Should be pretty close to $1100 or so. I'm considering the same setup. Already have the Genesis kit sitting on the workbench. Trying to decide if Odyssey is worth the price for my needs.

Installed a cyclone light in the tailgate area for lighting. Throws a lot of light when loading and unloading packages at night. Worth the price.

I recognize those calipers and brackets. Dual piston calipers that are on my Dodge Ram! Or at least I am 99.5% sure...

I decided to do an anal clean since I'm the third owner and like things to be as new to me as possible. I pulled the two front seats and vac'd all of the sand, stones, cigarette butts, melted candy and coins from under the rugs. Then I washed the tub and checked for rust and evidence of water.

After cleaning the surface with Windex using a paint brush for a cleaning brush and a rag and a shop vac to clean up the residue I only found one rust spot. It was caused by the back of the plastic carpet clip so I sanded, primed and painted the spot and then covered the clip with tape to slow further scratching.

Getting the seat bolts out with a compressor and a pneumatic lug wrench was still a challenge and I ended up having to use a breaker bar with a piece of pipe used as a cheater to break the hold initially. Still a challenge with not much room to swing with the seats in place and small door openings.

Anyway, got her done and the new Quadratec floor mats and door jamb protectors are in.

This is actually for my son's Jeep (I'm giving him the floor liners to him from my old Jeep)

I removed the metal clips holding the name badges on my Best Top floor liners
then used some Ice maker hose cut into 1/8" long sections to re-secure them.
I also used some black RTV to seal them so no water could leak around the badge.

I did this because water had crept around the badges
and the metal clips had rusted and stained the carpet.

Stripped her down for what will probably be the last time until spring. Rain due again Wednesday, and I plan to put the hardtop back on next weekend. I want the extra room for a camping trip the following weekend.

The part numbers apparently match the front brakes on the Ram 1500.

I had the wheels/tires balanced and aligned. I found out I'm going to need some LCAs to bring my caster into spec. After the alignment, I found my steering wheel was off centered. I could have gone to the trouble of taking it back in, but it was too easy to adjust the drag link myself. It's all good now.

What is the brand name and color of your wheels? I have the same color JK and the wheel choices are driving me mental.

Rotated the tires and finally got inspired, after 71,000 miles, to remove the rear rotors and tighten up the emergency brake. Can't believe I waited so long...

MY TKOs have 125k on them..gave them a little TLC today. The center pieces are level 8s, the TKOS had huge looking frisbees on them originally. I had these put on when I bought in 2012.
