My wife is 4'10" and the ACE rock sliders were PERFECT for her as she has no problem getting in and out of the Jeep since we got them. The Jeep is hers too by the way!

Just went and rescued my sons VW golf from a snow bank. Lol. Hooked onto his hitch bar and front hooks on bumper. Pulled him out without knowing he was even there

New bumper and rigid light bar. The fogs actually work better on the outside than the middle of the bumper, go figure.

installed OR FAB Stubby Front Bumper and a Warn VRS 8000. I Say today but it actually took a few days. My typical disdain for instructions meant the whole thing had to come off and apart a few times to get back to missed steps. e.g. warn , why did you have to put the negative terminal on the underside of the winch where its unaccesable when installed?

After we drove her (Rosie) home from the dealer last night I couldn't sleep, so I stayed up all night and installed most of the mods I'd bought over the last few weeks. I finished up around 7am today and then went to bed.

Metalcrafters grill insert:



Rampage hood locks:



Mopar fuel door:



Pedal extenders (not new, just transferred from our old car):

Added my new Teraflex HD Hinged Carrier. Easy install, just as their video showed. Rock solid. I hear they have a new Hi Lift jack attachment option in the works, I will need to look into that.

Looks nice.
Thanx!

Home build jobbie - ally rectangles and u-channels with mild steel supports. The "ammo" boxes are from our local outdoor shop. Overcoated with Rustoleum Non-Slip.

Had it on for the last 2 days - not really noisy but I was driving into the wind for a large part - that was hectic! Drag's a bit heavy but then again - the wind was paranormal!

Got a couple of squeecks - will sort that tomorrow.

Really basic stuff compared to some of you guys, but barely got 1500 miles on mine. Rugged Ridge hood protector went on the first day, and after getting sick of cleaning the mats and watching the floors collect dog fur and rocks at an exponential rate, new slush mats keep it clean and looking nice for days. Eyeing a new gas filler cover and some mesh grill inserts next.

Just picked up my 2013 4 Door this weekend! Did a little bit of "modding..." Stuffed the center bar and sub woofer cavities with Poly Fil, drilled some small drain holes in the side view mirror housing, and ordered my Antennax 13" antenna! Lots more in the works, can't wait. I've already got the fever!

That edge is closed off, there's no way to bump it out. Not to seem like an opportunist, but what state do you live in? I got a stock bumper lying around if you interested

Took a drive upstate New York today for the recent 2 feet if snow. Broke out the snow mobile and put my jeep to work! Did some donuts and drifting in the snow, now that was fun! I'll put the video up later when I upload it to YouTube
