Re: Is there a comparison repoort that includes Grand Cherokee?

mdx is not my cup of tea, and with q7,toureg, cayenne trio being the practically same thing with different packages (and a super expensive price tag for cayenne's turbo or S models) I am really left...

Re: Is there a comparison repoort that includes Grand Cherokee?

I agree, but having driven jeep since 2003, I simply add WK2 into the consideration bag along with the others that are ML350 and X5. I thought about 4Runner and Pathfinder, possibly the new Explorer,...

Re: HEMI real life mpg on WK2

Thank you guys.
I am surprised at the difference. Now not only the price, but also mpg is a disadvantage of hemi (or SRT), in addition to urge to drive it like it's meant to be driven..

Sorry to hear that.

Re: Major design flaw

Like a doubledecker bus driver. You know their seats are on a big spring, and they keep bouncing around, and they swivel. I didn't know Monte Carlos had that.

Re: LED Liftgate Reverse and Tail Light Install w/pics

You sure gambled with thos 1 star LEDs from Amazon, luckily your end result looks 5 star. I hope they last.

How about 3rd brake light? Any plans to swap that one?

Re: Mopar Chrome Fog Light Bezels

Did anyone compare the light output to see if there is any difference with these on/off? Maybe additional reflection?

Re: HELP!!! Antenna removal ???

How easy is it to get it off/on? The thing is, if I end up buying a WK2, I would have to get rid of the antenna on the way home, because the thing wont fit in my garage! :)

Re: ppl with wk2

Would make the jeep look too much like a minivan. I would skip it. But I am in favor of debadging whenever possible.
