WK2 Mods. What are you looking for?

Hello my fellow Jeep enthusiasts. I have been talking to, and working with Riley at Ohio Diesel Parts. Riley is very skilled with CNC machines and has access to a variety of other equipment. Riley has already developed a beautiful set of recovery points which are in my opinion the best looking, best quality and best priced recovery points on the market. We are wondering what kind of products/mods you are interested in for your WK2's. He is currently developing skid plates which will be available in the near future. We will be able to offer you parts below the competitors prices guaranteed. If we get enough interest in a product we will look into developing it. These will be available in US and Canada.

What are you looking for as far as mods go? Example: Skid plates, Bumpers, Lifts?

Here is a link to his website as well as a link to a few videos showing the quality of his products.

I would say a quality bumper on par with Uneek (tall order i am sure) and skid plates. Rock rails too. If he needs a summit for testing let me know (hopefully central Ohio area lol.

Re: WK2 Mods. What are you looking for?

Uneek has a nice roof rack platform. Problem is, it doesn't have a cutout for the sunroof. Gobi has a cutout, but they don't make a platform (w/out side rails, and flat - theirs is curved).

I want a flat platform, mounted low to the roof (for vert clearance considerations), and cutouts for the shark fin and the sun roof. Sun roof cutout should be removable and replaceable as needed, but easy and quick to remove. Side rails can be added as wanted, and even asymmetrically (e.g. one on the left but not on the right - that's where I want to mount a cargo box like from Inno). And large - have it extend sideways beyond the rails about 4", and long enough for the front edge to line up vertically above where the windshield meets the roof.

And have it quickly removable, 15-20 minutes tops.

Uneek rack, no sunroof cutout, nice and flat but needs to be a little bigger: WK2 Grand Cherokee roof rack

Gobi rack, has sunroof cutout but is not flat, and I don't want side rails: JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE WK2 · STEALTH RACK · Reg 4 Light Setup· WITH SUNROOF | Gobi Racks

I would like to see a lift kit compatible with Quadra-Lift.

Something mild - like 1"-2" not to harm drivetrain integrity

Re: WK2 Mods. What are you looking for?

A hidden winch pre-runner style bumper that fits under the lower fascia. The only two quality platforms are from Uneek and Chief Products, Would love to have one that's made in America and a not with crazy freight costs.

I.E. $400+ from Uneek.

Also compatible with optional skid plates in addition to the main one, with tow points built into the bumper similar to the ones he currently makes, however vertical so shackles can be installed.

1) Rock Rails with Tubes similar to the older Mopar rails that seem to be no longer made.
2) Small QL compatible lift
3) Secure storage for the cargo Area large enough for a couple rifles.

Re: WK2 Mods. What are you looking for?

I would also like a pre-runner front skid plate, that accommodates the factory tow hooks. I really like the Uneek one (below), but would prefer a larger, wrap around brush bar to add some real protection for the painted upper front fascia against scrapping snow / ice, trees, etc.
