Re: 87 or 89 Octane in Hemi?

This statement is true for using gasoline with an octane rating higher than an engine is designed for. If you use lower than the recommended octane both power and mileage will be adversely affected....

Re: V-6 or V-8, regrets?

I don't understand this statement. I can easily afford either engine and I still had to decide which one I preferred. I chose the V-6.

Re: V-6 or V-8, regrets?

It doesn't. The Wrangler has 5 fewer horsepower than the GC.

It resets when you manually reset it where it says "Reset" on the EVIC.

Re: EVIC Gas Mileage Accuracy

My V6 Laredo X has about 11,000 miles on it. The EVIC gas mileage display has been pretty consistently optimistic by 1 1/2 to 2 mpg, similar to yours. For instance it will show 22 mpg at a fill-up...

Re: shark fin guys - can anyone speak to reception after install?

Re: shark fin guys - can anyone speak to reception after install?

In theory it does have something to do with satellite as it covers the installed satellite antenna and interposes metallic parts. I have noticed no degradation there though nor any on AM or FM.

Re: I see a lot of jeeps rocking the tailgate sticker

There would seem to be no point to the sticker if it is removed during dealer prep. It points out the location of the buttons. Wouldn't that be for the benefit of the owner?

Because of the geometry of the satellite orbits, elevation errors tend to be larger than horizontal position errors.

Re: Quadra Drive II Available on V6

QDII has a limited slip differential at the rear. QTII relies on brakes for traction control at both ends.

Re: Oil change at 3,500 miles??
