Re: 10k miles!

Benefits of working mostly from home. And when I have to go to the office, it's only 20 miles round trip. It usually takes me 6-7 weeks to fill up. No thanks to democrats or republicans.

10k miles!

1yr and 10k miles! 6k miles are on very long trips and the GC is performing as I hope it would. Great gas mileage too.

Re: Cruise Control

I don't have the adaptive CC and was going 75. I also have the V6. On the uphills, nothing overly steep, it would tend to go down to 73 but as I mentioned, it wouldn't floor it unlike my other...

Re: volant or k&n intake for wk2 hemi?

Re: Problem staring engine

Bad gas? Except for that one time, it seems like the gas is working just fine.

Speaking of gas, I finally filled up for the first time. I tell you, this jeep is cursed. Cost was $66.66.
