Re: afe pro dry filter

Thanks Roadkill, I'll give that a try and see if that makes any difference. I did disconnect the hose which helps a little.

Re: Almost one year of ownership

Unless something changed late this week, they're not available in 265/50/20 yet. I called couple tire dealers to get a quote and neither of them could provide one yet.

Re: Almost one year of ownership

What do you think of the terra grapplers? Did you go stock size? Do you have 18's or 20's? How many miles have you put on them? I put those on my last truck and are my first choice for the jeep....

Re: Did you get extended warranty for you 3.0 diesel

2nd this...call Bob and even ask if he can do better than the quote on the Web site. He gave me another $100 off when I bought mine, couldn't be happier with them.

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

Ok, under direct sun light mine isn't as noticeable but at the dealer under the florescent lights you could really see it on the hood. So if the clay bar helps I may have to do that in the spring.

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

Thanks, that makes me feel a little better. Same vehicle, pretty much same midwest fuel, so sounds like I'm average. Hopefully it just gets better with more miles and different blends in the summer.
