Today I got my Teraflex Recovery Strap Kit & most of my Drake Billet Interior Accessories (missing the E-Brake Handle) I also took the hood to the paint shop & test fitted the JCR Rock Sliders before sending them off to the Powder Coating Shop...I had to remove the Bushwacker Fenders to get these things on ther were designed to fit around the factory fenders...more work now!

The Teraflex Recovery Kit...



The Drake Accessories...



AEV Heat Reduction Hood...



And the Test fitting of the JCR Rock Sliders, all those little pieses of tape are scratches & dents that will get fixed while at the autobody shop...

I'm probably going to buy an iphone mount later and install it. Too bad the one I bought that is supposed to fit on the air vent didn't fit...so much for being "universal."

My dad always told me universal fit means it doesn't fit anything right.
Get a spyderwebshade sweety. It's the best $100 you'll ever spend on your rig. It's 106 right now here in Tucson and my jeep has been sitting in the sun all day. I can quite comfortably go put my hands on my steering wheel and not burn myself. I can't praise those things enough.

UFOs from Vector Offroad. They had a special last week where you could get them for $15.99/pair (normally $19.99 I believe).

You need to order them (gaskets) on their site - they're cheap.

Thanks and sorry for the slow reply. I've been out in the garage trying to finish up the ADA install on mine. Just have to hook up the power and see if it works!

Then I have to do the install on the red one. Routing the wiring was a trying experience for me and I'm not looking forward to doing a second one.

Anyway...on the seat covers. They are wet okole and I bought them through Quadratec. You can buy them from wet okole directly though. They took about a month to come in. Took me maybe an hour to install them.

Those look awesome! GRRR! I wanted those covers but was SURE the green wouldn't match! I ended up getting the Rugged Ridge black neoprenes, which are very nice, but now I wish I'd gone with the WO's!
