2020 JLUR 2.0 Ocean Blue, former owner of a 2000 TJ Sport, spouse drives a Z71 Colorado, but saw her eyeing the Gladiator.
You are right that she is pretty petite and might be 5'3" on a good day. So far steps/boards/sliders haven't been on her priority list however I have presented her with a ton of options that I have seen here on the forum and she has picked 3 that she likes.
Her top choices are:
LOD Rock Sliders
MetalCloak Overland Rocker
Ace JL Night Runner
I have the LOD sliders you linked here, and I love them. They were pretty easy to get on in my driveway, except for the passenger side front-most bolt, which was super awkward to drill without a lift. Overall, I highly recommend them.

We have done two things that didn't work out as intended. I picked up the following longer spare bumpers however they are just 1/2" too short:
Here are the ones I purchased:

On a side note, they were easy to install.
I just did the same for my spare. The stoppers from Lowe’s worked great.!

Love the build! Beautiful well equipped Jeep! And what a great job logging it,..good photos and excellent feedback and suggestions! Thank you for posting!

Put some Redline Tuning Hood Lifts on today. One bolt stripped out so I will be calling in the morning to have them ship a new bracket and bolt. Overall very nice quality product and works super well for lifting the hood.

The second thing we did today was put together a Harbor Freight fold up engine stand with Topsy Products Stack, Rack and Roll 4 Door storage:

My wife got to stretch out the JL muscles on the trail this weekend and her build certainly proved itself. I will try and get a video done by the end of the week.

Installed the XG Cargo GAMA bags and really like them so far. Nice place to carry tools, chainsaw batteries and a bunch of other small items:

Next up was changing out the hollow tubing for solid tubing on the fenders to see if it holds up better. This is .38 and it may be a little much but Lil Mrs. wanted to give it a try and if it doesn't work she will try the .25. I wish there was a size that was in-between.

Scott. You asked for photos a while back of the lights at night for the Baja Designs SAE fog lights so I have attached photos of 1) Fog Lights only 2) Low Beams (LED) only 3) High Beams (LED) only 4) HIgh Beams with Fog (Tazer enabled) and 5) 10" Rigid combo spot/flood light bar only (no other lights on). You can see that the Fog only is comparable to the LED low beam and adds much more near road detail than just the LED High Beams.

Thank you so much for posting this, it is really nice to see the comparisons. We are going to install a KC 10" Flex bar (combo pattern also) next week after getting some brackets fabricated so your demo is really cool to show my wife what she can expect.
