meh. I've never even used my spare. That's what plugs and compressors are for.

its ugly (for now, needs some slight mods to bring its appeal up), the wife went car shopping and like the last 2 POS cars she bought, she bought on an impulse.

Its a 06 Laredo with the 3.7, Stone White (with the huge claddings that are black) 73k miles, options were limited (no leather, etc)

I was hoping if she got a Jeep she'd get something that wasnt a stripped down version of a Jeep.

Oh well, had it for about 12 hours so far and its nice.

Here is a pic



Since the Jeep is hers, this is what I drive (Currently at paint)

The wheels on the Audi look like they're spinning even when it's parked. lol

I hear ya about the black strip on the Jeep. You could always swap it out for the chrome trim. Or go for the storm trooper look.

I have already looked at the chrome trim that just says grand cherokee in it. if i can find someone parting a jeep (if guys even do that on here) i'll buy it.. I also plan to add fogs and auto headlights.

The window sticker said it came with TPMS, but going through the display it doesnt appear, guess i'll figuring that one out.

It won't show on the evic. The only time you see an indicator for the TPMS is when it's activated. And even then it's just an idiot light, doesn't tell which tire is low.

Oh Okay! I skimmed the manual last night and seen the picture of it in the display with each tire pressures, i thought that's what I was looking for.

I just trimmed the back of my hitch in the hopes that I would be able to fit my spare underneath. Even with that and deflating the tire almost all the way it still wouldn't fit without rubbing the track bar How do you do it?!?

Well how much did you trim? Did you do the bolts too?

I trimmed off pretty much everything past the welds but not the bolts. It would start rubbing the track bar before it hit the bolts though.
