I also purchased the iSimple kit today as well. Having a discount at Best Buy comes in handy sometimes. Looking at wiring it up this weekend when I get new tires and plasti-dip the rims.
How did your grill come out? Any pics of the wheels plastidipped?

I've owned the WK for a few days now. Thought I'd throw up some pictures. I debadged the rear hatch last night, finished up the grill, Plastidipped the rims and got new front tires since the older ones were a little bare.

No need to move the fuel tank. You can run a modified OME at 3.5" and be fine. Once you get to 4" of lift you will need a Superlift kit which has brackets for the rear upper control arms which help to clear the tank with that big of a lift.

That's for your back up sensors. As more lights show that's means you are closer to the object behind you. Should also hear a noise when the lights turn red.

Back up sensor indicator. I think it goes to 4 or 5 lights as you get closer to an object.

Drove over a couple mountain passes through some crazy snow in the middle of the night after it sat for 12 days.

Finally got around to color matching the headlights

Something Jeep should have done from the design stage. Enough with the chrome already
