Re: Autosource - for determing total loss value

Do your own research of comparables in the area and use NADA, KBB and Black Book if it applies. These companies have called me in the past but they never provide good information. What I mean by that...

Definitely NOT fixed on the 14's. Heard a sloshing sound this evening and discovered water in my battery compartment. Worried about the damage it's caused by just sitting there.

I can build one and show you. There's about $1,200 in markup and another $ 1,000 in holdback. If a dealer is $200 over true cost on an order, it wouldn't be a surprise.

Different banks may offer lease cash in lieu of a lower interest rates. It's somewhat of a wash if you consider a higher interest rate with lease cash vs a lower rate and no lease cash.

Re: 18" Overland wheels

I'm with you. An Overland with OFAII looks terrible by comparison. The 20's look so good on that trim. It really shouldn't be an option on anything above a Limited IMO.

Re: 2011 Jeep GC - lease end decision

Re: When will the new cherokee be available to order from dealer?

Please don't let the Trailhawk be the new Dart R/T. That would be so frustrating. :( That's the trim in the Cherokee that really matters IMO. There's nothing like that in the market currently.
