Re: Audio build for beginner: Advice needed

Re: Whats the best air intake for a wk2

I noticed you're in California. In CA you have to get one that is CARB legal; well you don't have to, but you'd need to take it off when you get it snogged. Mopar makes one that is CARB legal.

Re: Falling Out of Love with My 2014 Grand Cherokee

I share your sentiment on alternative cars pretty much to a T. My other car is a 2000 4Runner which to this day runs like a champ. I seriously considered buying another 4Runner over the JGC but...

Re: Falling Out of Love with My 2014 Grand Cherokee

GCLimited, sorry to hear about your troubles. I too have had issues with my 2013. I'm on the fence...to sell or buy the lifetime warranty.

Out of curiosity, do you have a replacement car/SUV in...

Re: 2014 White updated pics

Love your Jeep! I have a white 2013 Overland...I might have to give that SRT body kit from blackops some serious consideration.

Re: Laredo with RA3...Activate Nav or No?

I too like having the nav built in and not on a secondary device/screen. A little steep in cost to activate but a really worthwhile upgrade IMO.

Re: Air filter housing hose to engine missing?

Re: '14 3.6l Engine Trouble

Does it sound like a clicking noise? Almost like a loud diesel engine?

One of the cylinder heads on my hemi went bad and it made this noise.

Re: 2014 Limited - Lemon Law?

Re: 2014 Overland - A loss for words....
