It is all red. But when you put the head liners in, looks a lot better.

Red face Lifted ...

Lifted hardtop off with Racor lift, and then fought with soft top for two hours to install.

What a pain. It is very tight and took three of us to pull on things to get the front to latch, and then the side and back windows are very too tight to install properly.

Hopefully it will stretch a bit in use, or I can't see the point in having it. There is no way I could ever close it by myself.

The aes rockslides have another benefit! You can stand on me to see what you're doing with the softop bolts.

One challenge with the fog light covers is they don't fit with the silver billet bumper insert. So, I had to remove that until the hubby does some mods to that and puts it back on. I've attached a photo with/without the front insert. The back bumper insert is still on for now. When I get new front/rear bumpers they won't be used anyway I guess.

Last but not least I put a 2.5" Teraflex spring/shock lift on with 1.25" Teraflex wheel spacers and added NFAB Nerf steps. Looking a little better now. :-)
I like all what you did !
I would like to know what is your Tyres size ?
Thanks

I'm glad a Jk owner is using the wheels. I
almost separated and sold just the tires. Looks awesome especially with the fenders cut. Enjoy

Give it a couple of days and the soft top will give. Within a couple of weeks you'll be putting it up and down on your own in a minute or two, and with no real effort required.

I agree with u 100%. Seatbelt should be worn when driving. When I was a rookie in uniform I saw a few first hand accounts of what happens when u get in an accident with no seatbelt. Even had to bag a few bodies. But When I get in the jeep to turn around to line up the trailer or move it down the trail to find a new hunting location (driving a few miles an hour) the seat belt dinger drives me nuts. Always wear your seatbelts when on the road!!

Zach, how did you disconnect your seatbelt chime. Like the others I wear my seatbelt 100% all the time...except, when I'm driving slowly around an opstacle and looking out the side of my door.

Decided I wanted a firmer grip than my paracord handles, so popped for and installed a set of the Welcome Distributing Front Grab Handles - all I can say is "Wow, what an upgrade!" Cord was good, these are incredible:

Also tired of rain finding its way in when I wanted fresh air, so installed a set of WeatherTech's Side Window Deflectors:

I course it's harder to take four doors off instead of two. It's twice as many fasteners.
