Spare REC knob? Also, tire question!

Though I still call myself a GM guy, Jeep sucked me in again for the second time in a row. I just traded in my '04 WJ Limited on an '07 Commander Overland with every last bell and whistle. I'm enjoying it so far, but have a couple questions.

First, my REC navigation head unit is missing the TUNE knob. I understand this is the same as the VOLUME knob, but I'm hoping someone on the forum has a spare they could sell a fellow Jeeper!


Secondly, the Overland came with Michelin Latitude Tour tires. These are definitely non-ideal, but I think these were stock on some Jeeps. Are these tires tough enough to take any kind of a beating on rocks and large gravel? Most of the wheeling I do is relatively tame trails in dry conditions. I don't think the traction off road will be a huge issue for now with the Quadradrive II, but I don't want to go on some rocky terrain and end up shredding up my tires. As with most, 95%+ of my driving is on roads, so it's not necessarily worth immediately pitching these tires seeing as they have 60% or more tread life remaining. Any input on this?

If no one here has one try eBay or http://replacementradios.com/navigat...ep-p-1044.html the link is for the joystick knob but the site has other parts as well.

Thanks for the reply, marka2k!

I see that they have my knob, but it's $45 (plus shipping) for a little piece of plastic! I went ahead and called the dealership, and they can get me one for $38, but with prices like that, I will leave that as a last resort!

P.S. Is this place always this dead? The WJ forum seemed to move a lot faster than this one. Maybe I should move over to a dedicated Commander forum.

The forum is usually pretty active, hopefully this weekend you will receive more response. I run Firestone Destination A/T on the Grand Cherokee and the Commander and have good luck with them, I am not familiar with the Michelin's. Good luck on finding the knob.

To anyone interested:

The knob information is as follows from pacparts.com:

Alpine 68051837AA

Knob Vol. Assy. Bz9Cy110

I paid $6.34 plus shipping, and I received it the other day and can confirm that it is an exact match to the factory volume knob that I still had.


Further, the Michelin Latitude Tour tires, as best I can tell, are stock on the new Overland, and they got the trail rated badge with them, and there are ample videos on the Jeep site of the trail rating process on the Rubicon trail with said tires, so I guess I'll stop worrying about tire integrity.
