Re: Bullbar coming

Thanks Studgun, that's what I was expecting. Might just have to cough up for the ECB one seeing there are no other alternatives at the moment, are there ARB?

I just don't understand Jeep's logic....

Re: First 4WD Trip - Flinders Ranges

First 4WD Trip - Flinders Ranges

Hi all, just thought I'd give a brief run-down of my first proper 4WD trip in my WK2. My 4WD Club organised a weekend trip to the Argadells property about 30km north of Quorn, in the Southern...

Re: Chrome fog light bezels NICE!

I wouldn't say easy, but I did it in a dim garage at dusk, so it was my fault. The plastic does need a bit of persuading as it's a firm fit to bend around the curve of the bonnet edge, there is a...

Re: Winter Chill Overland CRD

Great colour choice :D Goes great with the interior too. I'm thinking some pleather/leather covers for my black fabric seats, was thinking something like Saddle but the ivory looks great.

Re: Chrome fog light bezels NICE!

Here are my eBay $30 stick-on ones, along with the Mopar bonnet protector. Ordered over the phone from the dealer, wasn't sure if I was getting clear or tinted, but I quite like the clear one.

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

Have you tried a reset? Often the average is quite high to start with due to lots of time idling during shipping/transport/pre-delivery etc.
