What did you do to your WK today?

Fabricated a mounting bracket and installed a dedicated dual USB charger and digital volt meter.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Nice job rkirk. I like to do the same thing. Can you let me know where you got those? Also what are the rocker switches on either side of the dash?

I ordered the set from Amazon. You can find them in all types of configurations from a single up to 4 I think. If you're going to look for a set, make sure you don't just get a 12v cig socket with a dual USB charger plugged in (unless you want that), there's a few sneaky ones out there. Just search flush mount USB 12v on Amazon or eBay. I paid around $20 for the set, some are more, some are less. They're probably all the same but I went with one that had some solid reviews. The rockers are my heated seats I put in this spring, hi/lo switches. I thought about putting the 2 new sockets under the switches, they'd likely fit but I decided against putting 1 1/8" holes in the columns.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Hi'All long time ...

Ordered replacement Metal Matrix Stillen pads, front are a bit worn down, but not bad considering I did 25k miles in them (in the desert heat and tonnes of stop and start traffic). Rotors are still untouched.

Noticed the boots on the UCA ball joints (first Moog now ACDelcos) are ripped again .. getting quite annoying considering this is the second pair I go through, each lasting just over a year. Will try the Fabtech (FTS20155) ones as they seem to have a more rugged boot design, and this thread convinced me to go with these.

In other news have to sell the wife's BMW E92 325i as the family expands, to be replaced with a compact SUV (watch this space ) .

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Has anyone done anything interesting with their AM/FM antenna? I've got a shorty on now but am planning a complete delete and (probably) installing a hidden type. Just wondering if anyone's already done it...

Decided to change up the wheels and brakes a bit. Now I know everyone does all black but that's the look I've wanted to do since before I bought the srt.
