Do you have a 4WheelParts near by? They do free shipping when you pick it up at the store.

Removed the spring on mine and it helped quite a bit. Was getting nasty hood flutter after I removed the stock air dam.

Also, use this link to get them shipped free.

Took the top off and pulled the carpet(debating on lining it) installed the slush mats and threw the safari top under the seats. Feels good to be topless again.

Talking Installed

Goter installed: Rock Hard Jeep JK Wrangler Oil Pan, Transmission & Dual Catalytic Converter Skid Plate

Northridge4x4 Jeep Parts: Oil Pan / Engine Skid Plates

Not to difficult, except dealing with the weight of the skid, while on my back under the Jeep

One hell of a skid

Protek is a member here. He does custom work. Can see his work and contact him in this thread.

You can also check with Don over at pixeldecals.com. He did my hood lettering.

My VDP stubby bumper kit was sitting on my porch from the big 'Q' yesterday afternoon. Will snap a pic once I get it installed.

I ordered a few decals from pixel decals, changing the SAHARA and WRANGLER fender badges to black and adding a SAHARA sticker to the side of the hood, also black.

Well... in the last few weeks I have had the MB TKO wheels and GY Duratracs installed, took the carpet out, ordered the Quadratec Floor Liners, put a couple decals on, ordered more decals, sawed the front bumper and put on the stubby endcaps, installed Smittybuilt step/rock rails, had the windows tinted and installed the Trektop NX.

Now just waiting on the stuff ordered to come in.

This is what a $2000 modification to my Jeep will look like March 26th and other than the aircraft Aluminum Nitro differential covers, there is no outward evidence that anything has changed. LOL Thank you Marcus Rose of River City Off-Road! Gears are Nitro 4.88. I have a 2011 Auto Tranny JKU Sport and am only going to run 33" tires. I live on the flat Gulf coast of Texas - no rocks or mountains. I can't believe how much heavier the Dana 44 R&P's are than the box with the Dana 30's are. That's a Detroit Truetrac and both diff covers and R&P kits. I opted for the rubber gaskets for the diff covers also. Not pictured is the AEV procal, which I have and its part of this cost.

Nice color on the Jeep. What else do you have planned to do to it?

Caution!!! JKs are known for hydrolocking real easy, best to cross water very slow.
