Re: What are you paying for service/maintenance? Here is a price list from the dealer

I would do some of those items myself, not to save money but to be the one doing them. Everything else looks fairly priced to me.

Re: Roof rack or no Roof rack?

I took off the cross bars and just have the side rails for a couple of reasons. First, it's easier to clean the roof, and second I have Thule crossbars that can quickly attach to the side rails for...

Re: Real MPG (2010)

Hi jagi,
I agree with Mike.. check out the long term mpg's posted by other 3.7 owners on a mileage tracking site like Fuelly. There's good hard data to back up the numbers for lots of 3.7's. In my...

Re: A/C tapping sound

You probably have the problem fixed by now but I'll add this for anyone else in this situation as it may help. I had a tapping sound coming from the air compressor area also. I eventually figured out...

Re: Quadratec Custom Bezel Mounting Bracket Over Stock $1.99

I had one of these on my last Jeep and it worked very well. The bracket has industry standard mounting holes and will work with most any mounting kit. I just ordered the bracket along with the...

Re: WK Maintenance

Your list it very close to what I did a year ago when I first got my WK. I had a Jeep dealer do the spark plugs but did all the rest myself (fluids, struts). It took me a couple weeks to glean the...

Re: Overhead Mounted Switches!

Re: Noisy Transfer Case

Hey FryGuy,

Re: Vacuum line hub?

Nice picture. I just looked at mine and it is solid all the way around, no slit.

I can't tell if you have a real crack or if it is just a nick in the plastic. Take the hose off and see if it...

Re: Holy MPGs Batman!!!

The poster (Dnizzle80) has a 5.7 hemi and got what I would consider decent mileage for that engine. "You're Limited" echoed similar numbers with his 5.7 and I could say the same from my own...

Re: Air intake

In my experience with my 5.7L putting on a CAI provides a horsepower gain and a throaty sound but will not necessarily increase MPG's. Some have already stated that they have seen a measurable...

Re: Diff Fluids and Transfer case with Amsoil

4 quarts of oil is what it takes to do both front and rear (that's slightly more than you need) and for a QDII with ELS you will also need to also put 4 oz of mopar friction modifier in each diff. ...

Re: Just Ordered-AFE Stage 2 Pro Dry S

Re: Just Ordered-AFE Stage 2 Pro Dry S

Re: Help me pick a CAI
