Re: So I got my '15 KL Trailhawk

Do you have a 4 cyl or V6 as the i think the 4 cyl only comes with a 4.08 rear end gear and the V6 has a 3.51 or 3.21 gear which will run at a lower rpm than the 4 cyl do.

My 14 TH has none of the 5 issues in auto or sports mode and its a late build ( 6 / 14). THE ONLY THING I DONT LIKE IS THE EARLY SHIFTING IN AUTO MODE.

Re: Custom Tune for Intune

Try taking out the air filter and make a 0/60 pass as this will lean the rich stock tune down a bit. In race trim my 2012 ran a 4.3 0/60 with the air filter out and stock tune with 98 octane.

Re: Cherokee Trailhawk 3.2 1/8 mile Test Results.

Our 1/4 mile track is 13 ft up hill and they run .25 slower in the 1/8 mile there than our track does so we never go there to run the 1/4 mile. Our flat 1/4 mile track is 200 miles away.
