If anyone has a Stonestomper rock stopper fitted to their wk2, could you post a photo of it? I'm about to fit one, and am interested in any precautions or difficulties.

Re: Off Road 18"s

Yes, they are a bit slippery, but they are all I've really had, so I just thought it was a characteristic of LT tyres. Have you had LT tyres you found to be OK?

Re: Pet/cargo barrier

Yes, but I think the Milford is full height. This goes from the top of the seats to the roof, which means you can fit long objects in by laying the seats down.
