My buddy got a JLUR, so i arranged to buy his suspension and wheels/tires.
He had a mopar lift installed prior to his taking delivery.
We went to a shop downstate, and the shop took off his wheels and put them on mine, while he upgraded to some 20inch Fuels on 37s.

so last September, i was talking to my buddy who owns the local line-x shop. he has worked on 2 previous vehicles of mine, a 2007 Trailblazer and the 2016 Renegade.
so we were talking, and i said what the heck, let's do the whole outside of the JL. since i was working at home cuz of covid, i told him to take his time. so it was finally ready around the 2nd week in december. (he had it about 10 weeks) like i say, a more detailed thread can be found in my signature. but here are some pics during the process and some of the after pics of the JL:
