Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Yes and I thank you for your help... That is one thing I don't do is get on them every now and then. Thanks I will give it a try.... It's funny I always have worried about over heating my rotors for fear of warpage. I guess the Brembos need the heat every now andd then.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Haven't done anything on mine of late as I consider it perfect at the moment. However was helping my buddy on his '13.Put in a camera with him,instead of reading the how to' when we had finished,he had a pissy fit because it wasn't doing what he wanted to,slammed his hand down (has a short fuse) and connected with the screen on the info system,yep,you guessed it,all busted up. As for the camera,I switched it to ON and it works fine.
Moral of the story..............don't be a baby.
Lord knows what a replacement screen will cost.

Threw on a K&N 33-2457 high performance air filter and washed the Jeep. Have been thinking about plastidipping a lot of the chrome exterior (badges, grill and mirrors). Then just waiting until warranty is up (a few years from now) to throw on a RIPP stage 1 supercharger.

They stop on a dime and look cool.Just something I'll have to live with I guess... Or maybe get a softer pad...

I know I will get thrashed for saying this but have you tried the CRC brand Disc brake quiet? I've used it on older vehicles and it seems to work for me.

Added RRO lift kit and new 275-55r20 tires. Unfortunately I'm dealing with a knocking sound when going over bumps on the passenger front wheel.

Very nice. How are you liking the intake? Pretty easy to install?

Something I'd like to get at some point.

How much will the larger circumference tires throw off the speedometer, computer, etc.?

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

I gave it a good wash and detailing this morning, after we took it on a 500 mile trip yesterday. We headed out early, and went from Phoenix to Lake Havasu City. Then up to Ft. Mohave / Bullhead City. After that we went to Kingman, then took 93 South through Wickenburg, back to Phoenix.

It was the first time we had it out on a nice long trip. The HEMI ran flawlessly. When we left the MPG average was 17.5. When we got home it had gone up to 21.5! I couldn't believe it. I've never reset it since we brought it home last April. (I can't believe we've had it almost a year already).

And I didn't baby it either. Most of the time on I-10 we were running 80 MPH or more. A lot of the roads were non divided 2 lane, especially on 95 North from Quartzite to Lake Havasu. I got stuck behind several strings of cars, that were all being held up by these 80+ year old Blue Hair's on Oxygen, pulling their 30 foot stagecoach's 15 under the limit. The HEMI went around all of them like they were standing still. I never had it in "Eco Mode" either. I was really impressed at the performance, as well as the mileage, along with how nice it drove. Even the dog performed well. He traveled the whole day like a trooper!
