Re: What Genius Engineer @ jeep decide to cut 1" off the length of the receiver tube?

Our hitches in the US with tow package are ClassIV. If I am to believe the rating agencies, our hitches exceed the towing capacity of the vehicle itself. So I don't see it as a safety issue. I use...

Re: 2011 Alpine simple make over

Re: 2011 Alpine simple make over

But how does it sound? Awesome writeup!

Btw, i know everyone perceives sound different. But we should all try to achieve a flat response and let the producers decide how we should hear a track.

Re: From the horses mouth on the Harman Kardon System

Re: 14.32.2 UConnect US Only

yes, even if you have the file and your vehicle is not a MY15, don't bother installing it. The update will check for your MY and if it is not a MY15 then it will abort the upgrade.

nope, I've noticed the same thing. the backup camera from my MY11 was better. Now it looks like they bumped up the brightness too high and didn't adjust for contrast.
