Made grab handles for roll bars. I used 3 small straps on each rollbar that go into strykers/tanks and connected them with small d-rings.

Replaced my lower control arms on the rear. Attempted to replace both fronts, but the Cam bolts are seized inside the sleeve. No time with Sandy coming down the coastline to cut em out & go get new bolts

Love those rims!

Today I started making plans to recess my taillights, did a bunch of research here on the forum, and have a fairly solid game plan. Now I just need to find the Dremel... I thought about giving it a bath, but thought better of it.

A hole saw works better.

I installed a Skyjacker 3.5" lift on my 2009 JK. It was fairly easy and took around 4 hours to complete by myself.

I'm just going to recess the stockers. I like that look better than the round LED's, plus I don't have to worry about making extra cuts for the addition or reverse lights.
