Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Tampa FL is under water, so I drove through 30 inches of standing water in OR2 to resuce my inlaws and take them to the doctors and dialysis. Nothing like driving into a lake, over a soupy mess of mud and dirt road to pick them up and take them out! Thank you Jeep

Those roof rails, rack and Mopar rock rails are the first mods I'm planning to do on my WK2.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

On Friday there was good and bad , first the bad and yes I am still very pissed about this. A week after my taillight solutions install and the day I made my second payment on my jeep. I was on my way to a family reunion for the first time in 18 years and got rear ended by an idiot doing over 130 km/hr in a 90 zone. He decided he was going to pass everyone on the right as a passing lane ended and I had just merged back into the single lane. I saw him swerve from the right side back into the left , try to pass me and saw a car coming so he tried to swerve back in behind me. I said to the gf f*** he's gonna hit me and instinct kicked in and I hit the gas to minimize the impact. It was either that or go into the trees.Here are a couple of pics , I figure a minimum of 7000 damage. The bumper is toast , left light fixture , quarter panel dented , lift gate dented , wiring harness severed so no signal or brake lights , dented my rim , and now a metal on metal rattle behind the dash driving me nuts.







If I hadn't of hit the gas it would have been way worse and odds are we would have ended up in the trees. The witness that was originally behind me was just as pissed as I was and he didn't even get hit or take any damage. The pictures don't show the damage as bad as it is.

Now for the only good part. I picked up a set of Mopar side steps, part #82212129AC. I emailed Mopar and they told me they would NOT fit a Summit, and that there was NOTHING available that would. Well after 45 minutes under the jeep here is the finished product , they bolt up just fine , the only reason it took me 45 minutes is the passenger side you have to unbolt 3 10mm bolts to move a wiring harness out of the way to bolt the steps up. The driver side was very easy with nothing in the way.

So for anyone that is on the fence about getting side steps for a Summit , all the mopar guys and dealers telling you they WON'T fit are completely WRONG.





Sorry the pics weren't the best they were just a quick snap to show they do fit. I will try and get some more up later when I am home and can get to the jeep.
