Re: Vent Shades for 2014 Durango CitadeL?

Check the dedicated Durango (dodgedurango.net) forum. There are several on there. Most get the Weathertech ones. I prefer the look without.

'11-13 ones should be guaranteed to fit '14 models. ...

Re: 265/65R18 Duratracs

Highly unlikely, since the current spare is not really full-size. Check the size of your spare. It's probably a 245/65/18 Kumho KL21. And, that's about the only tire you'll find in that size.

Re: Hemi Oil Catch Can

Highly doubt this would affect your warranty. It may if you had a PCV-related warrantly claim, but it wouldn't impact anything else. At one time, Mopar was going to have an official accessory catch...

Re: Michelin LTX M/S2 or Goodyear Wrangler All terrain adventure

That's almost like comparing apples to oranges. They are 2 very different tires. It depends on your needs and wants. If you want a quiet, long-lasting, fairly LRR tire, that does OK in snow, get...

Re: Floor Heat Not Completely Directed to Floor / Cold Feet

Our Jeep did the same thing, and it drove me nuts. There's air coming from the side vent, and I'd be hot on top, but my legs and feet would be cold. Now, our new Durango does the same darn thing. ...

Re: Focals ISS 690, ISC 165 & Polk db351 install tutorial with pics

Volume isn't the issue with the Alpine system. It's designed horribly, and sounds bad. Boosting the existing signals will only make it louder -- which it doesn't need. In order to take full...

Re: The All-New BT clear catch cans !

They are copycats. It's in their name. I'm sure their cans are fine, but I'd spend $10 more to get the real thing.

Re: Infinity Speaker Upgrade on Stock Alpine System

I would definitely pick the HAT Imagine 6x9 over the Focal Integration. Problem is, the HATs retail for $399. I don't see why they are +$100 more than the 6.5s. I'd probably pick the 6.5s. I...

Re: Infinity Speaker Upgrade on Stock Alpine System

I'd ask the OP in that thread. He also has all prices listed. You could get by with just changing the front speakers for ~$300. The rears wouldn't be necessary until later (or never).

Re: Fender Trim (Summit) lifting

Re: Focals ISS 690, ISC 165 & Polk db351 install tutorial with pics

I noticed you can buy last year's IS 165 (6.5" components) for $149. I'm tempted to try them. That's $90 less than the ISS 690 6x9 scratch-n-dent from Crutchfield. I know the 6x9s will get...

Re: Anyone Dynamat their whole Jeep?

The noise you hear are the tires. The WK2 is a quiet vehicle. Dynamat is over-priced, and wouldn't do much for blocking outside noise. You'd want MLV for that. Read here:

Re: To De-badge or not 2014 Summit

Not. You bought a $55K suv. Why be ashamed? The only ones I would consider removing, would be the side door lettering. These are a pain to clean, and will catch tar, etc.
