Rear Bumper Prep

Prepped my Jeep for the arrival of my GenRight aluminum rear bumper.

I read about clearance issues with the GenRight bumper and the bolts on the hitch receiver. They're entirely too long.
I broke out the power tools to deal with that.

Installed hood blackout decal



Attachment 245458

No matter how clean you think the hood is, clean it again, have a few tiny bumps where must have been some bug splatter or something, but not noticeable if not inspecting right on it,

That is a great idea. Wheel lugs not torqued right can cause the shaking.

Added electrical tape to the strikers to stop soft door rattles

Rewired the brake assist vacuum pump.

Added extra weather seal to the bottom of the passenger soft door. Now seals nice and tight.

Tweaked the zone settings in the alarm motion sensor

Went up to Arapaho Basin for some skiing. For anyone who have experienced the parking lot at a ski area here in the Spring, you'll back me up when I log this as a ski day and two short trail rides....

Took the doors off for the first time. The wife hates the top off because it messes up her hair, so I left it on. (for now).

Plasti-dipped my wheels and key holes. I had sprayed the spare a month ago so the process was easy: remove wheels, clean with alcohol, tape off wheels, spray 4-5 coats, peel excess, cut-n-peel lug holes. Today's warm weather definitely helped!

Fixed my popped fender from last weekend's fun, gave Kate a nice bath only to have the rain start again, and added my new floor mats.
