Do it! It's a great mod and costs next to nothing. Plus it looks way better then the factory grill IMO. It's becoming a pretty common mod and everone seems to be going with black. Maybe play around with some colors (depending on the color of your WK) and make it a little different. Also, I went with the 3/4", but the 1/2" looks really good too.

I think I saw AJ mention he was going to try Yellow when he does his. I think that would look pretty sharp. (On his rig not mine) lol

Sure does. I used gutter guard for mine. Just redid it. That way I don't have to worry about rust.

Got my Bilsteins today. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up to Kolak and his distributor! Struts were double boxed AND strapped to prevent damage in shipment! Installing this week.

Yes separate piece for each area. I took the chrome overlay apart showing the black only part. Cut each piece to size. I used zip ties to fasten them to the black then popped it back into the chrome overlay.

Put a total of 1000 miles on it since I bought it (Khaki one that is)!

Also had a question.. But I didn't want to start a whole new thread.

My air in my jeep is fairly ripe(to me at least doesn't bother my wife), I was wondering, how hard is it to change the cabin air filter? I have a feeling it needs a new one.

I think most wks do Not come the factory with a cabin air filter. I think one can be had for cheap though.

You aren't the first one to complain about it. Actually I think there may be a tsb for it too.

Correct, no factory cabin air filter. If you have one it's under the passenger windshield wiper. With the hood up you can get to it. If none, you can buy a kit for about $50 and filters are about $30.

Looks like a good time and your friend took some great pics! I like the effects they used on some of them.
