Gibson axle back exhaust. Supposed to be high tuck, but I had to drop the left exhaust tip about 1.5Ē to try and align it with the right. It would be a very nice tuck if I left the exhaust tips off. Alignment was a b!tch and this is about as dialed in as I can get it. Super tight tolerances behind the hitch and under the frame rails. Iím worried it will knock over bumps when driving, which Iíll test out tomorrow. The sounds is about as good as a 6 cyl can produce, but the look is terrific.

Nice. I installed that in my Jeep earlier in the week. I don't have factory nav, so it comes in handy.

Curious to know if there is a loud drone while High way driving. Thinking of getting a Gibson myself.

Itís good for the most part, but my phone did pop out over heavy bumps. My case might be a little too thick. But overall, I like it.

No drone at all. In fact, I barely hear it over my tires on the highway when cruising, but I do hear it when getting on the throttle. And my concern about vibration or knocking against the frame rails? Not one time in the first 40 miles of use. Iím happy .

Sounds like my kind of exhaust. Can you post the specific Gibson part number. Thanks.

Installed BedTred today

2013 JK Sport 2DR softie
Finally made the move and pulled out the front set of carpets to replace with Bedtred. I thought it was a very easy install. Took about 30 mins to tear out the old and and install the BT. I have only did the front for now. Will see how it wears before replacing the rear. I run without a rear seat anyways so should be easy!

New Master Cylinder

A while ago I installed a Teraflex Locking Hub & Full Float Axle/Hub Conversion. Part of that kit is their Big Rotor Kit...uses stock calipers. Larger diameter rotors...braking distance improved.

Recently, my pedal has become squishy...so replaced the master cylinder last night. I decided to go with TeraFlex's big bore master cylinder...I think it's 1 1/16" versus stock 1" or less??? Pedal is firmer...resolved the squishy pedal. Pedal travel is reduced...should be able to handle TeraFlex's dual piston calipers, might consider swapping out stock calipers sometime down the road.

I had the TJ version of that same mount and the phone clamp sucks. I ended up taking that off and using a 1/4-20 ball base so I could use my X mount instead. No more worries after that change.

No. You would have to take off the hook retainer base from the back of the carpet, drill a hole through the BedTred and anchor it in a similar fashion as the carpet. I did mine this way. I don't like the buckling of mine along the console edges as shown in the OP's pictures and I think that they could've designed it better with a little more thought.

Added Rubicon Hard Rock takeoffs to my Altitude today.

Picked up an AEV 2Ē spacer lift (not installed yet) and an AEV JK Jack Base the day before.

Also installed a Borla Axle back (PN 11818BC) about two weeks ago. Sounds good for a six and no drone. Not for rock crawlers though....

I adjusted the pins on the used two piece BesTop soft doors I bought. My goal is to create more pressure when closed and prevent them from pulling out at speed. I drove it up to 65 with zero movement of the uppers.

Installed some cheapo grab handles today, primarily for my wife, so she'll:
A- have something to grab to get in the Jeep, and:
B- have something to grab while wheeling so she doesn't grab the door latch and fling the door open during a particularly challenging line (true story!).

Took two weeks to ship, but impressively solid for under 20 bux!

I haven't had my 2013 JKUR for very long so I have only done a few tame upgrades to it so far. I have put WeatherTech floor linrs in, Rough Country grab handles, and a few decals. I still have a few more mods to make. I need to get a spare tire to match the other Milestar Patagonia MT tires, when I bought the Jeep it still had a stock spare. Then I'll need a to get a different tire carrier and bumper. Those are the next mods on the list. Unfortunately I have more items on the wish this than I do money.

I did the same thing for my wife - I got the Rough Country set for front and rear. The fronts work really well, hardly anyone ever in the back...

I took the hard top off and put the soft top on. I also removed the angry grill that was on it when I bought it and replaced it with a firecracker red one. I ordered more parts and pieces online. $600 day lol

Time for a new winch from HF. My almost 2-year old Badlands 12000 lb. winch was working great but the clutch froze. Not a big deal because I got the extended warranty. So the hard part is just getting it off the bumper without drawing too much blood.
So the original winch cost $289.95 plus the $129.95 warranty. Add the new warranty and pay the difference in price of the winches and I had to put out another $170 when I exchanged them at HF.
I used the original control box to save some time, plus it was bone-dry inside after almost two years.
One bit of advice, I upgraded all the clad wiring to all copper on the original install. Copper clad is useless.

Installed Homemade Dual Battery Tray

A little time and effort researching, measuring and fabricating. I came up with a dual battery system I am quite proud of. Bumblebee is almost all set for some cross Canada camping this summer.

Here is the link to the thread I started on the subject.
