oil pan skid was a breeze. Clean prep both inside skid and oil pan surface. Apply supply adhesive to inside of skid and then place on oil pan. Hold in place for a few minutes. Take a floor jack and piece of lumber and jack under skid and give enough pressure to keep it on oil pan. allow to set for 24 hrs. Attached supplied bolts and thats it. Was really simple.

Installed the leveling kit last week but just had the Rough Country Hybrid winch bumper installed today. I really like it. I think RC did a great job on the design for the price point. I'll spray it with bedliner next. But I'll do plasti dip first and then cover with bedliner and see how that comes out.

Found out how much of a hassle rain is (and how heavy doors are) when your garage is full of other stuff and you need to go from buck naked to fully buttoned up.

I also see why people don't bother to put the screws back in the doors.

I put mine on in October and take them out in May. I am frankly surprised I haven't lost one yet.

Removed the chrome JEEP logo from the front of the hood. Have the black Mopar logo ready to go on, but now think I might like the clean look of leaving it off better. I can't believe how much time goes into thinking about upgrades, no matter how small, lol............

I was going to paint the one on my old jeep. But like you I liked it better just plain. And it's an obsession. Lol looks good.

I keep my half doors on in the rear... but as someone else warned here on the forums, they once came out of the grocery store to find their jeep stripped of its doors. Ouch.

I think the only way they could be stripped is if someone leaves the doors unlocked. If they are shut and locked, there really isn't a way to get them out of the hinges...I think...

Slam! Even with us soft top peeps our doors are not safe. Unzip, reach in, take! This is why they stay in the garage.

in the last few weeks since buying my new JKU
- doors off, body armor tube doors on
- hard top off - bikini top on
- trek armor seat covers - front and rear
- ebay seat heaters - front and back (these things rock - $100 all 4 seats!)
- welcome distributing grab handles - front and rear
- kicker speaker replacement
- molle tailgate fold down table
- black JEEP logo
- mesh grill inserts
- stubby antenna
- mirror relocation brackets
- dead pedal
- new hood latches
- maglites on the seats
- underseat lockbox

so i've done all the easy and relatively cheap stuff, now it's time for lift and tires/wheels, then bumpers, rockers & winch. and then lockers and air, and then new axles/gears and then whatever else i can replace. eventually i will have a complete spare original jeep sport in pieces by the side of the house!

After getting sunburned a bit riding around with the top down, I ordered an Ultramesh Spiderwebshade.
