Re: BEWARE*** IForged and Forgestar wheels :(

Currently waiting to hear back from IForged's engineer. More than likely I will take the refund. All of the designs they offer that I like are thin split spokes. I don't think it would be wise to go...

Re: Possible New Wheel Manufacture

one piece monoblock forged. 6 or 7 spoke. medium concavity. Nothing crazy or too deep. That would be the ultimate for me.

Re: 2014 Jeep SRT tuning..... Diablosport

I've been banging my head against a wall trying to get solid reports on this. I've even started threads on multiple forums to no avail. "Improved throttle response" is not concrete data.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

^ Honestly I'd ditch all the colored accents. They're not "ghetto", but they cheapen the look of the Jeep to me...more of a Mustang GT/Camaro RS type of mod.

That's just my opinion.
