Washed and waxed Winter is coming. LED backup lights and new brighter white driving lights. Can't figure out how to post a picture or I would.

Just did a 3 stage detail on the Jeep. Clay bar treatment, polish (with DA) and wax (by hand) to seal in my hard work. Took about 5 hours start to finish. Looks better than a fresh paint job! 😎

Interior Tail Gate Lights (Was originally 194 LED's but switched to 921 LED's because there is enough room and they're minimum 20x brighter)


Switched out Reverse Lights with 921 and 7440 LED's. It's INCREDIBLY bright backing up now.



Replaced License Plate lights with LED's (194)


Fog Lights (completely pitch black garage, no headlights)



Also changed out my DRL's for LED's as well - I don't have a picture of those at the moment.

how u got the tailgate lights out? it seams i cant figure it out

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Yeah, what ^^^ he said. The side tail lights come out with 2 tabs and they just pop right out.

Also just tinted my windows today. 15% on the fronts and 10% all the way around. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1476842698.703785.jpg

Finally got around to installing my Uneek rock sliders. Installation wasn't too bad - took my time and overall it probably took about 4 hours.

I'll have to say that I was less than pleased about how the ends of the sliders match up with the fender moldings. I ended up sliding the rails about a half inch toward the rear so that they matched up with the inner part of the rear fenders, which doesn't look too bad. The front is a different story though, and probably why Uneek always shows them with mud flaps installed.

After quite a bit of debate on what to do, my dad suggested trimming down the old rocker molding to take up the open area in front of the rails. It actually turned out pretty decent.

Still getting used to using them as a step, and we'll see how they hold up next time I'm out on a trail. I really tore up the factory rocker moldings last time and even ended up putting a decent dent under the molding on the drivers side.

Up next - new tires. The TOYO's aren't doing it for me. Time to step up a few sizes and get something with a little more aggressive look. KO2's?

Those look pretty good, why did you go with these over MOPAR?

This is how my MOPARs turned out

In Australia the Mopar sliders are 60% more expensive than the Uneek ones.
