Hey Doc, I went with the Teraflex 2.5 coil lift and Ranch 9000XL shocks. So far so great. I'm considering whether or not I need the front control arm drop brackets. Not sure yet.

donmeca2020 So im starting to narrow my mind down abit with the wheels and tires situation. im now just about 100% sure about 33s with 17 inch wheels.

I recall seeing a few copperhead owners with AEV pintlers, can you guys show me your pics of them on your rig? thanks guys. im leaning towards the black but i recall seeing a copperhead AEV brute with argent pintlers and the color actually looked good on it.

Understood. We with JKUs have the sticker on the pillar. I don't think it's that big of a problem. Probably more concerning for the one getting the doors since they will have two different stickers. Removing them is technically a crime (I believe) so I can't advise you on that. That being said I want to take mine off.

Manual doors are harder to come by but they're out there. The trickier part is finding a matching color.

I have only owned half doors for 20+ years and have never had a problem with ice and snow. And we probably get a bit more here in PA than you in KY. Maybe a bit more diligence is needed. Kicking the heater on for a bit quickly warms the plastic and the ice just slides off. I don't see it as any more of a chance of breaking a window scraping ice off.

But I am really not trying to convince you. Give them a try and see what you think. Like I said you have options. Either way congrats and enjoy the Jeep.

donmeca2020 congrats on your purchase !!! what are your plans ?

Nolyaw That's what I understand. I was just wondering about the VIN sticker on the actual door itself? Does it peel off? Plus I would have to make sure I found some with crank windows. They are nice now, but when the snow and ice hits, not so sure.

Agreed.

It was either this or a $44k JKU Hard Rock Rubicon. Couldn't justify the $18k difference! Actually would've been more like $14k, but still...

I have a 2001 TJ as well, this is my second JK. First one was a 2011 4dr 70th Anniversary model. The motor was incredibly pathetic, didn't last long with us.
Congrats and welcome to the group!

Taped off the line I wanted then cut with a jigsaw. Applied Car door edge guard from wally world to hide imperfections. Then trimmed the front fender wells and re-installed. The back wells I'm going to bedline after I trim more off the pinch seams.

I've been putting this off because I thought it would be hard, it was super easy.

Found a set on ebay for $30 bucks and snactched them up. Going to order these Amazon.com: Yakima SweetRoll Premium Kayak Saddles with Integrated Rollers: Automotive

I cant find your paddle adapter though, is that yakima also?

Cant wait to get out on the water, finally. Bought my pungo in the beginning of the season and didnt use it all summer since i had to way to transport it

One last question, Do you strap the two ends down to your front and rear bumper?
The paddle thing is called a multi-mount:

Amazon.com: Yakima MultiMounts Rooftop Car Rack Oar, Paddle, or Mast Carrier: Automotive

I tie the front ends to the front of my rock sliders. I have microfiber towels between the cowlings and the tie down straps. I connect the rears to the chain loops on the hitch. Those straps will come with the sweet roll.

If you're loading only one boat you can set your rollers at the middle to avoid the ladders. I hit the corners of the ladder mounts a little while loading, but it's not bad.

It was expensive for the sweet rolls. You can probably get by with some mako cradles in the front and the sweet roll only in the back, but I'm too short for that. I needed to be able to load them by myself. They work quite well. I also have the attachment for paddles, it's very helpful if you're also hauling camping stuff at the same time and can't spare room for your paddles inside.

I have both ladders and I couldn't do without them. They are quite handy.

Hully rollers on back of rack

Sweet roll cradles

The rear ones have rollers to push the boat toward the front
Attachment 1459353


These are the paddle attachments. The rubber inserts pop out so you can strap in anything with a 5 inch diameter.
