Going from 20s to 18s

If I switch my 20s and 18s on my limited and go with the OEM size for those that come with 18s, do I need to worry about anything like speedometer calibration? Does a GC with 18s drive a lot...

Backup camera out of place?

Just today I noticed an issue with my 2014 backup camera. The aim is off and it is showing the bumper and less of what's behind. This also skewed the angle and is messing me up when backing into...

Deal on leftover 2014?

I found a dealer with a leftover 2014 that has 2000 miles on it but hasn't been titled (sounds like a demo or similar situation.) It is a Limited 4x4 with the Lux II package. They are selling it...

Re: Quadra-Drive II vs Quadra-Track II

Re: Comparison and feedback on 18" vs 20" wheels

I have the 20s and hate how easy they are to scuff. Even scuffed them on a deep pothole once. I also dislike the tires. The AT ones I'm accustomed to from my 05 were far better in snow.

Re: Lifetime extended warranties, do they make sense?

I've been considering this myself. I'd go lifetime because 100k in seven years isn't many miles to me. (Got mine in late Feb 2013 and went over 20k today.)

The 2005 I traded in was costly after I...
