More for the Mall Crawler...

Installed AEV CMHSL. Amazing how much more you see in the rear view mirror with that factory piece gone. The head rest spring mod and moving the CMHSL into the spare tire seriously change the view. My 5' 3" wife is a happy camper now.

Replaced my stock ball joints with Synergy's. First side took about 5 hours and was a huge PITA but I banged out the other side in about 1.5 hours. The horrible ball joint press on the top joint was the main issue...had to use 2 after the threads sheared off of the first one.

swapped out tops, I just need to mess around with the fitment. It said don't install unless over 72 deg, well it was 28 deg so the fabric was being a PITA

I just got in a Rugged Ridge glossy black mesh grill insert in gloss black, my wheels are matte black and my black front jeep emblem is flat black as well, should I paint my mesh insert flat black? If so, what should I use that will be durable?

Flat black grill and wheels as well, the gloss of the insert actually looks good, just enough contrast.

That looks great!

I've been eyeballing the Or-Fab full and mid-width bumpers.

I have 285/70R17 Duratracs and i've been uncertain on what to run my psi at...I have them at 35 now and the ride it pretty good but I know know if my tread is all sitting even on the pavement...I haven't got around to getting some chalk to do a chalk test. The duratracs seem to have a natural roundedness on the edges of the treads so im not sure how flat it should be....... probably over thinking the obvious eh?

Running mine at 31. 35 was too much for me.
