Re: Off-Road Adventure II Package Tires

As a follow-up....I swapped out the garbage tires at about 43K miles for the LTX AT/2s. I got a little discount, but the new tires still weren't cheap. I'm at about 65K miles now, and the tread...

Re: Anybody Considering LR4?

The sticker on the LR4 was 12k more than my Jeep. I certainly don't need a 3rd row of seats now, but if Jeep doesn't come out with a 3rd row option, I may have to look at the LR4 for my wife. Ugh.

Doesn't the rear height get affected the most with load leveling/ trailer sway stabilization? Could you be parking on uneven surfaces?

You're right. I can see it better on my iPad. Looks like a darker version of this years blackberry pearl. This one just looks a little less nasty - but still not my thing.

Dumping the Dark Charcoal? It's what I've got, and I'm a huge fan.

Re: Things Gone Wrong Poll

In California, the crazies here put some ethanol in all fuel from my understanding...but it's not 20%...I think it's like 10%.

Is anybody noticing a huge difference between 89 and 87 octane?
