Lady merged over 2 lanes in front of her and hit the brakes to make a turn. She couldn't get stopped in time. I took a look at it and it looks like, grille, driver side fender and wheel well liner, the hood, driver side headlight assembly, upper and lower portion of the bumper, both fogs, and possibly the radiator. I didn't get to look under the hood, but it didn't look like it got pushed too far back.

Installed my PAC AAI-CHY Aux Input adapter. I now have two 3.5mm stereo audio jacks in my center console.

I've got the REC (Navigation). According to the installation sheet, it is compatible with the REF, RAQ, RAK, and REC.

Took me about three hours to do the install, but that includes from opening the box with the AAI-CHY all the way to completion, including a trip to Radio Shack to buy the RCA-3.5mm cables and 3.5mm jacks.

Saw a nice looking Cherokee TH for the WK to hangout with today. There's a lifted XK and another WK here too.

Looks good. On my list of things to do. Did the bracket/hoses all come from Billet Tech as well?

Thank you! The install took 1 hour total from opening the hood to closing it. The hoses were includes with the BT catch can but they don't offer a bracket for the 5.7 so we made one using a 5" corner bracket that you can buy at any hardware box store for less than $5.00, cut & drilled it, and mounted it on the forward strut tower bolt. It's very straight forward so let me know if you need advice or a shopping list when you're ready to do yours.

Many thanks for the info!

Tossed my rear Bilsteins on with no problem within an hour - thanks for the great price and fast shipping from Kolak.

Also finally got the correct harness for my aftermarket HU, the PAC RP4-CH11, and it works perfectly as advertised. The best part was my daughter asked if she could solder and heat shrink the connectors for the harness and she did a GREAT job!

Might tackle the front shocks tomorrow - or I might go fishing!

What color is your WK? I can tell you first hand I was a little concerned about the durability of Plasti Dip on the chrome grille at first, but after a week or so it seemed solid as a rock. I have taken my WK thru an automatic car wash multiple times and driven around 15,000 miles across the western U.S. without any durability issues. I sprayed 2 coats over the top to freshen it up after a year and an expanded mesh mod. It is solid and stands up to the elements.

Installed new struts and shocks. Bilstein 4600's. Rides very nice now. The old strut on the passenger front was completely dead, the others were very weak. The Bilsteins made quite a difference.
