Just wanted to say what a clean build she has and she has made some great choices in products! I will continue to watch as it evolves.

Loving the build!! Just when I thought I was done with mine, I’m seeing a few things to do!

Not sure if I’m seeing things, but have you added an adjustable rear track bar?

That is the MetalCloak Rear Durotrak Track Bar you are seeing.

Everything under that thing that is zinc is MC at this point.

Should have the winch completed tonight and will get some photos uploaded shortly after.

Awesome, thank you for the info!

How's the drive? Any pull or loose steering? Also how's the exhaust sounding after break in?
No pull and steering is no different from stock however I feel like it has a slight amount of play for me. My wife says it is great and since it is her car, if she is happy that is good enough for me. On my side of the garage, for the last 30 years I have had German cars so I am used to and like my steering tight with good road feel, the Jeep is "a bit" different from that. I did have a CJ7 many years ago and it has been so long I can't even remember how it drove, just that it was a lot of fun.

The exhaust sounds fantastic, quiet when cruising and a nice throaty growl when giving it a healthy romp of the throttle. One of my favorite mods she has done.

Here's a picture heavy update. Protected a good portion of the underside with MetalCloak skids.

Okay, more dumb questions time: Do you just stuff the Trim-Lok tubing in with your fingers or any special tool that helped? Do you happen to have the measurements of what you used or do you just stuff 'n go and once you reach the end cut it off (sounds like how I would do it). Is 25ft enough? Great build you got going here and superb documentation! Sort of regretting my center mounted phone holder over the grab handle option shown. Maybe I'll throw an sPod there instead. Oh boy, now I'm getting out of hand.

There are never dumb questions :whatsgoingon:

It is super easy to install and 25 feet is plenty. Some folks here are trying solid tubing (not hollow) in either .25 or .38 so you might also consider that also. Here is a link if you want more options to scratch your noggin on:
.25 : https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NL4D2T8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
.38 : https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NL4D6S...olid=3QN71B6496WYE&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it

For the installation this video is the perfect way to do it.

Hey Thanks! Just ordered the .38 on amazon. I went ahead and ordered the cargo tray organizer as well because ... why not ...

Our latest addition is a Warn Zeon 10-S on a Mopar Winch plate kit. Added the Factor 55 Hawse Fairlead and FlatLink E Shackle Mount. Added the Mopar Low Grille and Winch Guard and finally we finished off the project with the Maximus-3 Filler Trim Plates. They really make a nice finish for the stock Mopar steel bumper.
Fun side note... Today we got out into some backcountry with another forum member and I "may" have encouraged him that I was pretty sure his Sport with no lift could make it through some snow. Turns out the snow was a bit deeper than we expected. After working out the physics (also known as making attempts a few different ways) we worked it out and the Warn did a fantastic job.

Here is a few photos of the finished install.
First one taken in the Sierras today at a bridge over the Rubicon River:
