Cool thanx for the tips, is that the x20, or the xrc series?
xrc 9500, with JCR mounting plate. One other thing. Have a buddy around, the mounting plate just rests in the bumper till its bolted to the frame so two guys to get it to the frame helps and leave all your nuts loose for minor afjustments, tightening only when you are satisfied

Ordered those rims myself. Wonder what size tire (width) you could fit on there.... The more I see it the more I like them. I originally planned on keeping the factory setup for my winter wheels and getting a 33.12.5 17 tire and wheel setup for summer.
i out on raised white lettering version of the c-rated 285/70/17 that comes on rubi - drives perfectly but looks way mo’ bettah

Omg my build sheet is finally available!! I just got the email. With your experience from this stage, how long does it take to finally get delivery? This has been a long 125 days!!

As excited as I am about the Jeep, seeing her laugh and smile is so more important than any physical possessions to me.
Now there’s a man who has his priorities in order. Good work you guys are doing! (Thanks for the lump in my throat, too.)

I hope it does arrive tomorrow for you. No doubt you are counting down the hours....
Thanks, it has been a rough road. Been with one family car since Feb 1. Poor planning on my part but never expected it would take 5 freakin’ months.

My build sheet was found on June 5. Might get the Jeep today. 2 weeks, I’m in CO though so probably a little quicker for you if there are no delays in inspection or 3rd party installations.

Any recommendation for a good running board option for a 2 door Sport? I was hoping there were more aftermarket options for the 2 doors but all I see is the Mopar option.

News from my dealer:

The railcar it was put on has arrived at the rail yard. However, it has not been unloaded yet. I did go ahead and get it hot coded, which means it will have priority to get on a truck and get here. As long as nothing goes awry with the unload of the truck, I am expecting late this week/early next week! I will speed the process up as much as possible on my end!
I may finally be getting my Jeep. :fingerscrossed:

Dude, we may have been on the same train. Mine arrived at the yard on Thursday last week.

It will! All the promo pics I've seen with doors off, top off & windshield down look great! Hope taking the windshield down is as easy as they say it is. I'll be doing it a lot if it is.
Pro Tip: Always make sure the windshield is secured to the hood! Even in “slow speed” situations.
