Re: 5.7L Hemi on 2011 4x4 Limited

I have a 2011 with the hemi and I love it. It likes it fuel. The only thing I would like is the 8 speed transmission.

Re: When people ask you the price you paid how do you react?

I'm more interested in telling them how much I saved by buying it in the US instead of Canada. I don't really care though, it's no secret.

Re: Overland stereo upgrade and other pics

Thanks for sharing this with us. I've been thinking about doing the same thing. I'd like to know how much of a PITA it is to install yourself.

Re: Another good month for Jeep in August!

Sales are up for Chrysler in Canada as well. If you build good product folks will buy it. Good to see our US car companies getting back to good health.

Re: Towing thread

This is my enclosed bike hauler. Total weight is about 3,000 lbs. I use a load leveler hitch which really gives me a smooth ride. Did about 5,000 kms with it this spring. Sucks the fuel though!

Re: Goodyear Forteras... Any Good in Snow?

Re: Reasonably priced sources for OEM 18" and 20" wheels

Just for Jeeps has free shipping right now.
I did find a better price though through Amazon.com and Steve White Motors.
I purchased the 18" Rugged Off Road Wheel.

Re: Opinions on these wheels?

I prefer #2. I like the unpainted portion to set off the wheel.
You could get the 20s off of eBay.
