  2. Lower Bumper Grille replacement for '18 HA

    Interior/Exterior/Visual/Lighting
    Follow up: this part: https://parts.lithiachryslermedford....lle-68258570aa Is a facade for the '18 HA, but it does not have standard cutouts for towhooks :( But now that I have two, I'll cut one up to fit the tow hooks I bought.
  3. What did you do to your WK2 today?

    Grand Cherokee - WK2 -
    Finished a week long road trip! '18 HighAltitude HEMI. 1219.6 Miles 24.8 MPG (:eek: :D) 24:42:10 drive time. Ran 87 octane the whole time, it was a mix of freeways and roads from sea level to almost 8000'. Only 5 of the hours were spent below 5000'.
  4. Adaptive cruise and auto Braking.

    Grand Cherokee - WK2 -
    I found this report: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/321958282_Safety_problems_in_vehicles_with_adaptive_cruise_control_system It concluded that ACC's increase in safety is huge. "These technologies minimize the rate of fatality but not avoiding accidents. ACC system provides assistance...

    Exactly, It's the summit fascia... that helps. I foudn this part too which says it replaces the 68258566AA: https://www.factorychryslerparts.com/products/jeep/grille-lower/GRILLE-Lower/13279794/68310778AB.html at $33, it might be worth a shot, but that picture doesn't show what I'm...
  7. Lower Bumper Grille replacement for '18 HA

    Interior/Exterior/Visual/Lighting
    Hey crew! I'm wondering if this part: 68310778AB Will fit the lower bumper grill of my '18 HA with ACC. I want the grill with the cutouts already in it for the front tow-hooks I plan on adding. Rather than dremel/cutting the existing front grille. Will this fit my front bumper as it is...
  8. Adaptive cruise and auto Braking.

    Grand Cherokee - WK2 -
    I love the ACC and FCW/Brake Assist. v8-HA here... I use the ACC all-the-time. Generally if there's traffic, I'm on the 2nd distance setting. If I'm on the interstate and it's not tight, I'm on the 3rd. I Don't mind the sudden slowing when a car merges in front of you. It's a system designed...
  9. Proper Configuration for Flatbed Tow

    Grand Cherokee - WK2 -
    If it's on a flatbed you don't have to do any configuration. The flatbed truck will scoop the vehicle up regardless of it's transmission state. The manual speaks a lot about 'Flat Tow' which is when you essentially drag the vehicle behind another (like tow it from your RV with all 4 wheels...
  10. Something rolling around behind the dash or in the body panel

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Welp... update... I got them! A long 'part' grabber did the trick. Took off the plastic cover over that body panel and then threaded the picker in there, used a flashlight through the holes to spot them. Found 3 in total! Peace and quiet on the road again :)
  11. Noise cancellation- how does it work. Hearing weird noises

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Excellent find! I think the mics in the headliner are also used by the phone/voice control, so not sure I want to disable those either. Let me know what you decide...
  12. Side Roof Rack Rails - NEED HELP PLEASE..

    Interior/Exterior/Visual/Lighting
    I have very limited concerns, the rivnuts in there seal pretty well, if you have a loose one cover it with ducttape or seal with silicone (hidden by the rail anyway). The existing rails let water inside of them, but nothing should be able to get past the rivnuts!
  13. Noise cancellation- how does it work. Hearing weird noises

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Did they mention it making a difference? This isn't an on-going 'drone' in my experience. I'm talking about a thuddy/bass hit whenever going over rough or potmarked pavement. Different road surfaces definitely make it different, so that makes me believe it's the combination of the vehicle...

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    He's saying it's a deep bass thump/drone sound the vehicle makes. You're not crazy OP. I hear it too, but only on rough surfaces for sure. I think it's just the resonance of the vehicle itself.
  15. Something rolling around behind the dash or in the body panel

    Looking for info on how to remove the front left fender. It's the only way to access some of the larger cutouts in that section of the frame...
