Re: My WK2 just rolled over 20k miles...my thoughts

Must be nice. I have just over 10,000 mile on my 2011. I've never gotten over 16 MPG and typically get about 14 MPG with my Hemi? I'm very light footed, try to maintain ECO, and very rarely let it...

Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

Seems low for 1 year, considering they want $25 for 5 months? I haven't heard anything lower than $70/year.

Either way, I'll let mine expire and see if they call. If the do, I may ask for a...

Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

I was hoping to avoid the reactivation fee game, but the the whole thing is a game. So yeah, I'll let it expire today and let the pricing games begin. :slapfight:

Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

Re: Collision warning saved my life, and possibly time in Jail!

If the cruise is on, the GC brakes will be applied, otherwise only audio & visual indicators are used. :D

Re: Mile Indicator When Fuel Low

After my fuel fell below 3 gal., the DTE quit working. Don't know if this was a fluke because of the starting/stopping in town and if I was on the highway it would keep displaying the DTE?

Re: Limited with luxury vs Overland

The Overland has a different grill.

The front lower air-foil (?) is removable.

The Quadra-Lift alone is worth the extra $1K.

Re: air suspension height

I believe Sport mode/height is at park entry/exit height. It is also stiffer. Unfortunately, you will feel bumps more, since it is stiffer.

Re: How to Transform a Regular Overland into a Trail Rated Overland

If all he wants is the bling, go to Quadratec or Jeep and buy the badge.

If he wants to take it off road, he needs to spend some money.

Re: Thinking about getting a used WK2, what does this tell you?(service records)

Why go used with all the deals on new ones. A new one has all updates that have been done during the last year (RER vs RHR, firmware, etc). And better interest rates on new.
