  1. $1,000 burning a hole in my pocket!!

    How about a VKS aluminum stubby front bumper, 39lbs with winch plate and... $700 and then you can buy a sunshade or something else.
  2. What do you do with your doors when you take them off?

    I used deck lag bolts used to secure a wooden deck to the back of a house. Probably overkill, and I put 2 per door secured to the wall studs. It's very solid.
  3. 35" and 37" JL pics with lift kit

    Fishbone Offroad. I masked and painted them myself with color match Firecracker Red.
  4. 35" and 37" JL pics with lift kit

    Yes, and every upgrade seems to lead to another upgrade. I went straight to 37's and now on 40's. It never ends. Yours looks great, sometimes I wish I had kept it more simple.
  5. 35" and 37" JL pics with lift kit

    Best looking JL I've seen running just 35's... very nice! Don't change a thing.
  6. JL LED wiring

    I just used the Oracle RGB+W upgrade kit to turn my factory LED's into color changing halos. It's not for the faint of heart. It requires cutting the factory lenses off the housing, changing out the LED chips, resealing the lens to the housing (plastic welder and Oracle headlamp RTV), and...
  7. New bumper

    Love my DV8 bumper delete... such a clean look. I have the Rusty's fascia armor/cover sitting on my workbench.
  8. Post Your Cool Random JL pics. Pics. Pics, pics, pics!

    The angle kind of makes it look that way for sure.
  9. 2.0L Suggested Upgrades

    I've been very happy with the 2.0's performance. It's never felt sluggish and gets 18MPG on 40's in town. I had a 2008 JKUR that got 13 MPG with 35's and the crappy old minivan V6.
  10. Looking For Thoughts on Tazer vs JScan

    Why debate, I use both. Each has their strengths and weaknesses.
  11. Do You Have Decals That Don't Look Terrible?

    Normally I'm not a big fan of wraps and decals, but this one just looks awesome to me. I can't decide if it will look as good on red though...
  12. Walmart tires?

    Definitely go with @Discount Tire with free rotation and balance for the life of the tire and will match any price. They can mount and roadforce balance up to 40" tires too.
  13. Only REAL Jeeps have 2 entries

    This topic comes up everywhere. The consumer thinking they know best what the product is or isn't. Mustangs, Corvettes, Jeeps, what makes it a Jeep... Movies, what should or shouldn't have happened. What actors should or shouldn't play parts. How stories should have been written. Guess what...
  14. ALUMINUM bumpers ONLY. Let's see them!

    VKS aluminum frame chop shorty V3. 40lbs including winch plate (minus 10lbs of metal I removed on the frame chop, so net 30lbs).
  15. DIY power hardtop lift

    Absolutely. I bought a ceiling electric 440lb hoist/winch from harbor freight ($99) and two 8ft tow straps from Amazon ($24) and one large D ring from Amazon ($12). I anchored the hoist to the garage ceiling using heavy duty lag bolts through a 2ft long 2x6 board as a base, then a steel 1"...
  16. Aluminum knuckle failure

    Looks like they make a front diff protector as well that would act as a bolt on under "truss" of sorts. I'm sure welding is the preferred method, but this is made with the same 3/16" steel as most truss kits. I've always understood under axle trusses to be better insurance against bent tubes...
