I'm wanting to do something similar on mine. Did you have to fabricate anything for the front license plate to hide the hole for the winch cable? I was wondering how that would work, with the loop of the winch cable always sticking out.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Basically I traced the cutout from the winch plate opening onto the rear of the bumper (you do this with the center honeycomb grill removed). One traced, I used a dremel tool to cut out the section from the bumper. In terms of hiding the cable, I simply push the cable through the hole in the bumper. The winch cable comes with a strap that allows you to easily pull it out. I hope this helps.

I had 3000k HID bulbs (yellow), and swapped to a Philips branded 4300k (stock white) bulb. I did the HID conversion on the fog's previously but white HID fog's are no joke in how much light they put out.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

The old Ghost was so dirty I got rid of it and brought home a clean one today.

Here's one pic, so it did happen.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

I installed my lowering links from James and am liking the result. Much more comfortable for entry/exit with the physical issues I'm having and for my better half who is, um...vertically challenged.
