Re: power steering

Yes, sort of. Its Hydro electric. It uses an electric pump instead of a pulley on the engine to pressurize the power steering system. If you open your hood and look straight down the front of the...

Re: '14 - Roll call for MPG figures

Wow, I was getting (and still am) 23mpg at 70 on the highway after 1000 miles in my 4x4 v6 '12. Maybe the 8 speed takes longer to adjust to your driving.

Re: New information displays in 2014 EVIC?

I was hoping they would include an Altimeter in the dash as well as an artificial horizon. That would stand out from all the other Mopars with the similar dash!

Re: "2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee probed for fire risk"

Re: New SUV turned Minivan??

"four-wheel-drive lock for those moments when the driver is in WTF mode and wants to rip apart the bumper covers by going off-road."

Re: Burning Smell when heater is on

I crawled under again today and did not see any labels (or their crispy remains) on the exhaust. I hope it goes away soon. I find myself inventing reasons just to take it for a drive. :-)

Unhappy Burning Smell when heater is on

Re: What all do I need to add factory hitch?

I opted for the Mopar OEM hitch myself. They didn't have a Jeep with one from the factory local when I purchased mine so I had them install one on a Jeep they had on the lot. It looks great, like I...

Re: nice little review of the 2012 WK2

Re: 3.6 Pentastar made in Michigan and Mexico

Mexico V6 here. 20 years ago I would have scoffed at a Mexican engine. With today's quality inspections I trust it as much as one made in the USA. If the engine had an assembled in China sticker...

Re: Getting a Laredo E and need some help

I did the radio swap for $500. It takes a few minutes to install. The tough part is finding the right radio. I was lucky to find one that was pulled from a 2012 Laredo X.

Re: I'm in love...with my JGC

Conversely I'm a bit wide and find the Jeep seats to be a perfect fit. I wonder if the seat designer had the enlarging American waistline in mind when they sized them.

Re: Automatic Temperature Swap

Your a braver man than I. $100 and 10 minutes of labor will answer this question quickly. At the moment I have neither.

Re: thinking of having dealer add 430N

I added the non camera no Nav 430 RBZ and installed it myself (10 min) in my Laredo. I purchased the unit on Ebay for $500. It was taken out of 2012 Grand Cherokee.

Re: 2012 Cherokee HVAC upgrade

Dealer willing and knowledgeable? The radio/hvac upgrade will be on my own. I will have to "inquire" about adding the 430 RBZ to the vin after I'm done the install. Toughest part will be prying...

Re: 2012 Cherokee HVAC upgrade

Ahh. I found the ATC panel on several mopar parts sites for $110. I figured the control logic and PC boards were in the ATC unit an they used the same wiring harness.
