Thanks! I've requested something similar to that that he's supposed to send me today. We shall see I guess.

Don't hold your breath Chrysler is claiming they haven't paid for anyone to get replacement wheels...they are arguing the point with me...

Guess I'll try calling IAMJEEP today and complain since apparently just bitching to my dealer isn't working despite having paperwork that says otherwise....

I'd recommend saying that you've TRIED working it out with the dealership, but haven't gotten anywhere so you're turning to them for help. Butter them up a little bit.

IAMJEEP said they researched it and mineral gray wheels were not a standard feature for my vehicle

I've now resorted to emailing screen caps to them....

Got my Michigan State Spartans hitch cover and locking hitch pin today. Went out and installed it quickly in the single digit degree weather we're having.

and just heard back from IAMJEEP - they are now going to investigate this situation further utilizing a number of resources.

Once I finally convinced them to build a Freedom Edition on Jeep.com and look at the listed standard features.....

*shrug*

I have returned to work after my holiday vacation to the frozen tundra that is Central New York....took the Wrangler - 1200 miles round trip - rode like a dream - no problems at all! Even my Dad who hasn't driven a stick since he was in high school (3 on the tree) found the Wrangler easy to drive!

Well it's a new year and it's back to reality for me (even if it's a frozen one with these -11 degree temps!)

ordered the Mopar hood lock from eBay - should be here tomorrow

got a hold of ACE Engineering about the rock rails I got for Christmas - they have install appointments available next week - so I should have them installed then (pics to follow!)

Hope everyone else had a good holiday!

Did you get bolt on or weld on? If you got the bolt on sliders, there just about isn't an easier mod that you can do yourself. The hardest part is cutting the edge off of the washers and you can pick up a cheap angle grinder for $15. Save cash=more parts.

Bolt on - since they are about 20 minutes away from me - I saved on shipping and will let them do the install at their shop!

I feel ya! I'm just saying that you could have it on in 20 minutes this afternoon if you wanted to do it. I understand the letting the shop do it too though. It's pretty cold here in Georgia so I know it's cold in Michigan. We had temps down to 5 degrees last night here and that's unheard of around here.

Yeah normally I would do the installs on my own - I don't mind wrenching on my rides - but with them being so close to me I figured I'd let them do it with their power tools etc

It was only -5 this morning when I drove in to work :P
