I poured half a can of Seafoam in with the oil to clean up some possible sludge, ran it for 5-10 minutes, then rotated the tires. Once done with the tires, I changed the oil. I did look at the air filter and decided I might need to replace it before too long.
I also poured the other half if the Seafoam can into the gas tank with about 1/4 tank.
I'm probably going to put the doors back on and put the windows in the back tomorrow since its supposed to rain At least part of next week.
Did 1 1/2 fender mods today (still need to do the back on my wife's.
Nice job!! Been thinking of doing this now that I changed my wheels and tires but a little hesitant to chop em. Can you post a couple close ups of the underside. Do you remove the liner or just cut it too? Thanks in advance.
Took the backseat out and put it into storage. Then took the dog for a long ride.
She left enough hair behind to make a small dog. ugh.
Also learned that a collar and leash is not enough to secure a dog in a Jeep. I was getting gas and she just jumped over the side and slid right out of her collar. Time for a harness, safari straps or both.
(the Jeep is new, so it was spotless before this ride lol)
Put 1.5 inch spacers on today. Getting 33s soon using stock rims, so needed the offset. Tuesday winch and 1 inch puck to level it out. Going on first off road trip with this on Aug 1 (only going on one rated trails put it is start).
Gassed her up, and drove her through the White Mountains in New Hampshire to the best breakfast spot on the planet.

They're both good looking...and about as opposite as you could get...2Dr/4Dr, Black/White!!
My wife and I are usually very opposite, but our jeeps are very similar. Both JKU's, one black and one silver. They tend to stay so similar because whatever I do to my jeep she wants done to hers. It gets expensive fast!

Installed the Welcome Distributing Grabars in my 2013 2 door Moab. Easy install--under 1/2 hour for two.
They're not cheap (around $95 for the pair including grips and freight) but they are awesome strong! You could probably open your window, throw a recovery strap over one of them and have your buddy haul you out of the mud (just kiddin'). But you can definitely hang from 'em.
The clearly written, color printed instructions advise using a locking pliers to hang onto the factory bolt for the last few threads as you remove it from the vertical pillar so it doesn't fall down the inside of the plastic channel wrapping the windshield pillar. I found my locking needle nose wouldn't open large enough to grab the bolt head due to it being recessed in this plastic channel.
Next best solution-- while thinking about fashioning a cardboard "half pipe to act as a bolt gutter I spied a 6 inch long scrap of thin L-shaped channel (about 1/2" on each leg). It was a left over piece from my garage door opener installation kit that used the channel as hangers and cross braces for the motor. Holding the channel horizontally with its apex in a downward orientation provided a V-shaped gutter to catch the bolt as it dropped out of the threads in the pillar.
Also, use caution while swinging the ratchet handle of the socket wrench around the windshield as you spin out the above bolts--ya sure wouldn't want to crack or chip the bug catcher!
Welcome Distributing should throw in a 6mm allen key with the kit-- my T-handle metric keys wouldn't work cuz the T-handle is too big to spin past the structure of the grabar.
ps While imbibing, be sure to reassert with the wife why you don't throw away hardware scraps from completed projects... ya never know when they will come in handy!
