Re: Please Help Getting Weak looking at 4Runners :(

I traded my 2005 (4th Gen) 4Runner for a 2012 WK2 Overland, which I then traded for a 2015 Overland.

The current 4Runner is a joke IMHO. Toyota decided to "dumb down" the 5th Generation 4Runner...

Re: WK2 Grand Cherokee 3.6 & 5.7 owners, RIPP Superchargers has a solution for you!

Re: Sun Roof Pop Up Bug Screen ??

Re: Heat rejection of Pano Sunroof

Re: Hard driver's seat

Well I love the seats on my 2015 Overland.

I don't feel they are too hard at all. I'm 6'1" @ 220 lbs. and that might have something to do with it.

Re: V8s- Which gas do you use?

You should double check that. The 5.7 HEMI manual recommends 89 octane. Some folks seem to have received the SRT manual by mistake, which is where the confusion comes from.
