Re: My 14 JGC V6 4wd Pulling a truck in the sand

Looks like a busy day pulling people out. The v6 and the 4x4 is a good set up. I pull a 4200lb boat and trailer with mine and laugh as 2wd v8 trucks like those ones spin their wheels at the ramp. How...

Re: Caught the mod bug started with the "Alpine" speakers (pics attached)

I went about 2-3 weeks after upgrading the speakers and decided that the factory sub needed to go. I had an Alpine MRDM500 amp from my Tahoe laying around that needed some good use. I was going to...

Re: Stealthbox in Massachusetts?

I did exactly what Andoskyy is doing. Swapped out the speakers with focal components in the front and coaxials in the rear. Added the stealthbox on a alpine 500 rms amp. Worth every penny. Much...

Re: Deals (and Dealerships) for buying in SoCal

Re: High Beams Flashing with Turn Signals

Do you have a setting for Automatic High Beams in the EVIC? On my 2013 with this setting enabled I can't even flash to pass. This might help until you can get to the dealer.

Re: Driveshaft getting replaced 2013 overland

I asked the same question but the 2014 uses a different part according to the parts escalation manager. They say that is the correct part #. I've tried to look it up with no success as well.

Re: What did you do with your Jeep this weekend?

Took the Jeep on its first road trip from So Cal to Lake Havasu. Couldn't be happier. Pulled our boat about 100 miles from storage and back and forth to the water without any issues from the V6.
