Re: Spare Tire Relocation

Getting a flat offroad in the mud with a spare underneath the vehicle is a concern even if you could fit one there. With that extra room underneath, it will allow for future steal bumper mods with...

Re: Merry Christmas! disable key fob trick...

I tried that too but it did not work with my one-touch door entry system, so the layered tin foil is the most discrete way of locking my keys inside when I am out in the water.

Re: NEW 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4X4 Bright Silver Paint Problems

After a good wash and wax, I noticed four areas where the black metallic paint has the looks of rock chips down to the primer. These are in areas where rocks don't hit. I looked closer at the paint...

Re: We want OME suspension...

:) My Jeep got the RRO level kit installed today with a really good alignment by the local 4X4 shop. What a difference, feels more solid with it level and I don't have the touchy steering with body...

Re: Trail Rated?

I believe you can extend your breather tubes for deeper water fording like the LOST KJ/KK guys do with their Liberties. The biggest Trail Rated option for making it through the Rubicon with a stock...

Re: 5 tire rotation and TPM?

The oem doughnut spare is a joke for 4WD vehicles. Having a good full size spare can save myself from a sticky situation if I get a flat offroad or in the snow, plus if I only wear down four of my...

Re: Stop Leak Product Recommendation?

Leaking heater core already? Past 35K and out of warranty too? That's not good...I hope these newer models don't have the same blend door issues like some of the previous generations did.

Re: 5 tire rotation and TPM?

Same here, I just replaced my four 20's and 18" steel spare with five 18" Saharas, I still need to buy a tpm for the spare. Some packages do come with a full size spare though.

Re: Do the Mopar rock rails help with stone damage to the lower doors?

The Jeep splash guards don't look that awkward, I need some to keep the road debris from collecting on my new Jeep. I just upgraged my wheels to Sahara 18s with silent armors. A slightly wider stance...
