I like it. It looks good. I have 2 of the stick on ones, but they look a bit too much on the doors, so I didn't put them on. I may get a fastener one for the grill.

Thanks! I was debating whether to get a badge for the back or this one. Glad I went with this one.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Had mine in today for an oil change, tire rotation, the P67 and R40 recalls and the TSB for the amp wake up. Tech told me that my U-Connect software is up to date so there was nothing he could do about the amp wake up. Oh well, I've lived with that since the vehicle was new so I can live with it for a few more months.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

The amp wake up is TSB 08-083-15A. The condition is pretty tinny sound out of the Alpine system, like the amp isn't on. You need to go into the equalizer settings and bump any one of the 3 equalizer levels up or down then return it to your normal setting to wake it up. Then it sounds fine.

In the spirit of the season.





I will note that the OEM 18 Lats suck in snow. I should have taken my 99 WJ with the BFG MTs.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Took her out into her natural habit yesterday:



Just a little light off-roading since I don't have skid plates or proper all-terrain tires.

I also didn't want to take the front plastics off, so no rock crawling for me. I encountered plenty of mud, a few partially exposed rocks and some climbing through the trails in the trees, though. There were a couple trails I felt I could run through, but with some of the steep climbs and descents on them, I was hesitant to take too many of them without a spotter to watch my path over steep rises and clearance on the low spots.

Mostly, I stayed on the main road through the park, which is mostly un-maintained, so there are plenty of washout and rutted areas. However, the main road shouldn't normally require anything more than AWD for the muddy portions. Ground clearance is only an issue for a few washouts here and there, most of which can be steered around.

The above picture was taken in a nice flat clearing that made for a good place to stop and take a photo on one of the easier side trails. The rest of the trail was a bit tighter and more rutted, so I wasn't keen on stopping for a photo op along those stretches. This was also before I started encountering the muddy areas, so things were still pretty clean at that point. Even in the mud, I took it pretty slow and steady, so I didn't come back with any trail badges...

The side trails range from easy stuff for a vehicle outfitted like mine to stuff requiring skid plates, off road tires and plenty of ground clearance.

The park is here:
