So update to my above post - I’ve been slowly installing this kit over the past few weekends, and there are a ton of viable stopping points.
Day 1 - Front LCAs. Note - the bolts for these are INCREDIBLY difficult to loosen. I had to stand on a 24” breaker bar and pull on the bumper with all my...
I’ve spent about 4 hours trying to get those f&*%king brackets lined up, but the brake line bracket hole is always 1/4” off. Should I just drill a new hole, or is there a trick to getting them lined up properly?
Those were ridiculously hard to take off. My air impact couldn't do it (rated to 450ft-lbs), but I eventually got them loose by standing on a 24" breaker bar and pulling as hard as I could on the bumper for extra downward force. My wife thought it was hilarious to watch.
Question - what are the points where one can safely pause the install, or do it in stages?
2) 4x shocks & springs + front stuff (ie the DR lift kit parts)
3) rear control arms + rest of the back stuff (ie the rest of the GC lift parts)
Can that be broken down...
I haven't run into any issues installing the windows in the winter (down to ~ 10-15 degrees). The edges just pop into place once you get it threaded on the slider thingie at the top. I went with the Twill.
Only regret is serious lack of rooftop storage options. Otherwise, I absolutely love the soft top - with the heated steering wheel and seats, I can go to 30 degrees before I start closing the top. Also, cruising around with the top down in winter builds character for my kids in the backseat :)
The amber definitely cuts through fog/dust/snow much easier than the stock LED fogs, but in terms of overall brightness, it's not a huge difference. Most of that is for the SAE certification though- the similarly priced non-SAE certified Squadron Sports/Pros are light cannons.
The one that came with the Zautomotive camera kit. Not sure the FOV but it’s really wide. Objects in camera are much closer than they appear.
already put it to good use though - my neighborhood is getting all torn up for utility work, and now I can see right in front of my tires & pick my way...
I finally got my camera hooked up. Broke the black wire pin on initial install, so I ended up purchasing a near match harness from eBay to harvest the pin and pigtail. Replacement pin was a tiny bit smaller than the original, but after fattening it up slightly with some solder I managed to get...
I’ll post the whole setup later, but this is my most recent project - rock lights & step lights tied to the footwell courtesy lights. Rock lights are also tied to Aux button with a two to one diode so they can be turned on separately.
