  1. When to change spark plugs?

    Tech Tips/DIY/How To
    same interval as the blinker fluid.
  2. Anyone else insulate their intake?

    Engine Performance/Intakes/Exhausts
    no, actually. i mean, i don't hate it, but i don't prefer it. it has been proven that intake air temperature changes air density. air density is directly related to the amount of power the engine can produce. just about every engine has a similar design- an intake system that gets exposed to...
  3. Anyone else insulate their intake?

    Engine Performance/Intakes/Exhausts
    I did this on my track car. This is really good stuff called Teknofibra. It takes some time for marginal savings, but I enjoy it. I also chose the AFE intake for the closed box design.
  4. Tire Pressure Difference

    Suspension/Driveline/Brakes/Wheels/Tires
    that makes sense. i would presume this truck would be programmed to "know" that i'm on pavement and just making a right turn at a stop sign and not activate the lsd or put any pressure on the clutch packs.
  5. How the ELSD on Quadra Drive 2 WK2's is more of a locker than people think.

    Suspension/Driveline/Brakes/Wheels/Tires
    aka a "poor man's locker."
  6. Trying to make my wk2 with qt1 trail rated.

    Grand Cherokee - WK2 -
    that would be a nightmare man. i'm new to this platform, but i also have a serious offroad rig at home. there isn't much support for these wk2's. not nearly enough technical data for a swap with wiring harnesses and programming required. its too electronic in these trucks. you're better off just...
  7. Tire Pressure Difference

    Suspension/Driveline/Brakes/Wheels/Tires
    the tires on our 17 trailhawk say 51psi. i filled them up to 48 for a recent road trip and the truck rode great.
  8. Uconnect & Off Road Pages

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    it's my wife's truck, so i don't get to check on it daily. i just want it to be there and left alone. lol
  9. Uconnect & Off Road Pages

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    is there a way to initiate an update? i've only had my '17 trailhawk for about three weeks now and it disappeared about a week ago. it was the most useful screen on the truck... all the gauges in one place. i already tried rebooting with no luck.
  10. Just one shot from a recent road trip...

    its a nice area and the trails are mild enough for a stock grand cherokee. so i'm honest when i say one could take it out and run trails without any damage. nice little shops and restaurants, too.

    its ok partner, i can take it. i would rather not hear her complain than wheel this truck. lol

    we bought the jeep to be her daily driver. to give some context, i have a solid axle dedicated offroad truck and she knows how i wheel, so when i tell her the trails are "almost paved" and i won't scratch her truck, she is [understandably] very suspicious. plus it was a 950 mile friday-sunday...
  13. WK2 5.7 CAT Delete Advice

    Engine Performance/Intakes/Exhausts
    why was it replaced? i'm starting to think you have a differential problem and that what you're smelling. have you ever smelled hot gear oil? it has a sulfur smell.
  14. WK2 5.7 CAT Delete Advice

    Engine Performance/Intakes/Exhausts
    let me ask you this... what is your goal? to make the most horsepower possible, or to be happy with the sound? because once you start hacking and welding is going to add lips and weird bends in the tubing that could hinder flow. you would put resonators where you can fit them in straight...

    Engine Performance/Intakes/Exhausts
    removing the innards of a catalyst and welding it back up would probably be worse than anything. the catalysts do help with keeping noise in check. straight pipe it, but use two sets (four total) of resonators, plus mufflers. you won't restrict flow, and the rasp will likely be gone.
  16. WK2 5.7 CAT Delete Advice

    Engine Performance/Intakes/Exhausts
    there is not a ton of information on exhausts on here, other than a few popular catback options. use something with resonators, otherwise, you will have rasp. the need for backpressure is a myth for these types of engines.

    Took the Jeep out to Sedona, AZ last weekend. I was there for a quick wedding and the wife wouldn’t let me take it on any trails, even though they are basically dirt roads. Oh well. Enjoy.
  18. WK2 5.7 Hemi Available Exhaust Options...

    Engine Performance/Intakes/Exhausts
    which system?
  19. Where are you guys getting part number for OEM parts?

    Tech Tips/DIY/How To
    lol, i think i'm spoiled by the european sports car aftermarket. i got used to selecting the oil i wanted to use, then simply ordering it "as a kit" with everything i needed included. i have shell rotella in the mail as well as a bosch filter... so i just about found everything. in-cabin filter...
  20. When to change spark plugs?

    Tech Tips/DIY/How To
    Maintenance schedule says on page 447 in the manual says 100,000 miles. I'm probably going to do them at about 50k.
