Re: SEMA - Slammed Summit

Re: Where do you find the trigger for aftermarket driving light relay

Trigger? I think you're talking about the accessory 12v source - powers on when the key is on the ON position.

If so, the one I tapped into is the cigarette lighter inside the dash cubby. Pull the...

Re: 2012 jgc info!

Acceleration issue? Our 12 has some odd acceleration characteristics that we've attributed to the DBW system and the ECU.

Re: Downsides to LockPick

Just do NOT buy from seller 12volt... something. He totally f'd me over and I had to raise a dispute with ebay and paypal. But yes, eBay is the cheapest place you'll find them.

2012 3.6 Transmission Weirdness

It appears that most of the tranny issues here are related to the Hemi WK2's, and I haven't seen many for the Pentastar WK2's.

I went with 35% on the front windows (not windshield) and 35% over the factory tint. Should have gone 20% in the front for a better match, but at least I'm "legal".

Re: New WK2 Appearance Package Coming soon?

Looks like they added the lower valance from an FJ Cruiser.. The rest of the 'look' (sans wheels) can easily be achieved with some plasti-dip.
