Re: Happy with my HEMI choice!

Re: Continental CrossContact LX20 265/50R20

It does look like a very nice tire from the specs, etc. The one issue with the comparison on TireRack is that the chart only includes tires that they offer...no Nitto, etc., which would be nice to be...

Re: 5 Years of Free SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link on 2015 Jeeps

They will turn it on for about two weeks every couple of months and usually follow that up with an offer to renew in the mail.

Re: Attention JGC Overland or Summit owners....

I use it daily when I pull into the driveway. It makes it easier for my wife to get in the vehicle. I also push that button when I go into many parking garages to get a little more headroom "comfort".

Re: Ordering 2015 Summit Diesel, have ?'s

Spare is full size in diameter but a different tire than the four corners under "sunny day" use. That's so it can fit under the cover in the cargo area. It's slightly narrower and on an 18" steel...

Re: "nav ready???"

It sounds like your Jeep has the 8.4A (RA3) sound system. It's "NAV" ready in that your dealer (for about a $500 fee) can turn on the Navigation capability. In other words, NAV capability is inherent...

Re: Towed with my '14 JGC V8 (question inside)

A brake controller is only required if you are using electric brakes on a trailer. The uhaul trailer you show has surge/inertial brakes so a brake controller in your JGC isn't needed.
