Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

My rear spoiler is the source of a creak that usually happens when the van is hooked up. Rough roads too seem to trigger it.

Re: The Towing thread

It is a much quicker job than I imagined to take the corners off.

Just a grinder disc on a 100mm angle grinder.
Not difficult at all....
