Looks great! Can't wait for my order to be delivered. The half doors are the first thing going on! (And then 37s)
What color /specs did you order?

I saw you driving yesterday with the half doors. Something about the red looks kinda cool.

I finally received my Vanity plates from the State of Texas. So I installed them today.

I also received my new door handles for the half doors. I didn't order my jeep with the Proximity Sensors, so I switched to simple handles. Super easy job.

I've got a Yakima Basket I put on when I need extra storage for trips. So I added 2 new mounts to the basket, from Gzila. One is for the Shovel (murder spork) and one set is for the MaxTrax.

Yakima Basket is the perfect width to have pushed to the driver side, so I can have a Rooftop case for my flyrods on the right.

It's also just right for 4 Frontrunner boxes and a pop up awning to fit in.

I have a dream of one day adding the RhinoRack Backbone System, and when that happens I'll have to re-Evaluate this set up, but in the mean time, this is great!

Last Spring I ordered a "JL Limb Riser" kit from Amazon (maybe ebay?). Got it and was not pleased, so I started cobbling together better pieces. Finally, after a year of trial and error, I got it all put together and installed today.

If anyone is interested in the bits and pieces, to put your own kit together, let me know.

Got around to installing the ARB Front and Rear Diff covers. Although the gaskets looked fine, I went ahead and replaced them with new gaskets just to be safe.

Another project that started a year ago and finally got completed.

Only remaining in process project now is the Diabolical Slipstream, which I may attempt next weekend!

Spent a week in the NM wilderness fly fishing for trout. Lockers paid for them selves in one trip. It was fantastic.

I pulled the trigger on a set of Stinggray half doors with premium uppers. I expect to pick them up tomorrow, and will post pics up this weekend.

the knuckles on all wranglers, except XRs, are aluminum. They end up deforming over time which can lead to death wobble. Likely to happen with heavier/bigger tires. Might depend also on the type of offroading you do.

i just wanted to use “moose knuckles” really lol
