Jk at 500 miles update

I've had my JKUR for almost 2 weeks now and hit 500 miles last night. Figured I'd share what I've done to her so far.

First, here's what she looked like the day I got her home (it's the only free advertising my dealer gets!)








My first mods were to add a bike rack and plasti-dip my rims black







Next added the Tuffy enclosure (with rubber mat, and anchor rails) and underseat box







Final mod (so far)...Adding truck-lite LEDs





And a picture with the freedom panels off and my bike on her! Swapping the hard top for my soft top as soon as I can find a place to keep the hard top.

Looking good. How are those LED headlights working out for you?

Just put them in yesterday, so only used them once. My initial impression is very good though. I have the "flicker" and the X light artifact but neither of those bother me. The light output is fantastic and the install was very easy for a novice.

Thanks!

The only thing left right now is get the hard top off, but I live in an apartment so I need a location to store it first. That'll probably be it for this year (already spent a lot between the LEDs and the Tuffy).

Plans for later ACE rock rails, new front/rear bumpers, winch, and a small lift. Already have the Rubi mud tires so I won't buy bigger tires till they wear out. And probably other small upgrades.

I hear you on that apartment situation, sucks for mods/storage/parking/etc...but I turned my living room into a storage unit for my jeep stuff...all the roommate can do is just laugh because he knows I've claimed that domain and I'm bigger than him

good idea with the rock rails! as for small upgrades that don't hurt the pocket book too bad, look into grille inserts, clear parking lights, de-badging, rear tail light guards, grab handles....usually things around 25-30 bucks keep the itch away.

have fun!
