Re: 08 5.7 Engine Shutting off while driving

Does the 08 have a traditional ignition switch, or is it a fobik thingy?

07 and earlier WK ignition switches are prone to failure, but ISTR that system changed somewhere after 07..

Re: Why $1000 extra for brushed trim in the California edition.

They do it because they can.
For some folks it is well worth it, for others it isn't. To each his own.

Re: 2014/2015 Brown/light Frost Interior Owners

Husky Weatherbeater tan.

The color is good, but I wish the mats themselves were more flexible.

Re: Why Do Complaint Posts Get Closed So Early?

I just happened to read those two threads.

Maybe we need a FEMA camp where such threads can be moved to so they can burn themselves out.
