Usually you can do pretty much whatever you want if something that you installed obviously wouldn't be covered likewise if it damages something else that would not be covered. The one caveat to the whole thing is if your dealer wants to, they can blame anything on one of your mods throw their hands up and tell you they're not responsible and there's nothing you can do the key is don't piss off your dealer or use a dealer that isn't friendly to mods. I'm currently fighting with my dealer in regards to a stereo issue that has been there since day one and they want to blame it on the fact that I have aftermarket electrical items installed fog lights backup camera.

I'll fight for 1.5%ish...I don't think they'll be able to match the 20% down number from my credit union. Although I think I saw a guy post a while back that Chrysler matched a .74% rate from USAA. I don't think my credit is that established to get a rate like that though!

ssramage I'm still pretty young so my credit isn't great. I usually get about 4% wherever I go. The nice thing is though that three credit union where I have my rental house account will beat your current rate by 2% if you refi with them. So both of our vehicles are at 2%.

ciarraikerry When I lived in Memphis, I was at the grocery store at 6 am on a Sunday so I could get some meat marinating before I smoked it later. I had a 12 pack at the front of the belt and the cashier kept grabbing everything behind it and scanning it but wouldn't touch the beer. She finished everything else and told me she couldn't ring it up until after 12:00. I promised her I wouldn't drink it before then. No Sale. I left everything there and went home.

The dealership being closed on Sunday is part of the "Blue Laws" - same laws that prohibit alcohol sales in some states on Sunday's.

That rate is freaking awesome. I wish I could get that and refinance both jeeps. Holy hell, that's just like free money. (Insert all standard responsible spending disclaimers here. )

Yes thats a very good rate! My bank is offering 1.19% for 72 months with 20% down. Anything under 20% down and it's 1.99%. It's some "New Years" special they are running.

I walked in on the 23rd to close all my accounts (they have no locations out here obviously), and they were trying to get me to keep the accounts open. The guy I was talking with was like..."need to buy a house?"..."a car?"

So I told him I was just about to buy a Jeep and they ran the numbers. Pretty damn good rates which are hard to pass up. Of course I have to keep my accounts open to get them so we'll see...

The spare is much lower. Be careful, you can crack the mount by over tightening. I'll try to find the torque spec.
Edit: 40-80 ft-lb.
