She got her first bath since my ownership, purchased some Turtle Wax Trim Restorer @ Autozone so I can clean up the Pocket style flares in order to switch them out to the Flat style... She is a mall crawler at the moment cant even go into a gas station without rubbing the back fenders ... and purchased everything needed to make the Mag lite License Plate holder for my Winch On a positive note she has only seen pavement in her 10 years

I know those pocket flares don't give the best clearance, but they sure do look beefy

Its horrible 4" skyjacker lift on 35's I should take a pic of the rubbing going on :/ Maybe I will for my introduction thread that I have yet to start ;D I have been wanting to take a couple trails here in Central WA but I know I will severely damage the rear fenders if I do. Previous owner was an older gentleman who worked out at Hanford. Winch has never been used literally no undercarriage scrapes from off roading shes very clean.

Man it was a busy day today.

1st here is the new Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier and the cool LED 3rd Tail light.



Then I installed the new Rock Guards, These things are super heavy duty and you can actually jack the Jeep up on the side.



I also needed some place to mount the front license plate so I got one of the Roller Fairlead Plate brackets.



So here it is all Trail ready !! I cant wait to get some wheelin in !!!

Does it matter what your Jeep looks like to have those on there? Or can anyone Wrangler buy it and install it?

It's the smittybilt src front. $220. I have one too!

And I didn't do anything.... I got my smittybilt src classic rear bumper and was about to put it on when I figured out the damn holes don't line up!!!! Wtf?? So now I have to drive around for another day without a rear bumper.... That is so stupid! It grinds my gears on how they dont line up

Thanks! A modest lift, a winch, and 33's will drain my account! I want to chuck the rims but might have to wait...

What sliders are those. I have seen these on other jeeps, but cannot find them myself? I have been looking to replace my stock steps.

So, this is not really something I did to the Jeep, but I need to vent. I passed three JKs on my way into work this morning. I waved to all three, and got denied three times, and these were not soccer moms.
Can dealerships start sending out memos? I know I cannot afford a JK, and I don't know if I would give up OldBlue right now if I could, but JK owners can afford a little good old southern hospitality.

Actually I think his sliders, and front and rear bumpers all came from the same ebay store and are not smittybuilt. They are actually knock offs of them.
How do I know???



Both are from E-autogrilles on ebay. I have to say I like them for the price I paid for them..Swing out carrier leaves a bit to be desired but all the bolt holes lined up and has held together pulling a van for 1/4 mile from the rear hitch and winching a 6000# Chevy onto a trailer.
I did go with BCC sliders though since I wanted the ends closed off to the body.

How well does your carrier swing? Mine sags a bit to where I have to lift up on it to close it and is not all that loose to swing open and closed. I need to reopen the pivot and check it out and make sure the bearings are greased up and all.
