Thanks making sense and I would feel comfortable doing it that way. When you say

I understand that as meaning don't grab both ends and try to pull them out all at once, but to start at either side and work inboard.

Or are you meaning to not start with either endside push clip, but to first remove an inner one and work outboard (that sounds difficult)?

Thanks for helping out with this..

What I mean is don't pull on the right side of the grill to pull the left of the grill off. Just work your way down the grill pulling it out by each pin instead of trying to pull it out from the side. Work your way down the grill while staying directly in front of the grill area you are pulling out. Make sure to pull directly out towards you. Make sense?

Basically, stay on the conservative side. A box cutter ended up being way better than my dremel saw or cutting wheel.

Something to note if you didn't know already. You very quickly reach a point of no return, as you will permanently separate the splash guard from the oem fender. Overall it took me about 4 hours, but I am not particularly handy tbh.
Ok, you got me sold too. I'm going to pick up a set. I might actually get them painted white....but I'll think about that.

Hey gig3m can you post a picture or two of the back end with the BW flares installed I'm wondering how good they look with the full size rear bumper.

Some pics of the DIY grill screen, Smoked LED fender lights and clear LED turn signals.






I had trouble mounting the frame around the license plate. I know this looks like crap.
Does any one know of any other vehicle that has a rear license plate holder like on a wrangler? Why would any one come up with a design that would not allow the placement of a frame?

Yeah, that is pretty weird how they made the rear plate holder. You drilled a hole to mount your plate?

I did use double-sided tape and is holding up ok.

On the license plate, drilled a hole and pushed a bolt thru. I would like to find a better way. Well, cleaner looking at least.

You're a little slow on the uptake. Many of us who ordered in Jan/Feb had a garage-full of mods waiting when they finally arrived. I'm still working through all of mine, and yet pick up new ones as I discover them! J.E.E.P. = Just Empty Every Pocket! Welcome to the party!

Has anyone removed the plastic inserts on the rear bumper? One on Driver side reads Jeep.

If you look behind the bumper I can see push on clips..

Just wondering

Anyone do a rear camera yet? Trying to figure out the best place to mount it. Don't want to drill into the steel bumper. Hitch looks like a good spot but I don't have one!

I have seen a few who installed the cameras. I saw one in the hitch and another in the tire. Go back thru this forum to see if you can find it. I'd not in here, try the main 10a thread.

Haven't seen anyone. If you're up to it, give it a go and let us know (and see) how it looks!

I went the hitch route and love it, but if you don't have a hitch you can mount the camera directly to the bumper without drilling (bottom where the hitch would be or on top and under the spare tire).

I think the website had it around $500 - I have the hitch cam already so I am not considering this bar, but it does a lot of awesome things if only it didn't sit in the crash zone
