I'm back to my addiction
Hello guy, I知 somewhat new here I had in the past a 98 XJ and I was on other jeep forums years ago.
I知 back in the game with a 2010 XK Limited 5.7 MDS VVT with 65000 miles that I just got two days ago. I have a lot to learn about this jeep, but it looks like I got a really clean XK, the Carfax shows that the two owners before me took the jeep to a jeep dealership every 4 to 6 months for service, and the last time it was sold before me, it was sold as a used certified pre-owned Jeep.
So far it looks like everything is just working grate, the only thing it needs are tires soon.
No check engine light or anything like that.
So my questions for now are
Should I still take it to a jeep dealership just for a complete checkup just to be on the safe side, I know to be careful with dealerships and anything they say, but still just to see what they have to say about the jeep.
About tires, I don稚 want to get anything bigger, maybe one size bigger, something that will be good for everyday and some back roads gravel and sand and winter snow.
I知 thinking about 255/65R18 or 255/70R18, my jeep is all stock now and I don稚 think ill be getting a lift on it anytime soon, the jeep is NOT sagging in the front or rear what size will be good with no rubbing, especially in the front.
And what about a cold air intake like K&N for the HMEI, I had it on my XJ and it was grate, what you have to say about it for the XK
When it comes to oil what you HEMI guys use and what oil filter, and do you go with an oversize one,
(I did that on my XJ)
About additives, I知 a big fan of Seafoam and Lucas products, on my XJ I have used them with no problems, LUCAS PURE SYNTHETIC OIL STABILIZER (Dose it affect them MDS?)
And LUCAS FUEL TREATMENT, any one uses them on the HEMI?
