Also, if something external damages the vehicle, for instance the lake found it's way into your blower motor, that would be covered either. Hope this helps.


did you mean, it wouldn't be covered? just making sure

now how far does the lift void the warranty? lets say the engine blew up into 10 pieces, now is that because of the lift and possibly bigger tires? now say what if I went in with a lift but 31" tires, would they able to safely assume that I had bigger tires on because of a 6" lift? if you are not able to answer this question, that is fine, I don't want to put you in a bad position...

also when I put the key in my 2006 to ignition on(not actually turning the engine over but all the gizmo's go on), the check engine light blinks, is this normal? as soon as I turn the engine over, it goes away with the start of the I6

Thanks and I really appriciate you guys doing this!

Which one of you was responsible for the different programming to provide the alternate throttle response when you shift into low range?

When I drove them up at the short lead media launch, it was very impressive.

Is there going to be a V8 engine I am thinking of 4.7L available.

How much investigation has been done into root causing the issue of Death Wobble? Side to side oscillation of the front axle.

It seems many people have this issue whether lifted or stock.

I can stop by CTC to show you.

sorry - can't discuss future products!

why can we not order factory parts more easily? I would love to whip open a jeep catalog and order a roc trac transfer case without getting hammered by a dealer mark up.
Thanks for your time!

What increases towing capacity?

What increases towing capacity? Is it just the addition of the 4.10 rear? If I get the automatic it comes with the 4.10 do I still need to add the tow package? I don't have the need for the tow hooks.

Sorry to harp on the half doors, but is it production delays or other factors slowing the release? I'm just desperate.

power windows

my power windows in my 1999 jeep cherokee (chili pepper red if you were wondering) stopped working this winter and i didnt really care to look at it because it was the winter but now that its warming up and i hate AC i need to figure out if i can fix this myself.

at first it was just the passenger window but then a week later all the windows went. and i cant find a fuse for them and i dont know where the ground is located can someone give me some ideas to check out or a wire diagram would be helpful

hi, thanx for your time and patience answering questions. I would like to get into aftermarket manufacturing for the Jeep line. is there a resource for 3d cad data? I checked the sema database but the jeep data is really sparse. i would be interested in body and chassis files for bumper, skid plate etc....if you make them available please let me know where

Thanx

What do you feel is the best way to improve the suspension of a jeep in general?

Do some research on Haltenberger linkage.

(I know the hard top was split up into pieces to be easier to install/remove.)
Actually the hard top wasn't split into pieces for easier removal, it was to give customers the "Freedom Top" feature!

As far as the soft-top design, we had to balance cost/affordability with functionality. Also remember, soft windows, regardless of who makes them scratch easily. It's better for the longevity of your windows to remove them store them in the appropriate Mopar window storage bag. Visit www.mopar.com for more info on the window bag!
