Yes. The damage amounted to close to 70% of the value of the Jeep so they totalled it out. The pix that I took really don't do it justice. The hail actually dented it deep enough that it cracked the...

It worked out in my favor. Insurance gave me $11900 for the old jeep so I was able to get the WK that I wanted in the first place. The only downside was having to strip the $6000 worth of a/v...

Re: installed pioneer avh-p8400bh

The nice thing about the 8400 is if you have an iphone 4s you can use the app mode and use turn by turn nav from your phone on the screen of the 8400. No need to pay the extra for a stand alone nav...

Re: Died out of nowhere.

Yeah I get this same issue on occasion finally it kicked the CEL and it was the EGR code. I haven't been able to replace the EGR valve yet but my 4.7 liter 05 does the same thing.
