Re: Blue Ox Baseplate for Trailhawk

Blue Ox update per my dealer: The solution for TrailHawk is, BUY A DIFFERENT TOW BAR. Rather than mount the baseplate tabs closer together on the Jeep, Blue Ox has created a towbar with longer arms....

With a Wrangler Unlimited parked with a dog inside, to keep from overheating, a simple solution is to remove a roof panel. But the opening is too large to assure the dog remains inside (tying or...

Any snow chains restrictions on Wranglers?

Are there any issues with buying and using snow chains on stock Rubicon tires? On any other Wrangler model+tire combos? With larger tires such as 35s?

Seems like a silly question, but I got...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I've had flipper glass (or equivalent) my entire life -- at least one car had it, usually an SUV or station wagon. It's amazingly convenient.

So it is a huge insult to customers and damaging to...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

My cynical hunch is, the 2014 models will sell on their general "newness" and notable new features, so old feature Flipper was removed to increase profit, AND to have a "new" feature to add for 2015...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

My guess is, removable top and removable doors. They'll call it the "Jeep" model.

My HOPE is they are inspired by all the competitors and offer rear door flip-up glass. They could call it Flipper.

Re: How Long for Rebates/Incentives on the 14's?

My dealer thinks incentives will be to clear out 2013 units. The only other reason would be if there seems to be a competitive disadvantage, which is why Fall incentives happen -- new models roll out...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes
