Oh believe me, I've got more parts to buy and will be back soon! What's funny is, aside from a few jeeps out front, you could drive right by the place and never even know it existed. There's no big signs out near the street entrance and even driving into the parking lot, the front door is not obvious. However, once you get inside, the place is nice, clean and modern, just like you'd expect. The fellas that helped me with my order were great as well! Yep, I'd say I'm lucky!

That said, I saw that big pile of MC gear you've got. Your rig is gonna be amazing!
Thanks man, its pretty much one of the benefits of being on lock down lol. not going out basically helped pay for the parts. Looking to go on the jeep come weds hopefully it all pans out.

Installed the spare tire delete kit today. It was overwhelming at first but it wasnt too bad if you take your time. I wish I could've snapped more pics but I was way too focused and I didnt want it to take all night just in case i ran into a hiccup.

I took the spare and started gutting the inside. A lot of videos and tips and tricks online. I took many notes so i wouldn't be guessing most of the time lol. The ORO third brakelight/ License plate light came with a 7' lead to be used for when running the genright swing out tire carrier. I did not use all of it.

The best thing about this kit is that the plate, brake/license plate light, and the camera mount can all work with the swing out carrier. I will have to rewire one section much cleaner once I have the swing out. For now this will do. I am not too thrilled about the camera position. But i can still see the furthest post og the vehicle so I guess that's fine untill it gets relocated.

for now I lreally like how it turned out. Also, while working on this, a random chicken showed up. I was like wtf.

At long last my other wheels arrived. Couldn't wait for the lift so I threw them on. I will say this, the jeep feels more grounded and a bit less body roll feel with it not lifted and with wider tires. You def know and feel like youre rolling 37's but not too much power loss, it still giddy ups lol. I did hit 8th gear on the highway so I'm happy about that. When my Tazer gets here, I'll recalibrate the speedo.

Really like the red on the wheels against the gray Jeep.
How much lift is going to be added?

Thank you. Just the 2.5' Metalcloak Gamechanger. I want to keep it low for now. The fenders will be changed as well to give a little more room for the tires.

So far the 37s hasn’t been too bad. Just about 4-5 mph off based on gps which will be recalibrated when my taser gets here on Tuesday. Been at 14mpg avg but I’m gonna reset that when I fill up next time probably when I recalibrate the speedo. Can’t wait for the control arms to get here so I can install the lift. But so far just driving around town I love it.

Also my CMM A-pillar mirrors arrived. Can’t wait to ride doorless too bad it’s been raining.

At long last my control arms have arrive. These things are solid and stout. The gold is a nice touch too.

Yesterday, after a long day, we were able to slap the 2.5” Gamechanger lift in. I love the height, the look, and how it drives is night and day. I just need to get it aligned and get a final once over and she’ll be all set. I was gonna do an in depth write up but I just wanted to get it done. But here are some pics.

I relocated the e-brake as per instructions and now I have no tension on it. Do I have to adjust it by lifting the center console and turning the adjuster there or is there another way to do it without having to remove the center console? Also here is my friend’s competition TJ which is pretty badass.

Finally got an alignment and got the Jeep squared out and retightened up. Drives like a dream. Even got to stretch out a bit with a baby flex.

It was time to ditch the Dynomax muffler delete and move on to a real exhaust. Although I appreciated the Dynomax at $80, it was starting to sound like a civic all ricey and I was not a fan. Enter the Borla S-Type kit. Love it. No drone and since there’s a bit more of a back pressure the shift points are nice again and you can actually feel the power. Plus it came with a hat.
