Re: Jeep Navigation System Fail

Bungendore,

Thanks for the info. I've contacted Narelle and have started the process with the Office of Fair Trading.

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

Glenn,

I originally had mine at 40psi. The ride was harsh and it was abit noisey.
I've since reduced it to 36psi and the ride is alot more comfortable.

Re: Putco LED conversion list

Do the PUTCO LED brakelights work like dual filament globes?
i.e. Do they get brighter as you put your foot on the brake or are they the same intensity regardless if your foot is on the brake or not.
