Re: Who's named their jeep and why?

Haven't had that problem, but the handle on the spare tire cover broke the same way on my 2014 GC. Warranty will cover it, but the handle is not an available part - they will replace the entire cover...

Failure at the exact same time is unlikely, but I had three sensors fail on a Tahoe within a week of each other when it was 8 years old.

Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

What happens if you install this and then, when the vehicle is in the shop for something totally unrelated, the dealer does a UConnect update which they are prone to do even when you tell them not to?
