Couldn't really see anything. Maybe take more pix when it's daylight?

Any recommendations for my 2010 WK? About 75% of my driving is town or highway but I prefer the more aggressive look.
Got the nittos and they are getting toward 4/32's of tread and they still work great in the foot of snow that fell in South Dakota the last two days.

Installed rear shocks today. They are ridiculously easy to replace. Now just to save up for the fronts. Then it will be like driving on a cloud again.

I did all four corners last month and it changed from great to awesome! Soon, you will see what I mean.

I need the best place to get a second programmable key for George. The dealer never sent the spare and I worry that my luck will run out and he will be stranded.

Any ideas? Links to where would be most helpful. I found them on ebay for $135, but I know you guys can do better.

Well you can get the key for $60 but probably will have to go to the dealer for the programing and I'm not sure if they'll program after market keys.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/140862912814...84.m1497.l2649

I was recommended this company by another forum user and I can also verify that they are legit. The buttons are smaller and it doesn't say jeep on it but works flawlessly.

And I was jealous, I unfortunately am long out of warranty and they do not come cheap. My dad is a mechanic and gets me the parts for his prices and I still want to cry.

I also have this strange urge to name her now? I'm thinking Shaniqwa since she got dat big o' booty.

Picked my Jeep up after getting my bumper replaced due to a 4runner kissing my ***. So I have a nice shiny new bumper. Took it home and installed a new Curt hitch and wiring harness which went pretty smoothly. It does flex the bottom of the bumper slightly but doesn't look too bad.

You should order two, you always wanna have three keys. As long as you have two you can program your own. Trust me you definitely dont want to pay that program price twice. Although you could just buy a transponder key (sp?) Just for programing the fancy keys. I believe they are only $20 on ebay. Basically with these cars your screwed if you loose one key because then you have to go to the dealer always keeping that third one guarantees you'll have the two you need to program an extra.
