A good use for the 115V outlet

Re: New Owner - Thoughts and questions

Once you are talking carjacking, it's a dangerous situation period. The carjacker could just as easily point his gun at you and demand the fob.

Re: Help me please

If you're worried about all the gizmos failing in five years, consider picking up the Lifetime Maxcare warranty which you should be able to get for a little under 2k. For me, it was a no-brainer as...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

So it's done for the 2013s for sure, and I think I saw earlier that it's not an option for the 2014s. I guess this will keep my Summit nice and rare :)

Re: Full Spare tire option has different tire on it.

I think the main reason it's a Kumho is that the tire is an odd size 245/65/R18. It's not as wide as the regular tires (probably so it can fit in the well.)

When I was getting ready to take...
