What I did last weekend:

Blk Jeep Emblem
Rugged Ridge Blk Grille Insert
Rugged Ridge Blk Headlight Trim
Rugged Ridge Blk Turn Signal Trim
Rugged Ridge Blk Door Handle Recess Guard

What I did today:

DIY Mesh Grille Mod
Philips H13 X-treme Headlights

I had to remove the aluminum mesh mod I previously had to make room for the clips on the back of the RR Grille Inserts. I replaced it with black plastic gutter guard. The lights are making a noticeable difference at night. I have a much wider field of view.

Looks nice Lee.

And I was so, so close to going with those wheels. They were a close second to my Black Rock Vipers, but those looks nice with those MTRs.

This weekend I crises the 1K mark. I do notice the difference in the Pentestar Engine. Feels completely different. It's true what I read about the computer braking in period.

Dumped the busted oem bumper (deer strike), fixed the right front wheel flare, and added a new LOD full width. Now if someone would kindly rear end me at 5 mph so I can get another check toward the matching rear.

I was torn between the LOD and the AEV. The AEVs have a slightly more integrated look but looking into it more, the AEV's are 1/8" metal shells while the LODs are 3/16". The LOD is also $400 cheaper, I just couldn't justify spending more money on a weaker bumper, and I really don't like the AEV rear bumper with the use of the tubing on the lower part.

I ordered the tailgate fold down panel yesterday. Other than that, it's been quiet on my end.

Did you get it with the imperial insignias also? Got mine with rebel alliance and "Red-5" in the middle; turned out great!

Ladies and gentlemen. As previously stated, I ordered the Welcome Distributing grab handles today. What I didn't expect was a call from Ken himself to thank me for my order. There was a slight problem with the order and he was confirming that everything I ordered was correct. He also mentioned that he also sells rubber grips for the handles and I tried to add them to the my order but couldn't. He threw in the key chain as a thank you gift but what happened next was unprecedented. I tried numerous times with different cards, cleared cookies and cache but to no avail. He threw in the grips (a $15 value) as well. All he asked for was to like him on Facebook and spread the word on the forum. I have never gotten this kind of service from ANY company.....EVER. I will try to get the $15 to him because everybody gotta eat and times are hard. I urge everyone to also give him a try. I was completely blown away by the customer service.
I must say I agree 100 percent with this post. Ordered mine on Friday night,Ken emailed me within minutes and said they were packed and he would run them up to the UPS facility Saturday morning so I could get them a little quicker. I then received a call on Saturday morning from Ken apologizing that the UPS facility was closed. I told him not to worry about it and that I didn't expect him to ship them over the weekend anyways. He is a very gracious vendor and truly has his customers best interests in mind. Now he just needs to make other things that I need. Would spend every dime on the jeep with him if I could. Great person!!

Installed my sPOD, some backup LED bulbs, and some Aurora ALO-2PD Spots on my windshield (4000 lumens total!)

Plan to add a pair of ALO-3E Driving lights to my bumper tomorrow... (5600 more lumens!) I'll post more pictures then.

Time for bed...
