Finally had some time to pay some attention to the WK. Put my spare tire, a continental m+s 265-65-17 into the spare location. It fits ok aired down, eventually I'll do the hitch mod but for now it will work just fine. Also put a new coat of undercoating on, they salt the roads around here and I don't want any rust problems down the road. Besides that I washed, waxed, and cleaned the interior. I still havent figured out what caused oil to cover the cats a couple weeks ago, it hasn't happened since and the mechanics can't find any leaks. Either I picked something up off the road, which seems doubtful, or it had something to do with the cold weather. Temperature was about -12 on my drive, and at 75mph the wind chill was substantially lower. Anybody heard of oil leaks only happening in severely cold weather?

Are you able to measure the gap where the projector fits? Is it 2.5 inches or is it a bit smaller?

Haven't done anything to it yet today, BUT I have a sneaky suspicion that in the next few hours I will be hauling it home on a trailer. I'm an hour from home (shopping, not playing) and we when I let off the gas to slow for a red light, there was a horrible grinding sound from the rear, if I accurate it stops but when it hits a constant speed or inlet out, the sound returns. I inspected under the jeep, u-joints are tight, nothing is leaking, and the pinion seems to be solid and there aren't any warning messages being displayed. I'm worried my rear diff has just bit the bullet, but I won't know till I get home and tear it apart. Anyone ever had a similar experience?

If your running spacers check those check lug nuts and rotors

No spacers and everything feels tight, I think it may be a bigger problem
