  3. Who’s “they” and why do you have no recourse if “they” caused the issue?
  4. New member

    Welcome aboard. Check out the various sections. You may find your answer without having to ask. But ask anyway if you can’t find what you are looking for.
  5. Will tires fit?

    You want a thinner tire for winter not wider.
  6. site lagging

    Admins did some tweaking and it seems to be faster now. Let me know if you are still having issues.
  7. Rad fan not cycling correctly

    Does it do it when not using AC?
  8. Rad fan not cycling correctly

    Maybe you’re low on refrigerant and the compressor is also cycling which makes the fan cycle. Just a thought.
  9. Tools explained

    I’ve always gotten a kick out of this. DRILL PRESS: A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your beer across the room, denting the freshly-painted project which you had carefully set in the corner where nothing could get to it. WIRE WHEEL: Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere under the workbench with the speed of light . Also removes fingerprints and hard-earned calluses from fingers in about the time it takes you to say, 'Oh sh--!' SKILL SAW: A portable cutting tool used to make studs too short. PLIERS: Used to round off bolt heads. Sometimes used in the creation of blood-blisters. BELT SANDER: An electric sanding tool commonly used to convert minor touch-up jobs into major refinishing jobs. HACKSAW: One of a family of cutting tools built on the Ouija board principle... It transforms human energy into a crooked, unpredictable motion, and the more you attempt to influence its course, the more dismal your future becomes. VISE-GRIPS: Generally used after pliers to completely round off bolt heads. If nothing else is available, they can also be used to transfer intense welding heat to the palm of your hand. OXYACETYLENE TORCH: Used almost entirely for lighting various flammable objects in your shop on fire. Also handy for igniting the grease inside the wheel hub out of which you want to remove a bearing race. TABLE SAW: A large stationary power tool commonly used to launch wood projectiles for testing wall integrity. HYDRAULIC FLOOR JACK: Used for lowering an automobile to the ground after you have installed your new brake shoes , trapping the jack handle firmly under the bumper. BAND SAW: A large stationary power saw primarily used by most shops to cut good aluminum sheet into smaller pieces that more easily fit into the trash can after you cut on the inside of the line instead of the outside edge. TWO-TON ENGINE HOIST: A tool for testing the maximum tensile strength of everything you forgot to disconnect. PHILLIPS SCREWDRIVER: Normally used to stab the vacuum seals under lids or for opening old-style paper-and-ltin oil cans and splashing oil on your shirt; but can also be used, as the name implies, to strip out Phillips screw heads. STRAIGHT SCREWDRIVER: A tool for opening paint cans. Sometimes used to convert common slotted screws into non-removable screws and butchering your palms. PRY BAR: A tool used to crumple the metal surrounding that clip or bracket you needed to remove in order to replace a 50 cent part. HOSE CUTTER: A tool used to make hoses too short. HAMMER: Originally employed as a weapon of war, the hammer nowadays is used as a kind of divining rod to locate the most expensive parts adjacent the object we are trying to hit. UTILITY KNIFE: Used to open and slice through the contents of cardboard cartons delivered to your front door; works particularly well on contents such as seats, vinyl records, liquids in plastic bottles, collector magazines, refund checks, and rubber or plastic parts. Especially useful for slicing work clothes, but only while in use. SON-OF-A-BITCH TOOL: (A personal favorite!!) Any handy tool that you grab and throw across the garage while yelling 'Son of a BITCH!' at the top of your lungs. It is also, most often, the next tool that you will need.
  10. Performance upgrades

    Correct^^ There is no aftermarket support for this vehicle as the typical purchaser uses it for what it is. A very capable people mover/grocery hauler. Not a performance based CUV. You can install a new exhaust to make it sound a little better, I’ve also heard people who use one of those “pedal commander” things to reduce lag in throttle response (have no idea it if it actually does). As stated, it already has a cold air intake, you could add a K&N drop in filter. Read some threads in this section. There are a few where people have done some things but most, if not all will have to be totally custom. We are waiting for someone to turbo or supercharge their DJ, or drop in a Hellcat engine. Welcome to the forum.
  11. Ankle Replacement

    After years of abuse (running), my ankle finally got to a point where it was painful to even walk anymore. Arthritis and bone spurs. They could have cleaned it up but doc advised on a total replacement. Had it done on the 15th. Doing pretty good thus far. Was in a splint for a week, now in a hard cast until next Wednesday, then I will be in a boot and starting physical therapy. Supposed to be back to work on the 10th. Figured I'd get in the Christmas spirit with a red cast.....lol
  12. Odd Shudder

    You will need to contact your servicing dealer for cost estimates.
  13. OIL LEAKING ?????

    Lol. I just love it when people make this statement. Like. Oh yeah! I just gave it to you Dodge! Take that! Lololol.
  14. You will need a lot of hardware and cost to add factory Bluetooth. Dealer can flash the module for the clock. Ours gained 5 minutes a day until we took it in and had it flashed.
  15. Will tires fit?

    What size is on it now? There are various tire size calculators on the Internet where you can enter the sizes and it will show you the differences. Or a tire shop can tell you.
