Re: WK2 Front Tow Hook Installation (pic heavy)

I probably didn't need to lift it, but it made it easier. I have long arms and like to get a better by raising up the Jeep. I have an '11 so not sure if it's much different.

Re: WK2 Front Tow Hook Installation (pic heavy)

Finished the Tow Hook Install this past weekend. It took me 1 hr 45 min. I wasted 30 of those minutes trying to get the jeep off of the jackstands. My jack would not pick the jeep up enough to...

Re: My 11' Limited reliability update

'11 with 25,700 and very happy to this point. Had to replace a minor part on the cup holder and have the a part of the suspension tightened (probably due to off road use). Also had one DRL burn out.

Re: New ARB Compressor Install WK2

Yes. I need this. I'm so tired of waiting to go from 18 psi to 37 psi with my crappy cigarette lighter compressor. Takes about 8-9 minutes per tire.

Re: Replacing 20" rims with 18" on 2011 Overland

I went from the OEM 20's to the OEM 18's with Yokohama Geolander AT/S and as Cold Case mentioned, the diameter was exactly the same so no recal was necessary. No TPMS issues either.

Re: Need a off-road tire for Overland?

IMHO, you should ditch the 20 inch rims and go with a set of 18's. When you drop to an 18 you give yourself a lot more sidewall. I did so and I'm running 265/60.18s Yokohama Geolander AT/S. You...

How Low Should You Go? (PSI)

I've had a lot of success going with 20 PSI in really fine sand (think dunes). I would imagine you might need some bead lock to go much lower than that. What is everyone's take on this?

Re: What's ya Jeep gettin for christmas?
