Hi All,

I recently purchased a 2006 XK Limited. It is Dk Khaki with saddle leather, lifted 3 inches. It sports Yokohama tires, and it is a beautiful ride. I am in Wichita, KS and am married with 5 kids and a grand. I haven't been active on a forum in a number of years and I look forward to the knowledge available here. I used to ride a Kawasaki Vulcan and the VROC group was a lot of fun. I am not very mechanically inclined, but my son is and I learn from him. Interestingly, disturbingly, whatever--I drove this Jeep 550 miles in the first two days I owned it, got it back to Wichita and it wouldn't start. I think its not getting fuel, so days 3 and 4 it has been in the shop waiting to get seen. Uggh. I cannot image it is too big of a deal as it ran flawlessly up to that point. Great to be here, thanks.

Nice lookin Jeep! Looks just like mine, only about 3" taller!! Wish I had your interior color, though....

I doubt it's a no fuel problem, though....That's real fast test for a shop, just pop the fuel hose off the rail and see if it dumps fuel out when you turn the key on- besides just hearing the pump prime.
Being an '06 Hemi and 170k, I'm fearing the worst for ya....
