Wow, 4300k fogs put out tons of light. Sorry no pics now, but if anyone is on the fence, DO IT!
Are the new bulbs HID'S? stock bulb swap or did you add the ballast and supporting stuff

The compartment under the driver's seat isn't empty on vehicles equipped with QL, only on lower trim levels.

If it's not empty.... What's in it? And while I'm at it, what's "QL"?

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Bought some zip ties in place of clamps for my dirty side hose from my cc. In order to use clamps seems I would have to disconnect the hoses from the can and that seems like a pain. So I got 4" ties and in order to tighten I used some pliers to pull tight the tie and worked perfectly. Lets see if my leak stops from the hose attached to can.

Now that's a hitch cover! Just took my west coast customs one off and want a nicer one. May put one that works with the brake lights.

Where did you get the color matching handles? I'm trying to dechrome my Jeep as well.

Got the handle covers from Amazon but I'm thinking I"m going to get them wrapped like the hitch along with the window trim. I was going to do gloss black but did some testing with the carbon black vinyl and it matches the crystal graphite almost perfectly.


Do you take orders?
I'm pretty sure I could make you one. Let me know how much you are willing to pay, they come in plastic and aluminum, obviously the plastic would be cheaper.
