My goofiest mod ever.

From long armed WJ's to this in a few years, huh. I love my WK2 and think I lucked out with an early build Laredo with some decent content. I'm very happy overall but to me my WK2 is more transport than wheelers, I limit my mods to wax and tire choices..my warranty is almost up and I'll be lifting with OME soon but it's for ride quality more than wheeling.. I'm jealous of all the bad azz modded ones on here. Until now, now it's gotten real for my WK2.

First survey the area to be wrenched on


Next prepare the hardware to be installed


Use special tools to align apparatus, eyeballs


Follow up with a light but firm "click"


It was very important for me not to do any further heavy lifting the same day, as this was very involved and a major effort. At my age I say no to "heavy lifting" please be cautious I ended up passing out in the back seat after the install.

They where $5 and do not solve any problems or do much at all. I normally do not cover anything up. These just seemed goofy and clean, I'm not sure about their long term effect or any possible downside, I'll pull them to check in a bit. They are cheap but accurately made trinkets.

Re: My goofiest mod ever.

That's quite a mod! Not sure if I could handle it myself. I'll have to see what the dealer will charge. That is, unless you make house calls.

If you ever enter a car show you will have to compete in the custom or highly modified class

Good luck my local custom auto shop quoted me $700 for labor alone. Not to mention overnight international shipping for the parts.

Re: My goofiest mod ever.

I saw similar ones on eBay...not bad at all, I think I'll give these a try! The "Jeep" grill logo on those would match the logo on my rear S.S. license plate frame.

I'm not too worried about the extensive install effort since my right hand can crush Volkswagens from all that time I spent on "adult" internet sites. Were any lubricates involved installing these? If so, I've got that covered too.

Re: My goofiest mod ever.

You guys made my day! I was laughing pretty hard for how amused and satisfied I was with these. No joke I'm so out of practice on genuine mods my next round is gonna break me, f/r light bar, hooks, srt bars, lift, hd brakes, lock pick, etc. I think my tools have dust on them.

As for prep, I'm a detailer so I cleaned and sealed the area well, I used 22ple, just because, but any wax or sealer will do. 10 coats, or just wipe and install

Be careful people the shear weight of these things had me complaining to my girl, and now I'm not getting any "dinner" because just for making the joke, I'm a "bitch" her words. I always forget who the funny one is.

eBay has them in a couple varieties.

Re: My goofiest mod ever.

$700 to install is just to much for me

Re: My goofiest mod ever.

Hmmm, not sure I can follow this just based on those few pictures, can you please upload a video.

My GC is Granite Chrystal, would this still work, or is this procedure only for White GCs?
