She's definitely excited!

I'm just happy she's letting me do a few mods for some mild off-roading in between the mall crawling. I also think it's awsome that she wanted the 6-speed. I'll keep her

Knocked out a couple more mods today...

- Smittybilt SRC Side Armor Steps
- Rallylights Hella H4 headlights with Optilux XB bulbs
- Side Marker Light mod (i.e. turn them into blinkers)


The S*ittybilts lived up to their reputation and required quite a bit of grinding and egging out of the holes to get them to fit. But, the price is right and there aren't a lot of thrifty options for combo armor and side steps.








The Susquehanna kit was easy to install. I ran the wires along the right side of the engine compartment and velcro'ed the relays to the fuse box. I zip tied the left lamp wire to the other factory wires at the top of the radiator. The only thing I added to the kit was a couple of washers on top of the two ring terminals at the battery. The light output is excellent.











The Side Marker Lamp Mod was straightforward too. Just clip the black wire going to the side marker and tap it into the outermost white wire on the blinker. You can see the blue tap in the picture below. Free safety mod

General Grabber AT2 33x12.50x17 tires installed.

I used a Teraflex adapter and Daystar tailgate bumpstops to mount the spare.

Just the lift kit left to go -- woo hoo.

Yup -- pulled it out last weekend. My wife's dad has a hoist in the garage for his 2010 Islander, so it made it pretty easy

Probably won't get the lift done for a few weeks.

Yes, these are the stock Moabs that come on the Sport S.

I didnt think that wide of a tire will fit... will it rub without your lift?

I'm running 1.5" adapters (see above), so I think they'd be okay and not rub the suspension side of things, but would probably hit the flares at full flex since the tires stick out beyond the fenders by about an inch.

According to this thread, no lift but with flat top flares would be an option too...

Ditched the stickers and "Trail Rated" badge today. Much cleaner look. The stickers were too much for my eyes.

Only about 50 degrees today -- a hair dryer and a finger nail were all that was needed for the stickers. For the badge, I used a right angle screw driver to pull on the badge while I warmed it with the hair dryer. Then just wiped her down with some 3M adhesive remover to get rid of the residue.

Hopefully we'll get her into my buddy's shop this week to install the OME lift kit.
