Re: Paddle Shifters (slowing down)

Exactly what I do. I live in Missouri hill country and use the paddle shifters extensively. That's what there're for. Both descending and ascending.

I've been down shifting every vehicle I've ever owned. I do it in traffic all the time. I came down Pikes Peak and only tapped my brakes 6 times. I don't let the engine rev over 3 grand.

Re: For those who drive a Hemi 5.7

Sounds like you have a huge case of engine envy.
But not to worry you are not alone. This is quite common among 6 Banger owners. I'm just glad you bought a Jeep

Re: Its the dipstick! On the hemi

I have the AC dipstick. With seven quarts it shows exactly on the full mark. Go figure. I'm at 28,000. Doesn't burn a drop of oil.

Re: Can steering wheel paddle shifters be disabled?

Actually I'm not wrong but then again neither are you. I constantly use mine to downshift instead of using the brakes.

Re: Can steering wheel paddle shifters be disabled?

If you live in Kansas or eastern Colorado the paddle shifters would be useless. If you live in hill or mountain country you'll enjoy having them

Re: husky mud guards on 2014?

How do these install? Did you have to take the wheels off? Do they use existing holes/screws or did you have to drill? Where did you buy them?
