Hi

Where/what are the arm rest pads you placed on the Rugged Ridge front tube doors?/

Nice! What's the tailgate plate and the matching overhead piece?

Thank you for all the pictures and parts very helpful. For the GPCA Grab handles in the rear and the soft top and I to assume you install those only when the top is off as it appears the rears wont fit with the top on according to GPCA?

All 4 handles fit even with the soft top on. I had to shift them a bit, but they work

Thank you for that!

I'll add that to my list for fathers day as I have way to much on the immediate list already and JLUR is only 3 weeks old.

why did you pick superchips over tazer, just curious as I'm about to buy one or the other.

Very nice! Really like what you've done. How do you like the tube doors? Thinking about picking up a set of rears for the kiddos.

SuperChips was recommended by Premier West, the company that did my 4.88 gears, and also by my dealership. I like it so far. It's got a cool touch screen. I've never used Tazer, but people love them too.

I love the doors, they exceeded my expectations. I thought they would be mainly for aesthetics, but they're super well built and beefy. They're over 30lbs each! I think they would protect you in a crash better than normal doors.
