Re: Handling the JGC on ice

Snow mode is a 50/50 split with a more sensitive stability/traction control intervention.

Re: Handling the JGC on ice

And 4wheel drive does not mean 4wheel stop.

Re: CAI 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude

AFE Momentus GT is true CAI and uses stock air inlet area. Looks like a nice piece. More expensive than all others though.

I agree. I ordered and my dealer beat another dealer who had a Black '14 Limited Hemi non Lux2 by $5000. Only disadvantage is waiting.

Re: My 2014 Jeep GC Build

The offset of the Black Rhino Sabi is 35. I'm not sure what our stock 20's are. The Sabi's are designed for a 285/40-20 tire.

Wheels for snow tires

I got mine from OK Tire (Canada) as a set with the tires. Figured bending something worth 80-90$ on a pot hole is better than a nice rim worth 300$+.
