I have a 12 Rubi. I disconnected the door plugs. On the door plug end strip a couple of inches of tape off all the wires. There are two purple wires. One has a white stripe and one has a blue stripe. Snip the one with the white stripe. Do this on both doors.

Can't wait to see the difference now that it's getting dark earlier.

I finally got some pictures of my 07 Rubicon the wife drives, 42k miles, 6 speed manual with Sway Bar disconnect and lockers front and rear. I bought it early this year for a steal, possibly the best deal of my long car buying career.

I wanted to widen the stance and level it out a bit so I went with some Spidertrax spacers and a small 2inch Rough Country spacer lift/level kit. Add some Rough Country shocks and a bikini top with rear tonneau cover and wind deflector and Viola!

I added some Quadratrac Neoprene Seat covers and that's all I wanted to do to the daily driver.

I really like the small lift, more like level kit. I love the wider stance with the spacers, it really makes a huge difference in how it looks, to me anyway. It has a full soft top but since we live in Florida we run the bikini top with rear tonneau cover year round. It keeps the rain out while still feeling like a Jeep should.

This is how she sits today.

Presumably that disables the "door open" sensor? If so, it might stop the intensely annoying warning chime, but it will also prevent your alarm from being triggered by someone forcing the door.

Thanks man, of all the built Jeeps and trucks I have owned in my life, it was hard to keep this from getting out of control because it's so damn fun to build them. But since the wife drives it and it's a DD in Florida, this was as much as I wanted to get into.

I love how it looks and drives, just a nice cool Jeep.

What was the deal? Just curious. I wanted the newer engine so I had to look at 2012 and above ended up going with 2014.

Got it no drip oiled underneath for the Canadian winter to help slow down the rusting from all the road salt. The oil they used is super thick and after applied almost made the frame and everything look brand new again. At least until it gets all dirty.

jackmac, can you tell me how much space there is between the top of your front bumper and the bottom of the light bar? Thinking about getting that one and mounting smaller diameter lights upside down. Thanks!

I like her. It's a nice combo of a fun ride and a DD.

Looks GREAT! I'm getting a new '14 jkur in a couple of weeks. I was planning a full 2.5" coil lift and 35s but can't devote the funds right now so was planning on a teraflex leveling kit. I also just received the spidertrax spacers today. I too love the look of the wider stance even though I don't need them. It looks goofy with the tires tucked under the fenders. Anyway, what made you go with the rough country, over the teraflex?

I paid $16,900 for it with 38k on the odometer. The salesman said he had it sold a dozen times but when they came to drive it they didn't realize it was a manual. This is Florida, I guess a stick shift is rare down here.

It has the 6 speed, manual windows and locks, which is perfect for me. I couldn't be happier.

I will measure it tomorrow and let you know, I would guess it is less than 10 inches based on the JEEP plate. Ill let you know tomorrow.

I don't remember why I went with Rough Country, I think it may have been price? The wheel spacers do make a huge difference even though they are just an inch and half or whatever. I too felt the tires looked weird stuffed in the fenders, looks so much better now.

I may go with a 1 inch body lift and see if I can get 35's under there next time I replace tires. For now the BFG Mud's are brand new sooooo they will stay for a while.

Thanks for the compliment!

If everything goes as planned we'll be at the dyno Saturday to test as both go on. I went with Banks mostly due to I think they're the best bang for the buck. A full intake and cat back exhaust system for the price of what a few other companies just sell their exhausts for, not to mention their reputation in the aftermarket world. I also wanted a system that would give a good level of audible feedback without being obnoxious while driving. I've had exhaust systems in the past that performed well but grew on my nerves after a while for being too loud...yes there is such a thing lol. After reading countless reviews on other systems and talking to everyone that would listen, I felt banks would be a solid choice. I'm planning on doing a write up come install day and am gonna post results/dyno charts/impressions etc. Hope that absurdly long response answered your question lol

Haha that absurdly long response was exactly what I hoped for! That's awesome I hope everything goes well, can't wait to see your write up about it! Was considering this myself but like you I don't really want something that's too loud....soooo thanks for being the test pilot

Thanks for that pic of the backside of the grille. I was wondering how to fasten some expanded metal. By the way, where did you get that honeycomb steel?

Picked it up from a small company in Toronto. I bought the minimum quantity and still have enough for another 2 grills after mine is done.
Where in Ontario are you?
