That shop lighting sucks, but looks like they did a good job. What about your rear fender wells?

hopefully it goes well! As I washed it yesterday I realized there taking a beating! Would really like to protect them somehow! Let me know how it goes

I finally eliminated the rattle in my dome light! After a metric butt-load of Polyfill and an old pair of (clean) underwear (my polyfill got destroyed because it was on the floor of my flooded basement), it's GONE! I can crank up the music and let my Pioneers do their thing! This will be known as "The Underwear Mod", LOL!

Yeah the Recons were plug and play as well. I got them as a gift but the were $400. My biggest suggestion to you and Argent would be to change your Phillip screws to some tamper resistant ones. Again ask me how I know LOL. Most Jeepers appreciate other Jeeps and the hard work that goes into modifying them but there will always be "that bunch of human excrement" that will tamper and steal whatever they can if it isn't bolted down. Before you ask I had IPCW tails before the Recons. Now I have two different tamper resistant screws per light. I figured you don't mess with the lights often so once they're in, they're in. LED's last longer than bulbs and thankfully my lights have been problem free since the install about 8-9 months ago. One screw is a real pain to get out even with the proper tool. I like that.

First Mod on my new Jeep installed front and rear GraBars. These are awesome and highly recommend them. Although my son banged his head on the rear one first time in. One small issue I found is that the front GraBars does interfere with extending the visor all the way forward. Not a big deal just keep them partially pulled down to block the sun. The visors hold well in that position.

That's a welcomed change. Is that new for the '14's? I would still look into different screws just because if everyone now has torx screws, chances are they will have a torx bit. Just my 2 cents.

No clue if that's new for 14 or not - the outer screws are still phillips but the ones that actually attach it to the body are torx..

only bummer thing is the Mopar tail light guards cover up the lowest row of the red LED's so I didn't re-install them

My '12 had Phillips all around...... Maybe a different tail light guard might work. Me personally I don't run any guards. I don't wheel that hard to warrant them. And if you get rear ended, they won't protect anything.

Great looking Jeep! I love Anvil.


It looks like you may have spooled that winch up backwards.
