Any issues not telling a dealership you have hood struts installed? I'm picturing your Jeep under a lift/overhead object and the technician assuming he can open it 'low' and it springs up. Maybe I'm over thinking this? Ha.
I decided to go rubber so these OEM carpet floor mats are in need of a new home. Will fit 2018+ 2 Door JL. Used for about a month, the only signs of "wear" are some dog hair stragglers tracked in by shoes. Easily vacuumed.
Feel free to reach out with any questions. Local...
Really appreciate you sharing your knowledge. I don't have any first hand experience with any of these products (haven't even had the opportunity to see one in person). Being from the east coast, deer are the biggest offenders here.
I have seen a few of those hoop options too. I feel as though...
Your JK looks great with the ARB. It's those kinds of stories (couple that hit a deer that you shared) that have me leaning towards the ARB as well. I want as much protection as possible (but as I mentioned earlier, I'm equally concerned about airflow). Do you feel that AEV offers just as much...
Some days I lean towards the looks of the ARB, others the AEV. Maybe I need to see each in person. I'll probably end up sticking with my factory steel front bumper because I cannot make a decision (ha!).
Wow. Do you have a picture of your Jeep/front bumper when it happened? Was your frame checked?
The more I see the AEV, the more I like it (I'm just about sold on the rear - if I decide to upgrade).
Since I've figured out how to add a picture, let's throw in another ARB for good measure.
@JurassicJeep12 Thank you for sharing your pictures, looks great! I agree on the rear. As I mentioned previously, in my opinion, the ARB doesn’t appear to line up with the rear fenders as cleanly [as stock]. With that said, I have not seen the rear in person.
For those of you with the Redline Tuning struts, how much force does it take to close? @Punkindave I am a woman of small stature and like your wife, the prop is tough for me too. Just curious if once open, I'll be able to reach and pull it back down.
@AgentTML Thank you for your follow up. Please share a picture of the Thule box once mounted. Great news that you hadn't noticed an increase in wind noise - that's one of my concerns with any rack system. I'm eager to hear what you think after living with it for a bit.
