Negative. But there’s a good shop literally around the corner from me so I’ll be stopping by there in the morning.

Decent place. I love their location frequency but I have had consistent balance issues there, through out multiple locations and vehicles. Their prices are free balance is 5/7

They have been decent as far as not scratching shit... but not as far as not making the steering wheel shake or watching the headrest shake

The ones here are all staffed by early 20s car guys who always ask me if I want to pull my own car on the lift and stuff because it’s a Corvette OMG! Never had an issue.

It depends on the balance machine used. Most of the cars they do a regular balance even though they have the Hunter RoadForce machine. Next time you go, ask for a road force balance. It tells them exactly where to put the weights because they have a roller that simulates road confound (hence the name road force)

Didn’t find it, but IIRC from the window sticker it’s 115?

I looked down and saw 92 and thought this might not be the best idea and slowed down to 80. :lol:

The long wheelbase makes the JT remarkably stable at high speeds. Never had mine over 85 :doe: and the wind is deafening in mine.

The RAMs are 104mph, and I'd be much happier doing that in a RAM than 115 in a JT :lol:

It's really more stable than you'd expect it to be. Still, I'm not sure it's capable of triple digit speeds even without a limiter.

I went 110 in a rental JKU sport once on a back road in Upstate NY (RIP Troy).

I was curious what it could do... it got there easily enough but wasn’t something I’d ever choose to do for more than 30 seconds.

I’ve hit about 90 in our Beep Beep passing and it was fine.

Where’s a good place to look up part numbers?
Looking for the rear sliders, between the rear wheels and bumper.

I wish I could find one. They all suck. Forums are usually the best bet.

Apparently the clutch can blow up and punch holes into the transmission in the JL/JT. :wtf:

Wifey likes the new Chief Blue color, and is digging the islander trim level with the white roof.

Six months to go on the Renegade lease. These things are starting to hit our area, so it’s time to start kicking some tires.
