Thanks Chiv!
I agree with you on both points. My wk crd was maybe a touch quieter with the hood open. The diesel will be much better for towing than the hemi in terms of mileage.

It wasn't used during your open house as a prop was it?
I think yours was the one the chevy borrowed and took us to to the track on. Man does that ride nice, and fast - he got it up to 120mph Don't worry, they cleaned the ice cream stains off the seats.

PM me your last 8 of your VIN and I would be happy to verify whether this is true or not.

This might be weird but I like that it has enough diesel chatter/clatter so you KNOW its a diesel... I agree this guy has no idea about towing with a diesel vs. gas.... or high altitude differences... or rock crawling and hill climb differences... or MPG differences... or....

At least it was some good visuals of the exterior and interior of what mine should look like.

However mine should be dirtier than that since I told the dealer to not wash it and add all of their armor-all crap to it.

Cool, at least I know it runs fine then. Can't ask for a better test!

Just remove the stains and clean any brown streaks off my seats from getting the crap scared out of you during the track test.

The best stuff I have ever used on my interior is this



It keeps the nice matte look of the plastic stuff and keeps it super clean.
