So I installed a TF leveling kit a few weekends ago. I run 31" tires now so while it wasn't needed it did give the Jeep a lil boost and fixed the rake. I also think it just makes it look more... Jeep. Anyhow the girlfriend finally noticed it yesterday and said the best thing ever.
"Hey I like what you did to your Jeep! Now we just need to get you bigger tires!"
That is love.

So much extra wrapping and bubble wrap and they COVERED the corners with a couple layers of thick brown paper and plastic wrap that it took me a good 5 minutes to get it fully unwrapped. It was awesome

Here's what you need.

My wife wants steps on Rubion but
she did not like the idea of the ACE rock sliders as it doesn't have a step built in as she is 50 with bad knees. I am resisting just getting a nerf bar for her as it seems sacrilegious.
Anyone mod the sliders to add some flat area for stepping up? It seems angled in pictures so I am not sure how that would work.

I don't personally know much about the body armor bumpers, but the two are pretty much the same price. I can tell you that the Smittybilt is VERY easy to put on and I have a friend who has had this bumper for a couple years now and it has held up pretty well

I was looking at the Body Armor bumper: Body Armor JK-1951 - Body Armor 4x4 Front Tubular Bumper with Grill Guard for 07-12 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec
Is the Smittybilt better than the Body Armor?

Saturday my wife says, "didn't you want to go check out that tool place? Let's go!"
She was referring to Harbor Freight, and yes...yes we did go!
I love my girl too.

|the Kolector||I was getting ready to buy a Bikini Safari top for my 2dr. Need shade for the kiddos (ages 3 and 9mo) for the back. We started talking about it and she decided she wants me to get a full soft top instead, works for me! Oh, the the ESP issue with having 35's, she wants me to get the ProCal, and windshield lights so we have more lighting "if needed" for camping. Gotta get a Harken Hoist so she doesn't have to help me take the hard top off and we can both get in the garage too! I love "necessities"|

|CiDZillA||I had my lady out in my 2dr JK last Wednesday with the doors and top off. At first she was scared of falling out but a few mins later and she had a big grin on her face. I told her I could get half doors or bar doors and she thought that would be a great idea.|

|mckron||Mine loves to climb and our first drive out in the new rubicon she looks and me all shyly and asks if we can get bigger tires so that she can climb even higher, and when I told that not only can we get bigger tires but we can lift the Jeep she started clapping. I love her.|

|BigCat76||My wife hated the idea of me getting a Jeep but yesterday we took the front tops off together (to show her how easy it was) and drove around with the kids in the back for an hour or so and now she is in love with it, also a lot more open minded about mods lol|
