Rock Krawler JL25NL-4S1 suspension kit, CCM door-less mirrors, and Rokblokz mud-flaps.

Just need some 37" tires but since going on existing rims will source locally.

After that the Jeep is officially done as I've declared to my wife :idea:

Received my winch, plate, and closed tow loops today. I am disappointed in the finish of the Maximums-3 stuff, the winch plate has egregious areas missing paint, and the red recovery points have several areas where the coating has been marred off, I'd normally just paint it but I will have to reach out to them, one of my Zeon filler plates is slightly bent and the coating on it is cracking off, adn its a texture that will be hard for me to mimic.

Upgraded my Tazer lite to a full Tazer mini for $65 (half price)
They also have a $100 off deal for a Tazer with the front camera kit.
Wish I saw the 50% off on the upgrade. I still need to do that.

RC rear cargo tray arrived. It is nice but doesn’t fit as well as I would have hoped. It’s a little more rigid than the all weather mats.

Just couldn’t get myself to buy the Quadratec version because of their hideous logo. Really that’s kept me from buying a lot of their stuff.

Still waiting for the good stuff to come in!

Jeeps lots of jeeps
I got around to installing the Fox ATS this week.

Install is pretty straight forward.

Remove 4 bolts: 3 bolts for the stock axle side bracket. 1 bolt at the tie rod.

Install supplied bracket to steering stabilizer.

Install bracket to axle.

Insert shaft end to the stock tie rod mount.

Torque to spec. Check clearance. Drive around and test settings.

I ran into a couple issues. The mounting points on the stabilizer were all oriented in incorrect directions when it arrived. I had to loosen the bolts, reorientate the mounts, then reinstall bolts with blue threadlocker. Not a big deal but think Fox would send them out correct in the first place.

Second issue was that the circular mount on the stabilizer did not fit in the provided bracket as it was designed to. I had to use a dremel to open it up.

I have attached pictures to show these issues. Fox quality control earned a failing grade lol.

The last issue is the small heads on the stock bolts for the axle side bracket. They don't mesh up well with a socket (proper size socket) and slip.

I test drove the jeep at a 10, 15, 20, and 25. The jeep now feels like a go cart steering. Definitely more stiff turning left and right which I like. The wheel does not self center on the higher settings. I don't mind this but others may.

Got my new front and rear bumpers: the Smittybilt XRCs. Installed last night with the Harbor Freight Badlands 12,500 winch.

still need to figure out the wiring on the winch, led lights and license plate lights...but they’re on!!
Very happy with them! Shout out to @doetsch off road for the bumper Black Friday deal!

Looks great! I just pulled the trigger on the bumper yesterday (on sale) and had purchased the same winch a couple of months ago when there was an introductory discount.

I see that the center top plate is stamped steel. Are the end sections stamped steel as well? I don't do any rock crawling but go to more remote areas in Southern Colorado to fish. So I'm not concerned that the bumper isn't super strong. I ordered "Jack" with plastic bumpers so I could pick my own.
