Swapped out the 17"Toyo Open Country M/Ts and the ultra Mavericks.

Had 16" Duratracs and MB Vortex installed

Major instant improvement all around.

Put on my Shrockworks rail sliders! Those guys are amazing! They rushed my order to get me ready before my road trip to Colorado, and even met me at their shop when they were closed so I could pick them up on the weekend. Plus the craftsmanship and look is top notch! I can't say enough great things about them!

Nah. That'd be un-American

etrailer sells a front bolt on hitch for around $170....

In my case, I already have a blue ox base plate set up (tow JKU behind my motorhome). I simply installed a standard 2x2 hitch receiver to the base plate with two bolts. I will complete the project with a weld instead of drilling two more holes....

I already have a rear mounted hitch receiver but the rear door can't open when there is a cargo carrier carrying a cooler....

The front hitch made much more sense...

"Storm Drain" is the hot term around here lately...we've had about 9 inches of rain between Friday and yesterday

Nothing new yet, but assuming everything makes it I'll have a new intake and leveling kit on this weekend.

I did the research. There is a difference in the cutoff between Euro and US bulbs. Took the Jeep through the mandatory inspection and had the lights professionally adjusted to EU standards. I had to buy new tires and rims (mine stuck out from under the fenders by about 1 inch.); modified the front bumper (mine had two shackle points that stuck out about 1 inch); I had to hire a local mechanic to take my vehicle through the inspection. This is normal. They don't like Americans here. They fail our vehicles for spurious reasons. It took five guys on computers to come up with obscure rules to fail my vehicle. It is known throughout the American community here that you have to hire a local mechanic to get your vehicle inspected or you will not pass. We are given special tags for the front and back of our vehicles that identify us as foreigners.

My issue is that they turn on their high beams after I've made it clear my high beams are not on. They are intentionally trying to blind me when they know I am not doing anything wrong. They are aggressive and rude drivers anyhow, so this doesn't surprise me.

I am not choosing the game. I'm just setting myself up to win it.

30 seconds in. The video is pulling the sunrider material back into a "W" shape. This is why your material is not allowing you to put the top all of they way down. Watch the video meticulously and you will get it. Pay attention 30 seconds in!!!!!

Finally got out on highway after traildash install. I can't believe the difference. Had to keep double checking my speed because I couldn't tell I was going 83 mph. Used to struggle to keep it above 70.

What exactly does the trail dash do? I've never heard of it until a few days ago.
