Re: What did you do to your WK today?

If you guys know anyone looking for the srt/mopar side skirts please let me know! I want the mopar front lip and they only sell it with the side skirts. So i'll need someone to buy them off of me. Might even hook someone up with a friendly deal. Please let me know! Thanks.

Hey Bro, sorry for late reply. I didn't notice any change in MDS with the different oil, but will reconfirm that once I get the truck back and to a highway test. However, the fuel economy has gone down since I lifted it, put bigger tires on, added extra weight (armour), tuned it to 91 Oct

Separate topic, I'm now in the market for a compact SUV for the misses, and have narrowed it down to Porsche Macan S, Audi Q5 3.0T, Land Rover Discovery Sport HSE Luxury. Clearly these are in desceding order from a price point (and performance), The new Macan is very impressive, but thinking to "compromise" with a Q5 due to the price tag on the Porsche !

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Forgot to post it on here. Changed the wheels to Anthracite Grey. Wanted something to offset the black but not be as bright as chrome. Also had the tint strip taken off the windshield and tinted the whole thing 35%

He was parked first, so he either didn't pay attention or was double parking. Either way, I handled it the Jeep way!
