Re: 275/65/18 Duratracs on Mopar Wheels!

Mileage may suffer as much as 2-3 mpg (at least it does in my 5.7 V8), and yes, road noise is higher than all-seasons for sure, but it's not overwhelming by any means. The GC is fairly quiet to...

Re: Trail Hawk grill?

A little late in the reply, but I'm going through the same thing. I checked with the guys over at justforjeeps and they state that it does match. The paint code for the parts list DM, which is the...

Re: Spare tire solution for Goodyear Duratrac 275/65-18

As noted in the OP, it's a BFG Rugged Terrain T/A P255/70R18 112T ORWL.

Re: Adding Auto-Dim Passenger Side Mirror to Limited

Thanks for the info Jeep_Addicted. That whole mirror housing is pretty spendy. I may take a look at the telematics box first and determine if the leads needed to connect the harness can be added. ...

Just the glass. Harness and housing are stock. Is there a module in the door the harness originates from, or does it originate somewhere further inside? I'm just trying to figure out if the lead for...

I know the mirror I got is auto dimming; the harness plug is on the back same as the driver's side along with the connections for defrost, but there isn't a lead inside the mirror housing to plug it...

Did anyone confirm whether or not the wiring harness for the dimming leads is in the passenger mirror or not? I had to get a replacement mirror glass and the one that I received actually has the...

Re: Spare tire solution for Goodyear Duratrac 275/65-18

I asked a couple of guys in the shop who volunteered that they ran them on their trucks and loved them. They claimed snow performance was great.

Duratracs are branded with the severe winter...

Re: 275/65/18 Duratracs on Mopar Wheels!

The BFG Rugged Terrain T/A P255/70R18 fits in the spare and matches the Duratrac's diameter within .01" if anyone is interested. Just swapped out my spare on Friday and was able to get my compressor...

Re: Spare tire solution for Goodyear Duratrac 275/65-18

The BFG fit perfectly. There's no room for the bins as I suspected. I don't feel they're terribly necessary anyway. The lid closes just a tiny bit snug, but I do keep a set of jumper cables on top...

Re: 275/65/18 Duratracs on Mopar Wheels!

I pulled the trigger last week on a set of Duratracs. The GC looks fantastic with these tires. The guys at my Discount Tire gave me the typical "Not responsible for interference caused damage...

Re: Biggest Tire Size

Whether you're running a Quadra-Lift suspension or not, you may not be able to go any larger than 275/65-18. I've got the QL suspension and just put on a set of Goodyear Duratrac 275/65-18s on my...

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

As mention in some other threads here, these are actually what's coming on high-end vehicles now to suppress road noise.

If that's true, then, personally, I don't really care what the inside of my...

Re: RHR - Voice Control & song names?

This is a rather annoying issue. I too found the info in the owners manual stating "synced" AUX devices would have this capability. The how and which devices seems to be left as a mystery. Maybe...
