Some minor mods done: black logo, gutter guard grill with ez pass behind it, vht nite shades lights, black stubby antenna from antennaX. I also want to tint the flare marker lights but it doesn't seem easy to remove them, is this the case?

If it does, there are things you can do to edit the tpms "line". I think the procal dies it as well as other things that edit the jeep's computer settings

Still underway as temp was a bit cooler here than anticipated, so paint coats are taking a bit longer to dry. Will get it on this week, but here is a preview:

Looks a bit rough in the image due to reflections, but I assure you it's glass smooth! Color is a very close match to the hooks in person.

Just curious, if Procal et al can edit the TPMS setting, can the dealer change it with the StarScan (or whatever it is these days)? Maybe a plea that new tires are the next stop and 35psi is the magic number for them?

Think it's a liability issue for dealers since factory recommended is 43psi.

I am sure it would be, but I had a dealer enable fogs with high beams on my Charger...

Just got back to Dallas with my new 10A. I picked her up yesterday in Northwest Arkansas. Looks well built. She passed the problem punch list spreadsheet with flying colors. All I can do is echo what everyone else has said: anvil looks great in person, and it was worth the wait (I ordered 2/16).

I've already taken my daughters out for a Sunday afternoon drive with the freedom panels off. When we pulled out of the driveway my 7 year old asked if we were going to Moab! Not yet, but we will. Lots of fun times ahead!

Rugged ridge. They are powder coated steel. Can get stainless steel as well.

It just snaps on to begin with, so just make sure it is pressed in good and snug. The bolts you see are just for looks. If on of the tabs are broken the the whole thing gets replaced by removing the tail light and reaching in to release the tabs.

Hang in there, Hulk. Hopefully yours is free of any defects or flaws. So far I have been blessed and no issues with mine. You will love it, we are in Jeep bliss when we are in it.

What color did you use? And where did you get it?

Hey, nothing to be ashamed of
I got a ram as well
Looking to have 2 vehicles lifted

I can buy the quarter ton any day, but the 10A will only come once (speaking of new). Salesman laughed and told another salesman "2 weeks left and he's already looking at a 1500". It's not the wait that is killing me, it's the lack of attention to detail, and the fact that the 10A bumper is offset for a winch. I am waiting until my Jeep gets in before I make my final decision to see if there is anything wrong with my jeep. Either way you all will know because I will be posting my truck or Jeep in here. We shall let fate decide!

Tautomer - the half doors look great! How did you get these? I don't see them as an option on the Build and Price configurator on Jeep.com...were these swapped from a non-10A since Billet is a standard color?

Dropped the tires to 30 psi from the 49 psi they were at and climbed this hill in 4lo at idle. I just could not believe how it just kept on going without touching the throttle at all. I love this Jeep!

Apparently, yes.

Yesterday, after I dropped them to 34ish, everthing seemed good. No light, no issues. Well, this morning, they had dropped to 33 due to the colder morning temp, and the TPMS light came on as soon as I cranked the truck. It stayed on during my drive to work, and all four tires were reading 35 PSI by the time I got to work.

That being said, I did not notice much difference in handling between 33 - 34 and 37 - 38 PSI.

I think right around 34 - 35 PSI seems to be a good spot (for me, anyway). Just going to have to do something to get that damn light to turn off.

So, it's the day that my 10a was supposed to be delivered to the dealer. They are 80 miles away in Cody. Tempted to head up there and wait. Still having faith it will happen. Heading to Moab tomorrow for biking and hopefully in my Jeep.

We had the exact same problem occur, when I took the freedom panels off and put them back on it seemed to resolve the issue.

CONGRATS, out of curiousity, did you get any emails/stage updates between D1 and KZM? I ask because I ordered 4/19, was told last week by IAMJEEP should expect a 5/8 leave the factory date (I assume ship date???) and as of this morning still in D1. Not complaining about D1, others have waited WAY longer than me, just curious to the process. Looks like quite a few are moving from D1 to KZ status fairly rapid, or the 10A spreadsheet isnt being updated as the new status is received. Thanks.

I have gotten nothing from Jeep. Just updates on my own from jeepstatus.com and calls to my dealer. Was on KZL all last week. D1 for only about 3 days prior to that.

What was the charge to paint all four? I have rear OEM half doors in Rescue Green(two JKs ago) and still debating biting the bullet and buying some fronts from the dealer. Mine was "guessing" that they could paint them.

Well, on an earlier post i discussed some paint damage. The worst visible area was just under the front edge of the passenger side hardtop. It's the painted lip under the top. I had about 13 very small NIBS that you could feel. The dealer said they could not do anything except repaint that entire body panel (not going to happen). Problem is they did attempt to repair as i cannot feel the imperfections now, but they are more visible to the eye (whitish). I have a black/red so doesn't look so good.......i'm going to look at pinstriping that run of painted lip under the top, and don't think i have any other options. As said before these are small and most wouldn't notice it but i sure as heck do and it's a new vehicle...

It's a Rustoleum product from Home Depot. I think it was Sunrise Red if I remember right. Will check when I am back at home.
