One other thing that was on the jeep when I got it was a red pinstripe to match the red paint on the brake calipers. That peeled right off.

If you want to hurt my feelings, just accuse me of adding chrome to one of my vehicles.
Rivets? Wow, that is even more puzzling. If it was something that was retail, I'd have to assume it might have been on the market for a very short time, since you seem the have the only set. If it's custom, well, they did a great job making it look factory.

Although I'm normally not a fan of chrome, I have to admit it looks pretty good on yours.

Brought her in to the mechanic to find out why she is acting up when turning. Hoping its just dirty t-case fluid or diff fluid!

I would from what I've read if they flash your system it will delete your tune and you'll have to get in touch with superchips . Easier to just take it off.

Got my recall done, ten minutes, completely painless.

Make an appointment, they said I was the first one in town to get it done in a town full of WK and XK drivers.

Would have taken an hour for them to get the patch and everything in place if I hadn't given them a days lead time, according to the tech.

Keep in mind that it's a small Jeep-Dodge-Chrysler-Ford (yes, Ford) dealer in a very small town in northern Michigan.

Oh, and they threw in new wiper blades.

Definitely otherwise you'll be locked out and have to pay $100

Ditched the OEM GY Forteras for some 255/60/18 Nitto Terra Grapplers. Very happy with them so far.

What's the problem when turning? Mine acts up when turning too, but only occasionally. When I try to make a really sharp turn it acts like I am grinding something, but my wheel wells are clear, so I don't know... Is this what is happening for you?

Just ordered the Aspen Creek Boulder grill! I have been wanting this for quite some time.
Also purchased my Steel Armadillo sliders, can't wait to get those bad boys on!

If you have QDII that's the ELSD kicking in most likely

It's only at full turn at very low speeds... Like a parking lot.

Mine makes a slight grinding sound when going up a drive way turning sharp. I noticed the bottom flange of the bilsteins bent a little, I think its rubbing the cv axle

It turns out I had a bad CV axle and solenoid in the front diff. Whenever I would go to turn it would bind up and you could hear a popping sound coming but would go away after getting warm
