Possibly a bad torque of the lug nuts? Over or inconsistant torque between the lugs maybe?

Installed the expanded sheet metal grill mod... Like the look much better!

Now I need to figure out how to install the expanded sheet on the opening below the bumper.

Oh yea, I also ordered recovery shackles and a roll of LED's. Got a hitch mount shackle on the way and will order shackle mounts for the front.

Anyone use the Aspen Creek Off Road front recovery shackle mounts? I'm debating between those or going up a notch and getting the Matrix without a hoop or rails.

Whit - Aspen Creek Offroad, Formerly named Saguaro 4xGuard, makes great shackle mounts. Many of the members here use them, but probably have the S4xG Version

Whit,
That grill mod is awesome! Did you take pics along the way? I am seriously contemplating this for my Wk because I HATE those fins that Jeep stuck in there. Also, I am wanting to do recovery hooks in the front, but I am going to have forgo that for setting him up as a towed behind the RV.

I didn't take any pics along while doing this.... I'm bad at documenting mods. There are other great write ups on here... I followed this one, http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f67/e...64/index4.html

I painted mine black but now wonder if a dark gray would look better. I'll see how this looks after a few weeks. I'm trying to decide if I'm going to black out the chrome Jeep, Laredo, and 4x4 emblems.
