Re: Detailing

I've never paid anyone else to detail any car of mine - no one would do as good a job nor care as much about my vehicle as I. Over many years of trial and error I've found the best products and...

Re: Trail Rated

It's a lot more than just the skid plates that are required to get the Trail Rated badge - when you order either ORA package on a Limited you get the same components as in the Overland. I got the ORA...

Re: Felt Wheelwell Liners removeable?

Bahahaha! Good one, Bill! I'd do that to mine, but I used up all my FlexSeal on my screen doors. Can't see out of them now, either. :D

Re: Felt Wheelwell Liners removeable?

I've thought of removing mine - those things are like huge sponges; when it rains they hold water & then they slowly discharge it all in my garage.

Re: Red colored Wrangler a cop magnet?

Exactly. It's simply urban legend that cops look for "fast-colored cars", or high-$$ cars - all they care about is which ones are speeding or violating other laws. If you're in a bright red...

Re: Used 2013 vs New 14 or 15

Definitely look for a used '14 over a '13 - 8 speed tranny starting with the '14s is great! Better yet, just do the Houston deal at 5.5% under invoice and pick up a brand new '15 GC Limited V6 for...

Re: Clay bar vs Clay cloth vs Clay pad

Agree with above that clay bar is all you need. I use Zaino clay bars; they're the best I've found - but any high-quality clay produced for auto detailing will be fine as well (e.g.; Mother's). The...

I'd try loading the software one more time, and assuming it functions properly thereafter then immediately do a hard reset.

Absolutely - as long as you don't do that with the spark plug wires. I did once about 15 years ago while working on an engine; still can't count past 34 to this day.
