Baby's First Bath
Ok, I'm going to report on about 3 days worth of stuff because my schedule has simply refused to give me a large enough block of time to do everything at once, or to report everything as I've done it.
Brought home my ordered 2015 Willy's on Sep 16, without dealer detail because I wanted to do it my way. Finally on Sep 25 I was able to get started on some stuff, so I gave it a bit of a wash with an emphasis on the black parts. Treated my old hardtop (I had kept it during my trade-in) with Mother's Back to Black, then hit the whole rig with Aerospace 303. Installed my front mud flaps, console cover, and door sill protectors and went out of town.
Returned Monday and yesterday was able to spend the day with my jeep and really hit it. I did the following:
Wash painted parts of Jeep
Tape off unpainted black plastic parts
Chemical Guys Clay Bar with Luber
Chemical Guys Jet Seal Paint Sealant
Chemical Guys Pete's 53 Paste Wax
Re-treat unpainted black plastic with 303
Tire Shine on Tires (wheels got the paint sealant and wax)
Rain X on glass
Installed Coverking Neoprene Seat Covers
Installed locking gas cap
Now I'm heading out to hand my grab handles and see if I can put on my new locking hood latches, and that might be just about it for the time being.
Here are some before, during, and after shots of the initial big detail.
Woo HOO! It never leaves the garage again....

Now you have to mod the house: tool storage, hardtop hoist, turn the backyard into your own private mudpit...

|BMWJ08||I picked my 2014 JKRU from the dealer as it had its head replaced. So I brought it home and installed Safari straps as it is getting close to the time where I can remove the hard top here in the Sonoran desert. Glad to get my rig back after 18 days in the shop just 2 months into owning it. Brighter days ahead let's hope.|

Hi, congratulations on the Jeep and welcome to the forum.
Were you intending to post in this thread with the same title as yours?

Finally got it right!!!
Got my Mickey Thompson Baja ATZP3 tires put on and lift kit installed! Went with RK stock replacer coils and I painted them light blue. Replaced the old steering stabilizer with OME.
I loved a video on YouTube with a Jeep using a Teraflex lift and Fox reservoir shocks so I bought the performance shocks as the reservoirs are too high tech for me as a beginner.
Finally drives awesome! Still have yet to take it on the highway.
Not trying to high jack the thread, but can someone direct message me if they don't mind in reference to the coil springs and the fact that the driver side is bowing inward--plus want to ask some questions about more parts I should buy to cushion these things.
My guy is new at this obviously.
Here are some pics -- damn I'm wordy!
