Installed the Rugged Ridge mesh grill insert. I like end result so far and easy enough to take off if I change my mind. $45 shipped from Amazon.

Wrong. A body lift does just that, only lifts the body off the frame. Coil spacers have the same effect on drivetrain/steering as an actual lift.

I installed my 13'' offroad Antenna X. My first "mod." I read that some people lost their reception, but so far it works just as well as my stock antenna and looks SO much better than that ugly thing!

Yes.

Any year JKU top will fit any year JKU model as long as you use all the hardware associated with that same year top.

For example, a 2011 top will not work with 2007 hardware. You need to have the top and all the hardware from the same year.

Make sense?

You're still going to want a few other parts to account for the 2.5" of lift, or the handling will be off a bit. What shocks did you get?

Yeah, but in a couple months it'll be 110░ daily here in Vegas and I'll have to put everything back on so I don't die. Enjoy your seasons haha.

they do work good, and are sturdy, you'll have to bend them a bit for a flush fit, but easy and cheap

They were very easy to install, took me about 20 minutes to take them off drill the holes and put back on the Jeep, maybe 30 minutes. You have to drill two holes in the top and two on inside of the grill, 4 total. I am not a big fan of drilling holes due to not being able to reverse if I dont like, but these holes are not visible at all if you decide you dont like it. Easy mod and look better and much better product than the gutter guard method. Sturdy as well.

No kidding, glad I got mine when I did, I see they just went up some more. Must be the cost of drilling that extra washer nozzle hole...
