Re: What Genius Engineer @ jeep decide to cut 1" off the length of the receiver tube?

I guess my point is that I currently have a receiver rated as Class IV by the manufacturer on my truck. Shorter/longer....whatever. It has been certified for the capacity. I would MUCH rather go to...

Re: 275/65/18 Duratracs on Mopar Wheels!

I can't directly answer, but the tire I went with (Mich AT/2) also came in 275/65/18 in either a P or LT. I went with the P, as the load carrying capacity of the Jeep didn't warrant the extra ...

Re: Will 1" larger tires fit a 2012 Hemi Laredo?

I also have a '14 diesel Limited with Quadra-Lift.

I have 275/65/18 Mich AT2's on mind - fit great even in "entry/exit" mode

Re: exceptable transmition temp's towing

Mine get to 195-205 when towing pretty fast. I have a bunch of toys so I tow between 1000-5500lbs often. Seems to get up to that temp and stabilize.

I've noticed mine needs a few min after being shut off to give a full reading. If I check it immediately it's low.

Light came on during a sunny drive home church.

I did add new def (2.5g) on Friday and filled up with diesel Saturday.

Re: Grand Cherokee Diesel Towing Test

I don't get how they got 15mpg running WFO the whole way up. I'd think (based on what my instant mpg shows that it would be lower).
