I am happy with this rental, as it is about the closest they could have gotten to what I have. I take back all of my comments about Chrysler not handling the situation very well, as I have been very impressed and the whole process has gone rather smoothly. I do understand the rough shifting problem that people with the V6's have been having after a few days, and it is extremely annoying. The 1-2-3 shifts, especially in SPort mode, are clunky, jerky, and horrible. Other than that, I am definitely missing my HEMI power. The V6 is ample but not quick, does not sound as good as my HEMI, and has to try a lot harder. For instance, the V6 shifts down a ton of gears and revs extremely high when passing, and it also takes a second for the power to kick in. My HEMI feels effortless when passing, even at 80 MPH. Overall, the V6 is not too bad but I am definitely glad I got the HEMI. The next update I give you guys will either come when I buy a JGC SRT or RRS, or when my Jeep is fixed (hopefully this week).
Seriously? You actually had an injector fail wide open and (from the sounds of things) hydrolock that cylinder? You're serious?

Do strange events and occurrences follow you around in general? Just wondering

I'm not very picky either, and something like that does not really bother me. Even the engine blowing out does not bother me that much, as long as the replacement works well and doesn't bring up any new issues. I have had no problems at all with the paint, but I agree, it is a Jeep and a few scratches aren't going to hurt anything. I came to the same conclusion with the rock rails. At first I didn't love them because they did not blend perfectly with the vehicle, but it is a Jeep and the rails look rugged and help distinguish the Jeep from other so-called SUVs. Also, they will help when off-roading.

I am no mechanic by ANY stretch of the imagination (although I wish I knew a little more), that is just what I was told. What is so surprising about it (not being satirical, I just don't know)?

And, yes, you would be surprised.

It's just not a common failure to occur while an engine is running (as it happened for you). Injectors might stick or leak but usually it's something noticed after the engine has been off for a while. To do what yours did it would have to hang completely open while running.

Not terribly common.

I cannot believe your bad luck. From your new slow leaking tire, to your scratch from house construction, to the hemi getting replaced. Dang! I actually kept browsing through your pics to get any glimpse of your house that I could. We need a home improvement thread. I am super curious about your house and what you had done. It looks beautiful!

All of those things except the HEMI aren't too bad. The leaking tire is not a big deal, nor is the scratch, and the scratch was a result of the workers' general carelessness. Most of the reason I think I have bad luck is because of my house. I will PM you later and tell you about that unless there are more people that want to hear about it, but it is basically a total disaster. To be brief, I basically completely rebuilt it and everything about that was a mistake. First of all, it took 3x the time it was supposed to and 2x the money, and I found out a year ago that the builder did not waterproof the stone, screwed up the roof, and used bad grout. The whole thing is stone, so they had to redo every piece of grout, tear out every single interior wall and waterproof the stone, and now I need a new roof. Oh, and I have to pay for ALL of his mistakes because he is claiming that none of it is his fault. As I said, if you want more details or pictures, just let me know. I will PM you unless more are interested.

Welcome to construction my brotha. All joking aside, that's a freaking nightmare. It is extremely hard to find a good contractor at a normal rate who does the job right. I am so sorry to hear about it and I'd definitely be interested in hearing more. We can exchange horror stories. Just got my first, new, place on a rural piece of family land. Nightmare! I just want to landscape and then sell the damn place. I have not had one guy do a good job here. Not one.

Hopefully your new hemi won't let you down.

Here is more food for thought.

There is a new & more powerful version of the Range Rover Sport coming soon. It is called the RRS R-S edition and it will have the 550Hp engine currently found on the new Jaguar. It should get to 60Mph in about 4 seconds (or less!).

Oh... and it can still also go Off Road!

Here is a clip of it testing at the Nurburgring:

I might look at it, but it probably won't be out for at least a few months, might not come stateside, and will probably be extremely expensive (and will probably be a limited production model meaning no discounts and possibly and up charge). If you have any other information about it, I would love to hear it.

A RR would be hawt! Although their reliability is unknown and given LR's past I wouldn't expect it to be stellar. I am new here, but I see that you are an active member and a good one at that, I'd hate to see you go. Hopefully you'll find love with an SRT.

Thanks! Just for the record, I will not be replacing the Jeep with the RRS, I would be replacing my Lexus GX. I will have a Jeep no matter what (either the one I have or a new one if the engine swap goes badly).
