Re: Mod-free upgrade of wheels and tires

32" diameter is about the max you want to go for your tire diameter regardless of whether you use 18" or 20" or 22" wheels.

Do note that if you upsize your tires, your odo and speedo are not going...

Re: Order 2015 or wait for 2016?

The soonest you would get a MY16 order would be January, most likely, since production doesn't start until late November/early December. And that assumes you are right there to order when the MY16...

Re: 707-hp GC coming (in case 475 hp isn't enough)

The current JGC SRT is the best selling SRT option out of all of them, if I'm not mistaken. So clearly the price differential isn't hurting sales and the profit isn't hurting FCA. ;) (Presumably the...

Re: What Tire Pressures Do You Run?

I run my tires at 37 psi cold which provides about 40-41 psi at highway speeds once they heat up. I'd never pump them up to 44 psi...that would likely lead to very uneven tire wear and potentially...

Re: Overland quadralift test fit.

Then as long as the wheel width is within the range that the tire you choose supports, you should be fine.

Re: Keyless Ignition Lawsuit - FCA among the sued manufacturers

My personal opinion is that this is yet another frivolous law suit that could only benefit the firm(s) that are managing it if they actually prevail.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Did you try flipping them around? The polarity isn't keyed on the sockets...at least on my MY12...and turning the lamp around in the socket fixed this for me.

Re: New JGC Summit owner questions. (Canada)

What you can and cannot do with your Summit NAV system may be dependent on what's allowed/offered in Canada. It wouldn't surprise me that there may be localization differences.
