Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

pretty much the same pedal plate size just doesn't have clip prongs so you will have to glue - ask Maxy9 he did the same I think

Swapped out my P Zero run flats for Yokohama Parada Spec-x tires. Haven't put enough miles to judge the ride and handling, but the bumps are sure a lot smoother. I had them on my WK1 SRT and loved them.

The tread profile width is spot on and doesn't look out of place. The difference is really made up in the sidewall bulge. The Pirelli's had a large radius bulge that created a decent rim protector. The Yokohama's have a near vertical sidewall with minimal rim protection. I can see where people don't like the sidewall pattern, but I like it. It breaks up the large area.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Black Ops End Links installed. Initial impression I did not notice a difference. After driving I can see how they helped. One handed driving is where you really notice it. Also going over bumps. The suspension felt disconnected from the body going over railroad tracks and successive bumps. Now the Jeep feels more like a unit instead of 2 separate systems...if that makes any sense

I'm not sure if it's my imagination but it seems like it's helped my rear drop with the Eibachs. The links are shorter and it feels like it's pulled the Jeep down. I now feel like I have the advertised drop. Weird.

Overall excellent product!!!

Take an abrupt lane change around 70-80 mph. You will feel the difference.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

A good difference I hope. I was just having a hard look at the Eibach springs and the BO end links last night. Christmas present maybe?

This is most likely what I'll be swapping the Scorpion Verdes with when their time is up. Looking forward to the softer sidewall but not necessarily the minimal rim protection. I know it's an SRT so it's hard to hear over the engine but how is the tire noise?

Yes a good difference. Definitely a good upgrade IMO. I'm not looking for something crazy in suspension. I just want to be where I feel stock should have been. Now I do
