Re: What are you using as windshield washer fluid?

i use RainX fluid... works great at beading water off the windshield at speed and also helps to prevent ice from really sticking on very cold mornings.

Re: * Skunkd's 2015 White GC Altitude *

Re: * Skunkd's 2015 White GC Altitude *

I love all of the mods you have done so far, just one question though... How come you didn't just buy an SRT? (I mean that with no sarcasm)

Re: Windshield Wipers

I bought GY wipers at Costco for only $7.99 each (any size in stock) for my wife's Altima and she loves them.

4" Jeep Exhaust Tailpipe

$162 for two screw on exhaust tips is a bit steep... but at least the chrome gives another option for anyone that doesn't like the black tips.

it definitely doesn't look Eibach low (which is what I like)... I was just curious how much lower it dropped the stance. I would assume an inch all around?

Tow Hitch

The gas tank on the WK2 is not even behind the rear bumper. You must be thinking about the older GC's models with that problem (pre WK).
