I called my dealer today and they said they still haven't received repair Intel from Chrysler. Have you learned anything more yet?

Well figured it out. The gasket from fel-pro is a 1/3" longer than it should be so it gets pinched on the left side of the head. Dealer gasket worked perfect

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Hey gents, ordered a full compliment of black badges today but can't find a black Laredo badge... Has anyone tried to find one in the past with any luck? There are black Limited badges everywhere, can't believe there are no Laredo badges out there.

Affirm brother, been all over eBay and Amazon, sent messages to multiple vendors that have various Jeep badges inquiring if they have or can have made what I'm looking for. So far, no joy... Thinkin I'll just order a standard replacement and paint to match the others if I can't find one.
