Got the first Jeep Badge of Honor for the JLU with my bro in Florida. Dang are they trails NARROW but a Jeep isn’t a Jeep without some scratches. My bro, who is an engineer and has patience (much more than me) helped me adjust the half doors afterward. Hopefully on the way home to Texas it doesn’t feel like a kite in a hurricane lol.

Checking out pensacola Beach and Fort Pickens. Need to wash the underside since I had to drive through ocean water to get there.

Have ordered a ton of stuff! I'll tell ya, kinda gets annoying to wait 2 months FOR EVERYTHING...I'm in healthcare supply chain so I get it just sucks.

Here's what I've got...
Rebel Summit Front w/ stinger hoop & Skid and Rear bumpers (received)
Warn Zeon 12 winch (received)
Ultrahook in blue (waiting)
TRE red winch synthetic rope (waiting)
RSE steps (have been waiting 2 months)


Oh...an a Vanity plate :)


Got my first oil change an fuel filter change. On my diesels I like to get these done sooner than normal for the first time. I like to get the crap out of the motor and fuel systems.

Received synthetic rope from TRE for the Warn Zeon 12 and my ultrahook. Also received Baja designs wiring harness to connect front lights to fogs.

Got the rebel offroad front bumper, Baja design squadrons, and skid plate on. Winch and stinger going on tomorrow.
Next week I’ll be doing a motobilt rear license plate relocation, rebel rear bumper, and RSE steps

front is done! Bajas, Warn zeon 12, tre synthetic rope, ultrahook, rebel front bumper/stinger/skid plate. Love the look. Probably will remove the skid when I go to the 42’s.

Got the RSE wiring completed and will install the steps this weekend.

Got GearAmerica d rings with locks. I’m liking the small accents of red with the blue. Didn’t think I would like it but not bad with the rubicon red.

Half door hangers done
RSE steps completed - I had to drill out a little bit of the pinch seam bolts on the passenger side but after that all was good. Then one of the magnets broke in half. So needing to get some of those.
Turbo Diesel sticker on

Got the motobilt plate relo done last night. Was hoping to get the rebel rear bumper on yesterday but spent more time on this than I originally thought I would. Need to figure out the back up sensors in the bumper and then I’ll wire the plate light and aux switch for the rear bajas after that.

Worked on the rebel offroad rear bumper quite a bit. Wanted plugs just in case I had to remove the rear bumper and the wiring to be as clean as possible. Probably overkill but heat wrapped the wiring near the rear aux lights just to help a bit with the heat. I still have some tweaking to do with the sensors I think.
