Thank you. I really like them.

put a couple of black d-rings with red daystar isolators on the front Warn bumper, sold my carpet since it hasn't been in for months and I plan to monstaline it as soon as i have a few free days in a row since the kit is in my shed.

Also, picked up a pair of hella black magics and mounted them on smittybilt windshield hinges (only had to drill out 3 out of 8 of the stupid torx bits that stripped!), gotta pick up a stock TJ switch to put in asap since i dont like any of the aftermarket switches I've seen very much

Pics as soon as my phone cooperates...

Today I put on new smittybilt xrc stinger bumper and put on/fabricated on new smittybilt xrc tube fenders. It took a little more time than I expected but it was worth it. I was also able to mount my stock blinkers and parking lens on which turned out great

Very easy, good instructions with the product. One of the bolts snapped, had to run to the store to get a replacement. It was stainless, and the nylock nut got jammed. Pulled it all the way off and not cross-threaded, so don't know what happened. Easy fix, though. Entire swap took about 30 minutes.

Hard Top Vents

Removed, Repaired and Replaced the passenger side vent for my Hard Top. It's finished leaking now, so it can handle all the liquid sunshine the Pacific Northwest can throw at it!

It is actually three pieces that are glued together and pressed into place. Getting it out was a little tricky, but once the bottom clips are released, the vent assembly slides downward and out of the top

Drove it to work today for the first time after the axle swap and lift. I'm going to start dropping the T-case tomorrow night to replace the chain.

The stinger itself is schedule 80 and the outside pipes are 40 so the pipe plus the bending of it was 80$ and yes I did all the labor. The bumper is 1/4 inch steel that I had laying around in the shop

Ouch! As nice as those are, and they are nice, I just can't bring myself to spend that kind of cheddar on hood latches! They do look nice though!

Five new Black Rock 15X8 wheels and new BF Goodrich All Terrain tires, 32X11.5R15 being installed right now.

Just got a deck cover to match my bimini top. I'm ordering new replacement mirrors and a new driver's side fender (old one's rusted).

After that, new flares.
