    It definitely feels like this site is now100% made for mobile devices. It has that Windows 8.0" feel to it.

    I haven’t noticed any changes, then again I am on mobile devices most of the time.

    I mean the new format here. It's one of several things I'm not keen on.

    I still have to sort out why the airbag isn't registering. And I have to adjust the spline alignment on the wheel itself. I also have a bolt of purple goretex for my armrest that I still have to find a good upholstery shop to cover for me (so it...

    I refuse to use anything but ceramic pads these days. Doesn't matter if it's the VX or anything else. TOo bad I don't see a "thumbs up" button on the new forum.

    I decided to go ahead and change out both of the front calipers, and new brake pads. The passenger side pads were toast, which were new as of September of last year. Fortunately I didn’t warp my rotor. While drivers side pads looks mostly ok, I...

    So, my caliper was seized up. Had to use a large hammer to get the guide pins out. On the way to auto zone to get a new one. Web sites says it’s in stock.

    Yep, its plug and play. No splicing necessary. Just a module that you can plug in. Again, not sure of the part# though. IIRC, it is a 3 prong and MAY BE universal to most JP cars. Make sure you get one that handles turn signals, not just your...

    Super VXer, did you change your head gasket yourself, or did you have it done? If you did it yourself, how complex was it, did you need any special tools, did you have to machine the heads? I appreciate any tips Thank you

    There is a resistor you can just plug in under the driver side dash. It is a PITA to get to unless you have infant hands and toothpick arms. And sry, did this so long ago that I have no info on the part# you need, but, something similar to...

    It will be RWD and probably hugely oversized. I was doing comparisons with the smallest SUV's on the market, and the VX still has a shorter wheelbase than even the tiniest of those. Even a 2-door JL Wrangler (the newest one) has a wheelbase 5"...

    I've installed LED's pretty much everywhere on my VX. The blinker cycles very rapidly now. It doesn't bother me too much, but it does seem to annoy some people. Anyone have a plug/play fix for this? I really don't want to have to splice a...

    Well the guy who works near me with who bought a VX...already sold it. He said the MPG wasn't to his liking--which is like a "no duh" moment for someone who should have known better. No idea who bought it. Sounds like he didn't lose money on it...
