Re: Mopar Vehicle Protection?

Tire and wheel is the same for the SRT and non-SRT vehicles. Around $275.

$250? The tire alone is $400 and the wheel is $1500.

Re: Mopar Vehicle Protection?

I apologize, the $2300 was for non-SRT Jeeps. The SRT surcharge is $450, making it $2750.

Re: Hows this deal? Please advise

3% under invoice at a minimum? That's not common at all, and the only case I've heard of getting more than 3% involved a group buy of nearly 20 vehicles.

Re: Getting ready to purchase JGC SRT, advice please.

While I agree with you, what would you consider "abuse" of an SRT? I thought they were intended to be driven hard with the understanding that you'd pay for it in tires and brakes.

Re: Slightly embarrasing oil filter question

My pleasure and make sure you have the correct filter. They changed them in 2014 to help address the lifter tapping problems in the earlier version of the engine. Correct version ends in "AB".
