Nathan how are you cleaning your Drycharger? Just rinsing form the outside and giving sufficient time to dry? I'm ready to get all the pollen off, lol.

So when I was at 4WheelParts today picking up the SL I noticed a suspicious pile from across the room and had to inquire. It was a 05-07 front bumper, OME suspension boxes, along with boxes for an intake and exhaust. I had a standing request there with my buddy to give my name and number to any WK or XK owner with a lift and interest in using it. The guy had all that installed yesterday and my friend forgot to pass along my info. Fortunately for me on my way out of the store the guy just happens to drive up! So I now have a new friend The only other WK down here that I have met up with interested in wheeling. We swapped info and will hopefully meet up soon after my WK is ready. Now for some pics because Yes it did happen

Finished painting the rear caliper covers last night! They sure did turn out pretty I will put them on this weekend after I finish the SL instal in the rear. I will paint the front eventually, the rear is just easier since they have removable covers.

Haha! Thanks bud but that is it for now. I am back to working on my new wheels. Hoping to finish up the fourth one tonight, which will leave me with only one more!

The previous owner must have removed them. I bet you could find some on eBay or rockauto. Somewhere has to sell them.

Looks good, did you use any special paint to protect against heat or do the covers stay decently cool?
