And my other ride:
Sweet Audi. But why buy an SUV when you already have something AWD with a ton of storage space?

The allroad is currently for sale, so it might not be around much longer. We've got two kids now, and the backseat is pretty small. The JGC's backseat is much more accommodating for two giant car seats. The cargo hatch in the allroad is also not nearly as large as the Jeep's, especially once you've got a stroller in there.

My wife had a 2012 JGC Laredo X and we both really enjoyed it. It's been gone for a few months, and we found that we really missed having a Jeep, so here I am. This time it's my daily driver, so I made sure to get one with a few more options.

No, you can't do that and the ride would be terrible. You can make minor hight adjustments to "normal" heigh with some aftermarket products that allow you to adjust the sensor arms on the QL system, but they are designed primarily for things like leveling and, perhaps changing the "normal" relative height by a small amount. There are discussions about that in the Tire/Drivetrain/Suspension/Brakes forum up above.

Thanks for your response and you've answered my question. I'm going to leave it be.

Im converting the reverse lights to LED. Just got em in today and will be installing this weekend hopefully. Have considered the brake lamps but they'll need modifications to the wiring I'd imagine.

Link to Opt 7 I used and they are phenomenal:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ilpage_o08_s00

My seat warmers are also a little lacking. They seem to get warmer over longer road trips. I'm guessing it's either designed that way or the foam in the seat is causing the issue of them not heating up as quickly as some other vehicles. Also taking car in to get the steering wheel heater TSB done given it shuts off 4-5 times before finally staying on.

Did you pick up 2 sets of the LED's to replace all 4 reverse lights ? Please post the results and how easy/complicated it was to swap them over

Picked up both sets.


Amazon.com: JDM ASTAR 800 Lumens Super Bright AX-2835 Chipsets 7440 7441 7443 7444 992 LED Bulbs ,Xenon White: Automotive

Amazon.com: JDM ASTAR 800 lumens Extremely Bright Error Free 921 912 PX Chipsets LED Bulbs For Backup Reverse Lights, Xenon White: Automotive

I have some from V-LEDs in my Focus ST reverse lights and they are night and day difference. Should be an easy install vs removing the rear hatch panel trim. I'll post a review once I'm done.

My heated seats in my 2014 and 15 get unbearably hot within 3 minutes. I just drove my wife's 2014 Lexus and I could leave them on high for the majority of the drive. I don't know what's up with Jeeps inconsistency.

Didn't realize it was 2 different types of bulbs, good luck with install
