Re: WK2 Lower Front Guard

And although I'm sad to hear about the delay, I like the continued efforts to get sellers stateside so I can actually...

Re: 2014 JGC Overland Off-road mod suggestions

If someone wants full use of the UHF band, then actually a license is required to use it legally. And my little ham radio covers UHF and VHF frequencies in the 2 meter/70 cm band.

While CB may work in some situations, unless you're within eyesight and on flat land, you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who would respond for help with CB in a remote location.

Re: WK2 Lower Front Guard

So many good things in the works from CP. Just saw some new additions I hadn't heard of yet.

- Rear Bumber & Bumper Guards
- Hidden Winch Mount
- Fender Flares

That'd be lovely in a dream world, where I could afford such an endeavor. But I like the idea nonetheless.

Re: WK2 Lower Front Guard

So eager to find out when/who the U.S. distributors will be selling the Chief Products.

I can't stomach spending that much money right now on shipping from AU to the U.S. alone. :(

Re: Eibach pro lift install

Also liking the black bolts on the Bushwacker fender flares. Much cleaner looking than the chrome ones.

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...

Re: Rocky road super sliders wk2 thoughts?

Pros:

- Cheap
- Looks to be a fairly easy install

Cons:

- They're no where near as close to protective as the Mopar or Uneek ones.

I'd be interested in a petrol one too, if they ever come to fruition. Much better looking and more functionality than a spray paint cap.

Re: Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure

I think a 255/70/17 will fit just fine, probably without the bins. It's the widths at 275 and over that seem to be problematic and keep the lid ajar.
