Re: Uconnect team introduces all-new features and services for 2016 vehicles

Basically the only reason I get Nav on a car is to make music selection easier from an external device. And it came on the Summit I bought, so yay. I hardly ever use the car's nav system and with...

Re: In channel window vent shades

I installed these on my Dad's F150 a few years back and the rear window shade on the Jeep is the same style as his; the only thing holding the shade up there is double sided tape in the window track....

Re: Limiting/Eliminating glare from interior trim

I hate chrome on the interior of cars. The jeep has way too much. Also, the giant chrome mirrors can reflect light in your eyes as well.

The only solution I have is wrapping the trim with...

Re: 2015 Summit 5.7L Black Wheel Options

It's not the Summit model that gives you the big brakes, it's the fact that you have a V8. So they are wrong. Any wheel made for the 14+ GC should fit every model. Only exception is the SRT which...

Re: Sun Roof Pop Up Bug Screen ??

Re: just picked up my 2015 GC SRT

That's kind of odd, the slots in those pictures aren't really even on the braking surface. Nor are they uniform angles.

The SRT site doesn't mention slotted rotors on Jeep brakes, but it does...

Re: --- New Ride, New Wheels ---

Stock on a Summit. Bumpers, flares, side skirts and exhaust are all different than the rest of the WK2 line.

Re: Best Way 2 Lower Summit's QL?


I've heard of maybe one person lowering it with the dealer tuner. Good luck convincing them to do that.

Re: --- New Ride, New Wheels ---

I'm guessing since it can be scratched fairly easily, hitting it with something like steel wool would brush it pretty nicely.

Re: Lowering / Levelling QL

Yes, just do the opposite of what people are doing to lower the front. Raising it to level out the Jeep most likely won't cause any issues unless you are rolling around in OR2 all the time. AAR...

Re: WK2 rear brake turn LED's installed. VLED V3 Triton with pics

Re: White SRT w/Gold wheels

I like the white/gold look, but I think it'll only look good with a brushed type gold finish and chrome/polished lips. Not stock wheels painted gold.

Re: Brembo Brakes

Bigger brakes will not wear out your bearings faster. Wider, heavier wheels with less backspacing might.
