Re: anyone else's jeep make this noise?

My 13 makes the same noise. I really only hear it when the wife is pulling in the garage. I know I've heard it on other WK2's so I assume its perfectly normal.

Off topic question for you OcGrand. Where are you going offroading? I'm in Aliso Viejo.

Re: 2011 remote start? Need help!

This is similar to the flash logic one but is made by DEI (Directed Electronics) who also makes Viper, Python, Clifford and some other brands.
For less than $100 you can't beat it.

Re: Thoughts on trading in the '14 Overland for a Yukon Denali?

That's a great looking Denali.

I almost traded our 13 Overland in for a 14 Hemi as we needed more power for towing. Love the Jeep and it's size so couldn't part with it.

I picked up a lightly...

Re: need help with subwoofer install plz

Just read it has a smart turn on and off. Try it without the remote turn on. If it works correctly you won't have the pop noise when turning the ignition on or off.

You should be fine running off the rears. They are full range. The front 6x9s either have a crossover or filter blocking the highs. Your sub has a crossover built in so best to give it full range...
