Nothing but towed a boat into lake for some wakeboarding fun...

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

I mentioned in a previous post and showed pictures of my new shocks. I've been through my suspension three times now. First was installing OEM SRT coils on all four corners. I also removed load leveling shocks for OEM non load leveling in the rears. After that I pulled the rear coils out and installed Airlift 100 load leveling bags for towing. Now I decided the OEM shocks and struts are not enough support for the OEM SRT Coils. This weekend I spent about 6 hours, on my own, and replaced shocks and struts. I went with the Bilstein 4600 on all 4 corners.

Ya, I can say I am pretty good at tearing up the suspension. I thought it would be a little siffer, but it did remove the bounce that I was feeling, sling shot, if you will.

So like most experienced, the front does come up a bit, i think because the spring perch on these bilsteins has a wring that is about 1/8-1/4 in height. So the stance has changed a bit.

Here are some shots, if they come through.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

I installed SRT Springs and Bilsteins all 4 corners. Took a little over 4 hours to complete in my garage on jack stands. Really Like the stance and ride now. Definitely recommend.

Post some pics of your window trim blacked out.

Sure thing. See below. $250 included labor and material. They wrapped in 3M matte black and sealed it.

If you want close up pictures of any particular area, send me a DM and I can email you.

How did the seal the vinyl? Are you talking the seams on the rear window where it can't really tuck under the rubber? Can you post some close ups.

I'm not exactly sure what you're asking here... I didn't watch them seal it, but I interpreted them saying they were going to seal it as being some sort of liquid application that assists in protecting the wrap from scratches and wear (not necessarily edge sealer). Nevertheless, I've taken a few closer pictures (apologies as they were taken at night). Let me know if there are certain areas you're looking for.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Found a screw in my tire. This is one of the things I hate about street tires or lower profile tires. I had hundreds of them on my 35 or 37" tires on my Wranglers without one puncture. Off to Discount Tire I go at 9am to get it fixed.

Black step pad surround. Not the gloss black OEM one for $180 but some replica from carid for $26. It is textured black but looks goodImageUploadedByJeepGarage1470146289.406150.jpg

That one looks like it fits like the stock one. I bought one off ebay from a different place to have it color matched and while it looks great it was shorter on each side by about a quarter inch...

I may order one of these and have it color matched at some point.
