I installed the LOD Armor Lite mid-width today. I ran out of daylight, so Iíll double check the bolts tomorrow and install the skid plate. A couple issues: 1) the screws used to mount the lights arenít great and a couple stripped, and 2) the SS bolts really should be hex head, not Allen head. They look good but itís hard getting a good amount of oomph on them.

Daystar hood wranglers? I used them for a year before installing the JL latches. They were always hard to engage, lol. No sign of weakening at all in that year.

Installed 1.75 front and .75 rear leveling kit with factory isolators retained, and JKS Quick Disconnects. Also, while I was at it, replaced the springs with a set of -59 springs from a hard top Rubicon I had in the garage for a while. Maybe no lift from these, but figured it still made sense to replace 80k mine springs with nearly new ones.

Tensioned my winch line. Figured it was time since I have had the winch since November. I've never done it before, but I followed the WARN video so hopefully I did it right.

I installed a Rancho 2" Sport Suspension Lift.
Adjustable RS9000 shocks set to 3.

Ride seems to be improved during a quick test drive.
I like the look as well.
New tires will come before winter.

I like that top. Would be great here in the sunny northwest.


When this top is open is there an increase is wind noise and buffeting (above just having the tops removed)? especially at highway speeds.

It's an Atlas II transfer case. Independent control of the front and rear axle engagement.

After installing the LOD front bumper, the rear bumper with silver wasnít looking right. I found a guy an hour away selling black bumpers and an OEM hitch. An hour after getting home it was installed

Haven't done anything today, but yesterday I got up at the crack of dawn and went on an easy trail ride with the WV Jeep Club. Then I washed it.
