Re: I need head!

We had the head job done and was without our Jeep for over 60 days. Had to raise hell to get a rental and eventually sued and settled out of court and now the Jeep is gone. Ahhhhh...peace at last.

Re: 20 inch WK2 rims prices paid?

Picked ours up for 1k off Ebay. OEM Wheels and tires shipped but no sensors so we had to swap them from our stock wheels. No biggie though.

Re: 3.6 Pentastar Oil Leak

On our way to go pick it up. Dealer said it was covered under warranty and the problem was the rear main seal and they also replaced the oil pan gasket.

Re: Eliminating TPMS warning light

There must no be sensors in the new wheels? If there are sensors in the new wheels it will read them automatically after it is driven a bit.

Re: BF Goodrich Rugged Terrain T/A tires

I had these tires on an 07 GMC Sierra Crew Cab. For an A/T tire these puppies ride awesome and are super quiet! I never had a chance to take them off road.
