Re: DIY homemade air suspension links. Install with pics!

Yeah I remember that, but after seeing pictures and doing some research I figure why the heck not. It's just a bolt on mod and worst case scenario if I don't like them remove and sell. The High...

Re: Interesting, check out these aftermarket '14/'15 LED tail lights!

You shouldn't need to replace them. There are soo many clips on the rear lift gate trim that even if one or two break the panel still stays on rock solid. On my previous WK2 (2014 Summit), I removed...

Pretty simple and takes only 1.5 seconds. Insert the metal end into the buckle. Not only is it super easy and free, but it will stop you from flying through the windshield like a rag doll :thumbsup:...
