I'm running the wrg3. Hot, dry, wet are all great- even while towing. I'm fairly anxious to see how they do on snow and ice.

Re: Subwoofer too loud - Grand Cherokee 2014 Limited

Any of you that have an under powered sub actually tried changing the polarity of the sub wires (+) (-) to (-)(+)?. That might fix your problem as people can make mistakes during manufacturing.

Re: AFE Momentum GT CAI - anyone tried it?

With you having the V6 did you just use the drop in filter? The Momentus only fits the Hemi. AFE doesn't appear to have a CAI for the V6 on their website.
