Re: No more MaxCare?

You are good if you buy from Ziegler. When you take it in the service guy will see that you have maxcare when he punches in your VIN, doesn't matter where you bought it from.

Re: Power stearing cooler and lines leaking

My 2012 Overland V6 power steering is leaking somewhere. Had to add half a bottle of fluid recently. When I find out where it is leaking I will post. Right around 28k on the odometer.

Re: Cool Useful Ideas for 2" hitch?

Put my GSXR 750 on a similar setup. You could tell it was back there on the curves in the Mtns, but with QL it was great. Highly recommended for anyone with light enough bike.

Re: Washing Your Jeep

Key is drying it off before you get spots. Even if you go to a car wash and spray it off yourself, I have a rubber squeegee and microfiber towel. I do this every couple weeks.

Price check on 3M paint protection.

Checking to see if $700 is good for for 3M installed on the front bumper, leading edge of the hood and first bit of the quarter panels. As the installer called it the "highway protection" package.
