Re: Sharkfin Antenna Install with Pics

Use a heat gun to soften the double-sided tape holding it on and then use a strong monofilament (fishing line) and work it under the shark fin until it comes loose. I used this method to remove the...

Re: Newbie question here about SRT8 springs

You'll find more info in the WK forum ('05-'10) instead of this WK2 forum ('11-'15). The OEM WK shocks are longer than the SRT Bilsteins so you're going to wear them out prematurely. The SRT...

Re: Having trouble finding parts.

Re: Chrome Door Molding Removal Problem

Are you the original owner? If not, it sounds like the door was repainted and they simply masked around the door molding instead of removing it prior to paint. Just a thought.

Re: Spyder Halo Fogs?

My fogs only have a two-position switch. ON/OFF. My guess is that you'll probably need to wire up a second switch to control the halo ring individually.
