Re: Choosing which recalls to apply

What dealer have you had the best luck with in the area? Did your current SRT come from Bob Allen.

Re: Nitto 420's in the snow

Speaking of snow in KY, we had 8" in Fayette on Monday...how were things a little south? Have you had the 2014 SRT out in the snow?

Re: Take a pic of your ride right now!!!

So rain caused that on a stock wk hood? Or had the hood had paint work done recently? Sorry to see that happen either way.:(

Re: 2011 WK2 Strange Squeaking after Offroading

How does it sound at slow speeds over a speed bump? Sounds like the same noise I hear on rides that get upgraded from rubber to polyurethane bushings. Sway bar bushings for example.

Extremely happy with the condition of the car. If you can find a garage kept car in the southwest, they seem to be a good buy. A vehicle of similar age in the rust belt would be rusted out. We've...
