Should be at Home Depot. It'll be in the hardware aisle next to the flat and round stock. Just scan the area for a bit and you'll see it.

I had to trim quite a bit from the lower grill insert for the 4XGuard front receiver,
otherwise it could remain almost completely intact for those who don't have the front receiver.

Out of curiosity, why the front hitch?

The Matrix looks good, really good - always liked that on the WK.

Went out the the local ohv park and got her muddy and tested out the lack of a front swaybar.


I really like the offroad capability of no swaybar. Less sketchy in some situation where it used to lift a wheel off the ground

Partly nostalgia for my old XJ, it had a front bumper with integral receiver.

Mainly, just in case I ever want to attach a portable winch.

So I took my WK CRD in for service and asked them to replace the wheel balancing weights and put them on the inside of the rims, out of sight (sticky weights).

Well holy crap, the old weights, when removed left a gross deposit on my rims! I have the Everest wheels and I like them, but now they look ruined.

Any tips on how to remove these deposits (aluminum oxide? Lead oxide?) its not iron oxide as the color is more dark grey than red.

Gotcha. I have to say I love my XJ. It's a pos in the end really but it's awesome to wheel.

Finally got my matrix installed. I went with the new stinger style hoop, haven't seen any people with it yet.

NICE, I always wanted to know how the stinger model would look on a WK.

Definitely goes well with the black grille and wheels I might end up getting the stinger as well when I can afford it.

Ha I was eyeing that, but I'm way to broke for even that. Ha. Great find. Can't wait to see it installed!
