That looks great. I really like the shade of blue you chose, not over done and it all looks very clean.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

OK, not just this weekend, but I'm at a pause now (saving more cash).

OK from the top (literally):
Mopar roof rails
Roof mounted LED lights (slung under the bars) the wiring was a B*%$h!
Air horns
Changed all the interior lights to LED (damn, it is bright in here now).
Added my own version of LED ambient lighting, matching green LED strip lights in front footwells and under front seats (for back seat footwell)with resistor to dim them driven off the console LED lighting.
Husky weatherbeater floor liners.
High power LED light bar and 4300K floods in the front fascia, with quick disconnects if I want to take the fascia off for some reason.
Four accessory switches next to light switch to control the options, main circuit breaker, fuses, and relays under the hood.
LED fog lights and chrome fog light bezels.
Sprint booster, I know how it works, and some people call it voodoo and the placebo effect, but damn she really is more responsive now.

Next phase:
Dash Cam and Escort Radar detector, have both just no time to install yet.
Mopar rock rails (waiting for cash from selling my motorcycle).
Underbody lighting (have these https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1) am going to tie them into the fourth dash switch, and use a diode to also connect to the footwell courtesy lights. That way I can have rock lights for those nighttime camping trips and automatic puddle lighting whenever I open a door.
Then under hood LED lighting for night time checks or repairs, two panels mounted on hood, and two more one on each side of the radiator facing engine.

Then future stuff:
Engine and exhaust mods, possible leveling kit (still thinking through that one)

But before that I have to get her back from the body shop, on Fathers Day a girl and her mother backed into her while she was parked. Luckily I saw it happen and got their plate as they took off.

Once I get her back I'll post some pictures.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Bought my WK2 today! 2013 Trailhawk. I guess I did hardwire my radar detector to the ignition controlled 12v port today, not as exciting though. I'd post a picture if I could figure out how.

Congratulations! I think you have to meet a minimum post number before you can add pictures. They have figure out you're not a bot or something first. Tell us more about your Jeep to get your post count up enough to post pictures. Then we can see how much you exaggerated lol. Welcome to Jeep Garage.
