Took off the spare carrier, bumper and factory hitch in preparations for my ACE setup. Took the SAHARA stickers off the sides and picked up a can of Plastidip, gonna do the JEEP emblem and the key lock rings. Now, just need to get rid of the OEM parts....

I finally fixed the damn handle rattle on my Smittybuilt rear tire carrier. Finally nice to have it not rattle. It's amazing what some Bel-Ray waterproof grease and a little bit of felt will d!

Installed dually d2s.








Installation was easy,,,just followed the instructions and with the help of some pictures on a installation thread on here was a breeze.Really like how these lites are small and almost unnoticeable but damn do they put some light out there.I live in the country and go to work at 4am and these really put the light out there to see any deer etc that may be crossing the road.

I used the smittybuilt brackets on mine and i like how they set off to the side a bit.With these brackets there is absolutely zero blindspot caused from these lights,,,,that was another concearn of mine and a reason i bought these.

I mounted the switch above the speaker,,easy to reach and looks good there.

Very happy with this mod,,,one of my favorite to date.

Put the kayak in for the last time today before selling it. Just don't have the time to use it, and would rather have the garage space to wrench and do other projects in.

Kayak funds are going for a Warn Elite grillguard bumper next weekend, and maybe a winch assuming they have them at the Q-tec tent sale on discount.

Sad and happy to be rid of my boat all at the same time, but nothing beats riding back on some farm trails with the Jeep to pick you up.

It's completely up to you, I just like having the ability to add on the jerry cans and rack , plus it comes standard with the hilift jack mount and cb mount, but its pretty expensive

Took another toy(red '70 bug) to a Classic Car show. Here we met up to caravan to the show. I've taken my JK out to a show and got a ton of looks. She sat this one out though.

Nfab step bars. Had the same on a Chevy z71. They are good. Bummed about taking off the rubicon rock sliders though.

Finally got the lift installed... Haven't been able to hit any trails in a month or so since I was running 35's on stock suspension. The lift is Rough Country's new 3.5" Series II with nitro shocks

Love it! That is the same rig I ordered. Although I got full doors. Really like the half doors.

You missed a spot...that NY on the window. Let's go O's! (You all are witnessing a first...an O's fan talking smack in OCTOBER! We usually can't say a thing after the first week of April!)

The mod looks great so far. Do you think it will reduce road noise?

Never thought of that but maybe lol I did it to erase the ugly white inside since I looked terrible with everything black on the inside and out
