Re: LED Switchbacks for 2014 Laredo

There's really not much to load resistors.
The key is to have the finned aluminum housing to ensure heat dissipation.

Here's some 25watt units (the max wattage of a 7443 bulb is 25watt):...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Cabin Filter

Did they change the design of the glove box for 2014?

Re: How long should the negative cable be disconnected

FYI...
The 'idle for 2 hours thing' is only because then their techs can walk away from the vehicle and not monitor it.

Re: How long should the negative cable be disconnected

Question...
Why disconnect the battery cable for a radio reset?
Just locate the radio fuse (or fuses) and pull them for a couple minutes.

Re: E85 can I do anything to improve fuel mileage?

LOL, the money isn't going into the pockets of American farmers.

Agreed!
I lock the hitch into the receiver and when I use the convert-a-ball system I always keep the hitch balls inside the truck if I'm not towing a trailer.

I keep everything locked up.... ...

Re: Rust resistant hitch receiver & tow ball?

And Convert-a-ball makes a nice stainless ball system.

They have 2 versions:
1 has the 1-7/8" and 2" balls, the other has 3 balls and a bigger shank.
(Yeah, I know but get your minds out of the...

Re: Black Wheels

I have the Laredo X with the 18" rims.
I went with the OEM size of 265/60R18.
According to the onboard GPS my speedo is still 'dead nuts' accurate.
