Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

Re: New Michelin Tire

I'm seriously looking at the Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs. I had the Wranglers on my 86 4Runner and they performed very well on and off the road and in the snow. Got caught in a blizzard between...

Re: Roof rack Cross Bar Mounting Process

I have noticed no real noise from the OEM racks, even with the sunroof opened, when they are properly installed with the rubber insert also installed.

Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

From what has been posted in the Map Update thread, the software is just 14.25.5, included for those who don't keep their systems updated through UConnect.

Re: 4Runner Comparison

I had both an 86 and a 95 4Runner, both SR5's. The interior of the 86 was nicer than the one in the 95. The 86 had the 4 cylinder with a manual 5 speed and the 95 a six with the automatic. The six...

Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

I know that on one of the earlier UConnect updates, I had to install it twice to get it to work properly.

Re: Eco Mode questions + couple others

On my old Tahoe, there was a button on the tip of the column shifter for tow mode. The change seemed to be similar to the changes that the Jeep does when sport mode is engaged, so I would think that...

Re: Brand new Summit & Cruise quits

The system is electronic, but the response is noted through the mechanics of the engine and drivetrain. When you push the button, there is a bit (not much, but a bit) of a delay before the speed...

Re: UConnect Voice Command Problem

Pushing Volume and Tune resets the radio but doesn't destroy any data. I had to use it once on my trip to Oregon when I suddenly lost the memory in the seats and mirrors. After the reset, everything...

Re: Keyless Ignition/Key Fob Question

Re: Dealer says no one wants off road package

The first dealer I went to had the attitude that no one needed or wanted the trail rated versions. He was upset when he found that I had bought a trail rated version from another dealer.
