Installed some war paint (mud) from my trail ride up at tahuya state forest and then drove it around town. Stopped at DQ for ice cream with the kids and I watched from my booth as this old man pulled up and parked his pristine Cadillac next to my jeep. He looked my jeep over up and down, shook his head in disgust and grumbled something to his wife. I chuckled, because if I parked next to his caddy I would have done the same thing.

Look good! Which parking lights are those? I heard it was a pain in the butt to remove the fender lights without breaking the clips, but I'm interested in swapping them out for some clear ones.

I was going to do that too, but in a couple of months I hope to have made up my mind on my suspension components and do wheels/tires/suspension at the same time. It'll be easier to sell them not dipped too, but I do like the look.

That's badass. Did it come painted or did you have it done? How long did it take you to do the cuts?

Short arm kit with the fox 2.0 shocks. The only other option I got was the steel brake lines. I frgured I can always replace stuff later.

So far I have been impressed with the fit of the kit and the detail of the instructions. Very easy to install.

The kit was around 500 or so. The install, once I got the brake booster mount on went ok. I mounted the compressor to the bracket before installing it in the engine bay. You definelty end up contorting yourself to get the booster nuts tight.

The distribution block took a couple of "fittings" till I came up with the optimal configuration that let me still clear the oil fill and other parts.

The in cab fittings went fast once you find the foam to "poke" on the passenger side, on the 2013 they used 10mm bolts not torq screws to hold the door straps so I needed to replace them with allen screws to allow the fitting holder to mount.

Fill time is about 3 minutes a tire from 18 to 30. I went with the 400c not the 450 for the faster fill times. Overall satisfied with how it came out. Brett Woods at jeepswag is great to work with.

Picked up and put on some Hi Rock doors I bought . Gently pre-scratched for me (Craigslist). Sunny, little windy today- great day for a drive right? Sure- until I got on the freeway. My hair became a multii prong whip and my face was nearly blasted off. The buffeting in the Jeep was crazy. Apparently they make the JK doors tall for a reason. Not a thing stayed on my seat and my hat flew off. Note to self- take top off or take out rear window if I want to keep my face.

Can you post how that thing looks flipped up and the quality of the video? That looks super interesting.
