Re: Locked keys in car tonight

My jeep says the keys left anytime the driver or passanger door is opened (even if the passenger does not have a key). Typically it does not stop until manually acknowledged... It's very annoying.

Re: Limited grille v. Overland grille - what's the difference?

I know I've seen it before but can't find it now, does someone have the summit grill part number handy.
