Has anyone heard more news about the ignition recall? Keep getting stupid jeep card offers in the mail but no updates on the recall.

I TOTALLY agree!! I tried to explain, but it fell on deaf ears!! In the end, I'll win (and get what I want).

In the last 3 months, I've gotten 2 speeding tickets and, just for fun, a running a red light. I LIKE driving fast! I don't think I can trust myself with a 5.7L Hemi....

You can get a 2"-2.5" basic kit for >$150 or so, there's even the super basic kit for the JK that's just poly spacers front and rear that can be had for around $50... You'll be able to clear 35's with a 2" lift and it'll change the whole attitude of Truck Norris 2.0... Be forewarned tho, when you increase the tire size even just a couple inches, you'll definitely notice the torque loss. If you want to go bigger you'll want to gear it also, then you start talkin some coin... Unless you plan on some serious offroad use, the 2"-2.5" & 35's will be great, I've done quite a few of these setups and it never fails to impress, especially for the $.

I've also only received the initial notice. I called the dealer shortly thereafter and they hadn't received word of a solution yet. I'll touch base with them again next week and see if anythings changed.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

I know I don't have the WK any more, but I feel like this is where I belong...

I got floor mats today. If you can't tell, they're rubber, with tire treads! They ROCK!!
