Bought my first Jeep in December. 2011 Grand Cherokee Overland. Its not actually my first Jeep, back in my high school days when I moved in with my dad he let me use his 74 CJ5.
Couple questions if anyone wouldn't mind answering and I know that others have asked the same question, but just hoping to get some updated answers.
1) When I'm off road and have the it raised up to the max every time my left front tire (at least how it feels) I get a loud noise. Everytime it happens I think that I just broke something. I'm not driving hard just creeping along. I think that since I have it raised that the suspension just doesn't have any more travel and it does this maybe someone can help.
2) When I exit my Jeep and go to lock it by pushing the button on the door handle it doesn't register. I seen that some one else had the some problem in a post. Is there a fix for this or do I need to have the dealership take a look at it. The Passenger side has no problerms or the rear hatch just the driverside. It unlocks just fine but 80% of the time it won't lock.
3) What are some good sites to go to for aftermarket items. I'm looking at getting a cold air intake, getting a new chip or engine programmer, or just anything else like body modifications. My friend has told me of a couple sites but I guess 2011 Jeeps are to new to get anything.
4) Stupid question but what does WK2 stand for. I asked a friend and he didn't know as well. I'm sure as soon as someone tells me I will kick my self.
