Re: It's a Jeep so go through puddles

I made sure it was pretty shallow. I wouldn't go through ones that look like it'll swallow a car. Yikes.

Re: Some more pics - fun in the sand...

Those are awesome. I wish I had places like that to take my Jeep. I'd love to try out its capabilities.

It's a Jeep so go through puddles

It's raining like crazy here in Northern California. Apparently there's a lot of areas with standing water. Cars were going around some "puddles" but for me, I decided that since I'm driving a Jeep...

Re: For 5.7L HEMI: what octane rating of gas do you use?

I use the recommended 89 octane. I have used regular without a problem, but I figured I'll just pay the extra and get the gas that the car required.

I finally had a chance to search where the broken piece used to reside. I found it on the other side of the seat controls (see picture). I won't be able to glue it back together without taking the...

It's definitely not the clips on the battery cover. Here are pictures of it.

Re: Anyone know what this part is?

I felt the other side of the plastic guard that holds the electric controls for the seat and it's possible it may have come from there. Not sure though.

Re: Anyone know what this part is?

Thank you for your reply, Steve. I seriously have no idea where it goes. It's hard plastic and one side looks like it has guides and the other side looks like it fits into a socket or hole.

Re: Recall work - anyone get it done?

Just a follow-up. Finally got this recall done on Thursday along with the sun visor recall. I'm glad it's finally done. So it took a few months since I made an appointment to finally get it done.

Re: How do you guys clean your "honey comb"?

After I go to the car wash I go home and get a rag and use my finger inside the rag and go into each hole. Cleans it right up and I'm happy because it's so shiny.

Re: GCs Getting Bigger, Cargo Area Smaller

Your problem with the size was exactly what I found between the 2001 I had and the 2012. In some ways many cars appear to have as much space as the current GC, just not in height.
