Just pulled of my RR xhd bumper and installed my new ACE midwidth bumper with bar. Waiting on new led foglights and ace wide fenders. Maybe sometime this summer I might see them.

Use a screw driver to move the wire above the bolt, then once you get the latches to grab move the wire back before closing the latches all the way.

Just finished installing wife's Harken hoist that she got for her birthday. Took about 4 hours solo, although part of that was because I had to go to Home Depot and get another lag bolt that snapped in half as I was tightening it down.

The whole thing wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be and think I even know how to tie a figure-8 knot now. Those of you who have installed one know what I mean.

Uh light on its feet? No don't know what that feels like. Anyone else have pictures?

Amazing the difference it makes, I noticed similar results when I installed mine.

I used my head as a balancing point right behind the rear window and once I finally to where I wanted to set it down I slowly tried kneeling down and I'm 6'3" and as I got to the lowest point I could my neck snapped back and my nose was smashed into the roof I then fell as my hardtop landed safely on the mat I set up I then swore for a bit and now I can't even touch my nose.

How do you like those tires so far?
I like them. Haven't had a chance to put em in the mud yet. On the road they run like you would expect a mud tire to run. There a small amount of noise but not anywhere close to being a bother.

Nothing exciting, just extended the breather tubes and installed the cooltech cb mount. This week is Brown Santa week.

For me: EVO Rockstar Skids and Poison Spyder Bombshells.

For my buddy: ARB Diff cover, EVO Rockstar Skids, Rugid Ridge Snorkel and Cobra 75 CB.

Going to be a busy week.

Finally got a warm day to install my Offroad Heros top. Must say after inital problems that took a couple weeks for Tim to resolve I am not really impressed with the fit so far. It was a real bear to get on the first time and one side still has not stretched enough to velco down and the brackets I can't ticghten all teh way down either until it stretches a LOT more. The tailgate area has two open areas (one on each side) that I could pass a roll of dimes thru end wise...not good..

Also with another struggle I got my doors off the first time and installed and adjusted my trail doors. Didn't have to adjust the hinges so that was a huge plus.

Only thing left sitting in my garage right now is a set of rubi rails I have to cut down, Poison Spyder side armor to install, and some stereo stuff. Lots of small stuff to do like touch up the underbody from winter, bed line the wheel wells, etc.

Time to go topless!!

Finally took the hard top off my 2011 JK for the first time this year. Took my girl Alli for a ride! Came home and installed the brand new Premium Sunrider soft top I bought off CL for only $475. The new 2013 Premium Sunrider soft top is really nice! It's much MUCH quieter than the older Sunrider soft top I had on previously and the quality is very nice. Also just recently installed the Rancho 9000XL adjustable shocks. Big difference with the ride from the OME shocks. Love my Jeep!!

I researched both and there were lots of pluses and negitives to both. In the end the Hero's owners were all pretty pleased once they had it on and it stretched out so I went that direction. We'll see I guess...

Just put some new fender decals on. I have the "Wrangler" lettering in black in the mail. Should be here in a few days. Money is tight, but I'm doing what I can do do something to my jeep. I swear, it's a sickness. I think about what I want to upgrade next day and night.
