Thoughts?

I bought copper plugs thinking thats...

Re: UConnect 13.19.0 - Unofficial

I did this last night. No issues whatsoever. The HD radio issue was really bugging me and it was worth it just for that.

Now if they can fix the fuel saver button issue I will be happy.

Nope. The Summit front end is basically an SRT front end. You would have to replace the entire bumper,
