Rod, I find it strange that after having owned this Jeep for so long you're just now catching the bug. Oh well, better late than never, right? The sliders look awesome, and I look forward to seeing you back down here real soon.

Truly bad@ss!!!! To bad I don't have extra rails laying around cuz I'd have to steal your idea. All I have that's extra would be the stock grip off our ad-15 and the stock lower for it as well and cannot do anything with the lower oh well you have an awesome idea there though!

Extra Keys! We got keys! Expensive proposition IMHO for such a simple thing. Went the on line route to get the chipped keys ($18ea), then paid a locksmith a total of $65 to cut and program. That was after I found out they were chipped, the two I had made at Lowes are now hidden on the outside to get into the car and one is hidden inside.

Had I known (according to the locksmith) all I had to do was tape (hide) the chipped key near the ignition switch the unchipped keys I had made at Lowes for $3.00 would have worked, I would have done that!!!

Olympic says that the stinger will not fit on the stock bumper. Well I showed them that it will. Also made the stock bumper a stubby.

Paint...





And finished









And the antenna. All is working fine with low SWR readings.



I then installed 1/2 pipe insulation for padding
