There were several people here who had a occasional clicking/rattling/slapping sound from the a-pillar / far left dash area. Anything known sources of that?

What is the plastic air dam for? I know Mopar offers a steel replacement. What about just running without one at all? Would this cause any problems?

is there a retrofit kit coming for the JK front pass seat on the 2-dr to allow easier entry like a flip -n- fold?

Have you ever considered a really effective removeable/washable/replaceable/easily accessible intake air filter for the HVAC system so us offroaders don't get a blast of dirt/dust from the air vents onto our suits and ties on Monday mornings? Cough cough...

Yea, some have "Mentioned" this before....
I'm 6' 6" and I had to put 1" blocks under the seat risers so I didn't feel like I was in a lowrider :-)

yes these are configurable customer features in the TIPM...these can be changed by your dealer using a star scan tool....when you hit the unlock button on the key fob you are waking up the Can B bus line...

Just to clarify:
I get it on the first few subsequent turns taken at a slow/normal speed, following heavy articulation (flexing, heavy cornering). Then it isn't heard again till the suspension is flexed again.

Generally ..... its something in the basic suspension loose.. like trac bars, sway bar links or control arms.

Seriously, if its related to side to side motion, its usually the Trac bar..... other than that, check the trans mount.. and engine mounts.....

Wish I could drive it..... that would help !! Come to Camp Jeep

It is primailary for fuel economy - it really makes a difference. It also helps to create a low pressure area just behind it - and this helps to draw air thru the rad at freeway speed - so cooling might be affected in high ambient temp areas if it is removed.
