Re: 2015 Overland or Altitude?

Re: Asking for help on how to not get ripped off.

$507/mo rent for a Limited is rediculous.
Why people think it's easier to get out of a vehicle with a lease is beyond me.
It's WORSE, you are locked in for 3 years.

It's a result of politicians afraid to use the "Tax" word. Instead they introduce more "Fees".

Re: $50k+ is a lot of money for a new vehicle...

You said it right above.

You said I can pay $50K cash with 1/11 of our take home pay.

The math is really tricky here.

11 * $50K = $550K TAKE HOME PAY.

Take home means, after taxes.

Re: First Issue - No Sound

I doubt it will work, but I'd try a factory reset before driving 65 miles.
Note you will lose all settings if you factory reset it.

Might be a separate fuse for the amp too.

Re: Blackstone Oil Analysis Report on Factory Fill Oil 2014 Pentastar V6 with 6000 Mi

131K, that was just broken in. My 2002 4.0L GC had 227K and my service guy had 300K on his 4.0L. It's keeping the rest of the Jeep together that's usually the limiting factor :)
