Re: Interesting visit to the DMV today ...

It's a result of politicians afraid to use the "Tax" word. Instead they introduce more "Fees".

For me, the Automatic Highbeam is one of the best features of the LED/HID lights. Which you won't get with Aftermarket.

Re: Best sd card for my new 2015 Summit?

I have 64GB SD and USB and they both work fine.
Make sure the USB stick is FAT32 and if you do have to format it on Windows it won't let you use FAT32 on large drives. You need a 3rd party tool. ...

Re: How much should i be paying?

I got 4% below invoice locally on both my GC's without haggling.

Seriously consider Advanced Tech Group.

Re: $50k+ is a lot of money for a new vehicle...

You said it right above.

You said I can pay $50K cash with 1/11 of our take home pay.

The math is really tricky here.

11 * $50K = $550K TAKE HOME PAY.

Take home means, after taxes.

Re: First Issue - No Sound

I doubt it will work, but I'd try a factory reset before driving 65 miles.
Note you will lose all settings if you factory reset it.

Might be a separate fuse for the amp too.

Re: Blackstone Oil Analysis Report on Factory Fill Oil 2014 Pentastar V6 with 6000 Mi

131K, that was just broken in. My 2002 4.0L GC had 227K and my service guy had 300K on his 4.0L. It's keeping the rest of the Jeep together that's usually the limiting factor :)

Re: JGC RWD vs 4WD?

Audi makes fantastic AWD systems. If I was concerned about safety only I'd be in an Audi. I've not owned a Subaru but I've heard some pretty positive things about them. I sure Land Rover does too.
