Ditched the 2012 Jeep GC and got into a brand new Audi.

I loved that Jeep, but new heads,...

Re: Large A Pillar blind spot

The blind spots are terrible. I've come close to hitting approaching "unseen" cars a few times. The pillar is bad enough but the mirrors need to be scaled down as well.

Re: Winter - Blizzak DMV1 vs Blizzak W965

I think CC summed it up well.

I'm considering the 965 for my base Laredo still.

Not decided one way or another.

Re: Winter - Blizzak DMV1 vs Blizzak W965

50+ views and no comment ?

Re: Tow hooks

I love the look of the front tow hooks. Came with the weather package if I remember correctly.

I removed the rear tow hook for a trailer hitch. Anyone want it ?

I'm in north Jersey and was lucky to find a Laredo E on the lot with the All Weather Package. So I wound up getting that one and took it home.

Re: Taking off dealer sticker?

Had the Dealer remove the pinstripes a week after I took it home.

That would have bugged me through the life of the truck.
