks like there is enough clearance. My Summit has the V6 if that makes a difference. Thanks, Joe

Re: respect the 17s!

I believe it is the Hemi that triggers HD brakes. A V6 may have the regular brakes. But I am not 100% certain. Anyone to confirm??

Re: respect the 17s!

I think you are correct. Maybe Raptor assumed I had the Hemi when he said the 17" wouldn't fit.
