  1. BRIGHT WHITE Wrangler JL Club

    I'm just using 3 Thule gutter mounted cross bars at the moment, it works great for the occasional trip but I'm planning to eventually upgrade to an integrated system as my trips get more frequent and intense.

    Ok, according to my letter, "Parts are now available to repair and upgrade your winch. Please review the contents of this letter and arrange free return of your winch to Quadratec by use of the return shipping form available at HOWEVER, as 3VOLVE's post...
  4. Quadratec Stealth winch recall

    Funny you should ask, I have a letter coming today thats from Quadratec labeled "Safety Recall Notice" I'll post here if it has any new information.
  5. Cross Country Move

    Thank you for the kind words. I'm sure the crew in Flagstaff are also fantastic, but the guys who helped me out were in Las Vegas at the 2715 W Craig Rd, North Las Vegas, NV 89032 location. Just want to give the right shop credit for keeping us on the road and trails.
  6. Cross Country Move

    Day 7 involved driving across New Mexico from Gila to Carlsbad. Our first stop of the day was in Los Cruces to print, review, and sign the paperwork for buying our first house. (If you are planning a long overland trip like this, I do not recommend buying your first house in the middle of the...
  7. Cross Country Move

    We awoke in Grand Staircase-Escalante to a frosty morning, ready for a day of hiking. First up was Lower Calf Creek Falls Trail, a mild, 6.7 mile, winding hike through a riparian ecosystem. It was a very pleasant hike, great for dogs who love water and ends with a nice waterfall. A short...
  8. Cross Country Move

    I just finished a cross country move from California to Rhode Island. My fiance, dog, and I camped in only undeveloped sites from Cali to South Carolina, coast to coast, before making our way north. The run north was just staying with family. Here are the pictures and some details from the trip...
  9. AEV JLU Wrangler Build [SEMA 2019]

    Yes that's correct, we all used the 4" bolt rather than the 5" one and found success thanks to JLURD's experience.
  10. BRIGHT WHITE Wrangler JL Club

    How is the Quadratec stealth light bar? Do you get bounce back from the front windshield?
  11. Quadratec Stealth winch recall

    Anyone have any progress on this front? I've disconnected my positive wire, but I'm camping cross country in February and need a winch so I'm not planning to pursue this recall until after that.
  12. AEV JLU Wrangler Build [SEMA 2019]

    Oh, and for those talking about the water tank on the JK version, they did away with that in order to accommodate the backup sensors that need to be installed in the plastic pieces.
  13. AEV JLU Wrangler Build [SEMA 2019]

    Got it done yesterday after 2.5 days of interrupted work. I'd estimate the install time at about 12 hours total, including wiring. I wasn't rushing and had never installed an AEV bumper before. Overall, not too bad. I was fortunate and everything fit together well enough. The upper light is...
  14. AEV JLU Wrangler Build [SEMA 2019]

    Yep, when you go to mount them the bolts got in at a slight angle and doesn’t fit as you are instructed to drill them. When you go to mount them you will immediately see. They are on their website. I did the trimming for mine today and was able to make it work easily enough without pulling...
  15. AEV JLU Wrangler Build [SEMA 2019]

    Pulled my plastic bumper off tonight with the aid of a headlamp. Digging into the meat of the install tomorrow. 🤞
  16. AEV JLU Wrangler Build [SEMA 2019]

    Do you have any specific tips after going through the process?
  17. AEV JLU Wrangler Build [SEMA 2019]

    Also, for those concerned about airflow with the front bumper, here is AEV's response in their FAQ section, "No. We spent years (literally) developing and testing this bumper in a variety of ways and conditions to make sure this bumper would perform well and without compromise BEFORE it made it...
  18. AEV JLU Wrangler Build [SEMA 2019]

    It would seem hell has finally frozen over! Bumpers are now listed on their website. Inventory is low so they have a lottery system in place for the time being. Both bumpers are very expensive. But, if you're following an AEV thread and didn't expect expensive parts, you may be delusional.
  19. Grand Canyon Advice

    The south rim would be an option. Do you know of any good sites? I'm normally all about exploring to find a good camp site, but with a big trip like this, that's part of a move, I'm trying to plan things a little tighter than normal.
  20. Grand Canyon Advice

    I'm planning a cross country trip in February, its a change of assignment so I'm locked into the date. I'm hoping to spend a night remote camping along the Grand Canyon and am looking for advice on if this is feasible, and if so, where. I was originally looking at Point Sublime but it seems...
