Re: Overland Seats Uncomfortable

You have never sat in the front seats of a new Mercedes S class or driven one.
Seats are awful until they break in which can take as long as a year.

Re: Drove a 2014 Toyota Highlander today, my thoughts vs the WK2

If you want to see the Wagoneer you better hope FCA sells lots of little Jeeps like the Renegade. 2015 Tahoe and Yukon ahave a far superior V8 to Chrysler's POS even 6.4l and are great rides.

Re: 2015 Jeep Renegade

Over 8" on the Trailhawk model I believe. Jeep needs to sell a boatload of vehicles like this so it can continue to sell Wranglers with live axles and frames and vehicles as large as WK2 or larger.

Re: Replacing strut (QD2)

Depending on the mileage on your WK2 shocks and struts should be replaced in pairs. You will also need an alignment and you probably just didnt bend the rear shock.
