Love the kit, just installed it over the long weekend...let your wife see it, it looks very innocent and small enough for her not to freak out over ! At least mine did not, until she saw my axles on the floor and springs sitting next to it !! Have fun !

Gorgeous. Gotta make it out West one of these days.

1quick1 I also did some Colorado touring this weekend in the Jeep. Denver to Glenwood Springs to Apsen to Leadville via Independence Pass to Buena Vista and back home.

Apsen - drinking an IPA or 3.










One lane both directions on Independence Pass





Hiked Hanging Lake





Average after around 500 miles a good chunk over 10k feet. 3.73 gears, auto, and 85 octane.

I ordered the 14" SS black powder coated one earlier this week. I was ok with the 13" flexible one, but on our jeep 3-day trip, found driving @ 70 MPH with 95*+ it curved the antenna straight back at an even arch, lol. Over night it straighten right back.... Didn't like this, that's why the SS one is "on the way"! Em...
I definitely lost more reception that that. I live in a pretty good size town with lots of stations and when I scan I pick up no more than 2 stations.

Thought due to hear you have to use a special heat resistant paint...dip or regular paint won't hold at all.

I like the red! looks good! and it's plastidip so if you ever get tired of it you can simply peel it off. good contrast. maybe i'll try some colored plastidip accents on my black rig.

mickey5150 that trip through colorado/yellowstone sure looks like fun! amazing. sorry to hear about your diff but glad you were able to get it all fixed up.

mickey5150 I finished putting my new aev bumper on! It wasn't easy (for me) but I love the new look. Next year I'm going to add a lift, bigger tires, and regear. But for now I'm very happy

For safety reasons is the reason u use the factor 55. It takes a D ring to secure the cable to whatever ur pulling. An open hook can slip off.

Kthulhu I did the ol' shorty antenna from Antenna X today. Quick, cheap, and it looks a lot better than the stock antenna. Reception is fine so far.

This or you can buy the pry bars that the muffler guys use at harbor freight. You just have to wiggle and jiggle the hell out of it. You can also try using bearing grease.

Nice looking ride!
Thank you, it probably wouldn't hold up very well. The black is powder coated. Either way they both don't hold up against rocks.

I can tell you that the screwdriver do not work. I was so pissed with the rubber mounts that I had to use a hacksaw to cut off the muffler. So after that I put more wd40 and used pliers. I found if I squeezed the pliers on the end of the bong and the back of the rubber they were a lot easier to remove. try that first.
