Re: 22" Wheel alinement, questions I need your help

There is no need at all for upgraded control arms with an Eibach kit. I spoke with an SRT tech at my dealership who checks out all of the incoming SRTs. He said the factory ships them with -2.2...

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

Cayenne TT is $110-115k. That's what I've been able to negotiate with decent options. The S is hardly better and way overpriced. I love Jeep and always have. I had the first true SRT jeep, the 1998...

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

I'm quite happy with my build quality. It is definitely $65k build quality. It is nowhere near $90k build quality IMHO, but that's another issue.

On the service, I also expect special treatment. I...

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

I've made the decision I will not be upgrading. I will wait until there is a full Jeep redesign and if they put the 6.2SC in that, then I will decide. If it has an Alpha platform and/or has any...

Re: More Delays For Jeep! Now its a 2018 model?

For the record, if this is true. It's smart. The Wk2 Grand Cherokee is so damn popular and such a great buy there's little reason to change it yet. It's a beautiful design and they are flying off the...

Re: thoughts/discussion-would staggered tires be ok on our SRT's?

I understand this doesn't address your question but I believe all of the Concavos rub on RM mids. You'll need a +40 offset at minimum to not rub on mids. I think most of the RM guys with custom...
