I just hate the harshness from the sidewall. I guess that can be tuned out with suspension? Maybe they're worth picking up.
Yea I could tell a big difference in my C5, but modern tires/suspensions make it quite difficult to tell.

A lot of folks complain that lack of sidewall stiffness actually lowers performance ...
Also considering that I don’t have a spare or AAA this maybe the only way to fly
AAA is cheaper than the price premium for Runcraps. I raw dog it in both cars... have had to use the AA a few times :foreveralone:

Oh interesting.... I’m weird enough that over time I found out what most people drive. How I made friends with the cornflower blue GTI, dude. And lowered Si dude.

:notsure: if chally dude will get along with me, as he was mean. :pout:
I'd love to make friends with some of these dudes, but our building is nearly as big as the pentagon. They could be anywhere. Short of stalking them in the parking garage, or leaving a note on the windshield :gaydance: I doubt it'll ever happen.

:foreveralone:
I have spent time trying to figure out the enthusiast car owners here... there aren't many :doe: Mostly modded :jeep: that all of the executives drive, and I don't really bother talking to those guys.

That Chally is :tits:

I don't have those.
How about sending an email to "everyone" or "all employees"? I'm sure there is an alias if you look in Outlook.

:lolol:

I think I told the story before but back when the John Wayne bobbit story was fresh, a dude used the mass email alias to send a joke about the situation on his first day at work. Fired by lunch.
We use Google, not even outlook. No idea how alias's work, but not really interested in finding out...yet.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

You missed my post about getting them for 1/3 cost. :scrooge: I ain’t paying the new prices ... it’s $900-1000 for runcraps on the mini

I'd :troywax: on the PSS wheel/tire set, try to lowball. Use the tires for 20K miles, then sell the set for minimum loss. Normally tires are free or close to it when bought used mounted on some wheels.

He is local, but it mainly makes sense if it comes with tpms sensors... I also don’t really like the look of those wheels, because they scream “aftermarket”.

Either way ... :notsure: yuge Performance upgrade but a style downgrade

I really like the look of the JL. Definitely wagen esque.

Though, the first problem has been found, and it's bad. The driver's seat heater doesn't work. :doomed: to the :dillerman:

Man that's kind of :fuckyeah: and : :disappoint: at the same time, when everyone has the same vehicle. Hard to stand out... but you work at FCA, so that makes sense.

These guys just happened to be parked together when I was looking for a spot. Pretty neat. There aren't a ton of Gladiators...and very few if any Orange ones like mine.

I get comments CONSTANTLY when driving around. People loving the Orange, or just the look overall. It still seems to stand out well among the masses.

Now, the JL Wagen...you can see exact replicas of those regularly. That thing barely stands out around here, but :tits: loves it so :aintcare:

I did drive it a bit this weekend, and the 2.0T felt like :stig: compared to my 3.6 Gladiator. My dad is taking delivery of his 2-door this week, that thing should feel :plaid: by comparison.

The gray looks awesome. Certainly my #2 or #3 choice. I saw a Hydro blue engineering truck that rivals Sting Gray as my runner-up color. Punk'n Orange is far and away my favorite :doe: Zero color ragerts.

I too would have gone for a soft top if I lived where you do...and if my wife wasn't going to divorce me over it. She HATES the way the soft top looks when "open".

I have the freedom panels off my truck daily...they're really awesome. Will probably pick up a sunrider for hard top in the spring.

jl wagen is epic they are sort of rare. I am a bit surprised, but I don't see THAT many JLs out here and let alone JTs.

Considering that they are the best (or 2nd best) selling jeep... I was expecting more but this may be unique to Cali, as we're @$4 a gallon.
When is the JLU getting fixed? Curious about your experience in the heartland... our Service here is terribad ...
