The Beginning:
Hey guys I'm Dan, First time newbie with a Jeep but long time car guy (38th car). I come from a Japanese and Euro Tuner styling background. Just sold my 2018 BMW M3 for this 2020 JL Rubicon Recon and I couldn't be happier. Now follow along on my journey to build this puppy up.

7/6/20 Installed:
HOOKE ROAD cargo rack.

Impression: Solid, nicely built piece of equipment for the price. It has some weight to it and was very simple to install. (20min by myself) I do wish the emblem was not embossed into the rack so I could remove it.

Impression: Super easy install even for a Jeep noob. You can literally follow one of the multiple Youtube tutorials and wrap it up in about an hour. Tazer is easy to setup but be careful with the wiring behind the radio. One of the clips is a pain and easily broken.

I cant really tell from inside the cabin. only way I can hear it is if I stand outside by the hood. lol
Thinking about grabbing a CAI just to complete the sound improvement from stock (got a Borla Touring axle-back). The aFe is definitely on the list as is the Volant. Originally interested in the Mopar one but not too keen on having the hood cut? Did you consider that one at all?

I actually was considering either the Mopar or the aFe but since my little brother got me this for my bday, kinda made the decision easy for me.
