Re: RWD vs 4X4

This is exactly where I am, though the only technology my old RWD truck has is a (mechanical) LSD so I mostly rely on the nut behind the wheel. RWD, nothing-special tires, no weight in the back other...

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I think the mopar part people thought might cover it turned out to be the skid plate for the urea tank, which is already included with the factory skid plates on the diesel.

Re: What am I missing...

Re: What am I missing...

Re: Just What Is An Altitude????

I'm not an expert on the topic, but my impression is that used car pricing (both buying and selling) often has more to do with what's actually installed than with the name of the trim level.

Re: 2015 Jeep Renegade

These forums have already gotten ready. There is a "2015+ Jeep BU" section now.

As for the class, it's a compact crossover, a little smaller than the Compass/Patriot.
