    COVID-19 UPDATE

    Hi Everyone, I hope you are staying safe and well, and that many of those Jeep projects have been ticked off the list! As an update to the above, we are waiting on our chosen campground who in turn is waiting on the government to relax restrictions but only when it is safe to do so. As soon as we can, we will confirm and provide pricing, details, and tickets for Summer Camp. For now, we have two offroad sites. One for Saturday the 15th of August, and another one for Sunday the 16th of August. We hope to hold a variety of socially distant type activities at each site. All of this is up in the air of course depending on what Covid has in store. For now, plan on Jeepin' in the South! Stay safe out there Jeepers. Jim

    Converting USA JK into the UK spec

    1. Get your EU compliance cert from Jeep, you can only do this through Jeep if its paid off. This helps greatly. 2. You need to splice in the front indicators to the side markers or better yet, get type approved such as the Rugged Ridge Flat Fenders with the sidelight visible to pass the tests. 3. Rear lights can go two ways a. Putco European rear led lights, amber indicators so you're set b. Wiring of the indicators from the front to the rear and replace your reverse light with an amber one. c. Relocate your Reverse light wire to a separate light, such as many aftermarket reverse lights and/or flood light, 2x2 cube for example. 4. Emissions you'll be grand as its a 50 state emissions which has to pass California tests so they exceed European standards. 5. If you've halogen they are angled somewhat for LHD, Jeep makes LED upgrades so the pattern is flat, passing tests as the centre spot is universal and doesn't dazzle anyone either side (you'll find this universal now with LED headlights in vehicles) 6. Rear Fog light, easily installed and wired to a blank in the lower dash 7. Full tank of fuel as the IVA want a full tank for some reason Jim, anything I miss?

    first upgrade of the year

    genuine MOPAR Parts made in the USA. Bought them from Quadratec, only because there were no dealers open last week, otherwise I would have gone through my local jeep dealership

    WK2 tyres.

    I’ve just found out I can get a hefty discount on Cooper tyres through a deal they offer to Mountain Rescue team members. So it looks like I’ll be going for their Discoverer AT3 4s after all.

    Does the SRT have the same offset wheel and track width as a standard WK2? Might find larger tyres rub if not. Regarding brands of tyres etc. the most important factor I found was whether you will be airing down off road. I do know that airing down to 22 PSI on the Goodyear wranglers shortened their life considerably with what it did to the tyre wall green laning.

    I looked at Michelin, BFGs and also Coopers for my 2012 Jeep GC however after reading reviews regarding comfort, noise, handling i.e. road grip etc they were not recommended by other Jeep owners. I eventually bought Continental tyres and have done approximately 11k and find them okay. On a previous 2005 Jeep GC I had 17" Michelin Latitude Cross 111H. Excellent tyres in dry and wet. If they were available in 20" I would have bought them instead of the Continentals.

    Thanks Volant, that’s just what I wanted. Someone who’s used them and knows they’re ok. I can get BFG KO2’s in that size, which I’ve always liked.

    WK2 tyres.

    On a 2016 WK2 SRT I run 275/50/20 in the winter no prob. Good fit. Good ride and not as harsh as the 295’s nor as low of a profile

    first upgrade of the year

    Genuine latches? Can I ask where you got them? Seem readily available stateside, not so much here (apart from cheap reproductions).

    first upgrade of the year

    I've been toying with this upgrade for several months now. switched JK hood latches with the JL equivalent. I'd previously replaced the original JK latches with some from Drake. They've seemed to have given up the ghost. Very easy to fit, just requires a little bit of drilling to get them to fit right. There are videos on Youtube advocating the need not to. Anyway, pretty please with how they look

    It took ages but at least it was clean oil. The MGB has plenty of room for tall people.

    The OP's post was regarding a 2017 WK2 and I suspect there is virtually no difference between the 2017 and 2018? Best is to ask the dealer or Jeep themselves.

    WK2 tyres.

    Hi , Well, this is only my guess. My WK is on 18" wheels from new (2010) I think this size was an option over the 17". As far as I am concerned it was therefore a standard size. I am considering changing my car this year and have been looking around. One likely option is WK2 and I looked at one. It had 20" wheels,was 2018 and it LOOKED to me that the discs and ,therefore , likely the calipers were larger than mine. This is important to me because very low profile tyres are the last thing I want. Some WK2s DO have 18" but whether they are the same offset etc I don't know.

    WK2 tyres.

    On the 2012 Overland with the 20" tyre the spare is a 18" tyre so changing to 18" should not be a problem or changing from 18" to 20" should not be an issue either. However it must be remembered that the spare will have to remain a 18" tyre.
  25. PDB

    WK2 tyres.

    20" wheels may have been a marketing decision based on popular trends. The WK originally had 17" wheels. Mine was a 2010 S-Ltd with 18" wheels specific to the model. I changed back down to 17s. If the front disks and calipers have not increased in size from the WK (I think they probably have) then smaller wheels might fit. I'm guessing that you may be able to fit 18" wheels on the the WK2, which will help with tyre size options. But maybe it isn't possible???

    WK2 tyres.

    I thought that the Overland came standard with 20"? Our 2012 Overland has 20" tyres as standard.

    I'm sure it'll turn out great Fourpot. How long did it take to clean up your MGB after that little episode? Always fancied an MGB GT but those classics a little too cramped for me.
