Re: Twin Turbo 2013 srt8 in progress

Is the kit available without installation? I'm one of those people that takes pride in building my own vehicle and installing stuff myself instead of paying another mechanic to do it.

Re: Locking wheel lugs Useless?

I challenge your friend to remove a lug nut with a pair of vice grips, that is torqued to at least 100ft/lbs, maybe more torque if the mechanic at your local dealer is a non torque wrench using...

Re: Any Black Forest Greens?

I loved my Black Forest Green '13 Laredo. Best color I've had on a vehicle. I'll dig up some pics.

Re: Eibach Pro System Lift

.5"or 12mm, worth of lift in the rear? For $1200. Good gawd. And with a spring rate double the OE rate, I would hate to see how the ride quality is.

As far as snow performance with the mud grapplers...they are to this day the best tire I've ever ran in snow and ice. They are siped from nitro and perform great.

Re: Turbo 2014 SRT

You would have to have wheel spin and some kind of deflection in the suspension to have wheel hop.

Re: My 2014 Jeep SRT just broke the 4 second barrier

Re: My 2014 Jeep SRT just broke the 4 second barrier

Pretty good numbers! Should be good for a high 12. I'm curious what it would run at a track. I'd guess 12.7ish? Plus or minus a tenth or two, who knows maybe better.

I can't wait for some good...

Re: '13 Deep Cherry Red Trail Hawk in Sedona, AZ

Not sure. I actually bought a second Trail Hawk Trail Rated badge to install on the right side fender, but just need to properly measure it out before installing it.

'13 Deep Cherry Red Trail Hawk in Sedona, AZ

Ran Soldier's Pass today in Sedona, AZ. Have to say I wish the air suspension did a bit better, though I didn't air down. OR1 is too low, and OR2, like many have said, is very stiff. Good thing this...

Re: No GJC; purchased Compass instead

Did not know that. All the Patriots I drove were Trail Rated models, a Freedom Edition and a Limited. Loved everything about the Limited except the CVT 2 speed gearbox.

Re: GCs Getting Bigger, Cargo Area Smaller

The WK2 seems like it has more room than my '98 5.9 ZJ did. And more than my old Range Rover as well.

Re: Mud Flaps - Yes or No

I might have to give it a shot. I think with some door edge trim from autozone the edge of the cut would look a bit better. I'll give it a shot.

Anyone know of a supercharger for the 3.6l VVT.

It makes plenty if sense if you've ever supercharged a non oem supercharged engine. Different strokes for different folks.

I can't wait until they release this. I'll buy one ASAP. Not so much for the power increase, but hopefully transmission programming improvements.
