Re: If you were to give up your GC today, what would you get?

F150 4wd crew cab with leather and the tow package. I like my Jeep, but the F150 can pull more trailer or a fifth wheel. Wouldn't hurt to have one of each - a JGC & a F150.

Re: Is it important to torque bolts to spec? - A dealer Experience

Re: Who "carries" in their Jeep?

Kinda-sorta. If the speed limit is 70 and you are doing 70, you are under no obligation to slam on the brakes to allow someone in who is doing 40. In fact, if you do slam on the brakes and cause an...

Re: Who "carries" in their Jeep?

I am not sure the facts support that assertion. One person threatens to kill the other, then takes steps that indicate he was serious. No, I do not think the facts support your assertion at all.

Re: Speedometer Issue 20 inch Wheels

Here are my computations on the stock size - 265/50-20 and OPs size 275/45-20. This is about a 2% difference, so there is probably some inherent inaccuracy in the spedo going in the same direction.

Yup. Don't grab the handle and push the button with your thumb. Only touch the button. If that does not solve the issue a trip to the dealer may be in order.
