Re: Pedals not aligned with seat and steering wheel

Re: Pedals not aligned with seat and steering wheel

Add me to that list of people who thinks the same. I hate it! I have to sit a bit more to the left of the seat to be comfortable.

Re: "Soft" windshield 2014 Limited

I agree. Chips very easily.

Does it have to do with it being lighter? I mean, are the new windshields lighter than the ones made several years ago? My old ZJ had its windshield replaced only...

Re: Should my 2012 w/ 23k on it need rotors??

If it is shuddering when braking, the rotors are probably warped. Take them to a auto parts store and get them machined assuming they are in the allowed thickness. It will cost you $10 per rotor.

Re: How to kill the engine...

Tried this last night on my 2012. No worky. I even put the shifter in neutral and tried it. All I saw was "Vehicle not in Park" message as the Jeep was rolling at 8-10 mph in front of my house.
