Got the Warn Zeon 10s winch mounted up this weekend. Used the warn winch plate. This thing was a pain in the but to get to a couple of the bolts due to everything being so tight. But it's on a looks great.

Also wired up the ARB dual compressor. Got to use it when I went out to fish Creek canyon over the weekend and the JK innovations under seat mount and tire inflator was amazing. The ease of use is great and it fills up quickly. Saving my back from bending and crouching to deflate and fill each tire makes this money well spent.

A couple of pics from our day run out to fish Creek canyon. Didn't do anything too intense. We had a stock jk sport with a new driver that wasn't comfortable yet.

There were a few flowers but I imagine in the next couple of weeks it is going to be amazing with the bloom.

As for the bumper I think I am going to keep the stock one for a while

A couple questions. I am in the process of hooking this up. I get the "hookup" of the main 5 wire harness that goes to the engine bay, but for the other harness. The one you only use the purple wire from. The end that connects to the ARB, there are 3 connectors. I get you need to use the 3 pin flat connector, but do you need to connect either of the 2 wire white connectors to anything? Why are there so many "wire plugs" on the ARB?

Just making sure the only connectors I need to attach are the 5-ping one going to the battery, and the 3-pin one for the "purple" wire. Surprised there is not a local ground either.

Thanks for the help.

PS, it was real fun trying to use 10mm lock nuts on the backside of the air plates on the seat legs. My hands were not made for that work.

I am by no means a wiring expert in fact I'm very much a noob when it comes to it. But from my understanding with the directions the other two white plugs don't go anywhere. They are there for extra switches, I believe for air lockers. The only connections I have hooked up are the one to the battery and the one connector to the purple wire that goes to the aux switch. I hope that helps and hopefully it is correct, but it has been working for me so far.

Cool, that is what it reads, just wanted to make from another person that installed the kit. I probably won't get to finish it up until next weekend. 2 weeks ago I started a winch install, plus solenoid and front D-rings, plus the air kit. The project is moving along, got a couple pieces left on each install.

Thanks for the confirmation.

Over the past two weekends my dad and I installed the DFG fridge slide and ARB 50qt fridge. I really wanted it on the driver side so I could access the fridge and use the tailgate table. This one was a little nerve racking due to drilling into the floor. I got the idea from a forum member and copied his build of it. I used the 3 existing bolts in the back along the left side.

On the right side is the scary part. I drilled through the floor and riveted nut inserts in.

20190407_105754.jpg


To make the tailgate close I needed to trim the fridge slide so I added an extra rivet and cut the corner and two factory rivets off.

After that it all bolted up great and I was happy with the final results.

The final step I need to do is cut the back flooring so I can still access the cubby underneath.

Well, didn't get to order mine yet. But, seeing your pics is making think about a color matching top. It really looks nice.
Can't wait now to order mine, hopefully this month or next.

Looking good though, can't wait to see more! :like:

Got a few things installed today. Found out I live ten minutes from Baja Designs so went in to check out there lights and was sold on their squadron pros for the fog light replacement. Everyone in there was very friendly and helpful and these things were incredibly easy to install. Plug and play. I chose to go with the Amber lens because I go out to the desert a lot and they supposedly help in the dust.

I also got the Evo mfg front truss and c gusset kit welded on today. Welding is out of my skill set so I had to take it to a shop for that. Hoping this makes the D44 axles last a few years until I can save up for D60s and 40" tires. Hard to take pictures of this since it's all dark under there.

And final thing I did was put the 67 designs phone mount in. Seems to be very sturdy and looks good. Trying to decide if I like the actual phone holder or not. If I don't place the phone in right it hits the power or volume buttons.

Looks awesome. I've got the Evo truss kit and Rusty's rear truss on the way. How long did it take to get the truss to you? Also digging the fog lights.

I actually ordered through another company and it took about a week and a half I think. I'll have to look into that rear truss kit.

@Oversized does the DFG slide lock in both the in and out position?

Just ordered one of the new ARB Series II fridges and starting to look at slides.
