Re: Changing out shocks

Did you install srt shocks with the stock springs? Ride height change? How's ride quality and handling? Which upper mounts did you get?

Re: leather vs. pleather

Re: Selec-Speed ... How does it work?

The paddles just change gears. And based on the gear you're in, the jeep will speed up and brake accordingly. And hence controlling the speed.

Re: First Tow with Diesel

I think the temps are fine for a diesel. I also think Jeep skipped out on changing the dial levels for the diesel vs gas engine and that's why it shows close to red but is fine.
