Re: USA Today - Test Drive: New diesel Cherokee not quite Grand

It's kinda like saying you can go from point A to point B on either a moped or a Harley. Both will get you there, but one definitely has more power.

Re: Recommended Tire Pressure

I run at recommended (door jam) pressure or 1 more lb. in 3 seasons. In winter I run 2 - 3 pounds over so they don't get too low during 0F to 32F (or below) temperatures.
