I’m actually planning to get 33 inch KO2s sometime this week, I’ll make sure and post some pictures when I do!
Cool. That’s what I’m going to put on our granite wheels with a rubicon take off suspension. Can’t wait to see your pics.

I have almost the same Jeep. Nice looking upgrades. Had a question about those euro parts. Do they house/cover the back of the fog lights or turning lights? I am with you, the Jeep looks 100% better without

They don't really cover them, they might prevent some rain etc. from hitting them from the front but they are 100% exposed from splash from the bottom anyways. If you are worried about the connections you can wrap them in electrical tape as a precaution!

I drove around in some major rain (3 days worth of hard rain)after I took that piece off- no problem. It actually looks like the wires already have electrical tape around them. I agree, can always add more!

Awesome, looking forward to it. Did you find a good dealer to buy from? I'm in your state, very northern most part -- Fort Mill, SC.

Please do. Trying to decide whether to get these wheels or Rubicon takeoffs. Going to go with the Rubicon tires either way.

Awesome! I actually go through there often, I work out of my house in Aiken but for a company based in Charlotte. I think I may end up getting Nitto Ridge Grapplers instead and going through Sams Club, I'm torn!

Hey Everyone!

I wanted to show off some of the little upgrades I have made to my Sport S (Her name is Nighthawk) so far.

2018 JLU Sport S Automatic Transmission - Granite Crystal Metallic with Black Interior

Factory Options:

Anti-Spin Differential (Dana 44 rear axle)
A/T Tires
Tech Group
Alpine Premium Sound
Freedom Hard Top
Convenience Group
Upgraded Polished Granite Crystal Wheels

Dealer Added Options:

Katzkin Heated Leather - Black
Tinted Front Windows to match factory back

Mopar Accessories:

Mopar Grab handles for front and back
All Weather Floor Mats (All Black Version)
Mopar Door Sill Guards for front and back
Dog Barrier for Trunk (Can't believe I spent $200 on a mesh net LOL)
Trunk Storage Tray
Not Mopar but I installed a 50-Cal Antenna in place of the ugly factory rod

I also removed the "Euro" bumper pieces that connect the front bumper and front fenders. I know this is personal preference but I believe it looks 100% better without them.

Sorry for the picture dump but I figured there are some of you that may appreciate seeing the Katzkin Leather if you are considering dealer installed leather for your Sport. Also, all of the Mopar accessories (With the exception of the all weather mats which my dealer ordered) were ordered from Quadratec and I figured it might be nice for you all to see some of them installed on a JL vs stock photos.

Next upgrade will be different wheels and 33 inch BFG KO2s!

Thanks for posting! Looks very cool. But just to let you know you missed one of the pics with crossing out the license plate. ;)

Awesome Jeep! Really like what you have done to it!

Did you get the all weather mats as an option with the initial Jeep purchase? I’m curious if there’s a way to order the all black versions separately.
