Build & Price Question

On an Overland, is the 19 Speaker Harman Kardon system really only available if you choose the tan interior? Or is this a Build & Price flaw?

Re: HEMI "Tick" ?

This. I have 56,000 miles on my 2007 XK with the HEMI. It has "ticked" from day one. It is part of the sound of the engine when at idle. Nothing to be concerned with.

Re: new rock lights installed

Nice and bright. Are these the KC? You have your rocker extra illuminated. From experience, you probably should place a pod in each of the wheel wells and one near the center of the vehicle too.
