Gonna check on some weathertech mats for the WK today
I got my recall letter yesterday as well.

A guy that ordered my WeatherTech mats saved me nearly $75.

brush guard

Installed a brush guard on Sunday. Not a whole lot of protection, but I like the look and it will hold a 20" LED light bar that I bought.

Had to remove factory tow hooks, didn't install the radiator support brackets (passenger side bracket would need modification to avoid a couple of stainless steel lines, driver side fits just fine), and I didn't install the headlight guard portion of the brush guard.

Bought this Black Horse off road brush guard on on eBay for $250 shipped.

Overall, I'm happy with it.

(sorry, can't post pics. I give up. I've resized, renamed and put on the cloud. Still no luck).

Maybe this will allow access to my Pogoplug NAS:

Installed weathertech floorliners, and drove it to pick up our new addition to the family! (We got a puppy) I would post a picture but the app keeps telling me the filesize is too large or the dimensions are too large... Oh well.

Installed Monroe Maxlift shocks #901617, on tailgate (Kolak) and picked up some 3/4" expanded aluminum sheet to mod the grill. I'm working out a pattern to add the sheet to the underside opening as well.

OME HD is on the way!

Gave her a good bath. Pretty dirty after sitting for three week. Then I changed my left washer nozzle. Second one in 147000km. Now I have to order a brake hardware kit (I'll do all corners), found out my front brake was dragging for quite a bit. Hope the pads are ok.

Had fun with the rattle can last weekend. I hit the stock rims with Duplicolor Graphite wheel paint and then went for the expanded metal grille in matching spray. Today was an oil change.

What size tires are those in the pic?

I put a pcv valve in mine today. Which was probably a waste of $3 but oh well.
