Re: towing with my hemi

I once put 1000 pounds of dirt in the back of my grand cherokee hemi. 25 40lb bags. Didn't even feel like it was back there besides the rear sagging a little bit.

Happy with fuel mileage

I took my 2008 Grand Cherokee hemi on a 900 mile round trip the past week and I am happy with the overall average fuel mileage. Me and the wife, with a full cargo load. I'm estimating total vehicle...

Re: P1521 - very important please look in here

Keep in mind that the engine oil pressure may be low, oil pressure switch may be faulty, or the oil temperature sensor may not be working correctly. Since the main crank bearings make the oil...

Re: Tried to cure hemi tick with seafoam. No luck.

I did an oil change the other day at work. I had amsoil 5w20 in the engine. I drained it cold and the oil seemed very thin. The oil only had about 1000 miles on it. I pumped in the 5w20 that comes...

Re: Muffler suggestions?

A Magnaflow 12589 should be a good fit.

Tried to cure hemi tick with seafoam. No luck.

I was a little skeptical trying this out. I put seafoam in the crankcase of my 08 Hemi. I put 250 miles on it this weekend and it didn't do a single thing for this Hemi tick. Actually it seems like...

Re: Jeep 5.7L vs 4.7L

I was due for an oil change anyways. I switched from conventional oil to amsoil hoping it would help. It is only on the drivers side. There is no exhaust leak. MDS works great. I did notice when I am...

Re: Jeep 5.7L vs 4.7L

I tried the seafoam a few months ago. Left it in for about 50 miles then changed the oil to Amsoil. No change in ticking.

Re: Approaching 90K...when to throw in the towel?

I just bought my 2008 Limited in December. The hemi tick drives me nuts. Enough to make me want to get rid of it. But, I decided to put an exhaust on so I don't hear it. Other than the tick it is a...

Re: Buying 07 GC overland What should I lookout for?

The 2008 has the mygig radio. Much better navigation/entertainment unit than the previous years. That's one of the main reasons I only searched for 2008 and above GC.

Re: used k&n from amazon came new in box!

A filter may net some increase but I cleaned the throttle body around the same time. I bought the jeep used at 37k miles and it looked like it was never cleaned. So maybe the cleaning helped out a...

Re: used k&n from amazon came new in box!

The increase was from the filter. My driving style stayed the same, ambient temp is the same. 50 miles after I put the filter in it slowly went up to 13. Keep in mind the old filter was very...

used k&n from amazon came new in box!

I bought a used k&n drop in filter from Amazon warehouse deals for $21 the other week. I took a chance with a used filter even though the condition said used-like new. When it arrived at the house it...

Re: Fuel mileage impressions

MPG has not been good in the city due to remote start for 10 minutes then driving 5 miles to work. I think the dealer put 5w-30 oil in the Jeep when I bought it. The MDS would hardly turn on. A few...

Re: Remote start Dealer Programming

The programming is probably the labor to install the kit. They are not plug and play. You have to install the antenna, module, harness, hood switch, then program the module to the vehicle. You can...
