I went with AEVs RS lift and Nitto Trail Grapplers on 18" Fuel Octanes. I'll let you know on the bumper install thanks. My uncle just bought a Sahara too so he may take the stock wheels.

I'm in the same boat! Waiting on a huge order from metal cloak and I have a bunch of other stuff just sitting, waiting to be installed! Now if only I had a garage..and time... They frown upon tearing your Jeep apart in the parking garage!!

Good luck with the mods!

So we want to toss around April dates for a meet up?!

Well I work in west loop at 1300 w. Jackson. My building has 2 large parking lots that we can use any weekend. Very close walking distance to beer and food. Just a option if nothing else comes up.

I believe I attended that institution 10 years ago if it's where I'm thinking.

Well maybe 1300 w Jackson can work. We could walk over to union park or jacks tap. Let me know what everybody thinks. A white white sox game tailgate also a option. Although I know there are a lot of northsider cub fans probably...

I'm near O'hare so it doesn't really matter to me. It would all depend on date/time. I work afternoons and have random off days.

Hey mike can u post a couple of pics of spod.? How was the install? Been thinking of doing this when I get my light bar. I did just replace my stock sound bar speakers with some 6.5" kickers. While they were out I poly filled my sound bar. Cheap mod and makes a significant difference.

Here ya go. The install was super easy. Only had trouble with 2 things (operator error).1 where to zip tie the wiring harness on the windshield frame.... That problem was solved 15 min later when I realized what those "stupid" plastic clip things were. Boy did we feel dumb. (Although we were starting to come up with some creative ideas) 2. I didn't have a 1" hole saw, so I got creative with some stuff I had laying around. Ended up with what resembled a 1" circle and shoved the grommet in. Boom done. Other than that, it was a breeze. Overall time, maybe an hour.

I do plan on doing the mod to have the lights back lit, but that's down the road.

If your on the fence about getting it, my vote is do it. It really is a nice, clean piece to have on a Jeep.

I'll try to get some better pics of the cab. Didn't realize they were so dark.


Put some pics up of those fog lights. I might be interested.
