Hey everyone, I have decided to post my progress on my build. I have a 2018 Sport S with the manual transmission (so obviously the 3.6L v6). I have the "anti-spin" option as well. If you have any questions or suggestion feel free to comment on the thread.

Put some JW speaker pods on the a-pillar. Installed diode dynamics switchback LEDs in the fenders. LED fog bulbs as well.

Installed the Diabolical Slipstream for some added security for the soft top.
It took around 6hrs due to the instructions(the lack of rather). I am am more than thrilled with the end product. Well worth the coin.

Ignore the bird crap on the seat

Update: I got tired of waiting and installed the Rugged Ridge Arcus front bumper paired with a Warn Evo-10s.

Update 2: Recently preordered the Rugged Ridge Max Terrain fenders. I am very excited to install those.
