Hey Jeep Family,

I wanted to start a thread with all the upgrades I've done and will do in the future. I spend a lot of time on this forum taking in all the different directions people have gone with their rigs.

I hope to inspire as much as I've been inspired by everyone on here.


Current Mod List:
  • Tazer JL Lite
  • Pedal Commander
  • Carolina Metal Masters Mirrors with ball mount
  • TMR Customs Black Door Pin Guides
  • Topsy Hinge Hoist Brackets
  • AEV 2.5 RT Suspension Lift
  • Nitto Trail Grapplers 35x11.50
  • Synergy Wheel Spacers
  • Steer Smarts Yeti Track Bar

Did you add the plastic piece between the front bumper and fender? My 2021 Willys did not come with this?

I did not. It came from the dealer with it. Mine is a 2020 though...I've had it for a little bit now and finally getting around to making some changes with it. Maybe the 2021's come without it.

They must have changed it. Here my original bumper and a picture of the Mopar Steel Stubby bumper I changed it to. Look forward to see what you have planned. Love the Sting Grey, I was between that and Snazzberry.

They must've. The new Willy's at the dealership that's near me do not have them.

Color looks great! Also love the Mopar steel bumper. I almost pulled the trigger on a set of them but I may have found another option that I like better.

I put that lift on last weekend and really like it. Couple of things I things I learned:

The instructions said to put the wheels on before putting on the bump stop risers in the rear. I couldn’t see a reason to do this but followed the instructions anyway. Then I couldn’t get to the bolts on and had to remove the wheels again.

You go into the radio equalizer to set tire size, TPMS, etc with the procal snap. I tried doing it with nothing playing. The eq buttons would make a noise but the graphic part wasn’t moving and the procal would slow blink blue indicating a programming error. Turn on the fm radio and it works as described.

I appreciate the info. I can't wait to get it setup.

Pre Lift.

Heres a couple of pics before the lift goes on for reference. The tires are 35x11.50 Nitto Trail Grapplers on the stock Willys rim.

No rub.

Do you have a willys or Willys sport? I think that’s the difference in bumper.
