Re: Rear LED brake/turn signals

This will most likely be addressed either in the refresh or the next generation. Meanwhile VLEDs makes a kit that works on the WK2.

Re: New CAT Converter - Failed Emission's/State Inspection

How much have you driven your vehicle since the new CAT was installed. How did they test your emissions -- with just the ODB plugin?

Re: Summit With Limited Or Overland Lower Fascias?

If the Summit is not going to be offered with the off road goodies, then give the Overland buyers an...

Re: Summit With Limited Or Overland Lower Fascias?

Yeah, silly marketing. At least prior to the MY14, you could have both the luxury AND the capability. Now, they are forcing you to compromise slightly one way or another.

Re: new rock lights installed

Nice and bright. Are these the KC? You have your rocker extra illuminated. From experience, you probably should place a pod in each of the wheel wells and one near the center of the vehicle too.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

I wouldn't mind that if they dash-mounted it, like they did in the RAM. It really saves zero space if they leave it on the center console.
