Re: Best A/T tire for WK (if possible with SSS snowflake)?

Re: Rear diff gears

Re: Overinflating tires..good Idea or bad Idea?

Re: Wk2 Has a very harsh suspension in my opinion...

If you want a smooth ride, you do NOT want 20" wheels. I have no idea why they would put 20" on a Jeep, they are worthless off-road. Big rims are for looks only, no benefit on or off-road

The sunroof has a bad habit of not closing correctly, always check that it is flush with the roof, if not open and close again until it is.
