Thus far, I might have kept $59.97 in my wallet.

-4 pc. frame hole plug set, $12.99
Two plugs are too small, period, and the other two fit rather loosely. Totally at odds with the vendor's ad copy. I should have guessed from the broken English that I was taking a chance here. Whatever.

-Dead pedal, $36.99
Still new in the box. Purchased prior to taking delivery of my JLUS, based on forum comments. Being long of leg, and not expecting the legroom that the vehicle actually provides, I use the firewall as a de-facto footrest.

-Clone of the Willys 4WD retro tailgate decal, $9.99
Also new. Changed my mind after receiving it.

Off subject I know but what fenders are those? Did they come with the lights? Did they work with stock inners? Yea, I need to burn some more money...... 😥
Stock fenders front and rear, but I chopped off and discarded the lower halves. The Rubicons and Saharas have 2-piece fenders that are plastic welded together.

The lights, liners, and fender retention hardware (used to add strength over the factory white clips) are from American Adventure Labs. I highly recommend their products.

It's a very easy install. They have a video at the bottom of the Highline LED's product page on their site. It shows what tools are needed followed by a step by step on the chop and light install.

Rubicon itself is bone stock and staying that way unless a need arises. My flat floor was DIY built so cheap. This said, my Ursa Minor top goes on in March and those things are a pretty penny. =)

I’ve pissed away a lot of money over the years. However, it never felt like a waste of money to upgrade the toys I love which includes my Jeep.

Need to define “waste”. Nothing about my Jeep is a necessity and therefore the purchase price plus about $9,000 in extras could be considered a waste...or a bit of extravagance. That said I work to live...and my Jeep helps me live well.

I live life by the smiles per gallon. 5k down the drain, maybe 1-2k left to go before I’m 99% satisfied with my build 😂

to be honest. i'm not one of those guys that buys crap. (in general term) i focus on bare minimum and necessary things for the jeep. so far i've spent
$348 supernova v4 led bulbs for headlight and fog lights from headlight revolution. well worth the $$ great lighting.
$100 rough country 2" led cube light (30* spot) with windshield mount. the spots are good. would of gone with the flood. but that was my mistake, not catching that when ordering.
$70 mopar locking gas cap. keyed the lock to the jeep key.
$70 2" hitch. just ordered.
$775 body armor rear bumper w/ tire carrier. just ordered.

more to come. and keeping it on budget.

Thinking of getting the Ursa Minor also, question, when did you place your order? Just gauging how long the lead time wait is, thanks in advance
