Thanks, I took it with my iPhone 6+ if you can believe. We don't get clouds too often here in San Diego so I had to get to a mountain top for a photo lol.

Installed my recovery hooks and the last of the skid plates, then went for a night trail ride in the Everglades with a local Jeep club.ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1437344520.268944.jpg

Well, I'm almost embarrassed to post this after reading all y'all's post. I loaded a bunch of old CDs onto the hard drive.

Anybody know an online source to get those factory bump stops for the rear so we can have 4 proper license plate mounts in the back?

I wouldn't think those bump stops would help with that. I would think they are just for keeping the lic plate from rubbing up against the body.

The way mine is now, it makes it seem as if there holes for the bottom of the plate but that's what the rattle stop kit does as well as prevent it from rubbing against the body.

I could be wrong about the factory bump stops but, the indention's on the lift gate are too high up.

I can take pics of how mine looks with that kit. If you like.

On my GC, the bump stops are also the screw holders so the plate bolts to it. If I had 4, I could set it and forget it!

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

I have vinyl samples of a few colors so I decided to add these rally's on the dash.

Was a toss between this matte dark gray or matte red. Decided on the more subtle look plus it kind of matches my mineral gray.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Those rally's look great! Subtle but classy, it still ties in since you got the Hemi in my opinion. Well done!
