Dang Jeep isn't here yet, but I pulled the trigger on Endlinks and also a new machine polisher for the "Welcome Home" strip wash and polish forthcoming.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

This had been a backburner for a couple of weeks so I finally got rid of that stupid dealer sticker. Used some turtle wax solution to remove the sticky residue, then washed the area and applied some liquid wax.



Next "free promo" to get rid of are the license plate frames. Ordered black metal ones from eBay already.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Decided to inventory and add some stuff to the pepper collection. Also, I have two 2.2lb kidde fire extinguishers under the back seat, pretty substantial first aid kit, six bottles of Poland spring water, box off granola bars, box of energy bars a box of powder formula for the baby, a pack of baby wipes for those little messes, a 4inch survival knife (NY legal) and a new digital tire Guage on order.

The first aid, water and snack bars are located in the special compartment inder the drivers seat.

I know you have a 2013 and there is some differences between that and a 2015 but I noticed you have Wrangler wheels and tires but are there any issues with the spare tire not sitting flush? I put a stock OEM 2015 18inch wheel in my spare area and it would only fit flipped right side up.

What did you do to your WK2 today?

Installed rear SRT springs. Leveled her out almost perfectly, still has a slight rake front to back. The drop is very subtle, but EXACTLY what I wanted.

I'm very happy with the ride quality and can't hardly tell the difference.

Looks good Anthony. What shocks are you running since I bought your rear ones. Mine still isn't as low. What size tire and are you running spacers.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Picked up some SRT tails today from a guy who did a SRT conversion on his Overland. He also had some carbon fiber mirror covers I saw online pretty cheap, they're not all that, but better than chrome.

I'm running my OEM rear shocks. The shocks i sold you were a duplicate set i bought thinking i had LL shocks, turned out i didn't... total amateur mistake on my part. My previous 2014 Altitude had LL shocks so I just ASSumed my 2015 did too.

Tires: Stock GY
Spacers: 1.25" Bora

None whatsoever. The tires are slightly larger than the stock wranglers and the door fits flush.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

We traded it in last night. We downsized to a certified Lexus CT 200h. I've got a F-350 for towing, so the Jeep's brawn wasn't needed any longer.
