Re: First Oil Change- JGC 3.6L

I would only use Mopar oil filters while your Jeep is under warranty. I'm sure you'll get many opinions on oil. My preference is Pennzoil dino.

Re: Moab 2013 Jeeping Pictures

Once you are in town, you could ask about camping options at the Moab Information Center. Also, here is a link to camping possibilities: Moab Campgrounds (http://discovermoab.com/campgrounds.htm)

Re: St Louis Dealer Reccomendation

Re: Trailhawk in Moab - Trip Report

The hood decal is polarizing. Some people love it; in my case I much preferred the beautiful black metallic paint underneath. Seems odd that a dealer would proactively remove it though. In your case...

Re: Stock Air Ride Height on GC TraiHawk

I haven't had a need to research your question so not sure if it's possible. Out of curiosity, why do you want to keep it in OR2 at higher speeds?

Re: Pics @ Big Bend State Park, TX - 2014 JGC Overland 4x4

Re: My first Jeep, a new Trailhawk

So far I like it. The bolsters are regular leather while the lower seat back and bottom cushion are "suede". Looks reasonably durable but time will tell.

Re: My first Jeep, a new Trailhawk

Yeah, there is absolutely no trace of it. I've read that other owners have removed them by letting it sit in the sun and using a blow dryer while slowly peeling.
