I also love you tail light protectors. Good choice!

Thanks all! Got the Ace Sliders on and they fit perfect and seem really heavy duty.

Yes, the switches on the left of driver are sway bar disco and diff locks.

They get their offset back by keeping your brand new hood.

In a nutshell, I didnt want to mess with the logistics and wanted it on when I went to pick her up. I paid a G for the AEV hood installed, painted and decal-ed. Never saw my orginal hood. Didnt seem to far off from doing it myself.
Was the dealer a AEV dealer or a regular Jeep dealer? I want a 2.5 lift and heat reduction hood, but I want it from my local dealer. Other wise I would have to drive five hours for my jeep (Colorado).

Regular dealer. They had a parts/accessories page and I looked it up there. Maybe performance/hoods(?). Was e-mopar I think?

Want to say the part number started with P15....something. Sorry, dont remember off hand.

Mine was 1375 painted and installed but that was also-in Michigan where it was picked up rather than shipped.

The hood was $1062, dealer installed/painted/stickered. They get their's back by keeping the new, stock hood.

I have that hood too, love it. One of my favorite mods. Got mine after hail damage to stock hood so Insurance paid for most of it.

Great looking Jeep, love that color.

That's bada$$! I'm glad people are willing to go out of their way to avoid a-hole dealers and I'm also glad to see that there are still dealers/salesmen out there that care.

That rig is super sweet, that AEV hood is a great touch.

Any plans for this bad boy? He's begging for a lift and new wheels/tires, those 32's sure do look small

Thanks! Weird my thread popped back up.

By coincidence, I just ordered my 2.5" AEV lift, correction brackets, Terflex tire carrier w/ hinge, and Tread Lightly (Quadratec) floormats.

Will all have to wait until I get back from Afghanistan to play with my new toys though...

Now I need to trick...er, talk...the wife into new wheels and tires...
