Re: 2015 Jeep Cherokee KL - Features, Options and Pricing

Re: Remote Fuel Door

NPrunner - Did they identify which wiring harness had corrosion. Also, any idea where the harness is located. Wonder what they did to keep it from happening again.

Really? Is this about the Grand Cherokee? Because the owners manual for the 2014 Cherokee says neither the 4 or 6 cylinder engines are E-85 compatible. Warnings and repair instructions are provided.

Re: Blue Ox Baseplate for Trailhawk
