Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Placed our oscillating lawn sprinkler on our lawn so I could drive over it; first horozontally and then verticle. Turned it on between changing its direction so it could spray the underside of my JGC. Thought I'd see red clay dust on the grass since it came from the first owner's home in SE Ga but it must have been cleaner than I thought as I didn't see any red dirt.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Finished up the install of the RRO leveling kit + some .75" rear TJ coil spacers to give it a little bit of a rake.

Also added 255/75/17 Cooper ST Maxx on my 17's.

Ride is definitely more firm with the suspension and heavier/more aggressive tires. Road noise is definitely more noticeable and was expected, but nothing I can't live with. From about 60+ MPH, they start to whine a bit.

Nose dive and approach angle have been improved tremendously and I'm really happy with the outcome. I waited way too long to pull the trigger on this setup.

Also got my custom re-badges on as well.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

The left DRL bulb was burned out since I bought my JGC. I ordered two GAATU LED bulbs recently. I replaced the rt one which was very easy. A few years ago, I would have replaced the left one myself but not now. I took the Jeep to a local repair shop after calling them.

A mechanic came right out and had the left replaced in about 10 minutes. After watching him do it, I could have done it but it was worth the $10 bill I gave him. No work ticket was written. Just a cash deal and I was very happy to have it done.

I only spent couple of minutes with those tires and I don't feel much different than the Good Year. I need to spend more time on those tires to see the different.

Finished making my first two bash plates and fitted them up. Very happy with the results. One more to go!

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

I installed Romik Side Steps on my '11 Overland. Very happy with the flat black bars. Easy to install, took about 90 minutes installing alone.
