Re: What has taken the most visual beating?

Already have HD floor mats for the snow and mud.

On my 2011, the TIRES have the worst wear and tear. :)

Otherwise, she still looks new.

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

Thanks! I'm ready to order, as soon as RRO let's me. Maybe I'll call them and see if I can get an order in without waiting for the website to be updated.

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

Got my RRO winch mount and Warn VR10000 winch mounted. This confirms the Warn VR10000 winch will fit. I'm also using the Warn wireless control.

Re: RRO Roof Rack With Tire

I also have a 2011 with the integrated FM/Sat antenna. I'll be installing a "shark fin" antenna soon, but know that won't change the sat reception.

I currently have four 6" off-road lights mounted...

Re: Throttle Response Lag

I have the same issue with my 2011 WK2. It's most noticeable when the engine is cold. Sometimes a little dangerous pulling into traffic.

rpoverland - your tow hooks don't look "stock". Did you do something special to install them?

Thanks for all of the updates and additional info. Glad to know the Warn M8000 fits. I wonder if a larger Warn would also fit?

Also, what about a "wireless" winch control? Warn makes one, but...

Re: Towing 2012 JGC Behind Motorhome : Procedural Question

I don't lock it either. Other than the security motion sensor causing the interior lights to come on and off while towing, I can't explain what would be the cause.
