Re: Rocky Road Adventure rack

I'm looking at this rack as a platform to stand on with tripod while taking photos - would need to attach a sheet of plywood or something obviously. Has anyone done this with this rack, or have used...

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

I've had mine since car delivery back in April - 12,000 miles now with quite a few on really rough roads and off road - including crawling over downed trees - and the flaps have stayed put. You only...

Re: Ventilated seats

They will blow whatever temp air is under/around the seat - if the AC is on and the air is cooler then it will feel cooler. If the air is warm you will just be blowing warm air on your butt, but...

Re: pulling a wheel off with QL

Why would you ever start your car when you have it jacked up? That seems like you are asking for trouble in many ways - what a dumb thing to do - but I guess there are lots of stupid people driving...

Re: pulling a wheel off with QL

I had no issues changing a tire on mine and did not disable the system - everything worked just like any other car.

Re: Stupid little thing I noticed washing the WK2

Both my 4-Runner and Acura RDX did the same thing when at the car wash so it is not unique to Jeep. It was kind of annoying, but since I only wash my rigs a couple of times a year it was no big deal...

Re: Turn signal with headlight flash?

No auto on the high beams that I could tell - it is a Larado X loaner from the dealer until my Overland arrives (white/saddle/ACC/V6).

Re: Off-Road Adventure II Package Tires

On the window sticker that I see it says "all season tires" and certainly not off-road tires - those are listed on the off-road adventure package that costs $275 (I'm looking at an Overland sticker).

Re: Rear Hatch size??

It is just 6 feet behind the front seats/center console to the hatch so a 4 x 8 won't fit. It is barely 48" on one angle in the rear so you could get a 4 x 6 in maybe if you were really careful, but...
