Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Finished up my front end mods with the install of my J.W. Speaker fogs. These look awesome and can't wait to use them when its dark out.



Also installed my Taillight Solutions kit. Was pretty hesitant to buy it due to the price but I think its worth it.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Did it come with the HEMI emblem under the "4X4", or did you add it?

billt, I "think" that Jeep may have provided the Hemi emblem back in MY11, but I'm not positive about that. I know it's not provided with the MY12 like I have.

I replaced the cabin filter at 26k. Wow, that thing was dirty!

I was surprised how dirty it was at 10k. I moved it to a once a year item instead of every other year

The filter costs peanuts why not just inc in every service or second..

I've been looking for a good "how to" video on You Tube on this. While there are several, it's hard to get a good lighting and camera angle on it. Any time you've got little plastic tabs, you have to be extra careful or you will wind up breaking or cracking something. If you don't know for sure how to unfasten a tab or fastener, it's much too easy to break it if you're not familiar with it.... And I'm not.

Of the 2 I ordered, I like the smaller red HEMI emblem the best. I ordered a couple more because I'm thinking of putting one on each side of the door, under the Grand Cherokee emblems. I just taped the one I had on to see how it looks. It looked good, and like it "belonged", if you know what I mean. So I ordered a couple more which will give me an extra one. They're only $6 each.

Another advantage is it's flat on the sides of the doors. If I mounted it on the hatchback it's a curved surface, and I think that might cause an issue. Especially for someone like me who's never installed one before.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Finally got through a couple projects I haven't had time to do...

Swapped out the dealer license plate covers, removed the dealer emblem from the trunk (and am contemplating a full debadge), replaced all interior lights with LEDs (used the screw driver method for the trunk since I didn't feel comfortable with pulling down all the trim), put some carbon fiber vinyl over the airbag stickers on the sun visors, installed Weathertech window deflectors, and, finally, finished off installing the Mopar pedal covers. I had fought (and lost) with the break cover previously but went with the boil method today and it worked pretty well. I also got the e-brake cover in the meantime and installed that as well.

Feeling good.
