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.
Nice man. I did my wheels today. Took a few hours but liked the result
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.
Sick setup!!! How much did that run you? Was the install hard? How fast can you air up your tires with that? I think I might sell my viar 450a and go with that setup! Good work man
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.
Did 2 rotopax 3 gallon cans, rotopax first aid and preparedness orange contains er mounted to inside of rear door.
Jeepswag hi lift accessory holder for axe and shovel to mount to it also hi lift being held by jeepswag mount
And did air lines from arb twin compressor to rear bumper both sides again special thanks to brett at jeepswag for all parts hoses and couplers needed to do this extremely simple and reliably with quality parts...
Remember that when you lift and go bigger tires the rocks get bigger too.
Worked on installing my rear view video- LCD screen for our new 2013 JKU. Put a LCD that clips onto the factory rear view mirror [bought off Ebay]. I didn't have to lose the map lights then.
I'm looking at what others did for the backup camera. I think I will go with the camera in the spare tire up top.
Can you post how that thing looks flipped up and the quality of the video? That looks super interesting.
