It's just the Mopar bar. I mounted the LED aux lights upside down using the mounting points on the bar.

Get some tamper resistant screws on those tails if you value your investment. Looks good though.

We're the LED back lights plug and play? No extra harness or cutting? Give better light than stock?

Yep. They were the easiest part of the install, and are bright. As advised though, good idea to put security screws in as there are only two holding them.

Had a Kenwood KSC-SW10 Compact powered subwoofer installed under the driver seat. Don't need to rattle the neighbors windows but wanted some bass. It actually fit real well under the driver seat and sounds nice.

Traded in the 2012 Ruby red Sahara
For the 2012 black Rubicon and put the soft top on right away.

It came with the Toyo 285/75/17 Open country M/Ts and Motorsport Maverick wheels. I took a 2k hit but those alone made up for that.

So, my jku was looking the same way last week.
I was asked by my neighbor, " Why did you take your doors off????". It was in a tone as if to say that it was a wrong thing to do.

I could only think of one thing to say.... "Freedom!"

I guess what surprised me most is that he is an outdoors person, has a harley, a truck, and RV.

Go figure...
Anyone else get such a strange reaction??

How did the bumper install go?

How difficult was the turn signal install on the fender flare? I have heard it can be pretty painful. Your 10 A is looking great.

Your required to have all working lights as well and one mirror. Inspections can be done at anytime by law enforcement.

Any police officer may at any time, upon reasonable cause to believe that a vehicle is unsafe or not equipped as required by law, or that its equipment is not in proper adjustment or repair, require the driver of the vehicle to stop and submit the vehicle to an inspection and such test with reference thereto as may be appropriate.

I usually kinda question when people trade in new vehicles for new vehicles. BUT I definitely can see why you traded for that beauty! I love those wheels!

Installed my new quadratic trailer hitch and wiring harness. Took twenty minutes taking my time. No bumper removal required. Just need to fidget with the bolts. Looks sweet. Now to go buy a trailer and Jon boat Booyah

Not too bad. First one took about 20min, the second about 10min. I pulled two fender rivets and one plug connector for the fender liner on each side. I ended up using a small punch to push the center of the rivet. Used this for guidance:



These are the old style lights which required wiring. The new electrical connection uses the bulb socket, so you remove the bulb from the factory connection, and then push it over connection on the back of the LED. They are polar, so align it black wire to black wire. Worse case, if it doesn't light, rotate the connection 180. Otherwise, the effort was worth the result!

Yeah. That doesn't happen where I live. Do you have Robocops? Generally cops are more interested in catching meth heads. And really, who cares about a third brake light?
