Re: odd symbol in my EVIC

Re: hemi difference?

I preferred the 5.7 in my 2010 Ram 1500 Laramie crew cab 2WD. 390 hp/407 tq, but it had 3.92 gears with a limited slip and it hauled ass off the line unlike the WK and WK2 I've had (both with the...

Re: offroading with my 2wd Laredo

This. I was out in Colorado with my parents this summer and my dad and I did basically the entire Alpine Loop in 2WD in his 2006 LJ 6-speed (no lift, but he runs 31x10.5 BFG A/T's). It was still...

Re: 2013 Owners... Built After September 1st 2012...

I think all of the 2013's are Bright White, at least mine is anyway. I was in the same boat as you - got a crazy deal on a lightly used model (4,700 miles) and really wanted the saddle seats.

Re: Mirror caps

Another note - when you google search for those part numbers you might notice that you are getting results for a Durango. That is fine, as the Durango and WK2 use the same exterior door handles.

Re: My Jeep needs a quart of oil ...

I am using the one from Billet Technology (they are a vendor here). It's very easy to install - if you can change your oil I'd guess that you could do this.

Re: unusual noise

If you have Quadralift, the system will level out the Jeep after you park it and the noise is the compressor kicking on.

They say it doesn't leave a trace and when I had warranty work done they didn't say anything or ask about a tuner ever being installed.

Agreed - your driver side projector looks messed up somehow. The pattern that your passenger headlight is throwing should basically be replicated by your driver side.

That looks surprisingly good. I'm on the hunt for a set of bright white mirror caps to go with the painted door handles I installed a bit ago. Might give this a try and see how I like it.
