Thanks for the link Aaron, I’l either going to buy or build a set for the Heep to see if they will help with comfort

Uhh it’s a JL… you HAVE to buy and bolt on… it’s the Chapter 8 in your owners manual.

Yup, my bad. Rule number 8 in the mininvan owners manual clearly states “If it don’t bolt on, it don’t go on”
That reminds me, I have to book it into the dealership his week to have the washer fluid topped up and windshield wipers rotated.

Who knew JK's were made of sugar? Should take it in to the dealer to get it checked out.  ;D

Awesome day guys! The rain made the trails a little more interesting and fun. Rain stopped at about 2pm and was a nice cool fall day.

For sure, fun day out. Just enough greasy mud to make if fun but not too much.

Stewart, sorry I sent you to the wrong car wash. It’s the one in Nolan Hill just north of the Costco. They don’t care if your Jeep is super muddy.

Thanks for the run, next time I might even bring my Jeep... Once it has tires that don't sound like they're coming apart at highway speeds.

Ya, that was a great trip. More exciting then I expected but not scary. And no worries on the car wash, I needed to get home so used the hose at home. But I need to figure out how to make my fender flares not collect mud. They stick into my wheel well about an inch on the underside and make a nice platform for mud.  Will try and post a few pics I have.
