Re: I have installed my new K&N noise maker

Anybody notice any significant mileage gains with a CAI? Looking for any help I can get with gas prices approaching $5 / gallon.

Re: What options on your GC did you discover weeks after?

Does the Laredo X have this option as standard? I haven't noticed anything like this on mine.

Westin Platinum Tubular Side Steps

Anybody install these? My fiancÚ decided that our new 2012 GC Laredo X needs some kind of steps since its much higher than our Subaru Forester was. Any suggestions for steps besides the Mopar ones?

Re: Interest in 2012 JGC

I've always put K&N filter elements in my cars, but from what I'm reading these days, the stock filter performs just as well and keeps more dirt out!

Re: U Connect 8.4

Is the firmware in our U Connect systems easily upgradeable? I mean is it something we can download, put on a key drive and update it ourselves, or does it have to go to the dealer for that?
