Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee OFF ROAD (video)

One thing is for sure. The driver has no clue about off road driving. Notice him smashing the passenger rocker when he high centered in his ditch manuver? Not much of an off road test.

Re: Need advice on dealing with dealership

I would contact the service manager and address your points. If you get nowhere then ask to talk to the dealership owner. If that doesn't work then time to lawyer up.

Re: overland 4wd stuck in sand

Agreed. The fog lamps are basically worthless. Since most people drive with them on when there is no fog, I think its more of a fashion statement then practical function.;)

Wheel size has little if any effect on PSI. I highly doubt that over inflating your tires gets you 4 mpg better mileage. My 18" OEM's recommend 33 psi and I run mine at 35 year round. If you over...

Re: What is this metal piece under the radio center stack that gets VERY hot? pic ins

The suction line is not the liquid line. The only part of the whole system where liquid is present is between the condenser and the evaporator. The rest of the system is in a gas state.
