Re: Snow Rims and Tires

CHeck your spare tire size, pretty sure with the Hemi engine you have to use an 18" rim to clear brakes etc. my spare is an 18" rim and that is what I will be purchasing next week.

Re: K&N Series 63 intake impressions

I put an Airaid Jr kit on my 2007 Overland Hemi and loved it. Only louder when I got into it and sounded great. Wish I could do the same for my 2011 Hemi, but seems none are available :(

Re: 2014 Painted Wheel Flares on my 2011

Dealer said that the plugs or a faulty coil was likely sending an intermittent 'spike' and that was telling the PCM to activate the 'shut down' relay. Foil seems to have done the trick!
