Re: Passenger automatic window switch not working

Test the switch in the passenger door. If you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself, bring it to a shop.

Re: did my dealer switch my 3 seasons for all seasons?

Before going to court, have you confronted them directly? I may have missed it, but didn't see anything about you asking anyone about the tires.

Re: Headlight honeycomb trim is broken

That looks like the center piece is missing. Check your local junk yards. They may have one with a smashed headlight that they can't sell. If so, they will probably give you that missing piece.

Re: How much of these dealer PM items are REALLY necessary???

This always raises the question, does the service advisor know better than the designers of the engine? I don't know. :confused:

Re: Thoughts on my customized 14 GC Limited

I think you did a good job ... even though I am old and love chrome. :)

I would like it even better with the front a rear "JEEP"s removed.

Don't they still put the a/c condenser in front of the radiator?

It's not unusual for noise that sounds like it is coming from a door, to actually be coming from between the fender and cowl.

Re: 1st time poster... Questions about SUV width and garage.

The 95" is typical for an 8' garage door. You lose an inch to the trim. The Grand Cherokee fits with room to spare, without folding the mirrors.

Re: 2014 5.7L Spark Plugs ????

Go to Jeep.com and download the latest owners manual. 100,000 is correct.

Jeep was very slow in getting the manual up to date, seven versions and counting.:)

Re: How many miles on stock brakes?

When is the last time you looked at the pads? If you let them go too long you might be adding rotors when you do the brakes.

Re: How to download Uconnect updates in IE11

It's in the VIP section ... available to contributing members.

That said, after the download you need to run the program and direct it extract onto a blank USB.

Re: Found my old Overland on Autotrader!

It might not have a branded title. It could have passed through a state that doesn't brand titles. Title laundering is all too common. Hopefully any potential buyer will check CarFax.
