What have you hooked up to it so far? I just ran wires and await some new treats.
Hopefully the plastic will retain its' "new" shape after your cabin heats up enough as the weather sarts getting warmer. So far I've just got the Black Box Logistics 20" LED Light Bar hooked for now. I'm going to put a pair of lights on the A-pillars also (the wire is already run), but I'm waiting for BBL to make a decision on some new lights that they are going to make available. As I said in my original post, this is so much nicer than the switch that came with the wire harness!

Quadratec emailed me back today and have forwarded my pin pics to Tuffy. Quick response so far. Local dealer has the replacement pins for $21 ea.

Installed rear adj uca's and adj trackbar with relocation bracket. Up to 75 on the highway with no noticeable vibes, thank the lord.

Pinion angle not quite zero, but not too shabby considering I eye-balled it.

Made my Spare tire bump stops and installed my new spare.
I made mine from an old 1 1/4 inch round sanding block I had in garage.

I called Poison Spyder today and was told that their linked rear bumper/tire carrier combo will be out within the next few weeks. Timing couldn't be any better because I almost pulled the trigger on the Teraflex Hinged Carrier.

How much did you pay for the bike rack? Can you open tail gate with bike rack on? Where you get it? Do you like your jeep? Do you like red? Do you have dual tops?.... Ok just the first 3 questions will suffice :-P

Ordered from Krawl Off Road:

- Engo 10k Synthetic line winch w/cover
- Teraflex leveling kit
- JCR Dagger front bumper skid

Wasn't really planning on getting all of it, but sometimes the deal is just too good to pass up.

Installed my Vector Offroad Ufo's on my hood. Like it a lot better than those big bumper things since I will never put the front windshield down. Stupid me dropped the nut into the hood.....had a fun time fishing it out.

Can you show some other pictures of your hood and in particular the black ehrr.....thingies near the windshield (for protection of your mirors and doors banging onto the hood). Saw them yesterday at a website and this is the first time I actualy see them installed on a Jeep.

Does this photo show what you are trying to see? Those are Rugged Ridge cowl guards. Honestly I think they are more for looks than anything. They are not expensive so it's a cheap mod.

Yep it does, thnx. I was wondering even more cause I starting today reading at the beginning of this thread (that implies starting to read around a massive 560 pages backwards!) and saw somebody (Phobos if I recall correctly) posting a frustrated pic of his dented cowl. You say they're more for looks than anything. Such a dent wouldn't have been prevented you think? Here's the pic btw:

That's a bummer of a dent! Yeah, these might absorb the impact and keep that dent from happening. They are plastic but pretty sturdy.

Ive seen the guards but for the life of me cant see how someone would be likely to get a dent up there. How did this one happen?

When you open your door with the straps off, it causes the mirror to create that dent. My tj buddies call it the birthmark of the JK's.

I was surprised to learn I didn't need a water pump relocation kit for my 2013 JKUR. Daryl from Jcr said they've designed this bumper to make it work with no kit necessary!

I covered my cowl with plasti dip. It hides the dent pretty well.

Angry A broken (windshield) man.

I am again replacing my windshield due to multiple rock impacts. This will be my THIRD replacement in four months. I get that these windshields are flatter, but this is getting ridiculous. The latest came when a semi went by. I'm not even on gravel roads when this happens. Anybody else having windshield issues?
