Re: Paddle Shifters - Hate 'em

Can't speak for the 14' steering wheel, but on the SRT Steering wheel you can remove the paddles by popping off rear panels behind each one. They are mounted with one or two small nuts IIRC.

Re: 2013 Jeep Deals

Re: Help with Vipers.

Yes, the Vipers fit the WK2, offset is less than stock but they look great. There are a couple of threads in the WK2 forum.

You should buy Robpp's Vipers and tires. Search here or in Classifieds.
