Re: Metalic Noise from under Right side on hard accleration

I had a similar problem with my '12 SRT8. I had a metallic grinding/slipping sensation whenever applying torque (acceleration, especially when going uphill or on on ramps). It ended up being a...

Re: SRT Ride Quality and Comfort

The ride in my 2012 is exceptionally comfortable. I use it as a daily driver and am somewhat aggressive with it.

I occasionally take a 5 hr drive (half interstate, half blue road), and I'm as...

Re: DD or no?

Moved to a place with no snow... Rarely even drops below freezing here. Will keep on using the Jeep as a DD.

Re: Pic whoring - Spring 2013 edition

Unique ride; definitely a lot of thought went into the exterior... It would be interesting to see how you treated the interior. Got any pics?

Re: 2012 SRT8 Grinding/Popping Sensation

Well, it was worth a shot... I'm dropping it off next week for repair.

I'll post an update once we get this figured out, in case anyone else runs into the same issue.

2012 SRT8 Grinding/Popping Sensation

My 2012 has developed a grinding/popping sensation, most noticeable when torque is applied. It almost seems to "slip". It is worse on inclines and at low RPM. It seems to be coming from the front...

Re: Who "carries" in their Jeep?

Another good reason to pay attention in traffic! This is even more important if you are on your bike, since most people who don't ride are not looking for motorcycles.

Re: 2014 Overland vs. 2012 SRT

Re: Need some help/advice/suggestions

You have nailed the 2 biggest downsides: 1) going from a "paid for" vehicle to a pricey one, and 2) GAS.

The only other downside is that the OEM tires and brakes wear out around 20k miles.
