If you park your Jeep and then the vehicle lowers, it is possible the front bumper cover could wind up lower than the curb your wheels are against. I got a touch of that once backing out with a '14 Overland. After that, if I pulled in far enough for my tires touched the curb I would back up a little before letting the car lower.


It has nothing to do with the speed you approached the parking spot.

If a couple of you send me a PM, I can ship you a set of longer lasting batteries for your sarcasm meter. The obvious workaround would be to not park above the curb/barrier or drive over them...

I always drop mine before pulling into a parking space just to avoid a "surprise" due to being unable to judge the height of curbs, etc.

I recognize sarcasm when I see it. But, I don't always remember to add a when I should.

So keep the battery for the sarcasm meter and send me a heavy duty battery for the memory booster.

A few extras for some I forgot.

I think he was joking about the speed and having the car pre-lowered in Aero mode.

The one of the many drive-by-feel car owners. Thanks for keeping the body shop in business
Yes in all honesty learn/know your car and don't pull up to the curb. The Jeep GC is a relatively short vehicle and will not come close to filling up a standard parking spot.
