Re: Max hp for the hemi

Probably because the Jeep is the better choice??? And, what's wrong with wanting more performance out of a given engine?

By the way, Jeep just displaced Ford as the most reliable American...

Re: What would you do? WK2 lease end keep or not?

That's just a case of needing to be rubbed out. Probably a simple fix.

Question Re: All day Sunday Cleaning

Is this really the sequence you are using? If so, your polish application is just removing the wax that you applied.

Re: To get another Grand Cherokee or Wrangler Unlimited??

Drive both, and see if you can put up with the crudeness of even a new Wrangler. Fun factor, yes, but unless you really want to get into the off-road stuff where it will easily outshine a GC, there...

Re: Hairline crack found on inner SRT Replica

Even stock wheels, especially light ones, crack consistently when hiting a pot hole. Short, stiff sidewalls and lighter, less stiff materials combine to form a possible problem. I have two Porsche...

Re: 5.7 Hemi First Oil Change 7+ Quarts???

Agreed, go by the specs at 7 quarts and don't overfill. Just remember where the level is indicated with a fresh fill, and use that as your guide.

Re: New transmission to have 9 speeds?

Why don't they just engineer a CVT that can take the torque and be done with it. All those shift points would be annoying if felt, as posted above for the Audi.

Re: Chrome door molding....

Look at the pics of the new SRT8 at the New York show. It's red, not black, but there's no rub rail on it, and it looks like the original concept vehicle without them.

Re: Rust on exhaust. Normal?

The welds and added parts, such as hangers, aren't stainless, so rust will exist. Besides, "stainless" will get a rust coating eventually also, so don't worry about that.

Re: Looking for advice on purchasing a new Jeep

In my opinion, the mileage difference between the V8 and V6 is negligible, so go with the added power of the Hemi and get the other benefits. Also, I wouldn't buy a vehicle out of your own lease to...
