Newbie from the DFW (Keller) area

Just wanted to say howdy! Just bought my first jeep last week, a 2011 black Rubicon unlimited with a RC 4" lift and 35x12.5R16s.
And

Already added RR tail light protectors, RR front and pax handles, Mopar fuel door, clear turn and parking lenses, and n-fab nerf bar steps. Have already bought more stuff, just waiting for them to arrive and one painted so I can install. SO MUCH still to do, and so little money, lol! I've got pics I took on my phone when I first bought it, but unlike a couple other boards I'm a member, this one doesn't let me add them from it Hopefully that will change... I'd like to do a before and after thread when I'm done in December

Can't edit the first post but the tires are 18s not 16s. Also, I kinda found out how to post the pics! Can only post one pic per post though, so sorry for the multiple posts... The pics are as I bought it, before the mods

Nnedia, it's addictive...that frak'n mod bug bit hard. Since the first post, I've also installed the 10th anniversary hood, RR aluminum hood clamps (badass), Mopar door sill protectors, Vector UFOs on the hood, AntennaX antenna, bedlined the: tire fenders, hard top (inside and out) and front grill (hat tip to Jason and the boys at CamoLiner in Denton), installed the Mopar hood lock, and bought the stuff to do the DIY grill mod. I'll install that this week. Also ordered AEV rear bumper and rear tire mount...not sure when that's coming back in stock to ship though. My list of mods seems to be only growing at the moment too.

Thanks ytf!



mxr, we're practically neighbors...I'm just south of 170 off 377.

So does the 10A hood actually vent the engine bay to release some of that awful heat?

hbgirl, a little but not as much as the AEV hood would. It does look cool though

Thanks Derekhie! How do you like them?

Seem to be very well built and look really good. As soon as I can, they'll get a good testing. Want to see what they look like after they meet some rocks.

Did you order the water tanks with the bumper too? The design seems very well thought out.

I believe they all come with them...at least the place I got it from, that's the only way they sell them.
