I only commented because when I did it I was trying to be different (everyone else was using 1/2"). Now everyone I see has 3/4".

I prefer the smaller diamonds, hence why I used it...I like how it hides the radiator and other stuff behind the grille better...but that's just my opinion

FINALLY got the rear rotors off this afternoon. I injected PB Blaster into the studs last weekend and let it soak all week. More rust buster today and a 10-lb maul as a gentle persuader. After 78.7K miles, rotors & pads were ready for changeout. E-brake shoes are like new.

MOPAR did the factory rear brake materials right. Now, just add jackbolt holes in the WK3.......

Installed Raybestos Advanced Technology rotors and pads. Rock Auto did it right also (price & service).

I don't have pics, but thought I'd participate anyway! I finished up the switch-out of the RAQ radio with a REC nav unit. Got it installed, and made some sequential update discs. Went AG to AI and then to AK updates. Got a bezel that matched my interior color after using a slate gray one that was tossed in with the REC unit. Really like the unit.

Exactly, thank you! That was the point I was trying to make. It's always nice to hear someone else say it though.

I'm thinking of going with a metal with circles punched in or something....see if I can start something....lol... but that gutter gaurd looks slick man...it works with air flow and hides the engine componets well....but how flimsy is it? Cant be too rigid is it?

I married into an Irish family and I always found it funny that everyone will say they had "a couple" even when they where fall down drunk. lol. Anything from 2 - 20 drinks is "a couple" to them. Since I'm not Irish I tend to clarify what a couple actually is.

The wk was the boombox for the day. Living in a college town (and being in college) we had a few people over and grilled out. We may have had "a couple" too.
