    Just dropped it off at off-road evolution with 106 miles on it. Barely squeezed all five tires inside. Hopefully it is ready to pick up next week!20190124_110809.jpg 20190124_110148.jpg 20190124_110206.jpg 20190124_110242.jpg 20190124_110233.jpg 20190124_123559.jpg

    Got off the phone with off-road evolution today and they told me the Yeti trackbar still hasn't come in. Said I could wait or use a JKS trackbar that they had on site. I chose to go with the JKS as I haven't heard anything bad about it and am too impatient lol. Got a quick pic on the lift.

    Picked up my Jeep from Off-Road Evolution yesterday and I have been smiling from ear to ear since. The only thing they weren't able to do was the axle gussets. The kit they had was a prototype and it just wasn't ready yet.

    I drove it home and it rode great. A little on the stiff side but I imagine the brand new coilovers will settle a bit plus I didn't have the spare or my winch or sliders on yet. Mel said to wheel it a bit and see how I like the settings, after that bring it back and they will adjust them free of charge to dial it in for me. They also will retorque and lube everything after 500 miles.

    I snapped some quick pics yesterday and did a few of the easy mods. Got the Mopar floor mats installed. Took off the sides of the steel front bumper. Put in my med kit. Installed the Tazer JL and reprogrammed the tire size and tpms numbers. 20190201_125822.jpg 20190201_210701.jpg 20190201_155650.jpg 20190201_155709.jpg 20190201_163050.jpg 20190201_163036.jpg

    Got a couple of beers and a buddy and was able to stay dry enough today in the rain to install the Evo hd rear tire carrier. Pretty straight forward installation but would be next to impossible without someone there to help hold it up and keep it in place while you tighten everything.

    I wasn't a fan of how you have to remove the torx bolts on the camera and brake light every time you wanted to take off the rear tire. So I am copying a member on this forum I believe and am moving the brake light behind the wheel and bending the bracket to make it work. I also cut the old camera housing off and placed it over the camera for some more protection. I'll take more pictures of what I did later.

    Quick update to the tire carrier. Got the third brake light mounted behind the tire. Not the cleanest looking when the tire is off but it's hidden by the tire so it doesn't matter.

    I clearly need to clean my garage a bit lol.

    Last night after the game I was able to install the out back adventures trailgater. Really easy install. It feels solid, doesn't have any rattles, and I think it looks great.

    It's definitely the best color! I'm in the North county area.

    Mine was the whole tail gate reinforcement. It just happened to come with the brake light relocation. This one is designed where it actually mounts in front of the tire but I didn't like how hard it would make it to remove the tire so I put it behind it.

    Killer rig! Good to see what my stance will look like with the coilovers. Finally knocking mine out this week.
