Saw it on the news a week or so ago.

The 8.4-inch touchscreen Uconnect system is available on all 2013-2014 Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram vehicles along with the 2015 Chrysler 200.
Makes me REALLY GLAD mine is a 2012.

Got an oil change coming up next month, I’ll get it checked anyway. Also followed a link from your link that provided a third link to type in my VIN just to make sure.

I still think of you every time I pass a Wells Fargo bank. I assume you found one.

Have you done enough bad to come back to pray again? You could always come back just for the ribs.

Great to see you back, Scott! And you too, Taz. It's like Old Home Week here!

That hacking story is just another reason I so like my '78. The only electronics are in the ignition box. Not likely to be hacked. I don't worry about my phone either; it's a Nokia of the old "candy bar" generation, before flip phones. Reliable as a cannon ball.

Hey Taz! Yeah don't get on ORC much. Would love to go to KC, though not now in the winter! Landed in Boise, love it. 20min to wheeling, 1 hr to fun stuff.

I check in every day or two, I just havenít had much to say. Come on down to KC. You might have heard we got some crazy little women here. Maybe you might wanna get you one.

My life has calmed down now. We might make the Boulevard Brewery and a couple other sights.

Checking my PMs and the old posts, looks like you were here in December last time. Too cold for ya? Weíve had beautiful weather up until yesterday. Getting colder tonight.

Taz, we get your weather a day or two later. The cold landed on us Saturday night. Yesterday we smoked a turkey, but it was so darn cold I couldn't get the smoker above about 120, so I drug it into the shop, dropped the top panel of the garage door, and set up a squirrel cage blower to get the smoke out. Still stinks in there.

Hold on. If you get our weather, itíll get better. The air conditioner came on in the Cherokee when I was out today. I was in just a short sleeve shirt. Itís still 56 at 5:30PM.

The overnight low for Thanksgiving is predicted at 54. After that, it drops into the mid to upper 30s for highs the next few days. This is the Midwest, if you donít like the weather, stick around a couple days, itíll change to suit you.
