The '07 SRT8 that we had here and bought brand new from the dealer came with a cigarette lighter plug in air compressor mounted where the spare tire should be...

Yep, some of them have run-flat's like the higher end sports cars.....if they don't, they have an air compressor hooked to some fix-a-flat stuff that you don't want to turn the compressor on unless you have it connected to the tire or your going to have a mess lol

On a side note, when people buy a new car, it would benefit them to read the owners manual so they know what methods/equipment THEIR car has in certain situations. I have a buddy in TX who bought some fancy $100,000+ BMW. He gets a flat and posts on his facebook.....buy a $100K car....doesn't have a spare. It was really funny when I commented 1st that he had run-flats and his response was....what's that?

07, 08, whatever it was, don't bust my balls, I didn't own the car... It was whatever the first model year was.

My Mini came with runflats because there was no room for a spare. I can understand a mini, but a higher end sports car that has the space that is a joke. I hated my runflats. They where so unpredictable when pushed hard. With the firm sidewall you would be pushing and pushing, then it was like the sidewall would just bend over. It was not a subtle feeling either, it was rather violent. I prefer the feeling from a normal tire when you can feel it breaking loose and once it finally does beak loose it is sliding and not jerking like the runflat.

I've driven all those cars above like a grandma so I didn't notice a difference between any of the tires on them. The the newer mustang and the challenger are supercharged, or I should say was supercharged since the challenger got sold to some dude in Germany about 6 months ago. I would've loved that motor in something with 37" tires where it could've actually been put to real use!!! LOL

I got out the dremel on the tire carrier and there is no doubt that the antenna is mount is grounding out now... but I still have a high SWR reading. The cable at radio shack looked cheaper than the stuff at Frys and way cheaper than the cable that I got off of Amazon. Next step is to try firestick coax and mount then a new meter. This is way more trouble than I though that it would be.


Does anybody know if any of the local truck stops carry firestick stuff.

I bought a fire stick from the truck stop out at bluediamond and the15. But that was a few years ago.

Puck, thanks for the help when I called.

Had a guy by the name of Brad broken down in his XJ at 95 & Durango. Blew an idler pulley and lost all his coolant on his way back from Mt Charleston. We replaced the idler pulley and re-routed the belt. After filling his coolant, he followed me to my house to let the Jeep idle long enough to open the thermostat. When it did, we found a leak in one of the heater hoses. Re-filled his coolant and sent him to Autozone to get a new one with instructions on fixing it. Also told him about the forum so we will see if he gets on here.
