I got her naked and realized she was dirty, so I got her wet and cleaned her up.

That sounds bad.

I also bought 3 cans of Plasti Dip to coat my windshield brackets (dang rock chips) and grill.

Named the Jeep, did fenders, stubby bumper and DIY quick sway bar disconnects and broke it all in with a little trail action.

Easy. Little tough stretching it at first but here is the best link in the world for the initial install.... pdf, video and all. Scroll down to post 15 and 16.

A buddy and I installed OR-Fab front and rear bumpers including OR-Fab vacuum pump relocation kit, Quadratec Q9500i winch, black grill insert screens, and a black Jeep emblem. Looks AMAZING!

Just put a 2' OME lift with Bilstein 5100 shocks, JKS adjustable front and rear trackbars, Smittybilt XRC front and rear bumper, superwinch EPi 9.0 w/ synthetic cable, 33x12.50x16 Hankook MT tires, and Eagle alloy 16' wheels

I did this all in 2 days. It was a ton of work but totally worth it!

Not today but yesterday, I ordered a RR dash organizer from Quadratec who matched the price from Amazon! Most companies I have asked to do that wont touch their price. (I had a gift card to Q-tec so I wanted to buy from them)

I'm sure it would work, if its the right size, but that thing is expensive!
Just go to an auto parts store and pick up a couple for cheap, along with some hose.

Love it! Really easy install. Back up lights are nice and bright. Also installed a rear view camera in the bumper and the lights help reduce the amount o graininess at night. The space between the tire and the hitch was perfect for the camera, no obstructions. I'm color blind, so it was a good thing I had my buddy with me to tell me which wire to splice into on the rear light harness! We also made the wire extension from one of the backup lights too short initially. Should have measured the distance needed better. Bolts really well onto the frame. Solid. Feel sorry for anyone who rear ends me with that on!

Installed the Rugged Ridge mesh insert for the second time. So it took me about 15min. But still concerned drilling my new jeep for the first time.
