Re: It's Official, I Regret My Purchase

Yes, I followed this thread religiously for the longest time and it would be interesting to know the final chapter. I hope things worked out well?

Re: What tires are you running for the winter?

I bought an additional set of 18" wheels and had blizzaks installed. They work incredible in the snow and ice.

You don't want to keep them on the vehicle longer than necessary because they wear...

Re: AWFUL rattle under seat or center console.

It is so difficult to find where rattles come from because of the echos in the vehicle.
My sunglasses always rattle while in the holder and it always sounds like it is coming from somewhere else. I...

Re: what to do with my WK2 stock wheels & tires?

I paid $1100 for a near new set last winter so I could mount winter tires on them. Post them on the for sale section here and you might be surprised.

Re: Tire pressures holding

Mine have held pressure for 6 months now. Never had to add any air. Do the soapy water thing and find the leak(s).

The answer is no. The sensors can detect whether the fob is inside the car or outside. Try locking your keys in. The door locks won't lock. I trust it 99.9% ;-)

Re: Quadradrive over quadralift?

I should think that you would want the 18" wheels with the more larger rubber in the sand. The 20" wheels wouldn't be as good right? Lower profile tires are not good on sand.

Anyhow, QD II is the...

Re: DIY - LOWER Air Dam Trim Removal (not the complete piece)

I almost took one of them off the other day without any tools ;-)
I'm taking my off road whenever I see a chance and the front clearance is just not as good as it has been in previous models.

Re: HEMI: Getting +1.5mpg better with use of Regular Unleaded (87).

Could be worth trying out. There is a clear possibility that the software sets up the engine in a less-than-optimal configuration when using a higher octane.

Re: V8 --- what grade of gas to use?

All modern engines have knock sensors and when the onboard computer detects knocking it will either retard timing and/or richen the air/fuel mixture slightly to correct for the problem.
