Nice and looking good! I can't wait to get them mounted up in the next week or so (guy at Discount Tire said the order will go out Monday). Debated new tires at a slightly bigger size than stock while there (stock is 265/50/20). After some thought though, keeping the stock tires for now as they only have 9k miles on them - plan to up them a tiny bit once they are due. Putting that extra $$$ to some other mods for now

Any issues with those rims? Or all good so far??

I don't have a sunroof so I can't speak for that...sorry.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

I add a set of AVS low profile vent visors. I know everyone like the in channel Weathertech ones but after having them on my last two cars I didn't want to deal with having them fall of the back windows all the time. Plus them being low profile looks so nice as they look like they are stock on the GC.

I bought all the skid plates from Just for Jeeps. They are the official Mopar plates and run about $450 for all of them (Fuel Tank are like $270 and then the other 2 are around $90 each).



I bought the Mopar rock rails from another online vendor (working from a dealership in NY) who I will not mention. It was truly an awful experience for a variety of reasons I will not go into. I really, really wish I had just waited and got them from Just for Jeeps but I was trying to save a few bucks and was planning to have them installed when I had some work done at the dealership where I bought my Jeep a couple months ago. Just for Jeeps has them for about $850 right now.

Yeah beacon, I was just curious what people where getting them for sense I plan on getting a set myself.. Thanks for the info. I'm excited to get mine. I've got a uncle who works for Chrysler, so I should get a sweet deal on all the parts

Nice. I hope your install goes smoothly. Post some pics when you're done.


Today I installed my Console Vault. Straight forward process but a little bit more of a pain than I expected. Still didn't take long.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

My 15 Overland will sit at the body shop overnight, because like most people have said, the rock rail install is much more difficult and time consuming than expected. Stopped by to check on progress and the drivers side looks great. Hope to post some pics tomorrow.

IMHO stick with the 20's and get some AT's. Whip looks sick though!
