I might've sort of bought another one in the color I wanted so we don't fight over who gets to drive the Jeep today.....

Surprisingly they stay cooler stacked then when I had them in the trunk mounted separate. Freed up some trunk space for sure. Now once I exchange my 12 for an 8 I'll have a trunk again

Holy crap I'm on the 87 tune and it's totally worth it. I'm changing to the 93 tune today on the JK after I get my new gas tank( fuel overflow).

My 04 tj has banks intake exhaust and same tuner and she can spin my 30in bfgs no problem.

Both jeeps are autos.

If you look at the extreme features beyond just the tunes( crawl mode, idle adjusting for winches, tps adjustment, tire size change foe speedo, and probably stuff I forgot.

It is pretty cool and momma loves it. Plus I will never go bigger until momma is no longer with me. I hope it is a very long time!!!

LOL no, I do not have the deck portable, but I added a folding RV step under the nerf bar. It folds out for her to step up on and when she is in, I fold it back under.

I welded the step to a steel bar, the used the same bolts that hold the nerf bar to the frame. Sturdy and removable if need be.

Throttle sensitivity depending on the year

I've been running the 93 perf tune for months. It helps pull my 35's

Tried setting back to stock a few days after mounting them and acceleration suffered, the tune helps low end.

I love my Flashpaq

Nothing new for me; I may have committed a major act of treason in the eye of some jeep owners. I had the stock 255x75-R17's and rims removed and installed 15x8 Chaos 5's with Grabber AT2 31x10.5x15's. These tires are ~1.5" less in diameter, but wider by 1/2". Tread width appears wider since the tires are more square where the tread meets the sidewall. Given that; the AT2's are 3.4lb heavier than the stock Goodyears. The Chaos 5's are aluminum. I haven't determined the weight difference yet, but it should be significant. I figured it should take a lot less energy to get this setup moving...and after driving it around yesterday the response from a standstill is definitely noticeable. I am going to reprogram for the difference in wheel size.

The Jeep spends all week long in the garage except for a few spins in the late evening when the lawns are mowed, gardens are watered and all that. I drive it to work occasionally (85 miles round trip). On the weekend its pretty much all I drive. I have some remote property that I need to access for recreation. Since I'm not crawling or mudding; this set-up is great for me.

Ordered Weathertech side window deflectors for my Arctic. My son's JKU has arrived at the dealership. 5 weeks from order to being delivered to dealer. Not bad!!
He won't be picking it up until mid month, he's in Little Rock AK on air force training mission with RCAF

I heard it was a PIA, especially the rear one.

Not today, but last weekend put on a Curt hitch, then wiring. Ended up being cheaper ordering from Amazon than from a local place that orders direct from Curt. I'll probably swing by their place and get a hitch & ball, though.

I would have gone one size bigger, 32x11.5, but otherwise looks good!

The plugs themselves weren't hard to do at all. Like you I heard that the rear passenger one was bad but I got lucky and had no issues at all . Routing the wires on the other hand is a PIA for me .
