Re: New overland 4x4 should something be covering these wires underneath?

I think you are being overly critical; I don't see much to be concerned about. Take a peak at some of the pickups on the road and you can usually see fuel lines and wiring harnesses in plain sight....

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

You have me intrigued with the "74," but all I want to know is if the heated and cooled cup holders are not going to make it on the MY '14! I have been touting that feature of my future Overland to...

Re: new projectors!

The quality of FX-Rs compared to minis is far superior. And they just need to try harder to get them to fit. I have FX-Rs mounted in my housings...I just haven't gotten around to doing the shroud. I...

Re: Steering wheel removal

I would have rather used a puller, but with the layout on the '08+ it doesn't look like your typical steering wheel puller would work. A large jaw type puller would probably get the job done, and...
