for those of you with bigger tires and/or wheel spacers, do you notice a lot more chips in the paint from rocks being thrown up?

No - not really. I do notice the WK gets dirtier more readily.



What did I do to the WK today? Cleaned and recharged the K&N drop-in.
I also wimped out and decided to schedule the 60K mile transmission fluid/filter change at the dealer tomorrow morning. I got a coupon in the mail last week for a discount on service so all told it's gonna run me about $200.
Pricing out the filters and fluid I was looking at $109, not including a couple tools I'd need to pick up to complete the job. Ordinarily I do all the maintenance on it but I figure for 90 bucks I'll let somebody else get messy in somebody else's garage and I don't have to beat myself up if I have a bad seal or whatever else could come up.

Somebody - one of the vendors on here, maybe Monstaliner, offers a product like that.

Honestly, I think the outside shoulder of the tire has big enough gaps in the tread lugs that they don't really "pick up and throw" many rocks up the sides.
Most any of the rocks I pick out of the tread are more in the middle of the tire.

Put on the light bar with the hellas, Rigid 10" going in the middle on Friday. Also added an Airaid filter and box to the Jr. kit I had installed. Alot deeper and throaty exhaust note at WOT now.

Changed crd oil filter. Tried Wix. Leaked.

Changed serpentine belt. Place curse on all engineers, designers, supervisors, managers, he guy who finally approved the crd, and the Jeep jerk who decided to put it in a jeep.
